Daphne Turns 1

My lovely niece, Daphne, turns 1 today. I love her to bits and she brings so much joy to our lives. I am so lucky because she lives next door and I get to see her almost everyday (and get a glimpse of her when I am running late). She's the sweetest baby I have ever met. She's so charming and friendly, she smiles at everyone! She does not know how to cry (and when it does, it's either just pretend crying or the seldom real cry).

Daphne was just 1 day old here.

Sometimes I feel sad because time flies by so fast. I used to be able to hold her for a long time when she was smaller. Now I can't even carry her for a whole 10 minutes. I really got to strengthen my arms and muscles! LOL. I remember watching her sleep when she was just a few months old. Gosh, I could do that all day. Whenever I see her, all my sadness just goes away. She's growing up so fast. She's learning to speak and walk on her own. Soon, she will be going to school and I will cry. No, I'm kidding. She's just 1. I'm so proud of Daphne and I love love love her. :)

She's now 1 year old!

We had a birthday party for her yesterday. She LOVES Mickey Mouse, so we had Mickey and Friends as the party theme. Too bad we couldn't take home the big Mickey Mouse standee. Daphne would have loved to have that in her room!
