My nursing journey thus far

I still remember the first time I went into the nursing room and looked for the clear tray that held you ever since you were born. Marked by my room number, it meant you belonged to me. It felt incredible to have you handed to me by the nurse, seeing your tiny sleeping face and not believing the fact that I had given birth to someone so perfect.

I cherish every moment I spend nursing my baby because I don't know when it will be the last time. I've heard of other babies who has pushed mom away after a couple months for no reason at all, so you really never know. People say breastfeeding is bonding with baby to another level... I can tell you it's true.

I have a list of nursing must-haves to share with you. They are the things I needed since the beginning of this magical nursing journey, and have helped me make the ride smooth and enjoyable, not to mention it increasing my endurance and perseverance in the whole process.

As of today, I have been breastfeeding for 150 days, which is almost 5 months! 
Baby Klay and I are still enjoying each other's company every few hours... (:

newborn essentials

I've received a lot of feedback on instagram about how I make motherhood look like a breeze
(which is soooo kind, thank you!),
but reality is, Ive been growing up with Klayklay;
The mother in me was born when he was, back on the 7th of July,
and from there, I started learning, every second of the day,
about my baby, about being a mother, about parenthood.

I feel like so much has changed in me, yet nothing has.
It's such a complicated feeling to explain, and you can't possibly understand,
unless you've been through it.
Unless you have become a mother yourself.

All in all, it makes me so proud to say that I am Klay's mother,
no matter how much responsibility that entails,
how many sleepless nights I've had and will be experiencing,
how much personal time I don't have anymore...

It's still the best thing I've ever done.

But there are so many things that have helped me with this difficult but rewarding first 3 mowith a newborn, and here are a few that I found made life much easier for us as new parents.

Styling awkward-length hair

I cut my hair short a couple months ago while I was still pregnant with Klay because I knew it would be awhile before I would have time to go to the Salon to get my hair done again.
Little did I know, it grew out so quickly! And now I am in the awkward phase of wanting-to-grow-out-my-hair-but-it-takes-time -_- I miss being able to do my messy top knots so much!

Our Birth Story: Klay Cheung

So it's been 28 days, and I finally feel like I am ready to share our birth story with you all,
before it becomes a bitter sweet vivid memory.

on our way to the hospital, about 30 mins after my water broke.
