Sundae at her 6th month

Sundae at her 6mos and 4weeks
On her 6th month, Sundae started to say consonants pa-pa-pa. She can distinguish Mickey Mouse on TV, she reacts when it's not Mickey's scene. She can crawl, sit without and stand with support, jumps when you let her stand on you lap. There are also times that I can hear her say mommy =).

She roll overs faster as compared on her 5th month. At 6months and 3 weeks, I guess already knows her routine, like when it's time for her cereals, I'm going to work and go out with her Daddy.

When she's asleep and it's about few minutes before I go to work, she'll wake up and will turn her head and look for me. Her Dad will carry her and we'll head over to the jeep terminal.

Sundae Tantrums

My Sundae is turning 7 months on August 1st, at her age, 6 months and 3 weeks, she already shows some tantrums. She cries without tears coming out just sounds, sometimes when she wants something that we don't allow her to hold, she will cry, out loud and with tears.

We are renting an apartment on the 3rd floor, if I'm going down for work, she must go with her Daddy and will send me at the terminal. In the afternoon, after my Nanay washed her, Daddy must bring him down and have a walk. That's their daily routine, since Daddy has no work since June.

Smile though ...

really not having a good time.

in trouble..terribly..

I can still smile, but, behind the smile is a crying me. But I'm strong, nobody would hear me cry, writing how I feel is enough to burst this. I can tolerate pain, to the highest level. haha!

Whoever can read this, don't worry, I'm still fine. I have GOD with me, HE will never, ever let me down. I just need to extend my patience...long..long..long..immeasurable, as it can.

Just keep it

There are some things that should not be shared to avoid issues. I' rather keep it myself than to hurt my love ones. I don't believe in what others said that you must not keep a secret so you would live a harmonious life and relation. There are words, especially from your past, that are better left unsaid. Past is called past so it must not be carried or talked in present. It must only serve as lesson or experience.

Things from the past may hurt, and if you really love them, you must avoid hurting them. Just live in the present and just keep your secret from the past. What is most important is you must be honest with them now, starting the day you commit your life to him.

Confidence is Coming Back

After losing my confidence while I'm pregnant; you know feeling ugly, bloated feet and everything that may happen to you while on the way, I'm beginning to regain the it again. Although some marks are still in my body, I don't care, the baby that made it is so cute and I can forget the marks every time I see my lovely Sundae.

I'm still on the process of losing my weight, but I can now wear some of my clothes that was stocked due to my pregnancy. Losing my weight is not a new challenge for me, I tried it before and I made it. I know I can do it again, it's not easy, though, but I can succeed on it. I won't stop until I finally regain my old shape.

Join me in my journey to weight loss.

Double Celebration

Nanay on left, Sundae and I
July 3, Daddy's birthday and Sundae's 6th month post celebration.

It's Daddy's 28th birthday and Sundae's 6th month on July 1. July 1st is weekday and I also have commitment in office, it's Quantum X's 10th year anniversary, so we can't go out. Instead, we celebrated it on the 3rd. We went out for a dinner, of course at Daddy's favorite food chain-Jollibee. =) Daddy took the picture, he rarely wants to be taken picture. My Sundae likes the fries, even when she's only 5 months when we ate at Wendy's.

From her Prize at MomCenter

These are the things I bought from Sundae's price at MomCenter
These are the things I bought from the GC that we got from our prize at MomCenter Photo blog and Family Photo. I bought a new mat for Sundae since she tore the mat I bought before I gave birth. She pulls it every time I wash her. And Nanay is so patient to put a dock tape on it.

Meet Dudae

Dudae: DUhat ni sunDAE
Dudae is Sundae's tree =) we will plant this when we go back to Lopez. In seven years, this little tree will give her duhat. Nanay put the seed in the plastic with soil and Daddy notice that it grew on 24th of June. Daddy transfer the little duhat in empty can of Sundae's milk and take care of Dudae everyday. One day Daddy notice that one of it's tiny stem was broken, the bird pecked it! Since then, Dudae will have to put inside the house and put out in the terrace every morning, you know photosynthesis.

Milk Change

Bye S-26 Gold, hello Promil Gold! Sundae has changed her milk, can't believe she's half way to her one year time flies. My breast milk is no longer enough for her, it suddenly producing less when she was at the midst of her 5th month. Although I pumped at least once a day. Roxan told me that it would really happen because it should be suck every two hours so it would continue to replenish. But since we do not have a refrigerator here in the office and I can't stock it for 6 hours in air conditioned room I only pump two hours before I went home.

Today is so Special

Sundae and Daddy Dang
It's my husband's 28th birthday and Sundae's 6th month. Also have a good news, my Sundae will not be leaving tomorrow..yey!

Thank you Daddy for taking care of me and Sundae. For preparing our breakfast and my baon everyday. You know how much I love you despite all your tantrums..haha! You may not have provided us financially but you were never get tired of doing all the household even before you are still working. Taking care of us is more important, since I can provide the money for us. Please be patient, you will be able to work soon. We just have to pray and stick together.

Sundae, I may not be at your side always due to my work, but I want you to know that I'm doing this for you. That's why I'm trying to attend to you every night and every weekend, alone, without Nanay's help. I love you so much baby and be a good girl.
