Andi Eigenmann's Island Life and 'Being in the Moment' Makes Her Happy!It looks like Andi is on the path to being her old mermaid-mama self.by Rachel Perez .
Just a few weeks after Andi Eigenmann gave birth to her second daughter, Lilo, on July 23, 2019, she and her family are back in their island home paradise in Siargao, Surigao del Norte, Mindanao.
Happy first month, Lilo!
Lilo just celebrated her first month of life lounging on the beach, “enjoying the fresh breeze and sunny weather,” Andi wrote on Instagram. The mom of two has been sending good vibes on the Internet by sharing adorable photos of her beautiful and happy baby girl.ADVERTISEMENT - CONTINUE READING BELOW
Baby Lilo also seems to be cooperating, allowing her mom to catch up on much-needed sleep. “Our little Lilo, for the first time last night, slept for six hours straight, AND put herself to sleep!” the mom of two exclaimed. “How fast time flies. But I have no complaints there! Sana always,” Andi added.ADVERTISEMENT - CONTINUE READING BELOW
Their two-story island home is taking shape!
The part-time actress, surfer mom, and full-time holistic living island mama also posted a progress update on their spacious two-story home. Andi first shared a peek of its beginnings in February 2019, calling it their “dream house,” and its construction has come a long way since.ADVERTISEMENT - CONTINUE READING BELOW
The mom of two shared in June that she had kids in mind when she and Philmar were planning their island home. “I wanted a play area and Ellie to have the type of room she wants so that she’d love being there more,” Andi shared with Pep.ph.ADVERTISEMENT - CONTINUE READING BELOW
Ellie is making new friends!
Philmar wrote that he’s happy Ate Ellie gets to come home with them. Since Andi moved to Baler and then now to Siargao, Ellie has been shuttling from Siargao to Manila. Now, the 7-year-old has settled in Siargao nicely, making friends and “having plans of her own,” according to Andi. She admits it scares her a bit, but knows that this is part of growing up.ADVERTISEMENT - CONTINUE READING BELOW
“As a parent, I know I have no right to demand that she stay by my side for my comfort’s sake. It’s my job to accept it and let her grow. Besides, it is more than enough consolation to witness her grow into such a wonderful human, and I am just in awe,” she wrote.ADVERTISEMENT - CONTINUE READING BELOW
Being in the moment keeps Andi happy.
A month after giving birth, Andi already got to swim with Ellie at the beach, and is back to doing her skincare routine. She also shared progress on her four-week postpartum body, which she has been documenting since Day 1. Andi is also motivated to keep her health recovery on track after noticing how fresh she looked when she was still preggo.ADVERTISEMENT - CONTINUE READING BELOW
“During my pregnancy, I couldn’t wait to give birth and now, soon after, I already miss it,” Andi admitted. “These are one of the things I talk about that I seem to be failing to do the past weeks — being in the moment and enjoying what is there,” she wrote. “Realising this has been so helpful in terms of keeping my mind and soul happy,” the mom of two added.ADVERTISEMENT - CONTINUE READING BELOW
