23 Jan 2006 – A Star is Born! Today marked another busy day for Ashley as she entertained a number guests with photography sessions. Truly, this princess is loved and adored by all as she is ever ready to pose for the camera and charm her subjects by flashing her royal dimples!

The many expressions of Ashley!
24 Jan 2006 (12 noon) – Finally, after spending 4 days at Mount Alvernia, it was time to check-out and take baby Ashley home. We had a really good stay at this hospital where all the nurses were very friendly and the food pretty good. Perhaps, the only minus point was that they didn’t have good beds for dad’s to sleep in (the first two nights were actually spent curled up in a chair)! Heh heh…

Collecting baby Ashley from the nursery. The noise in here is deafening!
Saying bye-bye with the nurse who regularly bathes Ashley. Zhiyi is in a wheelchair coz she nearly fainted due to the flurry of activity while checking-out.
The next few days will be pretty interesting as Zhiyi and I get used to taking care of the baby. Previously, all we had to worry about was feeding her as the washing up and changing of diapers were done by the nurses. If you see both of us with panda eyes looking absolutely exhausted and a little high-strung, do forgive us as we have to wake up every 2 hours to feed Ashley. Not to mention, Zhiyi is still feeling pretty weak and can’t stand for more than 1 minute!
