Well, here we are today, celebrating the third and last of our July family birthdays.

Happy 7th Birthday Charlotte!

Was it really 7 years ago that we all bundled into the hospital just a couple of hours after she was born, grandparents, great grandparents and aunties, eager to get a first look at this tiny little baby.
I don't think others on the ward could believe just how many of us there were!

And today, when I rang to wish her a happy birthday, there I was chatting to a grown up little girl who was full of excitement and so pleased that she now has a telescope so she can see the stars! 

I do hope she likes her birthday cake,  she's very into moshi monsters apparently.
I have to admit I couldn't rise to this particular challenge, not actually knowing what a moshi monster is.
Thankfully the internet and Emma at Lottie & Jakes came to my rescue and she created Katsuma.
I just made the cupcake for him/her/it to sit on!


  1. Lovely cake and no I didn't know what a moshi monster was either!

  2. Your right it doesn't seem seven years since Charlotte was born. Moshi monster? Another birthday cake your defiantly a July production line, put your feet up now until October. Hope Charlotte liked her cake it looks lovely.
