FOURTEEN

video


We had fun taking this video.  But I turned off the back light because I wanted Jonathan to see the candles.
He was pleasantly surprise when I brought the cake out.  Notice that he also tried to blow the candle light out.


Jonathan is 14. Officially older by another year but still a baby to us.  Although lacking in some areas but he's still perfect in every way.

14 years is a long time.  It brings me back to day one.  When everything was all set but became a setback.

But this setback has been set straight.  It's a totally different journey now and everyday is a different life experience.  And we are improving as we go along.

What has Jonathan accomplished?

1)  Able to spit water from his mouth.
2)  Knows how to get rid of hiccups by covering his mouth and nose.
3)  Able to pronounce some words at the spur when you encourage him to.
4)  Pull his t-shirt down whenever it moves up from his tummy (see HERE).
5)  Helps me to pick up a t-shirt / towel near him (see HERE)

We brought him to Tampines 1 to choose his cake but he didn't want to buy any.  We asked him what present he wanted, he said "No Need".  But we bought the cake anyway.  We wanted to.

He celebrated his birthday with his mama (Harith's mum) on 5th Feb.  That's her actual birthday.  He almost didn't want to go for the birthday dinner but in the end, reluctantly agreed.  We were at Yummy Thai Restaurant (at 285 Changi Road) and the food was nice.  Thank-you to his aunties, uncles and cousins for his gifts.

But today, being his actual birthday, we did our own private celebration.  Here are some pictures of us with Jonathan we took this evening :)

The cake called Secret Garden was bought from The Icing Room at Tampines 1.  It's rather delicious cake.  Sponge cake with cream and red beans in between.






Excuse my hair that's all messed up heh heh (below).  Harith holding Jonathan's hand to cut the cake.







Thanks for dropping by :)

I am touched when I read some of your entry. You are indeed a very good mum, "nothing in this world can beat mother's love, mother's love towards their child know no boundaries"
