Week 5 – All I Want For Christmas

Dear sweet AOI,
in two days you will celebrate your first Christmas with us. I am so excited for the occasion because in my 2011 resolution I asked God for a baby and He was so kind He gave us you, an angel. The one that makes parenthood a bliss. You suit your name so well.

I don’t know how sad I would have been if you didn’t come this year, you are really all I want for Christmas.  PC146566

I will never stop saying how glad I am to be your mother because you make motherhood so nice and cosy. You have great lungs when you are hungry and wet and sleepy but other than that you give me time to enjoy my hobbies. Sometimes I don’t want to put you down because I feel like I need you close by each minute, I am learning to let you sleep in your bouncer. In that way I can organise the house.
You are very young so you will not remember this Christmas but I am going to take load of pictures so we can remember together when you are older.
Today last year I wrote my ideal Christmas. In the post I shared how I would like you and future sibling to know the true meaning of Christmas is more than the gifts. For me Christmas is about giving back without expecting anything in return. But most importantly to be together with family and God, as opposed to focus on materialism.
Your uncle G. wanted to come over here even if he didn’t have the money but he wanted to be with family so he found the means to come. I am happy he is here and he was so happy to hold you while saying “You are worth every penny.” AOIuncle   I must confess, it is touching to watch him talk to you, he is a good loving uncle. I am glad he made it for Christmas in Canada with us, especially for you. That shows how important we are to him.
I better stop here before I become all emotional – must be the hormones. But really, having a family member for Christmas is a blessing.
Happy first Christmas. All the family love and mine times trillion.
Your Mummy TOI
