Jacob’s 1st Birthday Party

Birthday boy wearing his Baby Gap onesie from Ninang Rozel After how many months of preparing for the big day (just like a wedding in my opinion!), we’re finally done with the 1st Birthday Party! I couldn’t have asked it to go any other way. All our closest friends were there as well as family. Well, not all family. I wish my sisters and family in the US were here to celebrate with us, but that’s like reaching for the moon. Anyway, the night before the 26th, the caterer came over and left the tables and chairs already so that …

Somebody’s Turning 1 Tomorrow!

I am filled with joy and all sorts of other emotions! I can’t believe my Jacob will be a year old tomorrow! Thank God that Jacob’s fever is gone already. He’s had a fever for 2 1/2 days already. Took Calpol to bring it down. Now I pray that I don’t get sick next because that will be a disaster this weekend! Looking back, a year ago today we were on our way to the doctor’s office for my 40th week check up. I believe I was still stuck at 1 dilation. My doctor decided to induce me to help …

Preparing for Jacob’s 1st Birthday

His actual birthday is just a few days away and I am excited! I can’t believe my little boo-boo is turning 1! What the heck?! Where did the time go? I believe I was not sleeping for the most part of the past 12 months so how can he be a year old already? Hey little guy! Happy Birthday! Every day we see a new side of his personality. He’s even more silly now, he loves making faces and trying to make me or his Dad smile. It’s so adorable when he sneaks up behind me while I am sitting …

Family Friday

While I am busy working, my two favorite men are having fun in the other room. I’m sure it’s so much fun without Mom constantly watching over them. So Jacob has been saying words lately, like “Dada” “Daddy” “Aw” (He has accustomed this to dogs barking. Blame our helpers please 😐 ), “Daday” (the helper in our Aunt’s house who Jacob loves), and sometimes “Ma/Mom/Mommy” when he got hurt, is crying, wants me or milk. Well, today, he just wanted to rub it to my face how he loves calling someone else. In my defense, it is waaaaay easier to …

The Last Planner You’ll Ever Have

I’m posting this so late in the year in terms of planners coming out for 2012, but here goes! Being an OC the person that I am, I would have a planner or two by my side. As if having an iPhone or an iPad isn’t enough, I feel the need to actually jot down appointments and to do lists. I sometimes wonder why I even bother to be ‘techy’ but they are helpful especially since actual planners can’t tell you, “Hey! Your appointment is today!”. See what I mean?
