Baby on Board

It is a very nice and wonderful occasion to have to welcome a new addition to your ever growing family, most especially if you are the one who is directly responsible for it. I am not talking about me but about my one and only sister in this world, who just last month gave birth to her first child, an amazingly cute little baby boy.

They have been waiting for this event for how many years already. They both really thought that they will not have a child anymore based on what have been explained to them by their doctors. They both had been tested for it and it was my sister, unfortunately, whose body was at fault.

They had already accepted the fact of it and were already resigned to not having a child of their own. Although it was a big blow to their morale, especially to their relationship, they thankfully managed to put things into perspective and saw things just as they are.

They instead, were planning to adopt a child four years into their marriage and then this baby happened to them. Well let’s just say they were very much happy as happy can get, especially my sweet little sister who cannot believe it herself. It seems that miracles do tend to happen when you least expect it, even if you have already given up hope on something, there is always a way.

Well they prayed very hard for it believing it could still happen, so maybe prayers do help a lot in the scheme of things. I do not know how it happened, and certainly the odds are stacked very high for it to happen to them, but I am just very happy for them that it did.

What they are worried about now is vastly very different from the things that they were worried about back then. What used to be worries of having a child now turned into worries on how to properly care for one, as they are totally clueless on it, with this being their first time doing so.

They had already figured about feeding cycles and the irregular schedules of the baby the hard way. Breastfeeding thankfully came naturally with my sister as well as the proper way of bathing the baby, among other things, and they already knew about newborn growth spurts from reading it on the internet. So maybe they are on the right track it may seem.

Now they are dealing with newborn diarrhea and the ramifications of it. They are a little bit afraid of it as the baby just cries and cries when it happens, but I trust they know what to do with situations like this. Just now they were planning on having the baby checked by a doctor so I guess they are really on the right track.

Anyways, if they do need any help about anything that they cannot manage, I am just a phone call away and I will do anything I can just to make sure all of them are fine. That’s just how brothers are.
