|Life is worth recording! #journalkeeping|
Hi Baby! Thank you for coming into our lives! We are so excited to meet you very soon. For now, I will keep writing you letters, and I hope someday you will feel how much you mean to me and Daddy! I love growing with you. Thank you for holding on so tight and for being as healthy as Mommy. Daddy takes good care of us so well! He is deeply grateful for you! You are a reminder of God's love and His wonderful plans for each of our lives.
You rock baby!! We will study the gospel together, listen to LDS Hymns and go to church with Daddy while you are inside Mommy's womb! Take care my little one!

Our FIRST MONTH together was unnoticed. I didn't know that you're there already! Mommy was enjoying her nightly jog with Daddy and water therapy. I remember one time when I felt so tired after running for less than 5 minutes which was very weird because Mommy could run longer than Daddy. So I decided to rest and walked home. I kinda got a feeling that I might have you inside.
We had our temple date this month with Grandma Trudee, Auntie Ives, Uncle Denz and Daddy Mike. We spent almost 2 whole days at the Manila Temple and performed ordinances from Baptism, Endowment to Family Sealing for Grandma's parents, siblings and grand parents. It was so special feeling closer to our dear ancestors. I was blessed that I had this beautiful experience in the house of the Lord with you!
Our SECOND MONTH was glorious! I found a part of my heart I didn't know existed. It was after Daddy's haircut when we bought a Pregnancy Test from Mercury Drug. I took the test and left it on our dining table. I asked Daddy to check the results for me. Then he said, "Nyles, there are two negative lines. You're not pregnant." I got confused so I checked the results for myself.

I was pregnant. Daddy cried for joy. He prayed straightway to thank our dear Heavenly Father for giving you--- a very special blessing! We waited for you! Did you know that Mommy and Daddy weren't able to sleep the whole night after our Pregnancy Test? Yes! We were thinking about you. Dreaming about you---"our little family to be!"
This month, I started to feel more sick. I had nausea. I was bloated most of the time. I had minor headaches but everything was under control. Daddy was so caring. He was very helpful in every way! He did mostly all the household chores. He made sure we had enough rest, water, proper nutrition, and vitamins. He made us our milk every morning and every night.

What a blast! We had a Christmas Program at home and Dad was one of the 3 Kings who gave baby Jesus and all of us exciting gifts. Although Mommy got tired easily most of the time, she couldn't control her energy when the people she loves are around her. We can't wait to spend this moment with you! We also did a lot of shopping and organizing for ProLook's Christmas Party. Did you know that there was one night when we had to ride a tricycle from SM San Fernando to our house in Angeles? It was a 1 hour+ travel! Thank you for being such a strong baby!Thank you for holding on so tight.
I am deeply grateful that we passed our first trimester successfully with flying colors. Lastly, Daddy & I celebrated our 1st Year Wedding Anniversary too! What a month full of special days! Just how you are to me- so special, so precious!

MARCH. Our FIFTH MONTH was exciting! We were scheduled for our Congenital Scan, actually we could go for the usual ultrasound to find out your gender but Daddy wanted to count your fingers, check your eyes, and everything! He told me that you're his dream and he's so excited to meet you!

3/24/2016: BABY GENDER REVEALED
EMBRACING OUR 3RD TRIMESTER TOGETHER
|Mother's Day @Angeles Ward 2|
creative month. Mommy had a surprise baby shower by the Relief Society. It was so beautiful. It really touched my heart. They prepared lots of foods, games and gifts for us. Tita Patch and Tito Kev sent us a package of gifts for you too. We got all we need from baby clothes, gears, feeding stuff, toys, books and all other paraphernalias. Bishop Dan and his lovely wife gave us a pair of clothing. Tito Jeremie gave you a sleeper and a bag of clothes. Blessings were overflowing this month. We didn't need to buy a lot of things for you. Everything was provided by grace and love. I also started to make DIY organizers for your stuff. Nanay Suting stayed in our house this month. We helped her with her medications, making sure she's healthy before she left for Ozamis to assist Tita Val. We love Nanay! She is a heroine. Daddy and I were always doing our best to spend "babe time" together before your arrival. We went to Clark Museum and Parks with the Santiago Family. We were able to attend a temple session too and had our "Maternity Photoshoot" there by Ronuel Paredes. Yea! Let the good times roll!
Your one and only, "Mommy Nyles-cee"
