Anticipating spring, no more

un bisou pour mon petit bébé
Our little baby girl arrived in the springtime, so we have decided to give her a name that is similar or synonymous to Spring.

When I first heard her voice, it was the loveliest sound imaginable.  I thought to myself, all the nine months of pain and effort are worth it.  And that I would do it all over again just to see this amazing bundle of joy that my husband and I now share.

I spent a week at the clinic for the delivery and recuperation.  It was a good stay at the hospital especially since all the nurses and doctors and caregivers really took good care of me and the baby during our stay there.  we managed to find a room of our own for privacy, and my husband was able to stay with me the whole time.

 There were a lot of friends who visited, and even brought some lovely presents, food and some entertainment.  I couldn't be thankful enough for having them around during this time.

Finally, there were also my husband's parents who took leave from work for a week.  They managed to help us with a lot of chores, especially with regard to the baby's room.  They took some time to complete and arrange all the furniture and decors in the room.  And it ended up looking all warm and a lot lovelier than I have imagined.

It has been a good first week for my daughter, indeed.  and I feel like celebrating especially since my in-laws left a boxful of champagne at home.

My in-law's very thoughtful gift to me. They know I've been thirsty for champagne for nine months :)
Cheers everyone! :)
