Can you imagine me smiling from ear to ear and wiping tears off my eyes while putting together these collages? Yaikes. Nanay na nanay lang ang peg. Someday, when Dawn & Rain are teenagers, they’ll read these stuff and think their mom is being overly cheesy! Sorry, kids.
But how can I look at these pictures and not be cheesy and so overwhelmed with joy? Di nga? How?
Since last month, the girls have been learning to roll over and explore every corner of our bed even in their sleep. Lots of bed circus happening around here these days; my husband and I would wake up in the morning with their tiny arms and legs on our faces. That’s 2 sets of arms and legs ha, mind you.
We’re seeing a lot of personality even more now too. Dawn is obviously the more funny twin, while Rain is the more articulate one. The usual scenario is, Rain babytalks, and Dawn laughs. Or Rain smiles, and Dawn makes faces. They’ve also started interacting a lot more now. Sometimes we would catch them smiling at each other like they have secrets. It drives us nuts.
You know what’s really cool? Looking back and seeing how different this April was from last year’s. Last year I was dealing with morning sickness and getting used to pregnancy and sleeping a lot.
One year later.. and here we are. A-ma-zing.

A month wouldn’t pass without quality time with loved ones and friends. April 2013 highlights two sets of cousins visiting from Australia, both from Bud’s side and mine—it was lovely catching up with Kuya Mitch and Ate Dots, and Jason and Neil. Joni & Mae spent time with the girls for the first time too, and I wonder when I will see them again *cough*. Ninong Dave and Ninang Nory, our disciplers, celebrated their birthdays. We spent a lot of time with our families in Caloocan and Las Pinas. And then there was our godson Ziki’s birthday celebration, a book party that my girlfriend Normi lovingly DIY-ed.
What a beautiful month April was, and now, May is about to end too! Funny when you start to think that this one month was the best month ever, and then the following month becomes even better. You know?
