First Birthday

The other day, the baby of our family turned one. Everyone says this, but I want to strongly repeat: They grow up so fast.

Yes, many of the nights are long, and some in the beginning are sleepless. There are the daily ups and downs with bringing up children. But each child is so precious! And in the blink of an eye, they go from tiny and helpless in our arms to bouncing about with their own distinct personality.

Happy first birthday!





Precious Little One

Cliche to say, but it seems like yesterday

You were a newborn baby boy,

Youngest, newest little joy.


Number five, we waited for you to arrive,

Grandparents, uncles, aunts and more

With a brand new treasure to adore.


Precious little one, our hearts you won

Nine months before you made your debut,

And how much more we’ve grown to love you!


You looked at me, two weeks old and smiley,

Always content in everyone’s arms;

You are a baby who brings on the charms.


You took your time, and that was just fine,

Why be in a rush to reach silly milestones

When content and happy in your own loving home?


Precious little One, our hearts you won!

It is hard to accept and hard to realize

One whole year has skipped on by!


Happy birthday, little boy, happy birthday, sweet joy!

I will cherish and love you every day,

For mommies all know, time too quickly flies away.
