My little Chloe was Christened last January 1, 2009 at 4pm. She was so sound asleep that when the priest poured holy water on her head, it didn't even woke her up. The ceremony ended with her still asleep. LOL! Her Godfathers and Godmothers were there to welcome her to the Christian world. After her christening, we had a little celebration back at home. Baby Chloe woke up to have her milk but went back to sleep unaware of the people who came to see her. :)
It's been quite awhile since my last blog post. A lot of things happened already in my life right now. So many changes and im still adjusting with it. I really don't know how to start this blog entry but let me share to you as i recall the recent events in my life.
Around 3 am on December 22, i got up in my bed and went to the bathroom to pee. When i went back to bed, i suddenly felt a gush of fluid coming out. I hurriedly got up on my feet. My hubby woke up as well and asked what was wrong. I couldn't tell yet but i had a feeling that my water bag broke. Went back to the bathroom to check and boy was i right. I was then having my contractions but the pain was still bearable. My hubby and I gathered up my things and we went to the hospital. I was then brought to the delivery room by 7 am. I was in so much pain. My contractions were becoming more regular. When my my doctor came to see me, she told me i was still around 4-5 cm. I could not understand the pain i was going through. It was indescribable. I told myself that i wont ever want to go through with it again. LOL! Around 10 am, the doctor came to check on me and i was so glad when she told me that im getting there since i was already around 8 cm. Just then everything went blur as the nurse came to inject me and all the nurses in the delivery room were coaching me what to do. They were so helpful. Around 11:45, i had my one last push and i heard my baby's first cry. The nurse put the baby on my chest for a few seconds and our eyes met. She was a huge baby. After that i dozed off to sleep for a few minutes and woke up when the doctor was doing her stitches on me. By 1:00pm i was brought back to my room where my hubby and my Aunt was waiting. I was too exhausted that i fell off to sleep.
My baby would be 2weeks old tomorrow. Her full name is Chloe Sabine Salaum. She was God's beautiful Christmas present. I am so happy to have her. She is my joy and my life. Im still adjusting to her waking schedules which is usually at around 12 am. My hubby and i take turns in waking up in wee hours of the night when baby is hungry or needs her nappies changed. Right now, my baby is sound asleep which grabs me the chance to post this entry which is long over due. :)
I know i'm late for Yummy Sunday but i would still love to post my entry anyway. I guess better late than never. :) My Aunt just got back from the US and she took me and my cousins at Chowking for Halo-halo. It is a popular Filipino dessert that is a mixture of shaved ice and milk to which are added various boiled sweet beans and fruits, and served cold in a tall glass or bowl.
I just love halo-halo. So delicious! For more Yummy Sunday just click on the badge...
I had been too lazy this past few days to do anything and that includes updating my blog. All i did was sleep, eat and sleep. Not productive huh? Well, i guess i'm just taking this opportunity to get enough rest and sleep now that i can still afford to have one. I know when the baby comes out, sleep would be an expensive commodity i have to pay. LOL! By the way, my Aunt just got back from her 6 months vacation in the U.S. last Wednesday and she bought me some cool baby stuffs. I was happy when i saw all those things she bought for my baby. I'm so thankful. Now, my hubby and i will just have to buy a couple of stuffs and we're set by the time my baby arrives.
I had my ultrasound this afternoon. My hubby and i went there together. We were so happy to see the images of the baby. The doctor pointed to us each baby parts. The baby's feature is much clearer to me now as compared to my first ultrasound test which was taken last September. My hubby and i felt the excitement upon seeing our baby. It won't be long and we will finally get to see and hold her in our arms. I'm having a baby girl and she will be named Chloe. I just felt that the name would be perfect for her. According to my physician, i might give birth on the 28th of December. After my ultrasound test, my hubby and i went to the mall to buy some more baby stuffs. I enjoyed buying stuffs for my baby. Now that im nearing my expected due date, i am just filled with so much emotions. I am excited and at the same time scared of the labor process. I really hope and pray that i will have a normal delivery because undergoing cesarian section is very expensive and the healing time is much longer as compared to a normal delivery.
I have learned to love fresh garden salads. They are not only delicious but a healthy food as well. This is Tiki Wacky Chicken Salad from Bigby's Cafe. It was my first time to try this one but i loved the taste so much.
