My dear V,
You are two, how did it happen so fast? I could barely see my feet over my huge belly and now I can barely catch up with you. You speak in full sentences, to tell me you are happy, sad, lonely, frustrated, excited and sleepy. On some days you can eat more than I do.
You let me cuddle you and kiss your rosy cheeks. And let me hold you just a moment longer even though you want to go.
You love to sing and dance
You love to draw and read books
You are brave to the point of danger
You don’t listen to any warnings we give
You smile at us and say it will be okay
“I do it self” is your motto
You are so peaceful and tranquil and greet every obstacle with patience and a smile
Your babyhood went so fast. I feel like it slipped through my fingers like the fine sand of an hour glass. I feel the tug in my heart to hold on, to keep you small. You are still so small but I forget because you want to be big, “like sister”. My heart says just give us another day.
