The many firsts that you gave to us, those were precious moments. Until today, your mom and I still talk about it. I remembered the very first time you smiled at me, that was a few minutes after you were born. And that first look when you opened your eyes.
Your mom heard our first laughter about 3 weeks ago, and I heard it just yesterday. These moments we don’t forget.
As you slowly blossom into the person that you are, we’ll be seeing lots of firsts, and they’ll all be in etched in our memories for far longer than that infinite moment. We’ll be eagerly looking forward to hearing your first word, whether it’s going to be ‘mama’ (I suspect it will) or ‘papa’. But which ever word it is, it’ll be the most precious word you’ll utter.
We’ll be seeing your first roll on the bed, or off the bed, we’ll be witnessing your step on your own. I can already imagine my own disbelief when I see you stand up by yourself, and subsequently probably falling down. Let’s hope it’s not too hard of a thud.
Further down the years, I’ll be walking you to your first class, and for you to introduce us your first friend, and perhaps not too distant a future, your first word written.
While all the photos that we took have been seen over and over again, it is still the first shot of you that forever will be the cover page.
It is often said the first thought is the truest and your many firsts are truly the truest of feelings that we have in witnessing them. It is of joy, bliss, power and humbleness. Thank you, my sweetie pie.
