We had an early birthday celebration with extended family members more than a week before her actual birthday. So on the weekend of her birthday, we had another one just for the 3 of us. A simple dinner at TGIF, The Curve since we thought she might like the sing-birthday-song routine by the waiters there.
Birthday singing session by the waiters. She wasn't too impressed!
See how gently she "sayang" the little doll ? (mummy decided on the name "Annabelle")
But after dinner, the "torture routine" for poor Annabelle started
And continued. Poor Annabelle!
To our dearest Elyssa,
You have brought so much joy and love to mummy and daddy. You make us laugh with your funny words and antics. You make us smile when we feel down. You make the world stop when you look right at us and smile your beautiful dimpled smile.
And yes..... you also make our back and hands ache from carrying you. You make our ear drums hurt with your powerful screams. You test our patience with your stubbornness.
But we love you more that you can ever imagine. You have definitely changed our lives for the better and we won't trade it for the world. Our darling princess...... we love you so much.
Mummy & Daddy
