in just 4 weeks, this little boy gained 3.08 pounds (1.4 kilos) and 3 cm in length (bringing his total height to a little over two feet). 😀 his diaper and shoe size is now Medium. he already outgrew some of his clothes + sleeps through most of the night + loves spending his mornings outdoors. and i am soooo in love with him.
happy 2nd month, my sweet boy.
when I got sick when was a little girl, my mama would take me on a kalesa ride — she said that this was her guaranteed cure for whatever was ailing me. true enough, I would immediately get well soon after that. and even when I wasn’t sick, I still loved riding a kalesa around town. I wanted to share this experience with Isa so I made her a promise weeks ago that I would take her on a ride on her birthday. one of the wonderful things that I love about living in the province and especially my town is that there are lots of things from my childhood that my children would still get to enjoy and experience (simbang gabi, bisita iglesia, climbing trees, hot pan de sal and freshly made suman in the middle of the night, kalesa rides, etc.)
and yesterday, on her 2nd birthday, I made good my promise to her —-
we had so much fun that I think we might do this again on her next birthday and make a tradition out of it. 🙂
tomorrow…we will officially enter the world of the terrible twos. yep yep. as much as we would like to slow things down, time seems to fly by sooooo fast — that in just a blink of an eye, our little baby girl became a baby no more… she now goes to school + eats her food by herself (most of the time) + picks her own clothes (all the time) + drives everyone crazy with her antics + has a full-blown crush on john lloyd (good luck na lang kay ruffa!!) + can count 1 to 10 + loves anything pink + sleeps in her own bed in her own room + rarely asks for milk in a bottle (just one at night) + can carry a conversation with you while you’re busy driving the car…
happy birthday to my little potpot!!! 🙂
i’ve been MIA the past couple of weeks…i’ve been pretty busy (driving isa to school + taking care of miggy + preparing for the little girl’s 2nd birthday party + also preparing for the little boy’s christening + etc + etc + etc). sigh.
BUT i managed to squeeze in some scrap time before hitting the sack. even though i was dead tired, i couldn’t resist trotting over to my scrap room to play with some new goodies from Cosmo Cricket which I got from Studio Calico.
love LOVE love the bright colors and the designs soooooo much!!! I think I dropped by their booth at the last winter CHA 1456736778 times just to ogle at the items on display!!!! lol 🙂 and i squealed with glee when we got to play with Mr. Campy in Crystal Jeffrey Rieger’s Let Loose class.
the Lil’ Man line is absolutely perfect now that we have a new little man in the house. and I can see myself using the Early Bird line in quite a number of projects that have been waiting in the back burner since “forever” lol 🙂
i still have TONS of scrap stuff left in my kit. and I am counting off the hours until the kiddies are asleep in their little beds tonight… 😛
