How true is this. Indeed, I’ve learnt so much this past 1.5 years of motherhood ( and much more as I track on this motherhood journey). A lot of times I thought I will be the one parenting JJ but instead he is the one that taught me how to love selflessly, be happy because it’s a good day, giggle out loud because you are really happy, be patient with every thing you do and you will be rewarded with a mega watt smile from the kiddo.
Here’s JJ trying to enjoy life watching tv , lying down while waiting for mummy to come home from work.
It’s a rainy and wet morning today. JJ had a very good and sound sleep despite all the thunder and lightening. Something that is really rare given the fact that some nights he will fuss from 4 to 5 am. What I enjoy most about babies sleeping is to watch them sleep. I spent 15 minutes last night watching JJ sleep, stroking his hair and back, caressing his soft cheeks and giving him a few kisses. It made me realise how life is made wonderful with just few of his giggles and sleep watching moments. Definitely will savour all their company while I can as babies grow up all these will soon out grow too.
I saw post online and thought it is really meaningful as with babies there will never be a moment of loneliness.
I’m into my 16 weeks now, the nausea did not get any better sometimes worse.

And this week JJ started to walk more and each time he does his catwalk ( or rather drunken-baby-walk) down the hallway he will give himself a round of applause. This is really highlight of my long hard day. Watching JJ learning new skills and enjoying them.
And looking back at his 3 months old photo then I realized how far this little fella has come. A lot of times I really forgot how small JJ was when he was still a baby. But I’m starting to enjoy his toddler days and soon I’m going to have best of both worlds. Endless baby cuteness and a super hyper active toddler.
