Happy Birthday, Princess!

April 15, 2008 at 9:03 am | Posted in Uncategorized | 3 Comments

Four years ago today, I became a mother. Our Little princess was born 4:54am at St. Luke’s medical center. And we gave her the name Frances Sofia. Frances is latin for the word free and Sofia means wisdom. I chose the spelling Sofia versus Sophia. Since Sophia was common already and you pronounce it with an f sound anyway πŸ˜‰ I didn’t like Sophie/Sofi for a nickname coz some pronounce it as “soapy”. lol! so we just settled for iya.

She was the 1st grandchild on both sides so everyone was excited! It wasn’t until a week later that we got to bring her home but it was worth the wait. I went to the nursery everyday after I got discharged to breast feed her.

After that, time really did fly! She’s quite tall for her age especially when she was younger. When we 1st arrived here nobody believed when I told them that my daughter was only 2 1/2 yrs old. A lot of people asked since she stood out, being asian and cute at that! hehehe…

And today she is four! It’s funny coz she’s more excited about turning 5! When we told her she’s turning 4 already she said “and then next time i will turn 5, and I can skate!!” Hubby and I laughed ‘coz she remembered that she can only skate when she’s 5. We brought her before to SM MOA and she got so mesmerized watching kids skate. She told us she wanted to skate! But when we inquired we were told that they only allow kids 5 and up. And so we told her she has to wait until she’s 5.

Our only wish is for her to grow up healthy and happy. She has brought tremendous joy to our family and to people around her. And i’m hoping she’ll be a good Ate πŸ™‚
