This smile, charming isn’t it? He is generous with his smile, mostly with mama only.
I was told its a birth mark, strawberry mark to be exact. Well, I have learnt about this terminology only 3months ago. It was something new to me. But it doesnt bother me much despite I was told it could grow bigger.
Why not bothered? Is that the attitude a mom should have? Well it depends. We have bigger worry back then, something greater than merely worrying of his appearance. At 1m immunization, doc hushed M&J during the check, my heart sank. She was listening to Nathanael’s heart beat like something wasn’t right. And I was given a referral letter.
I only discuss it with hub… we couldn’t accept it at first, mainly cause he look so healthy. Only thing was he sleeps so much, (I m not bragging, I would brag about it if there were not letter, and doc never mention the heart murmur thing) he sleeps so much that I and hub starts to worry, was it really his heart has problem hence he sleeps so much?
.ding dong for a month, finally we decided to go ahead get him checked just to be sure, just to be safe.
Reached there, register&weigh him.
At 3months12days old
Waited 2hour only see doctor. Before hearing his heart, paed cardio said she didnt hear anything abnormal. We were relieved by a little… hoping for best.
Nathanael was fantastic during the ECG. NO FUSS AT ALL! Praise the Lord!
Me: well, so long you are healthy my baby, thats all that matters
