Happy Birthday to Meeeee...

Oompa Loompa. My birthday the last time I was pregnant.

So many things have happened in the past few weeks that I have forgotten to realize that this is the last week that I'll be 20 *cough* 8.  And I quote a new hire, "I'm guessing you're 28 or 29 because you have a kid in maybe Grade 1... But you really look 25." Naks!  Thanks for the disclaimer, but no that's not part of your regularization process.  And pwede naman akong 19 kung gusto mong pilitin, and I just got pregnant when I was 14, if you want...

Make Your Own Havaianas

It was the first time Mia and I went to the "Make Your Own Havaianas" Event.  I heard about it from Mia's playmate, Sofia who had really cute slippers with her whole name on it!  I'm a sucker for customized.  Not so sucker enough to pay for them before this year though.  I knew it would be $$$ to get them.

Since my mom had points to spare in her Citibank credit card, I schemed decided we should do it.  I was suprised that there wasn't any line, but between us who went, we had 2 kids, 2 seniors and a pregnant lady.  What a recipe for instant access!

See you soon Cutiepiez

You'll definitely be on my unforgettable Citibankers list.  I already miss you.  Here's to achieving greater things and I will try my best to visit you (if not physically, spiritually... Haha.).

Enjoy, enjoy and enjoy!  Good luck with all the Kiwi Kyutiepiez.

I shall see you soon.

P.S. Thank you CK for our very late Christmas gift but we are not complaining :)

Full Circle

My first recital, same studio. Ignore my cousin with the kissy face.

The thing about having a kid relatively early, is that everything happens earlier.  Tomorrow, I'm accompanying Mia to her ballet recital pictorial. 

I can't believe it's with the same studio I went to when I was her age.  The place looks the same, the people are still the same (maybe a little bit more wrinkly).

Happy Mother's Day

Free photoshoot from Picture Company, yes PG!

I remember the first time I really felt I was a mother.  Mia was around a month or two old.  She was pooping every 2 seconds.  It was in the middle of the night.  She was crying because her lampin(we used lampin for a bit before we used disposables) was wet.  While I was changing her, she sneezed and parts of her poop and pee went to my arm.  And I couldn't do anything but clean her again, and clean myself.  (Karl was sleeping soundly in the bed, but who is asking? Hehe.)

My Pregnancy Skincare Regimen

Stretchmarks are the enemy!

Now that I've gotten that off my back...

During my pregnancy with Mia, I religiously used Palmer's Cocoa Butter.  I really don't know where I heard about this but I used it every day (or at least when I remembered which was MOST OF THE TIME) because I did not want to have stretchmarks.

We're Pregnant!

This is it, pancit!

A lot of people are thinking, finally!  But for me, it's never too soon.  I really don't know how people have kids after 2 years.  I know that's the better way, lesser gap between the kids.  They would end up being closer.  If they were the same sex, easier with clothes.  School books would be recycled.  But here we are! 5 years in the making.

People don't believe me when I say I was fat before.  Here's a preview of me being chaka fat and pregnant.  I didn't go out much so maybe that's why I ended up being chaka.
