It has been 1 year of being a Mom to our Audrey, and I must say, It is truly such a bliss having her in our lives. For her first birthday, Martin and I decided to have it at Mcdonalds. The branch where it was held was at Glorietta 3, Makati. Being it our first time to book the franchise, we are very pleased with the branch’s customer service. But honestly, to say that we are pleased is an understatement.
Time flies so fast, and in a month’s time, Audrey will be turning one! For her first birthday, Martin and I both agreed to celebrate her birthday at Mcdonald’s. After researching online, we figured the best thing to do was ask. We first went to a branch near us (SM Bicutan) and here’s what we learned:
To be a mother, where do I even begin?
Life completely changed, 360 degrees! I used to have my own money, buy things I want, eat wherever I want, watch the latest movies, and lastly, exercise whenever I CAN! Everything has changed now. Every single thing that I do now is for my family. I would be a hypocrite to say that I don’t miss what I used to do. But mostly, every single day I’m tired. Continue reading
One of the advantages of having an abundant breastmilk supply is, well, aside from the amazing health benefits your baby will have. It costs nothing. However, for someone who has already ran out of that gold liquid, we rely to formula milk.

It was exhausting. I didn’t have enough time to nurse and just relied on formula milk. Even if I did have time? When I tried expressing milk, I had very little which was very depressing. Today was worse as it didn’t even fill up a teaspoon. Continue reading
I finally gave birth to my bundle of joy, and I must say it was an experience I’d never forget. When I was weeks away my due date, one of my many questions I kept searching online was, “how will I know if I’m about to give birth?” “Will my water break, just like how it’s shown in the movies?”.

On June 20, 2015 will mark my 40th week in my pregnancy, and I’m very thankful that my little angel is a full term baby. I’m also thankful to be surrounded with so much love, support and blessings from our families and friends. M and I may not have been able to prepare ourselves, but despite the ordeal, were able to cope up through this experience. Opportunities even opened for M and I, and we strongly believe that our angel is behind all the blessings we’ve been receiving.
I’m almost 38 weeks in my pregnancy now and thankfully, M and I now know what our baby’s gender is. Were having a BABY GIRL!
There’s a new chapter in my life that I’m about to face in about a month from now. Something, admittedly I was not prepared for. But, at the same time, gives me so much joy.
