Mommy Moments: Haircut

mommy moments

Jeremy had his first haircut when he turned 1 year old. It has always been a challenge to have his hair cut because he cries very hard, doesn't sit still because his eyes and hands follow the barber's razor LOL!

As you can see in the picture (August 2008), he's still all smiles because he thought he'll just be playing with the toy car

He's still smiling here when the cape was put on and he was given a lollipop. But that's about it because he started wailing when the guy started to cut his hair. I didn't take a picture anymore as I was restraining him from getting up fom his chair and well, I just wanted to pacify him.

Here's what he looked like after his haircut. We were thinking of just a trim for him so that he gets a new hairstyle but the barber found it difficult to style his hair so there.

Afterwards, we treated him to his favorite spaghetti, this time at McDonald's, to make him feel better :)

Lately, it's easier to have his hair cut but whenever he hears other children crying, he follows suit LOL! Maybe next time, there won't be tears anymore.

Mommy Moments: Grandparents Bonding

mommy moments

Wow! I missed Mommy Moments last week and I only realized now it's a Friday so I wouldn't want to miss another entry :) This Friday, we give the spotlight to grandparents bonding with their grandchildren.

At the start of our marriage, my husband and I lived in Bulacan and we stayed there until Jeremy was more than 3 months old. After that, we moved back to Manila and had the chance to visit my parents often. Even then, Jeremy didn't warm up right away with his grandparents. It's pretty obvious with the picture below, right? LOL!

After a few more visits, Jeremy finally bonded with his lolo (grandfather) and now they're the best of friends :) And here they are today:

jeremy and lolo

By the way, I looked for any picture of Jamie with my parents but there's none. I guess I overlooked it. Hmm will have to take lots of it one of these days.

What's up?

The past week has been a busy one and I even missed posting for Mommy Moments :( I'll make up this week and will submit early, I hope LOL!

Anyway, I'm still busy both at work and at home. Our team is finished with the mock calls last week and we're just waiting for the date of our go-live. I hope everything turns out fine so that we get good feedback from the client. It would be great if the account stays for a very long time :)

I'm also busy at home because Jamie has apparently changed her schedule (babies change their schedules every month)so she's awake most of time in the afternoon but the good thing is she's very sleepy by 8pm and can now sleep for 3 hours continuously. Yay! I can sleep too, of course that's why I'm happy. I hope this carries on for the months to come. Getting a good night's sleep is still the best thing even if I sleep during the day.

After my shift in the morning, I then spend time with Jeremy who's growing more and more talkative as the days pass. He still speaks German, sometimes Chinese LOL! Kidding aside, I can now understand more of the words that he says and he's even starting to eat rice again! I'll elaborate on that on my next post. I told his dad to put up the kiddie pool tomorrow so that he can take a splash while the rains are not back again. I even plan to inflate his beach ball and floaters to complete the experience :)

Talk to you again soon!

Jamie turns 2 months old!

Happy Tuesday!

Even if I was on training which started last night at 11pm until 4am this morning, I got up at 8am to cook spaghetti for breakfast because it's Jamie's 2nd month :) And of course, it's Jeremy's ultimate favorite food so I had to cook early.

Here's Jamie looking pretty in her summer dress. I'm sure all the mothers would agree that their kids are the prettiest and handsomest in the whole wide world :)

Jamie love sleepy

I'm going to be very busy with work in the days to come as we are going to go live for a new account by Thursday. Hopefully things will turn out fine and I'm going to devote time in studying the training manual. I'm going to visit everyone again as soon as I get free time.

Thanks so much for dropping by and I hope you enjoy the rest of the day!

Mommy Moments: Happy Mommy Moments

mommy moments

This week's theme of Mommy Moments is Happy Mommy Moments. Like what Chris said, everyday is a happy mommy moment and choosing one or even some is difficult especially since I can't find those pictures LOL!

Anyway, I just thought of posting this video of Jeremy dancing while you can hear me on the background coaxing him to face the camera. I took this video last April 13.

This video is indeed a happy mommy moment for me as I see my son enjoying himself. I hope you like watching it too :)

Manny Pacquiao did it again!

I know I've been gone for a while and I even missed posting my entry for Mommy Moments for the first time ever since I joined. I am so busy at work and the recruitment team is also getting ready for a potential account to start this week so to say my hands are full would be an understatement :)

No matter how busy I am though, I won't pass up the opportunity to congratulate our very own Manny "Pacman" Pacquiao for beating Ricky Hatton with a second left to the 2nd round! TKO, baby! It was the left hook that did it for Manny. I even pitied Hatton when he fell cold on the canvas. It must have hurt like hell! He was very open indeed for the punch and Manny went for the killer. The bout ended just like that LOL!

Again, congrats Manny! All the alaxan and vitwater did it for you LOL! Because ya know! Try one now!
