It’s always a surprise, growing up.
You are by far the best surprise we’ve ever had. You see, she is my first love. She’s stronger than how she often portrays herself, and I think it came as a surprise to her too, when you came into this world and she was braver.
I may be her first love, but you are her last. That I am sure of.
I know I haven’t really been as around as I wanted to be, but your growth never fails to surprise me. You’re a happy kid. And you’re full of laughter. You have no idea how much you changed her life. I believe you made her a better person.
And that, my dear Chuchi, is a gift no one else can give to her.
I am happy you have found your tongue and are now exploring your feet. You will be a shoe-aholic, like me. That’s my gift to you. I cannot wait for the day we can shop shoes together. I hope when that day comes, you will no longer find joy in sucking on your toe. :) I love you!
