First Love


My eldest brother, Henry, is the father of two full-grown young ladies. He has always been very affectionate of his daughters and they both think he is the best father in the world.

When Sam came to our family, he instinctively formed a special bond with my daughter. I often see them playing together and he never gets tired of her childish antics. In fact, his main highlight of the day is to tell me an anecdote about my own daughter, which is so heart-warming.

I thought of creating this LO to celebrate their special bond and to show him how much I appreciate his sincere affection for my daughter.


Journaling Reads: If you ask me: Mama, who is my first love? Then I would have to say: It is your Aku’ (you sweetly pronounce it as A-du’). He comes by several times daily just to see you and you are always delighted to see him. He plays with you and introduces you to a lot of new things like the bubbles, plastic balloon, his cellular phone and other fun stuff. You are always digging into his shirt pocket and he always allows you to crumple every piece of note you find in it. You are both enamored with each other and you never seem to get tired of his company. He thinks you are the smartest baby in the world and you think the world of him. His affection for you is immeasurable and I do believe you love him the same.
