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.

He said “pagod na ako”  meaning he is already tired so he got a pillow and watched television instead. He knows what channel Nickelodeon is.   Took this series of shot on my tab while he was serious about watching and making faces later.

The garden is precious to Nate. He always visits it every time they are here. He loves picking calamansi. 

 

Why are you frowning? Alanganing ngiti.

 

He has lots of toy trucks but he loves this old collection of Josef. He had it safe in his pocket when they went home.

Haha!

Precious moments with Nate. Precious time spent playing and visiting the garden.

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.

Can’t pass this up without greeting you on your 5th birthday.

HAPPY, HAPPY BIRTHDAY NATE! Can’t believe it, you’re now five years old. I remember the early days, us making memories. I remember the times you were just learning to walk and to talk legibly. I remember your stories that always start with “One day…..” I remember those moments we laughed together while playing with your toys here.

Turning five

May you grow to be strong, smart, healthy and loving and may you continue to possess that innocence so endearing to see in a lovable child that you are. And I wish you all the precious things that a loving Nonna could wish for.

You are God’s wonderful blessing to us. Happy birthday. Love you so much.

They came over  last Saturday for us to celebrate Nissa’s birthday. I asked Nate if he wanted to take a nap.

Nate: No, Nonna I will just play.

Me: Aren’t you sleepy?

Nate: No (shaking his head).

After a while he asked: Do you have other toys for me? (He was looking at the big plastic bag where his other toys were kept).

Me: Let us just read, okay?

He got his books down from the shelf and leafed through a story book. He could not read sentences yet but I heard his voice. He was inventing a story. It was just like when he would sing and just string the lyrics on his own.

Priceless moments spent with Nate ♥

It’s been a long time since I posted here.  The recent ones are all re-blogged from my main site, Dreams And Escapes.

Nissa finally got Nate’s grades and awards for the first grading this school year.  Nonna is proud and happy Nate. You made it.

Nissa took this shot two weeks ago. It’s Nate’s short, short hair cut for the summer days. I posted it as my profile photo and it earned a lot of comments and likes.  It’s the first time since he was a year old that he has his hair trimmed this short.  Nate is our little “binata” now.

Yesterday was another milestone in Nate’s life and in ours too, his family.

It was a lovely celebration of Moving Up at the Manila Hotel, a two-hour program where they sang and danced.  They didn’t have this honors awards but Josef got two awards, Best in Reading and best In Science. So proud of you baby. I remember those days when your mom was like your age. I started her in kindergarten instead of nursery school but she got the first honors and a gold medal. Bank in high school and in college I was up the stage every recognition day and graduation. She graduated  Magna Cum Laude.  Hoping you will too when you grow up. I can’t help but post these lovely photos of yours.

how lovely getting those gold medals.

 

A close-up shot of our future pilot.

 

Ladies and gentlemen, we are now on our final approach into Manila. This is your Capt. Nate speaking….

 

Nissa, a proud mommy up the stage. Sarap ng feeling di ba?

 

meeting a real pilot in the hotel. Are you shy baby?

 

the proud parents with the new graduate.

I am so proud of you baby. So happy for you 🙂  Moving up soon to nursery school Make it good.

This is quite a late update. I have lots of photos  of my grandson courtesy of Nissa but I don’t always seem to be able to blog about them. Nate’s grades during the third grading period were a great improvement from the second one. He is surely adjusting to school life.

Yes, his grades have significantly gone up for the  third quarter term. So proud of our boy.  I remember that time during his first two weeks in class when he would not want to be left behind  by his mom or his paternal grandmother. He is enjoying his class now, his teachers and his classmates.

A few  more days to go and you’re done with nursery school Nate.
