Mommy Moments: Give Love On Christmas Day!

Posted by Cecile at Friday, December 17, 2010 7 comments
Talking about gifts to be given this Christmas, I'll say that the best thing I can give to someone is my unconditional love. I can easily give it to my family who loves me for what I am. Hubby told me not to give him any tangible things for he doesn't need them. All he asks is for me to be happy and get well. I can also see it when I look at my son's eyes. His cute little eyes tell me that he loves me and he understands what I am going through. My son already gave me my present when he prayed for me and my health. He was crying then and so was I.

My gifts for Jacob is a mouse trap game (for that is what he asked for), for hubby, a Seiko watch (though he didn't want anything), and hubby's present for me is a Coach purse. Isn't he generous or what?

My immediate families, relatives, friends at church and outside my faith had given me the gifts of love when they offered prayers and help during this trying times of our lives and we are grateful for that. This gift can never be bought neither replaced. It will be treasured forever in my heart.

Heavenly Father (God) is the perfect example of a generous gift giver when HE gave His Son (Jesus Christ) for us. No one in this world will ever do that, but HIM.

Now, what do you think you can give to Jesus and Heavenly Father this Christmas?

As for me, I would try to give service to anyone I know who are in need. Be more patient with my son, appreciate my husband more, and tell my parents how much I love them in words.

How about you? Share your love this Christmas by going to....

Posted by Cecile at Tuesday, December 07, 2010 0 comments

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Boudreaux's Butt Paste. All opinions are 100% mine.

I am pretty sure that a lot of parents particularly mothers would agree with me when I say that Boudreaux's Butt Paste is their babies best friend when it comes to diaper rash care. I have tried quite few diaper rash ointment for my son when he was still a baby and I tell you only this was the only one that really worked. I like that it goes on and cleans off easily, aside from it also treats diaper rash and soothes irritated skin. This butt paste has a pleasant scent; I am so glad his doctor about recommended it to me. No more crying baby when it is time to change the diaper!

Boudreaux' Butt Paste was very effective enough to be featured on tv shows such as Oprah, Tonight Show, Today show, While You Were Out, ESPN and magazine like People mags. One more thing is that this comes in convenient sizes of 1oz, 2oz, 3oz and 4oz tubes, 16oz jar; so you can carry it with you wherever you go. Do you want to try it? If so, then you should visit their site to get a free sample of Boudreaux's Butt Paste. I assure you, you will be glad you did! I will definitely recommend this butt paste to all my friends and family around.

Mommy Moments: So Little

Posted by Cecile at Saturday, November 20, 2010 4 comments
When Jacob was borne, he only weigh 4.3 lbs. He was so tiny for his age. The reason is that he was borne two months early (preemie). And so he stayed at NICU for a month just to gain weight; he had no medical condition that needs treatment or anything like that for that matter. So here are few of the photos taken three days after I delivered him on c-section. T'was our first time to see each other and my first time to hold him.

Inside the incubator....
Me holding him for the first time....
Here with the very happy and proud Dad :-).
And with his very proud first time grandparents. My share on this week's....

Jake Lost His First Tooth.

Posted by Cecile at Monday, November 15, 2010 4 comments
Jacob lost his first delicious tooth this morning. A week prior to that, he has been telling and showing us his loose tooth. Finally, when he woke up this morning, that tooth came out! He was very excited for whatever reason, lol. The thing is that we couldn't find it anywhere on the bed. It is probably somewhere on the floor in our bedroom. The tooth fairy on the other hand put a dollar under his bed the next morning, and Jake was very happy! One thing for sure, my son is growing so fast and I couldn't stop it. I want my baby boy back!

Missing Karate Lessons on Wednesdays

Posted by Cecile at Wednesday, November 10, 2010 3 comments
This day light saving time is not rally helping me nor Jake and his Dad at all. I prefer waking up still dark in the morning than taking my son to his karate lessons on a dark 6 o'clock evening. Yup, for the first time, Jacob missed his Wednesday lesson. Why? because I don't want to deal on heavy traffic that time...and I don't want to drive at night period. I also hate that hubby has to drive to work on a busy interstate with those crazy Texas drivers. But what can we do? He needs to work and all we can do is pray for his safety. Crazy drivers almost drove him off the road twice and that terrified me. Thank God, he is always protected and safe. Talking back on Jake's karate lesson, we are very excited for the coming exam/test in December. His instructors are busy teaching them steps and movements to prepare for that event, hopefully Jake, Seth, and Nicolas pass the test so their white belt would be replaced by an orange one. He is pretty excited....just the thought of getting new belt inspires him to listen and concentrate more to what his instructors have to say and do.

His loves for books tells me that he also like square. He loves to read books with me and by himself...and so we always go to the library to borrow books. This little guys will never sleep without reading books first. Blocks and Legos are his most fave toys.

Our Karate Kid

Posted by Cecile at Sunday, October 24, 2010 6 comments
Three weeks ago, we enrolled Jacob at Karate School. We are glad he liked it the first time he attended the try out. He loves attending his Tiger Tots class with all the younger kids. He goes 4x a weeks for 30 minutes each sessions. For Eeighty nine bucks a month, it isn't bad at all. We signed up a 6 months contract with a hope that Jake would learn more about discipline, focus, respect, self control, and strong body to name some and how important these things for his growth and welfare.

In his Tiger Tots class, there are seven of then...six boys and a girl. It is fun watching them learn basic movements and have fun at the same time.

One Chilly Morning

Posted by Cecile at Sunday, October 17, 2010 2 comments
The weather has been nice lately. I can really feel that Christmas is past approaching. Oops, wait a minute...what I meant is fall. Yes, fall is here and I am loving it. It is chilly in the morning and that is why my son wears sweater and sometimes light jacket to keep himself warm when walking to school with us. I took this one last week; as you can see, even though it was cold then, he still mane to smile. Oh how I love it when my son is in the mood for a shot.

Isn't he cute? I love that the sweater looks good on him.

Jake's Very First RainCoat

Posted by Cecile at Wednesday, October 13, 2010 3 comments
Two months ago, we all woke up one morning and saw that it wan raining very hard. Before walking our son to school, I suggested to hubby that instead of walking Jacob to school that he'd better drive him instead. But he replied saying that it was okay to walk. If that is what he wanted to do, then I will not complain. Knowing our son, he wouldn't want to get wet and have his umbrella get twisted and be thrown by the wind. And so, I let him do what he wants; 10 minutes later, they came back all wet and mad with each other, plus Jake was crying and it upsets me. Oh well, I try not to say 'i told you so' but that time I didn't care...i said it. He then drove our son to school.

Anyway, that same day, we went ahead and bought our son a raincoat and a pair of boots at Walmart for they don't have any at the mall. Unfortunately, it never rain again since. The raincoat and boots were kept in the closet. Then one day, it rained a little bit, Jacob excitedly said that he wanted to wear them as he plays paper boat on the little paddle of water in front of our house. Here is a shot I took before he finally went out and played with his Dad.

No Mommy Moments Entry

Posted by Cecile at Saturday, October 02, 2010 3 comments
This week's theme on MM is Jumping. I was sad because I wasn't able to join this week for I don't have even a single photo of Jake jumping :-(. I wonder why I didn't think of asking him to jump so I can take picture of him actually jumping. I bet he would really like hat. I better ask him so I can post a late entry. Anyway, I would just be contented visiting entries and have fun with cute kids jumping alone or with their friends, and families. Have a great weekend everyone!

We've Found New Friends!

Posted by Cecile at Tuesday, September 28, 2010 1 comments
This week, we attended a Family Fun Night at my son's school. It starts at 5:30pm with a free dinner (pizza and soda), followed by activities the school prepared for the kids with their parents. When we were eating dinner, my husband told me that the woman seating next to the table we were in is a Filipino. He asked me to talk with her, but I was hesitant because I wasn't really sure whether she is indeed a Pinoy. So hubby took the liberty of asking her and he was right! They are Pinoys; to make the story short, we talked and were able to get to know each other while our sons attended activities together. Not only I've found a friend, but also a walking buddy :-). Since then, we talk over the phone everyday and also walk on the park. Thank goodness, I finally found a friend, and she is a Filipino! Our sons are friends, too and belong to the same class.

Cake and ice cream....
spaghetti, his most fave it at snack time or any time of the day.

Jacob's First Day of School

Posted by Cecile at Wednesday, September 22, 2010 2 comments
Here's a couple of pictures I took before my son went to school this fall. He looked happy and excited here, but it was actually the opposite. He had anxiety that time and didn't want to go to school. His anxiety lasted for two weeks. Hubby and I were relieved when he finally came back to his old self. He loves going to school again and is very excited every morning.
