If I would sum up 2013 for our family, it will be one word or specifically, one name: Rui or #ruitotski as we fondly call her. Truly, this year has been a memorable roller-coaster ride for all of us because of her. From the downs of a somewhat difficult pregnancy and personal life adjustments during her first few weeks or even months, to the highs of seeing her early milestones of smiling, pagiging madaldal, turning on her tummy and yes, even crying, everything was worth it and I would not want to change any of it.
So, from my family to yours, Happy New Year! Hope you guys have a good one! And like I said in my Facebook post, thank you for all the good and bad memories. Everything that happened this year has hopefully made me a better person in the coming years (well ideally it should). I’m quite excited about what 2014 will bring, especially as we will be spending it with our dear little Rui.
