This week my eldest baby turned 12. She has grown up to quite a lovely girl. Not only is she a great big sister, but she is also Tan’s buddy. You should hear them talking and laughing -they have a blast together and I LOVE that! They have such a wonderful and strong bond. She is definitely a Daddy’s Girl. Not to say that we don’t have a strong bond but I have to say she would definitely rather hang with her Dad than with Mom 🙂 and I don’t mind at all. Besides I have two more babies that love their Momma just as much! 😉 and still wanna hang with me, lol..
I was going to write a long story about her birth and what it meant to me but I decided to keep that between us. You understand, right? (Let’s just say she was my miracle baby in many ways and leave it at that).
For her birthday, we had our family come over for cake that I made, (entirely from scratch -gasp)! Since we’re in the middle of home organization and renovation, which was stressful in itself, we decided to keep the party simple with just appetizers, cake and family. It was actually a nice change from the over the top galas we’ve had in the past. And the way Tan and I cleaned our house, you’d never know we made any changes. (Yes people we gots some mad cleaning skiiiillz! lol)
I did however manage to make one small decoration. I made hanging medallions out of cardstock paper and some curling ribbon to hang. I couldn’t help it! I just felt like I had to do something, anything to have my home look a tad bit decorated and festive. They were easy to do and in the future I’ll share a tutorial on how I created them. Pinky Swear! 😉
I have to say, in the end everything came out lovely and we had a wonderful time with family.
Happy Birthday to my sweet special girl. My very first born! We love you so much!! God Bless You
