Today you turn 17 months, how time fly so fast. I miss your baby smell, the hairless head, the toothless smiles, and everything about there is when you are just a baby. But saying that, I love all there is about your walks to toddler hood too. I love that I can make small talks to you now because you can understand me. I love how you pull me up every time you hear a dance beat because you want us to dance. I love that I can share my food to you now, just like today we are sharing a piece of orange and you liked it and kept asking for more every time you finished your own wedge. I love that you are wild and daring, it is so scary and exciting to watch. Will you always be so brave? Lovingly reckless? I love how you say "abu" (love you) right after you give me a kiss. You are such a delight to watch my happy spirited little girl.
As you grow older I'm seeing so much of your daddy in you, just like what I prayed for. But I'm seeing so much that is just you too, perfect in every way- loving, sweet, ever so curious,ever beautiful.
To have you might be one of God's joke on us but I want you to know that you are the best joke ever given to us and the funniest one ever. Your daddy and I love you SOBRAH!
