~And what could be more beautiful,than bringing a new life into the world #Anaikasbigone
This was captured when Anaika was only three days old.Last 365 days with her went in a blink of an eye.”Every first is special and so is this letter.Many years down the line I am sure she will be happy when she will read this.
“Time flies” has a new meaning all together after your arrival.From teeny tiny baby who used to wrap her hand around my fingers to making silly faces to grab everyone’s attention this one year with you is nothing less than “Terrific”.As, you complete one year with us your Mumma is going through myriad of emotions from past few days.I still remember those three months when I was sad because I couldn’t conceive & even the day (26th Aug’16) when I saw those two pink lines which marked the beginning of “our” journey.
From two pink lines to a cute bundle of happiness who was placed on my arms to today when you are “O.N.E “you have changed the definition of happiness.There was an instant love & protectiveness when I saw you.Heart stopped & started with a whole new rhythm.Everything looked so perfect.
Initial days were like a never ending circle ofbreastfeeding,pumping,burping,changing diapers and putting you to sleep.Those were the most overwhelmed & overtired days of my life.Everyday was like a never ending marathon & I wanted you to grow up soon.And today I just want to stop time & want you to be this little forever,my teeny tiny baby! Everytime I saw you I used to think “God was she the one who was dancing inside my tummy”.
We have clapped together,celebrated each of your milestones,cried together,laughed together. In a way, we all grew together over the past year.Of all the learnings we did in last one year the best learning we have done is learning “eachother”.
I have never loved anyone as much as I love you.Everyday I think How will I ever keep you safe? You made me found that piece of my heart which was missing since forever, I found a new “me” & now this life has a new meaning all together.Your first cry changed the dimensions so many emotions deep within me:the love, the fear, the wonder & the pride.Everything grew in abundance!
In last one year I had my set of yelling ,nervous breakdowns & emotional turmoils.But amidst the chaos your smile were like flashes of delights which made this journey worth living for.
I gave birth to you & you gave birth to “US”.Me & your daddy truly wanted you prayed for you & loved you even before we saw you.We love you so much – you have changed our world and our family is complete because you are part of it.I wish you get everything you ever wish in your life.You were a part of me & that invisible umbilical cord between us will be there forever!
Happy First Birthday, Anaika
Love you forever and more
