Basti.

Rolf Sebastian R. Punongbayan.

A sight to behold.

To tell you the truth, I'm ashamed to admit this now, when I found out that you exist, deep in the recesses of my heart, I resented you, because I knew, once you come out, your dad will never or seldom be available for the long talks, overnight inumans and until-morning gimmicks we have always had.

But looking at you now, all I feel is love... affection... wonder.

You have just sealed a lifetime of friendship and kinship between your father and I. You were loved from the time you were conceived, and now you are one of us, breathing the same air and hearing the same [house] music (hehe), you will be loved as you will never believe to be. Tita Ninang will always be here for you. I love you, with all my heart.
And speaking of hearts...

Don’t break too many hearts, you hear me?

Welcome to our world.

It's not perfect, and you will see, hear, feel a lot of things you shouldn't have to. You will cry. You will bleed. But I assure you, there will be people, just like me, who will wipe your tears away, who will make you laugh until your tummy hurts, and who will love you the way you should be loved ------- completely.

cool! i became a tita-ninang last june, too! and my nephew/grandson is adorable. like your basti.

plus, i'm loving his name (i don't know why my kuya decided to mess up with the spelling of derek. he had to put in c's and whathaveyou. weird). i'm jealous now. i've always wanted to have a son and then name him "sebastian".

@cupcake: Beautiful name 'noh? I like the name 'Sebastian' too, but naunahan nako ni Raffy. Leche. But I'll think of something really groovy for my future son.

I feel this way for all of my inaanaks/nephews/nieces. It's such a joy to be with kids especially with my nephews and niece. I feel so carefree yet responsible. That's when I'm truly, really happy. Total bliss. =)
