Was looking around for a nice strap for my camera but couldn't find any available here in KL. The one that I found and really liked cost about RM200 plus.

It was different from the usual black straps that comes free with purchases of camera, but not so different that I was willing to part with that kind of money for. And so, I continued my search.

You know how went you visit a site and it comes up with a list of links related to the site you're on? Well, I went onto eBay to see if the strap I liked was selling for cheaper but it was still the same price, and underneath it there was a whole list of related links and one of them was 

It's a website selling only camera straps, all personally designed and custom-made by the owner of the site itself. 

And I found soooooo many that I liked!
The designs were soooooo much nicer.
AND the prices were also sooooo much cheaper!

So I bought myself 2 straps.
As a delivery present to myself.
I calculated the dates, and knew that I would be receiving it a few days after I gave birth.

And true enough, about a week after Dylan and I were discharged from the hospital, I received a parcel in the mail. It was from Canada.

My camera is totally rocking it's new look.
And I'm totally loving my cam's new look.

And both straps PLUS shipping cost me only RM180 plus.

So it's almost 6 days since Dylan joined our little family and he's been a joy to have around. No doubt the day and night feeds, the pooping and the changing of a million diapers a day has tired both SK and I out but we're not complaining.

In fact, so far Dylan has been a pretty easy baby to handle. He wakes for his feeds and when he has had enough, he sleeps for 3 hours, allowing me to take my shower, have my lunch, feed Renee her lunch and even some extra time just to sit back and relax a little. I hope i didn't jinx it by blogging about it.

What does tire me out emotionally to no end is the juggling of balancing out the time and attention spent with both my children.

Dylan is a baby. Obviously he needs my attention more. But Renee is also feeling slightly left out. She's been extra sticky and cheeky, craving for that attention that was all hers once upon a time ago.

And I try so hard not to do anything that might make her feel even more left out. Whenever I'm done with Dylan, I try to spend time doing things with her. And when she gets cranky and wants only me and nobody else, I try not to snap at her or scream at her or tell her to go to daddy/nana/kung kung/etc because like I said, I do not want her to feel like Dylan has taken me away from her.

She's a good girl. She helps me while i change Dylan's diapers by soaking the cotton balls for me and passing it to me when asked. She kisses Dylan off and on at her own free will, she snuggles up to him when he's asleep and she's so proud to tell people that Dylan is her baby brother.

So i do what i can to make her still feel loved and part of the family.

It's taking a toll on me but this juggle is worth it.

As of Nov 18th, 2011, my status has been upgraded once yet again - Mummy 2.0

It's now 5.30am and I'm up feeding my newborn baby boy, the second child God has blessed us with.

I've forgotten how wonderful it feels to be holding my very own newborn baby and what joy it gives. To actually imagine that this little baby was formed inside me, it's just such an amazing feeling that words cannot describe.

This little wailing creature has only been in my life for less than 24 hrs and yet, I already know that I will sacrifice my very own life just for him.
