This Sunday, 1st February, my blog is 1 Year Old! We can’t quite believe it! This pictures are of me – from the day I was born up to my first birthday.
This is the first blog post I wrote, I want to share it with you again – almost a whole year later….
“Hello there. I’m Ickle Pickle. I am a 15 month old baby boy, living in rural Wales. I’m new to the internet, and all the social media delights. I am about to set up my twitter account to compliment my blog. I’m not sure what I’m doing, but my mummy uses the internet all the time. She has facebook, twitter, etc etc mainly for her businesses. She suggested I set up my own blog, twitter etc to explore, express myself and share my life. I will be sharing my days with you, and also introducing you to my family, and talking about my life so far. I was born on 12 October 2012. 12-10-12 pretty cool huh? I was born at 2.11am on a Friday morning, and I weighed 8lb 7.5oz The .5 is important! I will tell you about my arrival another time.
My mummy says she always knew I was coming. She says she always knew she would have four children, and she knew that I’d arrive later in her life. She was 40 when she became pregnant, and 41 when I was born. She is 43 this summer. When I was born, my sisters were 16 and nearly 13, and my brother was 10. So, it was a big year for all of us. We live in a lovely house, on a very small estate in a small town in Wales. Our lives are very busy, now my sisters are 17 (18 in July), and 14, and my brother is 11. He is Luke, he went to big school last September, Lea who is 14 has to choose her options next month, options for what I don’t know, but it seems a big deal, and MeeMee is doing her A levels. She is going to a place called University in September, I hope it’s not too far away. My daddy doesn’t live with us. I’ve heard mummy say it’s a long story to everyone, maybe one day she’ll tell me. I miss my daddy, he does come to stay at weekends, but sometimes he doesn’t stay long. Considering I am so little and new here, my life is complicated. But I love it, and I love my family. I hope you come to love me too xx”
