Luigi: 3 months

My darling Luigi ~

You turned 3 months last December 8th. T'was the feast of the Immaculate Conception and we thought that it was marvelous timing to celebrate life ~ your life!

You have been steadily gaining weight this month and have grown quite rapidly, in my opinion. You are a very talkative baby, do you know that? Your constant cooing, giggling and ooohh's often fill the room with much joy. Sometimes, you seem to act like your sister when she was your age but also sometimes not. I believe that you have a character of your own and we are more than excited to know your very own temperament.

We celebrated your 3rd month with spaghetti, eggpie and ginataang mais (your Grandma made it just for you!).

With your Grandma staying with us for the past weeks, you have grown to enjoy being carried and rocked by her. You love it when she holds you in the rocking chair and how cute you tenderly fall asleep in her arms. I'm sure you feel the love and care that she has for you!

Meantime, your sister also shows how much she loves you by always wanting to kiss you in the forehead. She likes to act like Mommy by repeating what Mommy usually whispers to you, "Luigi, baby boy, sweetheart....". She likes to say that over and over again!

And how lucky you are for your Dad is truly very hands-on in taking care of you. He takes over looking after you and your sister whenever he can (he's a great Dad and yes, he wakes up at night to hand you to me for your feeding).

I feel truly blessed for having all of you, my 3 darlings, to come into my life. And for that, I'll be forever thankful to God.

The Simple Woman's Daybook - 12.08.09

I have been wanting to do this tag for the longest time. I think it's a very nice tag.

FOR TODAY (December 08, 2009)...

Outside My Window...the sky is slightly overcast. Christmas is just around the corner.

I am thinking...of my Christmas list and how I’ve managed to not to do it. Harhar. I'm also thinking of my Lola Maring. It's her death anniversary today. It broke my heart when she passed away.

I am thankful for...for my two children. They mean the world to me!

From the kitchen...we are preparing for Luigi’s 3rd month anniversary! There’s spaghetti, ginataang mais, egg pie (with a #3 number candle for blowing later!).

I am wearing...a white blouse, gray skirt, gray Pashmina and silver shoes!

I am creating...a letter for my boss.

I am go to this emptied room a bit later and try to pump some milk for the baby.

I am reading.../was reading somebody’s blog and wish I could write like that too.…if only I can get my act together.

I am receive my very first pay by Friday (after more than 3 months of no pay). Yipee!

I am hearing...”Forevermore” by Side A on the radio.

Around the house...I have a bunch of things to clean up and organize. I guess I'll have to take that up when I get home tonight.

One of my favorite feeding my baby boy.

A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week: do some grocery shopping, go to confession, attend Zoe's Christmas party at Kindermusik, get-together with friends (karaoke maybe).

Here is picture thought I am sharing...*Zoe and Luigi last weekend*.

From my Inbox...

“Married life: an occasion for God’s presence on earth”

There are many good reasons to honor Saint Joseph, and to learn from his life. He was a man of strong faith. He earned a living for his family - Jesus and Mary - with his own hard work. He guarded the purity of the Blessed Virgin, who was his Spouse. And he respected - he loved! - God's freedom, when God made his choice: not only his choice of Our Lady the Virgin as his Mother, but also his choice of Saint Joseph as the Husband of Holy Mary. (The Forge, 552)
