coffee break ver. 1.43

Hands down, it’s having Lucas.

The experience of having an individual grow inside you is just simply amazing. From seeing his first sonogram when he was just nothing but a flashing dot, to seeing him smile and play with his foot on his 3d/4d ultrasound, to knowing that I was 6cm dilated already and finally giving birth to him after 6 hours of not-so-difficult labor --- everything is just unforgettable.

He is only 2 months and 3 weeks old now, but in his own way, he has made our lives richer and happier. It has just begun, and I am looking forward to the challenges and the rewarding experiences that are yet come.

Lastly, I consider having Lucas as a milestone because it introduced me to JJ --- the dad. Oh, yeah, I’ve known JJ – the husband but believe me, seeing how he is with Lucas just makes me love him even more. He’s hands-on with the little guy and can pretty much do everything (except mimic my “hele” and of course, nurse him :-) ). He’d always make sure that he’s there attending the regular check-ups. I remember the first time I met JJ-the dad, it was when we went down to the breastfeeding room in the hospital a day after I gave birth. He was not allowed in the room and was just asked to wait outside. When I saw him again after that, the first thing that he said was “Ang daya. Bakit hindi ako puede. Hindi ko tuloy siya nakita.” I knew then that he wasn’t gonna be a hi-hello daddy to Lucas. And so far, I am sooo right :-)

Here's our little boy --- the best gift we've received :-)
