Happy third baby boy!
Who says time flies with kids? This last year just couldn’t go with you. Yes, you were a handful this year. God, what a mischievous, willful and quick little child you have been. I only had to blink an eye and you jumped into a water of bucket, while I was somehow able to clean up the mess and you, you were there painting the wall with oil.
Well I haven’t planned to talk about it here, but now that I am getting a flash of all of it. Let me just list it down here so that you know how patient your mom was. Putting massage oil into the fish-tank to overfeeding the fishes, Catching them by your hand to feeding them snacks, I think poor fishes took most of it from you. And the water, water is continued to be your favorite as of now. Be it winters, summers, rains; a spoonful, a glass or a bucket full of water you just wanted to be in it. Sometimes laughing at your acts sometimes shouting at you, sometimes fixing you up and sometimes fixing up myself is all what I did this last year.
Actually now when I look back through the year I believe we had a blast baby. And did I tell you how excited were you to see a peacock in our backyard and how we made stories with him as a hero. 😊
You are amusing us with all the baby shenanigans’ you could do . Talking in the honey-glazed voices and words or making me run around you for a single morsel of food. Everyone around you is feeling the utmost joy of being with you. The thing that I enjoy the most is whenever I say “I Love You” you always have this “I Love you “ ready even in your sleep. Those were all the words I had, to express how blessed I feel to have you in my life and to be honest I am still looking for some more of them.
Just a little glitch in our otherwise magical fairytale world is COVID. Do you remember me telling you about this in the last letter? Yes, we survived the first wave and just when the things were getting back to normal the second wave hit, deadlier than before. As I write this letter to you, we are in the self imposed lockdown due to the severe peak in new cases.
As a parent I feel it was the best age of yours to explore your surroundings. And not being able to do so is affecting your social growth. Anyways, we are trying our best to keep your social skills up to date.
Like I used to do in my previous birthday letter, today as well; I am going to tell you about that one thing which you always need to believe in. And that is “You are enough”.
By that I don’t mean to boost your ego but want you to understand that there is nothing that can stop you to achieve what you wish for. You don’t need to be dependent on anything or anyone for your desires. And my baby trust me, all you have to do is just wish with all your might and work with the same will. And I promise you will get what you wish; my own experience. There is no force in the world that may want good for you more than you. So always, have your faith in yourself. Self doubt is not worthy of you. You can get what you want and you can be what you want. All you have to do is being faithful to yourself.
There are going to be many affairs when others will doubt you and might ask you to stop. But my dear, no one knows your strength and weaknesses more than you, not even me. So it is only and only your choice when to go ahead and when to backdown. And there is no harm in backing down Avyaan, it’s perfectly fine. Because all what you do is only going to change you for good and no one else. A struggle is either going to make you a winner or a learner; nothing less and nothing more. Just crave hard, wish hard, work hard and not to forget party hard 😉.
With all this gyaan , closing this birthday letter. I hope this brings a smile to you whenever you read it.
Love you to the moon and back my Parrot (that’s what I am calling you these days)
Read the last letter that I wrote on his second birthday.
