Dear Daughter

I have carried you in my womb for nine months, and for nine months we were one. You knew how mommy felt, you knew when mommy was hungry, and you knew when mommy needed to take a break.

This I know to be true because with each hunger pang I ignore, I receive a gentle kick from you. Your way of reminding mommy to eat because, you yourself, was hungry to. I will be lying if I didn’t say that I miss your gentle kicks and backflips inside my tummy. Sometimes I still catch myself gently touching my tummy as if wondering if you miss being inside mommy too (a bit creepy I know but I know I am not alone).

Now you are almost 8 months old. You are a very beautiful girl, I am not just saying this because I am your mommy but because other people tell me and your daddy so.

You are a good girl, greeting mommy always with a smile when we wake up in the morning and smiling to your lolo and lola when they greet you in the morning. You also love it when ninong monkey and ha play with you. I know that you also wait up for your ninong monkey before sleeping, because you wait until he drops by after work.

You are more than what your dad and I wished for, you turned out to be an angel that we sometimes think we don’t deserve. Love, you are everything that we have ever wished for. You turned our house to a home, somewhere I long to go home to everyday after work. A place where I feel needed and loved, because of you.

You have reached a lot of milestones already and mommy was there for each one. For this my love, mommy will forever grateful. Even though I am working, you always seemed to wait for mommy before you achieve your milestones.

This makes working easier for me because I know that you will always want mommy to see your small and big achievements. I am always the proud mommy posting each photo I was able to snap, but love, these weren’t just taken for sharing, but for trying to seal that milestone forever because I know that someday, someday you will be a big girl and you may not need mommy as much as you need me right now.

My love, it has been 7 wonderful months that you have made mommy and daddy happy. You came into our lives and turned it upside down. You made us better people, always looking out for what is best for you. We don’t care what type of sacrifices we have to make just to make you happy. You are the best thing that ever happened to us.

I am sorry mommy is becoming an emotional mess, it’s just because each time you reach for me when I get home reminds me that I am a mommy first and a career woman second. Each time you smile at mommy you remind me that you don’t need fancy things you only want milky and hugsies from mommy. Each time you cry you remind me that I am and will always be the one you need to make the tears stop from falling because you just want mommy to carry you, sing for you and hug you.

Look ma, I can lift my head up on my own!

Look ma, I can lift my head up on my own!

Remember, love, no matter what happens mommy will always be here for you. Whatever you want to do, mommy will be here to support you, but I will tell you when you need to stop, take a breather and think. I will love you forever, forever you are in mommy’s heart.

Love,

Mommy
