Etame's 1st Birthday was on the 1st of March! It seems like this year went by so quick. I suppose it's because it wasn't a full year. :-( I didn't miss the sleepless nights of newborn baby, yet I can't help but feel like we missed out on the first 5 months of her life. It never affected me as much as when I realized why the year went by so fast. She is so snuggly now, I can't imagine her as an newborn, so soft and cuddly.
So we are happily celebrating her first birthday. I thought of her birth mother on this day and wished we could somehow tell her how well Etame is doing and that we are thankful for this beautiful gift she has given us.
She had a great time with the wrapping paper and being able to try out new expressions in front of everyone.
