A few weeks ago, I got sick. I caught a cold. The doctor said it was most likely I caught one from one of the kids at a birthday party I went to. I remember feeling terrible. My nose was clogged up, and I would cough until my throat felt dry. I didn’t want to be away from my Mommy at all.

Nasal aspirator, blue chamomile gel and nasal spray for my cold.

I hated that nasal aspirator! After a few times, Mommy stopped using it because I hated it so much. The nasal spray helped me breathe better, and I didn’t hate it as much.

This is me leaning on Mommy when I had a bit of a fever during the cold.

I lost a bit of weight when I got sick. It’s OK, I will get it back because I am eating more these days. When I was sick, I hardly ate because I didn’t feel nice. I would only want Mommy’s milk.

Now I am better, and I hope I won’t catch a cold again!


Hello, everyone.

My. It has been a long time since I last told you about what I’ve been up to. My mommy has been so busy taking care of me and doing her new work at home that she has not been able to write on this blog for me. But she knows everything that I have been doing. Here are some of those things:

1. I had my pneumonia shot just a few days before my 8 month birthday.

2. I can now say “Da-da” and “Ma-ma-ma-ma”, and soon, I will find out what these funny sounds mean. I say them a lot.

3. I am trying to crawl. I push myself up with my arms and try to put my chunky legs forward, but I seem to keep moving backward. Oh well. My visiting Lola Ochie says it’s still early for crawling.

4. I have four teeth. The ones on top just started to come up. I bit Mommy twice already while drinking milk, but she always forgives me.

5. I attended my first children’s party when Kuya Markus turned two years old on July 10.

6. I got a cold after the party, because Dr. Neri said that babies like me usually get colds after a children’s party.

7. I received some new toys from my titos and titas who came from Canada to visit.

8. I can eat fish now. I like it a lot! My mom is thinking if she will just make me eat fish, veggies, fruits and eggs instead of giving me meat. I don’t think I mind. She says it is healthier.

Tomorrow, I will be going out of town with my daddy’s side of the family. It will be the first time I will see the beach, swim in a real swimming pool, and ride a big bus. I will tell you all about what I did when I get back. Thank you.

Happy birthday, Vito!

You are eight months today. Last year this time, you were inside me and we had just found out we were expecting a baby boy. You don’t know how happy we were to find out, and how excited we were to finally see you. It seems so long ago, especially when I see just how big, strong and healthy you have grown.

You have reached so many milestones the past month! You have learned how to sit up on your own, how to make a multitude of goos, babbles and gurgles, how to say “ba-ba-ba” and “pa-pa-pa” and “na-na-na…” Sigh. Can you please say “mama” and “dada” already, baby? Hahaha! How we love to listen to you whenever you try to talk; your voice is so cute, it makes Daddy and me crazy each time. And your laugh, oh, your laugh! There’s no sweeter sound in the world.

As you grow another month older, baby, I pray that you will continue to grow more and more healthy and happy. Daddy and I love you, Vito!

Me and Daddy on Father's Day

Dear Daddy,

I forgot to tell you: Happy Father’s Day! It’s very late, I know. But I have been so busy with eating, and clapping, and shouting, and tummy time that I forgot to tell you how much I love you.

Daddy, thank you for:

1. Staying home to watch me while Mommy goes to her office

2. Playing with me every day

3. Carrying me when Mommy’s back is hurting

4. Changing my diaper and washing me up

5. Taking me for walks in the garden

6. Letting me watch a little of Baby TV, even if the songs are LSS-ing in your head

7. Giving me my vitamins every day

8. Helping Mommy when it’s time to give me a bath

9. Hugging and cuddling me

10. Showing me in so many ways how much you love me.

I love you very much, Daddy. Belated Happy Father’s Day to you. I am so happy you are my Daddy!

How old is Vito?
