Coron, Palawan 2015
Jul 5th, 2015 by niceyfemme

It all started with a Marketmanila blog post. I really look up to the man and one day he posted a picture of himself a la James Bond in a beach with the clearest waters and fine white sand. I told myself, “I’m going to that place too.” And made a mental note of the place’s name, CORON, PALAWAN.

I love travelling but of course in real life it’s not very easy to do. I mean it’s not easy to just pack up and leave. First, it’s not cheap even if you choose the most basic options if there’s a number of you in the group and with the hectic-ness of the world today who can go? We did. 🙂

J16

It didn’t hurt that I found some nicely priced airline tickets.

J25

Flight was delayed for a few hours but that didn’t reduce our excitement!

busuanga

Touch down in Busuanga Airport! We arrived at 5pm and started our tour the next day.

J22

The tourists! 🙂

J23

The knowledgeable tour guide Anthony if I still remember his name right.

J09

My sleepy daughter.

J15

If these photos didn’t make you want to go there then I don’t know what will. 🙂

J12

Just after I booked the tickets I immediately ordered long sleeved rash guard for the family especially for Joleigh, and aqua shoes.

J17

There’s just one thing I didn’t like very much, it’s the sun that’s shining like it’s really mad at us! It really hurt our skin and roasted it in minutes.

J18

Scorching hot!

J02

So we “swam” on the side of the boat. We don’t know how to swim and my Mom and Aunt are really scared about drowning and getting washed away from the shore. They’re always paranoid haha.

J03

Floating. Big accomplishment for them.

J01

She loves the water. Or she just doesn’t know the concept of danger yet.

J24

Joleigh with Lola Precy or Lola P.

She’s already sleepy on the way to the next destination hence the face. To be honest I don’t remember which island is which.

J13

I loved snorkeling! But I didn’t like that it’s rented. (I bought my own now.)

Sarap!

I brought a waterproof camera.

Blue green clear waters. This is the clearest waters I have seen. On the way to the next destination.

Set up for lunch on the island.

Breathtaking!

J19

All the time that I was looking at the clear waters I was thinking about the freshest fish and other seafood we could eat!

J06

Took a lot of prodding to get her to get to the water. Even with the life vest my mother still thinks she’ll drown. Can’t blame her though, I still get scared myself.

J08

I love this place!

Exhausted!

J07

Tried fishing with my mini fishing rod and reel. My first ever catch!

J20

We were too tired and hungry. Here we were waiting for our food.

Tired and hungry but happy!

P.S. We’re going back to Coron in a few months!

Joleigh @ Manila Ocean Park 2015

Joleigh

She’s now 2 and a half. How fast time flies! I can easily talk to her now and how blessed I am that she’s simply a smart kid as well as affectionate so I find it hard to say no to her requests like going to see the fishies at Manila Ocean Park. Every time we passed Luneta area whenever we go to Quezon City she would asks me to got there and one time I had no choice but make a promise and boy does she remembers my promises. She won’t stop until I make true to that promise!

My Little Sunshine
Apr 13th, 2014 by niceyfemme

I’ve always wanted a baby girl and man how she gives me my daily sunshine! My Joleigh is so cute and smart plus so funny I have no idea where she took that from haha.

My Joleigh!

Here she is wearing my shades, so big for her tiny face, after playing with her rice powder. She likes it when I take her picture while she’s posing too.

Happy Birthday Joleigh!
Mar 30th, 2014 by niceyfemme

Late post. But better than never posting this at all. 🙂

Time definitely flew way too fast! I now have a one year old! I distinctly remember when I was still writing posts about my desire to have a baby and secretly wishing for a girl, even though I kept telling myself that if I have a boy I’d be equally happy. No, God has been so nice to me, granting again my prayers to a T.

It has been a shame that I have not given this blog as much time as I used to like before I got pregnant.  And I could have used this blog to document my baby’s every day and every milestone but no I got so overwhelmed by pregnancy and motherhood and by my laziness. I always have chosen sleep over everything else. Man this new permanent job has made me soooo tired! And sooooooo happy!

Anak thank you for giving me the best year of my life . I’ve never felt so happy seeing someone smile, seeing someone take her first steps and even when I get sneezed at. I can’t wait for the coming days and years that I get to take care of you and love you. It has been a great privilege having you as my daughter and I am so proud and I fell so tall whenever you call me Mama.

Papa and I, together with Mommy and Daddy will do our very best to give you a muchbetter life than we had. All the opportunities in the world as well.  But most importantly I’d try my best to make you feel loved, that you always have me. That I support you no mztter what and with Mama you’ll never be judged. I love you Joleigh. I truly thank God everyday for giving me you?

PS. Thank you for loving Mama’s dede as much as you do. 🙂 I love it that you love them that much.

My Life As A New Mom
Nov 20th, 2012 by niceyfemme

I don’t know where to begin. The moment I gave birth my life has changed forever. This little baby daughter took over control of my life and everyone in my family. She sleeps whenever she wants and we also only get to sleep when she is haha.. So far it has been wonderful anf very challenging to me physically and emotionally. I want to give her the best I can so I decided on breastfeeding years before I got pregnant then breastfeeding kicked my butt I flew to the wall and got knocked out crying.It has been hard and yet I still continue with all these things with a happy heart. Motherhood has been a blessing and a dream come true for me. I always prayed to be a mother and have a baby and He finally answered what my heart desires.I now have a beautiful and somewhat funny daughter who always makes me laugh. She’s the apple of my family’s eyes. Yes we are exhausted but we’re sooo happy!

My Daughter Joleigh
Oct 17th, 2012 by niceyfemme

World, meet my daughter, Joleigh. I am now a certified mother.

My husband with my daughter a few minutes after birth. 🙂 It was an easy delivery I can say. Well easier than I expected because I expected it to be really painful and a difficult process. It was hard and difficult but not the worst ever.

My life is more complete now. I’m just so happy. I’m still adjusting to life being a mother and yes it can get overwhelming at times but I wouldn’t have it any other way.  Thank you my dear Lord for always making my dreams come true. Every thing in my life is because of You. Thank you.

My baby’s coming out VERY soon
Sep 21st, 2012 by niceyfemme

My I can’t wait. I have been dreaming about having a baby the last fifteen years and it’s finally coming true anytime now.It is overwhelming me to be honest specially since I thought it isn’t even possible for me as I have PCOS. Now I am just waiting for labor to begin. I can’t say I am excited for the labor itself since everybody knows it’s going to be painful but I am excited to the fact that I will soon going to meet and hold my baby in my arms. Just thinking about it makes me cry.

Now I can’t say that I am scared or not scared of labor. I guess my attitude about it is that I have no choice but to go through it anyway so why fret over it? And I have already discussed the use of epidural with my OB and we agreed that by 3-4 cms and when I’m already in active labor then they will allow me to have the epidural. I am just concerned about the pain leading to that 3-4 cms. I might need a dragonfly round silk zafu to use as I meditate through pain. Of course I am going to need all the help I could get since my pain threshold is at ZERO. And did I already mentioned here that I’m not fond of needles as well? This is how much I want to have a baby that I would go through something as scary as this to have one.

Can’t wait to meet you little Joleighta! ♥♥♥

My baby’s things: Cloth Diapers
Aug 14th, 2012 by niceyfemme

Alright I have to “hide” my mess that’s why….

Even before I finally got pregnant I already have some blogs I follow and one of them is a mommy blog. One time she mentioned about how she’s then using some cloth diapers and how her son likes it. I found it cute but I didn’t really pay much attention then as I didn’t see why it would be important to me. That is until I got pregnant and we started to buy stuff for the arrival of our princess.

Oh and it’s a GIRL!
Jul 26th, 2012 by niceyfemme

Yes. The God Almighty has answered so many of my prayers since last year. I prayed for a kind hearted man to marry and I did marry one. I couldn’t be happier with our marriage now. Then I prayed for a baby, any gender will do but I prefer to have a girl first. I have always imagined how I would dress her up and how she’ll look in her papa’s arms. Getting pregnant wasn’t easy for me as I have PCOS so I wasn’t even sure if pregnancy wass even possible. I know it is to some women with PCOS but not to all. So to say that I was happy when I saw those two lines would be an understatement. Then he blessed us with a girl too! Wow.

Let me introduce you guys to my baby girl. This is taken at my ultrasound when I was in my 5th month so she’s definitely bigger now. We’ll be able to meet her in more or less two months. I can’t wait.

Thank you my Lord for the life that I have. I will never get tired of thanking you all my life.

I haven’t met you but I already love you
Jul 25th, 2012 by niceyfemme

Is what I tell the baby inside my tummy. It’s such an overwhelming feeling in many dimensions if that is the word. Every time she moves, it’s like she’s caressing my heart. I feel closer and closer to her. From the moment I learned that I am pregnant I already felt protective over her and even more now.

My favorite past time is watching my tummy move. Haha I can’t describe how she does it. But my tummy starts round in shape then the moment she moves my tummy becomes misshapen… Sometimes it kind of makes me nervous as well. Well this is the first time that something/ someone is moving inside my body and I have no control over her at all. At the same time it is a feeling of relief as her movements assures me that she’s fine and healthy and she’s happy. My OBG said that it’s actually good when she moves a lot it means she’s happy inside my tummy.

Now I’m a week shy of my 8th month and sleeping has become a struggle. I have to pee way too many times at night. Plus her movements wake me up as well. It’s like she’s massaging my insides haha. I love you baby… We can’t wait to meet you. Your papa, mama, daddy and mommy are all very excited to hold you in our arms. I can’t wait to start our lives with you in it.
