Archive for the ‘happy times with Nate’ Category

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.

Can’t help but smile a little at these photos of Nate as Peter Pan for English Week. Peter Pan…the boy who refused to grow up.

Nissa made the hat. That’s real feather on his hat. She bought the costume. You make a “pogi” Peter Pan Nate 🙂

At one year old, he was Captain America

At two, an F1 Racer

At three, Mr. Bones

At four, undead pilot

At five, a jet fighter pilot.

I wonder what will be next when he turns six.  We don’t really celebrate  Halloween unlike Christmas but at the various Bank of PI offices/departments where Nissa works, they do. They bring the kids and they have programs.  There are prizes for the  Best Costume for the kids and the best decor for Halloween.

Last night, Nissa sent me this photo of Nate’s awards for the first grading period of the school year. So happy to see that his efforts paid off.

He is number one in his class with an average grade of 96%. Nissa said that more than the academic excellence,  she is  more happy about his  Character Trait Awards – Batang Maasahan (a kid you can rely on), Joyful Thanksgiver,  Busy  Bee.  I could understand being a busy bee, he couldn’t stay in one place without looking for anything to do. As long as he is active, it’s okay.

Proud of you baby. it would surely be a nice celebration for us on Saturday and your awards are the best gifts for your Mommy who’ll be celebrating her birthday on Friday.

Love to keep this here too. Our big boy Nate’s latest photo  which Nissa took today.

I love that smile – a  little shy, somewhat naughty but always a happy one.

The other Saturday when they came over, I watched Nissa  make some reviewers for Nate for his first periodical exams this school year. so happy to this result.

So proud of you Nate, you made good again.

I still remember those days when I did the same thing for Nissa and Josef. I remember those days when I would  attend their recognition awarding. And the culmination was Nissa graduating as Magna Cum Laude in college.  I always said, “may pinagmanahan si Nate”. 

And as a reward, my son-in-law bought this for him, a  War Machine that Nate loves. He has previous toys of these action figures but he is  still collecting.

Giving rewards for a job well done motivates a child to do better.  And being smart inspires confidence.

Yes, some precious moments with Nate captured on cam. He is so fond of making those funny face. I  like it though because he always looks happy in front of the camera.

Play. Play. Play. Telling stories about school. Counting Jelly candies with Mommy. Nice bonding moments.

Posting some larger photos of Nate which Nissa took yesterday during the former’s PE field demo.

Haha, when he is not smiling he is making faces.

the typical Nate smile 🙂

 

Mommy and Nate

 

He is definitely taller than his classmates.

He learned that pose during his workshop at Trimedia International.

Just sharing with you some more photos of Nissa’s family when they took a three-day  road trip to Baler, Aurora. I always love those photos when I seem them enjoying the site and the place. If only I could post the videos here while they were at the waterfall.

Look at their happy faces probably anticipating an afternoon of beach walk and  swimming. Sun and sea – what a perfect combination.

I had a good laugh at this one, seeing  Nate balancing himself. Identical shirts? Haha!

Stage parents? Haha. I think Nissa and Obet enjoyed more than Nate did.

Cool! The Tondo boy looking more astig than his Dad.  What a really lovely place.

A typical Nate post. He learned it while attending a workshop a few months ago.

Ah, and this. A beautiful sunrise, a serene sea, a calm morning. It must be lovely to just walk and feel the morning breeze while watching the sun rises.

The song goes, “the deep blue sea”. Baler, when will I see your shores?

It will be the second time that Nate will participate in a week-long summer kiddie job at McDonald’s.  You have to pay McDonald’s for the one-week training but lunch for the kids are free.

Speaking of being so active, Nissa said that while the rest of the kids were silent, Nate kept raising his hands to answer all the questions. Questions like “why do you need to share an apron”, “whose favorite are  chicken McDo, burger, nuggets”? 

He is a very friendly little guy. Nissa has this to say:

So Nate and I had an agreement that he’ll only get a toy once he reaches a certain number of points. Points are awarded based on his chores at home, how he does in school, how he behaves, etc. He’s being very cooperative.. (YES! the plan is working!)

A while ago I told him I would give extra points if he could just sit still and behave. I could tell it was killing him, lol. He was trying his very best but when he couldn’t take it anymore, he blurted, “This is the way I am, Mom! I just can’t sit still and do nothing!”
Hahaha!


Sometimes, I can’t believe I’m talking to a 5 yr old. 

I told her Nate is five going twenty.

When you have a grandson this active, there is really no dull moment when he is around.
