Please Welcome Baby K
2 days ago I just got back home from the hospital tired and happy at the same time – this time bringing a new addition to the Mulia family… our newborn baby.
Please welcome Adeline Kaela Mulia who was born on Thursday, 12 August 2010
Adeline is the baptism name (the baby is not baptized yet, but will be soon). Kaela is the given name, and Mulia is the last name.
Here are some pics of Baby K (by the way people also call Kaela Baby K):
And here are some videos:
(…please excuse the Indonesian language spoken in the videos )
Me and my wife Yen now sleep in different rooms – Baby K with her mom; I sleep in the other room.
Friends and family members who are already parents told me that this is the start of many sleepless nights. So to anticipate that, we decide to sleep separately in different rooms. This way I can rest well and replenish my energy so that I can work during the day.
(yes I still have to work on my online business)
Yen is having sleepless nights though, with the baby crying for milk every 2 hours. Other than that, the 3 of us are a happy small family
My work tasks have also increased ever since. Yen was helping me with customer service and some admin tasks before Baby K was born. Now I’m taking over some of her duties. I’m sure this shouldn’t be too long though. Once everything has settled down (including Yen’s increasing skills to take care of the baby), things should be back to normal.
I’m now starting to understand more the advantages of running an online business instead of working a 9-5 offline job. Yen was admitted to the hospital the day Kaela was born (Thursday 12 August). For 2 full days, I didn’t work on my business and yet it continues to make sales and provide income for me and my family.
Apart from that, I also have the luxury of choosing when I want to work. For example, yesterday (Monday) and today, I didn’t really do much work apart from answering some support tickets (which needed to get done to keep my business running).
I’m still so EXCITED with the presence of Baby K that I just want to spend time with her (even though all she does is sleep, drink milk, pee, and poop). Just watching her sleeping silently with her innocent cute look is enough to make feel happy and blessed…
Please welcome me and Yen to parenthood
