Helo, hello, hello! Oh yeah, I’m still alive! I’m not sure if you have ever noticed my absence in the blogosphere given that I only have 10 readers. Harharhar! But in case you did, I’m back! Well, sort of! I know that I have apologized so many times for neglecting this blog, but believe me when I tell you that I have a perfectly valid reason behind my absence. To tell you honestly, I was extremely lazy the past couple of months. Hahahahahahaha! I know, I know! But hear me out first, please. This time around, my laziness has a legitimate excuse! I promise I'll make it up to you. For now, allow me to fill you in with some of the latest happenings in the Kolokoy Household.
First, the construction of our own house’s interiors is finally done! We’re just in the last lap of constructing some minor stuff, and the next step is to clean the house before we could fill it up to make it look like a decent nest. I know that I promised to keep you updated with our house’s construction through my Building the Kolokoy Home series, but something happened which prevented me from doing so. For now, allow me to show you a glimpse of our door, and the floor mat that I bought from S&R! Hahahahahaha! And apparently, today is a very special day because my husband decided to buy me my fourth pair of Chuck Taylor! He was feeling kinda mushy, so he decided that he wanted to be matchy matchy with me! :p
This is actually my husband’s first pair. And because he does not want to be alone in his first-time-to-own-a-Chucks moment, he decided to buy another pair for his fellow first timer!
In case you missed it, I’ll give you 5 more seconds to process the last photo. 5… 4… 3… 2… 1… See? I told you I have a valid reason for being so lazy! The Kolokoy Household is growing by 2 feet! =)
My husband and I decided to keep a lot of people in the dark for a lot of reasons. But the main one is because we wanted to wait for this day to come before we finally share how we overcame our rocky journey to parenthood. When we finally saw two lines in the pregnancy kit, we once again decided to keep it a secret for a while until we were 100% sure. When we finally got the confirmation from the doctor, we opted to delay sharing the good news because I had a very scary and quite risky first trimester. I actually wanted to delay it for a couple of weeks more. I just wanted for my baby bump to show before I make the announcement. (But then again, I’ve had this bump, which I claim to be a foodie bump, for years already! Hahahaha!) We only told our families and very few close friends. But my husband felt that it’s about time to let everybody know that we’re having a Baby Kolokoy soon. He reminded me that I had spent Mother’s Day for years feeling sad and hoping that I’d finally get my turn the following year. He told me that today, the first time that I get to celebrate Mother’s Day, is the perfect day for us to make the announcement. For the first time today, we attended the Sunday mass, and I finally got the chance to join the other mothers in getting the final blessings. It felt surreal to get those Happy Mother’s Day messages from those who already know that I am pregnant.
I am currently on my 12th week! And believe it or not, my due date is November 20, just one day shy of my husband’s birthday! Makakalibre pa yata ng handa si Boyet! :p
So please, please, please pray for our growing family! And please bear with my laziness. I promise to make it up to you. But for now, please give Mr. and Mrs. Kolokoy some time to savor being Tatay and Nanay Kolokoy! =)
