McCoy de Leon and Elisse Joson threw a simple celebration for their daughter Felize’s first birthday.
In an Instagram post, McCoy said that while they have plans to go on a vacation in the near future as part of Felize’s birthday celebration, he decided to buy a chocolate cake on the day of her birthday.
“Alam ko mayron tayong selebrasyon at bakasyon sa malayong lugar para mapasaya ka namin anak. Pero gusto ko lang rin malaman mo na ngayon eksaktong oras ng kaarawan mo. Naghanda ako ng munting salo salo para mapasaya ka namin sa simpleng paraan, walang ayos, walang kahit ano,” he wrote in the caption.
McCoy went on to share how happy he and his partner are each time he sees his daughter smile, adding that he feels like they are the ones having a birthday celebration each time she does.
“Basta ngayon anak kumpleto tayo kasama ka namin ng mommy mo, maniwala ka man sa hindi masayang masaya na ako, sobra na kung makita ka naming nakangiti (na dalawa pa ring maliliit na ipin ’),” he said.
“Salamat sa mga ngiti mo tuwing naipapakita mong masaya ka sa amin, parang kami ang laging ang may kaarawan,” he added.
While McCoy said he doesn’t know how he will be able to give back the same amount of happiness to his daughter, he promised to give her unconditional love until the end.
“Hindi ko alam kung paano ko matutumbasan yun anak. Ang tanging regalo ko sa ngayon anak ay pagmamahal na panghabangbuhay... pangako yan,” he said.
Meanwhile, McCoy hopes his daughter will read his message for her with a smile on her face in the future.
“Sana pag tanda mo mabasa mo to at nakangiti ka. Ito ang patunay na sa unang taon mo dito sa mundo, lahat lahat gagawin ko para mapasaya ka lang anak,” he said.
Admitting he can’t believe time flies so fast, he ended his post by saying: “Mahal na mahal kita anak ko at ng mommy ... sobra Happy FIRST(hay ang bilis ng panahon ) Birthday Felize!”
Felize’s godmother, Maymay Entrata, also shared a post where she said she will make her laugh the same way she did in the photo, jokingly saying her parents can’t do it.
“Happy Birthday my inaanak Feliz! Babawi si ninang pag uwi, patatawanin kita ng ganyan ulit di kasi magawa ng magulang mo Love you my inaanak.”
