A year that was: '09

by - 2:03 AM

Whatta year it's been.. During this past year Anzu turned from a baby into a kid. Quite a transformation Only last year, she was just on the sidelines watching all the holiday fun.. and now? well...

Anyway, Im such a busy busy busy mom that I had all the time to review our 2009

It's really nice that I have something to read back, and remember the moments and the feelings all over again... I never imagined myself writing a diary or journal like about my life before, but I guess babies can turn you from a happy go lucky girl to a sentimental person

The thing is, I enjoy sharing my baby's life with you...

So here (due to boredom) I thought of compiling them with my chosen quotes from each post ... hope you enjoy my dramas... i actually cant believe i wrote those things ....

**Before, I couldn't imagine my life with a kid, until we have Her. I had so much dreams for myself. And now I can’t imagine my life without Her. My dreams are not only for myself, but for my family as well. My honey felt the same way...

creambunny_star.gif image by bams704Anzu not feeling well
**Ganun pala feeling being a MOm, konting sakit lang, di na mapakali.. I tend to forget she's sick whenever she smiles, pero back to being worried naman when she coughs.

**OH MY... it's been 3 months already,?... my baby is growing. She already weighs about 6 kilos =( Im happy but lil sad... I'll surely gonna miss her baby days. Before we know it, she's going to school already huhuh.. lol

Well of course I'm happy. I've seen her grow up this whole 3 months. We're together 24/7 (although sometimes I go out for shopping ). I see the changes that sometimes amaze us. I'm the one who see almost All her "first"..

creambunny_star.gif image by bams704Okuizume
Azumi has just turned 100 days . In Japan, a baby celebrates a ceremony called Okuizume which literally means first meal of one's life.

She really enjoys waving her hands while pumping feet during active hours
Her kicks are getting stronger. Her hands are trying to reach for something, but she still can't......

creambunny_star.gif image by bams7043 months and a week II
Its overwhelming when you see your child doing some new things... It's been a wonderful 3 months and 3 weeks with our baby now.Her smile is always been a good thing to start a wonderful day .

creambunny_star.gif image by bams704Anzu Laughing Outloud
**I just love her laughing like that.. my heart also screams

creambunny_star.gif image by bams704First Smile
**... newborn babies tend to smile alot especially when they are sleeping. Anzu smiles alot even when she was a day old. My camera was always besides me, waiting for her to smile.


creambunny_love.gif image by bams704First Vaccination
This is what I love in Japan. Children ages 0-6 years old have the priveledge of free check ups and vaccinations.

creambunny_love.gif image by bams704Preggy Pics
In my whole life... 00215.gif image by bams704Knowing we were 6 weeks pregnant is the happiest moment... 00215.gif image by bams704Being pregnant to our first baby is the most wonderful part.... 00215.gif image by bams704Giving birth to our lil princess is the sweetest pain I have ever felt.... Our lil Anzu gave meaning to our life....

creambunny_love.gif image by bams704My 4 Months Old Baby
** Giving up my job with a nice salary to become a full time stay at home m0mma (& a wifey) is all worth it. I wouldn't want to miss anything special from my baby's milestones of development.

creambunny_love.gif image by bams704Feeding Time
** When I was still pregnant, I was already determined to breastfeed my baby even though I didn't have the idea of how would I do it. I heard alot of situations that there are many moms who couldn't breastfeed their babies because they just can't...

3 months Milestones and Vids
** My baby has so many pictures... taking photos and videos of her are just one of my obessessions actually =)


nicole2-2.gif image by bams704OHINASAMA
i so much enjoy the Japan's rich culture. Im lucky to be part of it now because I have a Japanese daughter. Im glad to have a husband who whole heartedly shares their culture to me, and willingly like to teach our (future)children not only their culture, but also my culture =) I know, my kids will be happy and proud to be half Filipino and Japanese when they grow up . Coz you know, I know some half filipino kids who don't want to be labeled as filipino

nicole2-2.gif image by bams704Bath Time
One of my favorite routine of the day ( I guess my baby too ) is BABY BATH TIME . Perhaps this is the main part where we can bond with our lil dollie since I couldn't do it all by myself.

nicole2-2.gif image by bams704Jolly Anzu
** Having a happy baby is the best pleasures a mom (& dad) could ever have. I wish she stays that way til she gets old.

It shows that I'm getting serious with my babyblog. I dont even pay much attention to update my own page. m(。−_−。)m スイマセーン I feel a lil bit bad coz Im not inspired to write something about my own personal rants. It's all about my baby =) Im really obsess lol. (# ̄ー ̄#)ニヤ

nicole2-2.gif image by bams704Special Day
** Eversince she was born, I already stopped being the subject of a photo and started being the photographer. I just love capturing her photos and clips. Maybe because, I didn't have much photos of myself when I was a baby.

nicole2-2.gif image by bams704My Sassy ANd Smarty Baby
I never thought that babies could actually have high capacity to recognize or learn to read as early as 3 months. Thee are lots of video clips in you tube where you can see babies as early as 7 months are actually reading. It's really amazing.

nicole2-2.gif image by bams704Happy 6 MOnths Baby
** Where have the days gone my precious Baby Anzu? It seems like just yesterday in the delivery room With one final push you emerged from my womb I struggle to recall the exact words I said As they handed you to me, 3,080 grams of perfection

nicole2-2.gif image by bams704Mommy First Baby Bath
Maybe it's easier to handle babies over 6 months because they are not as delicate as the newborn babies. They know how to enjoy the running water. Makes the nervous Mom calm, and enjoy at the same time.

nicole2-2.gif image by bams704Happy Feeding
It's always a happy atmosphere whenever we feed our lil dolly princess especially now that She has learned how to swallow her paste-like foods.

nicole2-2.gif image by bams704Daddy Moment
** I'm sure every moms (like me) feel overjoyed when our husbands take time off to have a bonding time with our kids, especially when we see them having a good time even we're not around.


nicole3-1.gif image by bams704Anzu and Her Tita Nix
My baby adores her Tita Nikka, it was an instant love the first time they met each other. She giggles whenever she sees her. I'm just so glad they get along well. My sista's been helpful in baby sitting her pretty lil niece .

nicole3-1.gif image by bams704Happy 7 months Anzu
Looks like she will be cruising around in no time and keep us quite busier...

nicole3-1.gif image by bams704Rolling Back and Over
** WHere have the days gone by when I was too secure of leaving her for sec in the room, knowing she's not going anywhere =)!

nicole2-2.gif image by bams704My Bebe at 7 months
Nakakatuwa talaga and somehow nakaka-sad din knowing that our baby is growing up fast and before we know it, uma-attend na sya ng school huhuh. I'll miss our baby being just a baby... Although of course, we are so happy and excited to witness her discoveries

nicole2-2.gif image by bams704Kiki on Army Crawling
Wonder who is Kiki? That's Anzu.. her new nickname . I actually call her Pekpek Chan whenever I change her pampers. Lately, I got hooked with The OC series, one of the characters' nickname is Kiki.. there, I got the name.

nicole2-2.gif image by bams704Outdoor Fun
** Spending time with your loveones is a great way to keep a healthy relationship with them. There are many outdoor fun activities that can be done throughout the year... even in an ordinary day. Each season has tons of fun waiting to happen..

  6. Wow , grabe sa haba, parang isang nobela na, lol. Pero enjoy naman kami sa pagbabasa at pagtingin sa mga litrato ni Baby Anzu, lol. Parang naging journal na nga nang buhay ni Baby Anzu ang mga posts mo sa blog na ito. I'm sure pag laki niya ay sobra niyang iaappreciate ang lahat nang mga ginawa mo dito na talagang labor of love. Ang nagagawa nga naman nang pagmamahal nang isang ina sa kanyang anak. Thanks for the memorable post. God bless you all always.

  7. Pag isa pa lang talaga ang anak namomonitor lahat ng details hehhe. I love the 100 dyas celebration concept! Love the photos Bams!

  9. hala. kahaba nga. hihi. bilib ako sayo. talagang effort to the highest level ang pagjournal ng development ni anzu. i'm sure she will want to read this blog when she grows old enough to understand things.


  10. very nice collage mommy.. anzu is growing up prettier each day!
