My Heart


In a blink of an eye, she's already 10 months old. She's no longer helpless. She can now roll over, sit up, stand up, crawl, scoot, climb and ask for things. It took a while for it to sink in that in a few weeks time she'll be celebrating her first birthday with her family and friends. 

Today we visited my in-laws and it was such a lovely sight to see BabyLim interact with her grandparents. She's really growing up. No longer clinging on to me for dear life, no longer afraid of being away from me (even if only for a short while, it's still a feat), no longer tearing up when I pass her over. Gone are the signs of that little baby and in its place a beautiful confident soon to be toddler. Confident in all sense and I beam in pride when I see her unafraid of trying new things and getting out of her comfort zone. She's amazing, she's my baby.

I see her and I am comforted - that's where 10 months of my life went. Invested into her. She's the result of my sacrifices, the time I spent on her, all my love poured into this tiny person and all my prayers answered. (Hubbycat too!)  I see her and I know she knows she's loved. That's the best thing a daughter can give her mother. 

I don't regret the choices I've made and the sacrifices I've given. I see her and I see me - all of me. She's my heart and I won't have it any other way. Everyday I learn how to be a parent, everyday I get a glimpse of what God's heart is all about. Everyday I see BabyLim, Everyday I understand what it means to love like God. Everyday I let my heart go knowing that it is bringing BabyLim closer to me. It's beautiful.
