Nova’s First Birthday: Valentine’s Birthday


Today is Nova’s first birthday…Valentine’s Day baby. I am still in cloud 9 and can’t believe she’s one already. Today is an emotional filled day for me. I am overjoyed that she’s part of our family. On the other hand, I feel like I am going through PTSD remembering the journey it took for her to get her. Going from experiencing a stillbirth to having her, I feel beyond blessed. She is our rainbow baby and truly the joy after the storm. On this day and always, I thank God for bring her into our family. She is our little fire cracker. She is energized and always cheerful.

Here are some fun fact about Nova as we celebrate her first birthday…

  • She enjoys walking up and down the house
  • Loves clapping her hands since she learnt that skill
  • 6 teeth so far (4 upper & two lower)
  • Climbs the stairs if you let her
  • She is a foodie. Her favorite founds are Okro and ogbono soup (Nigeria dish), yogurt melts, sweet potatoes and any apple sauce mix. She is definitely not a picky eater. She eats any and everything ?
