A year has passed. Joseph is already one. Sometimes if feels like just yesterday when I felt like I was going to be pregnant forever. Other times, it really feels like it's been a long long time since I was lying in that cold freezing OT.
He's grown so much. 11.2kg is a lot of weight to carry around when he wants to be rocked to sleep. And gosh....he's got so much energy. He's moving every waking moment. There's not a minute when he sits still. Everything round is "ball". He points to the moon, balloons, apple, orange, watermelon etc and says "ball". Actually, his own head is pretty round too. He's bulat. I'm bo-lat!
We had a party to celebrate his birthday. It was on Easter Day. What a celebration of life! Family and friends made the event memorable. There was so much food... pizza, roast chicken, chee cheong fun, curry chicken, beef rendang, char siew, lor mai fun, coleslaw, siew mai, curry puff and of course Joseph's birthday cake which was a deliciously moist chocolate cake in the shape of the number 1. Joseph took a swipe at the cake when we sang his Happy Birthday song and then contentedly sucked the chocolate fudge coating off his finger, smearing chocolate fudge on his entire face in the process. Boy, did he enjoy his cake!
After the singing and the feasting, Reuben gave a short magic show with the Easter message. The party ended quite early enabling Joseph to go to bed not too late. He was so extremely exhausted that it really didn't take us long to put him to bed. All the excitement must have worn him out. Happy 1st Birthday Joseph. We look forward to celebrating many more of your birthdays!
