Geoff’s First Haircut

Last week, Babe and I agreed to have Geoff’s hair cut. It was constantly in his eyes, and because of the heat, the wawa baby had to endure his long hair. This is what he would usually look like at home, earning our neighbors’ nickname as Jopay:

Notice the elastic band on his hair which has been a fixture to the baby ever since his hair started growing long.

Off we went to Market Market! to find that hair salon for kids named Giggles and Wiggles Hair Salon. We were the only customers during that time. They accommodated us real nice naman and Geoff seemed to enjoy it until kuya barber turned the razor on. The baby went cried like crazy that I have to carry him instead. In fairness, kuya worked fast and he did it with ease, even if Geoff was already screaming his head off.

Serious si kuya.. while Geoff is crying his heart out.. Best child actor talaga ang peg 🙂

This is what he looks like now. He looks like a little boy now than a baby, which is probably what I regret, but overall, if it is Geoff’s welfare that I will be thinking, the haircut is worth it. The baby boy now looks a lot more sutil than he ever was!

After the haircut, we went for a stroll in Bonifacio High Street. We decided to stay and eat in Krispy Kreme as it was still too hot to let the baby venture out. He is so mobile nowadays, with him discovering his new found love with walking.

Side kwento: Being the curious baby that he is, he is particularly fond of getting near dogs. There were lots of dogs in BGC, with their owners of course. Some are friendly, some noisy (please note that I am generalizing both dogs and owners), and some are flat out masungit. There was this one pack that Geoff wanted to get near to. As he went closer, a chihuahua came forward and barked angrily at Geoff. Buti na lang unaffected pa si Geoff, pangit nga lang kasi ni hindi man lang nag apologize or ngumiti yung may hawak sa dog.

There was also this fountain in one area that Geoff enjoyed. It’s a rock on top of supporting pillars wherein water showers from it. Geoff kept on coming back and was really mesmerized with the rain like experience. He also liked the giant chimes and he was playing peek-a-boo with us there.

Basa si mommy, mas lalo yung baby 🙂

It was a really tiring day as I also attended my very first Yummy Eats event. Was bloated with the food but was still able to share some goodies even if Babe did not come with me. It is also one of those days that I can go back to, with Geoff so happy and carefree.

 

Weekend Roller Coaster of Feelings

Here is a quick glimpse of how our weekend went. It somehow a roller coaster of emotions but none of them went beyond the extreme levels. A good weekend nonetheless.

Excitement: As usual, Friday marks the end of the week. The day we always look forward to end as it marks the start of a few days of rest (sort of!) We got home a little bit after 1AM (we get off work at 12AM) and relaxed a bit by watching a few shows on cable. We also planned how our day (Saturday) should be.

Worry: We went to the market on Saturday morning. We got up late and was quite cramming to catch up before noon. I was also worried that we won’t be able to buy anything fresh anymore. We also took the car with us (Thank you, Babe!) for the first time and almost got lost on our way back (Heehee!). Well, we got back just in time for lunch. I cooked something easy that afternoon as we somewhere else to go to that afternoon.

Regret: BTW, we bought this cheap pile of galunggong from the market. When we got home, we discovered that it was no longer fresh. To make sure that it won’t go to waste, we decided to fry it well and feed it to the cat. Syempre, I cleaned it well because I am not the type to feed my cat something spoiled. Bilasa yung fish, pero hindi pa sira (technically!). I think the cat was most thankful anyway. We were also unable to attend a good friend’s event that day. We were running late, thus I just texted my apologies. Perfect timing pa naman sana to bring Geoff along, kaya lang, we had to be somewhere pa.

Pride: The final destination that day was Babe’s sisters’ house in Fairview. Ate Lady shared her good news of winning an Ipad Mini (galing!) in one of the seminars she attended. Ate Jen also shared some of their construction projects (kakagigil tuloy lalo magka-house). In addition, Ate Lady and Angel also showed us their felt creations. Let me tell you, it will really rival those in the market now. It wasn’t surprising that Ate Lady got her talent from their mom, who is also amazing at sewing (sorry, I don’t know the term. Seamstress ba?). I hope they set up their online shop soon. As in sooobrang cute ng creations nila, lalo yung monster pouches and bagtags.

Envy: When I saw Ate’s creations, I felt envious because I don’t think I can manage something as “pulido” as her work. Even Angel’s leaf design was detailed. In short, inggit ako. As a result, I bought myself some Velcro. I’ll start with my own pouches and have my mom sell it cheap to some of the kids in Las Pinas. The timing is right as they are about to start school soon, so baka sakaling mabenta yung mga pouches (haha!).

Affection: Geoff was too excited, happy, and hyper the whole time he was in Fairview. As usual, he loved the way he was treated there. Malanding bata eh (Haha!). It took him a while to warm up to his aunts and cousins, but after that, he was always on the move, giggling and laughing all the while. He did not sleep all afternoon(tsk tsk), and did not want to sleep even if he was too tired that night. He indeed got the spotlight that afternoon even from his cousin, Kuya Acob, who was teaching him stuff. We can see his affection as he tried to follow his kuya and tried getting his attention by talking baby and gestures. Sayang, there is no video, but they look cute together.

Appreciation: Babe and I had date night yesterday in Market! Market! We watched the Iron Man 3 in 2D. We were supposed to go to the Newport Cinema, however, we found out that there was no CityLink schedule on a Sunday (we did not want to go the long commute way), we decided against it. What finalized the decision was an FX with a sign board for Market! Market!. We ate fondue in a cup and a chicken and pasta combo. We also strolled inside the mall and found some amazing furniture that will hopefully fill our future house. Come movie time, we liked that the cinema was well spaced. This is a must as Babe is tall and there should be enough leg room for him. We stayed until the end of the movie credits, we loved waiting for the after credit scene. Overall, we loved the movie. We loved all the scenes, no ho-hum moments, we loved the kick-ass characters that made it all up. Given the chance, I’d gladly repeat the movie. And the date. BTW, before I end the day’s kwento, we also bought Geoff this fishing game, but are also thinking about keeping it until he is out of the “subo-subo” phase (harhar!).

All in all, it was another weekend well spent with family. I wish we could have more of these frequently, however, Monday is already here. I’ll just countdown until another Friday and make the most out of it again.
