I had this emotion surge where suddenly this unconditional love flowed in my veins.. and first word I said to her was “Hi, Zahraa”.. (well, I like the name Zahraa and the daddy likes Adriana..and Auni..i cant remember it ..hihi.. that is how we got her name). She looked at me like she knew who I was.. and the rest is history.
At first, our relationship seemed one-sided, I (well, and the daddy too!) gave her all our attention every time she cries, sleeps and changing her nappies.. but towards the one of first month, when that toothless smile, babbles starts to appear, I know our relationship is moving forward.. Now Baby Zahraa is already cooing. She always coos like she wants to tell me something and every time she did that, I know she knows who I am to her and I am important to her. All my exhaustion disappears. It’s all worth it.
I still feel like it was only yesterday I have met her. I believe all mommies out there feels the same way too. It is amazing how God created this bond between mother and child that seems unbreakable.. Keep smiling Baby Zahraa 🙂
