the Cacing Diaries #12

5 month birthday special

Another month, another “birthday”!

Cacing turned 5 months old today so this is her special birthday post.

It’s getting easier catching her smile these days. She loves to talk – we still can’t figure out anything that she is saying – but her “speaking” spiels are getting more frequent and longer.

She too is getting stronger. She can almost sit on her own. Of course, we have to support her all the time. Among her favorite plays is dancing in place which is done by carrying her upright and on her toes. We could not get enough of her giggles.

We are now counting the days that she can eat some solid food. That will be in one month. It will come soon enough.

Enjoy her new pics!

The red hat, a gift from my sister, is too big for her but the wide brim frames her face beautifully.

It is the same red bonnet as the previous picture. This is actually how it appears frontside.

Getting her steady for our helper to fix her hair is an ordeal but her long hair is just begging for it. That’s a bunch of santan flowers behind her left ear.

She just had her mid-afternoon bath when her hair was fashioned into a takyan or sipa (a native football made of feathers).

Our helper bought her this new pair of butterfly hairclips.

Cacing loves the texture of our chair. She likes running her hand feeling the furriness of the upholstery.

The pair of sunglasses is a gift from my sister. Cacing wears it with aplomb.

She’s about to attend her first birthday party when we took this picture. Getting her shades up her forehead makes her look glam.

We prefer that she wears sleeveless or strap dresses as they are appropriate for Cebu’s hot and humid weather.

Farl, seeing these pictures, another thing that I do realize about, ... is that she will develop an early and nice interest for photography!
I'm so sure!
