Happy Birthday to our Valentine’s Day Baby!

UPDATE: How is she now? 😮

She’s not a baby anymore… growing up pretty fast, becoming her own person, very loving, very intense. Four years ago, we got the best Valentine’s Day gift: our daughter Marcela. Baie Dankie, South Africa for this wonderful Valentine’s!

With much love, happy birthday, darling! Feliz cumple, Feliz Aniversário!

  1. Feliz Aniversário linda, que Deus te guie e te coloque em baixo de suas asas te protegendo,e te crie para o bem.Muitas felicidades sempre…


  2. sooo cute …I just want to kiss her cheeks and dedicated these lines to her…
    “tum jiyo hazaron saal ki..saal ke din hon pachaas hazaar”
    actually these lines are from a Indian song which is dedicated to a cute little girl which means “you live a thousand years and every year will have fifty thousand days…” 🙂
    happy birthday cutie-pie 🙂


  3. Such a pretty little girl, what’s more can you ask for? If I were you, I would called her Valentina, hahaha!! Happy Birthday and Happy Valentine’s Day to you and yours.


    1. I know, I know…. We’d already picked up her name, and the due date had been set for Feb 23, so, we were waiting, when… she decided to come on a wintery Pretorian day (we were in Pretoria, South Africa, at the time) – and so we traded celebrating Valentine’s Day as a couple, for a full-family celebration! Thank you very much for your kind wishes! 😮


    1. Thank you very much! Definitely, the most unique Valentine’s Day gift… and this one is for life! Every year, we renew our loving vows adding another birthday celebration to this little precious one… Couldn’t be better than this! 😮
