28th June a year ago was when we brought the cub home from the hospital.
'Hello baby, we're home' was how we've ushered the cub, still nameless then, into the house.
A year later he is capable of navigating his way around the house if I let him. He whisks his toys across the expensive parquet, creates a new mess everyday and makes himself very comfortable at home.
Sometimes the wild thing gets tired of indoor fun and starts leaning by the window to watch what's going on outside. It's just embarrassing! Especially when he is shabbily dressed, now what do you expect, we're home! Now the passersby may be speculating that I've neglected my boy so much that he resorts to attention at the window.
Look at him, how can you ignore this cutie pie slapping on the window?
It's crazy but we can't imagine how home will be home without him!
So we make our perfect home the perfect place to celebrate the cub's first birthday ;)
I would have baked him his first cake if not for the nagging pain at you know where. Anyway, I ordered one, customized it to resemble my boy's smile which tickled the pastry chefs much I heard.
A miracle happened on the day, his left eyelid reappeared though it retired after a few hours again. It was brief but it really made his folks very happy.
It may have been a quiet celebration, just 3 of us, nonetheless joyous, blessed. We've received gifts from family and friends, everyone who so love the baby...
But no love beats one of the loving dad, who prepared a glam toy ride flown all the way from Germany. The birthday boy had his first BMW racer.
Uninformed beforehand, I was very moved when it was delivered to our place. Bear's quiet thoughtfulness was one of the best thing I love about him. We're blessed to have this sweet man at home.
The racer is truly heavy for a toy and takes a while before the cub is capable of handling it. For now, we like the horn that makes a old fashioned squeak like an antique toy.
He really should have been more grateful and behave instead of having a little accident that day. The cub peed on the floor for the first time. :P
