1st Month

Happy 1st month, baby love! I still can't help but thank the Lord every time I look at you. You are a bundle of joy, not just to me but to a lot of people around you. 

Daddy and I celebrated this day for you. I baked oreo cheesecake and Daddy cooked pancit. :) Hope you'll taste them through Mommy's milk. hihi.

And here are the five best blessings we thank about you today;
- you're not sick anymore
- new born screening results are all good
- you've already got two chins :D
- you're learning to sleep long at night
- you're enjoying mommy's milk and so you're healthy!

You are loved, Kaitlin.

Kaitlin's Smile

My baby is sick.:( Last night, she woke up evey hour crying. I tried to breastfeed her, change her diaper, bottlefeed her with the milk I pumped, sing lullaby, pray over her...but still she was inconsolable. At 5 o'clock in the morning, I found myself crying because I didn't know what to do.

At around 7am, Totskie woke me up to show me Kaitlin's right eye-it was swollen. This solved the mystery of our almost sleepless night that we just had but it also broke my heart even more. So we went to the hospital to have her checked by the pedia. 

Her pedia was on leave but thank heavens, my pedia was on duty. She gave medications (+unspoken comfort that everything's going to be ok) then we were sent home.

Kaitlin still cried aloud several times after that and slept most of the time. After dinner, she woke up without crying. After our feeding session, she smiled. Whoa! That gesture took away 90% of my worries. I'm sure tomorrow I'll be seeing more smiles from my baby love.
