Luigi's Christening

We're gearing up for Luigi's upcoming christening next month.

So far, I've managed to make a sample invitation (designed lifted from the net) for our guests and family.

How do you like it?

Like Zoe, the rites will be at Sta. Maria della Strada and the reception will be at home. I've already booked CCME to cater for us. Hope the food is yummy and that things turn out well!

Done with the antibiotics, that is...

Luigi was found to have some infection in his blood because of the meconium he inhaled/took in while still in utero. Thus, he needed to have antibiotics injected via IV for seven super long days. I am so grateful lang na the pedia removed na the heplock on his left hand yesterday. Finally, his hand is now free! So kawawa to see him with a heplock strapped on his tiny hand.

Now, we are off to the lab for his CBC and CRP blood test. Hopefully, everything is now normal.

Girls' Clothes

It was my daughter's birthday last week and since I was indisposed to leave the house to bring her somewhere special or to prepare a big bash for her, I have been thinking of making up for my shortcoming by looking for some girls' dresses online for her.

It's really a great thing to be able to shop for clothes for my daughter without having to leave the house. For starters, I have been constantly visiting Shopwiki for help on where to start looking for casual clothes, dresses and sleepwear for Zoe. The pages not only gives me leads on the best places to make an online purchase but also suggests the latest styles and trends for young girls. Shopwiki even shares info about the general sizes for certain age brackets. This is a big help for mommies like me who are clueless on what size would fit my 3-year old daughter.

Anyway, we are planning the baptism of Zoe's baby brother for October. I hope that by then, I will be able to make a purchase for my daughter so that she will look fabulous too on that special day.

My Two Blessings

I love you both with a mother's heart, small as it is, but that which can encompass the world.

What to do

I'm currently on my 3rd day of my maternity leave but baby yet.

I'm getting a bit impatient already because when we went to the doctor yesterday, my cervix is still closed and I only have up to Wednesday next week for labor to set in. I told the doctor that we're willing to WAIT some more days until we finally decide to make a go for CS or not. A lot of things can still happen within the next 7 days, you know. I could still give birth via NSD, if God will really permit it.

So, what do I need to do? Well, I'll say: pray, wait, walk (and walk some more), maybe keep my mind busy by checking some stuff on the internet like how to get a term life insurance quote, read, and when the right time comes, give birth.

I'll keep you guys posted! Pls. pray for us some more!
