Dearest Daughter of mine, Hi from Aai here after a long long time 🙂 Time is running crazy in our lives but we manage to get hold of each other for those tiny bites and giggles and cuddles and hugs.
I’ve come to notice that you don’t like being around too much with anyone. Gives me strength to go to work every day. When we are home you love playing with us but for a finite time and then you very strictly tell us “ata baash” [now enough in Marathi].
Talking about your reading mania..yes yes it is the same me who wanted you to love books and today calling it as a mania! I told few of my friends sometime back that ‘I sure wanted a book lover child but not such an ardent lover who wakes us up to read books in the middle of the night!’ Sigh,what they say is right, you must watch your thoughts while wishing for anything 🙂
Jokes apart, your library is growing with each passing month. You can now identify characters like Bruno [Boono] , Noddy , Cinderella [Ceeyaya] and Bobo the monkey! It is really really funny to see you imitate what each character is shown doing in the book, so be it Noddy sitting with both his palms on his cheeks or Bobo sitting on the rock rubbing his eyes crying, or the Cinderella dancing with the prince in the party or Bruno reaching out for the cookies jar standing on the stool 🙂
A picture recently taken at Crossword:
Chirpy, you are the love of my life! I’d never love anyone else like this…I wonder if I’ll do this to my second baby too or no…far fetched thoughts but these come to my mind often when I look at you. Like every mother I’m protective of you, I want you to be independent, I want you to watch your steps while you walk, I want you to read, I want you to be a good human being and I want to capture your childhood in my heart, forever and ever and ever to stay with me till I die!
Children do this to parents. They change and so have we! Both your baba and I are a changed human beings almost 2 years from your birth now….whoa 2 years???? You’ll soon turn 2 darling, can you believe it? I sure for one cannot!
Even today I look at your old pictures…your baby pictures from the day one and I cry… I’m overwhelmed with the miracle called motherhood! I don’t know if you will understand all of it sometime when you will read this, maybe not. But we’ll recap all these letters when you are a mother to a little munchkin yourself 🙂 aww… see your silly mom can think of such a far away future 😛
You’ve started talking everything. You know how to join 2 words and make short sentences. Going by this rate I’m sure in a months time you’ll be able to make sentences with more than 2 words. I’m waiting, eagerly waiting for you to talk to me non-stop. Like I’ve heard from other mothers that once the button is switched on the battery never goes off ; ) I want to reach there, yes I really want to 🙂
So come to me and ask questions, tell me your answers, let’s discuss things and argue on few and agree on the rest ! Let’s just have our girlie time of our lives and love each other every moment more so ! Baba sometimes gets jealous of me cause he can sense that there is a special relationship between you and me, with unspoken words we share so much! When you are really crazy it is only me who can calm you down but wait a minute there are other times when you only prefer baba to me! I too feel jealous of him! Ha, see what I meant by changed human beings? Exactly this 🙂 🙂
My-soon-to-be-2 girl, you know how much mamma loves you right? Yesh yesh I know on being asked this question you instantly spread both your hands to show thiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiis much 🙂 and I love you for that sweetheart 🙂
to my chocopie, with all my love,
