I started reading a story book for my precious son since he was 3 months old, he enjoyed and loves it very much, i know at that age, babies doesn't understand it yet but the sound of your soft voice is soothing to them, its an important stimulation too, when you read a book, they will see the illustrations, they will be familiar with the shapes, numbers, colors and letters. He will learn to listen, memorize, and helping his vocabulary too, i know he's too young to learn how to talk yet but early as possible is the better, reading aloud will stimulate their hearing. According to the author of kidshealth.org site that i stumbled upon, it says there that hearing words helps to build a rich network of words in a baby's brain. When you start early, babies will talk early too and loves book and will carry it until they grow old.

was super tired today, i cleaned the entire house and did extra things too...if mama and papa knows about it, i'm pretty sure they will be proud of me. Gosh just super super tiring! at times like these, i always remember my life back in the philippines, i grow up in a family were my parents worked in the government and earning fairly decent salaries, over the years, maid come and goes, though we had somebody to take care of the house, us (kids) are well trained to do things around the house mostly every weekends, i remember, when we were in elementary and high school, we had to pull weeds or scrub the floor in exchange for something like if we want a new clothes or accessories, but most especially if we wanted to watch a movie. One thing, my parents made sure that my twin sister and i knows how to cook, infact eventhough we had somebody to cook, we still the one in-charge in the kitchen, it's our responsiblity....excluding washing the dishes though...hmmmm, i guess thats it! the reason why i hate doing the dishes until now is because i'm not used to, just once in a while when maid is on day off, when i was a kid......now, i appreciate more what my parents did to us, we know how to value money, if we want something, we have to earned it first, and now that i'm married, away from my family and relatives, i do everything around the house, no maid or relative to lend a hand, including washing the dishes, shockssss!!! the first time it was hard, it was a shock, i dont deny, i cried, but it was just a short time, with the way my parents trained me, it never really a hard time for me....but i still admit, for almost 2 years now, i still hate washing dishes hehehe.....
i want my son to value money, he has to do errands to earn it.... be responsible, respectful and knows God and be the center of his life....i will do my very best to instill to my son what i have learned from my parents.....
To mama and papa, i love you so much, thank you for the wisdom you've shared, for everything you've done to us, you made us a better person.....I love you!

I really miss my family back in the philippines, i've been away for almost 2 years now...i miss the bonding of the family at dinner time everyday. My twin sister and i usally take turns in cooking especially for supper, we just love to cook. Every occasion at home like birthdays and holidays or simply just for fun, i am usually the one incharge in the kitchen, but when my twin sis took the cuisine lesson, i was just simply her side kick then, but it was fun, she taught me everyting she knows, lucky for me as its free of charge hehe....i remember, if ever we are out and tasted yummy food, we tried to copy and try to cook it at home, sometimes invent new recipe for the family too...believe it or not, i still have my recipe i've learned in my high school cooking lesson....me and my twin sister always had fun in the kitchen, we're perfect partners in the kitchen as we shared same passion.....But now that i'm away, i still have the passion in cooking, i love watching food network as one of my past time and trying some of the recipe i've watched.

We had a visit from our doctor last week for Douglas routine check-up, the doctor was so amazed because Douglas can hold his head steady and turn sideways now, and he said that Douglas has a strong legs too for 14 weeks because he can support his weight when i tried to hold him and let him stand in his feet. What amazed me the most is he loves to talk now, i mean when you talk to him he will respond to you by smiling right away and tried to talk back too, well a baby talk of course. Oh its just a heart warming 'coz he's smiling more often now, and it seems he is fascinated with peoples faces.

boy oh boy! time fly so fast and babies growing alot faster than i thought. At this time, just saying a word "hello" to our bundle of joy, he is staring and smiling back at us. With that sweet toothless smile and pretty eyes truly melted our hearts. He is trying to imitate the word hello now by just saying "ow"...gosh its just so cute! He is more responsive and looking at colorful things around him now, he loves playing with his hands and sucking it too. I remember a month ago he was so cranky and fussy and wants to be carried or hold him most of the time, we used to call him Mr. instant gratification because when he is hungry or has wet diaper or just want me to hold him, he wants it right away, he will cry out loud if we wont be there and meet his needs right away....now, i'm just so glad that he changed, he loves his swing and sleeps mostly for almost whole day now. I can have a nnice bath and can clean and do some stuff around the house too. I'm trying to take photos and videos of him as much as possible every week, babies grow fast, infancy is just a short time, i wanna capture and treasure every moments of my little one's developmental milestone.

I remember when i reached 39 weeks i asked my doctor to induce me as i wanted it to be over and done with, i got tired of all the aches and pain and the heaviness of my tummy and not to mention my awful diet and injections that i gone through everyday... but my baby has another plan, he wants to stay a couple of weeks more, the ob cant induce me as my cervix wasn't started to effaced and dilated yet, its risky to my baby, so i have to wait again.....i'm just so thankful with my husband, my cousin Gina and my friends who always there for me, guiding and advising me all throughout my pregnancy....this is my choice, so i have to endure all...thats why i call my baby my miracle as i prayed and asked him from God.....after i gave birth, i just realized that the sacrifices i did is just the beginning.......but happy and proud embracing the motherhood......welcome to this world my precious one! I love you so much!
