Weekend Story: Unli Family Time

While we always look forward to weekends (kaway-kaway sa mga weekend warriors dyan!), weekends these days for us are extra special because family members are around. The family is complete because we really try to lessen our trips outside. If before, my siblings (who are our neighbors) normally go out with friends during weekends, now they’re home. Mornings are for coffee breaks and afternoons are well, for merienda, haha. We bond over food: food that are available at home and food delivered via Food Panda or Grab Food. It’s more costly this way because we tend to include online shopping in our bonding sessions, but at least we know our chances of getting the dreaded virus is low.

Weekend Story: My 37th Birthday Celebration

Last weekend was another long one for me because yesterday, October 12th, was my birthday. Yay, I just turned 37 years old! I really can’t ask for more blessings from above because I’ve had enough this year (despite the CoViD-19 pandemic being a kill joy!), the greatest of them being our rainbow baby. She’s growing up so fast and we can’t wait to do more family activities with her that involves going out of the house. It’s my first birthday with her around and it feels so surreal. My heart is filled with gratitude and I plan to continue with this state of heart (and mind) for as long as I can.

Weekend Story: Baby NJ’s Pedia Visit + Edwin’s 41st Birthday Celebration

Last weekend was a long one for us because we took a leave from work yesterday for the hubby’s birthday. Well, technically, it was just him who literally took a leave from work because I was working from home yesterday.

On Saturday, we took baby NJ to her pediatrician (whose clinic is located in Binondo, Manila) for her second pneumococcal and third rotavirus vaccines. One more vaccine to go and our wallets will be able to rest temporarily until next year!

Weekend Story: Baby NJ’s Christening + Pippo’s 8th Birthday in Heaven

After ten years, I’ve finally gone back to writing weekend stories again. Hopefully, I could do this regularly na. If not, ibig sabihin, na-busy or nagprocrastinate na naman si Mommy Edel, hahaha. Anyway, ours was a long weekend as we took a leave from work yesterday to have some down time and celebrate our little angel Pippo’s 8th birthday in heaven. Gosh, it’s been eight years already! So dapat pala may second grader na ako ngayon, waaaah.

Our Second Pregnancy Story: Meet Nazarene Joy, Our Rainbow Baby

It was the second week of June 2019 when the hubby and I learned that we were pregnant. My mens was delayed and I suddenly had this strange feeling that I might be pregnant and what do you know, the home pregnancy test I took turned out to be positive! We saw the Ob-Gyne on June 22nd but we didn’t get to do an ultrasound until July 6th and that was when we confirmed that we were really expecting. Of course, both of our extended families were ecstatic about the good news. As for the hubby and me, we were over the moon! 🙂
