a late post about my mom's birthday

the happiest moment with mom
I thought I need to write one last post for the last day of May in honor of my late mom. This day happens to be her birthday until we learned later from one piece of legal document she had that her birthday actually fell on the 30th. I was already in high school when she declared that her real birthday is on the 30th and not the 31st. I was told my late grandfather and grandmother used to argue about these dates, too. I am not exactly sure about this confusion on her birthday. It wasn't really a big deal for her, though, since she can celebrate it on the 30th or on the next day.

Losing my mom was perhaps the most painful experience I've encountered so far in my life. I thought I still had a lot of time to be with her. I thought there's still time for her to be able to hold and cuddle her very first granddaughter. Unfortunately, God took her away from me just barely two months after my wedding. Oh, you can just imagine the extreme shift of emotions I had from the time of our wedding and the time when we lost her. Anyhow, time has it's own way of letting us cope with the pain of losing someone you really love. As the years went by, I have learned to embrace the fact that she's happier somewhere up there and that I should be happy as well because she didn't suffer long enough from her sickness. And although she's not physically here now, I can still connect to her when I think of her and the mother-daughter moments we had when she was alive. I miss all those moments with mommy because I can tell her almost anything. As for other things, she would look them up on my diary. :-) Oh mom, you can sneak up on every bit of my life now without having to read parts of my blog or my diary.

that mommy moment

Because there are less words to say today, I should let the photo speak for itself. :-)

If only I can always capture all moments like this one in photographs, I would!

blue moments with dipdip

mommy moments

I'm joining the Mommy Moments again! The theme is blue and so I have to use again Dipdip's older pictures because I don't remember if she has anything else blue other than this hand-me-down dress which was already outgrown by the daughter of my first cousin. Anyway, whether she's wearing a brand new dress or a hand me down, anything looks good on her. As the Chinese proverb goes "There is only one pretty child in the world, and every mother has it." *wink*

mommy moments - color them red

mommy moments

Am I late for Mommy Moments? Yours truly wants to catch up! The theme is all about RED. I love red, they say it is my lucky color. However, I wasn't quite sure why pictures in red are quite limited. So now, I'll have to use old pictures again because I realized that my daughter too didn't have too much of this color. I wouldn't be surprised if hubby doesn't have any red stuff, though.

I let her wear red during the reception of her baptism. There goes the red bracelet, too. She was about four months old then.

She also has a red rag doll. Well, dipdip is already sleeping now, I forgot to do a photo er video op with her holding this earlier.

I like her pose right here so this has to be part of her red moments.

Here's another family pic where I wore an old red shirt.

I'd like to take the chance to thank my sister-in-law for the new red pair of sandals that she gave me when she was here. I really love it! Somehow she just knew what I wanted. The size fits perfectly right because she had asked hubby without my knowledge. Well, the nanny just said it's not really red but maroon but I would like to insist that it is red so that I could add it here. Thank you Ruthie and Geir :-)

friday yellow moments

mommy moments

It's Friday and you guys already know what that means - it's Mommy Moments time! Well, let's get down to the theme. It's all about Yellow. Mommies get to share "yellow" kids' stuff.

Well, let me just share to you that my Dipdip's favorite cartoon character is Winnie The Pooh. So, that is why we have come to love Pooh as well. These photos were taken just today, an exclusive shoot for the Mommy Moments :-)

I just remembered she also wore yellow the morning of her birthday. She was trying to be a singer but ended up dancing, anyway. :-)

Mommy Moments - My Dipdip's Shoes

mommy moments

I missed Mommy Moments for a while. Now, I'm back. :-) Anyway, the topic is all about baby's shoes. So now I'm sharing this to the rest of the mommies here. For those who would like to join in the fun in sharing their shoes stories, just click on the Mommy Moments badge.

this is her old pair. she first learned how to walk with these shoes.
it's too small for her now. :-)

she has a pink pair. but it won't fit her just yet. we're putting some tissue inside just so it would fit her. talk about parents' ingenuity!

this one is a hand-me-down (her first cousin used to own this pair) but it fits just right!
i don't know if this would fit under the 'shoes' category. let's just call this a footwear. :-)

so now, she's pretty much walking with this hand-me-down pair!

Mommy Moments - Riding With My Girl

mommy moments

This is my first time to join the Mommy Moments! We don't really "own" a car. But my husband has been "driving" Oliver (the car has a name and it's a vintage car, LOL) for more than a year now. It's his sister's car, actually. She bought it second hand. When she went to Norway, the family agreed to let us use it for the meantime so that we can have a comfortable ride whenever we plan to visit his parents.


Oliver is rather old, but still he and hubby are still capable of bringing us to safety... With God's  blessings and guidance, of course!

Talking About The New Normal

What's the new normal these days? This got me thinking today, and I thought I should make a list. 1. Wearing Masks. Obviously, it'...
