On Party Planning

Leave a comment

It’s exactly 1 month and 1 week until my little boy turns one and I haven’t done much with the preparation *sad. I lurked and joined discussions on party preparations in Smart Parenting,Female Network,Kiddie Party hoping to learn and get some useful ideas. I learned a lot and already had many plans on my mind but still haven’t done anything about it.

I don’t want to cram and spent at lot,that’s why I really need to start planning and do things now. I better write down what I’m able to accomplished so as to keep track and make sure that I don’t miss a thing.

My Checklist /Guide for Jed’s 1st Birthday

I’m excited and at the same time a little bit worried since the last party that I host was 6 years ago (when Sam turned 1). Hoping that everything will turned out fine and I can manage to throw a memorable party for Jed in the most budgeted way :D.

The 1st six months


I thought that being pregnant for the second time will be easier since the body is already adept with the changes and developments that it will experience. Well, I am totally wrong. It’s true that every pregnancy is unique just as the saying that every individual is unique.

My second pregnancy is a planned one. Long before, we decided that a five year gap is a good interval if we are planning to have more than one child. Since this is the year that my eldest will turn five, by the second quarter of last year, I started to visit my OB for routine checkups and consultation. And in the early months of the 3rd quarter, I became pregnant. The comfortability that I’m looking forward in this pregnancy is quite impossible during the first and second trimester. I have to take medicines that will prevent me from having a  miscarriage. I even took almost a month of bed rest. There are lots of time that I almost passed out (thank GOD that my better half is always with me for all those times).

All of the hardships and pains that I endure during the nine months of my pregnancy is by all means worthy. I gave birth to a 7.5 healthy baby boy. We named him JED ( a combination of letters from mine and hubby’s name) Nathaniel (Gift from GOD).

It's a Boy!

Got the looks of Sam

The 1st Five Months of Life

Now I’m on the 6th month of post pregnancy and I still haven’t shred the extra pounds that I gained, our little boy had reached the half year of his life. Every milestones marked, witnessed, enjoyed and thanked for, all seems just yesterday. I really thanked GOD ALMIGHTY for this gift that he bestowed on us. Rest assured that by all means, we will give him (Sam too) all the best (love, guidance,support, etc.) that we can provide (with GOD by our side).

Happy 6th Month our dear Jed Nathaniel.

Behold, children are a heritage from the LORD, the fruit of the womb a reward. Like arrows in the hand of a warrior are the children of one’s youth. Blessed is the man who fills his quiver with them! He shall not be put to shame when he speaks with his enemies in the gate. (Psalms 127:3-5 ESV)
