Dear Baby,

Happy birthday, my brilliant baby! You’re 17 months now! I vividly remember the time you’re just a small baby.

Wow. How time flies, really! I am thankful to God for giving you to us. I am forever grateful. Read the rest of this entry »

Dear Baby,

Howdy, baby!

Our AC isn’t OK yet. It’s been a month already that we’re dealing with this problematic air-conditioning unit at home! It’s a staggering 28 degrees Celsius at home! Uhh, it’s really hot. So sorry, baby, we’re situated in a country that is freakin’ hot. Read the rest of this entry »

Dear Baby,

Hello, baby! Howdy! You just slept an hour ago. You didn’t sleep in the afternoon. At dinner time, you just ate one small piece of chicken! Uh-oh. You must be very full from what you ate at lunch. You ate creamy macaroni, a different recipe from what you ate for the past two weeks. Read the rest of this entry »

Dear Baby: 69th natural letter for my baby

Dear Baby,

Howdy! It’s been quite awhile since I last wrote you a letter! Mommy has been very busy thinking and planning about international travel.

I’d like to congratulate you for not crying anymore when taking a bath. It’s been three days perhaps now that we don’t bath you at the lavatory. We’re back to using your big basin. Yesterday, you really surprised Mommy when you just went straight to your basin, with clothes and diaper on, and seated right there on the basin. You’d cry if bathing is already done; you’d still love to play with water.

Last Friday, we went to the beach. We brought your beach toys, and made mountains with sand. You were helping Mommy build the sandy mountain. A couple, with a baby, too, was watching you with envy because you were busily playing at the shore. You weren’t afraid of the seawater anymore. There was a time, too, when you gulped a few drops of seawater and you said, “namnam”, or yummy! Haha.

Thank God you’re eating well. You love to eat pasta, and not rice. :)

I think the weighing scale is acting up. I weighed you the other night, and it seemed you lost some weight? Oh no. You have to eat well, baby. You also have to sleep well. It’s been quite sometime now, maybe less than two weeks, that you don’t sleep (2x a day). All that you wanted to do is play. Daddy said that you deal with us (daddy, mommy, and yaya) fairly. You love to roam around the house (and get in touch with everyone) one at a time. 😀

A few days ago, you said the word, “shoe”, for shoes. WOW.

Your yaya teaches you everyday — that’s good we’ve got someone like her who can teach you when Mommy’s busy.

This is all for now.

Dear Baby,

Hello, baby!!!! Mommy’s so ecstatic to tell you that you gained 1kg in just less than five days! WOWOWOW.

How’s that? Before, 3 months would pass without a change on your weight. Just a new yaya did the trick in making you gain weight. Oh baby, I’m so proud of you. I’m thankful to God, too.

Your new yaya is heaven-sent. She is just awesome. You’re doing just great with her. You like her a lot. You’re now kissing her on her pants. Uh-oh. I think I already wrote that in my previous letter. Yesterday, you bit her! You bit your yaya in her left arm, and it put a mark on her arm (with your two big teeth) Tehee. The other night, Daddy was just telling me about biting, if you’re already biting any one. :)

Tonight, as you were playing inside your tent which I asked Daddy to setup (again), I saw that there was something different with you. Your godmother already mentioned about it last night re: your physical dev’t (pwera bati!), but, I just ignored it, until tonight. I am truly thankful to God. It doesn’t matter how much money we spent to get your new yaya. What’s important is that you’re growing well. I asked her to make rice water for you (for your milk) for three times now. It could have made a difference, I guess. She cooks our food on a daily basis, and you’d love to eat, too. Now, Mommy is more relaxed to feed you. Thank God!

Your yaya said that in all families that she went to, it’s only you who’s like that to her – who didn’t cry on the first meeting/first encounter, who looks for her every now and then (before going to sleep, you look for her; after waking in the morning you look for her; you look for her most of your waking time!) hehe. Well, it’s OK; you’re still the sweetest daughter that we have. You still love to kiss Mommy!

Yesterday, it was Mommy’s first time to go out alone via taxi! (WOWWOOW). I got no choice but to really leave you with your yaya. Thank God you’re OK, and that you didn’t cry when you woke up and didn’t see me. But when I arrived, you immediately went to Mommy. You still cry occasionally, in fact, most of the time when I’m at home, and you wanted to let me carry you. There was a time you were crying, looking for me at the bathroom — when I was here in our bedroom. :)

This is all for now.
