It was another birthday celebration for my nephew (Ryan) again, 2 days before the whole family did one for him at home. In fact, today is his actual birth date and his mum is back to town in time to celebrate for him together with the rest of family. The whole birthday celebration was filled with warmth, laughter and happiness for the Teo family !! :-)
Honestly, every year - while I am so pleased and proud at how he’s growing, how he's learning, how he’s becoming a person i can be proud to have as an aunt -every year i have a small pang of somber melancholy as I realize how quickly the last year has gone. I realise that he is one step closer to putting this whole being-family state behind him and going out into the wide world.
Every year, i stumble into that moment when I look at how big he has gotten, how big he continues to get and how the years will carry on slipping by no matter how hard i try to grab onto them and hold them in my hands.
Happy birthday to my beloved nephew, Ryan Teo again!!
