My Letters To The Little One

…love letters from the Mommy

Post # 38

on December 28, 2011

Hi Little One! πŸ™‚ Merry Christmas and Happy 32 Weeks! πŸ™‚ I am so sorry Mommy wasn’t able to post these past few days, especially with the Christmas parties / dinners and last minute shopping to do.

Here are Daddy’s and Mommy’s Christmas party solo pictures from their respective Christmas parties.

Mommy in GiggleBee English's Christmas Dinner in --- well, the office at Tycoon Building0 Ortigas, December 22, 2011

 

We spent both Christmas Eve and Christmas Day at home with your Daddy,Β Nonna, ApΒ Mimi and Great Grandpa. πŸ™‚ Even though there were some hitches, we were able to celebrate the holidays in the happiest way possible! πŸ™‚ Everyone got their gifts — and you got the most number of gifts! πŸ˜› Hahaha! πŸ™‚ Oh, here areΒ our ChristmasΒ pictures. πŸ™‚

Veggie salad for Noche Buena --- cause Mommy and Little One have to eat very healthy foods! πŸ™‚

Salad with Italian dressing (YUM!) and barbeque from our uncles and aunts --- we ate most of them before we took the picture! πŸ˜›

Pork roasting in Nonna's oven πŸ™‚

Christmas Tree, Oh Christmas Tree! πŸ™‚

We didn't bother to put all the gifts in the Christmas Tree --- Mommy got too lazy to wrap your gifts, because you had a LOT of gifts! πŸ™‚

πŸ™‚ Don't worry Little Boy, we'll have our very own Christmas Tree next year. πŸ™‚

I know that looks a lot, but Daddy and I think you still need more more more! πŸ™‚

Β *Sigh* Baby, we’ve come a long way… A lot of things have changed. But all these changes are for the better, I assure you. πŸ™‚ Oh, prolly except the whole weight gain thingy. Mommy’s going to lose all those extra weightΒ after you come out, I promise! πŸ˜› Hahaha! πŸ™‚ I have been posting some of the changes you have been going through for the past few months — so now it’s my turn to post the changes that I have been going through.

~~Weight~~

Pre-pregnancy: 120 lbs.

At 32 weeks: 138 lbs. That’s prolly because you’re a heavy littleΒ boy. πŸ˜›

 

~~Height~~

Pre-pregnancy: 5’4 1/2

At 32 weeks: Still 5’4 1/2. Hahaha. Pregnancy didn’t make Mommy tall, unfortunately. πŸ˜›

 

~~Waist Line~~

Pre-pregnancy: 26-27 in.

At 32 weeks: 38.5 in. Eeeeeep! You certainly made yourself quite comfy there Little Boy. πŸ˜‰

 

~~VS (Vital Signs? Vital Statistics? Hahaha!)~~

Pre-pregnancy:Β  Vital signs (temperature, pulse, BP and respiratory rate) are within low normal range. πŸ™‚ Vital statistics is aroundΒ 36C-27-34.

At 32 weeks: Vital signs are within normal range. πŸ™‚ Vital statistics however, now that’s a different story! 36D-38.5″-36 — in other words, Mommy looks like a total balloon right now. 😦

 

~~Other Changes~~

Pre-pregnancy: Acne-prone, dullΒ skin! 😦 Hair’s too frizzy. 😦 But no linea nigra… Hahaha! πŸ™‚

At 32 weeks: Glowing, dewy, zero-acne skin! πŸ™‚ Hair’s quite cooperative! πŸ™‚ No pedal edema —- yaaaay! πŸ™‚ So far, no stretchmarks in the tummyΒ too. And melasma are in places that are hidden away from the public eye. πŸ˜€ Linea nigra’s there, but that’s okay, cause that’s going away a few weeks after you come out. πŸ˜‰

 

Even though Mommy’s world was turned upside down with all the physical, emotional, mental and financial changes — all these things are worth going through, because we love you SOOOOOOO much Little One. πŸ™‚

See you in a couple of weeks time! πŸ™‚ We’ll be having our 3D / 4D ultrasound soon, and we’ll probably buy your toiletries this weekend! πŸ™‚ Love you Baby! πŸ™‚ β™₯

  1. happy holidays! soon, ur little one will experience his first Christmas πŸ™‚

  2. Happy Holidays pretty momma!!

    Don’t buy too much clothes for newborn kasi they grow so fast, sayang lang. Si Sean ang dami ring clothes he was not able to wear.

    Ang magastos sa damit ay pag around 8 months onwards because they crawl and eat na so lots of clothe change πŸ™‚

    • The Mommy says:

      Hi Sis! πŸ™‚ Talaga? Haaay.. But he doesn’t have clothes na pang-alis yet… πŸ˜› Maybe I’ll buy just a few na lang.

      Ah… Thanks for the advice… πŸ™‚
