Now I get it.
I used to be woken up by my darling's bawling.
Now I go on the offensive to wake her up first and feed her.
"Wake up Maggie. Wake up. Oei wake up Maggie."

My darling has a role in maintaining the smooth functioning of my family and that is to play with her ah gong's and ah ma's.
It is a function as important as Wifey and I bringing back the dough.
The practice of confinement gave rise to months-long institutionalized rest for mummies even for those who don't practise it.
That's a lot of baby poop on my hands.
Sturut girl bawled but blue screened right at her mummy's nipples. *poke poke* No response but eyes were open.
That laughter soon gave way to a mini chat about ah Jun HTHT-ing with Wifey. My sis, ah Jun and Wifey all cried within the immediate days of giving birth.
I can't be more grateful for my cousin and my sis giving all the love and support to my wife.
Dengue risk or air conditioning for my baby girl? Air conditioning, though #theysay it isn't good for newborns.
Newborns cry not for comfort reasons.
Wifey teared when she realised our 6-days old newborn is fast becoming an infant. She is now cherishing every moment before this beauty overload rooted in absolute innocence and natural wonder crosses into the phase of nurture and development.
Today, my girl remains awake without crying. The prelude to interacting with all who loves her.
Since my daughter's birth, I have been a father. Today, I'll be a son.
The whole baby thing is like a 72km route march
