Happy Birthday POR POR!!

28 September 2006. It’s my mother’s 68th birthday and here she is with all her grandchildren.

On a separate note, I really admire my mother’s patience. Nat has been taking very little milk since he was 3 months old and my mother has been trying all sorts of ideas/tricks to get him to drink enough for his age.

And it is not easy now that we have started him on solids. He is also not eating much. Sigh….. really do not know what to do.

I really hope that I can be as patient as my mum…….. something that I need to learn from her. S.

Anyway the 3 sisters pretended to drop by our place at about 8 at night. All of the sudden, a cake appeared out of no where. Boy was Por Por surprised!!!

Who is the star?

19 September 2006.

A working day... but daddy and mummy took leave to spend the actual birthday with you Nat.

We brought you and wai por to Crystal Jade (T2, Changi Airport) for Dim Sum. But guess who stole the limelight?

Nat's First Birthday Party

16 September 2006 (Saturday). Nathaniel Isaac Lim's actual day is the 19th September. But we celebrated earlier on the weekend. Having so many friends, we had to limit the numbers! So if you are reading this blog entry and asking yourself why you were not invited???? Hey, we had no choice........ the place could only take that many people!!! We will make it up to you!! :P

Anyway, here are some photos of the day! Enjoy.....

The yellow dream team.

Reflections of a new mom

19 September 2006. How time flies, it has been a year. In fact, it has been 1 year and 9 months (including the pregnancy period)!
It has been a amazing, exciting, tiring, rewarding, and worrying period.

From his first smile, his first turn (over), his first crawl, his first word and now looking forward to his first walk. Everyday is still a new learning experience for me, so many things to explore and learn for a one year old mother. My responsibilities and priorities have changed. I am really grateful that I have my mum who is helping me look after Nat while Ben and I are at work. Am also thankful to Ben who has been ever so supporting during my pregnancy period and bearing with all my nonsense and demands. And of course, God’s grace to my family. Am really counting my blessings! :)

I guess the following will sum up how I feel and hope as a mother!

1 year ago on a peaceful night
A cute little baby boy pushed his way to this beautiful world with all his might
As the smiling mum held him tight
She whispered to him “I will try my best to raise you right”
And she hopes one day he will tell her “Mum, I have proven you right!”
