The Joy of giving birth to You..







Last October was very exciting yet I felt a bit tense of whats gonna be me when I'll be in labor..many things came into my mind..and yet honey and I are anticipating with so much joy for the gift..a very precious gift from GOD in our marriage.This was taken on the final weeks of waiting...for HJ to arrive.I honestly didnt thought about having another way of giving birth aside from natural or vaginal delivery.I mean it.BUt things sometimes wont happen as what you wanted to be. On the 27th,at 11.15 HJ arrived via CS.We both prayed for a safe and easy delivery.BUt GODs plan is impeccable.Though things didn't happened as we desired, we are still so happy and I have so many things to be grateful for.



my mom-in-law patiently waiting for me..


My dad-in-law was all ready to support me.He was the one who accompany me in the operating room.They(with Honey) agreed to have either one of them.




I am so grateful for these people are very supportive that they don't even eat their breakfast just to wait HJ and prayed for my safe operation.They are outside the nursery room joyfully waiting for HJ..

A surprised celebration!

When weekend comes, I felt so happy and excited because of so many reasons.I can stay home and do the housechores that I enjoy doing. I could have all the time of the days being spent with my hubby, listening and encouraging him while he's doing his time mastery on the BLues guitar piece.(We both love listening to it.).We could also have much time talking about our desires, thoughts for us and for our baby HJ that will soon to be us.Eating meals together which during weekdays we seldom do it together except on dinner.On weekends,I do some "palambing"thing to my hubby to cook meals for us the whole day.hehehe..I always comforted because He'll do it with a smile.And on weekends we usually visits our dear sis and broe in Hat Yai. To mention that my honey will have lots of fun playing with HYzyd(our Nephew-Gen and Joes' son)

Two weeks ago,I got some pains and aches (which is normal)in my pelvic areas,the reason i wasn't able to go to school for a day and deciding not to travel to Hatyai that weekend.My sis-in-law had an invitation for a celebration that weekend, on the 5th,she said its a lovers celebration.Which, honestly it calls my attention.WHy??First,its their first lovers' celebration for after 2 years when they got married.second,the very first time my sis-in-law invited us but she talked to my honey first over the phone, and I was informed second hand.Well, in my mind, nothing so serious about it..my reply was"I will just try to come".

To make the story shorter,they are not really celebrating their Lovers' Anniversary but instead, a surprised Baby Shower.I cant stand the fact that my sis-in-law, her hubby and my honey took the agreement that they will keep the preparation among themselves.Some closed friends where informed the truth about it.

Its truly a surprised to me...a wonderful, meaningful celebration that helps me to anticipate joyfully of the motherhood life, somehow it encouraged me to be more and more excited..

Thanks to you my dear Sis, Bro, Hyzyd, friends..who prayed and have done your part for making the celebartion worthwhile..to my honey whom from the start, encourages, support and loves me...GOd bless us all..

I had my ultrasound last month which it caused me sleepless night thinking whats the gender of our baby.We are so excited the day before it and I kept on staring at the mirror, looking my bulging tummy.talking to my self, Am I carrying a baby boy or baby girl?..sounds funny but its true.My hubby, in his heart felt that we have a baby girl..and he hasn't mistaken on his guess.Af
ter the ultrasound, after seeing our baby kicking and wiggling inside me, my hubby and I had a flashing conversation.we do remember the declaration of Papa Ben when they are here last year. He already had told us that he they will be having a baby girl as their grandchild from us..We believed in it and Papa Ben even gave us the name for a baby girl.What a faith!!
Praised GOD for HYPHZYBAH JAZZYZ T.SARATORIO.We love you baby and we are so happy to have you.

..Becoming A Better DAD, Seven Ways Your Partner Can Help

The following list of Seven Things Women Can Do to Get Fathers More Involved was excerpted from the book Throwaway Dads, by Ross D. Parke and Armin A. Brott.

1. Look at things from your partner's perspective
"Women usually measure what their husbands do against what they do," says researcher Jay Belsky. Using this scale, most men fail miserably. But men tend to "measure their domestic contributions against what their fathers did," adds Belsky, "and sometimes even against what their male friends and co-workers are doing." By this standard, many husbands feel pretty satisfied with themselves and their contributions around the house.

2. Adjust your standards
Let's face it, men and women often have very different standards. Adjusting yours to his level doesn't mean that the kids will be wearing the same clothes every day. Also, there are many different ways to change diapers, play, teach, and entertain children. Yours isn't always right.

3. Treat men as partners, not as helpers
Just as men need to rethink their family roles as "assistants" to mothers, women need to change their ideas about what's reasonable to expect from their partners. Asking your partner for help only reinforces the view that men have little direct responsibility for the care and management of children. Instead, ask him to do his share.

4. Praise your partner
As a group, men generally dislike doing things that make them feel incompetent. At the same time, most men love compliments. Tell him what a great job he's doing, and ask him to do the same thing again — even if it's not exactly the way that you would have done it.

5. Don't be a gatekeeper
Even if you know how to stop the baby from crying, let your partner try to figure it out for himself before jumping in. Men and women have different approaches to the same task, and fathers need the confidence that only comes with practice.

6. Recognize that you can't do it all
Let your spouse or partner know that you have limits. Increasing his awareness that you simply can't do everything will go a long way to bringing men into action on the home front.

7. Redefine work
When dividing up responsibilities, many couples have trouble defining what exactly the term "work" means. In many families, for example, couples err by neglecting to give parenting the same weight as other domestic chores. Switch responsibilities once in a while — let him make dinner while you do some wrestling. This kind of trading can change your understanding of what both of you contribute. You and your partner can devise your own ways of assigning responsibilities.

THankful Thursday MEME




Blessed is the man who trusts in the LORD, And whose hope is the LORD. For he shall be like a tree planted by the waters, Which spreads out its roots by the river, And will not fear when heat comes; But its leaf will be green, And will not be anxious in the year of drought, Nor will cease from yielding fruit. “The heart is deceitful above all things, And desperately wicked; Who can know it? I, the LORD, search the heart, I test the mind, Even to give every man according to his ways, According to the fruit of his doings. (Jeremiah 17:7-10 NKJV)

My Happy Pregnancy... My Happy Birthday






My birthday seems not to be the first priority to me now since I am expecting, My hubby, week before ask me where I would like to spend the day since the following day after my birthday is holiday.We actually ask GOD to give us enough time to go and stay in one of the prestegious hotel here in Songklah near the Beach with a pool where we can relax and refreshed.BUt we never plan, Its GODs duty.

Early in the morning of Tuesday, I woke up at 2 to pee.After, I cant get my eyes back to sleep so I check my blog and check some others 'til I viewed my SILs' writings for me.I coudn't help my eyes from shedding tears when I read her birthday tribute for me..discovered that shes' been constantly and faithfully been praying for me and for my honey(her broe)through thick and thin that much that I can ever imagine.Though she is, but because shes the type of women that never speaks out more than I do. I stood still, folding my hands in prayers.In teary eyes and grateful heart, I Thank and praise GOD for this wonderful person.My loving honey, noticed me cryin' so he hugged and kissed me as he prayed for me.

Just when I came back from school in the afternoon I used to take some naps at 4.30, before my honey arrived home and prepare dinner for us.To my surprised, my SIL and her family came and brought pizzaz.








My hubby have his own surprised for me as well, the long days of craving..at last its here in front of me..LOL..

2. It's Thursday, thank God for this wonderful day.I've been asking God to just let me relax for the whole week of teaching.and that HE will let me just do my work joyfully without thinking of the day passes by.Since for the past few weeks i felt so sleepy and exhausted in the afternoon even after lunch time.I really wanted to go home, taking a nap on my table wont be comfy for me now.
I was also able to cut few hours on my extra classes in the afternoon.He really strengthens me everyday as always.

3. I thank GOD for my healthy and normal pregnancy and baby. I am now on my seventh month.I praised and thank Him for taking care of me my baby and my honey faithfully.I thank God that He is there to protect me and my family for the virus that's been affecting people lately.

Joy of being preggy

..its been a while since the last time I dropped my thoughts in here..my sister-in-law pushing me to post new ones...I’ve spent all day trying to wrap my head around a story to tell...(not mentioning i had much these days)

..should i say now i'm experiencing the joy of being Pregnant..cuz by GOD's mighty grace, I really am.A frequent trips to toillet any time of the day,(especially early morning)a feeling of hungryness always,(that i have to wake my husband up in the middle of the night to cook something for me)dizziness, tiredness most of the time,(not to mention how i slept over my table at school every after my meals)means a lot to me and for my husband who have been from the start, gives out all his support for me and our baby..but i'm quite blessed to say i'm not always throwing ups as what most every pregnant woman of their first 2 months have. i still enjoy the food that my husband Ben prepared..

i looked upon the side of the pregnant glow. The lustrous hair. And all of the other benefits that can come with carrying a baby..I’m thrilled about bringing a baby into the world, and I know that I am blessed to be able to procreate.Thanks GOD for our baby...our little angel...
