my lovely mom
my best friend.
4 years ago today, we said “I do” to each other. 4 years on, sometimes it still feel like it was just yesterday and I wish I can wake up everyday for the next days to come and say “I do” to you again, and again.
Love you, husband.
(Guess nowadays it will be more “He wants…”)
Love this new TVC produced to celebrate 45 years of National Service. Titled From Father to Son, it showed how some parts of National Service had changed over the 45 years, and other parts remained the same. It also definitely brought back some memories of my National Service, more than 20 years ago.
Was cutting his nails last night when I accidentally cut too close to his skin and nick his flesh. He cried. No. He screamed in pain. It took us almost 20 minutes to stop the bleeding and his crying – soothing and holding his little hand while trying to stop the bleeding and Yann feeding him hoping it will calm him down.
It was painful for him. And for me.
Set between the original Tron movie and Tron Legacy, Tron Uprising is an animated TV series by Disney XD. After watching the first episode, I think this has potential to be much, much better than Tron Legacy.
Beck is a young program who becomes the skillful leader of a revolution inside the computer world of The Grid. His mission is to free his home and friends from the reign of the villainous Clu and his henchman General Tesler. Beck will be trained by Tron – the greatest warrior the Grid has ever come to know. Tron will not only teach Beck the fighting and light cycle skills he needs to challenge this brutal military occupation, but he will be a guide and mentor to him as he grows beyond his youthful, impulsive nature into a courageous, powerful, strong leader. Destined to become the next Tron of the system, Beck adopts Tron’s persona and becomes the archenemy of General Tesler and his oppressive forces.
If you have an US iTunes account, you can download the first episode – Beck’s Beginning for free for a limited time.
Well that wasn’t exactly what Aidan said to me, but this evening, like any other evenings, we first started to give him his 7pm bath. After which, Yann will give him a baby massage before feeding him dinner, aka the-B-juice. After that, I’ll take over and hold and pet him to sleep.
Tonight it was slightly different. He cried when I held him up. He cried when I swaddled him and held him up. He cried when I held him up and pet him, while swaying side to side. He cried when I try to give him his pacifier while holding him up.
I put him back down on the bed just to adjust his swaddle. He stopped crying. I picked him up and he started bawling again. I took him to his cot, and gently put him down, still with his eyes wide opened. He stopped crying.
He looked around, adjusted himself, and slowly look at me while I pat his tummy. Then he fell asleep.
Let’s see if it happens again tomorrow.
World, meet Aidan.
Aidan couldn’t wait to exit Mommy’s womb and popped out to say hello on Monday, March 5, at 4am.
He’s a teeny tiny 2.5kg at 37 weeks + 3 days, and we are thrilled that he is here with us, safe and sound. Both mama and baby are fine.
There will be more stories, and photos but in the meantime, we are basking in the sweetness of our baby and trying to stay awake.
