It has been  4 days since Shayanne entered our lives and, as expected, we have been kept on our toes since then. So many never-ending things to do, at home, at work, everywhere.

My nature of work does not allow me to take breaks of any kind because it only means I have mountains of paperwork to dig through when I return. I was just away from the office for 1 entire day (had the intention to go in for 1/2 day but circumstances did not permit me) and when I got in the next day……there was literally a MOUNTAIN of paperwork on my desk.

Anyway, enough about work. More on the family.

Kor kor Braedyn seems to take to Shayanne very well. We expected the worst but to date he has only asked me to carry him (while I was carrying Shayanne) twice. He knows that Mei Mei is no longer in mummy’s tummy but a real person. He will kiss Shayanne when asked to and he LOVES to caress her face (though he can be quite rough because he cannot control the pressure exerted). When Mei Mei cries and requires our attention, he will sit by the side and observe. I must say I am very, very proud of him. Grown up overnight he has.

Wifey and I have totally forgotten how to care for a newborn which is surprising considering that both of them are only 15 months apart. Things are coming back slowly though. I think if we had a larger gap between Braedyn and Shayanne, we would be in worse shape.

Putting Braedyn to bed is difficult though, he would insist of being close to Mei Mei and mummy which is not possible because he might roll over her. So I end up with him at the foot of the bed with mummy and Mei Mei at the head. Fortunately, once he falls asleep he will continue to sleep through Shayanne’s cries till his usual wake-up time in the morning. When he wakes up he will crawl over and give Mei Mei a kiss. We hope that continues.

    Any pics of Brae kissing or carressing his mei mei?
    We are trying very hard to get the shots. We have lots of pics of him before and after the kiss. Need to get a better camera.
