Miscellany Monday


Miscellany Monday @ lowercase letters

1. { Sick, sick baby } My poor little baby was sick for a good 2 weeks. At first we thought it was just a common cold and after his fever continuously to sky rocket we finally took him to the hospital. Poor little one had an ear infection waiting to be treated. Thank God we finally knew what was wrong. For a week he was on antibiotics, and my little one was still recovering in this picture. It was so heartbreaking watching my baby so helpless and weak. It was even harder as his parents not having the ability to do much, but comfort him.

 

2. { Lost weight } During the time frame that Ryu was sick he had lost so much of his cute little baby fat. To top off the fact that by being sick he really didn’t want to eat anything not even snacks. Now that Ryu’s recovering slowly but surely he’s eating little by little. He’s being picky and he’s eating junk, but I’m just glad he’s eating something rather than nothing at all.

 

3. { Games } We took Ryu to Chuck E Cheese for his Uncle Nick’s 3rd Birthday (Yes, he has an uncle that’s 3). He enjoyed going around and he just looked absolutely amazed about being in an arcade. It was so cute to watch him just try and babble his way through trying to communicate about which games he liked.

Flashback Friday


I figured since it seems like it’s been a while that I’ve posted on here that anything can be considered for a “Flashback Friday” post. It’s definitely been a while and for some reason I feel like I’ve neglected posting anything for Ryu, but that’s not really the case. With the Holidays towards the end of the year and with so much happening in our home lives I’ve just been sort of busy trying to organize everything. I’m still in the process of trying to plug in old posts on here just for my sake of having something keeping track of Ryu’s life. It’s nice to be able to look back on his growth and of course the moments we share together as a family.

Let’s start with the Flashback Friday.. I’m going way back and let’s start from Christmas. I’m glad Ryu had a successful Christmas! Seriously, I don’t really care whether I receive any gifts as long as my son get’s the proper Christmas he deserves. He got tons of gifts from our friends and family and he’s absolutely enjoying all his brand new toys. He’s so spoiled he even got a basketball set this Christmas courtesy of my mother. I’ll post pictures of that once he’s feeling much better. Here’s are pictures from our Christmas Eve.


I was very happy that Ryu got the concept of Christmas (well sort of). I don’t think that I’ve ever felt so much more excited for Ryu having to have this wonderful holiday. I love that he got to spend time with his grandparents and with just family in general. Lately, it just seems like our family is quite dysfunctional, but honestly what family isn’t? I was just glad that for one evening we can all put our problems aside and just enjoy the moment.

Here are a couple pictures of my baby.

Happy Birthday Ninong Roland (Godfather)


Happy Birthday Ninong (Godfather) Roland!! He’s finally 27! We’re thankful that we got invited to his dinner and of course we had to bring the little munchkin with us. We went to a buffet and boy did Ryu eat a whole bunch! I’m so proud of him because he actually enjoyed all the different types of food that I was feeding him. He thoroughly enjoyed some sauteed mushrooms which happens to be mommy’s favorite as well!

That evening Ryu and I came from a previous engagement with his other Godparent. Ryu just had a blast roaming around with other children so going to dinner with our friends was a change in the environment for him. He loves all our friends and therefore, he ran around like crazy with tons of smiles and kisses. I’m very glad Ryu isn’t the type of child that doesn’t easily get scared off by people. I mean at the same time that can be a bad thing, so we’ll just have to teach him about strangers, lol.

Here are a couple pictures taken by his Ninong Jay (http://jayjayn.com).

Outfit:

Long sleeved undershirt from Target

Roll up plaid button down from H&M

Cargo Pants from Baby G.A.P

Beige snow boots from Baby G.A.P

I noticed that my baby isn’t quite a baby anymore. He’s more of a growing little boy, and eventually he’ll be a man. I can’t believe how fast time is flying by. He’s all about them big boy clothes and shoes! To top off the fact that he’s just sporting a really short boy cut. Ahh, he’s growing up way too fast!

Musically Inclined


Ryu’s at the age where he’s growing into his own person. I know he’s starting to pick and choose what he likes whether it’d be food, clothes, shoes, etc. I also am aware that as kids grow they’re brains are pretty much like sponges. They pick up on anything quite easily and they learn to register on a daily basis. Ryu’s at the age where between his father and I we both share a different taste and delight for music. I absolutely adore classical music, oldies, and some R&B (just to name a few genres). His father on the other hand loves hip hop and rap. I don’t think that there is anything wrong with the music that he listens to, but for Ryu’s age I don’t think that it’s quite appropriate for him to listen to that kind of music. Obviously I’m already having a problem of trying to contain my “pirates” mouth around Ryu, adding on pretty violent music isn’t really the way to go. I’m not necessarily saying that hip hop and rap aren’t music, but for me I’d rather Ryu be exposed to something that can be quite stimulating and relaxing.

I want Ryu to be that child. I want him to be musically inclined and open minded to playing different type of instruments. I want him to see the beauty of music and how powerful it can really be. I’ve never been the type of person where my family forced me to play an instrument. If anything I’ve always been interested to try and when I did I guess you can say I failed miserably. Now I sort of regret not focusing myself with the violin or the piano. I want Ryu to have the option of being interested in whatever he wants. May that be the type of music his father listens to or what I listen to I just want him to fully understand and enjoy music the way we do.

What kind of music do you find appropriate for your child?

Flashback Friday; Ryu says “Green”


I’m glad that even if these clips are old that his Ninong (Godfather) is still making the effort to post it up. It gives me some type of compilation of what I’m missing out. My little man is growing so fast and sometimes I just can’t even believe he’s my baby. I still get sort of shocked from time to time thinking, “WOW! I’m a mother! I have this innocent life to take care of. I have this little person that I absolutely adore with all my heart”. Seriously, becoming a “new” parent is hard. The transition of taking care of a newborn being introduced to your life is life changing. Not knowing what’s next can become difficult, but it’s all a learning process. Sometimes we make mistakes, but that’s the beauty if it.

The pictures are all taken by his Ninong as well. These are some pictures taken before Ryu got his haircut.
