Suddenly She’s Two!

OK, I guess I cannot be in denial anymore. Frappy, my baby, remember? That tubby little wee thing that got everybody went all mushy with her expressionless face and sweet, silly smiles? Well, she’s not that little wee thing anymore! /wails!

She’s a girl now, a big girl who knows how to work her heels (ok not for real, but she loves to put on heels, correctly at that! Where lah did she get that from?! /shifty eyes); she wants to explore places (on her own) and is not shy to make new friends (it’s simple really, just open your mouth and say HAI!!! And then smile. There, you just got yourself a new friend. Simple but profound wisdom); she eats big people’s food; she answers back (!!!); she says xie xie (thank you) when given food or helped without being prompted; she puts away her toys (!!!! sometimes only haha); she is imitating speech, a lot. You should really see her when she’s watching her walt disney’s animations; she’d get very engrossed and babble along with the characters as if she wrote the script. Just yesterday, mickey from the mickey mouse clubhouse asked his audience to say “oh toodles!”, frappy did just that. She said Oh tootoos! 

She is doing so many things these days - some new, some old but more refined and sophisticated, it’s scaring me sometimes! I mean, like, noooo stop! Stop growing so soon! Just stay and be that little wee thing who weighed a ton with all the oh-so-squishable fleshy chunks like that Michelin man for awhile, won’t you? Lookit you! You are all slimming down (except for the tummy haha!) and elongating! You’re wearing dresses and look properly like a lady already, except shorter. Much shorter.

But no, time says no. She has to grow, keep growing and moving with every tick of the hands on the clock. Oh how that pains my heart my dear frappy! But it’s a joy to be able to grow with you, I’ll have you know that missy! You are such a joy to be around with (but I’ll also have you know that you’re such a pain when you’re stubborn and so loud it’s embarrassing -__-). You know, when she knows I’m feeling under the weather, she’d come over and hold my arm, and when she hugs me, she’d give my back a gentle rub and my shoulders a baby squeeze! Such a grown up my goodness! Just stop! You’re giving me heartache just thinking about it! 

Haiks. All I wanted to do was to pen down a few happenings from yesterday, the 7th of May 2012 – Frappy’s 2nd birthday; and of course I had to be random and go all over the place! Hehe. Ok then, I’ll leave you with some memories that no money can buy – my family came visiting (my parents just got off work and had a flight to catch this morning!), my brother sponsored the most delicious berries pavlova, and a group of our friends came celebrating the special day with us! It wasn’t a planned party, I was just going to symbolically give frappy a cake-cutting ceremony and call it a (birth)day, but Ju organized a whole bunch of dear friends over (on a weeknight! You guys make me cry!) and suddenly we have ourselves a party! And these people even brought gifts! I feel so loved whenever I have people coming by our house, and this is not even my party! Ugh. Why am I sucha mush! 

At one point my mom was asking me, rather suspiciously, "these… are frappy’s friends? So old?"

Nawww, mom! They are not old. They are gold! 

Ok, I should really stop, this is turning into an essay (that, and also I’m typing this whilst standing, with frappy clinging to my leg like a koala to a tree trunk, and oli grabbing my toe, like… like, oysters stuck to pier stilts. So very abruptly, and very cliché-ly, blessed birthday my sweet mocha frap! I hope you had an awesome time last night with your family and friends, donning new dress, sunglasses, fairy wings, eating that fancy branded pavlova with fingers, and simply being an all attention-grabbing star! I love you too much, baby! Just don’t be annoying ok? xox

Good morning! I'm two years old today!
