Julianna Alyssa's Christening 07.26.2008

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

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.

Question of the Week 23

Another of Yen's Question of the Week

1. List your 2 fave site or blog/s and link us up! Tell us why!
2. List two bad habits that you have. Now tell me which one you would be willing to give up first. First, I don't watch my diet. I eat what I want to eat ... now I'm having a problem losing weight. 2nd, I'm an impulse buyer. I tend to buy stuffs that I don't necessarily need. I'm willing to give up on the first one because I want to live a healthy lifestyle and I'll try to eat right.

3. What spice or seasoning is your favorite? Which one can you add to anything and make it taste better? It's not that it's my favorite, but I love putting patis with calamansi (fish sauce) in my Sinigang na baboy.

4. What is your birthstone? Do you like it? Or you want to change it? Turquoise is my birthstone. I simply love the color coz I love the color blue, and turquoise is close to that. As a matter of fact, it's part of my color motiff on my wedding day two years ago.

5. Do you know what’s your name means? What? All I know is that my name is the combination of my dad and moms name.

6. What color polish do you most often wear? Or do you wear one? I don't wear nail polish unless there's an occasion. I forgot what it's called but it's like metallic white.

7. Think about this for a second - When you fasten your pants do you button first of zip first? Zip first.

8. Which do you prefer, someone snoring right next to you on a plane or a baby crying right next to you on a plane too? A baby crying, I'm already immune to that.

9. Which would you prefer, made to eat bugs or drink sour milk? Why? Drink sour milk ... I'll just press my nose and gulp it all up. The bugs have texture, it would be so gross you could feel it while you chew it.

10. Which is worse, your roommate eating all the food or wearing your clothes? Wearing all my clothes

Marunong na magtipid

Baby Janna already know the art of "pagtitipid" ... or was it just coincidence? Coincidence because she had diaper rash a week ago. And since she's using diapers from day 1, my mom told us that she needs to wear "lampin" for the time being ... hanggang mawala lang daw yung kanyang diaper rash.

Until now Jason haven't bought any diapers ... nakakatipid na kami dahil mas pinili na ni Baby Janna for her to use cloth diapers. Goodluck to us pag time to visit her pedia, baka ayaw na niya mag-diapers huhuhu. Kahit kasi sa gabi ayaw na niya mag-diaper. Blame it on our very humid climate this past few days.

She uses 4 dozen of lampin a day ... thank God for maids ... they washed up all Janna's soiled lampin regularly ... every morning, afternoon and night. Oh di ba nakatipid nga kami sa diaper, pero mukhang mataas ang bill namin sa tubig this coming month hahaha.

Initially, we bought only 2 dozens of cloth diapers. Last week, mom bought additional 2 dozens ... and planning more to buy dozens of it. Sale ang Enfant, natuwa ang lola kaya bili ng bili.

Another thing, she doesn't want herself stuck in an aircon room. Kahit mainit na at init na init na kami lahat sa bahay, ayaw pa rin niya na naka-aircon. Hindi siya makatulog at sa tingin ko mana siya sa mom ko na ginawin. Ayan tuloy, my asthma and skin asthma has been eating me up this past few weeks. Dahil nasanay ako mag-aircon lalo na nung pregnant ako sa kanya, konting bahid lang ng init eh nag-aallergy ako. Wala naman ako magawa, hindi naman matutulog ang anak ko pag nag-aircon kami. O di ba, bawas sa bill ng kuryente?

Eversince Jason told Janna na ubusin ang kanyang milk every feeding, lagi siyang ubos. Hindi siya nagtitira. Kaya kahit mahal ang formula niya eh natutuwa naman kami pag inuubos niya ang milk niya.

Hay ... love talaga namin si Baby Janna, kahit nagkakandahirap na kami para sa kanya ok lang ... wish lang namin na tumigil na ang pagiging iyakin niya lalo na sa gabi!
