About Baby In The Belly

Sunday, May 29, 2016

As my belly is growing bigger (I'm halfway to my last trimester, by the way!), and since I can feel my baby's movement constantly now, there are so many thoughts on being a momma-to-be and of course about my future child.

Not until a year has passed, we just signed our legal marriage certificate and exchanged our wedding vows in front of God. Months later, we thank God that He seems trusted us enough to have this baby. Though this baby hasn't born yet, we want to let him know that he always being loved and he has been such a blessing to us. I wonder if he knows every time his dad showers him with a bunch of kisses, or when we talk to him about things that he probably won't understand.

We had once talked about our expectations when our baby grows up. Like I want this baby to be generous and kind like his daddy, and be brave like his mommy. This baby came with no manual. We obviously don't have any idea how to treat him well. But we also know that we can't shape his characters to what we wanted. He should become what he should become. Because I believe God has knitted himself so perfectly and made him just right. 

Now we just can't wait to hold you in our arms, baby! However, take your time till the due date. Stay strong and please keep kicking, because it's the only thing that assured me that you feel very fine. We love you!

P.S. I found this article written by a hot momma, mother to Brooklyn, Cruz, Harper and Romeo. I ain't nearly like VB, but as a mother herself, she has admitted that how special to become a mom and put precious values on her children.

P.P.S. A photo bonus!

 You may not have any idea about this photo scan (neither do I, the doctor tried to explain while she was scanning my belly, but it turns out to a photo that we couldn't understand). But everytime we got home with this photo scan, we feel more than grateful (:

P.P.P.S. Did I use "he" or "him" to mention my baby a lot? That because we are expecting a baby boy!

Music Love: Jessica Jung (feat. Fabolous) - Fly

Wednesday, May 25, 2016

Since several years ago, I am reminded constantly (by closest people, books I read, songs I listen to) about reaching out your dreams. Have you ever felt that your dreams seem so close yet so far away? For me, I think that because our fears are too big and we let those fears take over our passion to achive those dreams. The easiest thing to do is just spread out our "wings" (our inner strengths) and fly high to touch our dreams.

Anyway, this song contains of poweful meanings, while Jessica delivered it in her soft and beautiful voice. I hope you love this song as I do. 

Inside the invisible fog
I have to find myself
The hope of a small light 
You'll find with only your imagination 

When I reach out towards a higher place
It feels like I can almost touch it 
Am I closer to the days I longed for 
I draw them on the sky 

Just spread your wings 

Follow the sound of your beating heart to the end 
Close your eyes and spread out your dreams 
You're a hero you can fly 

A world that you've never seen before 
WIll open before you 
Fly above the clouds 
Cause your wings are made to fly 

Pengalaman Pertama di Big Bad Wolf Books Jakarta 2016

Hari Minggu tanggal 8 Mei yang lalu, akhirnya aku pergi ke giant book fair Big Bad Wolf (BBW) di ICE, BSD Tangerang. HOREEE!

Seminggu sebelum pergi, pas tahu ada event ini udah kebelet pergi. Apa daya tinggalnya di Bogor, jauhhhh banget ke BSD. Nggak sampe hati rasanya minta suami yang bukan pecinta buku nemenin sejauh itu. Berusaha direlakan aja (padahal hati miris hiks hiks). 

Suatu hari pas main ke Youthmanual, ada artikel liputan tentang BBW. Sumpah bikin mupeng lagi. Terus baca blog orang yang udah ke sana makin pengen. Belom lagi ada temen yang ngomporin harus banget ke sana. Jauh tapi nggak akan nyesel. Akhirnya memberanikan diri nanya suami boleh pergi apa nggak, dan suami pun dengan pasrahnya menjawab, "iya boleh".


So these are some thoughts from my first experience at BBW:
