The teething problems

Teething happens between 6 – 24 months old baby.  It is the time when the infant’s teeth erupt the gum.   There are several signs and symptoms when the baby is started teething.  Some may call it the teething problem because the baby started to feel uncomfortable, irritable, have fever, cough, diarrhea and the likes.  It is indeed a problem because some babies always cry and want to be carried always.  That is what I have experienced from my nephews and nieces.  It was the difficult stage of the baby and me.  I include myself because I get so tired taking care of the baby during teething for I have to deal with the teething problems.

As of the moment, my eight (8) months old niece is started teething.  She feels the discomfort, has the fever and wants to be carried all the time.  One tooth is already showing and the other one is started to come out.  Her gums are swollen that makes her feel uncomfortable.  Carrying the niece the whole day is making me so tired.  If they have a nanny I do not have to do it all alone.  Anyways, I hope that the niece will be free from this teething problems.  And I beg the teeth to just come out and do not give the niece a hard time.  Please be a friend to her.

Becoming a Korean Drama Fanatic

I like watching Korean drama way back 2003 and I became a fanatic.  I like the plot and story of their dramas.  I am into their romantic comedy plot of the story.  I even tried to learn their language so that I do not have to read the subtitles every time I am watching their drama.  But learning alone is not easy.  I decided to stop and just be contented and thankful for the subtitles because I am able to understand the story and the conversation of the actors and actresses in the drama.  My family used to tease me because of this addiction.  But I do not mind them because I am happy with what I am doing and these dramas are my inspiration.

Lately, I noticed that my niece is becoming a Korean drama fanatic.  Her addiction started when she watched the drama Code Name Yong Pal.  She watched this drama many times already because she really likes the leading man in the story.  And now she is digging more dramas lead that by the same actor.  Also, the niece is learning the OST (original sound track) of this drama.  I am hearing it everyday and many times in a day.  Now I know the feeling when my family is so bothered of me addicted to these kind of dramas.haha!

She sure is the sweetest

Every Friday is my schedule of doing my laundry.  But because I am not feeling well I did not able to do my laundry.  It makes me sad seeing my loads of laundry but I am so weak to do it.  I decided to my laundry this week.  Yesterday when the niece is doing her laundry, I asked her if she could include my jeans to lighten up my laundry.  I was not expecting her to say yes because I have asked her before already but she said no.  I am just testing her yesterday.  And I am surprised that she said yes.  And told me that she will do all my laundry.

I am the happiest aunt I must say because of my niece gesture.  She sure is the sweetest, though most of the time she is stubborn.haha!  I can say that she is becoming more responsible now and I can count on her.  I rest well yesterday, also stress free because my laundry is done.  Big thanks to my niece for helping me doing my laundry.  I hope that she will become more responsible daughter, niece, big sister to her siblings so that her parents will be so happy that we raised a good child.  Keep up the good works niece, you’re making me so proud of you.  Be good and hope stubbornness will be gone for good.

Thanks God the niece is getting better

Last week my niece brought to the hospital because of high fever.  She has suffered from high fever for four days already.  We tried to medicate her at home but her condition is getting worse.  Because the city is in dengue outbreak, we  decided to bring her to the doctor to have her checked.  At the hospital the doctor told us that she is infected my dengue fever.  We re panicking to be honest after hearing it because there are lots of dengue fever victims in the city.  We thought of the worse thing happen after knowing that the niece platelet counts are decreasing to 60.

The supposed to be a check up was end into admission.  We want to make sure that the niece is monitored well.  And being in the hospital is the safest place for her.  My brother is so worried of the condition of her daughter when the platelet counts went down to 14 and undergo blood transfusion.  We are worried and panicked but did not lose hope that the niece will get better soon.  We prayed a lot and gave her medicines and herbal medicine that will help in increasing her platelet.  After five days the niece is getting better and was discharge in the hospital.  We are so thankful to God for He hears our prayers.  Thank you God for always with us and for the healing of the niece.

Her 13th Years

My niece celebrates her 13th birthday last July 2, 2016.  This is a bit late post but still I want to share it here to give thanks to God for the 13th years of joyful life of my niece.  Time really flies so fast.  I can’t believe that she is now 13 years old.  Seems like it was just yesterday when I carry her on my arms from the nursery room.  The niece grown so fast and can’t help but cry for it reminds me that I am not getting any younger.  I should get married soon for me to have children of my own.LOL  Opps…off-topic sorry about that.

Anyways, I want to great the niece a very happy birthday.  We had simple celebration at home.  Her wishes were granted on her special day.  My sister ( her mommy) bought pork for her requested Adobo, her mom bought chocolate cake, her grandfather (my father) gave money to her mom to buy the rest of the ingredients for the viands/foods that we are going to prepare on her special day.  We prepared all her favorites and the family’s favorite.  Even though it is just a simple celebration, still it is special because everyone in the family is contributing to make her day extra special.  I wish her good health, happiness in life, do well at school and will become a responsible and God-fearing person.  Again, Happy Birthday niece and may God bless you always.  Do not forget to always pray to Him.
