A Beautiful Miracle
Posted on: 4th of November 2012 | Under: Baby Tales, Life & Love

**This will be my attempt to look back and share our whirlwind experience giving birth to a premature baby. Zoë’s NICU time, which lasted two and a half months(!), was a series of ups and downs. Most of it was really scary, but in the end, Zoë proved to be a great fighter. She is now a happy one-year-old, so loud and active, it’s hard to believe she came into the world so tiny and fragile.**

 

We are blessed. So very blessed, because God gave us a beautiful miracle in the form of a baby girl.

Zoë Sofia
Our precious gift.

No one can ever be prepared to give birth two and a half months too early. She wasn’t meant to arrive until November 2011. Eleven-elven-eleven, the day that we were looking forward to. I had pictured myself making that drive with my husband to the emergency room, armed with our hospital bag essentials. I had even planned on bringing my camera to the delivery room, hoping that one of the nurses could document her arrival. But all that went down the drain when our little girl decided that she wanted to come out early.

Our Wedding: SDE Video
Posted on: 10th of June 2011 | Under: Life & Love, Our Wedding

It’s been almost four months since our Wedding Day. We’ve had our Same Day Edit video uploaded on vimeo for a while now, but I just haven’t had the time to post it on here. Pregnancy has made me lazier than ever, and somehow I’m finding it hard to sit in front of my laptop for long periods. Finally dragged my butt to our computer room to post this. =D

This video was edited on the day and played at our reception.

Our Wedding: Photo Fusion Slideshow
Posted on: 2nd of April 2011 | Under: Life & Love, Our Wedding

Finally got around to uploading our wedding photo fusion slideshow.

We were surprised to see some video shots during the slideshow, because it was supposed to be all photos. We knew John, our main photographer, was taking a few videos during the day, but we had no idea he was going to edit it into the slideshow. What a pleasant surprise!

Posted on: 9th of March 2011 | Under: Life & Love, Our Wedding

Our big day took one whole year of designing, choosing, deciding and planning. Quite a long time, but it was nothing compared to over seven years of love, sacrifice and relationship building for us to be able to fully commit to each other and finally say our yeses.
