Birthday letters for my daughter. Mom-in-training gives you all the details about raising a little girl in today’s crazy world. I send my daughter monthly letters.

Nid’s 5th Birthday Letter

Happy Birthday, doll! May God bless you with all life’s joys and happiness. May you forever be loved and blessed. May you grow to become a beautiful person, inside and out. May you always know how much your mommy and daddy love you. God bless you, my darling. 

The past five years have gone by far to fast. Your daddy and I are amazed at how quickly you’re growing up and how independent you’re becoming. From the day we brought you home, you were the blessing in our home and lives and with every day that passes, we are reminded by the blessing you are. 

This year, you’ve become more independent than ever. You’re helping me in the kitchen with cooking and baking cakes (with the hope of licking the frosting off the spoons). You’ve helped me hang laundry and fold your own clothes. You’ve even encouraged me to read more, as your interest to visit the library has sparked an interest in me and so our weekly library visits have turned into a special time for both of us. 

You started French immersion school this year and have taken on the new language with such interest and pride. Your favourite song, bonjour les amie, is amazing to listen to, even though you sing it over and over again. You love counting in French and we’ve made a game out of it. It’s fantastic how quickly you’re picking it all up. We are so proud of you and your accomplishments.

Congratulations, my doll for achieving so much this past year. God bless you always. Mommy and daddy love you dearly! Happy 5th Birthday!

Nid’s 4 Year Birthday Letter

Nid started junior kindergarten a month ago and now her 4th birthday is coming up. I can’t believe how quickly time is flying by. She’s growing up so quickly and my mother instincts want to hang on to her and stop her from soaring away. But I know it’s good for her and me that she grow, become independent and soar towards her independence. It’s just so hard letting go.She’s going to be 4 years old today and I just cannot believe where the past four years have gone by. It’s amazing how much Dev and I have learned because of and from this little person. We’ve learned tolerance, patience, to love without expectation and unconditionally. We’ve learned how a soft giggle and silent smile can bring overwhelming joy to our hearts. We’ve learned to multitask and go with the flow. We’ve learned that you could “deep clean” your home, spending multiple hours doing so and it could look like a tornado hit it 10 minutes later. She’s taught us this growing a year older is a blessing because the year ahead will be a whole new set of adventures and experiences to mark in my memoirs. 
And now when her fourth birthday is upon us, I just want to thank the Gods above for bringing this little being into my life at the most unexpected time ever. She is the blessing I needed and I am so grateful for her. She is the purpose of my smiles and the person who gives me that warm, tingling feeling in my heart. 
Happy 4th Birthday Nid! Mommy and Daddy love you dearly! 

Ni’s 3rd Birthday Party

Although both Nid and I were sick with a cold, we celebrated her third birthday this past weekend. She was so excited that her friends were coming over to play with her, that I didn’t have the heart to cancel her party. It was a fun-filled day and she was so happy; which was worth all the effort and energy D and I put into making her party happen.

She’s grown up so much, it amazes me every time I think about it. She was such a good girl, shared her toys and goodies with her friends and there were no breakdowns or tantrums. We played a couple of games; hot balloon and toss the ball in the bucket and all the kids ate and enjoyed themselves, as did their parents. Overall, I think my first toddler birthday party was a big success!

Here are some photos of her special day!

Ni's Year In Review
Ni’s Year In Review

Happy Birthday, darling!

I can’t believe you’re three years old! Time has flown by so quickly. I remember the day you were born, you were so tiny and fragile and now, you are such a big girl. You’re riding a bike now, you can open the fridge and freezer doors. You know how to tidy up your room on your own and put on your clothes. You can grab a snack on your own and share one with mommy and daddy too.

You’ve become so independent and as much as daddy and I would like to think so, you’re not our little baby anymore. You’re our big girl now and we are so happy to see what a beautiful girl you are becoming.

You started pre-school earlier this year, it was hard at first, but you’ve gotten used to it now and love it. You also have a new babysitter, Kiesha and she’s grown so close to you, as you have to her.

As you start another year and grow bigger, smarter, more beautiful, mommy and daddy want you to know that we love you so much, more than anything in the world. Your smiles help soothe all of our pains and miseries and take away all of our stress. No matter how big you get or how old you are, you will always be our darling baby girl and we’ll love just as much tomorrow as we do today.

Three Years Old!

Happy Birthday, sweetheart. Hugs and kisses for another beautiful year ahead. Xoxo

Ni’s 32nd Month Birthday Letter

Happy 32nd Month Birthday, baby girl!

I know mommy has been absolutely terrible at writing your birthday letters the past couple of months. But so much has been going on that mommy just forgets. I’m sorry darling!

You’ve started a new pre-school and are growing into such a beautiful little girl. You also started your terrible twos! So, you’ve been quite the handful these past couple of months. You throw tantrums and toys across the house. You yell and pinch and cry if you don’t get your way. But you’re not all that terrible. You give the sweetest hugs and kisses all the time. You hold mine and daddy’s hand and jump up and down. You say, “I love you” and “good morning/night”. You mostly always say please and thank you; which makes me so proud of how polite you are.

You are growing up so quickly, my darling. With only a couple of months left until your third birthday, I am uncertain of how time has flown by so quickly. But know that no matter how old you get, mommy and daddy will love you dearly and you’ll always be our little angel.

Here are some pictures of the past couple of months I missed to write birthday letters to you about.

Lunch date with mommy!
Daddy and you went raspberry picking with your pre-school.
Hari and I went grocery shopping and you were with us. while we put away the rest of the groceries, you found your way into the strawberries ans ate half the box. there were strawberries everywhere!
You and daddy; hand-in-hand. Our trip to costco
Liat came down for a visit and decided to pick you up after daycare. The two of you are always all giggles and kisses.
My little diva ready for an evening out with mommy! You are such a little poser.
You love roasted sweet corn: at the taste of the Danforth.
You and me playing with the bubble gun Jia got for you, at the taste of Danforth.
My little Indian princess, all dressed up to go with Nani and Nanu to the temple.
Sunday morning shenanigans with daddy. All he wanted was to take a little nap but you turned him into your horsey.
At the end of the night after a long day at CNE, you decided you would finally sit in your stroller, holding all the toys mommy won for you!

Ni’s 31st Month Birthday Letter & Starting Pre-School Details

myangelHappy 31 Months, baby. Mommy is sorry for not writing your 2 and a half years birthday and this letter sooner. I’ve battled physical pains and emotional stresses a lot lately and it completely slipped my mind to write these letters for you.

So much has happened over the past couple of months. You are 2 and a half years old, baby girl! Wow! How has time flown by so quickly? Last Friday, June 5th was your last day at daycare. You didn’t understand what that meant, but mommy certainly did. It was a sad day to say goodbye to all of your friends and the loving staff. But when one door closes, another will open and it did!

You started pre-school on Monday. You were terrified by all the new faces and environment. I was terrified to leave you with strangers once again. I almost cried while speaking to the supervisor but she reassured me that you would be well-taken care of and would get used to your new “school” soon. 4-days in and you are definitely getting used to it and have begun liking it there. But mommy still doesn’t seem comfortable yet.

My heart still pounds with anxiety every time daddy calls me and tells me he’s just dropped you off. I still feel the urge to call the pre-school to check-up on you and ask if you’ve eaten, slept or had any issues with the other kids or teachers. I called the first two days and the teachers reassured me that you only cried when daddy dropped you off and once involved in activities, the tears went away.

Yesterday, you didn’t cry at all; which is a great sign that you’re enjoying herself.

I can’t believe you have become such a big-girl. You are so independent now and it’s amazing. You’re not a baby anymore, except for when you get a boo-boo and need mommy to kiss it all better and yell at the piece of furniture that hurt you (which you bumped into yourself because you’re clumsy).

You also have a “special friend”. His name is Jason. He’s a little toy doll at your old daycare that has become your best-friend. Everything you talk about has Jason involved in it. When I go back to your old daycare to pick up the rest of your things, I’ll take a picture of Jason and send it to your email, so that you can remember him forever!

Anyway, sweetheart. Please keep growing into this beautiful, loving girl that you are becoming and keep making mommy and daddy fall in love with a little more every day. We love you, darling angel. Happy 31st Birthday.

Mommy~

Ni’s 29th Birthday Letter

image1Happy 29th Birthday, sweetheart!

I can’t believe that you are almost a 2 and half years old and will be going to pre-school at the end of next month. Time has flown by so quickly and you are growing up so much. You’re making better sentences in both Hindi and English. The funniest is that you copy the way everyone talks, like when nani says “No” you like copying her and stretching out the no into Noooooooo. Then there are the times when you know just how to push my buttons and do everything mommy asks you not to. Right when mom is about to get angry, you start laughing and hug me and say “showwie”. I love the way you say showwie. It’s the cutest in the world.

Nani bought you a new tea set a few weeks ago because you always ask me if I want a double-double coffee. So, she decided she would get you your very own tea set to make coffee for me in. You and I have enjoyed lots of pretend coffee and tea and have lots of tea parties doing so.

I love watching daddy tease you and you fight him to let you go. I love seeing the two of you spend so much time together and laugh and giggle and play games. It’s amazing seeing the two of you together. He’s so in love with you and you with him. It makes me feel happy seeing both of you laugh and smile so much.

This month hasn’t been quite exciting. I guess, most months aren’t. Life is going as it should be and we are living as we should be. Sometimes, little things happen here and there that stir the routine. But then things get back on track and we move along. That’s mainly how this month has been as well.

You spent a couple of days last weekend at your grandparent’s house, mommy needed some rest since she hadn’t slept properly all week. Your grandparents enjoy having you over. You and nanu spend so much time doing mischievous things and teasing nani. They love you dearly and every time you come back home, they feel lonely without you. They always tell me that their home feels empty without your giggles. So, I’m shipping you over to their place this weekend too. They’ll enjoy their time with you and you always love being there as well. Plus, having nani and nanu take care of you, I’ll get to do my spring cleaning and seriously tidy up our home.

Anyway, sweetheart, know that mommy and daddy love you dearly. We enjoy seeing you grow and are blessed to have such an amazing little angel in our lives. Kisses!
