missing ninang and lolo

The little one feels there is something different in our current set up. There are some missing players in her day to day life… lolo and ninang have been away for almost a week! It’s lolo’s first time to go back to the province he grew up in since he got married. I’m sure it must have been bitter-sweet the first time he alighted from the plane. Sweet because of the memories, bitter because of the reason why he had to go there… his brother died. The brother who took care of him and his siblings when they were still little kids… died because of complications from a spinal injury.

Anyway, the little girl keeps on looking for them. It has been days since she last saw ninang and lolo. When she asks for them, I tell her “they’re riding an airplane”, then she’d pout and say sadly, “Bea, iwan” (They left Bea). When they were able to talk to her on the phone she told ninang, “uwi na ha, ukas!” (come home tomorrow!) every morning, she is by her lonesome when she jogs…or at least as she zooms to and fro in front of our house. She is lolo’s designated jogging buddy. Good thing though that her lola from daddy’s side is here in the country for a visit so she occupies the little one’s mornings. After hearing the daily mass at the church near our house, she would pass by to play with kulit. =)

Good thing Saturday’s coming soon, ninang will be home by then! One less person to miss! =) little bea will be super happy for sure!

the early bird catches the worm

Whenever my alarm goes off in the morning, I hit the snooze button a couple of times until I have not other choice but to grudgingly get out of bed to take a bath. I am really not an early riser, probably because I stay up late at night scrapping or blogging. My little one however is a perky little ray of sunshine, who needs one one or two minutes to recharge before she is her usual bubbly self raring to conquer the world!. So unlike her grumpy mommy. One thing that’s amusing about her too is that once she starts squinting her closed lids, a tell tale sign that she is slowly coming to, she will then sit up, even with her eyes closed and then slowly she will open her eyes. Except for rare occasions when she is not in the mood, she would immediately smile, then either play with our cell phones or demand to watch barney on DVD.

It just amuses me that she is a morning person. =) I hope she stays the same until she is going to school already, that way it won’t be too hard to wake her up to get ready for school. And as they say, the early bird catches the worm!

the entertainer

I never would’ve thought she had it in her. My daughter is turning out to be such an entertainer! I guess when a kid is healthy, it affects even her disposition in life. she used to be serious and lethargic, but when her vomiting was minimized and she started getting chubby, she has since transformed into an adorable little tot who’s all sunnny, and bubbly, and boinky-boinky! She’s learning so many words, although her speech is not yet that straight, but you can tell she means what she is saying. She has so much charm, and mind you she knows how to use it! When we scold her for being naughty, she knows how to snuggle up to us, make endearing noises, and actually coax a smile out of us. You really can’t stay mad at her for too long!


Hmmm… I hope she stays this way always, she’ll make a career out of it… in sales! Hahaha!
