Last 30 October, we had a fun time posing for a Baby Dove photoshoot by Little Heartbeat Photography. While Jaycelle was having her make-up and hair done, Bryce and I were filling our tummies with the catered food. Just in time when Jaycelle was ready, Bryce was in his best mood to do all his versions of the photographer’s cues. Grateful to be there with them in this fun activity.
Yesterday we were at Antipolo Beehouse to have our vow renewal on our fifth wedding anniversary. I brought my guitar and Bryce set himself to try the piano. Jaycelle, on the other hand, could have sang a song—if we managed to jive our music together.
Despite being a mother for already 2-years-and-2-months, you would think I’m acing motherhood like a pro. Contrary though, I still feel like a newbie just like when Bryce was a newborn baby. I still struggle, daily. Although the issues probably change per day, I couldn’t say if it’s getting better or worse.
Just the normal world of motherhood — the joys, the laughter, the challenges, the frustrations and the in-betweens.
2017 September 26. After our errand — food tasting for Tita Maxine’s baby shower at Amo Yamie Crib in Katipunan, we stopped by at the nearest bookstore to check out box supplies and inspirations for my Mrs. Gift Boxes business.
While scanning each aisle, I let Bryce walk on his own too. And to my surprise, not long after, he spotted Disney Cars Busy Book. He never left the book the minute he held it. He even sat down on the floor, browsing the thick pages, and at the very end of the book, there are the little Disney Cars toys hidden.
First time ever that he was signaling, communicating that he wants that book! He’s not going home without it. Naturally, seeing my little one like that, I was amused and joyfully surprised that he’s acting a different way. It’s as if he woke up today and he is a different boy once again. Growing and maturing each passing day. Just amazing.
Naturally, I gave in and bought that book. I hope you love it, my little Adam Bryce.
“Bungee Jumping of Their Own” is our movie of choice to cap off our Saturday night weekend. I asked Brian what genre was it, and he said it’s a Korean love story, and I got excited right away. Korean romantic movies have a reputation with me to be heart-wrenching yet so irresistibly good, and I wouldn’t pass up the chance to watch and experience the story myself.
Disclaimer: I didn’t read the synopsis of this movie, and had no idea and no expectation on how the story will unfold. I find this as an effective way to really be wowed by the movie, and I love it this way.
Set in 1983, it’s not the usual movies I’ve watched wherein I fell in love with the characters right off the bat. It came to me slowly as their story unfolds.
