Can you believe that it's been almost a year since Khumo Mabalane, son to Gail and Kabelo Mabalane was born? How time flies.

Now at 1 years old, Khumo is a budding happy toddler who is his parent's pride and Joy.

Gail and Kabelo recently hosted Khumo's first birthday party and the little man had an absolute blast enjoy his first birthday with his big sister and other kids who came to celebrate with him.

In most cases, mom's usually gift their kids with a lot of presents, but this time around Gail Mabalane decided to write a letter baby Khumo as his first birthday present.

Here's what mama Gail had to say about her little boy:

“Feels like only yesterday that we welcomed you, our second baby into the world. We showered you with love, kisses and wrapped you in your first tiny little Huggies nappy. I remember waking up that Wednesday morning and thinking…today is the day I get to meet you…and it was. You were born at 14:00…2hours after my arrival at the hospital. We connected in an instant…it is amazing how time flies, the past year literally flew by as I adjusted to being a new mom…again…and I continue to try and balance it all. It’s been a wild and exhilarating ride."

Gail also added that the birth of Khumo has taught her so many things about herself and how thankful she is to him for the brand-new flavour little  added to their little family.

She also went on to mention how proud Khumo made her when he was attempting to take his first baby steps.
 
"You started walking at 11months, and not once did I see you discouraged by your continuous failed attempts to take steps and keep up with your big sister. Each time you fell on your bottom (thank goodness cushioned in Huggies), you calmly and patiently got back up again, knowing that you’ll get there…eventually…no rush at all. I strive to take in every moment with you and your sister and am forever grateful for the blessing of being called “mom”. Happy first birthday Khumo…I look forward to many more huggable moments.”

How cute?

We can't wait for Khumo to be able to read this adorable letter from his gorgeous mommy.
