One of my favorite photos

As Napoleon Bonaparte puts it "A picture is worth a thousand words". We all love to keep good memories in our minds and hearts and one concrete way of doing this is by taking a photograph. Looking at old photographs brings back memories of those special milestones in your life. Some may not be so pleasant but I'm sure most of them are those that you would always want to remember.

I like browsing through the pictures saved in my laptop every now and then. The picture below is one of my favorites. This is the first ever picture of my two boys together.
 

My husband left to work in a ship when I was only three months pregnant with little Andoy. The contract was supposed to be for 12 months only but it was extended to 14 months. Andoy was already 10 months old when he and his dad first saw each other. Andoy didn't even hesitate when his dad carried him. He must have thought he was looking at himself in the mirror, haha!

This is one of those priceless vivid memories in my heart and I'm looking forward for more.

@anney: unforgettable moment for the three of us :)

@michi: truly priceless! i wish i could document all my baby's "firsts" :)

@kristeta: inip na inip kami the whole time na on board si hubby. curious kasi kami sa magiging reaction ni andrei pag nakita nya daddy nya for the first time :)

mga sis, i'm wishing time would pass by quickly for the coming days! nov 16 na uwi ni hubby! magkikita na uli sila in person after just seeing each other sa skype for the last 10 months :)

Wow, what a story behind the photo. That's so touching. Maybe it's what they call lukso ng dugo.
Have a great weekend, jenggai!

Icar said...

was really hard not to have hubby by our sides esp during the precious times of our lives-giving birth and all the firsts...but all that matters is the moments spent together to make up for the lost ones...

photos are reminders of the past that will never really come back and you have captured them so nicely!

happy MM!

Nice story to tell. I'm sure it was so hard for the Dad to be away from the son! Precious moment! :)

Visiting late for MM! Hope you don't mind. :)

@MoM from Manila: it was indeed hard without hubby by my side, good thing i have my parents and siblings by my side.

@""rare*jonRez"": yeah, his dad missed a lot of andoy's "firsts". one disadvantage of working out of the country :(
