Gasp! 11 months!??

That's how long I have been a mom! On one hand it feels like I have been one forever! On the other, how could 11 months have flown by so quickly!? On one hand, my poor back is perpetually screaming 'Be kind to me!'. On the other, I still love staring at Baby O asleep in my arms (she probably weighs about 10kgs now??). And since it's time to plan for her 1st birthday - should we make it a big do, rent a private function room and invite everyone or should we just do it at home with a few balloons, family and 1 or 2 close friends since she won't appreciate it yet?

Honestly, I don't know how I survived taking care of Baby O all on our own since Day 1 the past 11 months (no confinement ladies, no maids, no parents/in-laws... yes, you read it right!) but I do know that given a chance, I would do it all over again as being Mama to Baby O has been one of the best-est thing in my life! Love you to bits, baby girl!!


  1. yeah - 2 ways to go about the 1st birthday - BIG BASH or just a simple one. i would say go for the big one if you can afford it. you won't regret it when you look back in the photo album. at least now you have the time and energy to plan for a big one. baby will definitely not appreciate it during the do but when she's older....

  2. Thanks for the suggestion. Was very tempted to do it big but ended up with just a small and memorable one because of circumstances. Well, at least there was a party for her. So hopefully she'll still appreciate it when she's older.. :-)
