little foodie

i have a hearty eater right here. i dunno if there’s any truth to it but i’d like to believe Sadie’s not a picky eater because she didn’t start out with instant baby food. no gerber, no cerelac. her first food was brown rice cereal MADE BY MOMMY. hahaha! i got bragging rights, right? kidding … Continue reading


she hated the idea of me getting pregnant. she swore to high heavens that she wouldn’t even look at the ‘baby’. she threatened to strangle her when she comes out (yeah, that gave me the shudders). but i knew everything would change once she’s out. and from the first time she laid her eyes on … Continue reading

villain no. 2: lola doctor

at birth, Sadie weighed 4.5 lbs! yes, that tiny. and no, she’s not a preemie. prior to giving birth, we were already told that she’s gonna be uhm, not that big, so my OB and i decided it’s better to get a pediatrician who specializes in low birth weight  babies. since i don’t really know … Continue reading

i couldn’t ask for more

villain no.1

For the past 12 months, we never really had problems giving Sadie her meds– you know, the usual multivitamins, vitamin C, and the occasional colds and cough drops. Lately however, she started freaking out each time we try to get her to take them. Before, gentle nudging does the work, ‘Daddy, di ba Sadie needs … Continue reading

Daddy’s Girl

When my OB exclaimed that our tiny tigress took after her dad the moment she pulled her out of my womb, I knew she’s gonna be a daddy’s girl. Back when she was in her first trimester and we were still staying at my nanay’s house in Ermita, she would only see her dad on … Continue reading
