Words or syllables? Well, it’s 4 o’clock in the morning here and Julia’s still wide awake while watching Playhouse Disney’s Mickey Mouse House Club on Disney Channel. I was surfing the net when suddenly Julia started to utter her first play-along-please-notice-me-syllables like “DA-DA”, “BA-BA”, “NA-NA” and whenever she hears Mickey Mouse singing, she’s saying “MAMMMM-MA”. Gosh! My baby’s first words. How adorable the sound of it.
Just so to not forget, here are some things Julia can do now:
- She can claps her hands along whenever I sing to her “Barney’s ILOVEYOU Song”;
- She looks back if somebody is calling her name;
- She loves blowing kisses – I let her put her hands on her mouth and then I’ll say “Flying kiss… mwah!” – she smiles a lot when I do that;
- She shouts to the highest level! I think she will be a good singer like mama (walang kokontra! hehe!);
- She can roll over like 2 or worst 3 times on her back and then on her chest and then back again. It kills me to death whenever I see her doing that, I feel like she’ll fall down the bed anytime. That’s why I decided to put out her crib in the living room so that I can look over her if she wants to do something adventurous;
- She plays a lot with her feet pulling it up by her hand and splitting them up… hmmm… ballerina in the making;
- She still loves playing with gadgets like biting the RCU of the TV, AC and her favorite is her Papa’s Blackberry, hehe!
I’m feeding Julia mush potatoes, carrots and owl – cooked rice left overnight or also known as bahaw in the Philippines. She still loves eating her rice cereal mixed with milk. Last night we went to the doctor for her follow-up check up, Alhamdulillah Thanks God, she doesn’t have cough and cold. We also decided to stop puffing Ventolin for her. She doesn’t have as well the sound coming from her throat or dahak. Hope she’ll continue to stay healthy. Thanks again for all those people who left comments on my FB page for her to get well. A BIG THANK YOU FROM ME AND MY HUSBAND.
I was browsing thru a friend’s album online and was so happy seeing her touring some of the finest spots to travel. She has been to Macau, Thailand, Hong Kong (this is on my top list to go to) and some wonders in the Philippines. I’ve always dreamed of traveling and so I asked her some major ideas on Ways To Travel around the world. There’s a lot of things that you have to consider before taking this step. You have to keen observer and at the same time to think twice on the budget that you have to shoulder for the trip. Not to forget the hotel where you’ll stay in for the mean time. A nice trip should end up in a good and cozy bed. How I wish I could do some adventurous trip like she had. With our little one included, I think this travel ideas of mine will be put on hold up until our little one is ready to travel.
WHAM – Work at home Mom. Well, I wish I could and I wish I am but I can’t. Simply because I have a family back home that I’m still supporting financially. Last night, the husband and I were having a conversation thinking of the future – like what if I will stop working and will just stay home to take care of the little one? Hmmm… it was like a big question to ask and then I told him that there’s this online task on the internet sphere that I can sign up to to earn like. And since I’m into blogging, might as well try it. There’s nothing to loose, might as well try.

A friend of mine posted a link on one of her sites stating that a man’s bestfriend is a dog. Well, we’ve all come to a point that we’ve always wanted to adapt a dog to take care off.
Back in my home country, we’re like taking into consideration that it’s a must to have an a dog in the house. They call it “Bantay” – “Guard” in Eglish. I had a dog once and I name him Sparky, but life seems too unlucky for him because my girl friend told me that he got sick and died. It took her all the guts to say it to me actually because she knows that my heart will break up hearing the news. Well, I guess separation anxiety killed him, hehe! I just now remembered, the reason why I suddenly wrote about this was because a while ago, my and Hubby were on the way home when my husband took my attention saying that there’s a dog missing. He showed me posters of a dog missing hanging on several light posts. It’s a chiwawa. It’s so unusual here in Qatar to have a dog. It’s allowed by the government to have one unlike in other Middle East countries where in it’s prohibited by their Law to have them as a pet. Cats probably are okay but dogs – it’s a no no! I then had a thought of what the owner was feeling this time. Where could his/her dog be? Was it stolen? Did someone run over him and threw it out on the bin? The thought of it makes me realized that it’s really hard to keep on of your own especially if you’re careless like the owner of this Chiwawa. Poor doggie dog.
Do You Love Animals? Becuase if you do, you can help a certain community to stop violating crimes against all animals as well. In this way you can help them all the way by contributing a little financial support. You may never know, you’re lost dog may be one of them.
I’ve been searching in the internet for the best blog themes. I’m kinda thinking of changing my blog theme again. I’m bored with the designs. I may do some tweakings again with the current one I’m using, but I know myself – I may not be happy with the result, I guess.
I’m thinking of changing it to a 3 column blog. I noticed that I have lot of etc on my side bar, and as much as I wanted to remove one of them I simply can’t for the reason of all of them are useful for me – well not really all of them, but let’s just say 60% of it are a need on my blog.
I opting to get a cleaner whiter and more elegant theme. I’m opposite of what I said it to be but I feel like I want a change. Sigh! Guess I have to think 10 times more before deciding on it. Changing theme means saving a lot of work and it will mean a lot of time in front of my laptop which is not acceptable at the moment since I have other important things to do. Sigh! Yet again, the thought of it still exists.
It’s exactly 501am here in Qatar. Julia just slept and I find myself updating my abandoned blog once again. Not really updating, but I need something to write at least.
Aside from being addicted with Facebook, I’ve been playing along while baby sitting Julia with those online games. And I noticed that the sun is up already while getting too busy playing. Sigh! What else to do aside from being a Mom and wife? Well, might as well update something I owned right.
Guess I’ll just tuck into bed anyway. Get some sleep and pray that Julia will get well very soon in order for me to come back to work. My supervisor’s been so generous lately allowing me to take a leave until Julia feels much better. Alhamdulillah! Someone has a precious heart around here who can understand the feeling of being a MOTHER. Huh! Goodnight I mean, Good morning everyone!
Oh yes, my first try to do solo portraits. A friend of mine insist on using Photoshop to do tweaks on the photos but that means more time on the net. Here are some photos to share. I really appreciate these people who trust my abilities to do their photo shoots. Till next time!
First model is dear friend Adnan. He asked me if I can take a photo of him so that he’ll post it on his profiles. I said sure – but I don’t trust myself if I’ll be able to do good shots for him. Here are some photos I like and thanks God, Adnan liked it also… hehe!
And lastly, sexy sassy Jenny.
I’ve always dreamed to have super models like them. I hope that this will go far. I’m getting a lot from this hobby – enjoyment! My bestfriend told me that I was born to have eyes for photography. Partida wala pang lessons yan ha… Well, that’s what friends are for, love your own. Joke Bei!
