I know, that you probably will correct me that ‘I’m not a baby, Amma’ , but for me, my darling, you will always, always be one.. You will probably be my baby even when you turn thirty 🙂
What a journey, this has been – the last three years.. You came into our lives and changed it forever.. From that little baby, who was placed in my arms, to the bouncy little girl of three, today..
As you learnt to feed, I learnt to feed you,
As you learnt to turn over, you taught me to me extra careful,
As you started to crawl, you taught me to keep the floor totally ‘Dettol clean’ 🙂
As you started to walk , I learnt to be there, to ensure that you don’t fall,
As you fell, I learnt to let you fall and learn from that fall – however difficult it was for me :(,
As you learnt to speak, I learnt to be extra careful of what I say in front of you :),
Every time you saw some thing ‘amazing’ in the most routine things – it made me see the world with different eyes,
Every time, I see how easy it is to make you happy, just reminded me of how small things can be so joy full!
As you grew more and more independent, taught me not to be clingy and let my little bird soar!
Baby, as you grew from that little baby, into a toddler and now into a little girl, I was growing too, with you.. I can hardly express what I feel today, when I see you prancing about all excited about your pink cake or your balloons, all I can say, is that you have made my life complete.. you have given your dad and me so much joy, that we will remember and cherish forever… All these years of waking up in the middle of the night, first for night feeds, then because of bed-wetting, and nowadays, just because you want Amma to give you a ‘cuggle'(cuddle) 🙂 – given a chance, I would do it all over again. Everything is worth it for one smile and a BIG HUG of yours 🙂
Happy Birthday, my little girl, my precious gift! I wish you all the happiness in the world!
