Masheng's Got More Hair!

I was surprised this morning when I saw what's on my baby's head. "Ipinusod" pala ng Papa nya ang buhok nya! For the 1st time, naitali na rin namin ang buhok ni Masheng. Ilang beses na kasi naming sinubukan before pero 'di talaga namin magawa since masyado pang maikli and manipis ang hair nya nun! That's why I'm so happy kasi mabibilhan ko na siya ng cute ribbons ang ponytails!

My Baby's Tarpaulin Layout

Since I want to take care of almost everything and I want to be "a-hands-on-mom" on my baby's 1st birthday, I took the courage to make and to design her birthday tarpaulin. It took me more than 2 days to finish these layouts and yet I'm still not satisfied... What to expect? ... with so limited time (I just work on my masterpiece here at the office since I haven't transfered my baby's pic yet in my home PC) and limited knowledge (I've been doing scraps using Adobe but this is my 1st time to try making a tarp layout) eh, talagang kahit sinong professional eh, 'di masisiyahan. But, I'm determined to have my own layout printed as my baby's tarpaulin. I want everything to have my personal touch sana kasi... hindi man ako ang magprint basta 'yung layout and design, eh, sa 'kin galing (at ang dami ko pang gagawin! cd souvenir, invitation, pinata, etc ... umandar na naman ang pagka frustrated party organizer ko!). Anyway, here are the layouts that I've been doing for the past few days, hindi pa nga tapos since 'di wala pa kong ilalagay na 10th and 11th month pics ni Masheng. I've been wanting the Precious Moments theme sana (although 'yung isa lang ang may ganung theme) ... yeah, I know, hindi sila mukhang tarp ... para lang silang scrap layouts ... that's why I need your honest opinions, please po! Thanks!

Happy 10th Month Marchelle!

It's my baby Masheng's 10th month today! Too sad that just like her previous "month birthdays", I wasn't able to spend the day with her because of work. I even felt like crying when I left her at home this afternoon. She was crying so hard since she knew that we were leaving without her again.

I wasn't even able to take photos of her this morning since I didn't have much time (I always do so whenever she turns a month older). So I just told hubby Jomski to do it for me since his work starts at 6pm.

It gets harder and harder each day, specially now that she's already experiencing separation anxiety. We sometimes have to sneak out of the house just for her not see us going away. You could imagine how hard it is to leave the house without even saying goodbye or kissing her just to spare her from shedding tears. But its even harder to leave while seeing her crying as if begging us to bring her with us.

If only I wouldn't have to work anymore so I could spend all my time with her! She's one of the reasons why I've been wanting to resign and quit my job. And yeah, maybe that's the reason why I'm always gloomy these days (Though that wasn't the reason why I argued with our boss yesterday... akala nya kasi napapagod lang ako sa work and sa baby ko kaya naging "sarcastic" and "rude" daw ako sa kanya kahapon... I'm not the type of person who brings my personal problems and anxieties at work. So that scene happened because I was really meaning to make him understand and realize something...).

Well, of course, It's not easy to decide ... especially now that Masheng's birthday is getting nearer! (gosh, 2 months to go!) ... Hmmm, maybe I can decide after March 16 ... :)

Happy 2nd Wedding Anniversary, Baby!

I just wanna greet my baby a happy anniversary. Today's our 2nd wedding anniv. No special celebration yet though, since we both have work. We'll just probably go out this weekend (sana lang wala siyang pasok).

Anyway, I just want him to know na kahit lagi kaming nagtatalo lately eh, love na love ko pa rin siya. These past few days kasi eh, lagi kaming nag-aargue. Wala lang, parang 'di lang namin masakyan ang isa't isa minsan. Siguro dahil sobrang focused kami sa baby kaya there are times na nababalewala namin ang feelings ng isa't isa. Well, I know, pansamantala lang 'to. Siguro naga-adjust pa rin kami as 1st time parents. Imagine, almost 8 years ba naman kaming magkasama na kami lang 2, so nakakapanibago din talaga ngayong may baby na (FYI: we've been together for 7 years before we got married and we will celebrate our 10th anniv as magboyfriend this year!).

Well, as long as we're still in love with each other, eh, 'di naman siguro kami dapat mag worry. Of course, we'll find ways to work things out and make everything perfect again...
