It was one of those days again that I always looked forward to, seeing Nate after a month of just occasionally saying hi and hello at Viber. Every time they come over, I get to notice how he has grown in a month (he doesn’t look like a toddler anymore but a young boy), I get to notice how much he has learned. The playfulness is still there though and sometimes, Nissa gets to shout out loud because he is always running around. It is quite hard to take photos of him now but I managed to take some shots before they left.

Look at that, he seemed so engrossed making doodles on my notebook.




He readily gave up drawing though when he saw us watching a video on Nissa’s phone. Still holding his pencil, he watched the four-year old boy talking rapidly and pointing to a computer screen like he was a pro.





As if it was not enough, he has to raise his foot atop the bed to get a better look. I showed him the pics later and he just smiled. It really made my day…making memories with the family 🙂

He was clutching a 235 ml box of Selecta Moo Chocolate Drink which he got from the ref. I told him, “Come here, I’ll teach you how to read” at the same time pointing to the letter M written in the box.

Nonna: M

Nate: M

Nonna: O

Nate: O

Nonna: O

Nate: O

Nonna: How does a cow sounds like? Without second thought he shouted, “Moooooooooooo……” with such panache I can’t help but laugh. Every time they come over, he always checks the ref if he has a box of  Chuckie chocolate drinks inside.

I earned a kiss and a hug after that.

When he was a year older and learned a few words, he used to shout “buy robot”  to everyone who was willing to listen. When he turned two, he cuddled a Mickey Mouse toy bigger than he was. A few days ago, he loved the kitchen and enjoyed those moments pretending how to cook.  See how happy he was seeing a figure of Spiderman. Isn’t it obvious he is a fan?


Look how amazed he was seeing this figure and he was wearing the same Spiderman t-shirt.


A picture of a happy kid.

I envy those moments an innocent child bring into this world – picture of bliss and happiness, carefree moments that bring joy and smiles. You wish sometimes that you could go back to being carefree as a child without the gargantuan responsibilities that you have to face. You wish sometimes that you could wear a genuine smile on your face and live life simply. Sometimes you wish you were a child again.

Just can’t pass this off. Look at our big boy learning the rudiments of cooking. Who knows, he might be our Chef Nate someday.
