That’s right; here in Switzerland, one can legally drink beer, wine and cider as of 16 years of age. Yesterday, my boy turned 16! OMG!
Of course, there was no big celebration because we are still slowly coming out of partial lockdown due to the Covid-19 virus. So i made Tobias’ favourite cupcakes and we ordered his favourite food, sushi, and celebrated at home.
Here’s a look back at 15 years of birthdays:

Looking back, it’s so lovely to see how he has grown; and as his mother, i remember all the ups and downs but i am, first and foremost, and most importantly, very proud of him! i can’t believe how the years have just flown by.
Here’s the photos from Tobias’ 16th Birthday:

Yesterday was Lexi’s first birthday and we held a little celebration a couple of days before we left for our holidays.
She is now 1 year old and has been with us for 10 months now. We enjoy having her around a lot! Such a little joy but sometimes, just sometimes, she can be stubborn and not obey instructions such as “come here”, “stop”, “heel” etc… just because she was distracted or wanted to chase something or was just being a teenage dog. Yep, she has hit doggy teen years – sigh!
You can look back on when she first joined our family and at 5 months old posts. You will see how she has changed in her looks and size.
Here are a few photos from her first birthday celebrations:
A few days ago, Tobias celebrated his 15th birthday! It was a quiet but fun-filled celebration; a Saturday afternoon movie and then home for some games with his two best friends.
The years have just disappeared before our eyes. Have a look at where we were 15 years ago as a family of three and today we are a family of four (our little dog, Lexi is the latest addition):
Becoming a parent, being a parent has not been the easiest thing i have done. And as corny as it sounds, parenting does have its beautiful, heart-warming moments. So i cherish those moments and am happy to say that i am privileged to be his mother and proud that he is my son.
PS: for those who don’t know, as a chubby baby, Tobias had many funny nicknames and one of them was “succulent” because he had such fat, juicy thighs. 😀
