My Dear Son,
About 4 days away from 22 months old, Alhamdulilah.
It’s been a while. Much has happened. Almost a month ago we left Ras Tanura in Saudi Arabia, Alhamdulilah. We are now back in Cape Town, staying with Daadi, Phoepoe and Phoepi, and of course Mama, Papa and the rest are not far away. You love being around all the family.
Alhamdulilah, you are growing and learning well, not growing so much in weight, but your height is going up, up, up. You can now reach most things – not such a good thing for me having to run after you all the time! But, Alhamdulilah. You’re constantly climbing tables, chairs… scratching out cupboards…
On Tuesday you started swimming lessons. You love being in the water with your Dad, but scream when the teacher puts you on your back. I guess it’s because you can’t see us and you have little control.
You’re still our little social butterfly, smiling and talking to everyone in sight, expecting nothing but a happy smile and a friendly handshake from the world. May Allah SWT protect your friendly, innocent heart, Ameen.
