S: Frankie Malcolm: An Autobiography!
FC: An Autobiography | Frankie Malcolm
1: I was born at 7:24pm, on 31st October 2010, at the Heath Hospital in Cardiff (I wasn't actually due until the end of November but I decided I wanted to turn up on Halloween, so that I could put the 'treat' in trick or treat!) | My name is Frankie | (AKA: Frankie Buttons, AKA, The Button, AKA Baby Alien X)
2: Here I am with my wonderful Mummy, Vicky. You can tell how much she loves me and how thrilled she is to be holding me in her arms but I'm not sure how she's managing to look so beautiful, so soon after bringing me into the world
3: This is my Daddy, Anthony. Looks like Mummy's got some competition for the title of 'most smitten person in the room'... My Mummy and Daddy love me all the world!
4: I am my parents' second child. Here is my big brother, and best friend, Oscar
5: Oscar is three years older than me. He's a very kind brother and he always shares his toys with me.
6: Here are my Grandparents | Grampy John | Nana Jen
7: Bampy Ronnie | Nan-Nan Mags | All four of my Grandparents love me more than words can say and they are all extremely proud of me
8: This is me with my Auntie Claire. Oscar warned me about her repeated attempts to shove him up her jumper and head for the hills... something which she has tried to do with me on several occasions
9: Of course, by the time I arrived, my parents were already experts in all the basics, like nappy changing, bathtime and sleep deprivation. | Luckily for them, I was always happy to grab 40 winks... as long as one of them was available to act as a pillow!
10: It didn't take long before I started to turn into a proper little man...
12: ...and soon I was celebrating my first Christmas.. Some of the festive outfits that were chosen on my behalf were a little controversial but I was cute enough to carry them off... | MERRY CHRISTMAS!
13: And once I started.... | It was at about this time that I started to flash my beautiful smile
14: ...I couldn't stop!
15: In fact, my grin got even more ridiculously cute once my teeth started to arrive
16: As well as model good looks, I also started to develop an epic appetite...
17: I took my food so seriously that I even started to dress for dinner
18: One of my favourite things to do has always been to spend time with my older cousins, including Jaynie and Ellie
20: But when I was 9 months old, my Auntie Claire and Uncle Leigh gave me a younger cousin, Robyn.. I was excited to be introduced to her | and fascinated by how tiny she was...
21: I'm sure I was never this small!
22: I've been learning to stand up by practicing in Davros and in my cot but now I can almost do it on my own...
23: ...which has led me to discover a new talent... | I'll be running rings around everyone before they know it
24: I've also been working on my words and now I can say: 'Mama', 'Bye Bye', 'Bamp' and 'Bubba'
25: I'm trying new words everyday so I can keep up with my chatterbox big Brother | Speaking of Oscar...
26: Here we are sharing some good times together
28: More photos of me being gorgeous...
33: Tomorrow is my first birthday. All my friends and family will be there to celebrate with me. The last year has flown by and it's seen me grow from a tiny little person to a big, clever boy who can walk and talk (after a fashion) and melt hearts with my beautiful smile. I can't wait to see what the next year has in store for me....
