“Hello world!” from, the newest addition to my favourite family, baby Noah Nehemiah Yunon Belasco! Isn’t he precious??? My heart melted the day I saw him for the first time, it was like I was being brought back to the time Kheira was just born. I had forgotten how tiny they are the first few weeks out. He was longer though! 21 inches at birth to be exact. Coming from two towering parents; one a professional basketball player, Nic Belasco and a beauty queen, Mafae Belasco Continue reading

Hi Ninang Aileen!

*’Ninang’ (n.) is Tagalog((Filipino) for Godmother.

Now that we’ve established that – it’s another first for Kheira! #KheiraDelviFirsts She has officially met every one of her Dad’s-dad’s family! Did that make any sense? After the rush of the holidays, we weren’t quite ready to settle down and put our feet up just yet… there was another visitor we were anticipating to see! “Hi Ninang Aileen! It was great to finally meet you!”

Kheira’s Dedication

In this case, we are dedicating my child to Jesus Christ. As a Christian, I chose to do this because I believe that one should know when and what it means to be baptised by the Holy Spirit. I chose to dedicate Kheira to Jesus Christ to show our family, friends and community that my husband and I will be responsible parents taking on to bring Kheira up in the fear the Lord, in faith and teach her how to live life, the best way we can, as a good Christian and servant of the Lord.

Meeting Ninang(Godmother) Chloe

I, for one, am not good at keeping secrets. I’m like a ticking bomb. For the most part to those whom I’m very close with, i.e. my husband. We’ve known each other and have been friends for so long we’ve come to tell each other everything. Even the boring noting of our everyday lives. Especially now that we’re married, I find it hard to keep things from him. So, imagine my surprise when my father-in-law gave me information on the biggest secret from my husband and mother-in-law I had to keep for about 2 months. His only sibling and sister, Chloe, is coming to the Philippines to visit us. It was the secret of the century for me. It was a mission!
