Dear Baby

Dear Baby,

¬† ¬† ¬†Have you ever wondered what it’s¬†like to open your eyes for the first time; to be a part of this world? You never think twice about¬†what you have to go through.
¬† ¬† ¬†You just open your eyes to people leaning over you. They say how adorable you are as you’re being held by a woman. She stares into your eyes with a smile on her face and a tear rolling down her cheek. She’s the one who gave birth to you.
¬† ¬† ¬†You’re just an infant at the time; innocent to your surroundings. You go from being born to saying your first word. You go from crawling, to walking, and getting your first tooth.
¬† ¬† ¬†Everything happens so fast, and¬†no one prepares you for the trials and tribulations of this life. They don’t even give you a heads up. It kind of just happens…
Sincerely,
You at age 14.
