It seems impossible but Theo is now 1! We had a nice gathering of our friends here on the day after his birthday. He's not quite walking independantly but can walk pretty well with something to push.
My mum's visiting for three weeks, which is a mixed blessing. It is good to have her here and I'm pleased that Theo gets a chance to get to know her again but it's also hard work. Somehow she manages to put me on the defensive very easily.
