Weekend Story: Baby NJ’s Vaccine Day + Minor Accident

Last weekend was quite busy. On Saturday, the hubby and I took baby NJ to her pedia in Manila for yet another vaccine shot. (This time, it’s Hepa A vaccine and we paid P3,500 for it which was already inclusive of consultation fee.) The rest of the day was spent finishing errands.

Our Sunday was not so happy because baby NJ had a minor accident. She tripped while walking (ang bilis nya kasi maglakad, mana sakin, waaaah!) and bumped her knees on the ground and her left forehead on the sidewalk. She cried really loud and my mommy heart got broken into pieces for a few minutes. Her knees didn’t get scratched but her left forehead was a different story. While it didn’t swell, it turned red and got a small scratch. We immediately put an ice pack on it to soothe it. We also observed NJ in the next hours for other symptoms. Fortunately, she didn’t have any and even returned to her normal self just as soon as she stopped crying.

Weekend Story: Car PMS + Gifted Clothes

Last weekend was a bit busy. On Saturday, I accompanied the hubby to Quezon City for our car’s preventive maintenance. It took a few hours before we were allowed to drive the car again and since we got hungry while waiting, we opted to dine at one of the restos in Banawe before going home in Bacoor. Our Sunday was spent at the condo where we did a mini photoshoot of baby NJ and her gifted clothes just for fun. She’s one lucky baby because she gets a lot of nice dresses, tops, and bottoms from our family and friends, with or without a special occasion.

Weekend Story: Chinese New Year and Valentine’s Day 2021

Last weekend was a long one. Friday was Chinese New Year (CNY) and Sunday was Valentine’s Day. We did not celebrate both occasions, though. We’re non-believers, I guess. Haha, just kidding. Our CNY for instance, was spent through a quick visit to St. Pio Shrine in Libis. I was with the hubby and my MIL. It’s been a while since the last time we went there.

Weekend Story: Baby NJ’s 1st Birthday Celebration

Last weekend was super fun, memorable, and meaningful. It was baby NJ’s first birthday on Sunday, after all. As what we had planned out, we had a small party at the condo attended only by family. We brought drinks (and the whole house!) to the condo and had food delivered from various sources. We also hired a photographer (thanks again kuya Raul Mansilungan of Love Photography!) who took tons of beautiful photos of our simple celebration.

The hubby and I were exhausted after the party but we were so so happy our rainbow baby is now one. From having an infant, we now have a toddler, yay! Where has the time gone?

Weekend Story: Slow and Fine

I love slow and fine weekends. It means life is boring but it is good and worry-free. Last weekend was just like that. We did the usual stuff like going to the supermarket, doing household chores, getting online, and spending quality time with baby NJ. The last one was the best and most enjoyable, if only I can repeat it ad infinitum. Oh, and the hubby and I got to do some brisk walking which we should be doing more regularly to lose weight. Lalo na ako because I still haven’t shedded the pounds I gained during my pregnancy, waaaaah!

Weekend Story: Baby NJ’s First New Year

Last New Year weekend was extra special and meaningful in the sense that most of us were relieved 2020 was finally over and a new year has arrived. I dunno with you but the way I saw it, it felt like we were entering a new era and we were hopeful about everything. We were glad we were still alive when 2020 ended which meant we have survived the pandemic (so far).

In our family, we rang in 2021 as simply and as happily as we could. We also made sure baby NJ would have a great time by dressing her up and explaining to her about the firecrackers and the firework displays, haha. She got scared with the loud sounds from the firecrackers at first but enjoyed it eventually. For her own safety, we took her inside the house after a minute of watching outside because we have started to smell smoke in the air.
