Peace in the Midst of Trouble Part 2

If you have read my previous  post you know how our family is struggling for our newborn's health. I previously worked in a laboratory and had my internship in Philippine Children's Medical Center.  I have seen a lot of sick patient and couldn't forget how much I pitied the sick children I've seen in that hospital.  I now better understand how parents feel when something is wrong with their child. I couldn't bare seeing EJ getting needle pricks that hurts him so bad; but we have to do it for his diagnosis.

Peace In the Midst of Trouble

EJ, our newborn, just visited his cardiologist for cardiac evaluation.  After a month from his birth, we found out that his weight gain is slow compared with other infants of his age.  Doctors calls it "failure to thrive".  We are in search of the reason for his poor weight gain. Our pediatrician considered having him undergone the cardiac evaluation procedure because heart disease can cause a child to use more calories than a normal child does. While waiting in the hospital, I have bought a book with me so I will not be bored while waiting.  I found this verse in the book that I was reading on.  This continually reminded me to be calm.

No Cook Clay (Hardens When Air Dried)

Never thought I can make a beautiful craft out of cornstarch and glue.  It was one boring day so I decided to search for a new project which I and the kids can work on.  Pinterest is the perfect site to look for that.  Upon searching I found this idea.  Making clay using cornstarch and glue as the main ingredient.  After reading the procedures I head on to our kitchen get the cornstarch of course we had glue in our house too and started working.

Another Great Year to Come

Hello everyone.  I know I have been quiet here for some time.  After giving birth I have been so busy with so many things.  I couldn't also count the number of attempts I did to make a blog post but I didn't succeed making one.  Later on in December I had to focus and give more time breastfeeding our newborn so I had to give up internet and blogging.  Instead, if time allows (baby is sleeping) I choose to work on making crafts for our Christmas gifts.  See  the photos of the crafts we did below. I'll be trying to post the tutorials of the crafts soon.  Please give me some more time for it.  The children were so excited of the Season's celebration plus being spoiled recieving gifts from friends and relatives.
