In the first few months of her life, I wondered whether my baby loved me and if she knew I was her mother.
And then one day, as I was leaving the room, letting her in the care of my family, she cried because she wanted me. When I got back, a few minutes later, she crawled towards me as if her life depended on it, wrapped her arms around my ankle, and made sounds expressing she wanted me. I melted and felt so empowered. It made me feel that I was doing something right.
Now that we can interact more, she doesn’t cease to amaze on the many ways she chooses to express her love to me.
It may sound silly to say that my heart is happy, that my baby loves me but eh!
