She came out of me weighing 3.5 kilos, now I’m lucky to be able to hold her for long even using both hands.
She used to look exactly like her dad—from the small eyes to her thin hair, now all most people see in her are her my features—from her long eyelashes to her killer smile.
She used to just fit snuggly on my legs where she spent most of the time sitting and playing, now she’s already half as long as me.
She used to love me rocking her to sleep and she would always end up snoozing on my chest for hours on end, now all she needs is the bed and her favorite pillow and she’s all set.
She used to spend all night, even at 3 in the morning, just rolling around because that was all she could do, now she’s either on all fours or on her two feet all day.
She used to be one grumpy baby and it was impossible to make her smile, now not a day goes by when we don’t hear her infectious laugh.
She had gone through a lot of changes in past year, and there’s stopping her from going through some more. But there’s one thing that’s never going change—she will always be mommy’s baby.
Happy first birthday, my baby long legs, my Celestine! ❤️
(Don’t grow up too fast!)
