Lights - Camera - Action!

Most mothers like me wish that every milestone her child takes is being noted. Some would keep a journal of candid photos and videos with detailed information or make a scrapbook just to document any significant development of their child... any little progress is a huge achievement.

I have my two other children whom I love so dearly but I was not able to maintain a diary of events in their lives. I guess, the advancement of technology makes it easier for me to keep track of my baby's little milestones.

In this video, I am talking to my baby Kiko and he somehow exchanged words in his own language. He's like explaining something to me. His eye movements seem to speak as well. He's almost four months old here.

At five months, he can laugh and giggle ... even make some noises.

 She was then online and I received an immediate confirmation and that's it. We started to chat and we both felt an overwhelming gladness that after more than a decade, we were able to get in touch. We could hardly believe that we're…

Mom 24/7

Being a new mother again after almost 10 years is an experience of mixed emotions. I thought I was only gifted to raise two undeniably good kids but to my surprise, another boy came out of my tummy through a third c-section operation. Now, I found myself with a bib on my right hand and a feeding bottle on my left. I realized that I am no longer a working mother but a "mom 24/7". It's not an easy job. It's challenging, very demanding and requires full attention, much effort and most of all... time consuming. I am not a first-time mom but it's my first time to be a full time mom.

Yes, I am organized and detail-oriented. Maybe those are good traits I got from my mother but doing domestic chores simultaneously is somehow difficult and getting things done faster is likewise. Each passing day is a one-woman-show except for weekends and during my hubby's day off.

Our house as my workplace now is much simpler to manage than to supervise a group of people wit…
