Dear Nazhan Alfarisi,
It’s 18th November 2011. You are 1 year old now. This has been a wonderful journey indeed.
No words can describe just how much mama and abi love you. You have brought us so much joy, even before you were born. I can still vividly remember the day you were born a year ago. You were such a cutie pie every one who sees you couldn’t help falling in love with you. You were so alert and agile even the Doctor was surprised to see you eyeing your surrounding with wide open eyes. From the day onwards, you make our days become more meaningful. You were an active baby and you always cheer us up with your giggles and laughter. At two and a half month you can already lying on your tummy and not too long after that you have started to crawl. You are full with determination that you begun walking at 9 months and three weeks. We hope that you continue to be a person with strong willpower and determination in everything that you do. We will always be there to guide you and support your dreams (as long as it doesn’t involve being a singer or an actor). We will listen, give guidance and do what’s necessary to make you a good man and a good servant of Allah. When it comes to our religion, we will be strict with you but we will explain to you of why we should follow Al-Quran and Sunnah. You were named after a great warrior of Islam, Salman Al-farisi and therefore we hope you’ll be as courageous and brilliant as he was.
Life has change since you arrived, but in a good way of course. There were no longer 6 hours of sleeping for us especially for mama as I’m still breastfeed you. Nap time hardly exist in mama’s world. Breastfeeding was never an easy thing. There’s a whole different story on that chapter. Money was tight now that we have more responsibilities but the sacrifices couldn’t measure up to the bliss of having you in our life. We’ve decided long ago that we want to teach you to appreciate the value of money and we don’t want to spoil you with lavish things. Remember to be a humble and responsible man, son. No matter how high you reach up for the sky, always keep your feet firmly grounded. I hope that one day when you grow up you will read this letter
MAMA & ABI
