While she may have been camera-shy on her big day, Ryan's first two years have been nothing short of adorable, as evidenced by a sweet slideshow that Ayesha, 28, posted on her Instagram page.
“Happy 2nd birthday my beautiful baby girl Ryan,” she wrote. “I love you so much. Your vibrant, content and hilarious personality is contagious. I just want to cuddle you forever and ever. My chookas. ??? I can't take how quickly the past two years have gone by. Not enough time in a day.”
Earlier, she excitedly shared a snap of the little girl’s bedroom, which she had decorated with balloons for her big day.
“I can't believe that my baby girl will be two. TWO!!! ??,” Ayesha gushed. “When we wake in the morning I hope that she'll be surprised with the forest of balloons awaiting her around her bed. Most importantly I hope she continues to be her bright, beautiful self and that she continues to ‘believe’ just as the sign illuminated above her head says as she dreams and grows each night.”
The proud mom, who also shares a 4-year-old daughter, Riley, with the NBA star, went to share that one of her greatest hopes for Ryan is that she never stops believing.
“At some point in most people's lives I feel like we stop believing,” she wrote. “Whether it be in our hopes, dreams, wants, faith, endeavors. It is my hope as her mama that as she grows, she never stops believing and keeps God at her forefront. I hope to set an example for both my girls believing in God and myself first and knowing that we can do anything we put our minds to! Until tomorrow... super emotional mommy out! ? #alwaysbelieve.”
