And just like that, our Bug turned one.

Where did the last 12 months go? It seems a blur to me. One minute we were working on getting her out and the next minute, she’s saying “Mama” and blowing us goodbye kisses. I know I’ve been absolutely dreadful with this blog, but the truth is I just haven’t had the time. But it doesn’t mean to say I’ve not documented her progress in other ways. And thank God for mobile camera phones ‘coz that’s obviously helped with the process as well.

Bug’s birthday party fell on a Sunday, which was perfect ‘coz it meant we could celebrate on the actual day itself. I wasn’t distracted by weekday commitments and was able to throw myself into all things Naomi. I’m starting to realize how much of a Monica I really am, what with my WIP documents, follow-up emails and spreadsheets to get everything organized. And we are blessed with great family as well, who were all too willing to play a part in making the day a success for her.

We kept the day small and simple, and I think this was probably the only reason why it worked. Oh, that and we bought beer… for the adults :)

the eski became a make-shift water play area

her bug cake was baked by her aunt raa – gorgeous, innit

we centered everything around being in the pool

we invited a few same-stage mummy friends

my childhood mate’s girls are nae’s childhood mate :)

and kept the food simple and self-catered

am pretty sure she had a nice time :)

and her little friends did too

A GREAT BIG HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MY BUG!!

I can’t believe a whole year ago you were born, and I’m really looking forward to many more years with you

You surprise me each and every day and your Daddy & I are completely in love with you

I love you, my not-so-little-one!
