Baby Laica's Podium Finish at Walk for Jesus

"I can't carry your milk bottle, Ms. Laica, but I can carry you." - Super Lolo
My almost-8-month-old baby girl Laica wore a different kind of bib (number 22) and got second place last weekend for the kiddie category of Walk for Jesus, a walkathon organized by Christian Women of Metro Manila (CWMM) at Quezon City Memorial Circle. Although Tey and I were not there due to work demands, it was still a very happy moment for us as new parents.

"I can't carry your milk bottle, Ms. Laica, but I can carry you." I'm so wishing that Laica's lolo had used that line before he literally single-handedly carried my little girl all the way to the finish line!

I'm so blessed to be in a loving family. In some literal way, this event reminds me of how I have always been taught our family should be:
  • We carry those who are in need.
  • We celebrate the successes of each other.
  • We make wearing medals look good. :P

Kidding aside, it's such a joy for me as a parent to see my baby girl growing up in an environment of love, good values, and healthy lifestyle.

I realized in the past year that it's hard to maintain a race-review type of blog when you don't actually, er, join races. :P I look forward to joining races again in the future, perhaps next time there'll be three of us doing the superposition after limping to the finish line on the Skyway.

Here are some pictures from the event (grabbed from my Tita's page):

Cogratulations, Elaina Rebecca!!!

P.S. My wife and I missed running so much that we just had to do the superposition under the sea. :P
