i suppose these smiles summarized his 3rd birthday.... :-)

mommy's goal for his birthday.... he'll appreciate that he has one special day in a year, he'll feel that he is really loved.... :-) it's that one day in a year that mommy would really take a time off from work.... :-)

unolulu & baduday & sol time!

spent time with the sistah! and the roommate.... :-) oh and the pamangkins! :-) everytime i have a manila trip, i usually try to meetup with my sibs... pero kuyapots didnt get to join us this time....

walang kaplano-plano, so we just decided to go around UP....our home for 5years during college.... it looked oooold and "small" despite the new buildings... well cguro kasi we've been to bigger spaced and newer places kaya mejo iba na ang perspective.... but we still had fun, feel na feel ang pagtuturista! :D

lunchdate with lolo and lola

these 2 boys are lucky to be growing up around a lolo & a lola.... i know how it feels to have a spoiler around.... i was able to somehow spent some year/s with a lolo/lola before too....  (though extra challenge for mommy/daddy kasi merong spoiler! haha!)

one sunday lunch, habang dayoff ang mga yaya, ngkatamaran lang kaming mgluto sa house so since ngoffer ang lolo ng treat, we decided to head to Chowking Camins, perfect timing dahil supposedly may dapat na darating na plane by 1pm....that resto has a 2nd floor which has a nice view of the the part of the runway where planes usually make their touchdown....

 one of those apo-grannies dates that daddy-mommy were able to join kaya may photos.... :-)

pao's first fun run

last time i had a run, our little guy told me he wants to join mommy.... the EAAB (Edwin Andrews Air Base) fun run was a good sample for him, it's inside the base so i feel safe taking him with me...i signed up pao, me and the daddyboo for a 3K run (although there was supposed to be a 500m for kids hihi)... his motivation - to see an airplane up close.....we have not seen one throughout the run, but that's what kept him going...asked to be carried only for a short time... :-)

my zambo siege recall - day01

September 9, 2014. First day back from a Manila trip with pao and daddyboo... still having that hangover while at the same time excited to play again with mamat.... then the first thing on tv that day was about the fleeing of Mampang residents due to MNLF's presence, and that was in Umagang Kay Ganda, national news! So I was like, things seem quiet here... is that so serious to be in national tv??? Went through the usual monday morning preps for work... As soon as i arrived at work I can already feel the tensed atmosphere. Indeed the Mampang news is dead serious... and our ER was actually busy, very busy... most of the wounded soldiers and police during the early morning clash with the MNLFs were brought to our hospital... 

that day, everybody's hope was still high that it will end by night time just like the Cabatangan siege. we were trying our best to make it work as usual, we're a hospital we can not simply close shop.... however, by early afternoon, 6pm curfew was already imposed. we have to change gear... we have employees supposed to come in at night.... was just surreal...

little car driving

we head straight to Yubenco for our stocks for dinner after playing at daddyboo's office...and while we're there the boys can not let driving little cars pass... so off they go.... 

the mateo had always been the more adventurous one and was never scared... he sits on his car like it's already a regular thing for him

new found playground!

spur of the moment joy ride dahil we need to buy stuff to cook for dinner.... we passed by daddyboo's workplace which is just near our place... the boys loved the big space.... i think it's mateo's first time to be running around a grassy area dahil parang nghehesitate pa sya when he initially stepped on the grass part and went back to the paved area... the last time we brought him in a grassy place e hindi pa sya nakakalakad on his own... he eventually love the soft feel of the grass too! 

kuyaboo: you're looking like a big boy here already... makes mommy forget sometimes that you're not even 3!!! please don't get too excited to grow up, let's take things slow please....

followin' the leader

our little motmot is soooo excited to catch up with his kuyaboo that he dared to take those first steps weeks before his first birthday... so on mommy's first full weekend at home since our little buddha started to walk, iv seen how he's really trying to imitate kuyaboo!!!

i'm sorry for the ugly backgrounds and sloppy photos, i just find this set soooo adorable i can not choose to remove some of the photos.... :-) the motmot held on the other end of the almost-out-of-air balloons from his birthday while kuyaboo held the other... and then kuyaboo leads the walking around the house while the little motmot happily marches along!!! my bad for not takings vids though... so sweet and cute bro-moment! :D

first haircut ng mateo

we've tried to stick to the pamahiin of cutting the baby's hair for the first time only after his first birthday.... so 10days after our little buddha turned 1 we head to kuyaboo's kiddie salon... mateo got excited at the site of the car chairs.... but started to be in shock and crying when the blue cloth to prevent hair from sticking to him was wrapped around him and he cant play with his hands... he was already in a bad mood before the cutting started, so it was a cry-fest the whole time....

awwww..... :-(

mateo's 12th month shoot

this will be our last of this shoot since mateo's already 1... but we'll start another series, hoping this time mommyboo will be included!!! :-)

it was easier in the sense that the kuyaboo and the daddyboo was soooo game, but it was mateo who was not in the mood... hehehe i still love how cute the photos turned out (despite the window shadows hehe).... :-)

shiela's sta cruz despedida (part 1 of 2)

shiela's sta cruz island padespedida favorite photos.... this set's from my cameras only, will have a separate post for photos from everybody else's camera.... :-)

impromptu mangrove planting

we were on the pink sand Sta Cruz Island for a little despedida for Shiela while finally giving in to her wish to see the island (after being in zamboanga city for 2years!!!)... but we had an extra trip to a part of the island that is normally not allowed for visitors to be explored! that's the mangrove area right in the middle of the island... :-)

we were waiting for our boat ride at Paseo del Mar when we spotted our company's chairman...we initially thought he was just in the area for some jog but informed us that he's also on the way to Sta Cruz island for some mangrove tree planting! we joked we want to join, and he said he'll have our company's streamer picked up so we'll have it documented as a company activity! hehehe so para lang may extra adventure game! :D

while waiting for the activity we were already playing and swimming, so when its time to go we're all dripping and with clothes sticking to our bodies and showing off our bilbils! :D

wearing kuyaboo

i wonder what mamat's yaya is thinking letting him wear kuya pao's big sandos and shorts.... and at this instance even the bag.... and the little buddha loved it and he looked sooooo adorable!!! :-) he loves the feel of the bag on his back... feel na feel nya ang getup na to.... :D

lunchdate with Parex!

tita lelang missed the first day! wanted to see the pao on the 2nd day only to realize she'll be unavailable for lunch, and i cant on the 3rd day.... so on a friday, we scheduled a lunch date, and remembered to invite Parex too!!! 

pao's first week in toddler school!!!

so our paolo finally started school! that's after several times he had been telling us he's going to school since last year.... and the several times he would tell me that that angry bird bag his ninang ela gave him would be his bag.... and the number of times he would react to kids in uniform with ID in tv shows and say that that's his ID....

but few days before THE DAY, he was saying he doesn't want to go to school anymore, i asked several times why.... he never answered until one weekend he approached me and told me "wala kasama sa school si papao mommy! may mumu dun!" my gosh san nya napulot yan? and all these time yun lang pala ang ngbobother sa kanya! haha! i told him his ate jean will be there with him.... 

day 01!
the "ayaw ko picture" fever is still soooo in! just wanted to take his OOTD on his first day. he looked cute with his bag and school envelop with paper and pencils and crayons inside.... :-)

clay play kahit blackout

the clay play continued on til night.... actually the clay pail slept beside paolo! (well every new toy does so this is no surprise hehe)... blackout as usual but that didn't stop the daddyboo and the kuyaboo from creating stars and lobsters and baby eggs.... so here's a cute photo series that i just want posted separately.... :-)

first clay encounter ng pao

im not sure what the daddyboo's thinking when he bought our 2yrs old some clay.... well, maybe 1. this kid is such an OC when it comes to things so he might listen to us when we teach him how to play with this.... and 2. paolo's reaction everytime he sees something for the first time... :-)

end of 32nd revolution around the sun

i don't usually celebrate my birthday in a big way... even in the office, i rarely feed them on my birthday (hehehehe feed talaga!)... but since last year i just thought of treating my team on that one day a year... just a simple lunch, nothing fancy...and nothing big.... but this year, i got extra surprises... and here are my thank yous! :-)
my team! though di lahat nanjan... andami dami dami ko na palang anak sa office!!!

my mornings

my mornings are always great because it's made up of these.... every single day!!! :-)

it's either paolo or mateo wakes the other and they never mind the intrusion... and they would start giggling and play and do "ligid ligid sa bed" hihihi

this set was taken during my birthday morning.... loooove!

nursery rhymes night

i have tried not to resort to videos for paolo's learning before....but eventually gave in... i should stop trying to resist technology when teaching kids, just need to learn how to control it though... the videos, we only let them watch when we're home so as not to spoil them and make them get so used to it that they would choose it over actual everytime we're home its lotsa nursery rhymes and bulldozers and backhoes and dump trucks and etc for us.... makes me smile everytime i hear the daddyboo sing along the nursery rhymes on repeat (specially the "the wheels on the bus") which he told paolo before he never heard those before but he now knows by heart, and would even sing it (in a big boy's tune) when driving! signs of a good daddy!!! hihihi
ang serious!!! i think the nursery rhymes playlist that was on that night was the one that i kept on reacting na super brutal.... my first time to listen to the full "Three Blind Mice"...meron palang part dun na the lady cut their tails with a knife!!! and OMG that stuck with paolo! since he's scared of mice he would say "kutsilyuhin ni ate jean buntot ng daga!".... mommy freakout moment na naman!!!!

paseo run!

since we promised that we'll have a paseo trip dahil weeks na since their last, we still went there kahit past 7pm na and mateo is obviously sleepy na...

we opted the open area than the usual spot na tinatambayan nila with lola ang lolo.... since its such an open space e walang pakundangan din ang papao sa pagtakbo! :-) to the amusement (?) and pagod ng mga titabels and ate jean! :D

pardon the mismatched baggy red shorts and teal shirt, eto yung napala ng winiwiwian ang nagiisang dalang shorts! hehe :D he doesn't look like a 2year old anymore... makes me sad and amazed at the same time....

titabels trying to fix his big shorts... pero pinapahirapan pa rin sila sa paghabol! hehehe

owning the place much sweetheart??? 

i'm not sure what he's thinking when he sat beside that kid then just stand up again...i tried to ask him why he did that and he just said "upo ako sa tabi ng bata"....

more habulan.... :-)
