It has been two weeks since Sophie Albert and Vin Abrenica welcomed their daughter Avianna Celeste they dote on as "Baby A."

The couple looks back on the day their "little princess" was born.

Avianna was one of the "biggest" babies born in the hospital that day.

Sophie recalled her last few check-ups with her doctor before her due date: "What happened was 37th week check-up, I was told by na she was already 8 pounds.

"On my 38th week check-up, we were told that she's already 9 pounds."

Vin then chimed in, "9.2 pounds."

Because her baby was "big," Sophie was advised to have a C-section instead of a normal delivery.

The new mom remarked, "...I was not expecting [for a C-section]. I was hoping to be able to deliver normally, but whatever will get her to this world safe."

Day of birth

The baby was born on March 15, 2021.

Her dad Vin, who dutifully documented her arrival, was very excited upon seeing Baby Avianna for the first time.

But excitement quickly turned to high anxiety as Avianna had to be kept in the NICU (Neonatal Intensive Care Unit) for a while.

Vin related in the vlog, "Grabe, ang hirap malayo sa kanya. Kasi nakikita ko parang nanghihingal siya.

"Minsan okay paghinga, minsan hindi. Kailangan nasa NICU muna siya, kailangan siya tutukan, under observation.

"Simula nung nahawakan ko siya, ang sarap niya titigan, alam mo iyon? Kahit buong araw kayo magtitigan. Ganoon pala iyon."

Sophie explained later in the video that Avianna's oxygen levels were low.

There was also water in her lungs, which doctors said were "normal" since she was a big baby and was delivered via C-section.

Thankfully, Avianna didn't have to stay long in the NICU as her vital signs stabilized soon enough.
