All About Jake

Posted on: June 27, 2005


~ is 1 year and 3.5 months (already?)
~ likes hotdog, spam, bread, chips, ice cream, corned beef, banana among others (hello junk food!)
~ can finish a bowl of porridge in one meal (imagine the size of a Chowking bowl)
~ has 1 tooth out and several other pearlies ready to erupt (why is it taking forever???)
~ is not afraid to take his medicine and vitamins (he started out liking it, then hating it and back to liking it)
~ hates tissue or table napkin (he would violently squirm, wriggle and cover his face when the object gets within a foot away from him)
~ is more confident to walk around by himself now (never mastered the art of crawling. he seemed to have skipped the crawling stage)
~ carries one object on each hand when he walks (these objects act as his weights and keep him balanced)
~ loves to walk us down the garage on our way to school/office
~ knows how to poop when you prop him on the adult toilet seat (we didn’t have to buy potty trainers, yey!)
~ doesn’t like to sit/stand still in his tub when bathing (I end up getting soapy and wet before he does. hehe. over ba?)
~ doesn’t like to sit on his stroller
~ listens to classical and mellow music
~ dances to rap and fast tunes
~ likes to watch Elmo, Sesame Street, and Little Bill
~ owns very few clothes (I don’t buy him much thinking that he will soon outgrow them) BUT
~ kiddie cabinet bursts with Oshkosh, Spin, Baby Guess clothes and Nike shoes mostly given by Tita Erlinda and cousin Michael (See? I didn’t have to buy, did I? Thanks Linds and Michael! Keep ’em coming. Hahaha!)
~ says Pa-PAH loudly when he sees Jerry (yup, I guess that’s his first word)
~ plays with his brothers’ cars and says: “Weee-weee…”
~ wears size XL Pampers
~ drinks 1.2-1.5 liters of NAN2 milk/day (yeah even if he now has a complete solid diet)
~ sleeps straight through the night (to Jerry’s delight! heeeheehee)
~ wakes up earliest at 430 am or latest at 700 am
~ is 22 pounds (20 pounds more than his birth weight)
~ loves playing with the cellphone, palm pilot, computer keyboard, digital camera and the steering wheel (he’s turning into a technogeek, like me)
~ is a bundle of energy (he rivals the energizer bunny)

And I look forward to seeing him in the morning when he wakes up and at night before he sleeps.

Jake’s chinese name (given by A-ma) is “Ty Eng Hiong” and according to A-Ma it means Hero! But how can Baby Jake be a Hero? Let me count the ways…1.Jake saves me from feeling tired when I get home by shouting Pa-pah with gusto! 2. Jake keeps Mama happy by just flashing his “1-tooth” smile! 3.Jake tries his best to help Matts & Kyle pull their trolley bags…there’s a lot more that Baby Jake can do! πŸ˜‰

he is so adorable! how cute!

hehe, ang cute ni Jake. I love spam too!

Sounds like Jake is a well-rounded baby. I like to listen to classical and mellow music and yet dance to rap music. Haha. Jerry: he sounds like a super-baby from what you described haha.

wow! great journal update for jake!

aw, how cute!!! sarap talaga pag may baby sa house πŸ™‚

Jake’s resume’ or bio-data is not only long but impressive as well. Talo pa niya ang mga applicants ng call centers, the only thriving industry under PGMA.

Ano kaya after college, baka aabut na ng one ream ang kanyang life story? Well, I marvel at the way his Mom keeps tab of Jake’s day-to-day developments–faithfully keeping his anecdotal records. She must be a hands-on Mama. How far she could sustain this? Let’s see. πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

ahhh…he does look like a precocious little one!

ang sarap kurutin ng arms ni jake. kakagigil. πŸ™‚

just like jake, i like bananas too! cutey, cute talaga ni jake! pakurot!

It amazes me no end everytime I see Jake and his funny antics. I see how God works in our lives just by looking at Jake, our former 2-pounder baby. Hehehe.

Thanks. I’m beginning to worry he’s being exposed to salt and other food preservatives early in life. Ngi.


He is showing a lot of talent. I forgot to say he loves singing too. When he cries, his voice has a natural tremolo to it. Our Jake could very well be the next Pavarotti! Nyahahah!

A great way to make use of the blog no? πŸ™‚

Ay sinabi mo! I value my free days now because these are the only times I get to play with him for as long as I want.

I shall sustain this, don’t worry. My mind has a digital recorder of all of Jake’s tricks. Have blog, will keep posting about Jake. πŸ˜€

Oh he does look like he is gifted. I sound smug na ba? Hehe:)

Sarap din kagatin. Hahaha!

Ay oo nga. He particularly likes lakatan. :)Does Matilda like lakatan too? πŸ˜€

Hindi naman nagse-selos ang 2 ninyong malaking baby? πŸ™‚ (Matt and Kylie)

Hindi naman. I have a sick sense of humor nga coz I keep teasing the 2 elder boys if ok lang na Jake is the cutest among them. Okay lang daw. Hahaha!

Pakurot nga! πŸ™‚

Dahan-dahan lang ha. hehehehe…
