An Open Letter For The Girl Who Stole My Heart (part 3 of 3)

Dear Mila Alessandra,

The past twelve months (and a little more before that) had been a great journey for me. A journey i never knew I will be taking until you came. And there's no looking back.

The years are really too short. And I feel that each day is getting shorter too. I want to spend each moment with you to play, eat, learn. But mom also needs to work and rest and take care of dad and do house chores. It breaks my heart that I only get to spend a few hours with you each day. Yet those time are also the greatest and you always got little new tricks to show me.

You love your crib now, only because you can stand for hours while watching your shows. You also started to use your rocking chair again after hating it for a few months. You can even climb on it on your own. You have mastered words from "Your Baby Can Read" and I think you are getting bored with it. You know how to trick dad into giving you his earphone. The whole house is not enough for you to explore anymore, you want to walk outside now which delights me and bothers me at the same time. Can't blame a worried, weary mom, can you? But how can I resist when you start putting on your shoes by yourself? Who ever though you that, you clever kid!

You are learning and doing new things each day, mommy can hardly keep up. But my most favorite thing you do is when you kiss me. You kiss me when you want to wake me up. You kiss me good morning when you wake up. You kiss me goodbye. And you kiss me too when you see Dad giving me a peck. You just have to join in. Lucky me! Oh, you just love giving me surprise kisses. You are sweet like that. Oh, you can be cranky too and a bit of a snub. I like that about you. You only give your smile to people you adore. I feel more special when I see your 3-toothed smile. Dad keeps saying you are unfair because you only want mom when I'm around. I'll savor these times. Soon, you may hate me just for being mom, and you will be a daddy's girl. At least I got a few years on you already.

I am just so thankful to be your mom. You keep me grounded and you make me soar high too. You are my greatest joy and exactly what I needed in my life.

Please stay smart, happy, and healthy. We both have a lot of growing up to do. Mom and Dad will always be here to guide you. And I am lucky I got you to guide me too.

Happy Birthday Babe, My Little Cupcake Princess. My Mila Alessandra!
