Surrounded By Love And Awesomeness

Aurora had her official first day out with us! We went for her vaccination yesterday. I was very apprehensive about our first time out. What about diaper changing, and breast feeding, and what if she cries the house down. What if hubby and I quarrel??

Turns out it all went well. Takashimaya has a very good nursing area for moms and babies. They have a few private cubicles for moms to breastfeed their babies in peace while daddies can go shopping on their own for a while. They also have changing tables. Aurora did a poop during lunch so I sent hubby to change her. The moms there were a little taken aback that a guy was changing his daughter instead of the mom. Oh well. Hubby works all day and comes home late. Why shouldn’t he take the opportunity to be with his daughter when he can? He walked her around and pushed her around in her stroller while mommy went shopping. šŸ™‚

Some father and daughter tummy time. šŸ™‚

Poor hubby was so sad when Aurora cried her lungs out while getting her vaccinations. I guess fathers grow really soft-hearted when it comes to their daughters. Even the meanest toughest of guys will feel pain when they see their baby girls get hurt. Hubby may be big and tall and seem fierce and loud and joke around at times. But I know inside he’s a real softy. šŸ™‚ Your secret is safe with me, Ah Nao.

The past month and a half has been a journey. I have had good days, bad days. grumpy days, angry days, tiring days, and trying days. There are times where the thoughts in my head disappoint me, mock me, and test me. But at the end of the day, I am ever so grateful for all the love and support I have had.

Mom took really good care of me with her lovely confinement food. It’s not healthy to eat them regularly now, and I must admit I’m going to miss them. They are just so delicious!

Hubby is constantly reassuring me about my looks and about being a mother. I officially have my first mother’s day gift last month!

How thoughtful he was that he even sent my mom a bouquet of beautiful blue flowers. I forgot to take a picture though. I’m not really a picture taker. My dad and sis are the photographers in the family.

Speaking of which, Sis is here! She’s specially come to see her niece! How sweet is that? I told her it was alright and that she didn’t have to. It is tiring to travel 18 hours in the span of 4 days but she insisted. And anyway we love her company! Look what she brought back from down under!

Gifts from Godma Sim! Goodness. Godma seriously is spoiling Aurora. But all her gits are so thoughtful. My heart just turns jello thinking about it.

This is just a preview, of course. Da yi, da yi zhang and uncle meka all sent their gifts over too. Sis even brought gifts for mom and dad!

I have always wanted a gramophone! But it is too expensive an interest to keep up with. When I get my own place I’m gonna get one. It is just amazing. That is her father’s day gift to our dad. Since we know she is to come over this weekend, we decide to celebrate father’s day tomorrow, a week late.

I’ll update again next week with all the rest of the photos! Oh shoot! I didn’t take a picture of our first trip out together! I’ll have to take one when Aurora takes her first walk (in the stroller) with our furkid.


Sometimes I do wonder if I’m not showing enough love and appreciation to my parents and hubby. At times I let my moodiness get the better of me. Uncle Meka told me to look in the mirror and tell myself every morning that I am awesome. Haha. Just to lift my mood. Who knows. It’s better to spread laughter than my regular bouts of negativity. Let’s give it a try. šŸ˜›
