MY FIRST PAIR OF BABY BOOTIES!!




MOM AND DAD'S FIRST PRESSIE TO ME...THE OTHER DAY THEY WALKED INTO BABY CITY TO CHECK OUT ALL THE CUTE LITTLE BABY THINGS IN THERE AND REALISING HOW EXPENSIVE EVERYTHING ELSE WAS, WALKED OUT WITH...MY FIRST PAIR OF BABY BOOTIES!!
A poem to our baby girl...
A LITTLE BIT OF HEAVEN DRIFTED DOWN FROM ABOVE
A HANDFUL OF HAPPINESS, A HEARTFUL OF LOVE.
THE MYSTERY OF LIFE, SO SACRED AND SWEET
THE GIVER OF JOY SO DEEP AND COMPLETE.
PRECIOUS AND PRICELESS, SO LOVABLE TOO,
THE WORLD'S SWEETEST MIRACLE,
BABY GIRL, IS YOU!!




WHEN DAD FIRST FELT ME MOVE!

"A father is always making his baby into a little woman. And when she is a woman he turns her back again."

MY GIFT TO DAD...

THIS MORNING MOMMY WOKE UP WITH A STRANGE CRAMP IN HER TUMMY -THIS WAS THE MOMENT I'VE BEEN WAITING FOR - SHE WOKE UP DAD AND ASKED HIM TO FEEL HOW I WAS LAYING. APPARENTLY I WAS LYING IN AN UNCOMFORTABLE POSITION (I ONLY DID THAT TO WAKE HER UP!). DAD RUBBED HER TUMMY FOR A WHILE AND AS SOON AS I FELT DAD'S TOUCH - I MOVED! AND SINCE DAD NEVER COULD FEEL ME MOVE BEFORE, AS I WAS STILL TOO TINY, THIS WAS REALLY GREAT FOR HIM. I COULD SENSE HIM BEING REALLY PROUD OF ME AT THAT MOMENT AND RIGHT THEN I KNEW...THAT'S EXACTLY HOW I WANT HIM TO FEEL ABOUT ME - FOREVER!! I LOVE YOU DAD!!

JADA @ 18 WEEKS




OH GOODY! MOM AND DAD GETS TO SEE ME AGAIN TODAY...IT HAS SURE BEEN A LONG WAIT SINCE THE LAST TIME WE GOT TO SEE EACHOTHER - WHAT MAKES THIS VISIT EXTRA SPECIAL IS THAT TODAY DOC WILL FINALLY BE ABLE TO TELL WHETHER I'M A LITTLE GIRL OR BOY! MOM AND DAD ARE REALLY EXCITED ABOUT THIS. A FEW DAYS AGO MOM'S COLLEAGUE, WHO'S ALSO PREGNANT, DESCOVERED AT ONLY 16 WEEKS THAT SHE'S EXPETING A BABY BOY. WHEN MOM LOOKS AT HER IN AWE SHE NAUGHTILY ADMITS THAT SHE'D MADE SURE TO STUFF HERSELF WITH SWEETS THE MORNING OF THEIR APPOINTMENT & GOBBLED DOWN A FULL GLASS OF COKE ( THIS APPARENTLY MAKES US BABBIES MORE ACTIVE)! NOW MOM IS EVEN MORE STUNNED, BUT TODAY MOM DOES THE SAME, ECCEPT SHE ONLY EATS ONE SWEET AND NO COKE (MAINLY BECAUSE DAD WOULDN'T LET HER). AS ALWAYS DOC IS HAPPY WITH MY GROWTH AND MY HEARTBEAT IS SPOT ON...SHE EXPLAINS WHAT A HECTIC WEEK SHE'S HAD - SEEN LOTS OF SICK MOMMIES AND BABBIES THAT IT'S ALMOST A RELIEF TO HER THAT MOM AND I AND SO HEALTHY! MOM AND DAD THANKS GOD FOR THIS! IM NOT TOO FAMILIAR WITH THIS GOD FELLA, BUT I CAN TELL MOM AND DAD IS QUITE FOND OF HIM, SO I LIKE HIM ALLOT ALLREADY! DOC HAS A GOOD LOOKSIE AT ME AND WITHOUT HAVING TO SHAKE MOMMY'S TUMMY ONCE, SHE SAYS I'M A GIRL! (GUESS THE SWEETS HELPED)! DOC USES BIG WORDS LIKE THERE'S NO "WILLIE?" BETWEEN MY LEGS AND MY "OVARIES?" ARE VISIBLE AND THAT APPARENTLY MAKES ME A GIRL...MOM AND DAD IS VERY HAPPY ABOUT THE NEWS...I DONT KNOW WHAT ALL THIS MEANS YET, BUT IT MAKES ME VERY HAPPY TOO! I START KICKING WILD AND DO A COUPLE OF SUMMERSAULTS - THE BEST PART ABOUT THIS IS THAT MOM CAN FEEL ME DO IT - SO I DO IT AS OFTEN AS POSSIBLE SO MOM AND DAD WILL NEVER FORGET ABOUT ME...HERE...IN THIS DARK,COSY PLACE CALLED MOMMY'S TUMMY!

Financial Tips for Expectant Parents

It goes without saying that the bigger a family grows, so does the need for more financial security. As a parent (especially a first time parent) we dream of only giving our kid(s) the best in life, but we also soon wake to reality and the financial implications that comes with this little bundle of joy, so after you've shared the GREAT news that you're expecting, with your family and hundreds of your friends, it's time to seriously sit down and descuss your financial position together with your partner. As first time parents ourselves, Cheeky Baby would love to share the following with other expecting parents out there and also hear from your experiences. Let's go through this together!

OUR BABY AT 12 WEEKS - 17-12-2009


'LLO AGAIN!
IT'S BEEN TWO WEEKS SINCE MOMMY AND DADDY LAST SAW ME AND TODAY THEY HAVE COME FOR A FETAL ASSESSMENT TO MAKE SURE THERE'S NOTHING SERIOUSLY WRONG WITH MY HEALTH...I LIKE THE FEELING MOM GETS IN THE PIT OF HER TUMMY WHENEVER THE DOCTOR PUTS THAT ICY COLD STUFF ON HER BELLY AND DAD REACHES OUT TO HOLD HER HAND...OH HOW I LOVE THEM BOTH ALREADY!! DOC ONCE AGAIN GIVES THEM GOOD NEWS - I'M DOING JUST GREAT! YIPPEE! I KNEW I WOULDN'T DISSAPOINT THEM. DOC IS SHAKING MOMMY'S TUMMY AGAIN SO I CAN MOVE THE OTHER WAY (I'M SOOOO TIRED TODAY) DAD IS GETTING REALLY UPSET COZ HE THINKS THAT MOM OR I MIGHT BE HURTING,BUT ACTUALLY IT'S JUST TICKLISH AND I FINALLY GIVE IN AND MOVE WHERE HE WANTS ME TO...BESIDES, I'M DOING THIS FOR MOM & DAD. DOC PREDICTS THAT I MAY BE A GIRL, BUT BECAUSE MY ORGANS ARE NOT YET FULLY DEVELOPED, THERE'S NO WAY TO SAY FOR SURE. MOM AND DAD HOWEVER WILL BE HAPPY WITH WHATEVER SEX I TURN OUT TO BE - I THINK I MIGHT JUST BE THE LUCKIEST LITTLE FETUS OUT THERE!!

OUR BABY AT 10 WEEKS- 01-12-2009


Hello Everyone! Today mommy and daddy saw me for the very first time and although I cannot hear a word, they sure seem pretty excited while doc is shaking mommy's tummy so they can all have a good look at me and I can sense them being very happy with what they see - Doc tells them I'm doing well and that my heartbeat is strong.
Allthough mommy and daddy is very happy expecting me, it's also been a really tough couple of weeks for mom - so far she's been sick all day everyday. She tells dad she wishes it would go away, but not once do I get the feeling she's unhappy with me! I have just about gotten used to my surroundings, I feel safe here and mom and dad makes sure I eat and drink healthily - But still I cannot wait to finally be in their loving embrace!
