Sophia Zayn Turns 1!

 ...and just like that, our baby is already 1-year old! Huhuhuhu! Too fast, my love!

Thankfully (and maybe stubbornly lol), we got to celebrate her birthday last January 16 outside. Whoohoooo! We invited a few fam and friends to mark this milestone with us, and we are super grateful to each one who made her birthday special. 

Siyempre pati host, stylists, program team mga talented ninangs nalang din! Para hindi na dumagdag sa headcount because we can only squeeze in so many people with the social distancing rule. So tayu tayo nalang talaga to haha!

So here are photos of that special day!

We dedicated her to our Lord Jesus Christ with the help of Pastor Allan Magtoto (also one of our ninongs sa kasal), prayed over her, played games, and ate delicious food!

Since Sophia loves to dance, we had a Looby Loo dance challenge during the program -- and as you can see, our friends from Victory are super competitive and up for it! Fun crowd!

We had a Mulan-themed party because while Sophia will always be our princess, she is a far cry from the damsel-in-distress usually depicted in storybooks. She is our strong and brave girl who loves adventures which is why Mulan is perfect for her personality!


Coincidentally, or as destiny would have it -- Sophia and my sister, Hershey share the same birthday. Both of them are born on the 15th of January, so we surprised her also with a cake complete with a birthday song.

Lovely fam and friends who came out! Thanks so much!

Thanks to all your prayers, well-wishes, gifts to Sophia -- but more importantly, your presence! :) May 1 year old na kami!!! Anunaaaa! hahaha!
