Surprise!

Just checking in. It's been over a year since I last posted. I celebrated another birthday last week!
And in a few weeks.....

Birthdays and other things....


This week I celebrated my 31st birthday. 31 years...where did time go? I feel like everything just passed me by. I had plans about my life, plans about where'd I'd be at this age. I had plans of making it big in the corporate world. But I am not in control. I thank God for giving me an accepting heart - to trust in His plans, to accept them, and to enjoy them!

This birthday is very much different because this year, I celebrated my birthday with my hubby and my daughter. It was touching to receive a card honoring your hard work as a parent. I cried when I saw my daughter's name on the card (written by Hubby, of course). It feels good to be appreciated :)

On another note, summer has finally arrived here in the Middle East. It's soooo hot outside. Last month, I could still go out and walk to the supermarket. Now, I can't even step out the door. The air is so hot and heavy and thick. I miss winter.

To top it all, we're moving apartments and I have two weeks left to pack everything! Aaaarggghhh. These are the moments when I wish I have a nanny who can look after my baby.

Sorry if my thoughts are scattered as I write this post. I have a few minutes to myself so I decided to blog for a while. The next posts would have more substance (hopefully). Just wanted to express myself so I turned to blogger. :)

Have to say goodbye for now and must attend to the task at hand - boxes and bubble wrap, here I come!

On being a Mom

My friends would always tease me that I am the perfect Mommy. Girls dream of their wedding day, I dream of becoming a Mom. I praise God that my husband and I have been blessed with our little angel. My life has changed.

I enjoy being a Mom but I have to admit that there are days that I just want to scream my head off and leave. I never realized that taking care of a baby would be a full time job. Yes, I have waited for this moment but I was imagining raising my baby in Manila where help is easy to find. Living abroad, taking care of a baby, taking care of a husband, and running the household....it just isn't easy. But when these moments kick in, when I just want to cry, I look at our little Pi-so (that's chick for Ilonggo, she's our little chick!) and when she looks at me with her big eyes and gives me that beautiful smile, my heart melts and I whisper "I'm sorry" for thinking about giving up.

Being a mom now, I have new found respect for housewives everywhere. Working moms, stay at home moms - all mothers! It doesn't matter if you have a nanny or a housemaid to help you out. I think it's all the same. When I look at Sofia, I still get teary-eyed sometimes - to be responsible for a person's life, this little baby that depends on you so much - it is a gift from God and I am forever humbled that He has entrusted me with this precious gift.

hello 2010!

It has been ages since I last blogged. I have been so occupied with my wife and mommy duties that I completely forgot about this blog. Plus, I have been busy uploading pictures in Facebook too!

I missed blogging and writing down my thoughts. I rarely find time to sit down in front of my laptop as the little angel is awake during the day longer than when she was a newborn. She turned 4 months this month. 4 Months! Time flies. I can't believe that I have been taking care of a baby for 4 months now, and still breastfeeding! Whew!

Here's a most recent picture of my little angel. Her smile just warms my heart. =)


I will try to regularly post once again, at least to update my family and friends about what's happening in our family =)

Super late post but anyway, Happy New Year everyone! Here's to 2010! This is OUR year!

Happy Birthday, Pangski!


Today, we celebrated hubby's birthday as a family (yipee!). It has been a great year. We thank the Lord for all the blessings....most especially for our little angel.

Here's the birthday cake that Sofia and I surprised Cesar with!

Look-alike niya yan!


And here's our little angel....she's growing up so fast!












I want some cake, Mommy!


i'm still alive!


I have been in hibernation for the past 2 months, mainly because we couldn't get internet in our new apartment here in Bah. So here's a quick post just to let everyone know that I'm still breathing and hopefully, by month's end, I'll be online!


God bless everyone! See you soon! =)
