When I was in high school, I always wished I was older than I am, I'm thinking of myself as a business woman with a career, got married at the age of 30 or 32 (maybe). I don't think much of having a family by the age of 25, every thing has changed and it was GOOD.

Now, being pregnant is a BIG surprise for me.. Here's a picture of me, while waiting for the Husband at home.
BIG belly ah?

And what's even more surprising? My ultrasound.

I'm on my 25th week of pregnancy. Me and the Husband is sooo much excited to know our baby's gender..

And here are some captures.. And it's a healthy baby BOY! :)
I can see my Husband's BIG SMILE while we're inside the ultrasound room..
And yes, we're both teary-eyed..

Thank God for the blessings he bestowed me and my family.
And I'm looking forward for my next ultrasound in 3D :)
I wanna see his angelic face..

Process of Learning

As I welcome my 6th month of pregnancy, I never knew that I had so much support from my Mother, my four brothers, my four sister-in-laws and my husband, Jason..

I thought, I can do it alone.. Without any help but I'm totally wrong. I remember my 2 older brothers got married at the age of 18/19.. I was 4 years old then and was called Tita (Aunt).. I knew how to take care of babies, as if seen with how my sis-in-law do it. And now after 22 years, I'm the one whose gonna give birth and be called Mommy.. I wanna embrace that feeling, cause its the best gift God has given me and Jason. I won't count how long we've been together, cause I know its forever.. That's why I never stop on saying my thanks to God.

Now, I'm feeling heavy. I walk, I do some household chores though we already have two helpers at home. I do the grocery, I pay bills.. Its like I'm training myself for the future.. I eat for two, I sleep for two (an advantage, haha) I do things more than what I expect I can. I am truly blessed. And now that my belly's showing off, I am happy whenever I see people look at my belly and flash me a smile.. It makes me feel adorable, really.. Though I don't fix myself like I did before when me and Jason were dating, still he complement the way I look now with my belly :)

Last night, Jason set a movie date. I came from the office, while he came from his training in Manila. Of course, I was there earlier than he is, so I dropped by the bookstore and saw this and bought it.

And viola, I was running through the pages. It was like a kid with a new coloring book, I even bought a highlighter with it. Cause I know, it will tell me everything I need to know other than listening to old folks sayings.. *pamahiin* But hey, I respect that. Its just that, every pregnancy, every woman, every baby is and may be different from each other.. You may feel something that other pregnant woman don't. That's why it pays to read. And was thankful that I bought this..

When I was on my 2-3 months, and was excited to start buying baby stuffs, so I won't cram. One person comes into my mind, my Sister-in-law, Ate Sheryl.. She was the first one in the family who knew I was pregnant and was very much happy about it. She gives me advices about being pregnant, on giving birth, delivery and the baby itself. She is Shyan Carl's mom, my Kuya Ryan's wife, who was also my best friend who never misses to update me with good buys on baby stuffs. That's why I'm taking this opportunity to thank her for being the sister I don't have.

Thanks so much Ate She! You're the best sis-in-law! Love you!

What I've learn? Love the people around you. Learn to respect them. Don't be jealous. Don't pretend to be someone you're not just to get attention.

And the golden rule: Do unto others as you would have them do unto you. Matthew 7:12

All That Bag

When I was in high school, I change my bag every week.. Mom would always buy me new bag.. And I'm happy, I always look forward for the week ahead..

Before, the only time I get to hold and use Coach bags is when my sister-in-law from New York comes home to Pinas.. She brings home purses and bags for her two daughter, too bad they can't use it at school cause they're way too small to stuff their books in it, so here comes the Aunt (that's me) to the rescue.. LOL

It was my 24th birthday, when Jason bought a Lacoste bag for me.. I was thrilled and happy.. I won't ask for the price, but hey I don't really want to spend that much money on bags, I'd rather spend it on food. And until now, that bag still looks good. And that made me realize that an expensive bag may last for years-years..

When I got pregnant, I wished for a bigger bag than the usual that I use. Cause I want a big bag that has everything on it.. Papers, vitamins, baby book, etc. So I was looking for one.. I ended up buying a Black *kinda-big* Aldo Bag.. I could say its a good buy..

Now that I'm 25, I've learned so many things, like powders, make-ups, shower gels, etc. etc and *those* expensive bags (as they say..) And thanks to my very best friend Sofie who a self-confessed designer bag collector, who introduced me to the LV idea.. Yes, she did! :) Last year, we had a talk about having an LV, I didnt say yes, but I welcomed the idea.

One day, I saw my other sis-in-law posted a picture in her FB account of a Coach bags that's for sale.. I bought these two lovelies..

This is Polk, I got it. Hahaha :)
Then, my little surprise for my lovely Mom
I still have the purse in Polk's design, I'm still thinking if I want to sell it or use it...

Months past, I have Lucca :) My very own LV Speedy 35 :) My special thanks to Ate Sheryl and Kuya Ranni :)

When the Husband arrived home, he asked me where my new *expensive* bag is? I smiled. He asked if I liked it, I smiled again. And he hugged and kiss my belly.

He said.. " Enjoy Lucca, and maybe if our baby's a girl, she and even her daughter's daugther still can use it.. "

Laughed. Priceless.
