Your child's first birthday is a major milestone. One year on and your tiny baby has developed into a real little person: mobile, communicative and certainly making their personality felt.
"Joe's first birthday was a huge watershed for me. I finally felt that I was really a parent - for me, Joe just got more and more amazing and fun to be with the older he got. And as a couple, I was pleased how we'd got through the first year, despite some huge adjustments for our relationship. It brought it home to me that our child was happy and healthy and we were a real unit."
Neil, first-time Dad
"It is incredible how much a baby changes over the first year. It makes you realise that they're not little for long and that you have to just enjoy every stage because they do grow up very quickly."
Fatima, mother of Suki, 14 months
