My Boy Is Growing Up So Fast

Watching him discover every little new things is such a joy. 

We're the ecstatic parents when we first saw him walk on his feet. When he uttered few words like "Dada" "Mama" and the famed and funny "Tekko! Tekko" which in my guess sounds like "Thank you" are awesome to hear. 

I remember those days when he's just on his back lying in bed, flashing his innocent smile whenever he sees someone rushing towards him. How he's so excited when he knows that someone lifts him up and cuddle up with a tender hug.

Our boy is not selfish showing his smile, but you need to have that funny resolve for him to engage on smiling and laughing soundly. 

They always say, "You have to enjoy every moment with your child because once he grows up, those precious time won't come back anymore". And they are right. That's why we make it a point that we don't miss every inch of activity he's doing.

And the funny and quite awkward realization is that as he grows up, we are also bluntly reminded that we're growing old too- lols! I don't know if I'd be happy to realize that haha! But heck, I'll just treat each day as it is and won't mind of that freakin' calendar posted somewhere inside our house haha! Well, as long as we're doing the right thing as parents, Little C growing up would just be a story that I'm excited to tell each and everyday.
Truth to say, he's the reason why I still wake up early in the morning even if I only had three hours sleep. 
Seeing him smiling besides us and like telling me, "Hey! Dad, it's time to wake up, let's play outside" is paramount to unequalled happiness only a child of your own can bring. And with that I'd say, that's the greatest joy parents can treasure in a lifetime. 

Time flies fast indeed, on February 5th, he's turning one year and four months. 

And by end of June or early July, another angel will be joining him and our family.

    1. We have to dress him up kasi sayang kung di niya isusuot since they are all gifts from ninong and ninang haha. Pinapasuot na namin kasi ang bilis niya lumaki sayang kung di niya masusuot. Truth is a number of clothes na ang di na niya nasuot kasi nakalakihan na niya. Kanina nga nung binuklat ng wife ko ang mga gifts na unwrap pa, may mga di na kasya sa kanya. Tsk, tsk, sayang pero sana boy ang 2nd baby para mapamana. But we wish for a girl sana.

      We're so blessed to have the ninongs/ninangs kasi di kami bumibili ng damit niya lagi kasi ang dami niyang gifts na damit. Kanina nga nag sort out kami ng wife ko ng mga damit niya kasi we segregated yung mga pang 2-3 years old niya pa masusuot. All coming from ninongs/ninangs.

  5. Kung ako man ang magkaroon ng ganyan kabibo, smart at ka adorableng bata, e kahit one hour na tulog okay lang hehe. Ako kasi ang tipong protective at maalaga sa mga bata, how much more kung anak ko pa. Sa totoo lang gustong gusto kong pinagmamasdan ang bata yung in deep sleep nya, so peaceful and innocent looking.

    Congrats at on the way na pala ang pangalawang prince o ang unang princess ng family nyo hehe, so magiging kuya Caleb na pala sya in his first year. Wow ambilis!

  9. Di ako mahilig sa bata Dad pero totoo, baby makes you a little less tired and a lot happier about life esp after work or waking up in the morning. Napaka contagious ng smiles nila. So pure, alam mong it's all pure happiness discovering the world around him.

    1. Thank you for the compliment! I guess, it's the best thing to do while he's still young - to capture each moment and create memories for a lifetime.

      Bawi ka nalang once you have a family of your own. :) :)
