1 month old Kevin

At 4 weeks, he weighs 5.2kg, drinks 150ml and sleeps 3-4hrs. In the evening, he will fuss for 4hrs before he gives up & sleeps !

I am still waiting for my fussy little man to settle into a routine, hopefully before my mom leaves in Aug. Right now, I have no sense of time. I am always rushing and I dont have enough sleep !

Its really not easy taking care of 3 children (even with my mom's help!) but I cannot imagine my life without them =)

8 days old Kevin

Kev is such an angel. He will always be a reminder for me to stay strong and positive. When I found out I was expecting, I knew it wouldn't be an easy 9 months. I was constantly worried about how the little one was doing inside. I felt guilty I wasnt resting enough or eating as well as I should be.

Now when I look at him, I know things happened for a reason.

Hes 8 days old today and hardly wakes up unless its time for his milk.

Jie jie is so proud of him !

Pregnancy week 39 - Birthstory

Our precious son, Kevin Low Jun Xuan, arrived on the 18th April 2011.

18th April @ 4.30am, felt mild contractions. Wanted to wait for more regular contractions but decided to check into the hospital.

6am - reached hospital. Midwife did a CTG.

7am - 5cm dilated.

9am - Gynae broke my water bag and immediately dilated from 7cm to 9cm.

Baby was delivered before 10am, without any pain relief or epidural. He weighed 3.67kg.

I am truly blessed with a smooth 39 weeks pregnancy and a fast labour. My husband has been very supportive and loving. I love my kids, they are so understanding.

Pregnancy week 38

Baby is engaged already and comfortably baking inside me. I doubt he will be out anytime soon. Kayla and Kieran were induced at 40weeks 2 days so my feeling is, I will have to go through another round of painful induction ! My mom arrived in Sydney last Wednesday - FINALLY !! I really need a good rest until I deliver. My back, hips and left rib hurts due to too much walking and bending. Plus Richard has been very very busy with work so mom really came at the right time ! Thank God :)

Pregnancy week 32

Doc said my baby is very low lying now. I need to rest more & walk less for the next 6 weeks. Its really difficult to manage alone during the day on weekdays. Since school term started in Feb, kids go to bed by 730pm and wake up at 7am everyday. So I get to relax, watch tv & sleep early every night too.

Cant wait for my mom to come on the 30th March. Her presence makes a big difference !

Kayla's 1st PE day

Every Thursday, sports uniform (including white sports shoes & hat) is to be worn.

This morning I was overwhelmed with emotions when I saw my little girl walking to the school compound, looking lost and insecure, searching for familiar faces. My heart broke. I know she will be alright because she has always been very independent & calm for her age, but I just couldnt help feeling sad.

Kayla goes to Kindy

We are so proud of her !

Kieran, 4yrs 3mths

Kieran will be a kor kor in 12 weeks time. He has progressed so much over the last 6months. Definately more vocal now. He loves his big sister and always look out & look up to her. Hes not ready to continue pre-school in Feb, without his sister who will be in Kindy. Most of his little friends will be in Kindy this year too, so it will be a whole new experience for him.

I am sure he will be fine.
