So many months later,twelve to be precise ,Sage officially turns ONE today. I am feeling all kinds of things as she turns one, am grateful for the far God has brought us,anxious to see who she will turn out to be more like as she grows,excited to see her personality and character becoming,somehow worried that i will miss the super cute milestones babies have especially in their very early months and a little nervous that am becoming an old parent considering i now have a five year old and a one year old ,hahahhaha.
It has been a really beautiful experience with Sage for the past one year,she has done really well with all her milestones except growing teeth ,hahhaha,my baby turns one year without a single tooth in her mouth and its just hilarious and cute.She loves people,has no stranger-danger,loves sponge bob and sings the cutest “bab bab bab spun ” ever, wants to copy and paste everything Sheyce does,loves to dance and make funny goofy faces,prefers her grandparents to me,plays sweet,calm and nice every time her dad is around,crawl runs and its hilarious to watch hahahha and she loves her food very much.
I pray that she grows up in God ,knowing Him and as one of His vessels, a respectful and respectable little human, well nurtured and with great values and morals, well cultured, super talented, Intelligent, well disciplined ,a girl with a big kind heart and full of humility and everything that God wants her to be. May God give us the wisdom,knowledge and guidance to raise these little humans into people that will add value into this world and propel great and positive change.
To celebrate her first birthday we had a simple birthday lunch with very close family and friends.I was going for a pineapple-y theme but the Nairobi stores i went to had nothing pineapple-y buuuut,it still turned out great.And here are some snippets of her first birthday.
Am so grateful for the little village that raises my kids with me especially my parents, Sages dad M, my siblings, my best friend Naph ,Sheyce for being the best big sister ever, our other close friends and family and more so for Gods never ending Grace.
HAPPY HAPPY HAPPY FIRST BIRTHDAY SAGE-Y …..We LOVE you so much and we look forward to celebrating many more with you. God Bless you little Smurf …
