Captain Arnold Turns ONE
It felt like yesterday that I was at the labour room PUSHING…
And then, POP, he arrived and our life had never been the same.
It only gets better…
Our little bundle of joy – Arnold Ong.
We were only beginning to bond and know each other, and suddenly he turned one month old.
And then, five months old. This lucky boy got to travel to Adelaide when he was only five months old. And boy, he enjoyed the weather, the company, and car rides (thankfully).
I’m sooooooooo thankful that my gems loves each other sooooooooo much!
Guess my worries were for naught.
We spent Christmas unwrapping presents together…
We played dress up (thanks Kirby and Kimchi for the pretty Korean costumes).
Arnold learned to stand and walk (assisted by clinging onto chair, table, etc).
And he attempted to
eat read books.
We did so many things together, I think I could write a book!
And now, Captain Arnold Turns ONE. So fast, right? I know!
My dear son, slow down. I just want my baby to be my baby for much longer.
Of course, I can go on and on about how I don’t want him to grow up so quickly but nevertheless, he will grow up (whether I like it a not). That’s why I cherish every single moment I have with my children. They only grow up once and I don’t want to miss any of their milestones. They need me as much as I need them. Our heart beat as one. Yeah!
And so, he grew and now he’s ONE.
Happy birthday, my gem!
