Great Sunday gift

What a great way to start Sunday! I heard Azuki laugh for the first time :) 


Here’s to a happy Sunday dear friends! In my next posts, I promise to lie low on the baby front :P

On August 2, 2012 at 3:26 a.m., a little angel came into our lives.

To you, our dear friends, we proudly present to you our Beanie: Azuki :)

The first photo I took once she roomed in with me at the hospital.

B and I can’t believe you’re finally here, Azuki… I just knew our pet name would suit you, especially when you’d start crying and go beet-red when hungry. ;-)

More to come, folks. ‘Til soon.

April: What we’ve been up to.

Hi dears!

I’ve missed you. What have you been up to? :)

April’s been a busy month for me… Well, considering that my pregnant self usually spends my days asleep! Haha! Anyway, here’s what I’ve been up to:

Reading up. Now that I’m on my 24th week (!!) of pregnancy, I’ve been trying to catch up on my reading. B bought me the “What to Expect” books as soon as I found out I was infanticipating, and every now and then, I’d pick up the Dr. Seuss-inspired book and read to Beanie.

(I love the preggy books, but B and I have joined a birthing class this month to find out more about what to expect… I know people say that once Beanie comes out, I’ll end up throwing 90% of what I’ve learned out the window, but – trying to know as much as I can now helps me cope with motherhood anxiety.)

On Pinterest

Hello dear!

Lately I find more and more friends joining Pinterest. Are you one of them? :)

Back when I was planning for our wedding, I found Pinterest even more useful for me than Evernote (another reliable app for today’s bride) — Mainly because I needed pegs more than I needed the notes, and pinning on Pinterest actually helped me edit my ideas (because I didn’t want to wantonly pin everything I liked onto my board). Since then, my boards have expanded to my ideas for our home, my food cravings, for future little B, and whatever else floats my boat.

While some might say Pinterest is largely a woman’s domain, I love it that B’s an avid pinner too – among his boards I particularly like his collection of infographs and home decor.

So are you on Pinterest? Please do share with me your boards, I’d love to take a look :)

Hope your week’s been going well!

One month and one day later…

Hi dear!

It’s been a month and a day since our wedding, and here’s what I’ve realized:

1) I still have yet to learn how to cook kare-kare.


2) B and I still love going through the wedding photos and videos that we have so far :)

Here’s what the wonderful team of Mimi and Karl did for us on that day:

And here’s our same-day edit from Ralph Alejandrino’s team:

3) And lastly, wifey-hood just keeps on getting better.

Hope you’re having a great week, so far! More stories from us soon :)

Big hugs,

– P.
