Yep. She has started talking a day or two perhaps. Yesterday when I got home from the Office, she was babbling "bababa" and "papapa" and sounds to that effect. Tomorrow, she will turn five months old.
While I would always brag to her Mom that she can say the word "papa" and not "mama' for the longest time now it is the smile of Dax that never fails to amaze and brings happiness to me.
It never fails that she will return the smile always and I would just melt everytime she gives me that million dollar smile.
Lately though I think she lost some weight due to lack of sleep. Her Ate Bob usually makes a lot of noise that's why she sleeps like a chicken they say. Eyebags have been forming at the lower portion of her eyes and she would give you that droopy look. Last weekend, they visited her pediatrician and she was given new sets of vitamins. I told her p.a. to switch on the aircon during afternoon siesta so that she could get a good sleep. Good thing that for the last two days, she could sleep an hour or two in the morning as well as in the afternoon as well. I hope that she would get back her previous weight.

As the days passed by, dax is continually turning and transforming to become a swan. When she was a week old, she was a picture of a crumpled little human being. She had like a crow's feet all over her body and it seemed that she has not eaten the entire time she was inside her Mom's womb. Nonetheless, I was very ecstatic and was smiling way too over for a new daddy. Well, the fact that I wasnt able to see Bob when she was whisked out of the delivery room somehow compensates the feeling. That very moment, how I wish I was with someone to share my happiness.
Then after some time, she gained weight, started to cry and learned how to roll over. I was not there to see her first roll over but I was able to captured the second one. She was a little bit chubby this time maybe this was three months after. I cropped the picture so I could not remember the date anymore.
She already shed off that dead skin and has been sporting her new fair and flawless skin. Yes, fair skin unlike mine and Bob's. She still has the white spot just below her nose though. Her Mom and her assistant has been consistently pricking it from time to time but it keeps on coming back. Replenishing once the white pus looking thing is extracted. She would normally go to sleep after the pricking session and they are worried it is affecting her. So, for a while until now I think they stopped pricking it. Everytime she gives me a very sincere smile when I go home from the Office the white spot would show. It's like a glow in the dark according to her Mom.

2010 will be different for me I know. Looking back to the year that has just folded, I have more than enough to be thankful for. There's Dax and there's Yga. Not to mention Bob who day by day amazes me and never stop to entertain me.
The year that passed saw a lot of things and milestones in my life. What compensates I guess for the lost time in the blogosphere is the fact that every free time has been a quality time with my family. Now, I am trying to justify why for the longest time I failed to visit my blog which I used to do.
For some reasons, the moment I'm itching to write anyting, it would dawn on me that I am not in a bad mood or I am not lonely at all then why should I write. It's terribly wrong. I guess it is because for the longest time also I have programmed my mind that I can write well only if I am depressed or I am in a situation where I cannot talk to others about it.
This year, I'm proving it to myself that lonely, happy or what ever feelings I'm into, I will write in my blog and post some pictures.
Well, I admit that the year that passed deserved a written word. Especially since a lot of milestones happened.
Dax was born at 1:16 PM on August 27, 2009 at Our Lady of Lourdes Hospital. The first time I saw her I was ecstatic and could not contain the happiness. I texted all of my close friends telling them that I have a new baby. She was covered with white subtances and very frail looking and her skin are crumpled like that of a paper. I was a bit worried too because of the white spot just below her nose.
I have to go.
