OB-GYNE Appointment #1
Inside Dr. Ballon-Reyes's clinic...
Daddy & Eulla
Mama & Eulla
A peek of Baby Ruanto at 8 weeks
We decided to take Eulla to Topanga Mall and give her some treats after my check up. She's been stuck in the house since I started feeling sick with my morning sickness. Good thing she's been really cooperative. I can even ask her to get me little things. She truly deserved a carousel ride.

Morning Sickness Day & Night
Oh my gosh, that is all I can say. I am back to how I was when I was pregnant with Eulla. I have morning sickness the whole day and what's worse is that the feeling is increase by night time! I have not been able to do much since my 5th week. I would sleep and sleep just to relieve the feeling of nausea.
Finally, I have had just trying to solve this with crackers, water and my sea band. I called my doctor to let her know how I have been feeling. She was a bit bothered that I am not able to keep food down so she gave me medications for my morning sickness. Plus it will be a four day weekend and I want to be able to enjoy it with my family and friends.
Around 4PM, Dr. Ballon-Reyes nurse told me that my prescription was ready at our local Walgreens. Eumir, Eulla and I got ready right away and somehow planned what was left with our Friday afternoon.
Dr. Reyes gave me Ondasetron. Hope it helps till we see her on May 30.

Yes, you all read right! We are expecting. I am now about 6 weeks pregnant according to the pregnancy date calculator on line. My first appointment will not be till May 30 at Northridge Hospital with Dr. Ballon-Reyes. Same OB-GYNE that delivered Eulla.
So far, my sense of smell has been extra sensitive. Makes me sick to my stomach when I smell something I dont like. Exactly how I was when I was pregnant with Eulla. But for some reason, this one came faster than it did before. As soon as 5 weeks stepped in, I immediately had a strong sense of smell. I've been feeling really tired.
We are all so excited what our next baby will be ~ A BOY or A GIRL. We have been trying to explain to Eulla that she will be an ATE soon. She knows that the baby is in my tummy but also agrees that she has one in hers too (hahaha, makes me laugh). It will take some time till she understand I guess. As for Eumir, he has been having some sympathy pains. Craving everything I am craving. But overall he is preparing himself to be a Daddy of two soon.
Just wanted to share this to all my familys and friends. We will soon welcome an addition to our family on January :D

We went to Oxnard Fisherman's Wharf for Mother's Day. This is a family's favorite seafood outdoor res
tuarant. Not only are the prawns and crabs so good, the venue is always nice to eat under the sun even if the place is packed full of people. Luckily, we decided to leave San Fernando Valley around 10am so we can be at Ventura County by elevenish. Perfect to start off our lunch.
Everyone met at Oxanrd by 12 noon and chow began as soon as our order came. We had some yummy grilled prawns, spider crabs, rock crabs, clam chowder, fried tilapia and rice of course.
Packed with people. Some still waiting for a table.credit: shabby princess ~ sweet serenity

2 and a half years old!
I cant believe I almost forgot that my baby girl turned 2 1/2 today. We're just so pre-occupied with so many things. You will all find out why real soon!
We spent most of the day at my parents house. But first, we did our errands like our grocery shopping and bought some snacks that I was craving for. We just relaxed at my parents house while we watched the Lakers game. We had some Papa John's Pizza which we waited for an hour and 10 minutes for to be delivered. It was still worth the wait.
Here is Eulla at 30 months credit: shabby princess ~ too soon

Eumir's 32nd Birthday
Eumir is not the type of person who likes to celebrate his birthday. Ever since we met, I've made it to a point we do something nice for May 6. As usual, he would kid and say "what's with may 6?". So for this day I called on our good friends (Eulla's godparents) to come eat dinner with us. We celebrated Eumir's birthday with the Gregorio Family. We went Asahi Sushi Restuarant for dinner and then off to Starbucks for some coffee and milk for the little girls.

Movies & Park
It will be Eumir's birthday on Tuesday. We were suppose to eat out and watch a movie but we decided to move watching a movie this weekend. I asked my parents to take care of Eulla for several hours while Eumir and I go out and watch a movie. They said YES!
So after dropping Eulla off at my parents house around 2:30PM, we went to Winnetka Theaters to catch the 3:30 show of Baby Mama. We both needed some laugh and wanted to leave the theater with a good feeling.
It seemed like a treat for me and my love so we want to make sure Eulla gets as much fun as we had. When we got back to Sylmar to get Eulla. Mom and Dad said that she had so much fun and so did they watching Eulla. Something I love to hear. Eulla didnt give then a hard time. She greeted us with her thrilled voice when she saw us.
We went to the Simi Valley Park. Daddy Eumir shooted some hoops to burn off some fats while Eulla and I ran around. We also went to the swing where we stayed most of the time. When it started to get cold around 7:30PM, we went home. During the car ride home, Eulla fell asleep. I guess she was exhausted.

Eulla had her first haircut done by my mom a little after her first birthday. Only, it was just a few strands that I felt like it didnt count. Eumir was upset I had it done. Then, Daddy Eumir cut Eulla's hair around December of 2007 when we both got a haircut but it was just the bangs.
This has been long overdue. I have had it on my list of things to do with Eulla for the longest time. It was just not possible because her hair took so long to grow and is very fine. BUT, this Friday is special, Eulla's bangs had grown out and her hair at the back is no longer the same length. After much debating, I had finally convinced Daddy Eumir that its time for Eulla to get her hair professionally cut. Of course, what's a haircut if it was not coming from one of the best in town. I am overly excited for her so I want to be able to make this trip special even if it will only take less than 10 minutes.
I did my research on line and even asked friends and so far, I heard the the Lollicut
was one of the best place to get a toddler's haircut. I visited their website and when I saw that the award winning children's haircut
was located at Tarzana which was just several miles away from us, I made the appointment for Eulla for a 3PM haircut.
As for plans, Eumir and I thought we had everything set. I even made the appointment so that Eulla would be done with her nap but things didnt go as planned. We headed to Lollicut around 2:30 and Eulla had not had her nap. I knew it was going to be interesting when we get there.
Eulla fell asleep in the SUV for 5 minutes and we had to wake her once we got there. When she saw the balloons outside, immediately she said wow. She was excited once we got inside. I guess she thought that it was a play ground. She went from car to car and when we finally asked her where she wanted to sit for her haircut, she clinged tightly on her Daddy. The hairdresser asked if she wanted to sit on my lap instead and she nodded her head.
Eulla ended up getting her haircut on my lap. She was pretty good but seemed really scared. She was given a lollipop while she got her haircut and that was the main factor that made her stay put. After her haircut, we promised her she can play in the salon for 5 minutes then it was off to an ice cream parlor...Cold Stone!

We had Eulla chose the ice cream the three of us shared. We had 1 scoop of strawberry ice cream, chocolate, vanilla and coffee on the side for me. She had extra strawberries and gummy bears put in it. Eulla told us many stories while we ate our our ice cream. A lot of words Daddy and I tried to figure out. It was fun!

Betty & Estella picked Eulla and me up for lunch. Eumir had to stay home and finish up a project. We met Reggie at his work and we all headed to Simi Valley Town Center where Mushashi Restuarant
just opened. We had our lunch there, chit chatted a bit and discussed the new "good news". I'll let everyone else know what the good news is a little later.
