If you’ve ever spent 24 hours with a newborn, you’ll understand why this announcement is late. But for all those wondering, she is finally here! Our little one rocked our world when she flew in like a shooting star on August 8 when I was 38 weeks and 6 days into our pregnancy.
How was the birth and the month so far? I think I’ll let our little one take over from here…
Hi, everyone! My name is Aya Marikit Bituin. I was born on 08-08-19 at 5:20am via emergency CS. My mom labored at the hospital from 12am to 4am and then decided to get an epidural because she couldn’t take the pain at 5cm dilation. After that, they couldn’t find my heartbeat and when they did, it was down to 60. ☹️ Mommy was rushed to the operating room at 5am and it was baby out at 20 minutes later! They called Daddy after and so here is our first family photo together.
I am now one month old! It feels like it was only yesterday when Mommy was laboring at the birthing room with songs from “The Worship Initiative Vol 17” (Goodness of God, Lean Back, It is Well, Touch the Sky, New Wine, etc.) playing in the background. Mommy and Daddy knew each wave brought me closer to them. And now, the three of us have been together for one full moon already! 🌙 ❤
What have I been up to this past month? Well, aside from boobies galore, sleeping galore, crying galore, and pooping galore, I spend my mornings listening to Bethel TV and afternoons watching Mommy watch YouTube and Netflix. I hate baths but I love our bouncy ball. I love listening to Daddy sing! My favorite songs are “You are My Song” and “10,000 reasons”. I vocalize everyday so I can hit high notes like Daddy does! Hihi 🎶
I am excited to keep on growing! 🌟

As I’ve posted in my Twitter account (Marikit still speaking): “One month of life for me; one month of sleeplessness, sore boobies, unkept hair, quick bathroom breaks, and hurried meals for mommy! Yey!”
But, honestly speaking, it was a beautiful first month. Anything for you, little one… ❤
