and then we were FOUR

Finally our small unit is finally complete. With Arnie being home the boys are over the moon happy! They’ve got their savior back, their daddy is finally home – and it marks the end of mommy’s dictatorship run. haha


And like a warm welcome home present, Aden who usually is aloof with Arnie, suddenly becomes his best bud. He follows him around all day, always comes up to him to play and even doesn’t mind being fed and bathed and changed by him.

I can’t put my finger on how and when all this change happened but I’m happy for Arnie that both of his boys adore him like the true hero that he is.


Father’s Day 2013


When I met you, I was complete, when we had Adrian, I was fulfilled and now we have Aden, our family is complete.

Thank you so much for loving us and taking care of us like you do. We are very lucky to have a daddy like you!

Happy Father’s Day! We love you very very much!

a special milestone

One of the benefits of being a SAHM is that I get to spend every moment of my life with my kids.  That for every special milestone in their sweet little lives I was/am there to witness it and share it with them.


Today was no different, my Aden said his first words. He’s been playing with his BAAAs and DAAAs all week and this morning while trying to put him down for his morning nap Arnie was teaching him “DAD-DY” and he repeated it like he was a pro at speaking. It was the sweetest sound I’ve ever heard but I think more than hearing Aden speak what’s more special to me was Arnie’s reaction. It was indescribable and priceless, I hope I never get Alzheimer’s because I never want to erase it from my memory. I think because he doesn’t spend that much time with them sharing that moment with Aden made it all the more special.
