It was March 26, 2009 when I delivered Dip-Dip via Caesarian, it wasn't a planned Caesarian. It was a decision we both had to make at the eleventh hour to ensure that she will be safely delivered into this world. I guess Dipdip pretty much liked it inside my womb that she didn't want to come out. And of course, it also had something to do with my safety as well. It's funny because some friends would blame it on my age (referring to me as "old") because I had Pauline at the age of 32 years old. But what can I do - I only got married just a few days before I would turn 31, ya know. Well, anyway, we were so happy that the Lord has answered our prayers to bless us with a child.
She was 6.8 lbs (3.1 kgs) when I delivered her. Not bad!
postpartum hypertension. I was advised to rest during nighttime so it was my hubby who would usually wake up during the night to bottle feed her. At daytime, I would try to breastfeed her but oftentimes my milk production can't also keep up with her appetite. She got used to the bottle all the more when I had to go back to my office work.
On her tenth month, she would look forward to outdoor walks. Yes, gradually, she's learning to walk by herself.
On her eleventh month, she wants MORE attention... And we're giving her that, too. They say, in parenting, love is spelled as T-I-M-E and I rightly believe so.
Celebrating one year of birth! Praise be to God! Will post her birthday celebration on a separate blog soon. :-)
