Mommy Moments

mommy moments

It' s Friday once again and I can' t wait for today' s Mommy Moments theme: Treasured Pictures--- I have a lot of treasured pictures to share and if only I could share them all here I would but I' m posting my favorites and I guess you will recognize some of them. Here' s my entry with the stories behind the photos. ^_^

In the beginning--- This is one of our dates when I was still working as an talent/entertainer here in Japan. He proposed to me a week before the expiration of my contract as OCW.
After 3 years of getting to know each other, we got married on January 29 at my hometown in the Philippines. It was solemn, a number of guests and friends celebrated our day with us.
Wakaba--- My daughters name has something to do about NHK ( Japanese Broadcasting Channel )here in Japan---we already have in mind of what name to call of our girl after our ob gyn spilled out even if we didn't ask of our childs gender to extend our thrill. Kokoro means ' Heart ' for a girl and the Kokoro kanji ( Japanese character ) can also be read as ' Shin ' for a boy name. That time NHK' s Asadora ( morning drama series ) titled Kokoro of Noriko Nakagoshi and the drama was such a hit!And so we decided to change the name from Kokoro( 心 )  to Wakaba( 若葉 ) after she was born because we don' t want her name same as the drama series name of that time of the year. A months later a new morning drama series starts entitled Wakaba of Natsuki Harada. Coincidence?? Wakaba means a young leaf. ^_^

Haruka---We did a lot of thinking of what to name her and even bought a book for names but when she came to our life, it really made us confused more coz she looks like Wakaba when she was born. We chosed Haruka ( 遥 ) for it' s a kawaii name and it won' t give a confusion to others on how to read her name. And guess what? We found out later that there' s another new morning drama series titled Kaze no Haruka of Eri Murikawa that year! Another coincidence??
My Girls!!

Walking holding hands-- it always made my heart melt when I see them like that!!

Wakaba and Haruka--- I love taking pictures on their back coz it looks more natural.

A date with my husband---I love the marriage that I always wanted. I fall in love with him again everyday!

A recent family picture on a picnic--we had soo much fun there!!

Lovely, lovely pictures! I don't know which one I like the most 'coz they're all very lovely. But I got mesmerized by the first one; maybe because it's so sweet. And you two look so in love.:)

Hi Clarissa. Ngayon lang ako nakadaan dito kasi I've been feeling unwell lately. I'm okay now, though, Praise the Lord! Hope you're fine. God bless! :)
