I can still remember the moment when I kissed my baby’s forehead for the first time…that moment is beyond my capacity to express. I have no words to explain. To me it seems like yesterday, though it is has been 10 months.My girl has now just turned one.The moment she came out was really a rebirth to me, but this time as a ‘MOTHER’. The birth of my girl gave birth to the mother in me. Today my life is no more my own, my heart no more beats inside me. It beats in my little angel. Now, she is my world. My everything is upon her two tiny gorgeous hands. Now, I sleep only after I confirm that she is sound asleep. I sing lullabies to her even though I am bad at singing. Though my voice is not sweet, I realize from my girl’s eyes that she is enjoying it, and that is enough for me.
l love being a mom because of the hugs, the giggles, and the grins. She amazes me everyday with her new words. Nothing else can produce the happiness that motherhood allows. I could not imagine going through my life without that spectrum of emotion. It is the most extreme level of being alive for me. I think there are two stages to my life – one is before being a mother, and the other is as a mother. The first stage for me was a real struggle – living for myself, trying to find things that make me happy, but with no gains. But in the second stage, I am really living life not only for me, but also for my husband and my daughter. Every day, I am trying to make my girl happier and I’m trying to improve as a mother for my little one. Now, I am really enjoying the present. I can see the value of this life now. Of course, my life has become meaningful now. Now, I am dreaming not just for myself. I hope that I can be a wonderful example for my baby, in shaping her personality and I am trying my best for that.
