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.

Tala Turns 4

My little girl just turned 4. I’m still in denial that she’s no longer a toddler. At night when she’s asleep I smell the sweet scent of her hair, her skin…and to me, she still has that baby smell. I lovingly play with the little dimples on her chubby fingers and I cuddle her the … Continue reading

Last weekend, my kid’s school celebrated “Palarong Pinoy”. This was our second Palarong Pinoy (The first I blogged about here). Mr. D and I didn’t participate in the games anymore. Well, me for obvious reasons.  As for him, he had his hands full that day. I’ll tell you more about it later. This year, the … Continue reading

6th Month

Here’s the bump shot we took yesterday to document my 6th month. If I haven’t been gaining weight during the 4th and 5th month, I really turned things around and gained a whopping 8 lbs in just 4 weeks.  My doc was like “Okay Aims, I know I told you to gain weight but let’s … Continue reading

Manila Ocean Park

Manila Ocean Park

It was another fun weekend for the Diegos. We decided to take the little girl to Manila Ocean Park. Technically, this is her second time but she has no memory of the first time she was there. Note to parents: 2 years old is much too young to be taking your kid anywhere. They don’t … Continue reading
