Talking little bear

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

R Bear has this little “song” when she wants to breasfeed (yes, she’s almost 2!  I wanted her to self wean but so far there’s no sign yet).

“Dede na, mmm mmm mmm”  in a singsong voice.

That has led other members of the Bear family to ask for the same things in the same manner.

So when E Bear wants me to turn on the A/C, he goes “aircon na, mmm mmm mmm”.


R bear now has the following words in her vocabulary.  This is NOT in chronological order, meaning, not in order of appearance.  And it’s from memory.  I know there are some other words that she knows, but at the moment, these are what I remember. READ MORE

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?)  😀

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.

Waving bye bye

Just had to post this before I forget.

Shobe Bear suddenly started waving bye bye this month.  Or was it late last month?  I’m not very sure about the exact date, but she’s doing it like a pro! :)

Baby Bear Standing!

For a few seconds at a time, anyway 😀

Girl Bear just got more courageous about letting go of whatever she’s holding on to at the moment.

Moments like this, Papa Bear and I just try to savor the moment, as we know that her days of babyhood are definitely numbered.

Pretty soon, she’ll be walking on her own.  I’m excited and sad at the same time.
