What matters most

We're barely on our 2nd week from moving in on our own and im beat...I never realized that it can be this tiring

Maybe that ability to relax comes with more time or stability. Or maybe it's a way to assure that you're on your toes. Either way, I love our home...I just suppose that I'm still not entirely comfortable being the Queen. Someday, I'll write about pulling in every single known direction that comes with handling and managing your own home and having a little teeny baby, but not tonight.

I'm so tired I can hardly see straight. I dont know how much longer i could juggle work and home responsibilities. Its good thing that this is my last week at work and come january we'll have ate salve to help out ate krisel with the chores at home and take care of the little one while im at work

The "home + work" load really took me by surprise...since our househelp is young she doesnt know how to cook yet so at night when i get home, i still need to cook dinner and i also prepare breakfast and lunch before going to sleep( and thats because i go to work early) sigh ...it can really get frustrating sometimes...and im really just too tired now to fully enjoy our new home and bianca and hubs...but then again, no matter how tired I am ,each night as i rock Bianca to sleep, I couldnt help but be overwhelmed with so much love and gratitude...I feel so blessed having my baby and my husband. and time and again i realized i shouldnt be complaining for our life is unfolding so beautifully, i guess i couldnt really ask for more...tonight, i shall remember to hug hubs for the wonderful life we have together.

happy holidays friends. i owe bloghops and tags pa, but once we have ate salve on board, i'll visit everybody's page na. pramis =)

Happy 6th month Birthday Baby Bianca

Happy 6th month Birthday Baby Bianca

Wow, darling you are a real grown up and still mommy hasn’t gotten enough of anything of you. At night, I’d still look at you in awe, taken aback by how much you’d grown, has it been already been 6 months? The memory of the first time I held you in my arms and the first time I saw you are still vivid in my mind…you were so tiny, Oh how you fit so perfectly in just a crook of mommy’s arm, and now, you’ve more than doubled your weight =). It’s amazing how fast you’ve grown.

Amidst everything that’s been going on, I’ve noticed how attached you’ve become to Lola B. and this makes me happy, you know how much I love Lola right? And aside from your dada and me, your Lola’s about the only one I wouldn’t mind sharing your love with =)…Mostly because your Lola has earned this love, for she was the one who was there to guide Mommy during my two-month leave, Lola was there for support and help, and she does this so silently…never crossing any boundaries, never too aggressive, subtly, that’s how she does it and lastly, Lola B believes that I too can be a mom, leaving enough space so I can be one…and I really just love her so…I hope that as you grow older, you’ll come to love Lola more and more, the same way I do…
oh and baby, when mommy needs to go to work at night, Lola sleeps beside you and takes care of you through the night, bait ni Lola no? And were just so lucky to have her

On you naman =)

Teething - I noticed last Friday(December 7) that your first tooth is about to come out, now I understand your need not only to chew on but more on to wrestle with your teether (and yeah you drool a lot too ahehehe, I first suspected that you were teething already some 3 weeks ago cause you were gnawing on your teether ever so badly but I read that on the average most babies have their first tooth on the 7th to 12th month, but I should have known that you are an advanced kid)
Sitting – yes, you can sit unsupported for a few second now, and babe am proud of yah
Babbling – mommy’s a little jealous, cause your babbled “da” first (November 17) and no “ma” yet…= (but of course I did enjoy listening to your babbling, keep it coming babe, I love hearing ah goos and squeals of delight from you

Last Saturday, December 8, we packed our things and moved back to QC…while we are all excited that we will finally be on our own… (READ: Daddy, Mommy and Baby Bianca ONLY) we are a little sad that we are leaving Lola, Lolo, Tita Joy, cousin Yang and cousin Toyang in Laguna…I know you’d miss Lola terribly…and Lolo would no longer be able to take you for morning walks…we’d also miss tita joys pupog kisses…and cousins (pinupunit na yerong) version of “ah moochi moochi moochi…ah woochi woochi wah”…and yeah we’ll even miss Ate Lita’s caring…sigh…mommy is all getting teary eyed thinking about all the people at HOME and yes I would miss them so…but we need to move cause we are a family now and we need to start building our own nest.

On the lighter side naman , you’ve also had your 2nd IPD shot last Saturday during your well baby check up, and hey, you only gained 0.2KG in three weeks…previously you were gaining about a KG every 3 weeks but now, you’ve only gained about a quarter of a kilo…and you know why??? Because you are kulit and likot already. But this is good…I mean, I like you active and full of life, really…You’ve also graduated from using new born formula…Dr. Rabanal already recommended stage 2 milk supplement…how cool is that? You know I actually had a silly smile on my face as your dad and I checked out at the counter after buying this stage 2 supplement. Ahehehe =)

You’ve also attended your first Christmas party, (sponsored by dada’s company) the kids were asked to wear super hero costumes and you came in as Super Bianca, and yes you were as charming as ever, wowing each of your father’s officemate. You simply are adorable darling 

Babe, remember that mommy loves you so much, so very much darling….so very much…and I vowed to myself that I will give you the very best that I can…you know I think of you all the time, I think of you when I’m at work, I think of you when I’m at home, I think of you at night and I think of you every morning, always in all ways babe, I love you, if life is a bit simpler and you’d find me next to you everyday, every hour of your life…

The Best(est) Christmas...

Yeah, Christmas is just around the corner and while I'd love to blog about the Christmas shopping and Christmas parties, I'd really just like to acknowledge the fact that hubs and I are really looking forward to this holiday season, all because of Bianca. Yes, Christmases and all the other holidays will never be the same again, we can look forward to a happier and merrier Christmas, espcially this year, as this is going to be Bianca's first Christmas.AND having Bianca alone is enough to convince me, all over again how good God is, and how blessed I am.

The latest pix of my uber sa cuteness baby Bianca

One Sunday afternoon,me taking pix and hubs making Bianca smile

On a sidenote: Let me just add that my sister just had her laser eye surgery, something we've always wanted for her =) . COngrats sis and enjoy your new 20/20 vision. Oh by the way, would like to remind those eyes..."little eyes be careful what you see, what you see, little eyes be careful what you see, what you see, for the Lord up above is looking down =). Happy holidays =)

Blogging Personality

Your Blogging Type is Pensive and Philosophical
You blog like no one else is reading... You tend to use your blog to explore ideas - often in long winded prose. Easy going and flexible, you tend to befriend other bloggers easily. But if they disagree with once too much, you'll pull them from your blogroll!

What is your Greatest Fear as a Mom?

Tag carnival by nice

Thanks nice for the tag...shucks i might get too emotional answering this =)

My Answer:
Yeah, like most moms, i fear too that i wouldn't be my daughters number 1...so like nice, i too, am taking extra effort in caring for my child after work and on weekends and every chance i got...no matter how tired i am...im not saying though that im just doing this to be her number 1...no, i just really love spending time with her...and if this would lead to her making me the number 1 in her life then i guess, time spent really paid off...

On a larger scale, being the human that I am and given all my imperfections, I fear that I(might) fall short on being a mom and not be able to bring out the best in my daughter...

There! good question nice =)
