Friday lunch @ Lab Kitchen

2nd August 2019

Dear Chibi,

My in-laws invited me out for lunch today at Lab Kitchen in Wentworth Point. It was my first time out with P-chan without Hubby, so I needed to know how to put bub in the car seat & assemble the pram. It end up being a pretty stress-free day since bub was on his best behaviour and did not fuss at all. He sat in his pram quietly watching us eat for over an hour. He was so perfect :3 It also helps that Mary came over to pick us up so I didn’t have to drive.

I ordered the poke bowl and taro latte. It was really yummy! Sylvia also brought back some kyoho grape flavored KitKat from her recent Japan trip :D Overall, it was a pretty good day.

Babies day out

30th July 2019

Dear Chibi,

There’s something comforting about hanging out with other mummies and their babies. Even better when they’re friends you’ve had since High School :)

Lunch @ Chow Bella Cafe, Lidcombe

‘Just the 3 of us’

29th July 2019

Dear Chibi,

With Hubby’s camera in hand, we spent an afternoon at a nearby park for some family time outdoors. Hubby captured so many great shots it was hard to select just a few to share… I’m going to love looking back at these photos one day :) P-chan is the cutest little munchkin :3

Somps’ Baby Shower

28th July 2019

Dear Chibi,

It didn’t seem like that long ago when Somps shared her pregnancy news with me. We were having ramen at Lidcombe Centre, where we spent the day buying party supplies for my Baby Shower and searching for that perfect moon balloon. Yet here we are, 30 weeks and celebrating the pending arrival of her baby boy!

This was also the first time I’ve seen the cofa crew since giving birth to P-chan, so it was nice catching up and introducing him :) They described him as being “pretty chilled”. He has been a pretty good boy :}

3 Months of Motherhood

25th July 2019

Dear Chibi,

P-chan at 3 months / 13 weeks :D

Baby P-chan is 3 months today :D No longer a newborn, he’s fitting snugly in a size 000 and already rolling from tummy to back. I’m so proud of the way he’s been lifting his head lately. He’s been working hard! He’s also more and more giggly, making cute happy noises at 4am in the morning. He’s really chatty sometimes. I find myself watching and smiling back, even though I should be getting some sleep ^^”.

It feels surreal looking back at early photos.. he’s changed and grown so much without us realising. His facial features are more defined and he’s put on a little more weight (though we can’t decide who he looks like more).

He’s been such a good boy that I’ve almost forgotten how tough those early weeks were.

First Shopping Trip

17th June 2019

Oh yes, there’s gonna be a looooot of ‘firsts’ for him!

Dear Chibi,

Yesterday was a wet gloomy Sunday, but it didn’t put a damp on our first shopping trip since giving birth :D (Hubby’s been doing grocery on his own) It’s been so long since I’ve been out… I realised I haven’t been doing any exercise or getting any fresh air. It was a really nice change of environment (who knew I’d be excited about Bankstown? lol) :) Pushing a pram around is kinda fun ^.^ I get to see his cute little baby face snoozing away so comfortably…. I wonder what he’s dreaming about?

He fell asleep in his pram so quickly on his own. Why can’t he be like this at home as well? ^^” When it’s just the two of us, I’m spending hours trying to settle him to sleep. Maybe one day… One can hope, right? XD

Little P-chan, you’re growing up so quickly. Please stay small for longer :3

Lunch at Helen’s ~ P-chan’s first outing

15th June 2019

Dear Chibi,

P-chan had his first outing today at 7 weeks (+ 2 days) :D Helen & Fong organised lunch at their place and boy was it a full house. Suddenly there’s so many babies! Chloe has grown so much, and we finally got to meet Baby Mikayla. So many cuties (Ari included) ^.^!

Ohhh this looks good!! mmmm!

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

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
