Life : He turned 13 and Yes, I am THAT kind of MOM! | Edmonton Lifestyle Photographer

I think by now, the whole world has already known about my first born hitting his teens. I've pretty much whined and broadcasted it everywhere. It's pretty much all that I could talk about all week. I mean, really, HOW CAN YOU NOT?! 

THEY GROW UP WAY TOO FAST... and I don't think anything can ever prepare me for this. 

I have a teenager in my hands. It felt just like yesterday that I held him in my arms for the first time. He was purple/blueish. I was scared. I was 16 and had nothing but random nurses checking up on me and a gameboy to distract me in the delivery room - it was that time of the SARS outbreak in Hong Kong and families weren't allowed in. 

But here we are now.... 13 years later. 

I am amazed at how he has grown up to be.

He asks a lot of questions.

He simply requested FAMILY TIME to celebrate his birthday.

When he was six - he wanted clothes and fruits as his birthday presents. (He totally got a fruit basket!) 

He's grown up to be a lot mature than he should be at his age. 

I trust him, I would say. 

I don't ever want him to change or be any different. 


He is my world. 

His hugs are the best. 

And like any mother, I just want him to stop growing - But I kinda have to let that go, don't I? 

I'm happy for him. I'm happy he's growing and learning... and finding his own perspective in life. 

And yes, I am THAT kind of MOM that begs her kids to please please... can we do your birthday photos???? I promise to make it super coooool!!!! :D 


I love you Ecko - to the moon and back. You sir, make me incredibly proud. 

xoxo, mom
