Commute Day

Holiday is L O V E!

Don’t we just all love holidays. For most, this will mean more me-time, Travel time, relax relax, and more time to do personal stuff.  But for us, this means more time with Liam.

Since we transferred to our new home, Liam was not able to ride the padyak (pedicab here in Cebu) and Jeepney anymore.  So Dino and I decided that it will be our commute day yesterday.

We started walking from our house to the padyak terminal (as per Dino, it’s about half km).  We think this is the farthest Liam had walked in his life (hehe).   Sa layo, he asked us in the middle of walking.. “Mom, Where is Kumati (Makati)??”  hahahaha..

Liam is really a big boy na. He don’t want to sit on my lap anymore and wants to be seated at the estero side.  Poor Daddy have to sit at the front seat (facing us).   When we’re still staying in the office, Liam used to ride padyak every morning when he gets up and every afternoon after his afternoon nap.

in the jeepney.. i had to sit at the back as the front seat is too small for the 3 of us.. :)

We rode the padyak upto the jeepney terminal and like before, Liam wants to sit in front.  Now it’s mommy turn to sit at the back. When Liam got a little older (before he turned 2), instead of padyak in the morning, Dino used to take him on jeepney rides every morning as part of their bonding. They will buy bread and look at the fishes along the park.  They did this for a while too, that Liam recognize the place even upto now.  He knows that he is in IT Park and where he can the fishes.

Oh and yes, another thing, this trip also proved that Liam is really a good listener.  This is his conversation with his dad while in the jeep.

Liam: Dad, kuya is using kambyo..
Daddy: Yes.
Liam:  Pajero don’t need kambyo, because it’s automatic na.
Daddy smiles knowing that he got it from him.  (they had the pajero gear conversation 2 weeks earlier and never did Liam mentioned it until yesterday)

Anyway, we watched the fishes and play a little with the fountains and had breakfast in Jollibee, We used to do this during weekends before he turned 2.  Lately kasi, we just drive thru Jollibee for weekend breakfast.  After that, as a bonus….

Taxi going home..

..we rode the taxi going home.  One of his requests din for the longest time is to ride a taxi. A bit weird, kasi there are times when he will tell us that he don’t want to ride Hi-Ace anymore and he wants to ride taxi instead.  He was ecstatic when we told him that we’re riding taxi going home!

Thank you mommy and daddy! :)
Thank you mommy and daddy! 🙂

We let Liam swim in his pool after our mini trip and played all day.  Now, we are looking forward to our long weekend together.

 

Happy Weekend with Wowo and Wawa

Being the first and only Apo, Liam is often visited by wowo and wawa (his paternal grandparents).  Wowo never failed to fly in to Cebu every month to visit Liam. Jet-setter si wowo no!?

Since these once a month visits are the only time they spend with their precious little boy, we make sure that it’s all worth their time and effort. Last February, Dino was able to take their photos and luckily, weather was on our side and we were able to go to Family Park.  Liam was so happy and eager to show his wowo and wawa the animals and play with them at the park.

Sunday! Fun Day!

If there’s one more thing am thankful about MCWD aside from the water provision, is them operating Family park!  It’s a park here in Talamban, Cebu that has a big fish pond, a swimmimg pool, a big field complete with seesaws, swings and slides and Liam’s favorite part –   the mini zoo. Though animals here are nothing comapred to Manila Zoo or Tagaytay Mini Zoo but it’s still better than nothing.  With only 10 pesos entrance fee for adults additional 10 for parking. San ka pa!?  Oh, mind you, entrance fee is for free every first Sunday of the Month!! O diba!? nakakatuwa!!??

This is not the first time we visited Family Park.  But this time around, we went there prepared.  We brought with us a mat, some food and drinks and a lots of toys…

We brought his bubble maker to play with..
Bubble Time!! 🙂

Lunch Breaks with Liam

Since Dino and I are both working.  We make it a point that we have free time for Liam during our office days.  One of the perks of our Cebu Set up is we can play with Liam during lunch break, after we had our Lunch (while his yaya is having her fill too).

Here are some of the routines we do during our lunch break with Liam…

Liam asking me to hold the banana while he eats…
so he could run…
and roll on the bed…

 

Liam getting ready to jump off the bed… one.. two.. three…

 

JUMP!

 

other days naman, this is what we do…

Liam flipping his chair…

 

then he climbs on it…

 

getting ready…

 

then.. JUMPS!!!

In some days, he uses his table naman to play peek a boo with his dad.  He also uses all our pillows to play hiding where his butt is showing naman lagi, hehehe.  At times naman, we cut his fruits and vegetables.  Haay simple things but great joy for the 3 of us.

 

A B C Pictorial

A friend knew that am requesting for wooden educational toys from Liam’s ninongs ang ninangs.. Kapal lang no? hehehehe.. Since she have a few stocked (her kids are big na..) she lend it for Liam to play with…

Finding Letter B..
Wala na… He got it na..

 

L – I – A – M
“Dad! this is my name..” 🙂

Not only he learns his alphabet.. the next day, he brought his doggy inside the circle, and they try not to break the perfect circle – Motor development din.. 🙂

“Dad, am dizzy na..” (he ran in circles kasi.. ayan..)
Love Love Aw Aw! still careful not to touch the circle.. 🙂

Love you Liam. 🙂
