Why Keanu? WHY???

I am currently, as I’m typing this post, watching The Day The Earth Stood Still…

Why la? Why? What’s wrong with acting in normal movies? Like a love story or something…I’d love to see Keanu Reeves in a love story. With emotions and facial expressions… That’d be nice… Other than Johnny Depp, I love Keanu Reeves. I think he’s gorgeous…

Post-baby update

I totally forgot how tiring and busy it is to have a small(er) person at home…

A little update on the new routine.

  • Baby K loves playing ‘big sister’ with Baby A. She seems to be posessive of the smaller girl. Gets upset if somebody other than us carrying her sister…
  • Baby K’s vocab and personality changes in a blink of an eye! Seriously!!! She’s talking A LOT and she’s more approachable nowadays. Did I mention the talking???
  • We went for a follow up with the paed today for both girls. Baby K finally hits 10kg (Aniq is 2 months and he’s already at 6kg…). Baby A is 3.33kg.
  • Baby A feeds super slowly. She falls asleep in the midst of feeding and we have to feed her again after 30mins. Very lengthy process…. ZZZZZzzzzz….
  • I get good sleep but insufficient due to the frequent feeding sessions.
  • Baby K now sleeps on her own bed in the room next door with her bibik because Baby A not only wakes up frequently for feeding, she also cries for no reason ( I think she mengigau…) once in a while. On the first noght home, I was so tired, didn’t even realized Baby A was crying. Baby K woke me up, ‘Mommy! Baby &%^%&^^$@*) —> I dunno her language’… So disebabkan kesian tidur dia terkacau, terpaksalah aku seperatekan diri dengan Baby K…
  • Me? I’m doing fine. Other than a little bit of pain here and there, I’m adapting well. I try to spend time with both girls together which usually ends up with us lepaking in front of the TV watching Dibo The Gift Dragon the whole day…

Ok… I’d like to take this opportunity to thank everyone for all the well wishes and prayers throughout the pregancy up till the delivery. Your kindness will be paid in your February pay (for those in Amex… hehehehehhehe…)! And to those who came to visit, thank you and come again…

Introducing Ameena Asyari Bt Abu Hassan Asyari

And so, I gave birth last nite at 10.27pm….

The pain started in the morning but since I was too excited about inducing the baby on Tuesday (3rd Feb), after it was agreed by the doktor, I couldn’t care less about a little pain…

I was also looking forward to go for my cousin’s kenduri doa selamat that evening at 4pm. The pain came regularly but I thought I ate something wrong because I had cirit birit since morning. And so we went to my uncle’s place, the pain was 30 minutes apart. I went to my uncle’s basement and played 3 songs on their new wii drum set (Beat It, Hotel California, and One Way Or Another), which I ROCKED by the way…. At around 5.30pm, I ate satay, roti arab, kuey teow goreng, ABC… The pain was more frequent and stronger but I ignored it. At almost 7pm, I told Abu that I think we have to go the hospital already. So we sent the rest of the family home, took the hospital bag, and selamba-ly walking slowly to the labor ward.

When we arrived at the labor ward, I was immediately ushered to the delivery suite. I told the nurse that the pain was like 15 minutes apart but when she checked, it was 5 minutes apart and my vah-jay-jay was already 6cm dilated. She scolded and gave a loooong lecture about how I should have come earlier… blahblahlblahblah…. She was right… I should’ve come earlier. I arrived at the hospital at 8pm, epidural doktor came at almost 9pm, it takes about 30 – 50 minutes for the epidural to kick in, and I gave birth at 10.27pm… IT WAS PAINFUL!!!! Again, my advise to those who share my phobia towards labor pain, go early, take the epidural and relax.

Ameena was out after 3 sets of 3 times pushing. She came out normally with no vacuum or forceps involved. THANK GOD! And today, both of us were given the bill of health and got discharged before noon… We didn’t even spend 24 hours in the hospital! Woohoo!!!!!!!!!!! Pencapaian terbaik setakat ini untuk kami… Heh…

So here are some pictures for all of you… Introducing my second girl; Ameena…
