Having a flexible job enables me to spend priceless time with her. It may not buy us all the best material things in the world but it sure buys me more time to enjoy the most and the best moments of life with her. I just love watching her grow and learn everyday and being there every step of the way. Loving the simple life and enjoying family life! 🙂
On December 7th was my daughter’s 2nd birthday. The family celebrated it on December 9th because it was Sunday. No work, no school and everybody is available. It was a special day especially for us (hubby and I). It was fun, exciting and tiring at the same time. Hubby and I did the shopping and mom helped in preparing the food. I am thankful for relatives and friends who came to celebrate. I am also grateful to our families across other cities and abroad which in one way or another have extended their blessings and greetings.
I was overwhelmed because last year Gillian was so young and now she’s impossibly two and had gotten so big. She was so amazing this entire year. She had learned a lot of things and made us also realized and learned so much about responsibilities. We made small and big decisions which greatly consider her welfare. We moved to a new place, built a home, switched jobs and started a fresh life. I am so proud of her for being simply amiable and I can’t ever imagine being apart from her for even a moment anymore.
We did a small party where neighbors and families enjoy the party foods and the chats. I believe that Gillian was aware that it’s her party but she was awed by different and new faces. I just realized when I looked at the pictures that she hasn’t really smiled on any of it. But I knew she really enjoyed all the colorful balloons and had loved playing with other little kids.
Surely, will be counting and cherishing the days and months ’till her next birthday! 🙂
We love you baby Gillian! ♥ ❤ ♥
Each of us has a desire to be loved and cared for. It is a great feeling to love someone, more so if that person cares about you in return.
I am grateful for all the love I receive not only from my better half and daughter but from all the people in my life who truly matter. To my parents who are always there to guide and support me, through thick and thin. To my brothers, who maybe in the other City, but continue to make me feel that I always have a family to count on to. To all the members of my family (may it be immediate or extended) and to friends who have been a part of my meaningful life, thank you very much. I care and I love you in return.
This post is to express my love and gratefulness that you all exist in my life. Let’s spread the love on this month of heart! ❤
Love you now and always…

“To my observation, I think the greatest dream of every man is getting harder to achieve each passing moment. He may not aware of this dream but his thoughts, emotions and actions clearly convey this. It evidently speaks: “I’m looking for true love.” by enjoyingthefamilylife.wordpress.com
This video has flashed back a lot of memories.
From the moment I’ve set my eyes on Smallville, I haven’t stopped wishing to have my own Superman since then. I remembered waking up all night just to watch Clark Kent on those episodes endlessly. I still even got all the set of CD’s I collected years ago for my own token of obsession for the movie. I also recalled cutting my own picture and pasting it besides Clark onto one of his photos captured from Smallville. I had all sort of Tom Welling’s pictures pasted all over in my room too. I also even compiled some records of his autobiography. Oh yeah, I’m a certified fanatic Smallville buff. I so wanted to be Lana, and later to become Lois. I always wondered back then, when my Superman would ever find me.
The season finale has ended a few months ago and I thought too that I would never ever find my real Clark.
However, he came as swiftly as any super human could be. It’s when I haven’t expected it the most. Later, I realized that he came at the right time. It’s when I really needed saving. I wasn’t doing very well with managing my single life back then. My Superman did find me afterall. Until now, I can’t be thankful enough that I have him. He’s a loving and wonderful person in his own way. I think, I love him more than Clark now. 🙂 Of course I really do, that’s why I married him. 🙂
I’m grateful that I have my very own superman now and he’s adorable too. 🙂
This is the face that I long for every single moment of my life.
The reason that I am stronger now as a person.
The greatest achievement of my life.
And the best blessing I ever have.

Gillian is 292 days old today and she loves to eat now. She’s eating mostly everything that I prepare for her. Apart from the baby cereals, I also cook milled rice and mix it with different vegetables. At times, I mix it with cooked squash or potato. Her favorite is when I blend it with beaten eggs. She also likes eating banana for dessert. Yes, she’s doing pretty well in using her two teeth.
She’s making baby talks and fond of yelling these days. I think Gillian has a soprano voice because when she yells, it is remarkably high-pitched. When I try to sleep in the morning, I can hear her shrill voice that only her knows what the words are meant. You know, it’s still hard to figure out all the words that she’s trying to make. Sometimes she may seem to say “De, de, de”, when she doesn’t want anything anymore. This may mean “hindi, dili, or no”. This often happens when you try to feed her with milk on a baby bottle, she would shake her head and say “de, de, de”. It is our cue that she doesn’t like it. Gillian prefers solid foods now than her milk. This is a good thing, I guess. It means that she’s growing.
One thing that she likes doing nowadays is our book-reading sessions. When I read to her I must continuously say the words or else she would scream if we will stop it. She likes me to continue reading to her and not stop, not until she gets bored anyway. Honestly, we can finish four books in one reading session. Whew!
I am constantly enjoying being a mom. Especially, being a mother of Gillian. Gillian and I are learning together each day. I – learning to be a more patient and responsible mom, and her – learning anything what she can and is able to grasp at her age.
I wonder when I can hear from her the perfect word for “mama”. It may be one of the best feelings in the world. 🙂
