Francine sleeping

The other day when I woke up from my nap, Francine was on the bed beside me. Facing me, she stroked my cheek and said, “Mahal ‘ta Mommy (I love you Mommy)..” My heart just about melted at the unexpected sweetness.

Other times like when I get home from work, she’d say “[n]amiss Mommy” then embrace me. She also responds with a sweet “Lab-yoo!” when I tell her I love her, as well as when she’s on video call with her Daddy. I am honestly amazed that at her tender age of less than two, she can already grasp the concept of love. My heart is overflowing with a fierce pride and love for my daughter. We are so blessed to have her. 🙂
