And so my life as a mother of two is finally here.
Today on the eleventh day since the baby was born and my girl just turned three, I could not feel more bless,happy,content and grateful for what the Almighty granted us. Syukur alhamdullilah.
I am more relaxed now, as compared to last week where everything went so fast and I kinda lost my breath to just sit back and relax. Thank goodness for supportive husband, ever loving and patient mother and most definately great set of good listener friends, for without them I think I might not be as strong as I can be.
I am still learning to adapt having to juggle two kids, a baby and a toddler. And truthfully, I am more tired to handle Mia as compare to her baby brother. Good thing the husband and I didn’t expect her to get along right away with her brother. She was happy to finally get to see Mikail real life, but got easily jealous on the things baby Mike received gifts from our fellow friends and family. New onesies are hers! new booties are hers! even the cabrio seat she claimed is hers and cried to be put in there when we wanted to place baby Mike instead. Yes, end up Mia ‘won’ and seat in there the whole time on our journey back home. I was frustrated at first, but soon realised Mia must have felt so much more as the attention is no more on her and her alone. We both agreed not to scold her during this phase, in fact just let her be and true enough, she did calm herself down after throwing her tantrum and jealousy to her brother.
Of course there are ups and downs, but most times I try to stay positive. Although the inner part of me can’t deny feeling helpless as I’m not capable to accomodate her needs and demands, makes me a little sad. A friend told me to take one steps at a time. She’s right. I really should. For all I know, I might even miss this phase! hah!
Baby Mike on the other hand has been such an angel! (hope I don’t speak too soon!touchwood!touchwood!). He can even sleep while Ma gave him a bath! Totally amaze me. A day before we got discharge, he has a slight jaundice. A follow up checkup w the paed, it has subside and we couldn’t be more thankful. Boobfeeding has been great too so far.Let’s hope my journey w BF will last longer this time round.
