Ha! I always thought that it's such a cliche when parents say that their kids grow so fast and that in the blink of an eye, they are either in college or getting married. The truth be told... i've no choice but to use the very cliche term too. Coz MX really did turn a year old in the blink of an eye!
Thus far, MX has been a fab baby. She doesn't fuss much and sleeps quite a fair bit. She's always smiley and is rarely in a foul mood.
Here's how she looked a year ago... a helpless little baby in her helpless mother's arms. Helpless i'd say, coz without all the help from my parents, i wouldn't have known how to handle a baby. I took a very long time to recover from the pains and mental trauma from delivering MX. It was a smooth pregnancy and an easy birth i would say, but i was afraid of everything, you see & when it comes to pain, my threshold is probably a big fat ZERO! Boy am i glad that those days are far behind and that both MX and i are healthy and happy now (",)
We didn't have a big bash for MX's birthday. Just a nice lunch at the top of Pan Pacific with both sides of the family. MX got her own cake which she only had a nibble of.
Here's MX with her usual notti notti look.
Here's to a smooth first year with my little kiddo and you've been such a darling, little one!
Maybe you will be able to pick out your own birthday cake next year and have a huge slice of it too!
