First Birthday Celebration

Our little girl celebrated her first birthday bash at home last November 19,2011. The day started with a numerous birthday greetings from Bella's loving family in Maasin, Iloilo especially from Ate Yelly who managed to compose a birthday SMS for Bella at the age of 7. Everything was all good although Bella was a little sick that day. 

It took me a while to make a post about her birthday party because I was waiting to get the photos from Tito Mike who acts as Bella's official birthday  photographer  but since most of Bella's blogging Titas were very excited as I am and so I was finally "convinced" to make a blog post about it using the photos I got from my cam. Hehehe...

Anyway, I would like to thank Bella's blogging Titas (KM, Krizza, Lainy, Algene)  for being such a big  part of  Bella's  first birthday preparation. I could not thank you enough for the love, support and inspiration you have given Bella and the rest of the family. Through your generous hearts, you all inspired me to go on with the party celebration for our little darling.

Below are some photos during Bella's first  birthday party.

It was a great joy seeing my little girl celebrated her first birthday with so much love from family and friends. She was actually having high fever that day to the point of experiencing  seizure at the time of her party but we are very thankful that Bella overcame it. We brought her to the doctor and we were told that there was nothing to worry about. Her seizure was caused by her fever due to teething and viral infection. She was given prescriptions and vitamins for faster recovery.

I would like to thank  everyone for the love and prayers you showed to Bella. This blog post would not be complete if I wouldn't say my thank you piece. So here it is...A million thanks goes to...

Tita Lainy  for the Birthday Cupcakes
Tita KM for the Dress and Shoes
Tita Krizza  for the Pink Balloons
Tita Raine  for the Invites 
Tito Mike  for the Photos

Special thanks  to Tachu Bren who patiently and lovingly  prepared  all the loot bags and the tags  on Bella's birthday giveaways. Another unending appreciation to Tita July and Ninang Exper for everything in every little thing and for always being there every step of the way. I love you guys!

The day ended with so much fun as a lot of kids enjoyed the games and prizes prepared for them. Even Kuya Macky had a great time too. Another milestone have been accomplished in Bella's life and  we owed everything to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ for making everything possible. Thank you Lord for the the life of Bella and also for the loving family and friends who made our life's journey wonderful. May you bless all of them with the life they all deserve and may the goodness they shared will be returned to them with so much more.

Happy first birthday Ysabella! I pray that you grow up to be a person God wants you to be. Your life have been a blessing to us and I could not imagine life without you. Thank you for coming into our lives and for making me and Tachu the happiest parents on earth. I just wished  good health for you now and for always. I love you, anak!
