Happy Father's Day Babykins =)

‘Any man can be a Father but it takes someone special to be a DAD.’

Dan and I have been together for 6 years and 2 months to be exact and I have seen every facet of his personality – son, brother, friend, and husband. People thought of him as distant and mysterious (as I did) when we started dating because he would choose people he would smile and respond to, and even so when he did, he would give one liner statements or answers. As I got to know him better, I saw how loving and generous he is with his family which made me consider the fact that this will be the same way he will be towards me and our future child.

In all our years together, Dan has given me the greatest love that he can. He is always patient with my erratic moods, he indulges me in my shopping habits, he hugs me tight when we talk about our future, and he laughs with me like no one else can. Clearly, I could never ask for a much better husband.

Now that the two of us became three, I admire every bit of the Dad that he is to Zoe. I love how he embraces Zoe at night, how he reads stories to her complete with elaboration, the way he plays with her and makes her laugh, and how he just looks at her with so much love. He may forget some things like the milk dispenser when we go out but he doesn’t forget to say I love you to Zoe. He sometimes spills Zoe’s powdered formula on the floor but he cleans her up and changes her nappy at night. He may spend a lot of time in front of the PC when he gets home but he carries Zoe at night when she cries even if he’s really groggy from sleep. He may raise his eyebrows when I shop a little bit too much for Zoe’s clothes but he beams like the stage father that he is when he sees her in those cute little outfits. He may not be the perfect father but he gets my (and Zoe’s) vote as the BEST DADDY in the world.

Thank you Baby Daddy for being the best person for us. God couldn’t have given me a better husband and Zoe a better Daddy. We love you so very much. Happy Father’s Day!

Father's Day 2011

It's the first time our little family has celebrated Father's Day and so we decided to make a big deal out of it. 

Saturday - We had a family photo shoot session at Mrs. Pixels, thanks to the Deal Grocer voucher I bought. We ended up shelling out 1800 though cus we decided to get extra prints since there were just too many to choose from. The pictures will be given next Saturday and we can't wait to get them.

- We also booked Shakey's El Pueblo for Zoe's 1st birthday in September. There were initial disagreements on the contract but we managed to iron out everything and put them in black and white.

Sunday - Happy Father's Day Danilo Dy II! We had lunch at Bonchon Libis (which wasnt really an ideal lunch venue for me but since Daddy's the king that day, I indulged on his craving) and went to Eastwood Mall after for some coffee.

- The highlight of this day was when Dan bought me a car. It's a green automatic 94 Mitsubishi Lancer GLXI and while it's not the most modern of all cars, I love it to bits! It's the perfect gift, runs well, has nice interiors, plus, it saves me forevermore from daily commute to work! Thank you so much Dan, I love you sooooo much :)

Meet Pickle
- Last stop for the day was at my BIL's house in Cainta where Dan's family were. We didn't get to join them for dinner anymore cus they took too long to plan, plus, we had to get *ahem* my car :) So we just joined them for drinks after.
