Can you believe Prince George is one-year-old today? I know everyone says things like this all the time, but honestly, the ‘Great Kate Wait’ of July 2013 feels like it was yesterday. I remember waking up in the middle of the night to the news Kate had gone into labor (broken by Jesal Parshotam) and blogging before the sun came up while listening to the Circle of Life, then coming home from work (where I screamed very loudly when the birth announcement was made) to my sister decorating my room and baking for me (yes, I was that #royalbabycrazed)…and now George is walking!
A lot has happened in a year – least of which being my inability to keep up with this blog.. seriously, was I on something the week George was born? At least two posts a day – that’s not normal. I digress, back to the Prince of Cheeks! Although we all fell instantly in love with George, it seems as though we discover or are made light of something new on a regular basis that increases our love exponentially. Thank you, William and Kate, for sharing your beautiful son with the world. On the eve of Georgie’s birthday, the parents released the following statement:
“We would like to take this opportunity on George’s first birthday to thank everyone over the last year, wherever we have met them, both at home and overseas, for their warm and generous good wishes for George and our family.”
We’ve all been loving the “Year of George” the past couple of weeks, so instead of doing a full look back on the past year of royal cuteness, I’m taking a look at what I’d like to see happen before July 22, 2015. Some of these may or may not be realistic..
First Words – obviously this will happen this year, can I put in a request for ‘cheeks?’ How epic would that be!?
Photo with Uncle Harry – okay, we have waited long enough. Joke’s over, the world needs this.
Accompanying mom and dad on a tour of America (err, New York) – yes, very unlikely…just let me have my dream.
..but since that probably won’t happen, any tour will do. Preferably one in a convenient time zone?
Royal Play Date – Baby Mia and Prince George… we need a royal cousins photo, just like in New Zealand..minus the grabbing of toys from strangers.
A laugh – is there any cuter sound in the world than a baby laughing? No. Yes, of course he has laughed before..but we wanna hear it!
Chubbier Cheeks – enough said.
Here’s to you Prince George, thanks for making this year burst with cuteness… Happy Birthday!
