To My Last Baby As You Turn 1,

Time has proved to be my nemesis when it comes to you. Knowing that you are my last baby, I had every intention of slowing down & enjoying each moment with you. But it didn’t work, time still flew by.

Earlier this year, I was planning Baby R’s cake smash photos. Throughout his first year of life, I’ve always felt that time flew by.

It has been a while since I did our last family update. I think the last time was back in 2019 and there were only 4 of us back then. Now, as you already know, we’re a family of 5!!! And our pandemic baby is currently 9 months as I am writing this.

But giving birth during the Coronavirus pandemic was even harder.

I know it sounds like a cliche, but believe me when I say that it truly feels like yesterday when we found out we are expecting our third baby. But now, here we are towards the end of my pregnancy. Realizing that I will be giving birth soon has been bittersweet. It has forced me to spend more time with the kids because I know my focus on them will be shifted once the baby is born.
