Laughing baby

Babies.... They are such magnificient beings created by God. No matter how stressed and tired you are, they bring you the joy and gives you the medicine for the sadness. They are what I call the "antibiotic" solution after a weary day.

When I was much, much younger, I used to frown on parents with babies who cry, poo, puke, makes a fuss, scream etc. Then when I got older, I couldn't imagine how people can have babies living with them, draining out all the energy from their daddies and mummies. To me, babies are always so so so cute. Well, "nice to play with" according to most of my single friends, but "not to take care of". Then, when I got pregnant, I knew my carefree lifestyle is over. Caring for a baby takes lots and lots of time and effort (not to mention the money). I knew that there's lots of responsibilities, there will be the lack of sleep and the adjustment of my lifestyle to suit a new comer to the family. BUT...... I didn't expect more than that than what I had imagined and expected. It took more than that to be a mother!! Well, time is the factor that brings you through the phase day by day and by God's grace, I'm still taking a day at a time, absorbing all the baby vibes around me. Though the thick and thin, I know that I'll pull through....

Here's one of the many many many best moments I've ever had in my WHOLE life....


Eryn (4 months) laughing at the sound that daddy is making.

yea...I love the sound of them laughing and giggling! I too used to frown at crying babies.I remember the time I attended mass with a friend of mine in the UK...and there was a family with 2 kids sitting in front of us. The kids were toddlers and couldn't stop mucking around.....and i remembered telling my friend that if they were my kids..they'd surely get it from me...hahahaha..now I can't imagine having those thoughts!!!

Egghead; more like being a "slave driver" but in the positive sense. :-) What about "paternal instinct"? wanna hear on that too lah.

Jefferene; kids will always be "monsters" pre or post pregnant. But these "monsters" are the one that make them the angels! haha

Dinah; I have a friend who used to say that she'll whack her kid upside down if she ever have one. Now, she's a mother of two and she's one of the most loving mother I've ever seen.

I really cannot stand baby's cries. When Destinee was a bb and when she cried non stop, I cried with her *blushing*. I just didn't know what to do - really stressed.

But as days past and I got used to her cries - come to think about it (bb cried, mommy oso cried ... eeee, malunya), I laughed to myself .

She's such a darling now. Can talk, sing, jump, dance, read, imitate, complain ... and blah, blah, blah. Now I can kekeke.
