Life is full of surprises. At this juncture of our life, Pandamopi & I am humbled to be blessed with this beautiful experience in this journey of life – becoming daddy and mummy. The birth of baby Isabella is one of the most beautiful moments in life that we would not forget in this life. It is a miracle and a blessing. We thank God for this little beautiful life given to us.
Labour pain was a long-suffering one – 36 hours or so. Waves of contraction came and go, at increasing frequencies as the interval shortened. Never would I expect that contraction pain could be so unbearable, but the love for our baby enabled me to go for extra miles. Wave after wave of contraction, I know that we get to see baby soon but before that I need to go through this labour of love.
We finally get to see our baby after 36 hours of contraction and 1 hour of active pushing. We would be remembering this magical moment for life. All pain disappeared when we see our beautiful little one as the doctor placed her on my chest. She opens her eyes and blinked gently, trying to figure light for the very first time in her life. No wonder in Spanish, giving birth (dar la luz) literally means “give the light.” Baby sees light the first time when she is born. Such a beautiful moment.
We looked at each other for the first time. Pandamopi and I looked at each other again, overjoyed.
So, we are no longer two but three now. Baby Isabella is joining the bandwagon and we are so looking forward to many exciting moments and adventures ahead!
