Glad she is back

Because of the low pressure and the bad weather, the sister’s babysitter for her kids did not able to come back early. Their area flooded due to continue raining for days. The buses and other means of transportation stranded and can’t travel going back to the city. I babysit the kids for more than a week because the babysitter is not yet back. We understand the situation, however, we are worried because the birthday of the sister’s second son would be this week and she is not here yet. She is waiting for rain to stop and the water to subside so she can travel.

Our prayers answered because the babysitter arrives last night. She is back on time I must say. We are glad that the rain stops and the water subside. Because she is back, I can go with the sister today buying the things needed for tomorrow’s birthday celebration. Also, we are happy that the weather gets better today. Mr. Sun is slightly peeking. A little cloudy though, but still hoping for a sunny day tomorrow so the children’s party will be an enjoyable one for the kids. Thanks God for the weather and thanks for guiding the babysitter’s travel back to us.

Another angel added in the family

Last November 12, 2013, my sister-in-law (wife of my younger brother) gave birth to a bouncing baby boy. It was the happiest day of their lives to see the fruit of their love, their bundle of joy. She gave birth via C-section because the baby is too big. The baby is 8 pounds to be exact. The family is happy for them and welcoming the new angel in the family. Unfortunately, we did not able to visit them at the hospital because they live very far from us. Only the older brother went to visit them and bring the little help we have. I wanted to come and see the baby too but it is not possible since I am babysitting my nephews too.

Anyways, I get to see the photo of my new nephew named Zeus Marllo through my brother’s mobile phone. The baby is so cute I must say. Looking at his photo makes me want to carry him on my arms. I really wish I go with my older brother when he went to visit to see the baby personally and also to congratulate my brother and his wife, though I did extend my congratulations through phone. I also told to visit us and bring the baby so we can see him, carry him and kiss him. See the image of the new angel added in the family.

His two front teeth

My nephew just turned eight months old and now his first set of two front teeth is showing. Time flies really fast indeed! He started biting my fingers, shoulder and my cheek. To him it is like playing but to me it is But I do like him doing it especially when I am avoiding his attempt to bite me because he gets angry when I do that. It makes him so eager to bite me. When the second set of front teeth will arrive, I’ll be in danger. Haha! The nephew is growing really fast. He is so bubbly, playful and smiling, the things that I do like and will treasure while he is young. That is why I am taking photos every movement, tricks, and activities he makes every day for his mother to see how cute her son is.

The nephew looks really cute when he smiles and shows off his two front teeth. And I guess he knows that he looks really cute because he loves to smile a lot. I do like to take a photo of him smiling showing his two front teeth but is not possible because he could not stay still. I have tried several times but I only get a blurry image. Hopefully I will take a photo of his first two front teeth one of these days. I want to capture at least one photo for him to look at when he grows older.

Thank God it’s normal

After getting the nephew’s schedule for 2DECHO examination, I am so worried of the result. I know it is not good to think negatively but I cannot help myself. There are lots of negative thoughts that come up in my mind no matter how I tried to think positive. Maybe because of the incident that happens to my nephew few weeks ago. Remembering the nephew’s face had difficulty in breathing makes me think negatively. I even think of the worst case. I had bad thoughts and I hate myself for thinking that way. I just hope and pray that the result after the examination is normal.

While waiting outside the Heart Station, I keep looking at the sister’s face to cheer her up. I have to look fine and think positively so the sister will not worry too much. She even asked me if I prayed for her son, my nephew. Of course I am! When the doctor’s arrives, the negative thoughts came in. I just pray while looking at the nephew. When the check-up is done, the doctor said that the nephew’s heart is normal. We do not have to worry because he is healthy as well as his heart. Thanks to God the result is normal. We can sleep at night now without any worries that the nephew will have difficulty in breathing.

Stressful but blessed week

It started when my seven months old nephew get high fever. The nephew is chilling and looks so pale when the sister came to the house and asked for help. Because we are so worried, we rushed the nephew to the hospital to have the nephew check. Only then we know that the nephew had fever that is why he is chilling and look pale. We are glad that he is fine and we did not have to confine him at the hospital. A day after we brought the two years old to the pediatrician because of severe cough and he also throwing-up after drinking his milk. After their check up, we are glad knowing that the two nephews are fine.

However, the trials are not over yet on that week because the other nephew (my brother’s youngest child) had fever. Also, he keeps on coming back to the bathroom to discharge and vomiting as well. I am so worried so I called the SIL to come home and take her son to the pediatrician. I cannot bring him myself because I look after the sister’s son. Instead of bringing him to the pedia, the SIL prefer to buy medicines. The situation is getting worse to the point of bringing the nephew to the hospital. The nephew was confined at the hospital for four days. Last week was a stressful week for the family but even though, we are still feel blessed because the little boys in the family are fine now. Thanks to God.
