  • Motherhood is a joyful experience, but it can also be difficult. For Andi Eigenmann, her journey as a second-time mom has not been easy, but she chooses to embrace every moment — whether easy or difficult — wholeheartedly.

    In her latest Instagram post, the mom of two shared a photograph of her second daughter, Keliana Alohi or Lilo, sitting on a couch. Andi started her post by expressing her amazement over her daughter’s new milestone. “Look at Lilo already sitting up by herself in a big couch and being very present [at] our hang out!” she wrote.

    Andi then talked about the different struggles she has been encountering — from feeling like her kids are growing too fast to dealing with postpartum depression — and how she chooses to deal with them.

    “This is exactly the day I was talking about when I had just given birth — I told myself that the day would come when we would hope time would suddenly go by slowly because of how fast they are growing,” she shared. “So I made sure [to] take in and embrace every moment (easy or hard), with this little one being so tiny and so precious!”

    Last year, Andi revealed that one reason why she wanted to return quickly to Siargao Island after giving birth to Lilo is that she believed it would help her cope with her postpartum depression.

    She mentioned this in her new post, writing, “Going through postpartum depression early on was tough, but a positive mindset really helped me through it. At times when I’d break into tears and feel so tired, I would also often tell myself that it’s no secret that motherhood would be this difficult, people say that all the time.”

    The phrase of encouragement Andi included in her post is sure to strengthen countless other moms who deal with similar struggles. She wrote, “But I am built for this, and I’d get through this, and I did! Because being a mother means learning with strengths you never knew you had and dealing with fears you never knew existed — another thing people say all the time.”
