Happy Five Months!
I got home from school today to the sweet surprise that it was your birthday yet again! You seem to have many of those. In fact, I asked mommy wasn’t it your birthday yesterday? For me yesterday is any day that’s not today, or tomorrow. Not complaining though, cake or no cake, I love singing for you.
You are almost sitting up on your own. You are already wearing clothes that I wore not so long ago, because you are chubby and I have mostly been skinny. Mommy took some of my toys yesterday and put them in a separate box, stating that they now belong to you. Rattles, a monkey and a small palm size book. I was jealous, but watching you grab each one of them and put them in your mouth was quite hilarious. I think you are not getting full on milk, perhaps you need to start eating chicken like I do. But then again you do not have teeth, so I guess we will just have to wait till they sprout.
I don’t think anyone completely understands how much I love you. That’s why I make a fuss in the morning to kiss you goodbye whether you are asleep or awake, even if I am running late for school or getting daddy late for work. Same reason I run straight to your bedroom every day when I get home from school, if I don’t find you in the living room. Not a single day has passed that I have not remembered to pray for you when I go to bed at night.
I remember the day you came into my life very clearly. It was quite an interesting encounter as I recounted here and here. Yesterday I said to mommy “Thank you for bringing Xia from the hostital” and her eyes were filled with tears. I don’t know why that would make her sad, but there’s lots of things I don’t understand about grownups.
I can’t wait to play hide and seek with you, carry you on my motorbike and play Lego and puzzles together. I love you my baby sister.
