Draelen is 9 Months Old

13 Apr

 

I blinked and now Drae is almost a year old!  So much has happened.  The biggest milestones include a new home, Kuya Cedro’s acceptance into the nearby Japanese immersion program for kindergarten (which means that Draelen has a guaranteed spot when she’s old enough), Drae eating solid foods, crawling and pulling herself up.

It’s hard for me to be away from her all day long so I try to make the most of the mornings and evenings and weekends.  I find myself constantly smothering her in kisses and wanting to eat her up.  

One thing’s for sure — she has quite an appetite!  Drae is still breastfeeding but has also been enjoying homemade baby food by Grandma, Obaachama and yours truly.  I’m sure that the next time Lola visits, she’ll enjoy her Filipino cooking, too!

She is a very curious and social baby.  She gleefully waves good-bye at night and is always entertained by her Kuya Cedro.  Lately she is making attempts at speaking.  We often hear, “bah-bah-bah-bah-bah” or “Pffffffffffffff.”  (Maybe she’s a Francophile like her mama.) 

Before I know it, she’ll be walking, so I’m just trying to savor each moment. (sigh)
