Ang weird!

•August 7, 2008 • 1 Comment

Well, last year, pag na-dedelay ako super natutuwa at na-eexcite kami ni hubby dahil baka buntis na ako…

… pero ngayon …

… kinakabahan na ako pag nadedelay ako hahaha!

Don’t get me wrong. Wala naman problema kung biyayaan kami ng panibagong anak. We chose not to use contraceptives (pro life kami hehehe!) because eversince I was a child, I’m so toxic with taking lots of medicine for my asthma and allergy attacks. And if I’ll take on oral contraceptives … we’ll never know kung kakayanin pa ng liver ko ang mga tinitake ko na gamot. My OB introduced a lot of ways on birth control naman na hindi oral. Pero parang kasi hindi ko trip yun dahil ayoko yung mga side effects.

Isa sa reason kaya ayaw ko pa magkaanak kasi I want to make sure na lumaki ng maayos si Janna. Ayoko ma-feel niya at an early age yung selos, yung may kaagaw … gusto ko matutukan siya na matuto ng kailangan niya matutunan. Ayoko nung nag-uumpisa palang siya lumaki eh susundan na agad siya. Another thing is hindi pa kami ganun ka-financially stable. We’re planning to move out at my parents house on January of 2009. Kaya medyo on the tipid side kami ni Jason. We really wanted to feel that we are a family pag bubukod kami … walang makikialam, walang spoiler (yes, they’re starting to spoil my unica hija already), lahat ng gusto namin gawin sa bahay magagawa namin.

Kaya po sana Lord, i-delay mo muna yung 2nd best gift mo sa amin ni Jason. We’ll tell you when we’re ready na. mwah!

Yen’s Question of the Week 26

•August 7, 2008 • 2 Comments

It’s time for another Yen’s QOTW.

1. How is the weather like outside?
:: Mukhang uulan

2. If you’re given an hour to raid a closet of a blogger friend who would you choose? And what would you get?
:: Nikki, she has lots of shoes and bags, all branded …

3. Do any of you know why we sneeze? Where did “God Bless You” originate?
:: All I know is that when we sneeze, our heart stops in zero point something second. So if you’re still alive, you’re so blessed. Yun yung reason why they say “Bless You” when you sneeze kasi buhay ka pa.

4. Which is worse? Finding a bug in your sandwich or a very curly hair in your soup?
:: A very curly hair in my soup.

5. What is the color in your room you are in right now?
:: Yellow

6. If I asked every person that you’ve kissed, they’d say that your kisses are tentative, wild, intense, or sweet?
:: the question is, who would you ask that question hehehe.

7. Which do you prefer, Not eat for lunch or not eat for supper? Why?
:: Not eat for supper. So my digestive system can have more time to digest all what I have eaten earlier.

8. It’s August already, which month so far was the best month ever? Why?
:: May… when I gave birth to my daughter Julianna Alyssa on Mother’s Day.

9. If you could write a book that was guaranteed to be published, what would it be about?
:: Hmmm … maybe I could write something about my mom and me … I can relate to Ruffa and Anabelle Rama because we’re a little like that.

10. If there was an extra hour in the day, what would you spend it doing?
:: Spend time with hubby 🙂 but make sure Janna is sleeping already *wink* *wink*

Bigla ako na-excite

Julianna Alyssa’s Christening 07.26.2008

•July 27, 2008 • 4 Comments

Photos are still with our official photographer Ging Lorenzo. She did a great job kahit super gulo namin eh super patient siya sa amin. Since in two weeks time pa namin ma-rereceive yung photos from her, I’ll give you a sneek peek of Janna’s Christening yesterday. Shots was taken by me and my brother, Sherlloyd.

It’s a day full of love … I was really surprised with Janna. Nginingitian niya lahat … umiiyak pag puno na ang diaper at super antok at gutom na. Pero other than that, she’s one happy baby kaya marami natuwa sa kanya ng sobra.

Thanks to all who came … and to our Baby Janna, welcome to the Christian World.

Enfant, A Couple’s Day Out and Christening Preparations

•July 10, 2008 • 2 Comments

My mom can’t get enough of Enfant… dati cloth diapers lang binibili niya, ngayon pati wardrobe bumibili na. Ang mahal mahal ng damit dun for crying out loud. Maya-maya lang malalakihan din ni Janna yung mga damit. Hay o hay … pero di ko siya masisisi, para sa unang apo, gagawin niya lahat hehehe. I’m planning to buy stuffs din naman from there kaso hindi muna ngayon kasi di pa naman ganun ma-a-appreciate dahil she’s too little pa. Pag may special occasions bibili ako ng dress diyan. Actually, I saw ahat na so pretty na sa tingin ko bagay sa kanya. Pwede gamitin sa malalamig na lugar like sa mall and sa Tagaytay at Baguio.

Well, my mom’s already showing early signs of being a stage lola. The reason why she bought all this stuffs for Baby Janna dahil gusto niya isali sa SM Star Baby. Susme, is it too early for Baby Janna to join such contest? hehehe … I myself wanted my Baby Janna to be Enfant’s Baby of the Month. Kaso si mom sa SM Dept. Store bumibili ng Enfant products, counted pa kaya yun if mag-apply ako sa sjop nila mismo? Tutal, sila naman nagdidistribute ng items sa dept. store di ba? Siguro naman papayag sila. Am I showing early signs of being a stage mom? Hahahaha! Ang bilis ng karma!

Eto pa, mom bought this Baptismal Gown from Purple Candy. It’s on sale kaya she grabbed it agad. It’s so pretty, di ko nga maintindihan bat di namin nakita ito ni Jason last time we went there. Nakabili tuloy kami ng simple white dress from St. Patrick sa Landmark, Trinoma. Maganda din naman pero nung nakita kasi ni mom yung gown, binili na niya. After the ceremony nalang daw suotin ni Baby Janna yung binili namin na dress.

Last Sunday, Jason and I went for a Baby Janna-free day. Siya din naman ang reason kaya kami lumabas nung Sunday kasi on a hunt nga kami ng baptismal gown niya. We went to our parish church first to request a letter of permission para sa christening ni Baby Janna sa Twin Hearts. Kaso kulang naman ang requirements namin kaya wala din kami nakuha, pero mabait naman yung nasa office ng parish church namin, mabilis lang naman daw gawin yun at makukuha naman daw namin agad.

Off we went to Landmark Trinoma, papunta namin sa childrens section … my God lumuwa ang mata ko sa dami ng mga damit. Pero wala pa din kaminakita na size niya except sa St. Patrick. Ilang beses na namin nilagpasan ang St. Patrick eh dun din naman pala kami babagsak hehehe. Binili na din namin yung socks and shoes niya, pati headband … oo headband … para makita nila na babae anak ko hehehe. After nun nagliwaliw na kami sa mall. Naalala ko na anniversary pala namin ni Jason as boyfriend and girlfriend. 9 years na kami magkakilala (7 years na kami nung nagpakasal kami). Nag-celebrate kami sa CPK … would you believe na first time ko kumain dito? And I must agree, masarap pala ang food dun, even ang ice tea. Suggest ko nga kay bunso na dun kami mag-celebrate ng birthday niya in August. At least that time makakasama na si Baby Janna kasi nabinyagan na siya nun. hehehe and she’ll turn 3 months na rin in a few days.

In two weeks, bibinyagan na ang baby ko. Everything’s all set na, documents and full payments nalang. We set a meeting with Ging Lorenzo on July 19. Para ma-discuss na yung mga gagawin at mga gusto namin mangyari sa day ng Christening ni Baby Janna. Na-eexcite na ako, sana madami magawnag shots si Ms. Ging. And I’m praying hindi maging cranky si Baby Janna because of a lot of people carrying her and not to mention the diapers she’s wearing hehehe.
