Our little penguin's 1st birthday...

And so the day finally arrived...

Our little bundle turned 1 year old on the 23rd of April 2015.

A day best described as happy, emotional & blessed.

I am always completely thankful for all the little moments and heaps of blessings we have been able to experience  with our own little person

It's no small fete to reach this milestone, but all together I became more relaxed as a new mommy.

To me this day also signified a "coming of age" phase or somewhat of a butterfly experience - I was settling into my own skin again.

But I now have an added layer: Mommy

I would never have been able to do this on my own, but with the love and support of my husband, family & friends...this little guy might just turn out okay!

The past year just flew by!
He is growing up & I am also growing emotionally...

Raising a kid is a never ending roller coaster of emotions for the both of you - it's also the single most fulfilling experience you will ever have!

I love every moment of being this little penguin's momma and had a blast organising his #Little_Indian #Pow_Wow party!
