My Little Miracle

The exciting story of God's very special gift to Mama & Papa…

A letter to my son…

on October 5, 2013

Dear Leonidas,

How quickly time had flown by. Just 2 months ago, I held you in my arms for the first time, being in awe of a miracle that had just happened! You were so tiny and perfect! Can’t believe you were inside my womb for 9 whole months and grew from a tiny little cell. The past 2 months has been a great journey. I have learnt a lot being with you and you have taught me so much patience and how to enjoy the little things in life. I just want you to know that I love you and I love being your mother. It is an honor being your mother and being responsible for you; a gift from God.

There are times where I felt really stressed and tired because I do not know what you want or need. When you cry, it breaks my heart. And sometimes, I cry together with you too. Often, I get frustrated with you because I am doing what I can to soothe you, but you kept on screaming. I am sorry if I had to walk away sometimes to get some air and let you be on your own. Again, it breaks my heart but I have to do so, or I may accidentally hurt you. I want you to know too, that I am always here for you; when you need a snuggle, when you want to be held, when you need to nurse, or just need some help going back to sleep.

Just these past few days, you have learnt to smile and using a lot of eye contact. You smile the biggest when you wake in the morning and after a diaper change. You have the cutest smile with a dimple! You are looking at your surroundings a lot and recognize voices when someone talks to you. Slowly, you are also getting into routine; the time you sleep/wake/nurse/bath/naps (which you only catnap 30 mins max each time).

I love spending time with you every day and being here for you. I know I will miss you very much when I get back to work next month. You will be at daycare and someone else will be watching over you. I dread for that time to come because I will not be able to snuggle you or hold you as much as I wanted. I know too, that it is going to be very hard for me. And I don’t even know if you will be able to cope well there. As hard as it may be, I pray that God will be our comfort and we will have peace being separated for the day. Do know that if it was ever possible, I would stay at home longer to be with you. But Mama needs to work and help Papa support our family. And also ensure that you have a better future.

Dear little one,

Please don’t cry and don’t be sad. We still have about 3 more weeks together. I will make sure that these 3 weeks spent with you are precious and we will continue to learn together. Your smile is contagious so let’s keep smiling! I love you very much.

Your Mother
