i feel forgotten

Dear blog,

How do you do? It’s been a long time. I hope you can still recognize me.
I used to be your close friend. But now, seems like I have forgotten you. I was missing in action. Sorry if I did.  I was just too occupied with so many things in life – work, friends, family. I know how it feels and it’s painful but life must continue.

Oh speaking of family, you’re asking me how are they doing?
They’re good. Kids are happy and big now and they fight everyday.

My little boy is 1 year and 7 months old now. While my girl is 5 years old now and she hate-love his brother (you know what I mean here).

I miss posting pictures of my two beautiful kids here and documenting random memories of them. Honestly speaking, I miss blogging here! I miss sharing my simple and imperfect life along with my beautiful kids. Why? because time machines are not real and we can never turn back times. So let’s treasure our beautiful past and enjoy the beautiful present.

Little Achiever

I can’t believe Janine survived her first school year. Now, I’m a proud mother to this little achiever. I hope she’ll learn more in the next school year. Good job baby girl. Keep it up!

Lucky 7

It’s been seven months already since I gave birth to you my boy. Seven months of sweet kisses, warm hugs, lullabies and lots of love.

I’m a proud momma for I have exclusively breastfed you for 7 months (I thought I would never survive that) and this tiny body of mine won’t get tired of giving you more care, attention, love and nurturing. So I hope you continue to be strong, healthy, joyful, sweet and loving boy to us. I love you lil bud.

Troubled kite

Flying a kite is one of the most wonderful outdoor activities for kids in their childhood days  and I can attest that myself because I’ve enjoyed it when I was still a kid. When kite season comes, I can still remember how I begged my father to make one for me so I can play with other kids too.

Last day, my 4 year old daughter asked me to make a kite for her and my reaction was like, “Oh! Seriously?” Actually, I didn’t expect that she’ll be fascinated with kites too (just like me before).

At first, I told her that I won’t do it because I honestly don’t have any clue how the materials are put together to make a good kite. But despite being sooo clueless, I still tried it because she’s being so demanding that day.

and here it is…


Looks REALLY horrible right? And I am so embarrassed. When my husband came home, he saw it and of course he laughed at it. He said that it’s much more like an abandoned boat than a kite.

And because it didn’t turn out well, I just told my daughter to ask her Lolo (grandpa) to make a kite for her. Good thing, my father is still good at making kites.

And it looks simple, clean and nice.

Now my daughter is happy with her first kite.

The delayed poop business and the short hair

We suppose to attend Nicole’s christening (Che-che’s daughter) yesterday, only if Andrei did his poop business. Yes, I am talking about my ‘lil bud’s poop business here. Andrei hasn’t poop yet and it’s more than a week already. He seemed fine (physically) he eats and urinates as usual and I don’t see any undesirable symptoms of discomfort but it still worries me. Hey Andrei’s poop! When are you coming?

FYI: Andrei is exclusively breastfeed



and oops… I also had my hair cut short yesterday. The last time I had hair like this was during my sophomore year, I think that was 2003.


Update (Jan 28): Yepeey! The poop finally came out yesterday evening and it’s exactly 9 days straight. I feel relieved now. Thanks God.

My last blog post was on July 10th. That day, I officially shared to my (blogging) friends my baby boy’s first picture (his ultrasound image).

I can still remember how happy I was when the doctor announced that we’re having a beautiful baby boy. It’s a dream come true for me to finally have a girl and boy in our little family. A simple contentment that makes our house a home.

The picture you see on the left side is my 3 months old ‘lil bud and he’s totally the new cutie of the house. We joyfully welcomed this cute little guy into this world on 30th of September at 6:50 am.
