baby Maia Fae is home ... :)

after 52 days at the NICU, we finally mustered up courage to take baby Maia Fae home :) it will be a week tomorrow and man ... i have forgotten how difficult it is to care for a little one after a 5 year break. especially this little one ... who was born a preemie at 29 weeks and had difficulty in breathing for most of her stay at the NICU. usually, they don't do this, but we manage to loan an apnea monitor from the NICU so that mommy (already a nervous wreck) would get some sleep in between feeds.

it's uncanny how baby Maia would be turning 2 months soon, yet, in the order of a normal pregnancy, she is just at 37 weeks gestation and should be still in her mommy's protection until Christmas arrives.

our little bundle of miracle amazes us to no end ... how one so little and fragile can fight so hard and do all the things that she can.

thank you Prof CT Lim and his team of doctors and nurses for taking care of our precious little Maia ... no words can express how much we appreciate you guys!

baby Maia was 1.315 kg at birth ... now, she's just a little over 2kg.

and with a preemie ... one can't be too careful ...

at the moment, she's on house arrest ... and according to the Prof ... it should last a year!! ARGHH!!!

big sister Llara is as curious as curious can be ...

AWWWWW .....

ok guys ... it's not what you think it is ...

now now now ... stop being a drama queen ... mommy did NOT strangle you ...

what? i just burped you and you want milky again?

remember what the Prof said about your distended tummy???

after ...
the milky...
