baby no more … :(
I could hardly believe I have a one year old toddler already. Time flies so fast! She’s no longer the helpless little girl who used to be all dependent on me and who wanted to be carried all the time by no less than of course, me, her mommy! Instead she now wouldn’t want to be carried. She wants to walk on her own even if she would fall over and over.
Funny how I used to want her to be this big now when she was still so little and now that she is, I wish she could still be the little helpless baby she used to be. There’s really no holding her back now. She wants to explore on her own. Her journey to independence begins and is unfolding right before my very eyes. And I’m just really really glad that I witness all of these changes in her and not missing out any moments. Moments that I as a mom will forever treasure in my heart.
Sophia now ….
…walks with ease
…gives me a flying kiss when I’m about to go out of the room
…rubs her tummy when asked to
…points her nose when asked to
…knows where her ears are
…knows where her hair is
…points her eyes when asked to
…makes a funny pa cute when you say smile
…widely opens her mouth when asked where her mouth is
…imitates the sound of a monkey, tiger and a dog
…has her own version of baby bop’s hop
…makes beautiful eyes when asked to
…knows how to hug
…knows the aircon and points it when asked
…recognizes animals and things in books and magazines
…dances when she hears a nice music
…waves when you say hi
…stomps her feet when you ask her to
…funnily raises her foot when asked where her foot is
…and a whole lot more!!!
…but best of all, kisses mommy and daddy in the lips over and over again when we say KISS!
Ahh, the joys of motherhood or parenthood for that matter is simply incomparable. The best experience ever.
