Nene –what Baby Bear says when she wants to breastfeed :)

Baby Bear is now 14 months old.  She’s been walking like a pro since 13 months of age. :)

She also stopped bottle feeding.  Absolutely refuses the bottle, whether it contains breastmilk or any other milk.

Her current vocabulary:

Mommy, Daddy, Aya (for ahia/kuya), Yaya, chia chia (Chinese for eat), Nene (for dede), Nanay (for our senior maid), Ama (for my mom), eyes, eas (ears), da dat (what’s that?), was dis (what’s this?)  😀

Help for the bear in big school

posted in: Kuya Bear (Tags: , , ) - No Comments

Mama Bear and Papa Bear have not been bear-y good with updating this family blog.

It’s not easy to have a little bear in big school.  Kuya Bear is now in Kinder 1.  He loves his big school, despite the fact that it’s more difficult than his former (small) school.

But of course, he now has homework.  And tests.  And seatworks.

Papa Bear and I try to help him cope with understanding how big school works.

This is a great resource I’ve found where nice worksheets can be had and printed for free:

Baby walking

posted in: milestones, Shobe Bear (Tags: , , ) - No Comments

Last month, at 1 year and 1 month, my Baby Bear finally learned to walk on her own.  She did it much earlier than her Kuya, who walked at 1 year 3 months.  People say that girls generally walk and talk earlier, and I guess that’s true for my kids.

Walking is one of the major milestones.  When she walked, I really felt like I do not have a baby but a toddler now.  While it’s cause for celebration, there’s a little tinge of sadness that my little Baby is growing up…fast.
