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.

Named After Jordan Taylor Hanson
Nov 21st, 2012 by niceyfemme

Yeah I gave my baby daughter Taylor Hanson’s first name Jordan. Why? Because I believe that Taylor’s a really gifted musician, a music genius actually and I want my daughter to get that from him. He’s the one person who influenced me to appreciate music of all kinds by listening to their music. He and his brothers can make rotten leaves sound like fibracell reeds of the best quality!

It just sucks that most people here in the Philippines are not aware that Jordan is a unisex name and many girls/ladies have Jordan as their name. And by the way, no one can question me why I gave my daughter a guy’s name grrrrr if that’s what you believe it’s alright just keep it to yourself and don’t bother me with your nonsense and ignorance. 🙂

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: Pink Play Pen
Aug 12th, 2012 by niceyfemme

Yes it’s pretty in pink. 😉

So this our daughter’s play pen. This has a mosquito net, and changing table (?) that you can attach on top of it. Bee and I both decided on this one as it’s really pretty and perfect for a baby girl. Oh it’s actually Mommy who wants us to get a play pen instead of a crib/cot. I originally wanted a steel one which I really fell for but Mommy said it might not be wise to have since babies will try to stand up on their own while they don’t have steady balance so most likely she’ll fall into one of those railings and she’ll have a bump or worse she might have a bloody mouth, literally.

Again, I am so happy with how well my husband has been so preoccupied with all things for our baby. See he even assembled this already. Then he will have to pack this again to bring here in the Philippines. It’s like looking at his fantasy baseball trophies when he just bought another baby gear. Then he will find something he likes better and will show it to me and he would want to buy that again haha. He’s so cute. I love this phase of my life, I am always happy. Hmmmn say 90% of the time? Thank you very much my dear Lord. All of these is because of You.

My baby’s things: Car Seat
Aug 10th, 2012 by niceyfemme

Well we still have to wait for a month before she is ready to meet us all but we have already bought her her things. It’s fun buying her clothes. Shopping for her clothes was delegated by myself to myself and Mommy while buying her playpen, stroller and car seat is my husband’s responsibility. It’s so cute how Bee (my husband) would do his research first and changes his mind a lot of times before buying something. Of course I need to approve the appearance first haha, the technical part of it is his job, but really we have to both agree on appearance. We want what is best for our princess. 🙂

Of course price is a big consideration for us so we decided to buy a car seat she could use until she’s about 3 to 4 years old.  For some reason my husband wants orange for our baby haha.. When I was in first grade and you asked me what my favorite color was, I’d say orange so I have no objection about this.

I love all these new stuff we’re having for the baby but for myself I would really appreciate some really good quality utility knives. One’s home should have a good set. For now I’m so happy with all our purchases even though all the spending has reminded me just how pricey it is to have a child but I wouldn’t have it any other way. I waited for our baby girl for a decade and a half so you won’t hear me complaining!

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.

Since you requested for this…
Jul 14th, 2012 by niceyfemme

Then your wish is granted! Well in a few months really but I am already baking my gift in my tummy oven for a few months now…

Remember Daddy you are the one who kept on bugging me since Bee and I got married to when we will give you a grandchild? You really pressured me big time… So the moment I learned that I am indeed pregnant aside from the overwhelming happiness and shock I felt, I felt the best feeling of relief! That finally I’ll be a mama now and you’ll be a grandpa soon… I don’t want my baby to call you grandpa by the way… I want the baby to call you Daddy as well…

I really thought long and hard about what to give the soon to be grandpa gift ideas for your birthday.. Then I realized I already have THE gift. I can’t believe how excited you are about my baby even more excited than I am and Bee and Mommy… That makes you an awesome Daddy to me and the best grandpa to the bun I am still baking… We love you! ♥

Is how it feels like for me when my baby kicks. Sometimes the baby’s movements will catch me off guard but it’s a welcome surprise. I love that feeling. Now it’s like I have a more concrete evidence that my baby is there, moving. Before I only get to see the baby move and feel assured that the baby’s ok during ultrasound. So far I had two. First and second times was to find the heartbeat. Ooh that tormented me but that’s over now and I’m happy. My baby’s so active even at this very young age.

In 3 weeks time, my husband and I will have another ultrasound, that one’s to finally know the gender of the baby. I can’t wait to know! Well I guess there’s no surprise there that I’m so eager since patience is not one of my strengths. 🙂 So it’s a good thing we can finally know soon. To have to wait almost 5 more months to know my baby’s gender would be very hard on me. Hmmmn I really can’t wait to know. A boy or a girl? I need to know! 🙂
