My fellow comrade – Mdm Tan – came visiting last week with the her family and boy – Yuan Hao. Our families shared a story with many similarities and thus it felt like a big reunion when we “reunite” again. This time round, the setting is different. Instead of lying down and talking across our hospital beds; we were sitting at our dinning table, sharing baby stories and carrying our “trophies” victoriously. 🙂 Both our sons are growing healthily and had came a long way from their low birth weights.
It was definitely a happy sight; one that we were hoping to see ever since our encounter at KKH some 7 to 8 months back! Mdm Tan was so sweet and excited that she bought 2 new identical rompers for our boys. Photo-taking is definitely a must for this “historical and special” day. Poor boys – Hao and Xi En – were so sleepy but we still changed them into the rompers and embarked on our photo taking session.
Some moments of the day:
Xi En on the left and Hao on the right (getting restless)
Hao dozing off.. come on turn your head to the center
why are you forcing me to take a photo?! Wahhhha!!!!!!!!!
Hao is now on the left and Xi En is on the right. Not much help though! haa.. 🙂
Xi En: Hao, don't cry already. So loud - must cover my ears. Hao: Whaaa!! I don't want! Whaaa!!
Xi En: Now that's a good boy, Hao. 🙂 Hao: Hee.. as long as I have my pacificer, you can do whatever you want. 😉
Finally - one good shot of the boys holding hands!
Ok. That's enough. We wanna sleep!
We also had some group photos:
the mummies ("swapping" sons)
the mummies with the "right" sons now. 🙂
One group photo to end the day
Indeed it was good to see Mdm Tan and her family/son again. It was really a nostalgic feeling; recalling how we braved the complications together; sharing stories of how many blood tests we both have to do per week, how many scans, how many ctg readings, how high are our amniotic fluid,which doctors are better and etc etc etc… Not forgetting how we shared durians in an attempt to increase our babies’ weight too! God is good to us both! 🙂
