Watching Loewyn grow makes me sad! She’s growing too fast! Here she is with a balloon I got her as she’s so fascinated with them! Don’t worry, I unwond the string around her neck after I shot this. I didn’t notice till she ran off for her book at the end.
You might think it’s mean but it’s just a shot to me! I think Nora’s expressions when she cries are hilarious! I’m not making her cry just to take the shots, I just have the camera ready for when she gets upset over something.
Don’t worry, she doesn’t cry for too long! I just whip out a Hello Kitty sticker and it’s all smiles again!
I finally finished PSing the pics of Loewyn so here they are! Enjoy!
And my favorite one out of the bunch:
And where is Loewyn’s sister? Here she is!
Nora would hardly sit still for this portrait! She kept looking behind me at our neighbor mowing his grass. Plus, it was super muggy when I took this shot! 6pm and it was like 105F in heat index outside! We hurried to take the pics outside and get back in the house!
More of the sisters:
In case you’re wondering how Loewyn got her name, she is named after her paternal grandmother. Nora, her sister, was named after her maternal grandmother (my mom). Their paternal grandmother is Cambodian. So, to pronounce Loewyn’s name, it is “Low-win”!
Now for the few pics I took of just Nora during her 9 day stay:
I thought this was funny when she made this face in the mirror! Sadly, it didn’t focus very sharply!
Whew! That’s all of the pics!
My sister FINALLY went into labor today! Baby Loewyn was originally due June 9 but decided to stay inside until today! If she hadn’t popped out, she would have been induced on June 23, just one day before my own birthday!
She weighs 7.1lbs and is 19.1inches long! Labor was around 6 hours and took 5 pushes! Heh, Nora was in daycare when this happened so I’m sure she’ll be seeing her baby sister when she gets outta daycare around now.
Nora knows how to count to 5 in Tagalog and Cambodian! For those that don’t know, her mom is my sister and we are filipino. Nora’s dad is Cambodian!
In the background, our mom is talking. Yes, her name is Nora too as little Nora is named after her! Also, my sister is 8 months pregnant here! Another baby girl due in June!
