|8 months old Sophia|
I can't count how many of my lipsticks you've ruined already. You always love to try things on your own. Mostly girly stuffs like mani and pedis and how you love to have same colors with mommy. You search my bag for make-ups and demands to put it on. In your cute little voice you tell me,
" look mommy, pretty pia"
Oh yes you are. With or without make up.
Now I find your curiosity cute. My little me, putting on make up. Putting mommy's stilletos, wanting mommy's bag and you wanting to have the same manis and pedis. You are so adorable. Today I let you explore, to feed your curiosity because that's the only way you learn best.
BUT sooner I might be discouraging you from doing the things that ONLY ladies should be doing... not because I don't want you to, in time we will go shopping for all those pretty things and mommy is already excited with the thought.
But for now, I want you to be your age... crazy hair, face full of icing/ icecream/ chocolates or whatever evidence of food you just ate, mismatched clothes, unpaired socks, in your diapers... without worrying about vanity and weight and hairstyles. Because everything has its season. I want you to enjoy every phase of your life and have good memories to look back.
Don't go rushing, savor each moment.
I want to teach Sophia a lot of things and I'm scared I might miss out on the things I know now.
This post is for her.
For her to remember how everything was when she was still little
For her to never forget the values I want her to keep forever and most especially...
For her to know in her heart, the GREAT LOVE I have for her.
