|receiving his award for being top in his Nursery class|

So you thought that Mommy’s blog would be all about Nina… well think again! I can’t let your let your 4th birthday go by without documenting it my usual mushy way so indulge me a little okay?
It’s hard to believe how fast time flies and how quickly you are growing. You used to be my baby but now you start to complain whenever I call you my baby. Come to think of it, when it comes to Nina, you show us that you really are a big boy now. We are so proud of how well you look out for your sister. You’re doing a mighty fine job in being a Kuya. Whenever I see how you attentive you are and how concerned you are for Nina’s welfare, I always have this great sense of pride blowing up in me. Many times I’m tempted to point out what you do to other people and tell everyone else that you’re my son. Thank you, for making us proud, for assuring us that you will always be there for your sister. Just the other night, I saw you wake up in the middle of the night and place a blanket on your sleeping sister – now else in the world can I find a 4 year old doing that?!
We are also happy that you’re slowly learning to be independent by taking a bath without the help of yaya, or by brushing your teeth, drinking milk from a glass, and lately eating by yourself. I also love the fact that you no longer have “accidents” in the evenings (Tipid na kami ni Daddy sa pag-bili ng diaper).
This year, you showed Dad and Mom how active you can be but at the same time, you also showed us how obedient you can be at the same time. I know I scold you a lot of times but it’s only because I want you to be safe especially since at this age, you still tend to cry whenever you get hurt or get into an accident. You also did very well in school this year! You made it to the top of your Nursery class and you didn’t give mom a hard time whenever study time came. Congratulations, babe! I’m amazed at how quickly you learn things (especially when you put your heart to it) although at times, I have to admit that I do get frustrated especially when you forget your lessons and would rather play than study.
This year, you had a lot of favorites: the Disney Cars characters (particularly Lightning McQueen – that’s you and Mater is Daddy’s character). You’ve also been addicted to Angry birds (oh how you can play that game so well that you sometimes get more 3-stars than mom!). You also like Thomas the Train, Kung Fu Panda (and you do a mean kungfu panda dance) but over everything else, you still love your Elephants! And your favorite color this year is Red (actually it has been since you were small) but you love it now, more than ever to the point that your favorite bird in the Angry Birds game (on the ipod) is the red one.
When school opens this year, you’ll be going to a big school – Miriam. It’s the same school of Ate Chawie and now, Kuya Migs will be going there as well together with Ate Abby. It’ll be a big change for you but Dad and I decided to enroll you there so you would learn to be more independent and less clingy to mom. I just know you’ll like it there.
So on this, your 4th year… dad and I just wish that you would continue being as loving and as sweet as you are right now. Stay as obedient as you are but please try to cry less often, okay? Remember that Daddy, Nina and I love you a lot and that we will always be here for you. Happy birthday, honey! We love you very very much.
