Breastfeeding Update – 4 months

Breastfeeding Update – 4 months

The LO just turned 4 months and I’m happy to say that we’re still exclusively breastfeeding! I went back to work a month ago. I was very anxious preparing for my return. We don’t have a lactation room in our office and we don’t have a refrigerator. So I’m left with the option of pumping … Continue reading

Tala-isms (Part 3)

Tala-isms (Part 3)

In her Halloween garb. This chubby girl was dressed as a mermaid. Out of the blue, the little girl approaches me with a rather sullen expression on her face. Like she’s been thinking hard about something. And then she goes “Mommy, I have something to tell you (long pause). You have to use your heart … Continue reading

7th Month

7th Month

Two months awaaaaaaaaaay! I am two months away from giving birth! Can you believe it?! I’ve hit the 7th month and have officially soireed (stumbled would be the most likely term) into the third trimester. The anxiety is slowly building up! Realizations are starting to hit me like a ton of bricks. I am going … Continue reading

It’s a Boy!

It’s a Boy!

It’s confirmed! We’re having a little junior in the family! 🙂 Here’s the ultrasound that I had over the weekend. You can see his side view profile at the top part. He has a nice pointy nose.

Tala-isms (Part 1)

Kids really say the darndest things don’t they? Here are samples of just some of the shocking things straight from this chubby 3 year old’s mouth. (While watching Tarzan the Disney Musicale in Meralco Theater) “Mommy pagmagki-kiss na si Tarzan and Jane (when Tarzan and Jane are about to kiss), don’t close my eyes okay?” … Continue reading

She Lives Up to Her Name

She Lives Up to Her Name

Every time she picks up the mic, she sings like there’s no tomorrow. We can hardly understand the lyrics but I guess that doesn’t matter.   How can a three year old sing with such depth and emotion? It’s mind-boggling. Maybe next time I should post a video of her singing. Then you’ll see what … Continue reading

Stuck

Stuck

One morning, the little girl rolled out of bed, stood up and said “Mommy something’s stuck in my hair. Please “merove (remove) it”. I asked her to turn around and what I saw made me gasp. There it was staring me in the face…a large ball of clay. It took us all morning to take … Continue reading

Spontaneous Beach Trip

Spontaneous Beach Trip

The best trips are those which are unplanned. You know…the ‘get up and go’ type of trips which are as rare as a blue moon. Oh yes, especially with kids around. Luckily, we had one of those rare “blue moon” moments during the long weekend when our kid went to the province with her grandparents. … Continue reading

Valentine Fever

Valentine Fever

It’s that time of the year again folks! That one day in the year where lovers go all out with the PDA and profess their love for each other in the big bloody Valentine arena. I call it an arena because sometimes it feels as if couples are trying to one-up each other on the … Continue reading

An Unfinished Project

An Unfinished Project

One of the things that I managed to dig up while tidying up our bedroom is this old scrapbook. I remember working on this some two or three years ago and never got the chance to finish it (read: lazy). I honestly don’t know when I’ll ever get around to finishing this project. I really … Continue reading
