Nate 12-24-20

Yes, we haven’t seen each other for ten months except through Messenger video chats until today. Another milestone in our lives seeing each other again.

No kisses except tights hugs and “I love you Nate” and “I love you Nonna” in between. He has grown so tall for an eight-year old.

Through the short time that they were here, we had lunch together  and Nate enjoyed playing with my revolving computer chair and he said that he liked it.  Nissa didn’t bought him one at home because she knew he would play  with it.

I gave him a set of pajama and Word Factory. I told him to enjoy playing with her mom and dad. It is a good educational game from seven to adult.

Nissa  and I took lots of pictures of course (for prosperity and remembrance).  We will choose which one to upload later.

I guess I won’t need to cook later for Noche Buena, we still have untouched food inside the ref and I ordered two roasted chicken for later.

MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ONE AND ALL.

That’s the smile I miss Nate. I do hope we could see each other soon. So glad to know you had a lovely birthday celebration.

This is the perfect time to explore more possibilities in life. Way to go. Keep up being a good, smart and talented kid. I miss you.

Time flies….really so fast!

Amidst this deadly pandemic, we  still strive to  have a normal life and one of it is enrolling our precious boy in second grade. They started their online class yesterday and Nissa told me it was a hard change from the face-to-face interaction done in school. All modules were uploaded online but a kid of seven would hardly know what to do without a mother’s supervision even if he can easily navigate his tab. Nissa bought him one a few weeks ago purely  for online learning. She said she was like a teacher unprepared in a single-student class. I told her, in time, they would adjust to it. Her problem is, her mother-in-law is not a techie and it might be hard for her to handle Nate’s online classes when Nissa and Obet  report to the office twice a week.

Good thing, Nate was really enthusiastic to learn. Nissa forwarded some photos of the spare room in their house converted to Nate’s study.

Second grade, school year 2020-2021.

Good luck baby. GOD BLESS YOU ALWAYS.

Nate was left home when  Nissa and Obet came to visit us  yesterday but Nissa sent these pictures of him taken today.

Chubby, chubby, tabachingching!

Look at his photos. I just laughed seeing him and I miss him all the more.

Look at how he poses in front of the camera with matching shades…haha!

Enjoying the water.

It still seems like summer here. The sun is in its full glory.

Ang mag-ina….bow!

Two front teeth still missing? They all look happy.

In all the more than four months that I haven’t seen him, he has definitely grown.

Good thing, Josef stayed at home today finally fixing my PC which I could not boot earlier. When you’re not used to posting on a tab, you get confused and it is quite hard.

Took some pictures of Nate when they came over for Christmas lunch. We played at the garden with his water guns.

 

Look at how focused he is in inspecting one of the water guns

 

Haha, he found a way to fill it with water easily.

 

The Blue Boy in action. He called himself that and he called me The Orange Lady.

 

I actually took a video of this…two minutes of bliss!

Here is his latest picture with his mom taken just yesterday. He has become a little chubby but I love how he looks now. He has even grown taller.

Haha, happy days are here again, I could finally post photos. Hopefully this  PC would last longer.

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.

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 🙂

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.

One of the amenities that Tree Top Adventure at Camp John Hay in Baguio offers is the Canopy Ride. Nate is a brave soul. He was not afraid to try everything. I had fun watching the video Nissa took when they were up in the air and Nate advising everyone to be careful or they might fall.  Too bad, I cannot upload it here. The Canopy Ride is a travel- through- trees 100 feet above the ground using a network of five motorized cables. You can see nature from a different perspective. It must be nice to feel the relaxing cool breeze of Baguio and the scent of pines.

Ready for the ride Nate?

Weren’t you afraid of the height?

Haha!

Next time, you might be on a zip line.

 

Nature at its best

I copied some pictures of Nate when they were in Baguio over the weekend.  Too bad we didn’t see each other at the parking lot of Shell Select last Sunday. I met Nissa though, she came for a hug and a kiss.

Nate’s signature pose.

“Mommy, it’s cold outside”. I love this one, a serene shot of our big boy.

Happy together 🙂

That somehow naughty smile…..

What a lovely scenery.

Nissa has thousands of photos of Nate in her camera phone – different places, so many poses.
