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!”

Hello to the New Year


After slacking on my blog for a week, the New Year has come and gone, I’ve finally settled and is ready to write my first entry of the year.

For this new year’s resolution ours isn’t the same as most people with, “new year, new me” or “new year, new beginnings”. Ours is simply, new year and another one to continue and enjoy our journey… as new parents! Still considering ourselves new parents since our unica hija is only 6 and a half (to this day) months old.

My First Christmas

Here it is! My Christmas post! Hope everyone had  great holiday, because I know we did! It’s Kheira’s very first Christmas


After driving around from family to family, countless beso’s (a common Filipino greeting, a cheek-to-cheek kiss usually made once on the right cheek), giving and receiving gifts; Kheira’s first Christmas was a success!! It was definitely hectic because – let’s face it – having a baby adds about one to two more hours of getting ready to go (practically) anywhere. 

Christmas bring families together! And I love how Facebook Memories bring up photos you have (probably forgotten) from years ago and make you remember how many pounds lighter and younger looking you were years ago. Ha! Here’s a quick glance of my lil’ family from four years ago;

Happy Belly Happy Baby!

Who started eating solids?? Kheira started eating solids!!

This is a #latepost, but… Whooo! A major milestone was accomplished last December 2, 2015 by our darling angel. Before the year ended our little Kheira has experienced her first time eating! And she was such a pro at it too! For a first timer, she knew exactly what to do when that spoon was right in front of her – its time to open that little mouth and “chew”. Not even a joke, it’s like she read a book on how to eat. Proud mommy and daddy over here!

I love thanksgiving just because it allows people to be reminded of the many things they should be thankful for despite at all. Me, personally, I thank God for every day that I get to open my eyes, live another day and be able to spend time with my family. That alone, I am very thankful for.♥  Plus, its a great way to start my day!

So, Happy Thanksgiving to all!! Off to the beach we go! #LaiyaCocoGrove

Last Friday, October 16, 2015, I was invited to the grand opening launch of the Learning Plus+ bookstore. This is more than just your typical bookstore with pens and stationaries. They are a bookstore for the TMA Homeschooling program. This store was conceptualized and operated by homeschoolers!

And, YES to you all wondering if I’m considering homeschooling my lil’ one 🙂 Actually more than considering, We, as a family, is already gearing up as we join the community of homeschoolers. Especially now, with the Learning Plus+ bookstore, we have everything that we would need to equip Kheira as she goes through this journey with us. I am more than excited! This place is perfect for all your homeschooling needs!

They even have U.S Curriculums that would be good, especially for us, incase (through the years) we would go and move back to the U.S – just in case! Having a bilingual household it is imperative that Kheira learns Tagalog. And what better way to learn than from fun story books??



Fun way of Learning!


Molding kids to be more creative

Im not the only who thinks FAR ahead as schooling for my young one, right? Don’t get me wrong, I know Kheira is only three (3) months (almost four) but the mind tends to wonder. She’s growing so fast and, as much as I don’t want her to, she won’t be a baby forever (don’t we all wish the same?).  And most of these thoughts are about her education.

The TMA Homeschooling and Learning Plus+ has made it easy for homeschooling families to come together and achieve the goal for education!

If we built a school from the ground up based on how children learn best, we would build a home.

– Dr. Debra Bell

I believe in this saying of Dr. Debra Bell. Learning doesn’t necessarily have to be in a school. Children learn and grow from where the heart is, our home
