Motherhood you have wrecked me so beautifully well. What I’d give to turn back the hands of last few years and redo it all over again. Not because we did something wrong but we did everything so right.
Read something similar somewhere and it couldnt be more fit today as I write this.
Bringing a baby into the world is a big deal. We too jumped in the bandwagon and did it anyway. The first year was hard but we survived. Just when we though we got a hang of it, we did it again. We decided to bring a second baby into our lives. Very unsure of our decision we were still waiting patiently for our second baby girl. Then came little Mila into the world on Feb 15th 2015. What a day that was!
I cried my eyeballs out when I saw her first, probably cried more than when I did with my first born. I do not know why I did though. Maybe it was the mom guilt on me that I now have to share my love between these two girls or maybe it was just her sweet little face that dug deep into my chest the minute I held her. But I cried! We were nervous about introducing Mila to Asha (her big sister, her soon to be best friend). We just did not know what to expect. But from the minute Asha laid her eyes on Mila, Mila became hers. She became her pride and joy, her ultimate possession that she wanted to share with the world. The union couldn’t be any more perfect.
My little Mila is graced with so much beauty and sweetness that even a stranger will walk upon to say hi to her. Batting of her big bold eye lashes are sure to win and break a million hearts. This sweet girl of mine is the most content baby in the world. She is her big sister’s shadow! She is her confidant! She is her life long best friend! Little M is sweeter than honey but is so courageous. Bless her little heart, she is never scared to take risks. Some days we feel like we did not do justice to her by not doing things we did for her sister like hovering over her 24/7 and others. But you know what, that is what made her what she is today at a tender age of two. She is confident and she is very friendly and she is just mellow. Her personality is so charming that we cannot even get mad at her antics for more than a mere second. She is amazing in every single way!
So for my wish to you today baby girl, may you achieve every single goal you will ever have in your heart. May you get the most perfect sunrise and sunsets every single day of your life. May you always remain the best baby sister in the world. May you always have that special someone to look up to whether it is us or your big sister. May you never have to feel alone. My little Mila Lena, may you get the very best the world has to offer. Even when your daddy and I are not around, may you still lean in on your sister for support.
I am SO grateful to call this girl mine. It makes me a little sad every time I think how fast she is growing up. But I am looking forward to seeing her personality come out more and looking forward to loving her more.
I may not be the best mom in the world but you my darling you sure are the one of our best creations. You are our pride and joy and we lucked out having you as our daughter. My wish for you today is that may you have the best birthdays year after year. I love you Mila!
