Dedicated to You

Dear Ziggy,

My 35th birthday and my first Mother’s Day are quickly approaching. It’s gotten me thinking about a bunch of things. I’ve been thinking about how things happen for a reason. My life hasn’t always been wonderful. But now that you are here, I feel like letting go of a ton of baggage in order to make room for enjoying my life with you. It’s time to let go of things and get over it. Because you (yes, it’s corny) make me want to be a better person.

I was always kind of waiting for something to happen to me. I would have been waiting forever, you see. Well, I made you happen and it’s the best thing I ever did. If you want something, you have to take action. Otherwise, life is just going to whiz by without you.

You give me purpose, Daniel Ziggy Chin. But more than that, you inspire me to be better and to make you proud. If that’s all I get out of life, it is enough.

Your love is more than enough.

I love you more than anything.

Testing

Dear Ziggy,

You’re finally big enough for the baby swing. You seemed to enjoy this, but we aren’t entirely sure.

We’ve been taking a little break from all our social outings since your nap schedule has changed. You are always sleeping when it’s time to leave for playgroups and walks with our stroller buddies.

You learned to crawl last week. You’ve also developed some major separation anxiety. And Daddy has gone back to work so you’ve been keeping me busy, to say the least.

You’re on the move and getting into everything. You’re testing your limits and my limits. It’s part of growing up and we’ll be growing up together, now.

Good thing you’re cute. That’s all I have to say about that.

Yours,
Mama

Dear Ziggy,

Let’s accessorize!

Now that we’ve gotten that out of our system, we feel so much better.
