Congratulations Nate!

Nissa sent me this photo yesterday. It’s Nate’s latest achievements in Grade 1. By August 24 if schools push through, he’ll be in Grade 2.

And she accompanied it with these inspiring words.

Nate, ever since you started schooling, you’ve never failed to make us proud of your scholastic achievements. You growing up to be a sweet, loving, brave and generous kid means everything. Your medals and awards are just icing on the cake. We hope you know how very happy you make us. We love you, dear Nate. Congratulations on a job well done!

1st grade done, next.

Nonna is so proud of you!

 

Only In Pictures

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.

Seven Going Twenty

DREAMS AND ESCAPES

Here’s another conversation between Nissa and Nate. Lucky mom. It’s typical of Nate to do this. When they’re around, he gives me a massage too.  This isn’t the first time he said that he will stay single and take care of Nissa.   Huh?  Nice words coming from a seven-year old.

Last night, Nate gave me a massage. Then he tucked me into bed. I asked him why he was so sweet. He answered, “You know I’ll do anything to make you happy Mom. I know you’re tired. I’ve been thinking about how hard you work and take care of me and Dad. It’s time for me to give back. Babawi naman ako.”

I was so touched that tears started falling. He wiped my tears away and said, “Don’t cry Mommy. Just relax. I don’t want you to feel uncomfortable. No need to rub my back na to make me sleep…

Happy Valentine’s Day Mom!

Haha, I smiled when I saw this. Nate’s simple gift to Nissa on Valentine’s Day. Look at the crude style those paper hearts were made….beautiful.  It’s a note (again) saying she is an excellent cook and a rose. Sweet. Love it. This is not the first time he wrote to  Nissa. When we were at the hospital a few months ago, he also wrote the same thing that Nissa is #1 when it comes to cooking.

See you in a while Nate.

DREAMS AND ESCAPES

WITHOUT prompting, ask your child these questions and write EXACTLY what they say about you:

What is something mommy says a lot?
Nate: I love you, Nate

•What makes mommy happy?
Nate: me

•What makes mommy sad?
Nate: When I’m makulit

•What’s mommy’s favorite thing to do?
Nate: Spend time with me

•What is mommy’s favourite food?
Nate: Veggies

•What is mommy’s favorite drink?
Nate: Beer

•If mommy could go anywhere, where would she go?
Nate: to the mall to go shopping

•How does mommy annoy you?
Nate: When you’re mad at me

•What is mommy’s favorite tv show?
Nate: Goblin

•What is mommy’s job?
Nate:banking

•What is mommy’s favorite color?
Nate: Purple!

•How much do you love mommy?
Nate: So much!

Nissa doesn’t know where he got the beer because she doesn’t drink beer, or maybe he sees her occasionally with one.

It’s Finally Fixed

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.

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…

Something Inspiring

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.
