Baby Andi – 1 year later

Dear Andi,

Almost a year now since you came into our world and I must say, you surely didn’t passed ‘unnoticed’. Loving you is challenging sometimes and it made me appreciate my sister and motherhood even more. Where there was peaceful sleeping now there’s crying, where there was silence, enjoying tea and telling stories, now there’s your¬†little voice and where there was waking up late in the morning, now there’s intense activity at 6 am. And as you will come to know me later on, this doesn’t come easy at all, especially giving the fact that my sister’s place was my peace and quiet ‘sanctuary’ till you showed up.

I even get sad when you don’t want to stay in my arms and you cry for mommy all the time and I’m also learning to understand why you constantly feel the need to scream when I’m taking the cables out of your mouth. You’re new to me. Everything you do is new to me.

But you know what’s the wonder of it all? The wonder is that you, you my little bundle of joy, continue to be one of the best gifts God gave me. I laugh at your funny faces and I marvel at the way you try to discover the world around – with your hands, your eyes and your mouth too. Every little step you take is a mountain conquered and I’m happier for you than I am for any of my achievements. I never thought playing football, making balloons and pushing cars all over the floor will ¬†bring me joy but seeing you laugh, makes it all worthy.

With ever growing love,

Auntie.
