The Arrival of Ashley Chan

08 Feb 2009, Sunday




My hubby comments last night : " What happened to your blog? It's been idle for the past 4 months. As usual, must be a passing phase for you...."

No, it's not. It's just that I've been enjoying (err...ok, most days enjoy but some days I really want to climb walls) our little arrival. I've not blogged about her at all - not that I dont want to. However, I wanted to spend those precious 3 months with her as much as I can, before getting back to the grind.

Boy oh boy, I knew that it was going to be difficult with 2 children under age 3, but no one prepared me for the tired days and long nights. If I was not tending to aka breast feeding the small one, I'd be spending my time with Aiden. This left little time for me to rest, let alone shower or eat.... The most challenging time was between the second to eight week. Ashley was latching on the me every 1.5-2 hours and just when I had her schedule fugured out, she began to have colic for the next 3 weeks or so. Phew....

Well, it certainly is getting much better now, and our baby Ashley is also sleeping through the night. We lurve her to bits and really is the apple of our eyes. And the clothes....I know everyone's advice about buying too much, but those dresses, skirts, hairbands.....arrrgh! I cant help it!! I'm consolling myself that since this is our second baby, we're not spending on the big ticket items such as bottles, sterilizers, baby cot and other essentials.

I've just gotten back to work last week, so once Ive got my work sorted out, I'll be back with more updates on Ashley and of course Aiden.


Leaving you with Ashley (photo taken Day 20). This beautiful photo was taken by Jasmine & Sue who did a photoshoot of Ashley in December. I'll certainly blog more about this in the next couple of weeks. Thanks Jazz & Sue for leaving us with beautiful pictures of Ashley that we'll cherish for years to come!!!

I know what you mean by not being able to resist all those lovely clothes. But seriously, they grow so fast and most clothes will end up being worn a handful of times only.
