Our Baby Girl

It has been a very busy month for us. My wife was due to give birth to our second child on the first week of May but her doctor told us to expect the baby earlier since the baby will be born by C-section. We set the date to be on the 3rd week of April but to our surprise, the baby came much earlier. My wife was still going to the office but she decided to call me around 10:30am last April 8 because she called her doctor and asked for advice regarding the pain she felt the previous day. Upon seeing her doctor at around 11am, her doctor advised her to be admitted already because she had been experiencing contractions regularly.

To cut a long story short, my wife gave birth to our second child, a baby girl at around 3:30 pm last April 8. It was such a blessing because our first child is a boy and our second is a girl. We did not want to find out the gender of the child through ultrasound because we love the experience of people guessing if the baby is a girl or a boy and the surprise when my wife gives birth. Our daughter is 2.9kg when she was born and she looked like his brother when Leon was a new born. We stayed at the hospital for 3 days, too bad our son was not allowed to visit his mom but upon arriving at home, our son was really happy and excited to finally see his baby sister.

It has been more than a week now, after her first check up with the pediatrician, everything is ok and fine. We really thank God for the blessing we received and all the prayers our relatives and friends offered for us. We are very happy and excited to the coming days that we spend our time together, with my wife, our son and our baby daughter.

Its been a while since I wrote a post here in my blog. I discovered a new site and I got addicted to it since day one. The site is It was my first time there and I got addicted in posting answers and asking questions to the community. There is an incentive for every answer you post. Each answer, if you post within an hour when the question is posted, you get 4 points. If not, you still get 2 points. The point system will determine your rank or "belt" which will give you more opportunities when you accumulate points. Not only that, you get to earn a few dollars too, that is if you answer good, base on facts or experience and your answer was chosen as the best. You get to compete with a lot of members but it you will be inspired to answer better if you see that members comment or vote for your answer as the best.

Payout will be sent to your Paypal account upon you reach $150 Mahalo dollars. Each Mahalo dollar is equivalent to $0.75. It will be quite a while to reach $150 but you get to learn a lot more opportunities. Last month, they listed members who got a payout and I was surprised to see more than 20 members who got a payout ranging from M$150 to M$3000. Those who got more than M$500 are usually page managers of different pages in Mahalo or they did a number of tasks assigned. It is a nice site to learn new things and you get to improve your researching skills to get the best answer to each category.

Hopefully I get more time to post articles here in my blog. Summer is here and a lot of activities is in line during this season.
