#0019 – On my First Birthday

Dear Dad,

I’m not gonna lie. I love the party you both threw for me. That was a blast!

The pastor that dedicated me for the Lord is scary though. Is lifting me high and pass me around necessary? 🙂

These precious moments are quickly turning into memories. I am so happy that we create these moments. I will grow each day, but i will never outgrew these moments – seems like yesterday to me.

I’m looking forward on having a great childhood days. Way to go!

#0018 – First Time in My Dad’s Arms

Dear Dad,

August 19, 2015.

Mom told me you will arrive soon. Finally you’ll be able to come out from iPad! I have no word (literally) to express how I feel. I may look annoyed but deep in my heart I’m bursting with excitement! I’m so happy to finally see you! How do you look like? They said I got your eyes..


I prepared myself. I promised I will not be afraid.

When mom passed me to you, I instinctively clung to her. I did not let go, sorry to disappoint. However, I never took my eyes off on you. I familiarized myself with you. I saw how happy you were seeing me for the first time. Strangely, I felt secured having you around. There’s such inner peace.

We headed out for lunch. Then you reached out once again for me, I did not resisted this time. I can’t explain the feeling. We are both caught up stranded on the nick of time. That magical moment when my father finally wrapping his arms around me and carrying me. This is the fatherly love.

Then you started talking… A lot. Get my mom back, i need to cry.

#0017 – First Bite

Dear dad,

It’s an old cliche’ (call it superstition) that a child will inherit an attitude of whoever first put a food in his/her mouth. Guess what, mom did. #burn!

It felt awkward at first, since I’m used in sucking milk. But being a quick learner as my mom (refer to first paragraph dad, it works! You’re doomed..haha), I am accustomed to chewing in no time.

I ate a lot today. It’s fun, not bad for starter..made me sleepy though.

#0016 – Morning chat

Dear dad,

I woke up this morning with an urge to talk. Sounds are mumbling as I try to utter words only me can understand. Mom is also in a mood to chat. I stare at her as she keeps on talking, interacting with me. Every make-face brings smile in her face. Little did she knew that I’m trying (instinctively) to imitate her.

See snapshot below of our morning chat.

Here are the videos the other day. Dad, I’m making progress!

#0015 – Touch

Dear dad,

I’m getting curious of the face. Mom keeps smiling at me. Sometimes I thought I smiled back, If I had, I don’t know. I am fascinated with mom’s face. Such lovely smile; such tired, sleepless eyes; I love to touch it.. and slap in the process 🙂 (sorry, mom I can’t control my movement yet)

#0014 – Crawling

Dear dad,

As you know, I learned how to make ‘dapa.’ As I just can’t get enough, I just learned new skill today. I can crawl!

As awkward as it looks like, I crawl by pushing myself head-on – literally. I push my head forward, followed by my hands and feet. Mom will show you a video one day. You’ll be surprise how fast my learning phase is. The world has so much to offer, I can’t afford to slow down *wink

…just before I roll.

#0011 Evening Routine

Dear dad,

I feel sorry for mom. She’s awake all night. 

My limbs are getting stroger, my bones tougher. 

I’m a certified cryer – an awful one.

People call me junior, mom protests  – every time 🙂

Wish you were here.
