Feels so good to be BACK!


I missed blogging a lot. yup a whole lot of it. a few months ago i was advised to go on complete bed rest. you might be asking why, my husband and I are expecting our second bundle of joy!! we’re going to have a baby!! yup. I am currently on my 3rd trimester already. I’m expecting to have our baby girl sometime in july, and we are so excited. Yes! we are having a GIRL. My pregnancy hasn’t been easy though. I was put on bed rest a lot. It’s like every other month something goes wrong and I just had to rest. I miss going to our farm, going to the mall and all the awesome stuffs I used to do. Every pregnancy is different though, but all of it is worth the wait and the sacrifices that we had to make just to keep my baby and me safe. I had to drink some meds, increase my iron intake and all those stuffs. It even got to the point where I had to consume 3-4 liters of water EVERYDAY because my amniotic fluid level was below normal. Good thing the summer heat made me comply to drinking that much amount of water.

As of now, from my latest prenatal check up and ultrasound everything is ok for now. My baby girl is in cephalic position and is growing very strong! My vitals and weight is normal and no more morning sickness every after hour for me! YAY! I just have to maintain my diet and my vitamins. I am one excited mommy! A few more weeks is all it takes. a few more sacrifices then im gonna see my baby girl soon. I know everything is going to be worth the wait.

putting up my latest picture. Proud of being pregnant again. This picture was taken durinh our recent high school reunion. Will blog more soon!!

Boracay 2012


it was late March this year when the family decided to go on a summer vacation. It’s been a while since we’ve traveled as a family. we were rooting out for Surigao since it was nearer to us, but then we saw Kris-tv on ABS-CBN. It was their summer episode in Boracay. Thats’s when we decided to go to Boracay instead! Since we were out of time already to book discounted airline tickets we decided maybe it would be much fun to go there by boat and then we could do a side trip to Iloilo and Aklan.

We booked ourselves and prepared for a 7 days escapade (that including our 1 overnight trip on the boat from Cdo- Ilo-ilo) when we arrived at Ilo-ilo, We then hired a bus to take us to Kalibo Aklan where a relative of ours would let us stay for the night before we travel to Boracay the next day. Ilo-Ilo to Kalibo is a 4 hours travel by land, Kalibo to Malay9the Pier going to Boracay) is another 1 hour and 30 mins. Then another 15 minute pumpboat ride form the pier to boracay!

the Long travel is finally over! Boracay here we come! we were 12 persons all in all including my son. so imagine the baggae we had to carry with us. but everything was all worth it. because we had so much fun!


Good Morning Boracay! Getting ready to do our water activities already.

The whole day we were just walking along the white sand beach! ahhhhh the thrill of hearing the waves and lots of people strolling along the streets of boracay!! this is truely a vacation! we stayed at station 3. we were very far from D’mall and all other shops. we had to walk a few miles, but we were thinking this is boracay! we have to walk to see everything! Good thing my son coopertae dand had so much fun running down the sandy streets.

strolling along at night in boracay, you might find some fire dancing action along the way. just put a donation on their donation box then you can readily take a picture with them.


your Boracay experience wont be the same if you wont try to party the Boracay way! I took this picture of my siblings, hubby, my sister’s boyfriend, our family friend ate ana lou and of course our father! heheheImage

And what i love about most of this trip is that my son enjoyed it a lot! Image

my sand surfing baby!!





GRANT! Yes that’s Grant. He’s real name is GRANT RONALD KADEN G. SALISE, born September 1, 2009 at 2:51pm through Cesarean Section. Yup, my very first operation. It was a last minute decision to have me in cesarean because my baby’s position was breached. I was so scared and was crying my heart out in my OB-GYNE’s clinic, which they all thought that i might get into labor any minute because i was so stressed. I wasn’t prepared emotionally and physically, I have always pictured myself to be in labor. To really know how it felt like, they said that you will really feel the essence of being a mother after you’ve gone through all the labor pains. Well in my opinion, i have felt all the pain in the world too after my operation. I didn’t know that I am not allowed to automatically stand up when i woke up the next day, well no one told me that it would hurt so much. The healing process and the recovery after the operation took its toll on me, not to mention the sleepless nights, the postpartum blues (which i thought that i was going crazy, but its normal). For me, I have fully experienced the essence of being a mother, and that;s having to go through every pain, hardships and all the patience in the world just to see your little angel and to have him wrap in your arms.

For me, the birth of my son was everything to me and my husband. My son is the first grandchild of my parents, and it has been a very long time since there was a baby in our house. I am very blessed to have my mom with me through out the event that i came home from the hospital. I got all the baby 101 tutorial straight from my mother who had all of us through normal delivery. My mom taught me everything that i needed to know in taking care of my son, how to make him burp, the right way to do breastfeeding, how to clean his belly button, how to make him shush during those nights that he wasn’t feeling all friendly with me and his daddy, ohh lucky me!

Those were the times that I thought to myself that I really owe my mom for everything,the sacrifices that she made for me when i was still days old, the sleepless nights and all the patience in the world when I just wanted to cry all day long, Those days were the confirmation that mothers will really do everything and anything for their kids.

Now my son is growing up fast. The things he does today speaks about how grown up he is already. He’s always running, climbing, dancing, singing and running again, then watches tv then plays on the ipod. I am even a proud parent because he knows how to make the sign of the cross already. He says thank you, Im sorry and excuse me. Toddler things is what he does best right now, and im not complaining. I just want him to enjoy his childhood like i did.

I am so thankful to the Lord for GRANTING me the opportunity to become a mother.
