a MoM and a BoY

My first born is already 3 years old. He knows so many things that impress me and his daddy.. Sometimes he does tricks and moves that aren't so common for children of his a age..

He absolutely brings sunshine at home.. He is one of our sources of joy and laughter! As everyone knows, we just had an addition at home - Shari..

I can say that we had a good preparation for the coming of our 2nd born. Big Daddy and I tried to prepare our first born - Job on being a big brother.. And now that Shari is here with us.. and she needs a lot of attention and care, big brother Job seems to be a little jealous.. Yeah -- and that's really a challenge for us, his parents to ensure that he feels that we don't love him less..

I wanna know your thoughts blogger friends, could you share some thoughts on how we would make our little boy feels that our love for him has not and will never change?!

Marriage Quote

Marriage is NOT a ritual or an end. It is a long intricate, intimate dance together and nothing matters more than your own sense of balance and your choice of partner..

Open Letter for my Man

Daddy,

At times...

I know i get a lil cranky..
I know i get a lil lazy..
I know i get a lil unreasonable..
I know i get a lil childish..
i know i get a lil demanding...
I know i get a lil impatient...
I know i get a lil pushy..
I know i get a lil bully....
I know i get a lil sensitive..
I know i get a lil impractical..
I know i get a lil stubborn..
I know i get a lil hard headed...

and I know I've been real bad...
and yet I'm still your FAVORITE GIRL..

That only confirms.. it takes a great man to marry me.. (-:

I LOVE YOU VERY MUCH and thanks for loving me at my worst!

Quotes

A successful Marriage requires falling in love many times... always with the same person!

3 Roles... ROLLED into 1

Being a Mom is the toughest and most rewarding job I never thought I'd have and I'd do for the rest of my life..

I am a mother of two who tries to joggle and manage things.. My first born, Job is now 3 and has so many needs.. He needs me to witness how he explores and discovers new things.. He needs me to support him in everything that he does.. clap and reward him for his little accomplishments.. He sure is one smart boy who likes to learn...

Our lil princess has just arrived.. "shari" as we call her, is one tiny lil baby who needs a lot of attention, care and love.. She cries when she's hungry and when she poops.. She cries when she's feeling cold and when she's needing arms to wrap her. and truly her smile is priceless!!!

I am also a wife.. A wife who has duties and responsibilities to her husband..I serve as his confidante, friend and partner.. I'd like to support him in every way possible. Ensuring that he still feels that he is the man, I chose to marry because i will love him for the rest of my life.. and that love is what we need to keep burning..I am also an individual.. I am an entity with needs.I have weaknesses to battle out.. I would stumble.. I would get tired.. I could fail.. I would get disappointed.. Life could be out of tune, at times.. .

But good thing I have the best people with whom I could get and regain my strength..

My Matt - hubby
My Job - you'll always be my sunshine!
My Shari - my lil princess

She hasn't arrived yet...

Its the 3rd of December.. I am on my 38th weeks of pregnancy.. I have been been off work since Wednesday last week, expecting to give birth anytime soon..

A lot of people have been texting and asking if I already gave birth.. The answer is NOT yet.. uh-huh and that's up until this very minute..

Last Friday, I went to my OB-GYNE to have my pre-natal check and was told that I am 1-2cm open.. but upto now, no pain of labor is on the way..

We are all excited to have our lil girl this month.. But I think we gotta wait for a lil bit more... and she sure is worth all the wait!!!!

To everyone who is praying for my safe delivery, my lil princess and my fammy... Thank you very much! Having an addition in the family is truly one great happiness that we are sharing to y'all..

New Stuff~ Wheeeeeeeeeeeee!

Its been a while since I got myself and hubby a new cellphone.. I was kinda disappointed the way it depreciates.. It depreciates like a melting ice cube.. sooo fast! Of course there were also a lot of stuff to consider... like set of our priorities, financial obligations.. family needs, tight budget and a lot more.. and so getting new phones took a backseat for quite a while... sigh...

The whining is over! I have decided to treat hubby and myself by getting us new cellphones.. Yey! Its not bad to treat ourselves once in a while.. I think.. (-:
I got myself a Nokia E66 and I got Big Daddy a Sony Ericsson G700.. Not a bad deal.. Agree?!

I have yet to discover how good these phones are.. and i sure will make a review!

But look how technology and style changed in time..Whew!

Here were the phones I used to own.. I really like phones that are kinda big and bulky while hubby likes slim phones..

Expectant Mom

As an expectant mother, I am so thrilled to see my lil princess who is arriving this December.. I can't measure nor describe my excitement.. Now that I am on my 30th - 31st week of pregnancy, planning is a very vital part of the process I'm in.. I just thought of creating a list of things that my baby would need once she arrives... I am very particular with some brands not because of fad nor status symbol but because i have tried, tested it and found it great!

Here's my list..

1. Stroller with car seat
2. Play pen with baby gym
3. Cabinet/Drawer
4. Sleep Positioner
5. Hypo-allergenic pillows/bolsters
6.Comforter
7. feeding bottles
8. milk dispensers
9. pacifiers
10. diaper cloths
11. diaper bag
12. walker
13. Bibs and Burp Cloths
14. Towels
15. Receiving Blankets
16. sterilizer
17. Bottle Warmer
18. Dry Rack Bottle Organizer
19. Thermal Bag
20. Bottle Brush
21. Extra Colic Nipples
22. Bath Tub
23. Baby Dresses/Body suits
24. Mittens
25. socks
26. baby shoes.....

and the list would probably just goes on and on and on.. Should I be forgetting important stuff, please let me know..

Should you also have suggestions on what other things to buy for my lil princess, which she'll need when she arrives, I'd like to hear 'em..

Many thanks!

2nd MONTH

The second month of pregnancy is a critical month in fetal development. Your baby goes from being a blastocyst to an embryo. Early on in this month your baby’s heart will begin to beat. First it beats slowly, then very rapidly, later in pregnancy the heart rate will slow a bit more.

In the beginning of this month it’s hard to tell which way is up on your baby. As this month progresses it becomes very easy to tell which end is your baby’s head is and which end is your baby’s bottom. By the end of the month your baby’s upper and lower limb buds will also appear. And the primordia of the liver, pancreas, lungs, and stomach are evident. While your baby is a girl or a boy, it is not yet apparent without genetic screening.

Your baby is now measuring between 8-11 mm from crown to rump (CRL). By the end of this month heart activity is always present on ultrasound. Toe and finger rays are present, though not quite enough for you to count yet.

> By the beginning of this period your baby has grown from about 1/4 inch long inside a beginning sac of amniotic fluid (bag of waters)

> Father's sperm has already determined your baby's sex

> Brain and Nervous system are forming

> Heart and Lungs are beginning to form

> Tiny spots for ears, eyes and nose are appearing

Catching Up

i didn't notice that the last blog entry i have here was in February 1st! Oh man! I should catch up on my blogging..

But no worries blogger friends, you didn't miss much of my where-abouts.. As a matter of fact, i wasn't really busy the past weeks, not until I realized that I got a lot of work to be done! Yeah, people tend to procrastinate.. and I am one of them sometimes.. darn! anyhow, here is a quick run down of my life lately...

> My fammy is doin' good.. Though Big Daddy caught the bad colds.. and he is passing it to everyone in the house!

> Big Daddy started on his new job last week of February.. So far, things are great..

> Lil kiddo is doin' okay.. He plays his tricks all the time which makes me crazy! hhahhaha!

> At work, we are running a contest for Sales.. and I am happy the way things are goin.. I am seeing great improvements from the people I am working with.. and I have a fantastic BOSS! Yey!

> I'm glad that I got in touch again with my friends abroad..

> The kiddo went to great events the past weeks.. We watched "Wanders" @ Casino Filipino, went to Manila Ocean Park, attended so many birthday parties.. and went to the mall countless times..

There are things that are not good as planned and expected but I am lookin' at the brighter side of it.. We can't have everything and we must be happy with little things that we have because for others they are HUGE!

That's all i have for now blogger friends!

What about you? How have you been?

Life is Beautiful

Who doesn't want to have somethin' better? Who doesn't want to get more? Who doesn't want to go higher? We all want growth.. We want things in better packages.. . we ask for red roses when we get white.. we sometimes, forget to value things that we have.. we forget to appreciate things that are in hands.. simply because we want more.. and probably that is human nature..

Its not bad to dream big.. but failing is part of life.. and we have to face and accept that sad truth! i had my share of failures and disappointments.. and i cried so hard and was broken! but am proud to say that it didn't get me completely..
After all, life is still beautiful!

how did you stand up and regain your strength and courage after a strong storm?

Share me your thoughts blogger friends..

Thursday Thoughts...

I have been a victim of criticism.. crab mentality.. Some peeps underestimated my capacity and never believed in my capabilities.. They always see me as someone who can't do a thing!

Never did they know, their criticism brought me to where I am at right now.. I was challenged to work hard and be somebody!.. T'was not easy.. T'was a struggle.. T'was a rough road! T'was not a good feeling.. But i tried to get out of the loop other people wanted me to be in.. FAILURE!

But thank God! He is in control of things!

Why can't other people just be happy for someone else's success?? just askin'....

We probably have different struggles in the past and was able to overcome it.. Share me your thoughts blogger friends...
