Photos : Celebrating Daddy's birthday

Video : Arianne and Daddy having a shower together

Today is a very special day for me. Not only its my birthday but also a very special year where we are all greeted with the arrival of Baby Arianne, a new member to our ever growing foo's family. I had been thinking all week what to do to kickstart this special day and you will see in a while what i had came up with. 

The video was shot live by my wife in our bathroom with no editing. Its a raw cut and dont even try to guess, i m not in total nude except for Baby Arianne who is. I had tried to convince my son, Brandon earlier to join us but he was too shy to participate. 

You will findout later in the clip that we both have so much fun dipping and I must say Arianne had most of the fun as it must had reminded her the environment she had for 9 months in her mom's womb. She was so relax in the water and practically floating most of the time, thats why experts say babies are natural swimmers.

It will be a day that we both will remember for life and best of all its captured on video. Also check out the skin contrast between Arianne and myself, i didnt realise that i m even fairer than her.

Arianne 1st Day Out

Today is Arianne's first day out since returning home from the hospital. I know i m not supposed to take her out as she is still within the 1 month confinement period but Fionne is getting rather bored and want to go out for a walk.

I m not too sure whether Arianne had a good time as she was practically crying most of the time. I m not sure whether she wants milk and she is not used to the new environment at the Grand Gateway Mall in Xu Jia Hui. We stayed on for another half and hour and left for home.

I must say that the biggest joy was holding Arianne and feeling close to her. I guess this is what parenthood is all about and i m getting another shot at it again and hope to do much better this time.

Day 8 : Fionne's Mom (Grandma) and Arianne

My mom in law arrived yesterday evening bringing in 2 full bags of products from malaysia for both Fionne and Arianne. It almost weighed about 40 kg and its amazing that she carried it all the way from Kuala Lumpur to Shanghai via Hangzhou by herself.

She will be staying with us for 1 month providing Fionne and Arianne the love and care they so needed thus relieving me to go back to work and get up to speed again.
