friday fill-ins 2011.15

1. I love to walk with bare feet on hot white sands.

2. I have a foolproof way of chasing stress away, I break into a song and a smile.

3. It's how you play the game that matters more that winning the game.

4. I'd rather hear the truth than deal with the agony of the depth of the things you don't tell me!

5. Well, would you be kind enough to give this poor mum a break she deserves.

6. Too bad we do not celebrate spring here, too much for spring peepers.

7. And as for the weekend, tonight I'm looking forward to reading this new paperback i recently bought, tomorrow my plans include going to the groceries with my son and Sunday, I want to visit my parents graves!

mommy moments: black or white?

this week, we are to post black and white photos of our babies, but alas, i didn't find any since jared doesn't have that much black stuffs (save for the black shorts we bought him some weeks ago) so i needed to improvise. 

check out my handy work, it's the first time i used gimp (thanks to sis kaye for the idea) + for a novice like me, i'd say it's much easier to use compared to photoshop. this is also my first attempt at including watermarks in my photo, kinda blah if you ask me, but i'll try to learn more about it + hopefully be able to add on a little watermark for all our photos here (wish me luck ;) )

about the photos:

the first one is taken a few weeks before jared's 1st birthday. we stopped by a local studio, topico, to have his very first pro pictorial taken. for a beginner, i'd say my son aced it with flying colors. only, we forgot to post with our son too, for a quick, professional family portrait! too bad, but i have that on my list + hopefully i'll be able to tick it off soon.

the second photo was taken inside jared's dad's car 10 days before his first birthday, we went to my old office that day to give out invites to jared's ninangs (godmothers) and my closest friends. one of her ninangs, chris, edited this photo to make it into the cross-stitchy texture + i just edited the color in gimp to change in into black + white. 

more black + white moments here

jared's fave: this is home by switchfoot

i enjoy watching this video over + over again, especially the part where aslan, the lion, will show up!i definitely love him + delights in watching him,i guess mum is delighted too, since she can go about her tasks, washing my feeding bottles most of the time, uninterrupted, well save for the time when she had to rush to the room when i called so she can press the replay button :)

hmm, maybe i can ask mum to download the entire film so we can watch it together, but my tita said it's quite advanced for my age, what with all the action and fight scenes. oh, well, maybe when am a little older.

apart from this one, i also watch barney episodes and cartoons to pass the time. so what videos do you enjoy watching lately?
