Birthday Trip Part 1: My birthday

26th May 2022

Dear Chibi,

Last weekend we went down south to Wollongong for 3 days to celebrate my birthday :) I like to think of it as a joint birthday getaway, but Hubby insists to make it all about me. Feeling a lot of love from my boys. Thank you to everyone who wished me a ‘Happy Birthday’ too :)

We started the day with a delicious breakfast at our local cafe. P-chan enjoyed his babyccino very much ^.^

P-chan turns 3~ A Thomas the Tank Engine Birthday Party

9th May 2022

Dear Chibi,

Happiest 3rd birthday to our sweet little P-chan! I can’t believe how quickly he’s growing up..Can he just stay this cute forever? :3 It felt like yesterday when I was planning his second Hungry Caterpillar themed party. For the past couple of months he’s been very much loving the blue tank engine (well, and green…and brown among others LOL), so I knew this had to be his party theme this year. I felt like I spent 1000 hours designing and putting everything together, but it was so worth it in the end seeing him so happy ^.^

My Birthday Weekend Farm Stay

24th May 2021

Dear Chibi,

Another year younger…who’s keeping count? ;) My birthday landed on a Friday this year, but Hubby made sure I still had my favourite type of breakfast~ Waffles with oreo icecream served with hot hojicha..yummmm…what a way to start the day! ^.^ <333

*drools*

My dinner request was a no-brainer~ SUKIYAKI :DDD The cold has made it particularly awesome this year.

P-chan was so excited for it!! His favourite was the beef and tofu.
OH GOSH SO TASTY. Totally had food coma after this. Could not stop eating!!
But wait~ there’s more!! *_*

Hubby surprised me with this gorgeous Banana Caramel Cake from Patisserie New York. So delicious and pretty!! *_* The macaron..oh my.

Wow.

P-chan turns 2~ A Very Hungry Caterpillar Birthday Party

26th April 2021

Dear Chibi,

Happy 2nd birthday to our Hungry Little Caterpillar :3 He’s growing up to be a very kind, gentle boy and I hope he knows how much Mummy and Daddy loves him <3

P-chan has always enjoyed Eric Carle’s illustrations and is particularly fond of the Very Hungry Caterpillar. Maybe it’s because it loves to eat, but most likely because it’s green – his favourite colour. I chose this book as his party’s theme to reflect this innocent time of his life…toddlerhood :)

Dear Chibi,

Today we celebrated our dear little Mikayla’s 2nd birthday! Mich & Troy threw her a very adorable farm-themed party with the birthday girl wearing a mini farmers outfit. The crew mostly came in matching flannels and P-chan of course had to come as a piggy :3 Everything was so cute and well thought out. Thank you Mich & Troy for organising such a fun party and having us be part of this day!

Dear Chibi,

Happy Birthday to our most precious Little Babian <3 Our first year of parenthood has truly been the best experience of my life. I can’t believe it’s over already…my little baby is now a toddler.

A wild one~ Mikayla turns One

25th March 2020

Dear Chibi,

A few days ago I spent an afternoon working on a card for Mikayla’s 1st birthday (it’s today!) Mich had originally planned a safari/wild theme party for her but it didn’t go ahead due to the current COVID-19 situation. I decided to draw Mikayla having a great time with her adorable animal-themed cake :) I hope she still has an amazing birthday with her family.

To everyone else, please stay safe and fingers crossed this whole nightmare will fade away soon.
