Charlton's 6th Birthday

Today is my only boy's 6th birthday and I know this time I made him and his sister happy.  It was not a big celebration but still happiness and contentment are evident on their faces because of the presence of their friends and the parlor games we had.  It really is very easy to please them and make them happy so I don't know why I took it away from them last Christmas.


To Charlton:

You may be full of mischief with your pranks and everything headache-y but I know you are a good boy with a kind heart.  You are the "KUYA" of our home and I know I can count on you to take care of your sisters. Just bear in mind what I told you to remember always, that we love you no matter what. Happy birthday, Darling!

A Sad Christmas for the Kids

Let the spirit of love
gently fill our hearts and homes.
In this loveliest of seasons
may you find many reasons for happiness.


So how was your Christmas? If you ask me, it was just okay.  But if you ask my kids, it was not.  I can't blame them.  It is all my fault and I regret taking the happiness away from them. 

First, I didn't put up Christmas decorations in our house, not even a Christmas tree because I was kind of mad pissed when our Christmas decorations got lost in the storage room and I lost the interest to buy a new one.  I didn't realize that by doing so I took not only the Christmas spirit in our house but also the excitement of the kids to celebrate Christmas.  You see, they believe in Santa Claus and this year, they didn't receive any gifts from Santa because they don't have a Christmas tree to hang their socks on.   Oh, I'm so sorry kids.

But it seems I was not contented with what I have done.   I hurt their feelings more when I didn't hold a party for them, a party they were used to enjoy with their friends/neighbors for years.  They were longing for that party because they love to play parlor games, eat nonstop and sing the karaoke with their friends (no need to buy karaoke cds since we only rent a karaoke machine). But sadly, they had none of those because I was being selfish.  I slept right after the Christmas Eve dinner!

I know I was wrong and I was sorry for that.  Anyway, I talked to my kids, Champagne and Charlton, and I told them I will make up this New Year and of course, next Christmas will be an unforgettable one for them.

Little Angel At Eleven Months

Early this morning, she can barely walk a few steps.  Just before noon, here's her progress...


Yes, she can walk alone! And to think she just turned eleven months yesterday! Amazing, right?  Well, she was happy that she can finally walk that she spend most of the afternoon having fun cruising the house, standing each time she falls and plastering a big smile every time she arrives on our arms or on a nearby furniture.

Everyday, my little girl never fails to amaze me and worry me at the same time.  Now, that she is constantly moving around, I am scared to let her out of my sight even for just a few seconds. I am never overprotective, though,  as I want her to learn.  Of course, I am watching over her safety more so now that she loves to climb the stairs.  My! She's got so much energy that I feel drained by the end of the day but that is nothing compared to the joy that she brings to us.  I love it that she deeply adores her siblings, Champagne and Charlton and that the two feels the same to her. Smiley

Milestones:

  • she can walk alone!
  • dances when she hears fast-paced music
  • points to her fingers if asked to count and claps her hands afterwards
  • puts her hands on her mouth when asked to give a flying kiss
  • plants her open-mouthed kiss when asked
  • loves to play peek-a-boo
  • pulls up to standing position from sitting position
  • stands alone well
  • is getting talkative but most of them incomprehensible Smiley
I can't wait to celebrate her first birthday and that would be less than a month from now.  Smiley
