Week 1

Darling AOI,
i am writing this entry while you sleep in the swing. AOIswing
In just a week you’ve grown so much.
Every time i look at you I catch my breathe, because it feels like dreaming, just a week ago you were dancing down from my womb. You are such a beautiful dream transformed into reality. I will never stop saying this because IT IS TRUE.
I still have to write your birth story, it was the most beautiful and empowering experience in my entire life to date. I can’t wait to put it into words.
Welcoming you into the world the way I envisage it was a blessing. Having you in our arms at the end of Friday 18th November was speechless. 8.32 pm is the time you were born. We never thought it was going to be an easy ride as it was. You are enriching our lives very much.
We are learning how to care for another human being who doesn’t have a say yet and we hope we are doing it right. God gave you to us and we promise to protect and guide you with all our might.
I am taking everything day with an open heart, even the challenges. Last night you found it difficult to sleep easily but in the end we managed to sooth you to sleep. I don’t see it as a bad night but just another turning curve. As crazy as it may sound I will enjoy the sleepless nights as a mother because they are worth it. I want to enjoy each minute of this journey.
When you cry I console you by speaking a mix of Ghanaian and English. I kiss your tender sweet cheeks. You are delicate and innocent and you make my heart melt. AOImummy Daddy is very helpful, he does everything to help. He cleans you, soothes you to sleep and plays with you. He cannot take his eyes off you for a minute. AOIdaddy I love to watch him watch you, it fills and calms my heart to know that you have such a wonderful father. He is enchanted by you. I feel blessed to have both of you in my life.
We love your silky and smooth hair, it reminds us of superman’s curl.
Just like daddy, I love watching you sleep. Your little arms stretching in the air tells me your strength. Your cooing in your sleep tells me you enjoy your sleep.
You are very clever. As soon as you came from my womb you breathed out without any help. Within minutes from there you learnt how to eat from me and your body is releasing all the necessary waste.
There is so much more I want to write but we have the whole time in this world.
I love you dearly,
Mummy TOI.
