We were absolutely thrilled when I got pregnant as we had been married slightly more than a year then and were ready to expand the family.

IMG_4032

I was a happy and active pregnant woman. However, our baby decided that it’s time to come out when he’s only 32 weeks in gestation, making him an 8 week premature baby.

He weighed only 1.96kg at birth, his lightest was 1.7kg when he lost some water weight. It was hard to watch him being so frail but we were determined to keep positive.

Liam (we named him after Liam Neeson hahaha) was admitted to Neonatal Intensive Care Unit right after birth for 12 days, and then was transferred to the hospital’s nursery for 11 days more. After spending 23 days at the hospital, our baby was allowed to come home. I was so happy I cried.

He is now a healthy, bouncy 6.4kg baby at 4 months old. Gareth and I are super proud of his progress.

We have never thought that parenthood could be so incredibly fulfilling. It’s exceeded all our expectations. We are so happy! Other than our blogs (Kim & Gareth) and instagram (Kim & Gareth) accounts, you can see more of Liam’s updates on dayre.me/kimberlycun or dayre.me/shaolintiger

P1040337The Wifey and I during our trip to Sydney. She was already pregnant then.

Both The Wifey and I initially planned to try for a baby after our vacation to HK in March to celebrate our first wedding anniversary, but things don’t always go as planned. She got pregnant during our trip to Sydney in February instead. When I found out that she was pregnant, I was so overjoyed and pretty excited because with the addition of the baby, it means it’s no longer just The Wifey and me  The Wifey on the other hand went crazy shopping for baby stuffs that our utility room is packed full with clothes, toys and whatnot to decorate the nursery room.

12345Preggy Wifey at 32 weeks

I was told by many to prepare for The Wifey’s pregnancy cravings coz usually pregnant women’s won’t be cravings for normal food (chips, ice cream, milo, biscuits) but instead food which can be difficult to find (fried egg with ice cream, Nutella dipped lychee). I went “OMG”! But thank goodness The Wifey had no weird cravings and only occasionally craves potato wedges or french fries which is easily available. Not only that, she had no morning sickness throughout her pregnancy.

23454The very first photo I took of our little bundle of joy after delivery.

The Wifey was in labour for 5 hours and I was just beside her offering what support I can. Aiden was born on 27th October 2014 via natural birth. He weighs 2.65 kg and 48 cm at length. When I carry him in my arms, I think he’s the most beautiful thing on the planet.

Aiden 4 One week young Aiden.

Before Aiden was born, I remembered telling The Wifey numerous times not to spoil him by carrying him too much coz it’ll make life difficult for us when he get used to all the carrying but seriously it’s easier said than done. Just looking at him already melts my heart. Also, initially we both agreed that I will be the bad cop while she will be the angel because of her soft heart. But I think I’ll definitely give in and give him everything he wants. Haha

Aiden 5

Aiden smiling happily

Aiden 6Chilling with my little boy on bed. I guess both of us love the camera. Hehe

I’m looking forward to more father-son bonding activities with Aiden (watch football, car roadshows and etc) when he’s bigger. But now he actually sticks more to The Wifey – mommy’s boy.

My husband, Marcus and I didn’t actually plan to have a baby until the end of the year 2014 but it was fated that our son, Mika was conceived during Chinese New Year. It was definitely a gift from God and maybe perhaps a wish come true for my parents as they were wishing for a grandchild during Chinese New Year’s “ Lou Sang ”. Also, that is how we got the name Mika, as it means ‘Gift from God’. When I first found out I was pregnant, I was shocked. Happy but scared at the same time as I didn’t know the slightest thing about babies. I then found myself busy researching about pregnancy on the internet and asking my friends whom have already been through pregnancy.

SONY DSC

Throughout my first trimester, it was pretty hard as I was battling with morning sickness until at one point, I was nearly admitted to the hospital. The first doctor I’ve met to do a check up was a GP and she thought I was having twins because of the severe morning sickness I had. That made me even more so nervous but at the end, it was only one baby. My second trimester was the highlight period of my pregnancy because I was feeling very good, eating well and everyone said I was glowing plus my mood was really good most of the time. Along came third trimester together with body aches and stretch marks! It was then I felt very nervous and anxious as our lives were about to change. We sometimes still can’t believe that we were having a baby!

SONY DSC

Mika was born on October 21st 2014 via natural birth. At first the doctor opted for Induction because Mika was too big for me. I was craving for sweet stuff and ate a lot of ice cream, cakes, and fruits which is why Mika’s weight suddenly shoots up. So we had to make an appointment one week before my due date for Induction. But thank God that when I checked in to the hospital, the nurse told me that I was already dilated 3 to 4 cm so we had to abort the Induction process and wait for the contractions to become stronger before they pushed me into the labour room. Although the baby was still big for me, I never asked for epidural and all the nurses were shocked and so proud of me. Mika was born 3.52kg and 50 cm at length. And yes, the contractions pains were the worst pain in my entire life and even the doctor said that my pain threshold was high. But you will forget about all the pain after you see your baby on your arms.

SONY DSC

Coping with motherhood at the first week was hard for me as my stomach muscle tore during labour because of Mika’s weight. It was hard nursing him because I only can move at certain positions but I was very lucky to have my family to help me with everything. I am now getting better and able to nurse Mika more smoothly as he is exclusively breastfed only. Although there were many sleepless nights, but when you see your baby’s smile, it is all worth while.

Dilahirkan di dalam keluarga yang adik beradik lelaki lebih ramai daripada perempuan (5 lelaki 2 perempuan), diri ini excited tak ingat apabila doktor mengesahkan yang anak kedua Abang Nara dan isteri adalah ‘baby girl’. 2,3 doktor juga kitoarang pergi check. Akhirnya apabila dilahirkan, memang Abang Nara sujud syukur atas kurniaan Ilahi. Alhamdulillah lengkap sepasang lelaki dan perempuan. Abang Nara dan wife sepakat memberikannya nama Arissa yang bermaksud bijaksana.

IMG_0396

Anak perempuan dan anak lelaki memang banyak bezanya. Hehehe. Anak lelaki memang senang sikit persediaannya. Sempoi je. Baju pun tak beli banyak. Bukan sebab taknak beli, tapi memang pilihan agak terhad. Akan tetapi anak perempuan ini lain macam sikit. Sampai rambang mata dibuatnya. Gaun, t shirt, headband, sepit rambut, stokin, skirt, sarung tangan dan macam-macam lagilah. Senang cerita kalau masuk kedai tue rasa macam tak nak keluar selagi tak beli satu kedai. Hehehe.

IMG_0634

Di saat Abang Nara menulis, Arissa sudah berusia 5 bulan. Alhamdulillah sihat membesar (berat terlebih sikit). Comel pun comel di pandangan kami. Baby girl ini lain macam sikit dia punya relationship dengan emak. Mula-mula Arissa memang langsung taknak kat ayah dia. Asal Abang Nara dukung je mesti menangis. Orang lain pegang pun tak boleh. Only mom can touch. Kalau si Aariz (anak sulung Abang Nara) dulu, tak kisah sesiapa pegang asalkan dirinya didukung. Yang si Arissa nie mesti kena bau badan emak dia juga. Kalau tak mesti menangis. Hehehe.

IMG_0700

Satu lagi beza antara baby boy dan baby girl ini gambar yang kami tangkap. Kalau si Aariz lantaklah tengah buat apa pun kita main snap je gambar. Namun Arissa ini si emaknya akan pakaikan baju cantik-cantik, letak headband yang kena dengan baju serta posingkan di background yang cantik untuk menyerlahkan lagi kecomelan sebelum ambil gambar. Lepas tue satu baju dekat 50 gambar jugak yang disnap oleh si emaknya. Arissa pulak jenis suka tersenyum. Memang best lah jawapnya. Heheh.

IMG_0444

Nak cerita lebih panjang pun Arissa baru je berusia 5 bulan. Nanti dah 1 tahun ke atas pasti akan lebih banyak ragam. Doakanlah agar Arissa dan Aariz membesar dengan sihat dan sempurna seperti anak-anak anda. Terima kasih kerana sudi membaca. Arissa babap korang semua. Hehehe
