Ethan is TEN

My first born child is TEN today

We went back to the in-law’s last Sunday for a simple cake cutting ceremony. 

If there were only Ethan and Ayden the previous years, they now have a cousin brother to celebrate together.

My sister-in-law and husband welcomed their first baby boy in May. My parents-in-law now have 3 grandchildren – all boys! I know right, I got a headache just looking at them all. LoL! 

Happy Birthday Ethan. 

With the gifts from both my sister-in-laws. 

Turning TEN is very sentimental to me. Time really flies since the first day I held him. 

Here is Ethan from his FIRST birthday to now:


My cute little chubby baby at ONE. 





Ethan’s favourite KorKor baked him the White Chocolate Macadamia cake for his 5th birthday. 

This Angry Bird cake is from my sister-in-law. 

At 5 years old, he had THREE birthday cakes. 


His favourite KorKor baked him this gorgeous rainbow cake for his 6th birthday again. 

My sister-in-law got him this Superman cake. 


At seven, he now has Ayden to celebrate every birthdays together. 




My charming young man is ten today. Grow well my son and be the best brother Ayden can have. 

May you grow healthy and happy always. Mummy and Daddy love you.

    Happy birthday, Ethan! He looked like Ayden when he was a baby. For a while, I thought you had another one. Haiyar!!! Three is a nice number.

    This is very priceless and beautiful as not many families today have great bonding & happiness like this.

    Congratulations to you both for the very excellent parenting and Happy Birthday Ethan!
