It's been almost two weeks.....
and it feels like a month has pass since the arrival of Eryn. Here she is on one of the rare occassion with her eyes open.
Eryn Lim came into the world with a wimper and a scream on the morning of 31 Aug 2007 at 0210hrs. Weighing in at 3.208kg and a full length of 49cm, She is smaller and lighter than our number one girl, Joy, was born. ...12 years ago!
Yeah you read that right... twelve years between the two sisters!
It occurred to me that when my first girl finishes her 12 years of education I start all over again with Eryn. Gosh!!!!
Here is my sweetheart wifey, Esther, with Eryn. Things' have been hard for her. Eryn is a frantic baby when it comes to breastfeeding. Nursing her has been a painful thing for Esther. To top things off, she getting depress because our family unit is broken up during this time.
I could blame it on my folks or my mum. But I might as well blame in on the moonlight and the midnight. Here's the take on the situation.
Esther and Eryn are at my in-laws where she's carrying out the one month confinement.
Joy who would be sitting for her PSLE (Primary School Leaving Exam*) in three weeks is at my parents' place cos it's near the school.
Me? I've been in between both places the past week. Alternating between both homes at night. Two to three of the days I go back to our own home during the day and pack the place to make room for Eryn.
Now why can't we all be at my dad's place? Cos Mum says she don't know how to look after babies and she the place cannot take in anymore persons.
My mother-in-law on the other hand had open up her home for my entire flock. (Her home is smaller).
Like I said I could blame my folks.... but what's the use....
