Dear Baby,

Hello! It’s been a while since I last wrote you a letter. Mommy has been very busy over the past month. Election is over. It was a tough moment back home because Papa didn’t win. The journey was worth it! God is good. Everything happened for the best!

Now, I’d be able to focus more on you. How are you? I hope you’re just doing great. As Mommy writes this, you’re in our bedroom while Mommy writes this letter in our living room. :d I hope to finish this letter before you finally sense that I’m not near you.

You’re exactly 1yr 1mo 17 days old! Whoa! How time flies, huggies! I wish you’d gain more weight and add more inches in your height. Mommy’s quite worried but you seem to eat well these days. As your doctor told Mommy and Daddy, it would take a while before you can adjust to your growth curve because you were born a little bit smaller than a regular-sized newborn. Anyways…for as long as you’re way ahead on your mental development and you’re a very happy baby, all is well, baby.

Mommy introduced to you the DVD Your Baby Can Read. Oh, boy, how you learned fast in imitating the actions there. Now, you know how to do the actions, “arms up, arms down, open your mouth, where’s your nose, wave” even when you don’t see the actions or when I tell those words to you. I thought you don’t seem to pay attention to the screen because you seem to move around a lot (in your walker) when you watch the DVD. But when it comes to mimicking what has been said on the DVD, you’d boast it by showing your actions to Mommy and Daddy. Good girl!

Mommy wished she was able to introduce it to you when you were just a month old. Perhaps, you’re probably now reading a book. :) Just kidding. I’m not rushing you, baby, because I know that you have a great sense in picking things up quickly.

Was it last week when you ate raw kangkong and chew it as fast as you could? Mommy was too late to get it. Glad you’re OK then. :d

Two nights ago, Daddy, Mommy, and you were facing the mirror. You were at the center. Oh, how you love it when you see us that way, having a group hug, dancing all together. You feel so loved, baby. Daddy and Mommy wouldn’t forget that night wherein you blinked your eyes for several times when Daddy and Mommy said, “oh, nay..” Your cuteness lingers in our minds. You’re such an adorable baby.

Wow. You seem to know how to really use the phone. You’d call up Daddy at the office and talk endlessly with him over the phone, as if you are really telling him stories about your day. Hehe. You’re also quite adept at using Mommy’s Imate phone, oh, you’d use any other materials to “write” on the screen of the phone. You seem to be very attentive at how things are being used! How did you know that you could write on the screen of the phone? And with the other mobile phone where it wasn’t touch screen, how did you know where to put the charger on that phone?

Uh-oh, you’re also fond of turning off the power when Mommy’s busy at the laptop. You’d look at Mommy afterwards after you’ve sensed that the power is already off, waah, to mommy’s horror.

Yesterday afternoon, it was to Mommy’s hearty laugh when I heard you said a loud, “naaaay”. Hahaha. I saw that you were taking a few steps on your own and you were kind of afraid of falling on the floor. I really laughed so hard because that expression is, really, so Filipino. Nothing wrong with that. It’s just that Mommy’s so amazed to hear it from you. Hahaha.

You’d love to walk, Mommy can sense that, but you’re still too afraid. Now, you don’t walk on four knees anymore, I mean, your knees aren’t touching the floor anymore, but only your hands. Daddy said, like a monkey! You “walk” so fast, really, that you amaze us with your speed.

Last May 8, I remember, glad I was able to write it somewhere, when Daddy gave you your milk, he asked you to say “thank you”, and oh, boy, you really said it in your most sweetest tone.


You’re a lovely, baby, and so smart, too. Mommy’s thinking of giving you a new nickname. Haha, for the 3rd time. Uh-oh. I really like the name “Aleka (Alika)…How about that? It would be your choice, baby. Maybe, when you’re old enough to choose your own nickname, please do so.

Till here and more letters next time!
