a belated Father's Day post

Lately, I guess I am not really that good enough at keeping my posts up to date especially when it comes to special occasions. This special day didn't go by, though, without celebrating it with hubby and my little girl. I also didn't forget to call dad on this day. I was able to greet father-in-law the day before that. Glad we were able to talk a day ahead because I learned their telephone line needed fixing after that. We had a simple celebration of Father's Day last week at home. We grilled one big fish that we had bought from the market. Aside from that, we also had some clams. It was gastronomically satisfying. Unfortunately, I forgot to take some pictures. I'll have to remember to do that next time. As for my gift for husband, he insisted to have it postponed. Indeed, as of now, we'll do well financially when we put other planned expenses aside. So, I gave him another gift that money can't buy. :-)

A Year In The Life of Dip-Dip

It's been a year ago since I've written about coming home with Baby Pauline (Dip-Dip) from the hospital. This time, I'd like to do a little recap with DipDip's one year milestone. Newborn It was March 26, 2009 when I delivered Dip-Dip via Caesarian, it wasn't a planned Caesarian. It was a decision we both had to make at the eleventh hour to ensure that she will be safely delivered into this world. I guess Dipdip pretty much liked it inside my womb that she didn't want to come out. And of course, it also had something to do with my safety as well. It's funny because some friends would blame it on my age (referring to me as "old") because I had Pauline at the age of 32 years old. But what can I do - I only got married just a few days before I would turn 31, ya know. Well, anyway, we were so happy that the Lord has answered our prayers to bless us with a child. She was 6.8 lbs (3.1 kgs) when I delivered her. Not bad! First Month This was a pic

i know i shouldn't miss a post about father's day. i have planned to write a wonderful article about my husband in celebration of this special day but like i mentioned in my previous post, we were so caught up with worries about little pauline and the possibility of her getting the sore eyes from her nanny and so we had to make immediate plan of action and decided to take dipdip to my inlaws. honestly, parenting would be a difficult task without him. just like motherhood, fatherhood is also a full-time job. and it does not only take a day to appreciate what a wonderful father he is to our daughter. i'm sure hubby would be sneaking in to this blog when he's not busy. i'd like to dedicate this post for all the times that he would put off buying something new for himself just so we could prioritize our daughter's needs; for all those nights of staying awake for our daughter; for putting off getting a haircut just so we could be home the earliest possible time for
