This blog has taken time though because we have been extremely busy and kinda lost track of time.
So yeah! I have been a father for 13 months today! And seeing as Ciiru turned ONE, I will just share the ONE thing that I will always remember from this past year … UNCONDITIONAL LOVE. Being a parent is not easy; It’s one of the hardest things you’ll ever do but in exchange it teaches you the meaning of unconditional love. You learn to accept your children the way we accept trees— with gratitude, because they are a blessing—but do not have expectations or desires. You don’t expect trees to change, you love them as they are!

And so my birthday message for Ciiru on her 1st Birthday:
“Nothing you become will disappoint me; I have no preconception that I’d like to see you be or do. I have no desire to forsee you, only to discover you. You can’t disappoint me” your loving papa!!

I have learnt that when your little baby stares at you like they often do, they are actually working hard to memorize your face. She doesn’t understand anything else about the world, but she knows you’re important. Your baby thinks about you even when you’re not around.
