Creating My Own Family

Mom and Dad just visited sis and I always look forward to their return. Mostly because they always come with gifts! Sis told me she bought her niece many adorable clothes and I just couldn’t wait to get my hands on it!

I’m thinking of packing the onesie with cloud prints one to the hospital. 🙂

With this handy picture app sis introduced me, I managed to take a better picture of all the things Godma Sim bought for Baby Tarn too.

I am loving those tights! They seldom sell tights here, maybe because we live in a country that is 33 degrees all year round. But babies just look so adorable in them!

Da Yi Zhang also got his niece some interactive books.

Not that Baby Tarn gets to interact with them just yet. So in the mean time, our furkid is keeping an eye on them! haha

We aren’t short on soft toys too.

The Scooby came together with the books from Da Yi Zhang and it talks! Oh well, I am certainly feeling very blessed indeed. 🙂


Pregnancy wise, it is getting harder for me to move. Not that it hasn’t already been a chore. Just that my belly is getting heavier and my pelvic area hurts. I tire easily and I am cranky and snappy with people. Not all the time, though. But it’s bad enough to make me want to avoid things and situations that I know will tick me off. Sometimes, I just can’t help it and words just slip right out of my mouth that I immediately regret saying. That’s why I choose to keep quiet and smile. Hubby says it can come off as rude. But I think that’s better than my saying something that I don’t want to be saying. If I can, I’d retreat into my room and cuddle with the furkid.

Hubby has also been away for work for a while. It can be difficult without a support. But when I read about husbands who have to leave their families for months for work, I suddenly feel silly. But no matter how many days hubby is away, I am sure to miss him.


I am really excited about getting stuff for Baby Tarn, from bed to stroller to car seats. But mom isn’t too thrilled. She is expecting guests next week and now all the baby stuff we bought has to be cramped into the study to make way for the guests. I have to admit that I was quite upset. I am due in less than a month and am hardly in any state to be host to guests. Plus I don’t think I should delay buying the baby stuff any longer. Most importantly, it is suppose to be a process that is happy and exciting.

But it is mom and dad’s home after all and they are allowed to have whatever guests they want. I guess deep down I just feel sad that they aren’t as hyped up about it as I am. It is also making me more eager to get my own place so I don’t impose on my parents. It’s sad that I feel that I am imposing on them though…

Nevertheless, hubby says he’ll be free to go buy the outstanding stuff we need for the baby this weekend. And I am not letting anything dampen my spirits. 🙂 I’ve never really accomplished much in my life. And now that I am creating a human being and creating my own family, I couldn’t feel more grateful and just simply and undoubtedly happy, for the lack of a better word. 🙂
