Baby Daryl was born today via elective c-section. He was born around 2:20pm, weighed 2.57kg and 47cm.
So far, we can see that he is not as ‘fierce’ as his elder sister, which is a prayer answered. He seems to be really patient too, until now he hasn’t screamed for milk! In fact, he’s so relaxed we’re a bit worried haha, but doctor said it is normal for babies to sleep after they’re born.
You might want to check out baby Rachels’ photos, see if you can spot any resemblance or not!
After bath time, they accidentally put him in a pink blanket because he ‘looked like a girl’, and he looks even more like his sister.
Mummy was already up and walking early the next morning, to the amazement of nurses. But Poey Chin is a strong girl… the faster she walks around, then faster she will recover.
Rachel has also met baby Daryl, and keeps wanting to kiss him. We gave Rachel a soft toy from her little brother, but she insists on letting him play with it. Another prayer answered, she seems to have no hostility to her brother (yet)
Before the operation, I was put to wait in a waiting room off the surgical theater. While waiting I took some photos of myself.
More photos to come!
