The Little Big Brother

http://matthewsmomma.wordpress.com/2013/12/04/the-little-big-brother/ A month later, and it seems as if we have all settled down into a new routine with the addition of Emma in the family. More or less, anyway. My concerns about Matthew feeling excluded, replaced, or not being able to understand how and why he’s no longer the sole apple of our eyes, […] Read more…

Once Upon a Five Years Ago

“Here’s what’s going to happen in case I expire,” Augz began to explain. “Don’t say that,” I said. “Wait, are you having some kind of premonition???!!” “No, no, I’m just saying, here’s the plan… cos you never know.” “Stop saying that!!!” That was the conversation we had two nights ago, on the last night I […] Read more…

Going Back 2 Years in Time

http://matthewsmomma.wordpress.com/2013/10/29/going-back-2-years-in-time/ My angel of the morning It’s been four days since I left my baby behind at home, to deliver the new one at Mount Alvernia. To be honest, this entire experience over the last four days has been more  like travelling two years back in time. Some distance from these last four days, and some […] Read more…

Anticipating Emma T-Minus 1 Day

As it turns out, Emma isn’t going to be a Halloween baby! So today proved to be our last gynae visit and as usual, the good doctor says, “Oh, she’s really low. May not make it to 31st, you know?” Well, he’s been saying that for the last month and that’s been making me extra […] Read more…

The Boy Who Made His Parents Weep

http://matthewsmomma.wordpress.com/2013/10/22/the-boy-who-made-his-parents-weep/ Mr Cow & Family The other night, Matthew had both Augz and I weeping as we were putting him to sleep. We were, in fact, spontaneously moved to tears by his innocent act of surrender of his favourite cows. You see, Mr Cow* (the leftmost one) is his favourite toy. It was given by […] Read more…

AMEN!

http://matthewsmomma.wordpress.com/2013/10/17/amen/ Last night would officially be the night when Matthew finally clasped his hands properly for a decent “Amen!” It’s one of those small accomplishments that are just so cute to celebrate, especially when he seems so proud of it. Thanks to Karen who has always shared how she had prayed with Timothy (her son, […] Read more…

Anticipating Emma T-Minus 15 Days

“One more month to go?” a friend asked when we met up yesterday, referring to when Emma is going to be due. “No, two more weeks!” I chirpily announced. And then for the rest of the day after that, I found myself sinking into anxiety and panic. Two more weeks! Where did the time go? […] Read more…

When Memory Fades… & Anticipating Emma T-Minus 22 Days

http://matthewsmomma.wordpress.com/2013/10/09/when-memory-fades/ Many Matthew and Mummy moments go by in their usual fleeting manner. These here, are those that I’ve managed to immortalise. *beams* I say to Augz that he will get to remember many father-and-son moments because I try to capture as much as I can… whereas I hardly have a decent shot with Matt, […] Read more…

Anticipating Emma T-Minus 28 Days (We Hope…)

Gynae visit today ended with the same caution – that I might not make it to 31st. Emma might really just arrive earlier. For a while, I’ve been feeling her really low and the last visit confirmed that she is indeed, already pretty low. Today’s visit threw up nothing new. Which also means I won’t […] Read more…
