Lia Turns Three

On this day, three years ago, I received one of the best gifts I could have ever received.  My beautiful baby girl was born, and has made me a happy mommy ever since.šŸ’– Happy 3rd birthday, our darling Lia! šŸŽ‚
My oh my, how time has flown! At three, you're now a very active little kid who loves to play and play and play while you sing and sing and sing! šŸ˜ƒ  Your talkativeness hasn't waned, you‘ve always loved talking.  Like your dad, I find you doing monologues of the shows that you watch.  You can even recite an entire episode of Daniel Tiger on your own, with the TV turned off.  Galing!šŸ‘ I’m excited to see how your language and memorization skills will further develop years as you grow older.

First Bumpie with Baby Number 2

Dumpling and I are 8 weeks + 3 days along today, and here is our very first bumpie!šŸ¤°šŸ»

He’s much bigger than his ate when Lia was at this same gestational age. Actually, with this pregnancy, I really noticed that I showed much earlier, and my tummy is much, much bigger. Google says it’s because after the first pregnancy, the skin, muscles, and surrounding ligaments have already been stretched, so they are already looser when you get pregnant the second time around. šŸ¤°šŸ»šŸ¤°šŸ»

Wooooh! I wonder how round I’ll be in my second and third trimester! šŸŽˆ

Dear Dumpling

Dear Dumpling, 

Hello baby!šŸ‘¶

I was only nearly 5 weeks along when your dad and I found out about you. My period was delayed for just 3 or 4 days, but I already took a pregnancy test because I just couldn’t contain my excitement! True enough, there you were inside mommy’s tummy. Your dad and I were over the moon!šŸ˜ We had been praying for you since September last year, but God always has His own perfect time, and that time is now, five months later. šŸ’–

Ate Lia loves you! šŸ’–

See that teeny tiny blimp? That's you, my love. šŸ’–

Yesterday, we finally saw you! I felt so giddy, like I did the first time I saw your ate Lia on ultrasound. I am happy and relieved that you’re fine inside me, with your heart beating perfectly. Your ate Lia saw your picture too, and of course she doesn’t fully understand yet. She just thinks you’re a little blimp in a sea of black whatever. Hehe. I can’t wait for you to meet each other, I just know that you will be the best of friends and playmates and frenemies someday, like many siblings are.šŸ˜Š

We love you so much, our dear dumpling. Know that mommy is taking great care of herself to make sure you are healthy and doing well. Just focus on growing and growing, okay? Don’t worry about anything else. Your daddy and I will see you again soon! šŸ’–

Love lots,
