Jerry was all packed the night before. He was all set to fly from Cebu to Davao to attend the annual JC National Convention that day. Days before, he was hoping I'd give birth after his big event in Davao.

Hours before Jerry's flight, I started showing signs that I was due any minute. And as fate would have it, Jerry was rushing me to the hospital instead of rushing himself to the airport.

That day, my second son, Kyle, was born. And oh what a cute baby he was at that time! So tiny and rosy with a little dimple on the left cheek. Charming little bundle...

He sure didn't want his Papa to miss his coming!

Happy 8th birthday Kyle!

More reasons to thank God for today:
1. Jake turned exactly 7 months.
2. Junnie and Mitzi celebrated their 1st month in Canada.
3. I just posted my 1000th photo at fotopages. Yay!
4. And we're having "bulalo" for dinner as requested by the birthday boy. Hehe!

Beginner's Luck at the Milo Little Olympics Visayas

Ready for the 4 x 100 m. relay. Matt is 4th from the front.

It was a great day to run the tracks today. The weather was cooperative and showed nary a sign of impending rains. It was also fortunate that the event was scheduled after 2pm when the sun was not anymore at its hottest on Matt's (my 11-year old son) second weekend to run for his school.

Matt has been practicing to run these past weeks. I thought at first it was for his school's annual intramurals. However, I felt even more excited for him when it turned out to be for something bigger - the Milo Little Olympics for Visayas. He joined the school's running team by accident when his coach saw his potential in one of his PE classes. He got invited, and as they say the rest is history. Now he is being pitted against the fastest athletes from both public and private schools all over Visayas Region.

Matt was part of 4 events - the 200 and 400 m. dash, 4 x 100 and 4 x 400 m. relays all for the elementary division. He didn't qualify for the finals in the 200 and 400 m. sprints but went on to qualify for the relays to win the bronze medal for the 4 x 100 m. relay.

A new medal for a new sport for Matt, that's another one to add to his (academic and athletic) loot.

Baby Boom!

I have another cousin! (2nd degree)
Got an SMS yesterday from cousin Agnes. It read:

"We thank God for blessing us with Baby Alicia on Tues Oct 5 1126 am. Leaving the hospital now."

Aw how cute, 3 new babies for the clan on my paternal side - Jake, Zia and Alicia!!! Couldn't wait for the next grand reunion!

So many gizmos used to aid the report preparation, yet the pressure is still mounting....

The only thing that gets me going is what I presently have on my desktop --- a life-sized pic of my little guy Jake happily looking at me with wide-open eyes!

Oh my butterball, I get a recharge everytime I look at you...

*sigh* Just taking a short breather in between reports ...

What Makes You Cry?

Shhh... Jake's asleep...
I was awake at 4am today after sleeping at 8pm last night. No sleep the night before since I was trying to beat our report deadline (4th every month). Yes, times like this make me want to say "That's it. I've had it. Enough is enough."

However, this is just the occasional outburst I feel when pushed to my limit. Most of the time, I do well, even under extreme pressure. (yeah, right!)

The title of today's post is not really to discuss circumstances that wrench the heart and make you cry buckets of tears, whine or whimper. It's just inspired by what happened early this morning.

I was feeding Jake at 530 am when Jerry woke up earlier than usual. Seeing that the bottle was almost empty, I whispered & requested him to go make a bottle of milk for Jake. I happily went back to alternately reading my email and occasionally glancing at the near empty bottle that Jake was sucking. It was early. The only sounds to be heard were the hum of the airconditioning unit, the liquid passing through the rubber nipples, and my sporadic taps on the keyboard. It was blissful silence... Quite deafening if you ask me.

Then all of a sudden "ARRRSSHOOOO!!!". What the hoot?! Jerry was juggling the milk bottle and trying to shake it when the sneeze broke out. It was so loud in the dead silence that Jake was shaken from his sleep and his small fat body jerked on his back. The poor little guy gave a hearty shriek and prompted us to console him.

I was trying so hard not to burst into laughter as Jerry scooped him up to try to appease him. It was his "fault" after all. Hehehe.... What a sight. Being the good sport that he is, Jake gave his cutest smile to show everything is "forgiven". Heeeheeee.....

A loud sneeze early in the morning makes Jake cry.
