12 Feb Dear Ariel – My birthday wishes for you.
Estimated reading time 2 minutes (plus a cute 14 second video)
My dearest Ariel, tomorrow is your 2nd birthday. I want to wish you a Happy birthday my beautiful angel and I would like to make a few wishes on your behalf.
I wish, for you, that you continue to be curious yet cautious. I love how “you suss it out” before attempting new things and interacting with new people. You won’t commit if you are not ready and that shows me that you are thinking and that you know your limitations. Your safety is important to you. You are very smart my baby, and I am so proud of you.
I wish, for you, that you continue along this journey in life with the same excellent health that you have had so far. You are hardly ever sick despite having Down syndrome causing a low immune system. My strong girl …. 🙂
I wish, for you, that your gentle nature its nurtured by this world and you continue to accept the love you get from your family and friends. Everyone who knows you loves you very much. Everyone that cares for you tells me what a good girl you are. Strangers in the street greet your warmly and your cute photos and videos warm the hearts of our friends on social media.
And finally, I wish for you, that I can be the best mummy I can possibly be. I want to give you as many great experiences as I can. I promise to love you and protect you and most importantly to let you be naturally, wholesomely and innocently You. You are so perfect and I look forward to another year with you.
