Thank you everyone for your congratulations and well wishes.
I apologize that I don’t have time to reply to each individual comment. I’ve spent the whole day at the hospital with my darlings.
Today I found out that parenthood is a very humbling experience.
I used to think that I knew a lot about lots of things.
Now I know that I don’t know anything at all.
I now have the utmost respect for my parents for raising me.
I respect all you parents who have survived this tremendously difficult task. It’s my first day, and I’m already overwhelmed.
Our hearts break each time baby Rachel cries and we have no idea what she needs.
We’re having some difficulty getting started with breastfeeding. Princess Rachel sucks for a few seconds, and when she finds that she isn’t getting any milk, she gives up and refuses to open her mouth. If we keep persisting, she starts to cry until she turns beet red. *sob sob*
Any expert advice?
Other than that, so far it’s wonderful. Today I rocked baby to sleep in my arms. Today she opened her eyes to look for me when she heard my voice. Today I think she smiled at me.
Happy Mother’s Day to my darling wife, my mummy, and all you mothers out there!
P/S: Sorry, no photos today. I’m just too tired.
