A lil' bundle of joy ...


One and a half week ago, we threw a colleague of mine a surprise baby shower.


It was a blast. Good food, adorable gifts, laughters, cheers ... I really like the idea of having showers ... be it bridal or baby ... These events are simply lovely!

A proud mama-to-be then, showing one of her gift we bought her.

The expected due date was March 08, 2006. However, this lil' baby girl was too anxious to learn about the world. So, last Saturday morning, after mama finished her night shift and was on her was to the parking lot picking up her car to head home, her water broke. She could have walk back to the hospital (where we all work) and got some help, only to realize that she wasn't prepared to be admitted to the hospital as of yet as she didn't bring any personal stuffs with her. So, she decided to drive home and fetched her stuffs before returning back to the hospital. Needless to say, she soaked her car seat, and according to her, 4-5 towels later on. After long long hours of contractions and 15 minutes of pushing, the baby no longer resides in her body. My friend proclaimed happily, 'Yay! I can have all my organs back!'. Ha.

The precious. Approximately 6 lb. Very cute. We visited her after work. The delivery went well, and everything is alright. We all felt thankful for that. Thank goodness.

I am very happy for my friend, and am very happy to have a chance to see a baby after so many years ... Women really do change after having a child. Having her lil' baby on her hand, she glows. Glowing with pride. One of my colleague said to her, 'Look at you, you're a mum now ...' . While we were there, we were cheering every act of the baby. The frown, yawn, the stretch ... 'Awwwww...'

The simplest happiness.

To me, nothing beats something like this.
Nothing.

Wow your colleauge was very brave to drive home.. but I guess since she works in a hospital she knew her condition better..

And yes, when you have a baby in your arm, you feel totally different. Nothing beats that feeling..

The baby looks beautiful.. Congrats to her.

Hey..GA,
Very nice of you to throw the baby shower for your friend..!
It's amazing how one feels after giving birth. I remembered .. how i was up and about after a c-section, just in awe .. when i see chloe.. and admire god's miracle. It was an overwhelming feeling for me.. as a first time mom.

mom2ashley, i know, it's not like she stays just next door but 20 minutes (by car) away from the hospital. anyhow, i guess she is aware of the fact that it would take hours before she could actually deliver, so she took the risk.

princess yoyo's mum, i bet it was .. you have a beautiful daughter out there ...

maria, maybe it's time for you to have one .... to prove to your gals that babies are not that naughty as they think afterall.

zara's mum, hopefully there will be a Zenith for you soon. =)

shiaulin ... hopefully there will be a baby girl on your way real soon ... i look forward to sharing the joy.
