Cyler’s 11th Month Celebration

April 28, 2012, our last monthly birthday celebration for him. We wanted to gave him a simple but memorable celebration. We are in frugal mode at this time coz we are saving the best for Cyler’s first-ever-birthday-party. OMG! Did I say first birthday party?! I can’t believe he is turning one next month!

Lemme share our mini-celebration for our little boy. Last saturday, we went to Trinoma Mall (as usual), to celebrate our little boy’s 11th month. I told Cj that I wanna go to Greenbelt coz I want to attend the mass there at 6pm but he said “Wag na mainit ngayon” at the back of my mind I said “Pag sa ibang mall ba kami nagpunta lalamig ang panahon?”. Hay.

Anyhoo, here’s Cyler while on our way to the mall.

He prefers to stand when he's inside the car coz he want's to see whats outside.

But he used to sit down when he’s tired already.

Wearing his cute mickey mouse neck support

It's like Mickey's hand supporting Cyler's neck. sweet!

Anyhoo, when we arrived at the Mall we went straight at Tokyo Tokyo ( Para daw rice-all-you can and so japanice. #MasabiLang), since madami na kaming gutom.

We ordered the following:

Beef misono and Pork Tonkatsu

Shrimp and Veggies Tempura

California Maki from Tokyo Tokyo


It's Cyler (who's so busy watching Charlie and the Numbers on my phone), me, my CIL Jus, my sister Isang, and of course my loveydududz Cj.

After the sumptuous merienda, yes merienda pa lang yan. Hehe We went to Timezone for a carousel ride. We want Cyler to be able to experience the carousel ride for the first time. The place was a bit hot and crowded kaya naman nairita agad ang bebe namin. The hot weather affects his mood too and so he is not on the mood to ride on the carousel but I insisted. Because I don’t want that moment to pass by, I want it to be memorable.

First Carousel ride!

He is so relaxed with Mommy.

He was just thumb sucking the whole time.

After the carousel ride, we braved all the Boutiques to look for Cyler’s outfit for his first birthday.

He prefers to walk most of the time, two thumbs up for that Cyler!

Lakas lang maka-model diba, kung maka-pose wagas! =p

And because of that super model pose, here’s my kikay outfit details (anong konek? wala gusto ko lang isingit! Hehe).

Skin tone pants from The Ramp, Sandals from Alberto and Top from Charlie, available at SM 😛

I guess it was a fun, fun celebration for Cyler. I can see it in his face.

It's good to see him having so much fun!

We forgot to buy the most important thing- cake! So we just bought the cake the day after the celebration, we bought it to the nearest bakeshop in our place. It’s better than never, riiight?

Here’s Cyler together with Mommy and Daddy while blowing his cake.

Happy 11th Month, sweetie! We love you so muchooo!

P.S. What’s next?!…Cyler’s 1st Birthday Party! I’m so eggcited and I just can’t hide it! Wait for my post about the theme, diys, details and many more! 🙂


Progress Report: Cyler At Eleven Months

Last April 28, we celebrated Cyler’s 11th monthsary. I feel glad and sad at the same time, glad cause Cyler was able to accomplished so many things at this stage of his life, sad because of the fact that he is about to enter the world of Tots or Toddler soooon. I can’t imagine how time flies, it seems like a blink of an eye, as in! Last night, I’m just staring at him while he’s sleeping, and I was like grabe ang laki na ng anak ko (with matching teary eye), tapos bigla niya kong nasipa sa mukha! PAK! Sira ang moment ko! Hehe  Cyler is looking more like a little boy each day and acts like a little boy.

Anyhoo, here’s Cyler progress report :

Early Literacy/Language Development:

  • He can carry the books and turn the book pages on his own.
  • Points at picture with one finger and sometimes put books on his mouth. Hehe
  • Narrates while reading the book, sometimes he laugh at the picture.
  • Babbles with inflection
  • He can say “No” when he doesn’t want something. He shows it by simple gestures, shaking his head.


  • He likes climbing at the headboard (Sometimes, ginagawa niya kaming ladder ng Daddy niya. 😀 ).
  • Starting to walk with assistance.
  • Stands momentarily without support.
  • He can easily imitates gestures
  • Can hold his feeding bottle alone, finally!


  • He prefers veggies than fruits, he likes spinach, broccoli and squash.
  • He likes drinking more water now, before we need to force him before he drinks it.
  • He prefer to eat than to drink milk.
  • Starting to become a picky eater, but good thing he likes veggies(Wag lang sana mag-mana sa Daddy niya,hindi kumakain ng gulay, My gulay! *Tumbling*).

I’m very happy with all his achievements at this stage and looking forward for his more milestones. Keep it up sweetie, Mommy and Daddy is so proud of you! We love you!

My source of strength.

Meet Cyrus Schuyler a.k.a Cyler

This month my son is already 10 months, and I’m glad that at this stage he is very active and enthusiastic in learning things. Like every family out there we also celebrate Cyler’s monthsary every month. It’s good to see him learning and growing so fast, and it makes us a proud parent. Cyler never fails to make us smile and I want to thank God for giving us the most precious gift that anyone could ever had. Oh I’m starting to weep now.. I’m such a drama queen, really! I am more iyakin than Cyler! Hehe

Btw, here’s Cyler’s milestones now:

He can say “Ma-Ma” for Mommy

And “Da-da” for Daddy

He even say “Tata” for Tita

And “A-mah” for Sama(come), his lola taught him to say Sama.

He likes throwing stuff out of the playpen.

He is so eager to learn how to walk, actually I let him practice walking everyday at the house or in our veranda.

He knows how to open the pages of his book on his own and it’s accompanied by narration (pretending he can read already). Hihi

His teeth are almost complete and molars are starting to peek out on his gums (it gives him a hard time to sleep at night, but good thing he doesn’t experience any fever).

He is starting to bite everything even Mommy and Daddy’s arms (sob.. but that’s totally fine sweetie).

Here’s Cyler’s 10th month celebration.

P.S. Mommy and Daddy will always be here for you in every step of your life! We love you so muchooo Cyler!
