Dear Baby:

Howdy, baby! I hope you get well soon. Your nasal mucus has been pestering you for over 5 days now. It must be because of the caretaker; he grabbed you without considering that you’re still a baby. He doesn’t know how to handle a baby. I think the weather is also a culprit. But usually your nasal mucus doesn’t last that long. I hope your appetite will get back soon so you’d have a strong immune system.

Other than that nasal mucus, you’re fine. I am sure that time will come wherein you’ll hit your growth curve. For now I am just happy that you’re perfectly doing all right. Read the rest of this entry »

Dear Baby,

Hello baby! Mommy had real fun this afternoon with you (wah, although you didn’t eat what Mommy prepared). :)

It was so funny, really, when you mimicked me in picking my nostrils! Haha. Mommy thought you didn’t see me, but, it was already tooooo late. There you were, picking your nose, too, while looking down at Mommy. Cool. Ooops, I should really be careful with what I am doing. I hope you’d get to see all the good ones from adults around you.

Mommy was in cloud nine, too, when I heard the word “apple” from you – without any difficulty. You flashed your smile when you saw that I almost shouted for joy after you said that word. WOW. You’re awesome, baby. Soon, I’d be talking with you a lot of things – in English. It seems you do understand words in English than in any other languages (Filipino, Arabic) and dialect, too.

We also had our lesson via your blackboard. I was really amazed when you also got the pen I was using and started to act as if you were writing on the board. You wanted to open the pen; glad you weren’t able to – was afraid that you might put the tip again into your mouth after quite some time. :)

This is all for now. It’s too dark here in our computer room. Mommy needs to rest to get some energy for tomorrow’s moments with you.

iloveyou,

mommy

Dear Baby,

Hi baby! Get well soon! Mommy’s not used to seeing you with watery eyes and runny nose. I wonder why you suddenly got colds. It’s maybe because of the weather – 42 degrees Celsius outside? We went out for two days in a row. You must be very tired, baby. We decided not to go to Church tonight so you can rest your body. I hope that by tomorrow, you don’t have runny nose anymore.

I want to applaud you for being an intelligent baby. I was wiping your nose and then I put the cloth in front of you. I saw that your nose needed to be wiped again. I just told you to wipe your nose. You got the cloth and wiped the nasal mucus! WOW. I can really depend on you now – actually, ever since, you are a self-reliant baby.

Thank you, baby, for helping us improve on our parenting and baby care skills. We’re very sorry that it took us a hard time to finally be awakened. We’re sorry that sometimes we forget that we have a baby at home to take good care of, to make everything clean, to make everything smooth as possible – although we have been trying to make it at least perfect as possible – but there’s no such thing. But we will always persevere, baby. We will always make a way to improve everyday. Thank you for bearing with Daddy and Mommy. That incident about the cockroach won’t happen ANYMORE. We promise.

How was Daddy’s father’s day last 20th? Awesome! And yes, speaking of awesome, you now speak that word – awesome! We didn’t go out to celebrate father’s day. You played “football” at home with Daddy. He’s one lucky, happy guy in the world! He was in tears, really. You really played it well, huggie! You just know how to play while Daddy doesn’t…hahaha!

This is all for now, baby. Mommy’s hand is inflamed.I just took a quick time to write you a letter after ironing Daddy’s clothes – although I didn’t finish ironing the remaining two long sleeves.

iloveyou,

mommy

Dear Baby,

Howdy! You’re sleeping as Mommy writes this. You must be very tired from crying! You cried because you didn’t want to eat and Mommy was trying to let you eat some more. Mommy prepared your baby food (chicken and rice) via the blender we bought last night. I really hope you’d have some appetite now.

You’re at the stage where everything is a big, big No. Sigh.Glad that after sometime, Mommy was able to cut your fingernails. Uh-oh, your fingernails are longish – as usual – you won’t let Mommy or Daddy cut your fingernails.

The other night we bought you a lot of clothes at Marks and Spencer’s, and some books, too. From now on, we’ll buy majority of your clothes and books at M&S’s. Good choices and good price, hmmm, actually, just the same with Mothercare’s. We also bought two dresses last night at Carrefour -cheaper by 50% than M&S’s. But, I love the styles from M&S’s more than Carrefour’s.We also bought your shoes at Guess. Guess would be on sale today by 20% but opted to buy the shoes last night since the discount would just be forfeited with our fare. We don’t have the driving license yet. It’s now being processed. I hope Daddy would get it soon.

Mommy needs to help Daddy clean up our mess. Glad that we bought a new vacuum cleaner last night – our third vacuum cleaner in two years! This time the new vacuum cleaner is enough to unearth every mess you throw on the carpet. Bring it on, baby. Haha. You’re really good at throwing your baby food on the floor, your toys and books on the floor, and more. :) It’s all right. Childhood happens only once. I remember taking  a video of you while you’re throwing your food – was it pasta – on the floor. It was a real mess – from your face, to your high chair, to your dress, and onto the floor. No worries there. You’ll just outgrown it. :)

This is all for now.You’re now awake; we just heard you.

iloveyou,

mommy

Dear Baby,

Hello my adorable, gorgeous, gifted baby!

Awesome, you’re asleep as Mommy writes this letter. I was supposed to write you this letter last night, but, I was too preoccupied with a lot of our messes here and there! Hahaha. Uh-oh, no problem with that, baby. I love to deal with your messes everywhere around the corner of our house.

What prompted me to write this letter (wow, Mommy has been writing you natural letters everyday!) is that I wanted to tell you what you did at the kitchen (mind you, it’s gross, baby!) while Mommy was cooking. I just stepped out of our kitchen for a few seconds and when I got back, there you were in front of the garbage can, getting the spoiled left over pasta!!!! Ugggh! I was really taken aghast!

Mommy didn’t think you’d go inside the kitchen. Usually, you’re satisfied just looking at what Mommy’s doing by just standing near the door – that’s it and nothing else. But ahhh, I underestimated you. I forgot when the cat is away, the mouse will play! Hahaha.

I immediately got you up, washed your mouth with water, rinsed it thoroughly and smelled your breath if the stinky pasta was still there. Good thing you weren’t able to eat or bite the pasta!

Last night, we all played inside our blanket. Daddy and Mommy were already too tired to keep the blanket up, but, you still loved to play. You started crying because no one wanted to play with you anymore. Wow, you have so much energy, baby, even in the middle of the night.

Oh, I have to stop writing this letter. You’re now here in our computer room. You went here silently; I thought you’re peacefully sleeping in our bed. :)

This is all for now.

iloveyou,

mommy
