waking up for daddy

Last week, J had some errands to do here in Manila and decided to take a short visit (read: 30 mins stay) so his troops can rest and for him to see JB and me (hehe) even for a short while. The time: 1 am in the morning. Naturally, our dear son is already sleeping by this time (e pati nga ako dapat tulog na rin nito). J hurriedly went to JB when he arrived and tried to wake him up. Half-asleep, JB stared at this uniformed man holding him and upon recognizing that it's daddy, gave him a faint smile. As usual, JB received tons of kisses from daddy and this probably fully woke him up. J showed our little one to his troops and being the entertainer that our son is, gave his sweetest smile to our guests. He didn't get cranky at all. He was so behaved and was even telling stories to daddy but it was obvious that he was sleepy as he was yawning in between smiles and blabs. As soon as J left, he went back to sleep. It was as if our son already understood what was happening. He made every moment of daddy's short visit worthwhile. On his way back to camp, J texted me that his down spirits were revived upon seeing me (hehe again) and our smiling son.

JB is turning out to be one affectionate kid. And tomorrow, he turns 4.

Light a Candle

Thanks for this Carol!

Dear God,we pray for the quick recovery of all the sick and the dying especially those suffering from LUPUS and CANCER.

To those who will be tagged, all you have to do is keep this circulating. Even if it’s to only one person. In memory of anyone you know that has been struck down by a serious illness like Lupus or Cancer or is still living with it. A Candle Loses Nothing by Lighting Another Candle.

Please Keep This Candle Going! There will be a cure soon. Continue to have Hope and continue to pray.

edited: with pictures

I'm stealing some office time to blog. =) My to-do list this morning is so long. Just looking at it makes me tired already. Fortunately, I was able to scratch off a lot of tasks in my list.

I've been neglecting this blog again. Blame it on the office internet. For some reason, posting pictures in blogger was disabled so everytime I'll post, I get discouraged since I can't post pictures.

Our little boy experienced a lot of firsts the past month. Since he's already baptized, we have been tagging him along everywhere we go. We already spent a 3-day weekend in daddy's camp (his first out-of-town trip).

He was able to go malling already.

We brought him in Ocean Park (although we're planning to go back again when he's much older so he can appreciate it).
He also experienced his first evacuation. Hehe. Frank made his presence felt as our house got flooded and we were forced to go to a friends house (JB's ninang). Fortunately, the flood subsided fast and we were able to go home that same day. On to some more of JB's milestones...he can already support his head and I think he's already teething (aga noh?) since he's so fond of putting his hands in his mouth with vigorous sucking involved. Hay. He's growing up so fast. He turned 3 months last week.

As for me, I have finally adjusted to my work life again. I've been bothered with some personal issues lately (i'm not dwelling into details and I'm not blaming this on hormones). On my way home yesterday, I was pondering on these issues again. I had so many questions in mind. As I entered the cab, I think God talked to me directly and told me the answers to my questions. The driver's radio was tuned in to some religious station. The preacher seemed like he's talking to me directly. Wow. I got teary-eyed while listening. Amazing how God works noh?

Anyway, I will try to edit this blog at home to insert pictures of JB's "firsts". Uwian na! =)
