Home again

I am back home in Cotabato again after spending 13 days in Manila with my children and grandchild. My daughter-in-law Angel is currently on maternity leave, recuperating from child birth and nursing baby Dylan.

When I was in Manila, Martha was so much under stress because it was the week before her finals. There were long tests to take( one subject after another )and many reports to submit. She worked very hard to be able to accomplish her work well. I hope and pray, all her efforts paid off.

New arrival

Angel gave birth to baby boy Dylan Noah early this morning August 10, 2006. Both mother and baby are doing well. Lucas and I, we went to the hospital nursery room several times today to have a peek at the new born baby. He looks like Tom.

I am a very proud parent and a grandmother. Grandmother sounds a little bit old for me but I am very happy. I thank God for the safe and normal delivery of the mother and the child. Thank you Lord for this wonderful new addition to our family.

Yesterday afternoon, I tried the sodoku for the first time. It was challenging and fun but I wasn't able to finish it. After filling up four vertical and horizontal rows, I didn't like to redo and change anything anymore, so I stopped from there on. I tried getting back at the sudoku at night,  but I knew if I was gonna continue and redo it; I will be too intense and not be able to go to sleep. So there, I threw the paper down and gave up. Maybe next time.

I am just waiting for my first grandchild to be born this August and off to Manila I go. I pray for Angel, my daughter-in-law to have a smooth and safe delivery. May the Lord brings us a healthy baby boy. I am all eager and excited. God bless us all.
