6 more days to go…

Aliya Levy

My almost 3 year old – Aliya Levy  or as I call her “Angel Face”

Aliya means “exalted, high, and sublime” which translate to “The one who is held in high regard”. That is the blessing we want God to bestow on her everytime someone says her name. Insha – Allah

I have come a long way since my first post about being a new mom: New Mommy Chronicles

I cannot believe that my baby is going to be 3 years old. She brings me so much joy and her laugh is infectious when I tickle her toes and her tummy. For someone who was afraid to become a mom, I have learned to adapt with every month as my child has grown up so fast. It is indeed the highest honour for me. God entrusted me with one of his angels and I’ve named her Aliya, which means “The one who is held in high regard”.

We had such a funny moment with her last night. I had to share this:

That moment when Aliya Levy walks to our room at night for the third time (and counting )… She gets into our bed. We tell her that it’s sleepy time and she confidently says “Daddy carrot Aliya” and Aslam Levy replies… No baby, say “Daddy carry Aliya to her room” and he repeats “Now say carry”?  With a bored stare at her dad, Aliya replies with the most assurance …”No, Carrot”… 

One week before she turns 3 and she refuses to be wrong. I couldn’t help but had a good giggle when her dad carried her to her room. 

So my little girl can give you impression that she runs the show. But her dad kindly reminded me of this quote:

Sheryl-Sandberg-with-quote

So here’s a thumbs up for my little girl with leadership skills. Even though the Lord knows I cannot wait for the tantrums to pass. I’m looking forward to her birthday in less than 1 week. Whoo hoo!

Ps. To all my family… No I will NOT have another baby so that Aliya can have a friend. I honestly don’t think tantrums stop once a brother or sister arrives. I love you all, but the answer is no. I am happy to wait a few more years. (Smiling right now)

Sincerely Sue

Mommy Songs

by Debbie Wilson – De Soto, Missouri, USA

 

I never imagined
that stuffed animals
would fill my heart
with such delight!

That I would sing
silly songs in the car
and smile,
thinking of her.

Or that my arms
would ever be wrapped
around such a perfect
Miracle!

…That her breaths
would wipe away my tension,
and her smile
would fill my soul
with such peace.

She is my life,
the Center of my Hope
and the inspiration
which guides my dreams.

(And this is equally true
for Daddies, too)
