As per what’s becoming a tradition now, as her next birthday comes up I’m sharing her previous one (cannot believe she’s turning 10 in a few weeks). Sharing a photo story of her 9th birthday today ending in a birthday surprise that I was most excited about, her first pet (will share a post about guinea pigs as I’ve gotten q’s on that another time isA).
I think I do these birthday posts for myself more than anyone else. Love going back to these birthdays from over the years, watching her grow and seeing a glimpse of myself and what my heart felt like in the moment.. it feels like a gift from the past. Just wanted to share:)
ANYWAYS… LETS DO THIS..
And that’s it, there were also videocalls, a gift delivery right on the day of and other fun things and alhamdullilah for a good day. Couldn’t believe I was mom to a 9yo and now it’s going to be a 10 year old inshallah. This time is flying like it’s hard to believe. We had no idea but just a few weeks later the world was going to change like crazy #covid19
Leaving you with a throwback of my own 9th birthday, Nadiya was 6.5 here and 2 months after this Waliya joined our gang. Doesn’t my mama look so beautiful? and look who sweet Papa and Nani Nana look. That doll house remained one of my favorite toys for years, wish I’d saved it for Anya.
ALSO: tips for making a birthday at home special in this one.
Have any of you been around since her 1st birthday? I get these messages sometimes about how it feels crazy how much she’s grown to you too. So heartwarming and so I’m curious.
Lots of love, Nataliya
