Happy Birthday Andre!

Today is my son's 6th birthday, How time flies, I still remember 6 years ago when I had my first signs of going into labor, I was excited and nervous at the same time.  I was brought into the labor room, waiting for the big moment to arrive.  But after almost 12 hours of waiting, my labor did not progress and I had to undergo a C-section.  But the moment I saw my little boy, I knew that it was all worth it.  I would often wonder why in the movies the moms would cry after seeing their child for the very first time, now I know why, because I've experienced it. It's a feeling of pure joy and unconditional love.  At that exact moment, I felt protective of my son and only wanted to give him the best.

Andre is speech delayed.  Unlike kids his age, he still struggles to speak and communicate, but he tries his best and he has improved a lot.  I would remember the times when he would get frustrated because he wanted to tell me something, but can't seem to get the words out, he would either act it out or drag me to whatever it is he wanted me to see.  But in-spite of that, he knew he was well loved, because we would verbally tell him we love him, and encourage him whenever he did something good.  I'm proud to say that even until now, he would say "I love you, Mommy" and gives me bear hugs and wet kisses on the cheeks.

Thank you Andre for always making Mommy happy.  You know how to get away with being naughty by flashing your cute smile and saying "I'm sorry".  Thank you for wiping my tears and telling me "It's OK mommy, Andre's here" whenever I have my share of not-so-good days. Thank you for being the sweet kid that you are.  Mommy is a better person because of you.  I love you and Micah so much, and as long Mommy is here, things are going to be just fine.
