On December 7th was my daughter’s 2nd birthday. The family celebrated it on December 9th because it was Sunday. No work, no school and everybody is available. It was a special day especially for us (hubby and I). It was fun, exciting and tiring at the same time. Hubby and I did the shopping and mom helped in preparing the food. I am thankful for relatives and friends who came to celebrate. I am also grateful to our families across other cities and abroad which in one way or another have extended their blessings and greetings.
I was overwhelmed because last year Gillian was so young and now she’s impossibly two and had gotten so big. She was so amazing this entire year. She had learned a lot of things and made us also realized and learned so much about responsibilities. We made small and big decisions which greatly consider her welfare. We moved to a new place, built a home, switched jobs and started a fresh life. I am so proud of her for being simply amiable and I can’t ever imagine being apart from her for even a moment anymore.
We did a small party where neighbors and families enjoy the party foods and the chats. I believe that Gillian was aware that it’s her party but she was awed by different and new faces. I just realized when I looked at the pictures that she hasn’t really smiled on any of it. But I knew she really enjoyed all the colorful balloons and had loved playing with other little kids.
Surely, will be counting and cherishing the days and months ’till her next birthday! 🙂
We love you baby Gillian! ♥ ❤ ♥
