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

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