I’m thanking Gerber for sponsoring this post and for inspiring me to share those motherhood moments that makes it all worth it!
I can’t remember when was the last time I got that so-called well-rested sleep. Well, actually I’m a night bird and I WAS used to staying up all night, but things weren’t the same since the day I become a mom. It’s not just the sleepless nights, because motherhood is more than that, right?
Motherhood is not easy. But you know what? I become a stronger person than I can ever imagine. It unlocked the stronger side of me in a most special way. It may be a stressful hard work sometimes, but always a very sweet 24/7 role.
I can still remember how happy and emotional I am when I woke up in the hospital after giving birth through C-section, hearing my baby’s voice as he cried out loud. I cried and smile, he’s so beautiful and my heart beats so fast.. It washes all the hard times and pain that I’ve been through. He’s all worth it!
Being a mom has pushed me to do things I thought I can’t do. There were those days when I have to write lots of different articles as a freelance writer in just 4 consecutive days, so I can get my payment right away because I need money that bad to help with the hospital bills when my baby was hospitalized for a week.
I shouldn’t be working that hard given that I just gave birth, but I did.. I did it for my baby. He was just 5 days old then, my poor baby spent his 5th to 12th day life outside of the hospital. That’s so heartbreaking! Everytime I look at him, I can’t stop myself from crying because seeing him in pain feels like it’s tearing me into pieces.
But look at him now, and where did the time go? He’s now a happy and healthy baby who always brightens up my days. Often times when he’s in the mood, he’s giving me sweet smiles when he woke up in the morning and it makes me forget that I didn’t get enough sleep last night.
His giggles and laughter are lifting up my mood, especially when we’re playing peek-a-boo because he love this game so much!

One time in the middle of the night while I was writing articles sitting on our bed, he woke up and I heard him say, “ma-ma”. That was music to my ears, wow! I love it more and more now that he’s starting to speak.
Though any of his teeth doesn’t come out yet, he already loves to eat solid foods as much as he loves milk. In my eyes, he’s too cute while trying to chew things inside his mouth even he has no teeth! As a mother, I always love to give him foods that would be healthy for him. Lucky that my little bub is not a picky one.
Lately, he’s starting to push himself up and try to make his way to stand up. I can’t wait to see him make his first big step to stand up and walk alone without support.
Yes, motherhood can be stressful and a very challenging role. But because my son means the world to me, everything is all worth it!
And now let me hear your own moment that makes it all worth it! Share it in the comments below!
