After I gave birth

Giving birth is never easy, especially when you realized the after-effects of it. I am not saying that I didn't enjoy it because I truly cherished the day that I gave birth to my angel. But giving birth changes everything in life: physically, mentally, emotionally, spiritually, and just everything.

One physical problem that I had after giving birth is gaining too much weight. Before I got pregnant, I weighed 94 lbs. Of course, I gained weight while I am still pregnant, but I was thinking that my weight will go back after I gave birth. I was wrong because I weighed more than how I weigh when I was pregnant.

Now I am trying to lose weight because I am always more comfortable with the body I have before. While trying to work out on it, I am also searching for something that would help me lose weight faster. Then I found Phentermine. They said that it is proven safe by the FDA as an appetite suppresant.

I haven't tried it yet but I am looking at it. Hopefully, it can help me a lot to have the weight I had before.

Updating this blog

I feel so bad for not updating this blog as much as I wanted too. As you all know this blog is all about my son and me as his mother. I would like to fill this up with lots of pictures and videos of each captured moment of my son. But it is hard for me to do that right now due to some problem that I am having with the computer that I am using. Each time I tried to upload photos or videos, it keeps giving me an error message about computer memory. The only reason that I can think of about that problem is my computer doesn't have enough memory or something like that but unfortunately, I don't have any idea how to fix it.

My Active and Independent Son

One of the things that I am proud about my son is that he is always active and healthy. In fact, since we came here in Texas from the Philippines, he never got sick yet with the weather that keeps changing, but I got sick about twice already.

Another thing is he is very independent. Yes, he would ask for me once in a while, but compare to other kids I've encountered, my son can entertain himself without needing someone to be with him. Though sometimes, he would try to do some things that he is not supposed to do so I still require an adult supervision, but as long as you are in the same room with him, he is gonna be fine playing all by himself.

Anyway, the following video is taken while we were at the playground and it showed how active and independent he is.

He is never be afraid of anything

Almost every week, during my husband's off, we would go to a playground so that we can all go out and bond together. Of course, we know that our son enjoys it so much and though he already had a full exercise by just running around the house, he can have more exercise in the playground.

One thing I noticed about my son is he is not afraid of anything. Just like what he's doing in the following video.

Honestly, while looking at him doing it, I was more afraid than him. While I was taking the video, I am giving my husband a look to make sure that nothing harm will happen to our son. But Abi was fine and even after that video, he kept coming back to that same stair and tried to climb without any hesitation.

Me and My Mom's Similarities (From

I took a test on about if me and my Mom are the same. I just answered some questions truthfully and the following is the result.

You Are Somewhat Like Your Mom

Believe it or not, you and your mom are pretty darn similar.

It may not seem like it at times, but you and your mom have a lot of common ground.

You and your mom do understand each other well. You may just need to work on communication.

Over time, you'll probably get closer ... especially if you emphasize the things you like about each other.

The result is somewhat true. But I can't really tell if it is true, but all I know is that I am proud of my Mom and she will always be the best Mom for me. Well, I maybe more like her but she did some things that I think which is not good as a mother, spoiling your child, which I am trying my best to avoid doing so. I don't know yet if I am doing what I wanted and what is right though.

Visit to his cousin, Kevin Jr.

We visited Kevin, Jr., son of my husband's brother, Kevin today. It was his birthday last Wednesday, Nov. 12, and today is a small get together for Kevin's family which is us.

Abi had so much fun and got very excited with all the toys of his cousins. New toys are really interesting for kids, even if it is just new on their eyes.

Well, there are a total of 4 kids in their, my son, Kevin Jr., Keegan, and CJ, Shonda's nephew. I stayed with them in the playroom which made me babysit all the 4 of them. It was so overwhelming and exhausting because they all need attention. I even said to myself that there is no way that I will have 4 kids.

Anyway, I was surprise coz being with other kids, which I don't normally do coz I am just with Abi alone most of the time, made me realize that Abi is far better than the other kids. I am not saying this in a bias way, but I am really observant about other kids' behavior.

I was playing with the other kids' earlier coz they wanted my attention, like play with them with this and that, but my son, he was just very contented playing all by himself. He was able to entertain himself coz he knew that my hands are full. I felt bad about it coz I know I should be playing with him instead of the other kids. But he's handling himself pretty well which made me a very proud Mom.

Abi's Spoon Trick

My son has a cool spoon trick that I just discovered early today. Yes, that is what you seeing right now in the picture. He can have the spoon hanging on his nose.

I know this trick is kinda old and lots of people may know how to do it. But I guess they lick the spoon first so that it would stick on their nose. But with my son, I just put the spoon on top of his nose and it would just hang there. Kinda cool for me. What do you think?

Maybe my son would want to work on the circus someday coz he knows some trick like this one. Oh well, just a part time though. lol
