Happy 8th Birthday, Ale! (but please stay cuddly & kissy for me)

Dear Ale,

Today you turn 8. EIGHT years old. How is it even possible?

They always said that time would fly by. They were right.

But I still cannot believe how fast the past eight years flew by and as I write this, all of the memories of you being just a tiny baby flash before my eyes... moments that I wish to recover but can’t.

And as you get older, you are developing your independent, very strong character. And even though I admit you drive me crazy sometimes, I would not have it any other way. I could not be more proud of the young woman that you are becoming.

So on your 8th birthday, here are 8 things I love about you.

You have a big heart. You are so full of kindness and generosity that it is a joy to see. It makes me so proud that you are an amazing big 'sister' to your cousins. Sharing toys with them and going along with their wishes are your natural inclinations... even dancing silly in front of them just to make their day.

You are so thoughtful. You like to do things for others that know will make them happy: draw pictures, sing songs, make presents. Even allowing me to 'disturb' you. LOL.

You are a great friend. You have the ability to make others feel love and accepted. You step in when your friends are bickering and try to mediate.

You are a bookworm. Sure, you are a big YouTube addict too, and would watch the videos if we let you, but you also love reading so very much. I have lost track of the number of times seeing you engrossed in a book. Perhaps being close to your er-ge, Ayd, has influenced you.

Which brings me to my next point.

You are an amazing little sister to your two brothers. You love them to bits, look up to them and even help them to complete stuff around the house!

You are tough and soft rolled into one. You never hesitate roughing it outdoors but yet scream at the sight of a cockroach. It's just too cute that you are all things tough and all things soft and lovely all at the same time. 

You are strong-willed. How is it this is something I love? Because oh geez, you are stubborn, my word, you are stubborn and yes, it drives me nuts. But yet, I hope that you always use this for good and use it to always stand up for what is right and good.

You will always be my baby. You might be 8 years old now, and turn 9 next year but in my heart, in my mind, in my memories you will always be my baby. Stay as cuddly and kissy as you are now, never grow out of my hugs and kisses as I will never want to stop giving them to you.

I am so blessed and proud to call you my daughter.

Now go tell the world you are EIGHT and let's celebrate!

Loads of love,
