Deye-ctionary Updates

I wonder how Dunstan would interpret my daughter’s baby talks. In the meantime, here are the “latest” words that we’ve been hearing for the past days…

Scene No. 1
I was teasing her when I sat on her toy car last Friday. She held my hand and said “up, up”. Aba! Bossy na mag-utos! At inulit pa!

Scene No. 2
So happy that she could say “nayshhh” now instead of “nay”, at least medyo may tunog “s” na hehe! Whenever she sees me wearing accessories in the morning, she would touch it and say “nayshhh”.

Scene No. 3
Last night, after feeding her a whole boiled egg, she asked for “didi”. She finished it fast. Sat down. And said “ishhhh”. At yun ay habang winawagayway ang feeding bottle nya! Hahaha!

I hope to upload more of her recorded “baby talks” tomorrow.

Mother’s Instinct?

Since we just moved in to a new place, we had to find a new babysitter for my little one. But it was the first time that I rejected one. Mother’s instinct siguro! I just don’t feel that Deye will be in good hands plus the fact that she was demanding for a higher rate + the transportation. So I told my husband if we are gonna pay her demand, better stick with the present one. At least she can handle Deye. And she helps me with the house chores.

Kaya ngayon, palagay na naman ang loob ko coz Deye is in good hands.

All About Friday

Friday is supposed to be our family day, our “only” family day. But it wasn’t. Hmp! Cancelled day off si hubby! Good thing Deye was around to make me laugh hehehehe!

She actually woke me up at around 8:30 a.m. by picking my nose. Kulit talaga! Hubby was already out to do some errands. Kasi naman si Mama tulog pa, ang anak gising na hahaha! San ka nakakita nun? :p Kaya ayun, I had no choice but to get up and start with my Friday routine. After my rituals, kay Deye naman…

I asked her “what do you want to eat?” Mama, nana! Huwaaaaaat? Anong Mama, nana? Eto na naman kami sa guessing game ng mga sinasabi nya hehehe! Then I followed her. She stopped by our dining table. Ayun naman pala! May “nana” pala sa table hahaha! Korek! Banana. She wanted to eat a banana. Ayun, nakipagbuno ako sa pag-mash ng banana, ang dulas kasi, tumatalon hehe!

Then gave her a bath. Eto na naman kami sa “at” na tubig hehehe! Si Mama kasi di chinecheck kung “at” ang water! Tuloy lagi akong napapagalitan ng boss Deye ko. Anyway, every Friday is special. I always dress her up. Literally, she wears cutie dresses. Put her in bed. Dressed her up kasama na dun ang rituals with Johnson’s baby cologne and powder, pati na ang lotion. Our bed is opposite our dresser. We positioned ’em that way kasi nga she loves to look at the mirror. She got up, faced the mirror and said “Nice”! Uy! Hindi na “nay”, she said it “nice” pero medyo sablay pa din yung “S” nya hehehe! Tapos I let her wandered around the house. While she was out the bedroom, I decided to take some photos as my mother has been chasing me for that, they wanted to see our new flat. As I was focusing this corner (TV and her toy basket), no one was there! Click!!! And you know how digicam works, delayed lagi! Ayan ang kinalabasan! Biglang may bubwit na sumingit hahaha! And look how she smiled, nakakaloko talaga!

Dada came home. I was folding the washed/dried up clothes and washing some more at the same time. And Deye was playing with the hangers all around the bedroom. Hay talaga naman! Here comes another Deye. Ay! Ang mag-ama talaga pasaway! They would drag my dressing table’s chair na parang bang nakasakay sila sa kabayo hehehe! I told my husband, siya ang cook. I still have to clean the bathroom. So he did.

Lunchtime came. I was able to put “makulit” to her afternoon nap. Then only we can have our lunch peacefully hehehe!

She woke up around 5pm. I made avocado shake. We had it together. While Dada was getting ready for work, I decided to take her out. Poor girl, she was home again the whole day! I told my hubby to bring the cam along with him when he comes out. And look what I was doing as he captured that moment bwehehehehe! It was me who was playing and not Deye hahaha! She actually told me “up”. This girl really surprises me with her new words. Okay, it’s hers, not mine. So I got up. Mang-agaw ba kasi ng laruan ng bata hahaha!

And she crossed over (safe naman kasi walang mga sasakyang nagdadaan) the lane, and seated by the main door of our building na akala mo eh nag-eemote.

After a while, I decided to finally get in the building, ang init kasi sa labas, humid na naman. During Friday evenings kasi, we usually go and dine out somewhere. Since Dada’s off was cancelled, we had to stay home. ‘Yoko namang umalis ng kami lang, hirap magbitbit ng makulit mag-isa. So, ayun, balik bahay. As usual, nood ng walang kamatayang kiddie songs nya. Pag may anak ka pala talaga, dun ka mamumulat sa mga iba-ibang kiddie songs. Honestly, I didn’t even know the full lyrics of Baba Black Sheep until I watched/heard it over and over again with Deye hahaha! ‘Kahiya ako no?

That’s how my Friday went. Somehow, advantage din yung di kami lumabas at naiwang dalawa sa bahay. At least may “bonding” moments na naman kami. After watching, I played “dressing up” with her, binihisan namin yung baby doll nya ng mga damit nyang nakaliitan na, and she enjoyed it! At nakatulugan na lang naming nagdadaldalan at naghaharutan sa kama. It was fun kahit na di ko siya naiintindihan.

That’s all about my Friday! *wink*

DIY Arts & Crafts For Kids

We (Me and my husband) were discussing last night on how fast Deye catches up the things that she sees/hears. She seems to be a fast learner. My husband said that I should read her a story before going to bed.

I decided to search online this morning. I’m sure there are free templates around the net. And look what I’ve found! DLTK’s Educational Activities. Everything is DIY arts and crafts, the best part is…… it’s absolutely free and printable with instructions. Not only that, I also found Mrs. Jones helpful links.

I’ve printed 4 mini books already hehehe!

So, I’m sharing these freebies to all the mommy bloggers out there! Enjoy!
