Whatta year it's been.. During this past year Anzu turned from a baby into a kid. Quite a transformation Only last year, she was just on the sidelines watching all the holiday fun.. and now? well...

Anyway, Im such a busy busy busy mom that I had all the time to review our 2009

It's really nice that I have something to read back, and remember the moments and the feelings all over again... I never imagined myself writing a diary or journal like about my life before, but I guess babies can turn you from a happy go lucky girl to a sentimental person

The thing is, I enjoy sharing my baby's life with you...

So here (due to boredom) I thought of compiling them with my chosen quotes from each post ... hope you enjoy my dramas... i actually cant believe i wrote those things ....

(LONG POST)

JANUARY

**Before, I couldn't imagine my life with a kid, until we have Her. I had so much dreams for myself. And now I can’t imagine my life without Her. My dreams are not only for myself, but for my family as well. My honey felt the same way...


creambunny_star.gif image by bams704Anzu not feeling well
**Ganun pala feeling being a MOm, konting sakit lang, di na mapakali.. I tend to forget she's sick whenever she smiles, pero back to being worried naman when she coughs.

**OH MY... it's been 3 months already,?... my baby is growing. She already weighs about 6 kilos =( Im happy but lil sad... I'll surely gonna miss her baby days. Before we know it, she's going to school already huhuh.. lol

Well of course I'm happy. I've seen her grow up this whole 3 months. We're together 24/7 (although sometimes I go out for shopping ). I see the changes that sometimes amaze us. I'm the one who see almost All her "first"..

Azumi has just turned 100 days . In Japan, a baby celebrates a ceremony called Okuizume which literally means first meal of one's life.

She really enjoys waving her hands while pumping feet during active hours
Her kicks are getting stronger. Her hands are trying to reach for something, but she still can't......

Its overwhelming when you see your child doing some new things... It's been a wonderful 3 months and 3 weeks with our baby now.Her smile is always been a good thing to start a wonderful day .

** Giving up my job with a nice salary to become a full time stay at home m0mma (& a wifey) is all worth it. I wouldn't want to miss anything special from my baby's milestones of development.

creambunny_love.gif image by bams704Feeding Time
** When I was still pregnant, I was already determined to breastfeed my baby even though I didn't have the idea of how would I do it. I heard alot of situations that there are many moms who couldn't breastfeed their babies because they just can't...

3 months Milestones and Vids
** My baby has so many pictures... taking photos and videos of her are just one of my obessessions actually =)

i so much enjoy the Japan's rich culture. Im lucky to be part of it now because I have a Japanese daughter. Im glad to have a husband who whole heartedly shares their culture to me, and willingly like to teach our (future)children not only their culture, but also my culture =) I know, my kids will be happy and proud to be half Filipino and Japanese when they grow up . Coz you know, I know some half filipino kids who don't want to be labeled as filipino

One of my favorite routine of the day ( I guess my baby too ) is BABY BATH TIME . Perhaps this is the main part where we can bond with our lil dollie since I couldn't do it all by myself.

** Having a happy baby is the best pleasures a mom (& dad) could ever have. I wish she stays that way til she gets old.

Goodies from Universal Studios Japan


and it's our first ever ELMO...

I guess I've become an instant Elmo lover as soon as I got these goodies today . These indeed started our day with a biggy smile .

Presents, may it be simple or extravagant, always bring tears of joy especially when you least expect it.

I really want to thank the one who gave these to us.. she's one of the few people that inspires me and I admire so much. Everybody loves her, syempre that also includes me..




本当に 心 から、 ありがとう ございます
はずかしくなった けど。Dolly Anzu loves it especially me
.. it's so sweet and thoughtful of you

After months of waiting and umm, few times of discussion whether to vaccinate or not, finally our lil girl had her aH1N1 Vaccine last Saturday. Actually that was her second shot , the first was taken a week before the second...

I have been so reluctant and on the fence about it at first, because I read alot of opinions which were mostly not in favor. Some were over exaggerating the potential problems with the vaccine. Some even said it has not been properly tested yet, blah blah...

But I guess the media was really scare mongering that overwelmed us to be more extra cautious and wait for the Vaccine to be available in the masses. It's so sad to hear the news about kids have died =( It freaked me out a bit that me and my dolly seldom go out, ride a train and mall hop=(

Our lil Anzu girl's latest addictions.. hmmmm...


Strawberry, Noodles and Bread




Being the strawberry is at peak season in Japan right around now, can't blame my lil girl when she refuses to eat her (former) favorite banana over strawberries which are amazingly sweet and luscious. Recently always served every meal until a new seasonal fruit will be available.

Anzu now chooses breads over cookies. She doesn't like her baby cookies anymore =(

She also loves noodles, such as udon, ramen, soba, or anything long. I guess she finds it amusing when she slurps it. Whenever we dine out, we must order noodles or else, di kami makakain dahil sa kakulitan nya.

Favorite part of the Park (near our house)


this is actually for 3 years old and up..


Dogs

Maru Chan (her granny's Toy poodle), Nana Chan (our neighbor's.. ), and Haru Chan (Okasan's..)

Anzu really gets excited whenever she sees dogs.
That's why I bought her doggy stuff toy which she loves so much. I named him Billy lol


I could share more about her latest addictions but let me judt share my all time favorite instead...

what?
