Reluctant Flower Girl

Skye had her 2nd stint as a flower girl today at Sweet & Bam's wedding in Puerta Real. Unfortunately, after what she put me through getting that flower headdress on her, my little darling refused to walk. So I ended up carrying her AND her flower basket down the aisle. I think we're going to put a moratorium on flower girl bookings until am sure she will walk on her own. She was fine and running around though right after the ceremony. Go figure!

Pseudo-Day Off

Planned to stay home to catch up on sleep and CSI episodes saved on my laptop. But spent most of the day working anyway. sigh. Can't wait till the new sites are more stable. Hopefully then I'll get less calls from the sites and my To Do list on Outlook will be much, much shorter. Then I can have a REAL day off. Tomorrow though, by hook or by crook, I will leave work on time and bring Skye to a pool to swim. We both need a tan! hahaha :)

Flashback the day I brought her home from the hospital. See what i mean?! Time just really flew. Can't believe it's been 2 years. Eh, ignore me. Am just in one of those moods.

Growing Pains

She's doing the growing. I'm the one in pain...because she's just growing up TOO FAST! :_(

Retro Baby

Lazy Sunday

Was able to catch up on some sleep...woohoo! :D Wasn't getting much of that since we were so busy at work preparing for the opening of the new Gymboree Phils. sites. Woke up today at 12nn. Thank God I finally have a yaya. She can keep Skye company in the mornings when I don't have to wake up so early. Had a late lunch then now am trying to tinker with this blog. Kinda hard though coz Skye's on my lap doing the chicken dance while watching Dora. I have a dora video playing on the corner of my laptop screen. It's so hard to work coz half the time i just see the back of Skye's head instead of the screen. Maybe i'll try this again when she's out for her nap. Or then again, maybe I'll join her and take a nap myself...hehe. Then it's off to evening service for us. I love Sundays!


I'm so clueless with this blog thing. I can't get it the way I want it to be...argh! It's definitely time to call it a night. Morning, actually.

Here I Go Again

I don't know how many blogs I've started by now. I never seem to get past the first post! haha :D Well, let's see how far I get with this one.
