Happy Second Birthday Darling !
Your Daddy and Mommy are full of smiles today as its your b’day. I feel happy and can see the happiness in your daddy – He mentioned that we will visit church today on account of your Birthday.
It’s been two years already since you’ve come in to our lives – Ofcourse, there have been ups and downs and we have faced all as a cute family. Mom n Dad recalled the day you were born, Daddy was living at V uncles’s home 3500 miles away from mom, he was at office when I called and told him that we had to rush to the hospital as my waters had broken – ur dad sounded puzzled :)… I remember talking to your dad after you were born and when i was out of the OT ; I told daddy that I was fine – you are very cute and you were crying !
Dear M – Let me tell you something – From when I’m married to you Dad – I’ve always kept his picture in my wallet..always..He is most special to me and he is everything of my life..part and parcel..reflection and image that I cannot get over…(psst..your dad may call it show off..) On the same note – when you were born I just did’nt bother putting your picture in my wallet..I just did’nt feel like doing so…for I know that one day there will come a girl in your life and she will love you just like I love your dad..and she will (might) keep your picture in her wallet…I would have offered you this explanation – when you grow up and ask me as to why I’m having only dad’s picture in my wallet.
Now – I tell you Papu-ma ; that I just cannot resist the urge to keep ur picture in my wallet – as you have become so much a part n parcel of both our lives in the two years. Our life is revolving around you !
Today your picture gets into my wallet !
I must agree – that I’m the impatient parent with you. You dad does keep his cool most times, while I barge at you angrily all the time. I hold my heart in my hands – I cannot stand you falling or hurting yourself. I scream like a demon! Mother hood has changed me and Now – I must change myself for the better – at least before you grow up and tell me “ Amma – don’t shout and have some patience “
We’ve lived through challenging times from your 1st b’day to your 2nd. Your hospitalization and surgery came as a hard blow on our ever so normal lives. It made us realize what life was , the value of it ! It showed us the worth of a normal daily life ! We could’nt bear to see you go through the physical trauma – but we were with you with our priority being to help you back to normal and I should say we did it ! The doctors visit this Monday revealed that you don’t have to get back to the hospital again not for check up relating to the surgery.
It is a very nice feeling to hear you say new words – Key, Pigeon ,Cartoon…Oh..we love you Chelamma !
All said ! May you enjoy your 2nd to your 3rd B’day ! May it be filled with happy moments and joy !
A peek into your year ahead –
1. Your Mini – B’day party this Sunday !
2. India trip in December
3. Change in child care from January (TS to T) – I’m sure you are going to miss your Teacher R (who you call Teacher Bahbah)
4. More of Car travel – (Your Dad’s got his first car , this month )
Happy B’day Darling !
Love – Amma
