for my memories' sake

these days, the only quiet time i get is when the little man is down for his naps. not that i'm complaining --- he is at his most active now, fully walking and babbling along --- having conversations on the phone, chit-chatting with his lolo and lola (grandpa and grandma) on skype even though they live about 15 minutes away from us.

the little bhubba has been talking so much that i have to write this blog just so i can go back to it years from now and remember this with a smile. here are his first words (bear with this proud mom, will ya?):

tut - copying the sound the phone makes when dialing
tutbrush - for his toothbrush
bus/truck - complete with screams when he sees them
caaaahhhhrrrr - trying to scare us when he says the simple car
cat - he calls even dogs a cat!
bu-bles - when he sees his play bubbles
balllll - emphasizing the 'l'
tootle - for the turtles he sees at the aquarium
pish - for fish (so typically filipino switching the p for f)
saack - for socks
shu - for shoes
cheese/juice - always looking for food
didi - for milk
bibi - when seeing other babies
mmmmm - for whenever he first tastes something

yesterday, i took a really good look at him --- a long good look. and i wonder, where has time flown? is he REALLY turning 16 months old this 30th?!?

i seriously wish that the clock can just slow down a little, give me more chances to be able to enjoy this once-in-a-lifetime age.

Oh, how precious.
It's so fun to watch these little ones grow and learn. And especially fun as they learn to speak, because they always say things funny, in the sweet, little voices.
It goes by so quickly, enjoy every minute, because 16 months soon becomes 2 years, which soon becomes 3, and so on...
