Chloe Alexandra

I married at exactly 27 years old & gave birth at 28…For me, it was just the right time. And my bundle of joy came just at the right moment! Some of you moms would agree with me that pregnancy is not that easy, but at the same time, it’s a wonderful experience. The craving & the morning sickness (though I’m very lucky not to have experienced those!), the back aches, the changes in your tummy, the Braxton hicks..oh! I love those kicks my little one gave me when she was inside my tummy.

But the most beautiful of all was when I finally got to see her! Although my labor pain was really terrible…and in the end, I delivered her via caesarian. But it didn't matter, 'coz what’s more important was that I got to meet her.. and I could really say that my labor was way more painful than with the surgical procedure I went thru, or maybe I was just too excited to see her.

My baby girl was born at last! She’s the most beautiful creature I’ve ever seen. After being given a dose of anesthesia for me not to feel pain & for me to sleep, my doctor was surprised to see me still awake. She let me see my kiddo, even as I was still lying in the operating table…She was such a beautiful sight to see. She was already asleep & was kept warm, I took note of her pinkish cheeks and counted her little fingers & toes. Thank God they were complete, hehe. She’s truly God’s greatest gift to me! I couldn’t hide my tears, I just couldn't believe I was finally seeing her. She was really a sight to behold!

Chloe Alexandra Teves Orteza…my daughter, my life and my love. I’ll always be here for you.

Title Search

This is my very first blog. I actually signed up yesterday but wasn’t able to continue coz I’ve yet to familiarize myself with this ‘blogging thing’. I even had a hard time signing up. And I have not yet edited my settings, layouts, even my profile!

So many things came up with my mind, too. Like what should be my header? Should I name it Cookie’s Web? Cookie the Bookie – but I’m no bookie, Cookie’s Delight? – but it sounded like an icecream, Cookie Monster – but hey, I’m no monster! Hugs and Kisses? - DUH!
Then I came up with Cookies, Skies & Diamonds – from Lucy in the sky with diamonds… but what’s with the diamond thing? I wanted a title that would somehow relate to my personality. Then I thought of Cookie the Dreamer, just like Joseph the dreamer. But I’m no Joseph who could interpret dreams. I’m just someone who loves to daydream and hope it would come true…
Finally I came up with Cookie’s Dreamland. Because I’m really a dreamer. I have so many dreams, some came true but plenty of it did not happen. So I’ll just keep on dreaming…and who knows? I might just get lucky, huh.

Oh crap! Something just popped-up my mind. Cookie's Corner sounds cool to me, too. Coz apart from being a dreamer, I'm realistic, too. And most of my blogs comes from my personal experience..So, Should I use this one? Such a fickle-minded. But that's the privilege of being a girl, you're entitled to change minds in a single snap.

I wanna start blogging - NOW. So I guess I will use Cookie’s Corner. This may be temporary until I can find the word that suits me – or this could be my permanent header…whatever…I just want to start my blog!
