Yep a whole year since Charlie was born so he celebrated in style - with more of a cake-pat than smash, but I think he enjoyed himself all the same!
I've know Nick a long time, we knew each other from kicking around in the village but became close friends when he landed a job at the local Burger King where I was already working at. Since then we've had many adventures, including quite a few memorable nights out!
Around the time Katie and I got together, Nick met Gemma, so we've had a lot in common the past few years with our new little families too; Charlie is a really happy little chappie and is brave and comfortable with everyone (as far as I can tell), when Gemma suggested we try a cake smash there wasn't any real doubt that he'd love it.
We managed to get together just after his first birthday and after a chat and a drink we got the cake out and started snapping away - although he was a little unsure to begin with, Charlie soon got involved, even if a spoon was needed to explore the middle of the cake! He seemed to have fun and I think the photos have captured it pretty well - Happy Birthday Charlie!
