Dear kinan: happy birthday, baby

dear kinan,
am posting this note so you can read this later in the future,

about how the previous year has been to our lives.
as i know you won't have memories about this moment.

to be honest, you were...
well, the sweetest coincidence i've ever had in my life.
yes. having you were on our list.
but not so soon.
waktu itu, kira kira sebulan setelah kita pulang dari ibadah umrah,
i had a strong feeling that i was pregnant with you.
rasanya sih badan ngga terlalu berubah, ngga mabok juga...
tapi nggak tau kenapa, kepala rasanya terngiang ngiang the idea that i was pregnant.
then i took the pregnancy test.
and yes, it was a positive.

the pregnancy time with you was easy breezy. hassle free.
i was more concern about us, financially.
but hey, Allah Maha Baik surely has something up for us.
so there goes my worry. alhamdulilah...
just a month before you were born, you dad got a promotion.
then there you were. born as a 2,5 kg girl with lots of hair.
we named that little girl: shafa kinantya lasarati.

shafa as in the bukit shafa.
lucu lucuannya sih, kita abis ke bukit shafa, right before i was pregnant with you.

kinantya.
diambil dari kinanti dalam bahasa sunda, yang makanya lagu.
after having mas arka yang namanya sungguh berapi api dan bersemangat,
we agreed that you, my dear, akan punya nama yang menyejukkan hati.
akan bikin senang siapapun yang dekat dengan kamu.
yet we twisted kinanti into kinantya.

larasati.
kurang lebih berarti lurus hatinya, ngga gampang tergoda sama yang engga engga.
ini sebenernya obsesi masa muda juga, i always like the name larasati.

this year, is your very first birthday.
like any paretns would do, we wish you never ending bliss in life.
later in life you'll find the good, the bad and the ugly.
fear not, insya allah we'll guide you through.
and like any mother would do, i'll end this post with hugs and kisses.
i love you.
