Last night, my daughter surprised me by showing off her malambing nature. We were watching MTV while I sang to her when one of the good videos came up. When I looked at her to see what her reaction was to my singing, she made a “nguso”, kissed me and clapped her chubby hands afterwards. Wasn’t that the sweetest? It was the first time she did so without me asking it from her.

The other time she surprised me with her affectionate nature was last week was when I fetched her from her long 4-day stay-over at my grandma’s house. When I opened the door to see ate Linda and her playing she looked up at me and flashed me her big mega-watt, six-toothed grin. What more, she even gave me a big hug when i picked her up.

Although I maybe out of her sight for 12 hours (or more) every weekdays, her “lambing”-ness (self-made word) to me, every time I come home, is the bestest ever reward a mother could ever have.


Walk like a man….talk like a man….

The daughter walked 4 steps yesterday before falling on her butt! Goooo, elise!! A few days (and practices) more and we’ll be chasing her around like crazy. Can’t wait!!

She also did a show over skype video to my parents today. Elise clapped her hands and danced to the “Makulay ang Buhay” Knorr commercial video. Its her favorite commercial same as Kim Chiu’s “Kering-keri”. The grandparents were thrilled! Its great that we enjoy this kind of technology these days. Too bad, nothing still beats the feel of being able to hug your grandchild afterwards. Don’t worry mom and dad, we’ll be able to embrace your
solamente nieta soon.
