Happy Birthday, my Love

My dearest little darling,

It seems only yesterday that I was carrying you and it is already been one year!
We have learnt so much from you... much more that we can ever hope to teach you.
You already seem to sense people who need special care... the way you reach out to them is amazing and humbling. Your eyes sparkle when you smile and it lits up the entire room with festive lights. You are such a happy child and that is all we want. We want you to be happy and healthy.
You have unlocked the mother in me. Shown me feelings that I never knew I was capable of. I sometimes lose my patience but you have forgiven me always. I am learning baby.. am learning every day and I sincerely hope I will do better and better. Because I have the most loving and persevering teacher in you.
We love you so much baby. Words can't express it.

Am reminded of this quote today:

Oh! what a tangled web we weave
When first we practice to deceive!

Just feeling lost today.

C and Baby S

One thing that I haven't mentioned in all my updates of Baby S is how she and her dad have this magical telepathy between them, that has left me dumbstruck on numerous occasions.

I think they had this going right from the time I was pregnant. Whenever C played the guitar, I could feel her move around..as if dancing to his song :-)

And right from when she was like a month or so, whenever C said specific things (like 'who's the baby here', 'gundu papa yaaru?' (who is the fat baby?)), she used to give this cute smile :-)

And as far as I can remember, except for one single day, Baby S goes to sleep only after he comes home from office. Am really not exaggerating, but she does hAnd since C comes home quite late most of the days, you can imagine when Baby S sleeps!

Now, C left for Delhi on Tuesday morning. This is how the sleep time - wake time worked between C and Baby S.

Tue. Night - C calls at 9.15 to say goodnight. Baby S sleeps by 9.30
Wed. Morning - C wakes up at 9 and calls. Baby S wakes up by 9.15.
Wed. Night - C calls up at 10.30. Baby S sleeps by 11.
Thur. Morning - C is up at 7.30 for a training. Baby S wakes up at 7.45!!!

What is this thing going on between them??
