simon.the.baby - the 1st two weeks 4

today is the birthday (two weeks old) of my baby girl. There ‘re so many new (and bad) things happened last two week … ….

First, I was so glad that I  decided to take a long vacation from April to June — the look of the baby kept changing everyday, you just can’t afford not seeing her for just one day. And there ‘re so many "FIRST TIME" for me — first time to bath the baby (it was real exciting and challenging !!! ), to change the diaper, to feed the baby, to hold her in my arms.  The baby just needs so much attention from you, apart from sleeping, she will start crying if you don’t hold her in your arms or leave her alone.

I also started to understand the love of a mother, there is so much sacrifice (and pain) for Xandra the few days after the delivery. On day eight, there was a serious bleeding of her, and she had to be admitted to the hospital to have an operation immediately. It was very frightening when I saw all the blood on the bed, the floor, inside the ward. Thanks God, Xandra recovered very very well after the operation and she is very very well.

And I ‘d like to say thank you to your love, your blessings and all the messages on this blog, they are real support for me. And also thanks the beautiful and lovely gifts from Ruby, Stefanie and Veronica, the clothes are so lovely and baby loves them a lot.

Here are a few photos I ‘d love to share with you.

    she got so many expressions! i love the odyssey photo, and also like the crazy crying photo, such a good idea to put all the big head photos together, see her expressions during crying.  the little princess enjoy every moment in the world… try her best to discover new things from sleeping, playing, bathing, looking, listening, crying…
    thousands bisous *c*

    Just noticed Xandra had rebleeding after giving birth. Are u OK now? It’s so nice to have Simon to change the diapers and feed the baby. You can take a rest and recover ASAP. The baby will be much more difficult to handle when they get older & older.
    Bless your family. Simon, enjoy your 1st Father’s Day.
