Poet turns one...


My baby girl turned one today, it has gone so fast. I have been emotional about it and it has caught me by surprise. She is the most incredible little being, her smile lights up  the sky that sometimes i wonder if she is the sun. That i can not share with you her smile yet, hurts my heart. Yet i remain hopeful.

Poet, as i mentioned has such an incredible smile and shows it off all the time. She's also i believe to be  a little comedian always doing silly things and looking around to see if i am noticing. You can hear her and i have belly laughs several times a day. She loves Sophie so very much and all the others too but the conversations she has with sophie are epic. Poet is a foodie and loves everything i love, today for her birthday i made potato and fennel soup and she could not have enough. Poet, loves books i mean loves them and she sits quietly and "reads to herself" or to me.  She loves music classical especially the violin and piano, she also likes the tibethian throat singers and she doesn't mind her mama's tone deaf singing, which is good because i sing to her all the time. Poet is wonderful when it comes to chores, either she is out there with me or she stands at the window like you see above waving and smiling and sometimes, okay every time i walk back towards the house my breath is taken away as i stare at the scene before me.

Poet clearly says many things but what she says most of all these days is hi daddy, in fact she asks to call daddy several times a day. I am here writing you all this and there is a lump in my throat that is forming- one day , oh please one day make it so that i can share everything about her with you- for to know Poet is one of the luckiest privileges i promise…..

* i also want to apologize, i have not been able to write to my dear friends, or pick up the phone, it is not only because i am spending all my time with Poet but it is because it is such an emotional time and i just do not know how to express what we are going through, even my poor mum get yes and no answers to emails. This kind of block has never happen before, but know you are often on my mind dear friend. (s)

Everyone's story unfolds at a their own pace...I only want to read hers, and yours, when the time is right.

Be in touch with every moment with her...it seems like in a blink they grow up.

I hope you all are doing well and staying snuggly warm up there on the hill. I know I just said I would wait for you, but I do miss when you post...you know I love how you write. ♥

Nadia, Happy Birthday to Poet. The cake is perfect! Just know that your true friends and loved ones are patient and steadfast in their support with or without feedback. This is a perfect time to be focused on what is most important. I feel blessed to have met you and spent time in your company because now when I read your posts I hear your gentle voice in the words I read and I can picture the joy and emotion on your face as you share your journey. Life is good. Stay strong. Hugs from little ones and life giving.

Laura said...

Keeping my fingers crossed! I hope Poet will be all yours soon! Can't wait to hear the story of her coming to you.

I am so happy you get to experience the immense love a mom has for her children. It changes you for ever.

I don't think you could ever possibly know what a beautiful experience reading your blog is. My own blogs and commitment to blogging seem to come and go with the wind, but your blog over the years has been a place for me to come and feel fed at a deep soul level, whether your posts are joyful or melancholy. You could post only once a year and it would be just as joyful for me to rediscover your enchanted way of seeing. Thank you.

Blessings upon blessings to baby Poet! I felt her birthday was near and had no idea it sat right next to my own on the calendar (this makes me happy)! Love the photos of her and majestic, sweet Sophie and love the image of her waving from the window as her beloved mama does chores. I am filled with so much joy for you, tears are flowing. How sweet it is…

Dawn said...

It is good to know that there are people like you in the world Nadia. And it is good to know that there is a place like The Hill.

God bless you and that precious little cherub! May this new year be full of blessings for you, and may everything fall into place just as you're hoping. Have faith!
Please be cautious about those windows, as it seems the trim on the bottom is missing and maybe the glass could be pushed out. I'm sorry - I'm a 74 year old worrier!! That's why I love your spunk!!!
