Little Foot turned Three in what feels like a blink of an eye…As with each year, I take time to reminisce this motherhood journey, and find time to write my Little Foot a little note.
No one was kidding when they said the days are long but the years are short. It never fails to amaze me that it wasn’t so long ago that I had a little bundle in my arms, so tiny we were afraid we would break a bone of hers if we were not careful… and now? She’s more than half my height, and twice the personality I am. Everything has moved so fast, but I am thankful and grateful each day that she is growing well.
What a year it has been…
From Hello Kitty to Elsa
Remember how she loves Hello Kitty soooo much? Well, she’s kinda outgrown Hello Kitty, but still “alright” with the Sanrio character which I also love. And now she has moved on to being a big fan of Elsa, so we made her wish come true and got her the full works for her birthday party.
It was also a year of play and play, as we cut back on enrichment classes and allowed her (and ourselves) time to roam free.
We went out to meet Mr Sun..
We had picnics…
We took selfies…
We sang, we danced,
We giggled and we laughed…
We had so many “birthdays” because she loved it so much…
And we went out to see the world…
And through it all, Little Foot learned and we learned too.
It’s been a year of great self-exploration and adventures, I daresay.
It’s was also a year where I was more absent… And also a year where we found it trickier to deal with her tantrums and antics.
Through it all, we learned and she learned too. We grew stronger and closer.
Dear Little Foot, this year, we all had to adjust a lot to Mummy’s new work routine, which would take me away from you a lot more, and see me more distracted when I am around. I can sense how much you miss me these days, and I feel your anguish at my sporadic absence. And I thank you for your neverending, overflowing love for me.
As we approach THREE, things may not be easier, but hopefully you will be able to better understand and be more patient with me, as I try to be with you. Let’s continue to grow together!
Thanks for a year that was filled with so many Little Foot memories that I thank God over and over again for you. As always, Mummy and Daddy hope that your days be filled with happiness, and may you grow up well and healthy. Know that through good times and bad, you will always be my baby and I only have the deepest love for you.
Happy Birthday, my dearest girl… let’s celebrate all through December!
Love as always,
