3mo. milestone


Happy 3 mo. birthday baby!

I realized that I’ve been only taking pictures with my iphone. I was wondering why I didn’t have so many pictures of Ryu, then I found that they’re all on my phone, haha. I love this picture I took it when I was on my way to work and I absolutely love the hat I got him cause it has little bear ears. You can’t quite see it on the picture, but it has ears. I purchased the little hat from Children’s Place when it was on sale.

  • Ryu’s starting to laugh out loud now
  • He can sort of roll over one way
  • He tries to reach out for things

I also started to try having Ryu taste certain soups and rice cereal. He’s not quite taking it well just yet, but I’m not even sure if I should have even start feeding him just yet. I just wanted to experiment trying to start feeding him at this age. Anyway, we’ll see how that goes.

Baptism


At only a little over 2 months we decided to get Ryu baptized. To be honest I’m not even Catholic, and I’m only going with the idea because Romeo’s parents are visiting the U.S to meet Ryu for the first time. They are strongly religious and believes that Ryu should be baptized Catholic. Being a Christian it’s not far from my religion, but we decided to bless Ryu not long after he was born anyway. I guess it goes 50/50. This is the first time I was required to take some classes at the church we decided to get Ryu baptized at since it was the only church with the option of going with the program regardless whether I was Catholic or not. Some other churches seem to find a high amount of donation and counseling is required before I can get him baptized.

I should take pictures of the letters we had to make for Ryu when he gets older. I’m not sure if I should continue with Ryu getting confirmed, because as of this moment I’m not quite religious and I might even forget to get him confirmed. Again I’ll say I only did it for Romeo’s parents, because if I really had a choice I wouldn’t have gotten him baptized in a Catholic church.

The venue after the baptismal took place at Zen Buffet. Thanks to Romeo’s parents we were able to invite a good 50 close friends and relatives, but highly chosen to attend. We were low on funding and Zen wasn’t quite the cheapest place to have done the venue. However, it being a buffet already was good enough for all our guests. Thanks to everyone’s donations and kind gifts for Ryu’s baptismal. We highly appreciate it.

Again having Ryu’s Godparents as photographers has it’s perks. I was able to get great pictures from them. I love that they don’t mind or charge us for taking pictures of Ryu on his special moments.

The boy in white, lol

Some of Ryu’s Godparents

I’m sure Ryu got frustrated and annoyed since there were so many people trying to hold him. I’m sure the last thing he wanted was everyone prying at him and trying to pick him up. He was so tired by the time we were done with the whole day. I apologize to all my other friends who weren’t invited. Due to our finances and it being mostly family we didn’t invite majority of our friends except the Godparents. We do feel very bad about not being able to invite everyone, but hope you guys can understand that we didn’t pay for the venue, so we were limited on inviting just anyone.

Baptism Videos


Here are a couple videos home movies from Ryu’s baptism. I’m still in the process of uploading a couple videos to youtube. They’re not edited or anything like that just enjoy raw, uncut, baptism film, lol.

The other videos are going to take a while to upload so please bare with what I’ve got here. Thanks again for enjoying watching Ryu grow up before our eyes.

2nd mo. old


At this point I’m still enjoying my maternity leave, but I will be going back to work in no time. I’m sort of excited to go back to work, but at the same time I’ve fallen so attached to Ryu that I feel like it’s so hard to just leave him. I’ve finally moved back home and learned to keep myself busy. When I was at my mother’s place I sort of felt stuck and I was just bored out of my mind. I sort of felt like no one could visit me since all I did was sleep and eat. At this rate I’m trying to get myself back on track by doing what SAHM’s do. I’ve been cleaning, cooking, prepping, taking care of Ryu and all that in a day’s work.

Ryu’s Changes:

  • He’s starting to slowly focus on me when I call his voice
  • Ryu can slowly push himself up.
  • He’s doubled up on the formula
  • He’s starting to sleep at a certain time frame which is good.
  • He’s slowly noticing his surroundings and getting used to it much more

Eventually I know with time and as Ryu get’s older it’ll be a little bit easier for me since I’ll be getting used to it with routine.
