mommy + me monday: + mum steals a kiss!


since i shared my very first kiddie fun ride experience a little while back, i want to share a couple of more photos we had back then. this time it was a photo of me + mum, whilst we line up for the queue to the funranch express. this snapshot was taken by my tita cecille.
the wait for the train ride took a while so we took the chance to snap some photos + mum even managed to sneak in + still a kiss from me. please don’t mind my hair, especially my bangs, it was one of those few occasions when mum is in the mood for another diy cut-my-baby’s-hair episodes, this is one of those that obviously went bad! 😉

kids in doodles: my very first merry-go-round

today i am sharing with you the first time mum  + went to funranch. mum has written about it in details here. this is also the first time i ride the merry-go-round and the ferris wheel. i was a bit scared at first but enjoyed it anyway. i was riding with mum since i am still a bit young to be riding on my own. apart from these rides, we have also tried riding the train (the funranch express) + crossing the hanging bridge. we would have tried the other rides too, but i was getting a little late + we need to go home. maybe some other time, i wil ask mum to bring me there again. i will be sure to sample each of the rides they have 😉

jared is 16 months!

calling mum on his mobile phone?
i simply can’t believe how time flew by so quickly, and i always marvel whenever i look at my son, in all his 16-month, 13-kilos-or-so, gooey, giggling and endearing glory. he grew up too quick i wanted to wish the time backwards to when he is just a tiny, little bundle in my arm.
he simply can’t stay put in one place…here with tita amy + ate ec
at 16 months, my jared can now:
  • make gestures with his fingers as if counting them
  • can actually count his fingers, but every bit is just “two”
  • point to mickey mouse behind our door when you ask him to
  • climb up and down our bed on his own
  • recognize the sound of fireworks and appreciates the pyrotechnic display
  • brush his hair whenever i give him his hair brush
  • point to the letters on his brainy baby board books while we sing “abc” to him
  • walk with a very steady gait
  • hold a crayon in his right hand and started making a big coloring book out of our room
  • appreciate his puzzle pieces but instead of putting them together he “shoots” it to his bucket instead
  • show emotions like frustration when he can’t work out his toys and boredom when he watches a video over and over
  • express his worry by looking at mummy when something goes wrong or alarms him 
  • out and about in moa
this year i expect we will be learning more and doing more fun stuff to enhance jared’s skills and abilities. i’d love to introduce him to coloring books and stickers, maybe we can go out more often and visit a park (maybe the one in the provincial capitol will do just fine). i am still on the lookout for swimming classes nearby so i can enroll him (and myself while i’m at it!lol!). 
i just can’t wait to have more conversations with my son too! and yes we will be going back to reading and cutting back on viewing time! so my apologies to pocoyo and barney if we will be seeing less of you, i have a growing baby to raise to meet his full potentials:)
note: pardon me if this post is several weeks delayed
