  • you squeal

  • you'll hold on to papa's thumb and pinkie when he waves them in front of you

  • your nai nai says she loves you as much as she loves papa

  • you can scratch your own little head

my love for you increases with every day. i'm excited to see you grow and learn.

A month

Our little cloud turns a month today. :)

My little jesture
"Rainbow eyes"

  • I love staring at her.

  • She makes the most darling faces.

  • She often grabs a tuff of her hair as she feeds.

  • She'll usually cry when waking up out of confusion and hunger.

  • Mushy meadows has coined her smile as "rainbow eyes".

  • When I hold her she almost always tries to eat my arm.

  • She seems curious always looking about.

  • She feeds often.

  • She pooed on papa's hand last week.

Feeding marathon


Chomp in the morning
Chomp at night
You chomped when everything
Was going alright.

Chomp chomp chomp chomp chomp chomp
Chomp chomp chomp chomp chomp chomp

We thought we had everything
figured out but then you started
to kick and pout

Chomp chomp chomp chomp chomp chomp
Chomp chomp chomp chomp chomp chomp

Finally put hubby and baby to sleep. We haven't napped since 9 this morning. Baby was on a feeding marathon. Not sure what is wrong exactly. We are currently breastfeeding and supplementing w/ formula. We had a nice little pattern going for the past couple days. Then today I thought maybe my breast milk will be enough for baby since she spit up the last formula feeding. But this began a long day of right, left, right left, baby sleeping, put baby down, baby wakes up, left, right ...etc. Worried for her. Off to bed now. If you have any advice do tell. :) Thanks.

Introducing ....

Currently typing with one hand. Speculation regarding end of baby watch 2009 was correct. :) Little Serene Cloud (translated meaning) was born on day 13 @ 1:36 A.M. weighing 7.2 pounds. Water broke naturally @ 8:00 A.M on the previous day. Long labor process. Unfortunately the best laid plans of mice and men often go astray. Little cloud was fortunately though healthy and that's all that matters. :) More details to come.
P.S. Life is not yet serene but filled of joy.

Baby Watch 2009 - Day 11 (Anniversary)

It's our 5 year anniversary! Hubby brought home Sprinkles Cupcakes! He got pumpkin, strawberry, chocolate and cinnamon sugar! Baby decided to hang in there so she could eat Korean tofu w/ us instead of stressing through labor. What a smart little baby... :) We were too full to eat the cupcakes. So she probably won't come tomorrow either since she'll probably want some. :D

Baby Watch 2009 - Day 11 (Waiting)


A wall separates you and me,
You are happy where you be,
I'll keep waiting and longing to see,
My cute sweet little baby bunny...


I had a contraction last night and the great thing is I actually was excited to feel the pain. ;) I told babiest she could come whenever she wants. Today, the doctor said I was still only 2 cms but more effaced. Babiest just might want to be a July baby. ;) I'll be induced next week if she wants to come out within a week.

Baby Watch 2009 - Day 10 (Sunshine)

I saw daylight! I guess I should have been taking walks before today. I decided to go for a walk around the community. It's quite nice and sunny outside. The sunshine and the walk made me happy and awake.

BTW - Baby isn't out yet. ;)

Baby Watch 2009 - Day 9

Ate peanut butter and jelly sandwiches for lunch.

Made some chicken pot pie soup from this recipe I think I made dinner too early. Need to time it better.

Baby was dancing to music in the morning. She just moved now. Maybe she'll be a punctual little one and make her debut on the 25th? I hope I don't have to get induced. I'm starting to get anxious.

Just playing around w/ my wacom tablet:

Baby Watch 2009 - Day 8 (Monday again)

Slept until 10:50 a.m.! Sweet. First day I slept in. Days are longer when you don't watch tv! :) Yay. I need to give it up. I ate a mixed greens salad w/ raspberry vinaigrette and avocado. Yummy.

Swiffered the walls. The swiffer is a great invention. Washing the sheets and covers now. No contractions yet.

Baby Watch 2009 - Day 7 (Father's Day)

Happy Father's Day to my hubbie, father and grandfather :D. I napped twice. Went to my father's and grandfather's to celebrate. It was fun. Watched Million Dollar Password for the first time. It was pretty good. ;) It was fun watching it w/ the family. My grandma made us really thick smoothies w/ her vitamix. We got home late at 9 p.m. Was hoping to sleep earlier. Baby looks as if she has dropped. My stomach looks more narrow.

Baby Watch 2009 - Day 6 (Party/Naps)

No pictures today. But napped in the morning and at night after the engagement party. Last night I was so tired and I was thinking please please not tonight I don't think I'll have the energy to push. ;)

So I tried to conserve my energy today. I feel refreshed now after my night nap and shower. ;D

I think I felt a contraction last night at 1:30 a.m. It did feel like a cramp but all over my belly.

Baby Watch 2009 - Day 5 (Hanging out day)

Made myself some french toast for lunch. ;) Yummy. Reminded me of childhood only this time I used a recipe. When we were younger we made french toast by putting eggs, sugar and soy sauce together. Mushy thinks it was gross but I had fond memories of it. :D

Today I relaxed mostly. Read a baby book. Hung out w/mushy meadows. We just watched reality tv shows and talked during commericals. When hubbie came home, we talked and ate pizza. Yums.

In labor news: I think I just had another sign of labor occur ( #3. No contractions yet though.

Baby Watch 2009 - Day 4 (Crafty Day)

Ribbit ribbit! I made a froggy for a friend's engagement party on Sat. Wonder if I'll make it to the party. I'm already 2 cm dilated and baby has been quite active today.

Baby Watch 2009 - Day 3 (Lazy Day)

The lazy day...

I read some baby books, napped, washed 2 loads of laundry, watched t.v and just cleaned up the fireplace mantel (took down Christmas themed decorations ;)).

I'm really trying to read more about taking care of baby before she comes.

Days seem short even while lounging at home.

Reading makes me sleepy.

Baby Watch 2009 - Day 2 (Cooking Day)

The good: Watched a lamaze video, tried practicing pushing and breathing. Roasted a chicken, made rice, sesame peanut noodles. Cleaned the bathrooms.

The bad: More tube watching. But I watched baby story, chopped & birth day. Birth day on T.L.C is pretty interesting and has medical comments about the birthing process.

Currently I'm pretty sleepy. *yawn* Baby is still here in my belly. She likes kicking my left hip bone. :D

Baby Watch 2009 Begins - Day 1 (Cleaning day)

Today was my first day of maternity leave. Baby is due in 10 days. Doctor said she should be here by her due date.

So I'm trying to clean up and prepare for her.

Good: Cleaned out the fridge (washed all the shelves), mopped the floors, did 2 loads of laundry one for baby and one for the floor coverings. I also napped a bit. Made myself a fried egg sandwich. Went out w/ the hubbie to give 5 bags of clothing to GoodWill. Yay. Clean sweep. ;)

Bad: Watched Choppped, Property Virgins, Birth Day, Jon and Kate and some dubbed Korean dramas.

I'll be posting my little adventures at home here until she arrives. So if I don't post you know where I am. ;)

Baby Boom

The baby boom for tomorrow's baby shower ... :) Exciting.

Nesting is a sign that the little babiest will be here soon. I cleared out a section in the closet for her.

Babies like to be swaddled!

I'm doing good. Baby is well too. She's my little rollie pollie. :) Lately she's been in interesting positions where I lay down and my belly is slanted. I wonder if she's poking her little bum up at me. ;) But I have 2 more months to go and on my 30th week. Everyone that sees me thinks I'm delivering anytime now.

I've been practicing making receiving blankets from Cami Crochet's Tutorial.

I'll make a couple more mini ones before the big one for baby. ;)

Life is too short to be so sad...

The rain will stop,
If you climb to the top,
And sit on that cloud,
Take a look around
You're not only one,
To be having no fun ...
Life is too short to be so sad....

Baby moves...

I captured my babiest on video. She's doing her acrobatics. Towards the end you'll see her pop on my left side. :D She's such a little charmer. Mushy got to feel her dancing around this past weekend. :)

More babies...

One is a Mateo boy baby, Gavin boy baby, and the last one is the one I kept (she sleeps on our bed). The first two I gave to two set of new parents. :)

Crafting on a rainy weekend

It's been rainy in So Cal. Rain helps plants grow, and crafting go...

Hand painted paper magnets. Together they make a flower. :D

Another clementine doll. She has brown locks of hair. I still didn't keep this one! :D
I also drew some little pieces of art too. These items were sent out to SquishyCuteStuff in the previous trade. :D

A little squishy cute something got sent my way...

The doorbell rang, ding a ling a ling. I peeked out the window and saw a postman, hopped downstairs to see a brown package on my doorstep. Ripped it open to reveal a cute kawaii black apple doll and bear from SquishyCuteStuff in a trade. Totally cute!! I'm going to save her for my little one. I love the colors! :)

Thank-you Squishy! :)

Ready set ACTION!

Doesn't it look like her eyes are open? I read they don't open until 26 weeks? She's only 21 weeks.

This is an action shot. She has started kicking about two weeks ago. It started out w/ light little taps. Then all the sudden it was little pops. It makes me laugh when I feel them. My husband looked slightly scared when he first felt the harder kicks. He was shocked. In this picture you can see she's ready to punch. We also saw her curl up her two legs and kick them at once. She woke me up the other night at 4 a.m w/ her kicking.

She totally reminds me of my husband. He makes a certain face that looks just like that with his mouth.

The little taps, pops in the stomach are the best ever. I lay around waiting for the her little movements everyday now. I totally love them and her. :)

It's a ...

Girl!!!! :) I'm one day early but I hope you all don't mind. I'll post the winner tomorrow after I tally the guesses. This is the little prize. :) It's my first human crochet doll. She can sit on her own and was made the day after I found out. She's totally inspired by the little one growing. My husband wanted me to keep her but it was my intention was to give her away! I'll have to make myself another one. :)

Her name is Clementine. Doesn't she look like she wants a hug!? :D

Ultra sound baby

There is our little critter. :) You can guess if the baby is a boy or girl if you don't already know! But the ultrasound went well. I was laying in the room for 30 minutes staring at the lights as the technician took measurements of the little baby. I almost fell asleep. Then she said she would call in my hubster. She showed us the baby's face, eyes, spinal cord, and heart. It took her a while to figure if it was a boy or girl since the baby's legs looked very close together. But I'll reveal that next week... :)

(About the picture) The baby's hand is close to it's face and it's laying on it's other arm. :) * Squeal - I can't stop staring at it! *
