Madeline at 6 months

16 April 2015 by rathy | Leave a comment

Our daughter turned six months old on April 1. No joke! Time has flown, and she’s already got her own personality. Generally, Maddie is quite a chill and relaxed baby. She doesn’t really fuss much, and does well on outings. She’s learned to roll over, sit up unsupported, laughs and babbles a lot, and likes to grab at anything you’re holding whether it’s a piece of paper or an iPhone. She’s still a tiny baby compared to others, but that’s ok. She’s growing at a steady pace. And as long as she’s healthy, I’m happy.

As for myself, six months postpartum, I’ve come to terms with how my body has changed after my pregnancy. I’ve since lost the baby weight that I gained, but it’s definitely a different body. Life after the birth of Maddie has also changed, and has taken some time to get used to. Every moment, we feel so busy and rushed. I just need to remember to breathe once in a while, and realize that every moment is also fleeting. The moments with Maddie, and the moments that my husband and I have together.

I’m hoping now that every chance I get, I can capture our life with Madeline to remember every bit of how much we love her.

Madeline

01 November 2014 by rathy | 3 comments

She’s here! Our Maddie. She was born on October 1, five days before her due date. We had gone in for an ultrasound appointment the day before to check her status not knowing what was coming next. My OB/Gyn decided that we should induce due to her small size and wanted her out while she was healthy. We were a little surprised that it was going to happen, but we were so excited that we’d get to see our little girl sooner.

I had my family there and my husband Bruce was so supportive. We stayed at the hospital for the induction, and waited till the next day before they decided to break my water and proceed with the delivery. The contractions prior to the water break were manageable. But let me tell you. Once it happened, each contraction got painful after that. Thank you, epidural.

By mid-afternoon, little Madeline came into the world. Bruce and I could not help but cry seeing our sweet girl for the very first time. We were so happy and emotional and excited. She was ours to keep.

We stayed in the hospital for a bit afterwards while I recovered. Boy was I exhausted! But we were doing alright. Bruce changed her diapers like a pro, and Maddie was breastfeeding like a champ. Once we left the hospital and was on our own without the nurses, it definitely took some major adjusting to. We tried to nap whenever we could.

Maddie has been doing great with each new day. She regained her weight and was back at her birth weight in less than a week, which was awesome since for some it takes up to two weeks.

And now, Madeline is one month old. Her spontaneous smiles are so cute. Her baby talk is adorable. She’s our pride and joy, and we love her so much. We’re so excited for all the new things as she continues to grow. But for now, we’re just taking in every little moment as they happen.

Happy one month Madeline! Mommy and Daddy love you to infinity and beyond.

Krischel + Ian

16 September 2014 by rathy | Leave a comment

One of our good family friends finally got married! The wedding was beautiful. It took place at the Kitsap Memorial State Park, and the location was breathtaking. They had a lovely outdoor ceremony in the middle of the woods, and lots of rustic charm with every decor piece. I actually designed and laser cut all of the centerpiece location names (which are all of the places they’ve traveled together), as well as the “K & I” cake topper for their wedding. I think those turned out really nice.

My sister was one of the bridesmaids. I was initially a bridesmaid, but at 37 weeks pregnant I didn’t think I should risk it. I was perfectly ok with being a guest.

Also, being that I was very pregnant I decided not to lug around the 5D Mark II to the wedding just to get some photos. I brought along my Fujifilm X-Pro1 and managed to get a few shots.

Congratulations Krischel and Ian!! May your love take you to new places as you travel through this next journey.

Two baby showers

05 August 2014 by rathy | Leave a comment

So as I mentioned in a previous post, my husband and I are expecting. And we couldn’t be anymore happier right now knowing we will have our own child to love and care for.

To celebrate, we were lucky enough to get two baby showers! Well, we had family and friends in Seattle, and then also family and friends in Olympia. We figured we’d divide it up to accommodate family and friends who wouldn’t be able to make it due to timing or location as well as to split the guest list into more manageable numbers.

We had a wonderful time at both, and are so thankful for how much work was put in. The first shower was hosted by my brother-in-law and sister-in-law at their home. The food was prepared by them, as well as my sister-in-law’s sister and mother. Everything looked amazing!

The second baby shower occurred the weekend after and was hosted by my parents and sister. Again, everything looked beautiful and we had several family friends to help with food.

Krischel’s Bridal Shower

30 July 2014 by rathy | Leave a comment

Our good friends Krischel and Ian are finally tying the knot this year! And of course we had to throw a bridal shower for the bride-to-be! The theme was mainly yellow to play off the beautiful yellow diamond engagement ring that Ian proposed to her with while on vacation in Athens, Greece. Sounds like a movie! I was behind the scenes with a big belly, but you’ll see me in the group shot.
