We’ve done it! The big o-n-e. We had a full day planned for you guys, cake smash in the morning and dinner at night. Tobias attacked the cake and stuffed his face but Liam you were so reserved. I don’t think you liked the mess.
Honestly, just look at how far we’ve come. from tiny screaming babies to plump little floofs that still scream occasionally. Liam more than Tobias, but man when Tobias screams, he is a siren. But there’s nothing funnier than him shouting or babbling at Liam when Liam is crying. Sometimes he looks so confused why Liam is making so much noise but other times he looks downright annoyed.
You both had the chicken mee sua I prepared with baby noodles. It’s the first proper meal I have ever cooked for you guys and you do seem to enjoy it! Even Liam, my haughty food critic who turns his nose up at everything.
It’s been a year of growth and learning. Funnily enough, loving you has taught me to value myself. I can’t wait to see what you make of yourselves, and even if you never become great successes, mom loves you for you. All I ask is that you do not harm, cheat, or steal. As long as you have kindness in your heart, I would have succeeded in being a mother and that’s all I could ever hope for.
My darlings, you are everything I’m grateful for. Without you, I would never have learnt how to love myself the way I do now. I love myself for being your mother and I love having you as my children. My world is brighter with the both of you in it, so if the world ever gets you down, just remember that you have made a world of difference to me.
