I ended my 2012 praying for Kaitlin and my relationship with Totskie. Now I'm ending 2013 thanking the Lord for those answered prayers. 2012 and 2013 were the best years I've had ever and I know 2014 will be added to that list of fave years. And I thank the Lord in advance for that.

It's cold and windy outside. So let's get a bit mushy and throwback the most significant Thursday of my life...our wedding day. I decided to post it here so I will never forget...
I will never forget the day when I prayed that the Lord would give me a husband that fears Him and loves Him more than He would love me. Today, that prayer is granted. You are an answered prayer, Totskie. I will forever be grateful to Him that you came into my life right when I needed you most.
In front of your family, my family, and our friends, I promise to do my best to be a good wife to you, just as it is written in Proverbs 31. I will fix our bed in the morning, fold and organize your clothes in your closet, sing to you love songs til you fall asleep, dance with you on silly moments even if Kinect is not turned on, take off the head of the prawns so you could eat continuously, wipe your sweat after your regular 52k run, pray for your good everyday, listen to your stories, and be an angel when you need one. I will be a reminder of God’s love for you every single day of our lives together.
I pray and will strive hard so that our love may grow more and more in knowledge and depth of insight, so that we may be able to know what is best for us, and be pure and blameless before our God, filled with righteousness that comes from him alone, to the glory of our God.
Five years ago, or probably more than that, I loved you. It’s around 2:00 in the afternoon today, September 20, 2012, and my heart shouts I love you with all me. In two years, I will love you. We might have kids by then, and you will still be my baby. Ten years, 20 years, 50 years, I will still love you like it’s our wedding day. When we’re in our 70’s, old, grey, and not as beautiful or handsome as we are today, I will love you. I will love you everyday, every minute, every second, from this moment on. You will always be my favorite blessing, Totskie.

After more than a month of battling with allergies, Kaitlin is now a healthy happy kiddo!:D
Kaitlin had severe allergic reaction to vaccines. And we just found this out after several shots. Days after her first rotavirus shot, her skin was covered with rashes, she had fever, cough, and colds. Two weeks later, she had her PCV shot. And her allergic reaction got worse.
Having a sick baby is so heartbreaking especially if you're doing your best to keep her healthy. All along I thought that she was fine because I am giving her breast milk which is packed with all the nutrients she needs. But even my breast milk could cause her allergies. So I had to be on hypoallergenic diet for both of us. Five doctors/specialists checked her up but still the rashes wouldn't go away. We changed her meds and removed milk formula in her diet but to no avail. And finally, my officemate told this to her daughter who happens to be a young doctor and mother. She advised another set of meds (through text and without seeing Kaitlin). Hopeless as we are, we followed everything she said. In a span of two days, Kaitlin's rashes went away and she's jollier than ever! This implies that her allergies are gone! Praise God!:)
