I really think Emma looks so much like her dad!!!! Specially her nose :D...At first, I didn't trust what my mom and other people would tell me...DON'T BUY TOO MUCH CLOTHING FOR EMMA because she will outgrow them very fast :D...I guess they're right..already she has outgrew a few of her old outfits, specially her 3 months outfits so I've started dressing her for 6-12 months...I couldn't believe my eyes when this cute little pink outfit from Meiltrine fits her perfectly! It's a mixed feelings of happiness and sadness, happy because she's grown bigger but sad because soon she will outgrow this cute little outfit and many of her other cute outfits!

I'm always amazed how my breast milk has enough ingredients and nutritions to keep her growing each day and actually satisfies her hunger...I've been pumping day in and day out...just like a cow...and thankfully, my milk still overflows...more than enough to feed her in one day :) though I can't wait until she starts eating solids so that I don't have too pump at night!!

I'm very happy that dad had finally made me a bathing table, so I don't have to sit on the floor to bathe her anymore!!! She's getting heavier and if I keep sitting on the floor to bathe her, I know I'll get backache soon enough! :D...She is now longer than her bathtub :D...she used to be so small that we bathed her in this very small "ember" back in Brisbane and now she's longer than the normal sized tub! yay! how time flies, I guess...

emma is growing

Emma is almost 3 months and we've been noticing that nowadays, her long pants always fall under her belly, thus concealing her protruding tummy :D..and so, today we went to ITC Permata to get some new outfits for Emma.

While Francis was away on his business trip yesterday, he gave me a call while Emma was relaxing in her combi chair with her FINGERS in her mouth, so out of my curiosity, I decided to put the phone on Emma's hand (which she held on her little hand) and asked Francis to talk to her on the phone and when Francis started talking, she was listening and cute :)...

I think she's on growth spurt since she's been demanding for more feeds, though the intake might only be 30-50ml but when she's hungry, she could finish 100-150ml and manage to make us very happy with her good drinking habit, we hope she could keep up with the feeding :D

Francis, Myself & Emma

Well, Emma was finally out at 1:37am, born on the 3rd of July at the Royal Brisbane Hospital :D...It was a painful 24 hours labour, with only "not so HAPPY gas" as my choice of pain killer...I've never felt such pain in my life...Nevertheless, after passing 24 hellish hours, the doctor decided to do a C-section, coz Emma just didn't want to go out after 7cm dilation...since the midwife broke my water, (something I'd rather they not do the next time I have a baby) they were afraid she might get distressed and, they prep me for c-section at midnight...once the epidural was was HAVENLY :D and she was out in just a few minutes...She looked bloody and messy :| hahahahahahaha but we're glad she's a healthy 3.64kg baby girl :D...Not even the pain after a c-section could match the labour pain :|...really...all in all..I was GLAD to be out of the hospital, though it took a little longer than I expected, since Emma had a bit of Jaundice and therefore we had to stay over an extra night...

The best thing about the whole thing was...everything was free :D hihihi...something good for being an Australian PR :D..
