On Having Two

It's crazy!

I guess it doesn't help that I'm nursing my CS wound, stabilizing my milk supply, reviewing Mia for her exams this quarter and no yayas for both kids(Well, Mia's yaya is leaving tomorrow and the replacement is still arriving next week!). I have been having a cumulative 4-5 hours of sleep every night and this is for a person who loves sleep and sleeps for at least 8 hours a night.

I'm so proud though that after day 1 at home, I have been completely independent from my mom for the graveyard shift. I don't need to 'phone a friend'. Hehe...

What I can be grateful for is that Mia simply adores her baby sister. She feels like she's this big person(as in literally) who can carry the baby around. She loves bottle feeding her (with breastmilk not formula) and talking to her. Karl also helped a lot especially during his paternity leave. Now, I already gave him my blessing not to help during the late nights since he has work and I'm on leave.

I am totally looking forward to this long weekend. Hopefully more hands on deck, since Karl is on holiday does that mean he can help? We haven't discussed it yet:P. Have a nice long weekend everyone. Enjoy!

Say Hi!

And she's out!

I was so scared of the operation since I was asleep the whole time when Mia came out. It turned out okay, but I'll leave the increase in population to everyone else after this one.

Presenting Emilia Rosario. 7.18 pounds! When Mia saw me after, she was like, "Wow mom! You're sexy again!" That is why we're on the same team:). Here we go again...

4 days to go!

And I'm reminiscing how time flew so fast.  Mia is so big now!  Since this baby in my tummy would be our last, can everything be in slow-mo, please?  Here's a video of Mia when she was 2 years old.  I wish we took more videos or maybe we should have just documented her life.


Since my leave, I have been cleaning the house. It's amazing how fast things just pile up without you knowing it. I cleaned both my room at my mom's and our home. It felt like I didn't even make a dent. I have a couple more days left, are we ready? I don't think so. My friend told me I was nesting.

No Fail Grilled Cheese Sandwich

The Breakfast of Champions! Haha, what a caption...
I don't cook.  Cooking and I were never friends.  I think it started in high school when we had cooking class.  We were cooking a very simple recipe of cream of corn soup.  Our recipe book had the wrong measurement and since a particular student wasn't listening to her teacher,  she did not hear her teacher say that the 2 tablespoons of salt had to be corrected to 2 teaspoons.  That was the saltiest cream of corn soup in the world and I even tasted it in front of my teacher, with a straight face, I said, "Ok lang naman ah...."   Right.

I Shall Return

Anawangin, summer of 2010

Please skip this post if you're sick of me talking about my pregnancy, weight gain and stretchmarks.  I've been having word vomit.  I have less than 2 weeks left so hopefully you can still bear with me.  As I'm typing this, I have already gained more than 40 lbs.  I was supposed to talk about this before I hit the more than 40 lbs. mark, but who would have thought I would go over?  I have started watching what I eat, and I mean be more choosy on what goes in my mouth, but so far, even when I sneeze I gain weight.

37 weeks!

So we've finally made it to the finish line, or at least I can pop anytime without worrying that the baby is premature. I'm excited but I know I'm going to have a breakdown when I actually check in the hospital. I don't even want to think of the needles, my organs being reorganized and all those other things.
