Many of you know we celebrated Zega’s Birthday two months ago. My Adventurous little boy turned one! And today, I would like to take this opportunity to write a letter to him, though I know he is not going to read this until ten years from now. But time flies, and I know one day as a mom, I will be amazed at how much he will have grown and learned.
Dear Zega (my son),
May 5, 2016. That’s the exact date I found out I was pregnant with my second child. My first reaction was delighted, excited, and nervous because I know motherhood is not easy! But I was wrong; you’re the easiest baby I know! You hardly ever cry. You’re very calm and so observant. Traveling with you between the age of 4 months old until one year was not a problem. So much that people admired how easy you are. So I called you my Adventurous Baby. I remember every party we went to; other guests would wait for you to cry and complain. So, then I called you my Little Social one – You like to explore and find new things, but most of all, you like to eat and feed yourself with a spoon, even though it sometimes makes a big mess. After eating with a spoon, you like to hang on to it until you fall asleep. I’m guessing one day you could be a chef or a food critic. You like books, pens, paper, and markers. So maybe even a writer one day? You could also be a wrestler since we wrestle every time I change your diaper. You like to ride your little car with your dad; we think you can be a rider You’re fascinated with dogs & you and cats like to climb and like to run. My boy. my son Zega, I have so many wishes and hopes for you. I know one day you will make your own decision, but I hope you always remember to follow your heart, pursue your dreams, and never give up! Your family is always here for you.
I love it when you hold my face and kiss me. You’re the sweetest boy I ever had. Every time your dad bites your chubby rolls, you don’t cry – you shake your head instead to show him not to do it! I believe you’ll be a strong man of few words, but you will know how to express how you feel. And I know you have compassion with others – I witness that with my two eyes. One time your sister fell pretty hard, while you were sleeping. You woke up because you heard her crying. Right away, you stood and walked towards her and held her face as you hugged her and cried with her. I love to see how you comfort your sister, and I know one day you will be a kind and very responsible man.
I love you, Zega. Life can be tough and sometimes will make you feel down, but always remember that it is only a challenge, and you will get through it! I believe in you.
Thank you so much for being such a good boy; I love you sweetheart….and I’m happy having you as my son. Thank you for giving me this beautiful journey!
