Lia's First Day of Real School

June 18 was a milestone for our little Lia --- it was her first day of ‘real school’!šŸ˜ Waaaah, how time flies! Now, she already wears a uniform and her classes are daily. Truly, a legit schoolgirl our daughter already is. šŸ’–

Glucose Test Round 2

Three and a half years ago, I wrote about my "glucose challenge" when I was pregnant with Lia.  And now that I'm preggers with Dumpling, I just went thru another glucose test!  It happened last Saturday, 16th of June.

The process this time wasn't exactly the same as my first, though I still had to fast for 8-10 hours prior to the blood extraction.  When I got to the lab at Asian Hospital, I was given this super cold glucose drink that I had to drink within 5 minutes while the nurse was watching. They say others can't stand how sweet this tastes, but to me, it was easy-peasy!šŸ‘Œ I think I finished it in less than a minute!  Hehe.  It just tasted like sweet samalamig without the gulaman, yuuum! 

Why Lia Loves Her Daddy šŸ’–

Dear Daddy,

Why do I love thee? šŸ’–

I love you because you play with me like it's the most enjoyable thing in the world.  Even if you're busy or tired or sleepy, you make time for me because you know I'd be happy.

Pietro or Patria? šŸ‘¶

Dumpling and I are 20 weeks and 4 days along today, and if I go get an ultrasound scan now, we can already find out his/her gender! Waaaah, we're super excited to know already! Everyone guesses/wishes that it's a boy this time, since our firstborn Lia is a girl.  Sabi nila, para quota na.  With Lia before, I knew in my heart I wanted a girl.  But this time, I honestly don't have a secret wish.  As long as s/he is healthy and normal and 'happycute'  like Lia, then it's perfect.šŸ’“

Dumpling's Da Moves šŸ˜„

I can already feel Dumpling's da moves, yipeee! I could have felt it earlier than this week, but I wasn't sure because the flutters felt so small and were very short.  This week, however, our tiny baby with the size of an heirloom tomato was perhaps a little more active with continuous dives and wiggles, and I knew it.  It's him (or her). šŸ‘¶

Thank you for your every movement, my love, that assures me you're happy and healthy inside mommy's tummy.  I can't wait to see you again on ultrasound, and by then we'll already know if you're a boy or a girl.  Either is perfect! Daddy and I and ate Lia love you! šŸ’–
