Welcome Home, Noë Soemardjan!


...After a few days of occupying a tiny space in Thomson's nursery, Noë has now taken control of the house... (no, I am not the one in control anymore)

Below is a picture of him in his cozy cot at about 2:00 pm on Friday, 18 March 2005. *Cot courtesy of Mas Judhi Prasetyo)

When I looked at Noë sleeping so peacefully in his room, it reminded of this passage:

Your children are not your children.
They are the sons and daughters of Life's longing for itself.
They come through you but not from you, And though they are with you, yet they belong not to you.
You may give them your love but not your thoughts.
For they have their own thoughts.
You may house their bodies but not their souls, For their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow, which you cannot visit, not even in your dreams.
You may strive to be like them, but seek not to make them like you.
For life goes not backward nor tarries with yesterday.
You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth.
The archer sees the mark upon the path of the infinite, and He bends you with His might that His arrows may go swift and far.
Let your bending in the archer's hand be for gladness; For even as he loves the arrow that flies, so He loves also the bow that is stable.

-by Kahlil Gibran-

Beautiful, isn't it?

In fact, I took a picture of Rani entitled Halfway to Miracle, which, for me, signifies women's "omnipotence" in the Universe.

Very well... from this point onward, I will let Rani continue reporting the progress as we need to reorganize the house and monitor new inventory at home.

Until then.

May your presence in this world be an outstanding one, just like the way your parents are.

And blessed be the days ahead when love just surrounds you.

Welcome to the world, dear :)

becoming a father is not only about having more responsibility and taking care of the newborn. it's about a change of your history as a human being. enjoy the exhausting yet exciting nights with wet diapers and milking. you'll learn that cry is a song of nature.
