the tale of mister nailcutter


I cut my baby’s nails once a week. It was easier back then, when she was so small, she can barely lift anything except her head. Now,ย the struggle is real. hahaha.

when she started learning how to crawl, whenever, I would cut her nails, I’ll just distract her and count one through ten in English, Filipino and Arabic, she would listen intently during those times and alas! I have already finished!

the other day, I find it so difficult to make her sit still for me to be able to start cutting her long nails. I started doing the counting thing but it’s wasn’t working anymore. I even gave her stuff to play with but she ends up throwing those things in my face. And then suddenly, I said, hold it and she was startled, (with a weird sounding voice) “Hello Pia! I am Mr. Nailcutter! I am very very hungry! May I eat your nails?”ย  ย she started giggling and she gave out her hands willingly. (with a weird voice again) Ho, ho, ho! I am Mr. Nailcutter and I eat nails for dinner!” and then goes the giggling again.

that was one of a hell experience, I’m wondering what technique should I do next time. hahaha on a second thought, I could do her nails while she was sleeping but I’ll be sleeping too so no no no. Ill just think of another story to tell hahaha.

my little one’s a month old now! I’m telling you guys she’s got a bit of a temper but she’s adorable nonetheless.

(start from upper left) inaantok. ginulo. nagising ang diwa, badtrip men! nagalit! Wahahaha

Time flies really fast! It was just yesterday that I’m feeling her kicks in my tummy and now she’s kicking me for real with matching eye rolling. I don’t know where she got her maldita tendencies though. hahahaha

Oh, my baby girl can sometimes be as princess-like if she would like to be but that would be when she’s peacefully sleeping ๐Ÿ˜ด.

our baby is now a little lady

I haven’t slept soundly for a longtime now but who am I to complain when just one smile of my little one makes it all worthwhile? (I’m definitely baby-whipped!hahaha)

achievement unlocked!


my baby’s umbilical cord has fallen off!yey!oh, by the way, she’s now one week old! (insert happy me here ๐Ÿ˜)

I have taken a picture of my baby’s cord together with the clamp. I know it might look gross but I don’t care. #sorrynotsorry

By the way, I have another good news, I’ve expressed breastmilk up to 3 ounces! Thanks to malunggay capsule! Thanks to sabaw ng halaan made by tatay and other sabaw that they keep on preparing for me. I’m so happy to give breastmilk to my little Sophia. Aside from the famous line that “breastmilk is best for babies”, breastfeeding gives me a chance to bond with my baby. It also gives me that “mommy na talaga ako” feeling.

Tada! I hope I’d be able to express more milk as weeks and months go by. Wish me luck peeps! ๐Ÿ˜‰

my mom’s in town. she arrived the other day thinking that I’m already on labor. unfortunately, it seems my baby’s enjoying her sweet time inside my tummy and doesn’t plan on coming out anytime soon. well, I do hope I get to see her sooner though. Everyone’s excited to meet her.

we don’t have much to do here at my in-laws so we went to their backyard yesterday just to roam around and chit-chat. It’s been almost a year and a half since I last saw her. she’s grown thinner, I think. taking care of them (hitler, her grandchildren, nieces and nephews) is taking its toll on her. I hope that her short stay here with us will do her good and will make her relax for a little while.
