We are in the process of trying to get Luke dual citizenship. Because I am American and my husband is Filipino, we are qualified for it. That doesn’t mean they are required to hand it over to us. We’ve spent alot of time praying and asking God to allow us to get it. The process is we fill out forms, send in papers and wait for them to contact us from Manila letting us know when our appointment is. After that we have to book tickets RIGHT AWAY once we know the appointment date and you know how it is when you book tickets on the spot..you usually don’t get good prices. Plus once we get up there we have to pay for hotel, food and transportation. It cost ALOT.
My baby boy is ONE! It feels so unreal. I honestly couldn’t even write about it till now because I have a few words but really i’m just in awe of how fast time went by.
Sunday Luke and I went with Ryan to hear him preach at a church. It was like an hour away but thankfully Luke slept the whole way!! As soo. As we got there some boys were playing basketball he went right over and started “trying” to talk to all of them. They all were so cute cause they shared their ball with Luke. This kid loves basketballs!Ryan and I woke up yesterday and realized that we only had 4 days left before he turns one so we decided we wanted to make sure we made these last 4 days really special!! I can’t believe my baby boy turns ONE. He’s walking everywhere!! Which is nice cause he’s so heavy and my little body can’t carry him too long anymore! I’m so sad yet so excited at the same time!!! I love watching this kid grow!! Plus i finally figured out a theme for his birthday!!🙌🏻 Yesterday we got up early and went down near the market to get decorations for his birthday-cause they’re way cheaper down there than the mall. He has no idea whats coming😀 he loved the party shop though!!
Then we took him to the mall to see Jollibee cause I mean it doesn’t get more special than that for him ha!🙈 he loves JOLLIBEE so much. Everyone says he’s definitely filipino cause he walks right past Ronald McDonald and straight to Jollibee. It was so cute cause he was in his stroller and whenever we would walk by people he’d wave and smile like he knew them💙
This year has been the BEST!!
One of the questions people have been asking me since I shared about going Plant Based is “Where do I start?” I remember how frustrated I was when I would read other peoples stories and read through the whole post about how it changed their life but never really telling me where I should start!
I bawled my eyes out before church last night. I started thinking about my baby boy turning 1 in just a few weeks. I walked into the bathroom to make sure my makeup wasn’t smeared. When I looked in the mirror. I started laughing at myself- I started thinking “WHO ARE YOU?”
A couple of years ago I got a really bad AMOEBA. I was in the hospital twice- for a total of two weeks. I was the sickest I had ever been. I got it from drinking tap water at a restaurant. Which was CRAZY to me because after so many years of living here and drinking water from so many places – I end up getting it from a nice restaurant.
Luke is 1 month away from being A YEAR OLD!!! What?!! How?
Hey Guys! Heads up…this is a long post:) + I feel like my words are all over the place. Oh well. Enjoy!
If you follow me on my Instagram or Youtube Channel you already know that for almost 2 months now my husband and I have been eating Plant Based.
If we had to choose which year has been the BEST..you all know we’d choose 2018. That’s when God chose to give us Luke. Ryan and I can’t even remember life before Luke haha! The other day Ryan had to go to a PNP Bible Study and he said the whole time he kept thinking about Luke. That’s how it is for us. I sometimes think “I just need a few hours without Luke to get stuff done, then when he’s not around I’m thinking WHAT IN THE WORLD DO I DO?”
Before Luke was born I did alot of praying, reading and seeking counsel. I wanted to know about natural health in raising my child. I did not want to raise him on medicine, and doctors visits.
