December Fun

Our Christmas get-away... even just for the night.

This was planned back in October but little Daniel stopped taking the bottle then so we had to reschedule.

Daniel is so happy to see me again after being separated for 12 hours.

The 49ers fan... Colts #1. SF #2.


look at what they do while I'm at work.

Derrick assured me he was within arms reach... just in case Daniel gets off-balance. oh yeah, I've heard that before.

As long as I don't see them at the ER.


Mummy's Day Off

It's mummy's day off! And I had tons of fun hanging out with her!

It was my first time at the New Central Library Downtown. Mummy picked up some books on CD (she says she is stuck in traffic during afternoon rush hour and wants to divert her frustration to praising God instead!)

Here are a few pictures of my day!

Posing in front of our tiny Christmas tree.

Mum got this for her tiny apartment. We still need to get a BIG one...

I love the lights!

My Papi decorated our tree. He placed it on our bay window. Mum loves it bec she sees the tree whenever she comes home from a long day at work.

Here's my sort of confused look taken at the library. I enjoyed looking at the "big mobiles" at the atrium. There were big snowflakes and big spiral things.
The elevators also have mirrors on the ceiling.


My first Thanksgiving

This is my first outfit on Thanksgiving... Papi was able to take a picture before I had an

This is my second outfit... Am I cute or what?
This is my Lolo Frank. yum, yum... They just finished eating the Thanksgiving feast!

I don't know what my mummy is doing... What a weird expression and my Papi got it on camera.

The family last Thanksgiving.

And I was the star!!!


Tough start

Back at work and it's day 2. Rough tough start.
My little one cried and cried at daycare today, looking for me. How traumatizing. We spent all day Sunday together and part of Sat (when I got back post-call from the hosp). He's asleep now and I had a chance to do a little bit of reading. Now I am off to bed...because it's another workday tomorrow. I do miss Daniel when I am at work. I have his pictures everywhere. I open this blog during my breaks. I have tons of picts of him here... Here are two more to add to my collection

We cheered for the Colts as they played against the 49ers. Derrick is a huge Niner fan. He was proud of their performance yesterday. #18 did not score a touchdown.


First week of school

Today is my 3rd day in school at Bishop Chatard Trojan Tots. I love mornings. When my mum and dad drop me off, I give everybody a big smile and tons of giggles. I have been going half days this week. The real, full-day thing is on Friday when my mum is officially going back to work.
I am still not fond of the bottle but I am working on it. I cry and cry a lot looking for my mum. So far, I have only taken 1/2 oz when my mum leaves me for half a day. Today is a slightly longer day. She has meetings at work, so I won't see her until after lunch. oh boy, I do need to take the bottle if I am really hungry!
Look at my 49ers hat from my Lolo Frank.

Simple Woman Daybook

The Simple Woman Daybook
FOR TODAY (October 11th)

Outside My Window... leaves falling, chill in the air. Fall is here.

I am thinking. . . I haven't written a simple woman daybook entry for awhile.

I am thankful for. . . my little one. Daniel is adorable. That cute smile, little coos and giggles! He is gaining weight like a champ! He doubled his birthweight already.

From the kitchen. . . Filipino soup called Sinigang and Bolgogee! also some salad and strawberries to complete my meal. Oh yeah,how about left over Dulce de Leche cheesecake. I did not finish the slice yesterday. Yum!

I am wearing. . . my yellow Hello Kitty pjs, green long-sleeved top from AE.

I am going. . . back to work in <3weeks.

I am reading . . . Nursing Mother, Working Mother, by Gale Pryor and Kathleen Huggins.

I am hoping. . . that Daniel will take the bottle again.

I am hearing. . . white noise from the baby monitor and the Colts game vs the Titans. yay for the Colts!

Around the house. . . definitely a place lived-in by a family with a little one. Swing, pack and play, blanket for tummy time, diaper bag, my sling.

One of my favorite things. . . spending time with my hubby. Unfortunately, we had to postpone our downtown anniversary get-away which was supposed to be last night. Daniel just refused to take the bottle this week. Daniel took the bottle before. He took expressed breastmilk whenever Derrick and I would go to dinner for 1-2 hours.

A few plans for the rest of the week. . .

  • It's Columbus day tomorrow. Thank you for the federal holidays. My hubby is free.
  • Pick up my dad's new (used) car!
  • Fall break - so the new mom group is not meeting this week.
  • But we are attending the breastfeeding support group on Thurs.

Here is a picture thought I am sharing. . .

I was a young new mom (still am) with my 2 day old baby just before discharge.

Thanks to Peggy for the links.


Loving every minute of my leave

I have been home for 11 weeks now. It has been 11 weeks since this cutie pie was born! He is getting so big. His current weight:12 lbs 7 oz. He needs 3 more oz and he'd double his birthweight.

We are making good use of our time together. I, as his mummy, am learning about him; definitely building this loving, strong attachment that will grow even stronger even when I go back to work.

Daniel and I have been attending a new mom class at the hospital where he was born. It's nice to connect with other moms and share ideas. We talked about preparing family meals today. Other topics we have discussed included: babyproofing the house, introducing solids, taking care of mom, parenting according to your baby's temperament. This free class is led by a peds nurse practitioner.


Love ya mum.

I will miss this lovely, handsome face! (when I go back to work)

This smile was for his dad! How heavenly.

"The colts were winning anyway, so I am taking a nap!"

The Delima family wore their Colts outfit!
Thanks Derrick for taking this picture!

Derrick is crazy for this little one.

Derrick's loves.

Derrick and I are celebrating our 3rd year wedding anniversary tomorrow. Having Daniel is definitely another milestone in our lives together. We are grateful to have each other and this little one.


Me? a problem maker? I don't think so...

I love this outfit. my mum got it for me.

NFL weekend kick-off! This is my lucky bib! (Thanks to my cousins: Nathan and Brayden)

I wore this bib yesterday and Mum's team (Indianapolis Colts) and Dad's team (SF 49ers) won their first game of the regular season. Yay!

This bath thing -- I am liking it.

I am 10 lbs 12 oz. check out my chubby cheeks.

This pict was taken at Auntie Vani's wedding last Labor Day weekend. My mum's friends are pretty. Look at Auntie Hannah and her sari. Auntie Katherine is the one on the left.

This pict was taken after mum changed my diaper and clothes this morning. I had an explosion -- poopoo leaked thru my onesie, sleepsack and... my dad and mum's sheets. I was feeding when this happened. I am not a problem-maker. not at all...
