I've arrived

Dear all,

After giving mum about 38 weeks of bitter sweet hell, I have finally made my debut!
I have puffy (chinese) eyes and fat (red) lips. Weighing close to 3kgs, I was born in the wee hours of the morning on the 26th November.

Mum is in slight pain right now - but she still smiles at me when I latch hungrily on her mammary glands. Dad went home to rest. I'm just enjoying the attention from everyone here in the hospital...I've got a few presents and beautiful flowers too from friends and family of mum and dad - I heard mum complaining "why does she get all the cool stuff..how about the mummy?" Saw my nenek giving a light slap on mum's shoulder after that.

I've been told that I look more like my father- but I have mummy's lips. I've also heard them saying that "I'm such a good daughter" cause I hardly cry. In truth, I am just too sleepy.

After hearing everyone say I'm such a good child, I cried twice last night - just to test the water. Mum was obviously not impressed and dad looked frantic. Mum said she'll let me sleep with her just this time. Next time, she's going to let me cry all night alone. I better not do that again.

I hear mum groaning about her heavy chest. . . something is engorged. It sounds like a bad monster and apparently, only I can make the monster go away.

I'm being picked up now. Feeling quite hungry after poo-ing twice today.

Just to let you know that I have arrived, mum is smiling and dad is a happy camper.

More from us soon,

Love,

Daniella Isobel Iking-Chong

  20. Congratulations Daphne & hubby!
    Am sure little Isobel is as lovely as her mummy..I have been following your blog for a while, esp after finding out that you were pregnant and only 2 weeks apart from me (I am in my 37th week now)..I am also expecting a baby girl which coincidentally will be called Isabel too (but different spelling) :)We have always liked the names Rayyan (if it's a boy) and Isabel for a girl..was a nice coincident that you and I love the same name:)

    All the best in starting out motherhood..it is my first too and am getting quite nervous. Take care of yourself during the confinement dear.
