G is for Godson
I remember the day he was born. It was an afternoon in September and the night before my aunt had gone to the hospital as it would soon be time to give birth. I was working but couldn’t wait to get off work so I could go meet him. It was there in Baldwin Park at Kaiser that Ronald Christian Reyes entered the world on the 7th day of September in 2008. He came in weighing 6 lbs and 14.6 oz.
I was chosen as one of his many Godmother’s. I will not be an aunt for quiet a few years, nor will I be a mother in the near future. So it was my delight to be a Godmother to Ronald Christian. It wasn’t long before the whole family began calling him Ron Ron., per Filipino tradition of nicknames.
I like to call Ron Ron the Love of My Life. He is the only boy who has my heart. It has been so beautiful watching him grow up and I cannot wait for the rest of the adventures that I will go on Him with, as well. He speaks Tagalog and English, can sing “Hey Jude”, and knows his colors and how to count….
He is continually learning and growing and I cannot believe he’ll be three in September. It feels like just yesterday that we brought him home.
