Dear 2017- welcome!
And now let me apologize for not posting for the longest time. I was getting caught up with life. So many things have happened in the past few months that I need to write a few posts on those. Stay tuned for a few backlogged posts those are long overdue. Today however I decided to pick up my pen err open my blog to wish my first born a very happy fourth birthday! My little A who is not so little anymore turned four today. Where did the time go?
The whole reason I started this blog on the first place was to document my journey of motherhood. As soon as A was born I felt like I needed to pour my thoughts down somewhere so this blog was discovered. So in honor of her birthday I decided to revisit and post something for you all.
A is my first born. The witty one, the sweet one, the super sensitive one. She is stubborn and very determined but she is so sensible and nurturing that we are always in awe with her antics. This is the girl who stayed in my tummy for almost two extra weeks. This is the girl who did not want to leave my belly and had to be evicted (I say that with utmost love). This is the girl who taught me to put someone else’s needs and wants before putting my own. This is the girl who made me a MOTHER. I am forever grateful to be called “mama” by this little girl and her even little-er sister. My little A is four today. It is incredible to see how far we have come around. From not knowing how to hold a baby to being a mom of two and to have carried two babies back to back, gave birth back to back and breastfed my babies well over 18 months, I think I now have this motherhood thing pat down (if only). Joking aside this little girl has taught me so much in the past 4 years, I am humbled and proud at the same time to be her mother.
A is very determined and also super compromising. She teaches us a lot about perseverance and not to give up- ever! This girl loves her sister more than anything and calls herself M’s best friend forever (melts my heart). A taught me how to be patient (working on that still) and how to be a protective mama bear. Our life is so colorful because of our girls. A is truly an adventurer. This little girl started traveling when she was only 8 months old (first trip Cancun, Mexico). Since then she has about a dozen trips under her belt. She is the happiest when she sits in the plane and go explore new places and new faces. This girl loves to just be out and about. This girl even took on a trip to Dubai (14 hours flight each way) like a piece of cake. No complains, no fuss! Hats off to this explorer. We will try our best to fulfill your life with as much adventures as we can my dear daughter. You deserve nothing but the very best life has to offer. You, my child, are one in a million and we are smitten over you. We love you so much and we wish you a very happy fourth birthday! Love you always!
