Those of you who follow my blog, or have visited in the past week, will know the Heartfelt story of little Miss Caitlin. Having started life as a baby who may never come home, I’m sure you can imagine how ecstatic we are to be wishing Caitlin a very happy first birthday!!
At the start of the party, Caitlin wore a beautifully hand-crafted gown created by her grandmother. The detail in the dress is absolutely exquisite! Caitlin posed for photographs in the same dress earlier this year, which you can see in another post about Caitlin’s Heartfelt story.
Caitlin’s favourite nurse from the Mater partied with her. Amanda Cowan was there when Caitlin was born and has had a special and lovely relationship with her in the past year. She is an exceptional person. 🙂
Fairy Raine from Fairy Lane, who has also known Caitlin from birth, came along to wish Caitlin a happy birthday and paint the other children’s faces. She was in great demand and James (pictured) loved his ‘red dinosaur’… until he rubbed it off and wanted a ‘red tiger’!!
Caitlin’s birthday cake was beautiful and, like all one-year-olds, she needed a little hand to blow out the candles. Her Daddy was only too happy to oblige!
So Happy Birthday to the lovely Miss Caitlin! We look forward to many more happy years and wish you well for any tough times you have with your health. You certainly don’t let to seem your illness hold you back!! Love to you and your Mum and Dad – Carolyn and Jarad!
