Truly, it was another day worth remembering. When Nate is around, the house is alive too.  I took some shots of Nate on my tab while he was opening his gifts from and when we tried to assemble those tiny plastic toys to form an Apache Helicopter and a toy truck. Once he saw the boxes, he shouted, “amazing Nonna, I love these”. You’re welcome baby. Nice to know you like them. Since I just used my tab, the photos are not that clear.

I haven’t bought a new camera yet, I am so lazy to go out and buy one. Besides, my cash here would probably not enough for a good camera yet. I don’t want to use my credit card when it comes to items that I want but don’t have the immediate need  of it.

 

He was just excited to see his gifts from Nonna.

 

What are they Nate?

 

Haha, and your mom is so good at it. Nonna doesn’t know how to follow instructions.

 

Let’s start with the Apache helicopter next, as if I could…haha 🙂

He brought along some of his Lego toys. The toy trucks, airplanes and dinosaurs were already assembled earlier.

Lovely!

 

Dinosaurs, airplanes, trucks and what have you.

 

Hmm….I am truly impressed with your collection.

Does he like the book?  He does.  He scanned the pages and took note of the illustrations in every page. Then he said, “I like to read Stuart Little”.  His kuya Kevin gave him a book too for his birthday while my friend Lilet gave him a set of slim volumes of fairy tales. They were written in bold letters so I am sure he could read them now.

Before they went home, we spent about an hour at the garden shooting targets from his toy gun.

Another Saturday of precious bonding.

Again, for the nth time, I am proud of this little boy.  They were just given their report cards for the second grading and he got the highest score just like the first grading period.

When a family member is recognized for his achievements, you feel like you are also a winner and you feel that pride of place for being his Nonna.

Ang batang maasahan (a kid you could rely on), a joyful thanksgiver and a busy bee. I could understand the busy bee. He is just so active sometimes he volunteers with works that he can handle. At his young age, he is so responsible.

Proud Nonna here. See you tomorrow baby.

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.

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.

When he turned two, he cuddled a Mickey Mouse stuffed toy bigger than he was.  By the time he was three, he was so amazed with Spiderman.

 

Now that he is five, he loves everything about Spiderman.   It is the first day of school today. He is now in Kindergarten.  All of his stuff from his bag to lunch box to  his jacket are all Spidey.

Way to go Nate. Make it good okay?  I know you are more inspired to go to school.

As I want to retain the pictures in hi-resolution format, I am posting them  here. Nate just received three medals this school year.

So proud of you baby. He got three medals – With High Honors (with a 95-97 average), Best English Speaker and Best in Singing. I have yet to hear him sing. When he was about three, he would invent words then he will sing. I miss those days.

It’s one of those days again. I am just happy and feel  so proud that our little Nate has maintained his grades this third grading period.

Nissa just forwarded to me photos of his report card and awards.  He needs though to exercise self-control. He is just so active and talkative in class.  He always initiates conversations Even when we are at the mall, he says hi to people he meets in the stores.

I read somewhere in a research that a child’s intelligence takes after the mom. Is this true? Nissa was a consistent honors student  from kindergarten to college. she graduated Magna Cum Laude.
