My Letters To The Little One

…love letters from the Mommy

Post # 16

on October 4, 2011

Hi Leetol One! 🙂 Sorry, I should have posted your ultrasound pictures, but the camera’s still with Tito Amiel. It’s a long story, but don’t worry… we’ll post it soon enough. Anyhoo, Mommy’s munching on striped chocolate chip cookies as we speak, cause you seem to be looking for more chocolate lately. Haha. 🙂

C is for Cookie, that's good enough for me! 🙂

Daddy was not able to visit during the weekend because he had to tend to some things first, but he’ll make it up to us next week — he made sure of that! We have also been sooooo busy doing paperwork so Mommy and Daddy can get married and stay all together in one house. Doesn’t that sound fun? 🙂 I feel quite excited yet sad at the same time, cause I don’t want to leave your Grandma and Aunt Mimi.. 😦 I’m not used to being away from them for so long. 😦 I do hope they visit us often, and we still get to talk a lot through the phone. Like everyday.

And speaking of houses, Daddy said he knows of one house that’s really near Mommy’s office, near our current house and Grandma’s future house. 🙂 We will check it out soon so we can see if we can move there or not.

Sorry for the vandals, Wikipedia! @_@

Yesterday, Grandma and I went to Greenhills, so we could buy flat sandals and long leggings. Mommy can’t really fit into her jeans anymore, as I’m now a size 34 (from a size 26). Your Grandma was the best, she got into super haggling mode and used the “my daughter’s pregnant” angle, so we got some discounts! 😛 She said some people were looking at me, cause they really can’t decide if I’m pregnant or if I just have beer belly. 😛 Hahaha! 😀 We also saw this verrrrry beautiful baby bag worth 2000 pesos (around $45), with a free small bag and changing pad.


Mommy’s going to buy those bags soon!! I’m so excited!! 🙂 But I still can’t decide on what brand of bottles to buy for you, cause I’m relying on word of mouth from the SmartParenting Forums and a lot of them have been rooting for different brands as well. Of course, we want nothing but the best for you Leetol One, so Mommy’s taking her sweet time to choose. 🙂
As for Daddy, he did well during his exam and interview a week ago, but we still have to wait until he undergoes the final interview on October 18. Oh, and he still has to take the Civil Service Exam on the 16th, so Daddy’s pretty busy — but that doesn’t mean he doesn’t have time for us. He always asks me to put the cellphone on my tummy so you could hear his voice. 😀 Daddy’s very sweet, no? Always cheer for Daddy, okay? 🙂
About Mommy and Daddy’s wedding, we will file the necessary papers next week, so we could attend the required seminars by the local city hall and get the license. Our preferred wedding venue is sooooo kick butt, everyone attending will be talking about it for weeks! 😀 But let’s pray that all of these things work for the better, okay? 🙂 We’ll tell you more about it when we have finalized the reservations.. 🙂
And yeah, you’re 20 weeks now, according to Mommy’s LMP (Daddy and I decided to follow that — so no one gets confused!) Here’s what you look like by now:

at 20 weeks! 🙂


Your baby weighs about 10 1/2 ounces now. He’s also around 6 1/2 inches long from head to bottom and about 10 inches from head to heel — the length of a banana. (For the first 20 weeks, when a baby’s legs are curled up against his torso and hard to measure, measurements are taken from the top of his head to his bottom — the “crown to rump” measurement. After 20 weeks, he’s measured from head to toe.)

He’s swallowing more these days, which is good practice for his digestive system. He’s also producing meconium, a black, sticky by-product of digestion. This gooey substance will accumulate in his bowels, and you’ll see it in his first soiled diaper (some babies pass meconium in the womb or during delivery).

You’re getting quite big na, and I’m really thankful that both of us are gaining weight now. We will also start our calcium supplement tomorrow, soooo I do hope we won’t experience any creepy side effects like when we started having ferrous sulfate. :/

Anyhoo, Leetol One… everyone’s very excited for you! 🙂 You are one of the main reasons why Mommy and Daddy wake up cheerfully every morning, and sleep with a smile at night. We love you so much!! 🙂
