As usual, I cannot believe that a year has passed since one of my children was born. It has been an eventful, stressful and sometimes hectic year, but her birthday celebration was low key.
It was just a normal day, filled with school work, and a doctors appointment. More on that later.
I made her a dinner of chicken teriyaki, soy-ginger glazed baby bok choy and snow peas, and sticky rice. For dessert a dark chocolate cake with white chocolate mousse.
She started off dainty enough, with just a small taste here, and a little bit there.
She gave her fork a try.
Then all pretense was out the window, and she had a good time.
And one gift to open, which I didn't think she'd quite "get", but she did.
She had fun peaking into the package, and finally pulling out the contents, then "trying on" her new outfit.
