Cute as a Button

OK, so I am biased :) My daughter looks very much like her brother at this stage minus the hair and eye colour. She'll look more biracial than her brother I suspect. Healthy as per doctor's check-up. Has a little cradle cap and eczema but that will go away.

Nothing new to report really - she's a great baby so I feel blessed. She can sleep through the night already but feedings are important for growth. Doctor agrees and says only "over-sized" babies don't need night feedings. I chuckled when he said that - my daughter is definitely not "over-sized" as she is in the 50th percentile for length, weight, and head. I really like this doctor - he's intelligent, funny, patient, and focused on the individual.

Interesting news about FRRO - I hope it works out for everyone who is impacted. I'm not sure if I am impacted or not as a single individual so I have sent an email to the clinic to inquire. My plan was to bring a surrogate over to India to get implanted with my frozen embryos. I'm hoping I can still do that although my plans for a third child have been postponed.

Thank you for letting me share this part of my world with you!


  1. What cute, chubby cheeks! You must be so thrilled. :)

    We have not received the dreaded letter, so I suspect we are in the "grey zone" hopefully allowed to proceed with FET. If not, I don't know what fate will become of those embryos, yours and ours.

    1. Thanks! Yes, I'm crossing fingers for the future of our embryos!

  2. Oh indeed, she is cute as a button! She does look more like a little " gui mui jai" :-)

  3. The cutest button!!! Such sweet little cheeks :)

  4. Appreciate your posting and the adorable baby photos. Please keep writing. Happy wishes
