My son playing violin for the first time!

July 7, 2010
His first lesson. He came home and played for me. ♥

Most Thursday afternoons, after school, you’ll find my son by Hacienda Sta. Elena Lake fishing with his boy classmates. He enjoys fishing, but only caught a fish (black bass) once. Haha! It teaches him patience :)

This is pretty much the ambience we’ve been basking in for the past 3 years. We wake up at Tagaytay with birds chirping and with fog rolling in. I visit him at school more often than normal (too often, in fact) and we enjoy more birds, interesting insects, fresh air and grand view of Mt. Makiling.

Yes, I believe we are officially de-urbanized :)

Super fast forward to today. September 2011.
Son is now 11. Handsome. Notoriously sweet. Athletic. Imaginative. And yes, circumcised.
Eats mostly healthy food. Gone are the hotdog, tocino, ulam-burger days. Fave food are: Banana bread, eggpie, yoghurt, fresh milk, apples and… 7-Eleven Soft Ice Cream! LOL!

despite all the cigarettes and alcohol i had during first trimester,
despite powdered cow’s milk,
despite store-bought baby food…
son was (IS) adorable, bright and HAPPY.

Analogue Manual Years

my son was born at the time when the “digital era” was just a little pus. hence, photos are from a decade-old, real-life, dust-collecting, album. we didn’t have digital camera back then and internet social life (beyond chat rooms and forums) was just an idea, forgive my scrapbook-y photos.

and no. i am NOT going to upload 12 years worth of photos.
