we're still young and in love!

It's been two years since I’ve been married to a wonderful person. In these two years, I’ve realized over and over again just how lucky I am to be married to him. There’s no one else like him and if I were to go back to being single again, I would still want to be married to him. That is, if he would still find me to be the right one for him. I certainly hope so. You see, life is beautiful being with him. It even became more beautiful when we already have a daughter. Oh, how my life has really changed!

Tell You What

Sorry for this late update… but I already have a job! Yipeeee.. I haven’t written anything for awhile now because I’ve been busy with my newfound career online. Yes, I’m happy to know that I got a job that I also love doing and it’s not keeping me away from home. I still have to work full eight hours a day though so I get to check on Dipdip with her nanny downstairs when I do my breaks. I’m just happy and grateful to the Lord for giving me the job that I wanted and just when we already needed it.

So, this is again another proof of God's unfailing love. People may turn their backs on us but the Lord will never abandon us in our time of need. There may be tough times but all these will make us stronger and wiser. And more GRATEFUL for His LOVE! I’m giving back all these to the glory of God. Thank You Oh God for sending me my new employer. Thank You for making all these things possible. Thank you for being such a sweet GOD! In You will we always put our trust.

Baby’s First Solid Food: Cereals!


Right on her sixth month, we started feeding Dipdip with baby cereals, her very first solid food. Following the pediatrician’s advice, we began with just two to three tablespoons of the cereal to check and see how her body would react to the solid food each day and to make sure also that she will not have any problems with food allergies. After that, we can gradually increase her intake as soon as she gets used to the solid food that was introduced to her and especially when she begs for more.

We’ve been warned not to overfeed though. We will have her try different kinds and flavors of cereals, one at a time. So, aside from taking her milk supplement, she will have baby cereals three times a day for her breakfast, lunch and dinner. I was also told that we should make sure that she didn’t take her milk two hours before her scheduled feeding so that she would still have some appetite for the solid food. Right now, she’s still trying to like eating her cereals. It’s such a mess when she’s being fed but it’s alright because she’s still trying to get to know her food. As with my first experience, not only was she messy, she would also try to grab the spoon that I used to feed her on. I wasn’t prepared for it, and so she succeeded and had a good grip of the spoon which she immediately put in her mouth. Thankfully, I was able to retrieve it back from the female baby version of Robin Hood! LOL
