DREAMS AND ESCAPES

The very first time I blogged about you, I wrote this

 “I’m just so proud of you baby. You make my heart swell with love. So what they say is true, having a grandson is one of the best things that can ever happen in one’s life. The joys of seeing you at last – unconditional love, immeasurable happiness”

On your first birthday, I wrote this letter to you:

“HAPPY, HAPPY BIRTHDAY darling baby Nate. Yeay, and you are counting 🙂 How time flies, now you can walk on your own even if they’re just baby steps. It’s time to see the world from a higher place and discover many, many things dear to your heart.

I can’t believe it, was it only a year ago when your Dad and I patiently waited for you to see the world and hear your first cry? Was it only a year…

DREAMS AND ESCAPES

Last Tuesday, my son-in-law Obet brought Nate to the hospital after his class. Nissa was napping when they came and when he saw his mom, he asked his dad if he could kiss her. He said he’ll be careful not to touch her bandaged throat.

As soon as Nissa woke up, Nate gave her a folded note which he placed inside the plastic box of Nissa’s rosary. How sweet of him, this was what he wrote.

He was so attentive of Nissa, giving her water to drink and he even talked to the nurses and doctors when they did their rounds. One of the nurses asked him if he wants to be a doctor too and he answered “yes”. We just smiled  and when Nissa’s doctor asked where he was studying, he readily answered, “ICAM”. The doctor smiled and said that it is probably one of those international schools…

He Made It Again

Nissa calls this “pampagood vibes”, that feeling of being positive and grateful for all the graces that comes Nate’s way.

He is a grader now (Grade one)in the same school where he spent his kindergarten. His hard works and efforts are rewarded.

Great job Nate. Nonna is proud of you 🙂

 

Bida Daw O

Nissa says, “parang bida sa sinaunang pelikula (a lead actor in an old film). I laughed but I love his smile. A typical Nate smile, bigay na bigay.

And here’s the colored version of this pic.

The whole  month of August is a celebration of Buwan ng Wikang Pambansa where we give thoughts and importance to our own language, Wikang Pilipino. I should be blogging about this in Pilipino but I am not that good in writing one. Just hear me speak 🙂

Welcoming the month with a smile although a little subdued at that. Guess what? He is missing two front teeth. The garb is definitely Pilipino.

Those Moments

Sometimes I often smile and laugh about Nate’s poses in front of the camera. He has a signature pose which he learned  years ago when he joined an acting workshop one summer.

He looks like an endorser of a fruit juice ad 🙂

Some of my friends say that his looks is more on the side of the Abuel which is my maiden name. Some say he looks more like one of my brothers. I say, it’s more like Nissa and Obet combined (but of course).

Mother and son, enjoying the moments together. This was also taken yesterday when they celebrated Father’s Day.

the kiss….

That’s how he kisses when in the mood with a tight hug and tight embrace. Nissa said, “araw ni Daddy ngayon pero may eksena pa rin si Mommy”.  Yeay 🙂

Happy Father’s Day

I remember blogging about that photo five  years ago. How he has grown. Happy Father’s Day to all the wonderful fathers out there.

Look Daddy, I am big boy now, says Nate.

Yes, our little boy has grown up.
