Stressful Weekend

Let's start Friday. We brought you to the Intelicare pedia to consult your noisy breathing. Since you're active (hyper even), do not have fever, coughs or colds, and the noisy breathing was not present at the time of consultation, we were advised to just observe you and salinase you at night.

Because Mommy was happy, we shopped for groceries while you ate a waffle while riding in the cart. Then I gave you some Yakult. Then we went to Mangan and you loved the fried cassava strips and then later, the sago't gulaman. Then you refused to come home with us because you loved dancing with the blinking Christmas lights.


Saturday, typhoon Ondoy came upon us.

At first, Pappie was texting me that he was entertaining you by letting you run after cockroaches as they seemed excited by the rains. And then, the other house started getting flooded and you were excited about it. So much so that you slipped twice in the flood.

When flood waters started seeping into our home, you were excited yet again and before I knew it, you had slipped for the 3rd time. What's worse, you fell face down and Mommy's head was pounding from the worry of you getting sick. What if you accidentally drank some of the water? How could we rush you to the ER?

After that, we refused to let you sand on the floor and it upset you so. The only thing that will stop the crying was walking with you all over the ground floor so you can ejoy the water being sloshed by our feet.

And when we finally allowed you to stand on the floor after the water was gone and we've cleaned it, you were absolutely ecstatic. I'd imagine you thought it felt like being allowed to walk again.


Mommy left you alone for a while to get your dinner last Saturday night. You must have gotten impatient and started playing with the door knob, accidentally locking yourself in. Tita Ninang panicked and started screaming and Pappie also panicked. Mommy wasn't really worried because although she knew you were scared, she also knew you were somewhere safe. Fortunately, because you're a relentless kind of person, you managed to unlock the door on your own.


You fell down the stairs at past 7 PM Sunday night. Good thing you were able to grab onto the railing and Mommy was able to catch your face as you fell so you really only hit your knees on the steps. You cried, but I feel mostly because Mommy screamed.

But all these things were not enough to make you listen to us. I think too much excitement has also made you more hardheaded than usual.

3rd Haircut

Picture will follow.

Anyway, you were sooo behaved at the parlor this morning darling. You just sat there, with your face so serious, not daring to move. You never smiled but you did wave goodbye to the one who cut your hair. And this is your cheapest haircut yet!!!

Next cut will be at the local barber's okay? :)

Little Drummer Boy

Mommy found this P35 board book at Booksale. Little Drummer Boy seems to really appeal to you, validating Mommy's intuition. You asked me to read it to you early this morning when you woke up. Then you went back to sleep again.

It's perfect for the upcoming Holidays as well.


You're loving Pappie's pasalubongs so much that I worry you might be getting spoiled for them. For two nights now, you'd eat your dinner fast because you wanted to get the chocolate and cake :)


Your grandparents and titos and titas all loved your Rockstar videos :) Lolo Indo is even asking for more and everyone's telling us to cultivate your natural interest in music :)

You also love Barney and Kidsongs sooooo much these days.

Weekend Updates

Youstartled a crew in MCDo whenyou came rushing out to greet me, without your father noticing that you've gone from the playground. You were even barefooted. And just before going, you bumped your head in the slide.


People at the Manila Book Fair thought you were a girl.


I bought you a new pair of shoes yet again. They only cost P200 anyway. And you were happy running after the remote control cars.


At Momsy's, you jumped from the bed to the floor without falling down. Several times. Your balance is really, really awesome for a 2-year old.


Everybody was amazed at your guitar-playing videos. Mommy should enhance your stimulation, Lola Auring said.


Ninang Ira did your hair in pigtails and you loooked exactly like Mommy. If ever you have a sister, that's how she'd look like!


Pappie couldn't bear NOT buying you that bubble gun. Now, we have to make our own bubbles so you'd have plenty to use.

The happiest something I want to document is the incident last night when I told you to get Pappie to read to you your Charlie Bird book. Not only did you remember that we took it down with you yesterday morning and that you hid it in your table, but you really knew which book I was referencing to.


You were delighted with your musical instruments chart. And also with your drum this morning.


You managed to get to your changing area by climbing over the chests. Mom was upset while you were doing it but Mommy cannot deny how limber you are.


We have a video of you playing with your guitar and improvising by tucking a hanger in your Pappie's luggage to use it as mic. Unfortunately, you were stark naked so we cannot post it on Youtube. Towards the end of the 3-minute video, one can distinctly hear you singing E-I-E-I-O :)


Your recent fave phrase is, "Mommy, see me" meaning, to look at you. :)

You pulled out the keys from your toy guitar... so you can insert one in the keyhole of our main door. :)


Thank you for accompanying Mommy to the doctor last Friday, baby. Mommy's chagrined by the fact that you licked the rails of my bed and got a nasty bite and ate up all the gravy in your Fun Shots that resulted in tummy troubles the following day... but all in all, and even considering you laughing at Mommy with her brown bag, you were a trooper!

Stress Eating

I think God somehow told you that you need to fill up on solids because something's going to happen to Mommy.

Yesterday, you woke up before 8 AM. You had porridge. While I was gone, you had two spanish breads, a banana and those Malaysian chips. When I got home, you were eating lunch of a bowlful of rice. And then you started eating the veggies on my plate and even nibbled on my chicken bones. And then you had breastmilk, of course, as you took your afternoon nap.

After waking up, you had KFC Fun shots (you ate an entire box yourself and even licked the gravy). Then yogurt. Then dinner or rice and veggies. Then a whole sundae.

Which was why you slept through the night and didn't require milk from Mommy.


Today, you had lunch and Yakult. Then you ate an entire apple. Later, you will have dinner and yogurt again (so you won't get constipated from the apple). Hopefully, you won't rage so much about not getting milk.

I'm so proud of you darling. And it hurts Mommy not being able to breastfeed you.


You also had milk and a cookie before I brushed your teeth. Yey.

Cutie Cousins

This pic was taken about two weekends ago. It always makes me feel all warm and senti when I watch you play and bond with your cousins. And you guys are really lucky for having these moments documented well.

Grow up friends, little ones, grow up friends.

Too Cute for Words

In the words of Momsy, you looked like you were going to go a-courting someone. :)

Curious Yakee

Wednesday night, as I was preparing your bath and Pappie was packing, guess who peed on the floor... and in the course of me getting a rag to wipe it up, dipped his fingers in the pee and tasted it.

Guess, Baby, guess. Clue: that little boy has a bump between his eyebrows right now from falling face flat on the floor from running after balloons.

Boat Ride

It's your first boat ride in an amusement place and someday, I hope you thank Pappie for being game because you both got so wet here. But you loved it. And we love you.

Bubbly Bunso

You ate an entire cob of corn again yesterday. And all this long weekend, people have marveled over your appetite, and the fact that you really like feeding yourself. You squashed and got so excited over Lianne's rabbits (KC and Chloe), kept staking your claim over the organ, kept making everyone laugh, kept dancing and singing and responding when you're not the one being talked to.

Momsy and Ninang Ira gave you your first licked bowl experience... it was a bowl of cocoa powder and butter or the fudgies that we were making. You loved it.

And you loved being able to wash your own hands at Momsy's, just by pushing a chair to get to the faucet.

And you ran like the wind all over Heritage Park, and enjoyed watching planes pass by, and entertained guests by dancing when a woman sang. And you looked so cute and wonderful in your outfit.

And lately, you're fairly content with short naps... but still really love napping in the car.

Mommy and Pappie couldn't have been more prouder.
