Justin turned two last July 7. Ed and I decided to hold two separate parties for him since our small condo unit would not be able to accommodate his godparents and our whole family. We invited his ninongs and ninangs on July 7 and then the entire family the Saturday thereafter (July 12). They were nothing grand, really. We had on the usual birthday fare for kids (spaghetti, fried chicken, cake) and we had menudo, grilled bangus, sugpo (thanks to Dennis and Meg), cassava (courtesy of Orlan and Meann) for the not-so-young ones. Justin wore a Chinese-inspired costume that his Dad bought in Singapore on a recent business trip. He was so cute!!! I guess all mommies feel that way about their babies. I’m so looking forward to celebrating more of his birthdays with family and friends. Happy birthday, son!
This blog was originally put up to document my son’s growing-up milestones, all for posterity’s sake. But there are other things to write about, aside from “mommyhood,” that merit my attention, and I’m including them all here. This blog now chronicles my life as a mom and a wife and everything else in between. For collabs, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
