2 years ago, a day like today, Twas on a Thursday, i finally got to see you. You had been kicking me so hard for the last 2 months prior. You looked so grey, they didnt clean you well. Grey is the colour of the placenta.
You were so innocent i almost confessed my sins to you. Such an innocence!
The clothes couldn’t fit you though. You were so tiny and so was your nose. Your nose is still tiny.
You weighed 3.9kgs at birth, slightly higher than the normal range that is 3.5. But who set those ranges? Forget it.
I fell in love with you way before i set my eyes on you.
I got few questions for you. Why did you have to wait till the 40th week? I thought you would be out by the 36th week. I know what you will say: you loved the warmth inside the womb. We only live once there. Security and food is granted. Lol!
Anyway, it has been 2 years. You now have teeth, can call me mum, Or sometimes when you get naughty, kui.
Its been a journey,son, though it seems we are just starting.
I love you so much i have to confess am jealous of you having a sibling lest they share in your love. Crazy, i know!
Am wishing you God’s favour and grace. May He always shield you my son from pressures of the world. May you learn to live a satisfactory life, find you fire and chase it. Whatever your hands find to do, give it your best baby.
Pursue your dreams. One last thing, be compassionate for others. Do not only look out for your own needs, do care also for your friends and the less fortunate.
Fear the Lord,baby, and once you identify your area of service, serve zealously. Like your father. You can ask him on that. Main reason being that you are my firstborn. Son, and as such, you belong to the Lord. I dedicated you to the Lord. Am only looking after you for the Lord.
I will always love you my baby. You are my friend and a source of joy. When i count my blessings,i count you several times.
Happy 2nd birthday.
