While in the car waiting for my mom to finish her shopping, we can see people running excitedly to and from the entrance. Some were shouting that there was some shooting. We can see the overpass getting full of usiseros.
When we're done shopping, we were surprised to see Edsa so free. To our surprise, there were 3 mobile patrol cars blocking the road, North bound. Then we heard a number of gunshots. So we immediately instructed the driver to speed away.
We were using my sister's car, who is not equipped with an EC tag, so we have to cue in the ticket lane. And to our surprise, there was a mobile patrol and motorcycles armed with armalites rushing their way into the NLEX. And we were held at the entrance of the expressway.
Listening at the AM Radio, there was a bus hold-up and they were running after the holdapers in their get-away vehicle. We were held for 20minutes, seeing all the mobile patrols of SWAT rushing into the expressway right in front of us.
With all the rush going through at the highway, my baby was busy playing inside the car. Innocence of the child. Thank God we were safe.
Here is my photo with my counsel.
This was Summer's 3rd time to visit the church. Last year, Mommy bought her this butterfly toy. This year, it was Daddy's turn to buy her the same toy. Di pa kami nakakababa ng bundok ng Antipolo, sira na.
Who would not be tempted to buy these goodies? From parking pa lang, people would sales talk you to buy from their stores. We bought suman and cashew nuts.

Alaina's my cousin's first child. She's the youngest in our Santiago clan. Summer just adores her. She calls all her baby dolls, Alaina.
Here's a photo of Summer with the celebrant and the funny photo of the celebrant.
Sad to say, Summer was scared to join the games. She refused to have her face paint and watch the balloon show.
She was sure happy to get her loot bag.
Happy birthday Alaina!

Omar called me to record the first sets of Maging Sino Ka Man since he was just on his way home. Obedient wife that I am, I took out my cellphone to video the telenovela. Come commercial, I would then transfer the recorded video to my laptop so I could delete it in my digicam for the next set. Ganyan ako ka-tsaga - gosh, must be love!
Since it's hard to video the tv show, I pulled the table in front of the tv where I could sit comfortably.
Just when I was transferring the video from my digicam to my laptop, I saw my baby fell down from the table, head first! And she got a bump on her upper left forehead, the size of a jackstone ball. I felt so terrible and guilty. I immediately put ice on her forehead. She was crying so loud and saying 'ako na! ako na!' But she would put the ice on her right forehead, far from her bump.
Come the next set of telenovela, as I was busy attending to her bump, not planning to record the succeeding sets, she pointed at the tv saying, 'ayan na! ayan na!' To pacify her, I recorded the succeeding show.
She wouldn't let me put ice on her bump. A papa's girl in the making that she was, she allowed her papa to apply ice on her forehead. Omar brought home a burger king meal for pasalubong. Summer's not allowed to drink soda. I often tell her 'no coke!' that she would shout at the tv 'no coke!' everytime she see the commercial of Coke. But since she was injured that night, Omar let her take a sip. After taking her sip, she approached me and with a wide grin on her face, told me 'Mama, coke! I like it!' GRrr.....

She had lunch with her apos at Jollibee and brought the kids at Kids Domain where they played for an hour. She also brought them to rides like carousel and crawling animals. Summer had lots of fun. She was even telling us 'horse' and 'jaja' over breakfast - attempting to tell us how her day with her lola went yesterday. For dinner, Mama Olive celebrated it with all her kids and wives and Tita Leslie. We had dinner at Tong Yang at Jupiter.
Happy Birthday Mama!

Height: 2ft. 11in.
Mother's height: 5ft. 4in.
Father's height: 5ft. 8in.
Note: This calculator works for children age 2 and up. (Depending on your child's age, we'll use some or all of the information you entered above in our calculations.) You may get inaccurate results for children who are exceptionally tall or are already taller than both their parents.Keep in mind that the BabyCenter Height Predictor is meant to be a fun tool. The result will be a "best guess" but it's still just that -- a guess. If you're concerned about your child's growth, talk to his healthcare provider.
Thanks for using our calculator!
Your daughter will likely be 5 feet, 7 inches tall at age 18.
This prediction is a "best guess" but it's still just that -- a guess. Based on the formula we used,* there's a 50 percent chance your daughter's full-grown height will be within 1 inch (above or below) of this prediction, a 69 percent chance it will be within 2 inches, and an 84 percent chance it will be within 3 inches.
The fine print:This method relies on where your daughter falls on the Centers for Disease Control's growth charts, and it assumes that she'll remain in the same percentile until she reaches her adult height. The accuracy of the prediction varies because some children will fall into different percentiles throughout childhood.*Reference:The Multiplier Method for Prediction of Adult HeightBy Jonathan Paley, Jonathan Talor, Anna Levin, Anil Bhave, Dror Paley, and John E.

She was such a thumbsucker that she already has a 'kalyo' on her left thumb. She thumbsucks when she sleeps.
But since Omar made her promise not to thumbsuck, I could see that she was trying her best to fulfill her promise. I know it was hard for her. I could see how much she wanted to please us.
I know, I am going to have a good daughter. Thank God!

She was sick for the last few days up to now that's why her eyes looks tired. I hope she gets well soon.
