Time really flies. I still can’t believe that I have been a full-time dad for 4 months already!
Taking care of a baby is not easy. It’s Tiring and really really Emotional.
Without family support and lots of love for the baby, I guess it is really easy to get into depression.
I think I have teared more times in the past 4 months than in the past 10 years combined. LOL.
When Emotions kick in:
When little Raiden’s first warcry was heard. It’s amazing to see the start of a new life.
When he was admitted to KKH for high Jaundice treatment with intense phototherapy. All 4 sides are shine with lights and wearing nothing except a pee bag. His little hand is also poked with the drip. Seeing his little body taking such a punishment really breaks me down.
When his little is feet is bruised from the constant drawing of blood for jaundice followup checks at polyclinic every few days after he is discharged.
When he first encountered serious rashes on his face and neck. His eyebrow is also attacked with cradle cap. Comments from all over came in and self-doubt sets in, am I capable of taking care of this child?
When he held onto my thumb, it’s indescribable.
When he looks at me and try his best to converse with me by using his endless “ohhh oh ohhhh”
When he performs his first roll over on his own, I know he really has grown up.
He is now learning to steady his head and trying to crawl!
My wife and I can’t wait for him to achieve his next milestone. Till then……….
