Just imagine being in this open and noisy world at 17 days after 910 days in a floating chamber. Surely you need more than 17 days to feel at ease in a new surroundings. After all I have another 27 days of confinement so all I need to do is worry about baby. So I should cuddle up with him as much as I could.
All a baby does is cry and cry to convey his needs. But a 3 year old screams and rams his way into everything. My elder son has welcomed baby with open arms so far. He kisses the baby every hour or so and the baby has made him drink his milk more often. He also suddenly eats rice like 4 times a day.
I just bathed baby yesterday and it was cool, also cooked my own lunch... albeit a simple one. Fried chicken with garlic and black pepper gravy. Thank you Allah for giving me these two babies. I hope to be a good mother to them. Hopefully they will grow up as responsible human beings full of love.
While we are in for a long journey, I hope that I could raise them both and be sane and not so emotional at the same time like I did with my first son. There were times when he would cry everytime I cook and he was 9 months at that time. Now I don't feel panicky when my baby boy starts crying especially when he has just fed his milk. The key to balancing is being composed and don't let your anger get the best of you. Well bye!
