My last post on my profile was 4 days ago. At 20 weeks, my plan to at least be on time in posting Unyara's weekly snaps is still a plan. I'm never this lax in social media before but nowadays, it has become an afterthought. Sometimes, I get anxious whether this laziness would hunt me… Continue reading Change Has Come!
Last year, February 17 was a special day. It was the kick-off session of our church's young couple's ministry. God surprised us in the morning of that day. My pregnancy test showed a positive result.

But if I put God first amongst the 4, He will take care of the 3 for me already. Yay!
Lately, I always find myself fearing for the day that I will have to go back to work. Thinking that I'll have to rely on other people to take care of Unyara is pure agony. I sometimes reason that it'll be for 12 hours only and that I'll be with her at night. But it's… Continue reading How To Get Back on the Grind After 4 Months of Maternity Leave
Baby concerns don't bother me as much few weeks ago but now that the end of my maternity leave is so near, suddenly, worries bombard me back to back. Thanks God, we finally have an Unyara-minder. The 2 remaining concerns were how to feed her when she still refuses the bottle and if she will… Continue reading Am I Overparenting if I’m Concerned Whether My 3-Month Old Baby Gets Enough Brain Activity While I’m At Work?
