Dylan is ONE!

My baby boy, you turn one today! Seems like just yesterday you came into our lives. Time really flies with the second child, it's true!

You have achieved all your developmental milestones, most of them in advance. I break into a smile when I think of your beaming face when you took your first steps unassisted, how you give a fake wail when you know you can get your way by doing just that or how your mouth opens into an oval "O" when you sleep. It's all just too cute sometimes it makes me wanna give you a big squeeze :)

Your giggles and laughter that sometimes escalates into guffaws are the funniest and most infectious sounds ever! I don't think there's anybody who will not laugh along with you when they hear your guffaw :D I hope you will keep your cheer with a ready laugh anytime.

I must let you know that I totally enjoy this first year and may the rest of the years be just as enjoyable. You have a way about you that makes people love you, your brother is one of them. He is seldom jealous of you and you always break into a smile when you see him. You both are just the best gifts your father ever gave me :p

Happy 1st birthday Dylan, we all love you very much! May you stay cheerful and be happy always.

Mummy, Daddy & Kayden

Here are some photos we took today.

At Grandma's house for lunch, she spelt your name wrongly on the cake!

Is this for me?


Catch phrase for the day "oh oh!"

Hanging around while the adults try to get the candle lighted

Gor Gor singing Happy Birthday song for DiDi

Dyl is eyeing the cake

Gor Gor has been eyeing this piece from the start and attacked it the moment the candle was blown out!

I must have a bite of it too...

Ummm, it's yummy!

Savouring the sweetness

Can I have some more please?

At the studio for a few shots

Flying cupcake!

Oh oh, sorry mummy *twiddles fingers*

How about a cheeky smile?

Check out Gor Gor's face! :D

Ok now what?

Haha this one I cropped in close becoz the expressions on these two were hilarious! Kayden snatching the cake away from Dylan and Dyl wailing
