Surprises for Mommy

Hello Baby...

Yesterday was a milestone. You finally learned to sit up and do close-open with your tiny little hands. Mommy was in a state of shock she only managed to nudge Daddy and point straight at you. Daddy was laughing really hard.

Today, you did something again for Mommy, here's a post from my multiply site:


As if yesterday's milestones were not enough, Maia did something today that really melted my heart.

I was trying to put her to sleep tonight. We did our usual stuff...roll over the bed (as in all over the bed), shared her favorite story (it was actually her birthing story), butt-patting (she actually likes it better when Daddy does this to her) and lastly, lullaby singing. When she was about to fall asleep, she rolled over to me and laid her head on my feet. I felt she wasn't very comfortable with the position so I slid a pillow underneath her head to cushion it.

And as if to tell me how she appreciated the gesture, she looked straight at me and raised her tiny little hands to caress my face. I was singing her favorite, "twinkle, twinkle little star" at that time...I almost choked on the lyrics. I felt really teary-eyed. I was so touched by her gesture.

I know at 6 months she's not yet capable of understanding emotions but I felt at that moment that she did in fact convey a message of thanks.

At times like this, all the exhaustion and pain just melts away. :)


Yes baby, you always never never ever fail to make Mommy's heart leap.
