Newborn Photoshoot

24th May 2019

Dear Chibi,

Today we received photos from our newborn photoshoot that was taken when P-chan was just 9 days old (or his 10th day if we calculate his birth date as day 1) It’s hard to believe it’s been 3 weeks since. He’s growing up so quickly, and a part of me just wants time to stop :) His tiny days are so precious and limited. I want to love and protect him forever.

It was our first time out since returning from the hospital, and we were surprised how much we needed to prep just to leave the house XD! Luckily, P-chan seems to enjoy the car ride, despite his face looking a bit frowny ^^; Cute, but I’m looking forward to when he starts to smile too, hehe.

P-chan was well behaved and slept through the entire photoshoot. Our photographer Tina was super gentle with him and made sure he was extremely comfortable. I love how the photos turned out! My heart is exploding from all the cuteness <3

Ah, too adorable.. I can’t decide on a favourite. Gotta get these printed out some day :3

Lucas P-chan ~ Our Little Bundle of Joy

18th May 2019

Dear Chibi,

Hubby and I both feel incredibly blessed to be parents to our perfect little boy :)

Born 25th April at 8.10am, our little bub Lucas (affectionately nicknamed Pi), entered this world at 3.14kg :3 He arrived while I was 39 weeks + 1 day pregnant. Today, our little P-chan is 3 weeks & 2 days old.

The days leading up to his arrival were some of the most difficult days Hubby and I have ever endured. I went through 3 days of excruciating back pain labour, followed by 12 hours of established labour. Although delivery didn’t go exactly to plan (I ended up with an emergency cesarean), I know we did our very best. Most importantly, he arrived safe and sound. Despite all that we went through, I would do it all over again in a heartbeat. I love him so much, and will treasure all the moments we have together as a new family of 3.

I’d like to blog more regularly, but with a newborn it’s hard to find free time ^^” I’m struggling to stay awake most of the time, but am trying to take it easy and rest as much as possible. It’s been made a little easier with Hubby by my side.

Parenthood is a lot of hard work, and I know this is just the beginning. Still, without a doubt, giving birth to P-chan and being a mother has been the most incredible experience of my life.

Maternity Photoshoot

2nd April 2019

Dear Chibi,

Being pregnant is a beautiful thing.. and I want to cherish every moment of it. I can hardly remember what it feels like not to be pregnant, with this little one kicking about in my belly :).

With less than a month to go, Hubby and I spent an afternoon at the secluded ‘Secret Garden’, doing what could be our last photo shoot with ‘just the two of us’ :3

Thank you Hubby for these beautiful photos <3

Dear Chibi,

I’m going to be a Mummy :3

I’ve been growing a tiny human over the last several months and in just a couple more weeks, we’re finally going to meet our precious little Babian :3 (Not his actual name..incase you were wondering hehe ;D)

This pregnancy has been quite an experience so far… I’m now almost 35 weeks along. Hubbian and I are both very excited and ready to take on this next chapter of our lives together. (As ready as one can be anyway

Yesterday, we celebrated this special time of our lives with a ‘Sweet Dreams’ themed Baby Shower for his pending arrival :3

Michelle’s Baby Shower

19th February 2019

Dear Chibi,

Mich & Troys Baby Shower

Last Sunday was our dear Michelle’s Baby Shower, a BBQ lunch hosted at her apartment’s spacious rooftop. When we arrived, we were greeted by pretty pink balloons :D

It was our first time coming here and we were rather impressed by all the facilities. Swimming pools? Gym? A library? Music room? View of the bridge?! The list goes on…but an air conditioned room was our best friend on this unexpectedly warm day XD

Sunday Lunch @Alegrias Spanish Tapas

21st January 2019

Dear Chibi,

I missed out on our last catch up due to the cold, so I’m glad I could make it to this one! We chat on Whatsapp all the time, but it’s always great seeing these guys in person (and Baby Chloe :D)

The food at Alegrias Spanish Tapas in Balmain was pretty amazing, very tasty!! We also got 50% off which felt kinda insane considering what we ordered ^.^ I had an all round great time :) Thank you for the awesome company :)

Some pics from the day below:

Sailor Moon S: The Movie Review

3rd January 2019

Dear Chibi,

Sailor Moon S: The Movie finally made it’s way down under to Aussie land last month on Bluray & DVD. Considering Tuxedo Santa makes his debut, it’s kind of fitting for the festive season XD (Though it’s actually summer here! *melts in the heat*)

Sailor Moon S: The Movie Bluray released by Madman

The film is adapted from a side story of the original manga series created by Naoko Takeuchi, The Lover of Princess Kaguya. As a result, it has a very different vibe to the 90’s anime we’re all so used to, as that has deviated quite a bit from the original source. The story focuses on Luna and her relationship with a young astronomer named Kakeru Ozora.

Christmas 2018

26th December 2018

Dear Chibi,

Wishing family & friends a very joyous Christmas! :3

Ah, it’s Boxing Day today. Despite my intent to check out the sales each year, I always end up too lazy and tired the day after. This year was no exception, lol. Here I am, 3pm in the afternoon, still in my PJs. I’m going to use this time to just relax and share some photos from yesterday’s festivities. We had a pretty big day! :D

This year Hubby and I hosted a family Christmas Party at home. It turned out to be an all-day affair starting from noon and ending at midnight :D

Group shot, just missing little Champy who is hidden in the garage :’)
