Celebrating 3 Years of Marriage

Me and hubby celebrated our 3rd year anniversary last December 28. We had a lunch date at Golden Brown Restaurant. He ordered kinilaw while I ordered lechon kawali (pork belly deep fried).

We had a great time together. Time travels very fast that I can't believe it's been three years already since we exchange our "I do ". The very precious gift that we receive from Him is Keona. She is a precious gift from God.

Three magic years was not all bed of roses for us. There were a lot of twists and turns on our journey and there were also few storms that came our way. Thankfully, we were able to hurdle them. I hope and pray for a more happy, harmonious, loving life together as we continue our journey together in our marriage life.

Christmas 2010

We spent our Christmas at home with a simple noche buena. Troy and Therese visited us in the early evening to join our dinner. We had the indispensable lechon(roasted pig), my fave fruit salad, and spaghetti. Pappa rented a videoke so there was a singing in the terrace.

I admire little Keona's stamina. She never sleeps until 12:00 o'clock midnight, Christmas eve. She also ate a lot especially the fruit salad. mother, like daughter. I have not taken any photos. I just felt lazy taking photos and just enjoy the moment. Merry Christmas everyone.

Visit to the Pediatrician

We don't have work today. It was declared holiday by the president of the organization where I work. It is very timely since Keona needs to be brought to her pediatrician nephrologist as well as to her surgeon for a check-up. We'll be bringing with us the result of her renal scan which we will get yet at the nuclear medicine department.

After the check-up, we promised Keona to go shopping so we'll be strolling to the mall again. Have a great day friends!

Scheduled for Renal Scan

I went to the nuclear medicine department this afternoon and the personnel told me I need to coordinate with Dr. King Palabyab, the pediatric anesthesiologist because Keona will be sedated during the renal scan. There's a need for her to stay put without moving for 30 minutes to get the proper imaging of the renal scan and since she's just 2 years old, she'll be sedated.

I went to Dr. King Palabyab clinic and found out from her secretary that he is always on call. We were able to talk via phone and told me that he's available tomorrow afternoon so that's the schedule of Keona's renal scan.

I called him up this evening for instructions regarding Keona's fasting and he gave me instructions. He made a follow up of his instructions via text message which says" schedule 1pm renal scan. Awaken pt 4 milk feeding until 7 am only then offer juice, gatorade, c2,water + sugar only from 7am until 9am only then strictly npo thereafter."

I asked hubby the meaning of npo because he used to study nursing but he wanted to be sure what it's meaning is so we researched the medical abbreviation npo and we found the answer. It stands for nothing per orem which means nothing by mouth, an order given by doctors when they do not want their patient to take in any type of food or liquid by mouth.

So Keona will have no intake from 9am until 1 pm, her renal scan schedule. I'm asking for your prayers friends for the success of Keona's renal scan. I hope the result will be all right.

Happy Birthday to my Mom myspace graphic comments

I'd like to greet my mom Alice a very happy, happy birthday. I have always admired the courage of my Mom. She withered a lot of storms that come her way in spite of being alone, a single mother. Since my father passed away, 4 years ago, my Mom remained strong and steadfast.

She's soft-hearted and yet, she also has a strong spirit, bringing up her kids alone, working overtime to meet both ends meet. I love you very much Mom and have a blessed birthday. I hope and pray for your good health always, more birthdays to celebrate and a peaceful life forever. Happy birthday Mom and we, your children love you very much.

Showing her Favorite CD

Keona loves the Minnie Mouse clubhouse lately. She would shout "meeska mooska mickey mouse" together with Mickey Mouse so that the clubhouse will appear.

She also likes to sing the Hotdog Dance as well. She would make me and hubby dance with her. It's a long weekend since Monday is a holiday. Happy weekend everyone!

Getting Ready with Keona's Renal Scan

This month is scheduled for Keona's renal scan. We would have wanted to do it last week but there were inevitable circumstances that hinder us from doing it. We might be doing it in the weekend or next week. Hopefully, there will be no more interruptions and we can go on with our plan.

We want her undergo it before December comes so she can join with us with some planned party. She has been wanting to go to the beach since she heard us, hubby talking about going to the beach with some office mates. Need to go to bed now. Goodnight friends!

Pre-bedtime Routine

Keona follows a certain routine everyday. She wakes up in the morning->take her breakfast->shower time->play->eat lunch->afternoon sleep->afternoon snacks->play->supper->play again->shower-> get back to her dreamland. This is her usual routine except on certain occasions that we go out and stroll or go to mall or grannies would bring her to where ever they'll go, sometimes to the bank, to the supermarket, etc.

I like it when it's time for hubby and Keona to take their shower before bedtime. I can go online while the two of them play in the bathroom. Last night, while, the two of them were on their usual playing inside the bathroom, hubby called me up. I went to check on them and they were having a good time. Hubby signaled that I get a camera and took a photo of the little girl. I just did as instructed and here are the photos I took...

Jollibee is Kid's Favorite

Jollibee surely captured the heart of the kids. Their TV commercial is very powerful that a lot of kids really wanted to dine at this popular food chain. They are wise enough to target kids in their ads because really, when it comes to malling or deciding where to eat, the kiddos become the boss. So where ever they want to dine, their wants are the ones being followed.

Today, we don't have work because it's declared a holiday. We went malling and little girl once again enjoyed the rides in the mall. While she was riding a makeshift mickey mouse in the kid's play area, she just suddenly shout "Jollibee, I want that Jollibee!". She then cried and shouted so loud looking at the kid in our side. I then look at the direction where she was facing and I saw the kid holding and hugging tight her Jollibee stuffed toy. That's when I realized why she went wild. She wants to take hold of Jollibee.

Hubby and me decided to buy her one. Hubby told me to ask the mother where they bought that Jollibee stuffed toy who was busy taking pictures of her kid. She told it can be bought at the Jollibee food counter. We right away went upstairs to buy one. The price is 290 pesos but we should buy first any Jollibee meals to be able to buy that stuffed toy.

Whoaaa! It was really never in our plan and budget to buy that stuffed toy but bought it for we know it will make Keona really happy. Every time we go to Jollibee and dine, she always hug that big, life-size statue of Jollibee. Now that she has the stuffed toy, she can hug it anytime she wants.

Keona Fell on the Floor

Yesterday afternoon, when Keona was asleep, I left her on bed while I had my afternoon snack in the living room watching TV at the same time. I heard a bang on the floor and I hurriedly went to our room. Keona crying so loud on the floor. She fell on the floor! I did not expect her to fall because we usually leave her alone in the bed.

When she calmed down after crying so hard, we ask her if she's feeling something painful in her body. She said none. We presume that she's just okay. But I really felt guilty. I should have taken my afternoon snacks in our room!

Re-inventing her Look

My Happiness

These two people are my source of happiness, literally. I love to see them playing together, teasing each other. Most of the time they click together because hubby gives little girl time to play and let her toys like rubber duckie and green turtle float on her bathing water. Simple stuff, real happiness.

Close Combat Training: The Best Way to Defend Yourself

Whenever I come home from work, and open the TV to watch news. There are always a news about a girl or a woman being raped, either by a friend, a relative or a stranger. This really makes me sick, especially if the one who rapes the victim is a close friend or the more a RELATIVE!!!!. It's really sad and heartbreaking. I told myself what a woman like me can do to even have a chance to defend myself against such acts. I'm not a big woman, just a shade under 5'3" and slim. What are my chances against a guy who is practically twice or thrice my size? So I ask my husband what would be the best solution, and he told me, "You have to know how to defend yourself". He on the other hand had some classes in martial arts during his college days but it was just part of his subject in Physical Education (PE), and they only teach some basic self defense.

So I tried searching the net if there are some sites and videos that can teach me to learn martial arts. The net has plenty of sites that offer self defense techniques, close combat, grappling, and more. But there's this one site that caught my attention. It's all about close combat training, and the guy explaining the training really knows what he is talking about, and he is really making sense of what he's talking about. The site contains video that teaches you about close combat. Although you have to pay for it, personally I would really love to buy it if I had the money, but as of now I'm still a little short on cash. But if you visit the site, you'll understand it, and believe how important this training is, and how it will help you in such dangerous situations. Nothing beats preparedness and close combat training skills when we are faced with circumstances that give us no choice but to defend ourselves.

Mild Fever

Me and hubby returned home from work a little late yesterday because we dropped by at the grocery store to buy Keona's milk, biscuits and other personal necessities. Upon arriving home, Keona was asleep because she went with Mom in the mall in the afternoon.

Hubby sneaked into our room, very careful not to create a sound, so Keona won't wake up. But Keona, upon hearing some footsteps right away looked at who has arrived and upon seeing hubby, she right away smiled and said "Hi Papa".

I hurriedly changed clothes and she demanded that she wants milk from me. Yes, I'm still breastfeeding her even if she's already 2 years old. My milk is yummier compared to her Nan HW, she says whenever I teased her that I'll stop breastfeeding her because she's already a big girl.

While I do my breastfeeding, I usually caress her, run my fingers on her hair or do massage on her legs. I noticed her temperature is unusually high and I compared it to mine just by simply putting my hand on my forehead. I really had a doubt so I grabbed the digital thermometer and checked her temperature. She indeed has a mild fever. It was 37.2 degree celsius. I right away told hubby about it and we had her take paracetamol which is stored in the cabinet.

As night deepened, we continued to monitor on her temperature and after taking on her 1:45 am dosage, her fever did not return anymore. In the morning, she's still asleep while we are off for work. So we just told Mom to observe her temperature and call us at work if there are problems with her. Hopefully, it will not go back.

Nice Shoes for the Lilttle Ones

As early as now, I can see the fashion sense and taste for something pretty and cutie in my little girl. She already chooses her own dress and shoes. As she grows older, she has this fondness for pretty and comfortable shoes and sandals.

Little Keona has accumulated a number of shoes and sandals already and many of them are gifts and giveaways from her grannies. Well, the perks of being the only girl and the eldest grand daughter in my husband's side. She loves to wear them even when she's only at home. She would choose what color that she likes depending on her mood.LOLz

Even if she has plenty of sandals and shoes already, she can just use them for a few months and she outgrow it right away because kids, like her, grow really fast. So, we kept on buying her new ones adding to her collection. I love the joy and excitement in her face whenever we give her new sandals and shoes. She simply adore them.

As I was surfing the other night, she interrupted me and she wants me to carry her in front of the computer. Since I was planning to buy her new shoes and to keep her interested, we surf the net looking for baby shoes. She delights even simply by looking at them and she made her choice already so I have already in mind what I'm gonna buy soon.

Keona's 2nd Birthday

Keona's second birthday celebration was simple yet memorable. Visitors were a few close friends and office mates. Some of them are also Keona's godmothers during her baptism.

As planned, we celebrated her birthday with a buffet lunch. We were a little late than the expected time because it's a Friday and there were so much traffic in the route that we took. Nevertheless, we arrived the restaurant where most of our visitors already there.

Sharing you some photos here...

On Leave Today

I asked permission from my boss the other day that I won't report to work today, Keona's birthday. I told her I need time to bond with my little girl on her special day, so I filed a leave. Fortunately, without second thought, she allowed me.

Keona is still asleep now because she slept late last night playing. I bought her mat with photos of some Disney princesses whom she love so much. She was having a good time last night. We'll be adding some more of it next time. Have a nice day friends!
