Gota Love Your Wife’s Big Belly

August 5, 2012


Probably not the most flattering shot of my beautiful Michele, but I just love her belly. It’s so round, it’s very much alive (Peanut kicks, punches and squirms much more than Levi) and the way Michele’s belly button pops out inverted just makes me love the belly more. Took this picture on our 24 week […]

Peanut’s Fortnightly Belly Show – Episode 5 (24 weeks pregnant)

July 23, 2012


Michele and I spend most parts of our evenings – after tucking Levi into bed – with our hands placed on Michele’s belly. Peanut has so far been far more active than Levi and the last fortnight has seen many ‘hi fives’ for Mummy and Daddy. Well, I’m guessing it’s Peanut’s hand. It could have […]

Peanut’s Fortnightly Belly Show – Episode 4 (22 weeks pregnant)

July 10, 2012


Michele’s pregnancy reared its ugly head over the weekend. It was a family trip to the Puffing Billy in the Dandenong Ranges and Levi kept us busy all day. Michele was kept on her feet for most part of the day and by the end of the day she was a wreck. It’s Tuesday today […]

Hi Peanut!

July 5, 2012


Michele and I went for our 20 week ultrasound scan last Wednesday. At the time of the scan Michele was 20 weeks 3 days pregnant, so today (at the time of writing) Michele’s 21 weeks 3 days. Eek time flies. We have always opted for the private health route, so it wasn’t much of a […]

Peanut’s Fortnightly Belly Show – Episode 3 (20 weeks pregnant)

July 2, 2012


It’s true, woman do look better when they are pregnant. Michele just ‘glows’ and exudes a certain ‘radiance’ with that belly of hers. She’s at the stage where she just meanders along to get from A to B but the cute little pert waddle just makes me wished for one second Michele’s pregnancy is a […]

The Birthing Of A Singaporean Father: And Then There Were Three

April 7, 2010


“Never before seen pictures of Levi’s birth, our family in hospital and a video of us getting ready to come home!” – That’s how I would sell this article if given a chance.

“Babe, wake up. I think my water just broke.” – Part 3

March 30, 2010


We arrived at Frances Perry just after 1.15am. It’s March 17 2010. Thanks to the kind instructions of the midwives, I parked at the 30 minute car parking on the ground level. The traffic attendants only come out to prowl after 7am, so I could leave Thumper out there for five hours. Michele stepped out […]

“Babe, wake up. I think my water just broke.” – Part 2

March 28, 2010


Up until about 10pm, Michele’s contractions were about 30 minutes apart. They weren’t of the intense, crushing pain variety either so night time activities were still very doable. Before we headed to sleep, Michele had copped another contraction and she didn’t look too keen climbing up the stairs to our bedroom. Upon getting there, the […]

“Babe, wake up. I think my water just broke.” – Part 1

March 27, 2010


Hello, I hope everyone is well. At 2.30am on 16 March, Michele shook me on the shoulders vigourously and stirred me from my sleep. I had only went to bed several hours before after a long day at work, a heavy dinner and a light beer while watching the telly. Suffice to say, I was […]

Message For Baby (video)

March 11, 2010


Hello, I hope you are well. I took Michele and Caroline out to Williamstown for lunch today. There has been a lot of nervous and anxious energy in the house lately and I thought some fresh air would be great for the family. Besides, the wretched weather that has made international news in the past […]
