At Ate Nuna's 7th birthday party!!! Wearing Kuya Issei's sweater handknit by Grandma when he was around my age! (04 December 2011 // Los Angeles, CA)

  • HEIGHT: 31.75 inches (75th percentile)
  • WEIGHT: 24 lbs. 8 oz. (50th percentile)
  • HEAD CIRCUMFERENCE: 19.5 inches (95th percentile)… They don’t call me Megamind for nothin’!
  • MY FEET: When I landed in Sacramento for our Thanksgiving trip, my Mama couldn’t put my shoes back on my feet!  I think she has given up on lace-up shoes for now and will stick to velcro ones!
  • MAJOR MILESTONES: I am now signing “please” when I want something and I can drink from my straw trainer cup!!!
  • PLAY TIME: I love to connect my toys like a train on chairs or the ledge in the living room.  I also make engine noises when I push my cars and trains around.
  • SOMETHING INTERESTING: I’m really good at squatting.  I do this when I’m walking across a room (to take a quick break) or when I’m checking something out in general.
  • SOMETHING CUTE: I am really good at identifying people.  I can point to people when you ask me where they are.  When Papa, any of my grandparents or my Tita Ging calls, I like to kiss the phone.  I can point out Uncle Danny’s iPad if you ask me where it is AND I’m pretty sure I’ve given his iPad a couple smooches, too!
  • WORDS: “Mama,” “Papa,” “Boo-Boo,” “Cracka” [I have also said “ka” for “car” and “ga” for “gatas” (aka milk in Tagalog)]
  • DISLIKES: Cookie Monster, Angry Birds, Pixar’s Ratatouille, and using blankets.
  • LIKES: all vehicles!  Plus, Thomas the Train, Lightning McQueen, SpongeBob SquarePants and his Bubble Buddy, Yo Gabba Gabba and The First Wives Club (or maybe I just like Diane Keaton).
  • NEW DIGS:  I feel very at home in NYC, but I am mainly excited to be reunited with my Papa!
