Sam's My Very First Bible

This is one of Sam's first books. It was given to him by one of his godfather when he was baptized. I tried to read this to Sam when he was as old as Simon to develop his reading habit, but Sam is not very fond of books. He loves gadgets more. So this book had lain for quite some time in our storage cabinet upstairs along with other things of great sentimental value.

 My Very First Bible by OMF Literature

I took it out of storage weeks ago, and some other books, for Simon. Simon has been showing signs that he loves printed words and pictures. I always see him going over his Kuya's school books. Simon was happy when he saw it. He would then ask me almost every night to read it to him. Oops, let me rephrase, he would ask me every night to identify all the objects and animals in the book and to tell him what's happening in the simplest way possible. 
This is one of his favorite pages in the book. 
The story of Noah and the flood.

Wish Upon A Star

A few days after my birthday, I received a message on Facebook. Rather, I was tagged on a photo on Facebook. And I was so happy because suddenly one of my wishes was granted. My wish? To have a copy of Zia Quizon's album CD. And guess what, not only did a get a CD, I also got  a tumbler signed by Zia herself.

My Wacky Valentine :)

This is my wacky Valentine. His name is Simon. He thinks the eyeglasses suits him very well. He wanted to have his picture taken. We had lots of laughs and love on this 'photo shoot'.  He was embarrassed to give me flowers, LOL.

This little boy is one of my happiness. You may have seen the other one here. There's a third one and but he's ten and doesn't want his photos taken and blogged anymore. 

Have a great weekend everyone!

For the Love Of K-Zone

Basti's favorite kiddie magazine is K-Zone. It's on his wishlist every year. I promised him that as a Christmas gift, I'll buy him an issue every month. So we missed January because I totally forgot (bad mom), but he's sure not to miss the February issue. So I bought him one. And he was ecstatic.

Look Ma! - The Yellow Hawaiian Shirt

A few days ago, I found Kuya Basti's old Hawaiian shirt while sorting out clothes of the kids. It had only been used once, some six years ago, but it still looks brand new. The littlest boy saw it and wanted to try it on. He even asked to have his picture taken. He was such in good spirit with his yellow shirt! He almost made my heart skip a beat when he shouted, "Ma, tingin mo!" (Look, Ma!) He was on all fours on our plastic chair! I'm supposed to run to him but I did not, because he was laughing so hard showing off his bottom. He's enjoying the moment, being in front of the camera. Then, he was exercising. I didn't realize he's doing some push ups until he said, "Exercise ako." (I'm exercising.) A few minutes after, he was on the floor and decided he was a TIGER with matching GRRRR. Finally, he settled down after so many poses, said "Pagod ako." ("I'm tired.") and went to sleep a few minutes after.

The littlest one is a bundle of energy. He's also such a bundle of joy. He always manages to make me laugh out loud.
