My baby’s 1st winter

Winter has already started earlier this June. When we came back here last March, the temperature was already cold like having a centralized aircon. Unlike the first time we went here in January, the temperature that time reached to 40 deg Celsius

This is our first winter! Yey!

We didn’t bring any winter clothes so we bought some for Marshall.

Luckily, there was a 50% sale from online shopping at Pumpkin Patch so we shopped for him. There were a lot of cute baby and big boys/girls winter clothes but we just bought a few. IMG_0036

It only took 3 days for me to receive the delivery.

He then tried on the jackets and here he is. 🙂

The fabrics are thick yet very comfortable.

On the other hand, the boots were bought from gumtree. The item was still in mint condition and we actually got it from a Filipino seller. When he learned that we just moved here in Sydney, he and his wife gave away several toys for Mashall, in addition to some cleaning appliances.

Though at times we heard a lot of unpleasant experiences of our fellowmen , dada and I feel really blessed that we are able to meet some of these people that despite the fact that they have gone so far, you can still feel their unbelievable generosity and genuineness especially to individuals like us who are still on the process of stabilizing ourselves in this new environment. And that is one of the values we would want Marshall to learn and adapt until he has his own identity.

Here’s our short video for his first winter modelling 😉

To ensure he would have a good rest this winter, (and other seasons as well), I’ll set up a comfortable sleeping mattress for him. You may check out Kokopax baby mattress. 🙂

photo shoot

We were already 7 months when we did our pregnancy photo shoot. My friend Bihlay and her husband Pangpang were the ones who invited us to do the shoot. I and ama, suggested that we should just do it at home, since we want it to be private and because Bihlay was also pregnant at that time, we do not want her to be tired as well. And of course, because we were frugal, we do not want to pay extra for renting out place and for buying unnecessary stuff. 

Can you believe it that it turned out very well without even spending?
Here are our pregnancy photo shoot baby 😉

My stuff toys also did a great color enhancement on the photo. “Peachy”, the big peach bear was ama’s valentine gift for me.
The green frog bear beside Peachy was a Christmas gift from Tita Tetet.
That cute little penguin is a freebie from a food store.
And have you noticed the photo on the wall? It was ama’s drawing for me during the time we were on LDR. *kilig*

It was indeed a fun and memorable experience working with Bihlay and Pangpang. We were very at ease and comfortable with them and their photos are truly amazing! Plus the fact that it was cost-free. Well, in gratitude, i cooked something for them. weeh!

your BIG DAY

November 07, 2013

@ De La Salle University Medical Center

This was where we stayed after your delivery. If I’m not mistaken, this was a single private room. We didn’t opt for a bigger room since we were positive that I will have a normal delivery and we would not be staying long. IMG_2594

The room has a single bed and a couch. With TV and fridge. IMG_2596

That’s Mama waiting for me while I was in the delivery room.  These pictures were taken by Tita Belbel. Two of them accompanied me to the hospital. IMG_2597

baby shower

September 09, 2013

Of course your parents are very frugal, so again, we decided to celebrate our baby shower.. where? at home. 🙂

It was just a simple yet fun celebration. We decorated the house. We cooked some foods. Some of our friends and colleagues were there to celebrate your upcoming arrival.IMG_2073

Yey! It’s a boy! Those are DIY decors and made use of mom’s stuff toys for additional design.

DIY souvenirs: These are Hersheys chocolates which we just covered the other letters with pen marker and left the letters “HE” just to reveal that it’s a boy!IMG_2107
