It’s my baby’s actual birthday today!!! My Lovey was “unexpected”. I already had a girl & a boy so my hunny and I thought that was it for us. But “accidents” happen.. this time, a GOOD accident, because my Lovey came into our lives!!! m/ I honestly didn’t want another child nasana, but now, I don’t know what my life would be without my Lovey who is the sweetest, most caring baby ever!! <3 So great things do come for a reason! I wouldn’t want to have it any other way! :)
All of 9 lbs!!! :)
After church, where the topic was NO GOD, KNOW FEAR. KNOW GOD, NO FEAR by pastor Joby Soriano (please click HERE for a video of his sermon), we invited my mom to have lunch with us at home. We bought a bunch of bola-bola last week & we decided to make shabu-shabu! m/
My 2 loves! <3
Bunch of bola-bola we bought from our binondo trip last week.
Nilagang baboy as base for our shabu-shabu
Bihon (or is it sotanghon???)
First, you put noodle in, then veggies (in this case, repolyo) & meat. Then you pile on the bola-bola.. coz that’s the fun part! ;) Soup comes next. And TADA!!! All-in-one meal!!! m/
But then again, you know that’s not enough for our family of heavy eaters, right? ;)) So we also have our favorite roast beef. Because we are such CARNIVORES!!! @_@
My HAPPY plate! ;)
As always, I love it when my mom can join us for lunch! <3
The little girls were too full na yesterday to eat the cake, so we had another cake blowing today! m/
But of course the birthday celebration doesn’t stop there –it’s my baby’s special day! :P So after opening presents…

My baby can’t wait to have her friends over & make popcorn!!! (all cooking gadgets can be bought from True Value)
Off we went to Greenbelt. And my baby bought stuff again from Muji, her favorite place in the world! @_@ Where she keeps & brings all her pens & stuff, I’ll never know!
Then we had dinner at Mr. Jones after they had done decent damage to both my & my hunny’s credit cards! @_@
Mr. Jones is a retro diner. My lovey wanted a themed thing for dinner so she really enjoyed the ambience & food here.
My 3 little piggies! <3 <3 <3
Games galore to choose from while we were waiting for our food.
Their dad taught them how to play “Pick-up-sticks”
Full concentration mode! ;))
Truffled disco fries 395.00 Appetizer for the kids. They have such HUGE appetites! I wonder where they get it from! ;))

Over at Max Brenner’s (where we didn’t see any BALD guys!) My Lavinia with her Daddy! <3
