Blessed is She

It has really been an amazing year,
And all the richer because you are here.
Your sweet little coos are now baby talk,
And your wobbly legs are learning to walk.
Your little mouth now holds a toothy grin,
And each time you smile, another heart you win.
So we're celebrating your special day.
This birthday is first of many more on the way!

Birthdays are special occasions. For many, they are a time of celebration, of joy and of togetherness, of being greeted with “Congratulations! You’re a year older!”. But when you’re turning one, birthdays are magical events.

Your day is spent in the arms of your mother as she introduces you to the delicious confections of icing. You are showered by praises you can’t understand and greeted with smiles of adoration. You are smothered in kisses from your doting father because he is overjoyed that his precious princess is growing up to be a lovely year old lady. And your older brother never leaves your side; a protective presence throughout your life.

Jyeh Yi celebrated the year she turned one in a magical and enchanted fairytale inspired by friendly  woodland creatures, surrounded by the likes of childhood delights: a petting zoo, bouncy castle and adorable treats with darling names to match the enchantment spun by the world her mother, Wui Yi, had created.

To the birthday girl: birthdays are a blessing that come only once a year so cherish every day and take joy in the little moments for William Barclay once said, “there are two greats days in a person’s life – the day we are born and the day we discover why.”
