March 7, 2008 ... will remember this day forever. my mom, my ate and i planned it all out...we were going to have a surprise baby shower that day for my younger sis, roselle. we planned everything, then i emailed my titas and cousins, and my mom even booked the hotel 2 months ahead. the plan was to make it seem like my sister had a client appointment at the penn, and there we would surprise her. perfect right?

thursday night, 11pm, the night before the shower,...i got a call from my sister was on her way to the hospital, she was bleeding..! i prayed nothing was wrong. my ate and i drove to the hospital sometime past midnight, and we spent the night in the cold cold hospital (waaah)...and to think all week i hadn't slept more than 2 hours each night because of work! sleepless freezing hours later, at 5:40 am on friday my baby sister gave birth to a beautiful baby girl. physically drained yet emotionally on high, i can't even begin to describe what i was feeling when we were allowed to finally peek through the window to see her. ( best as i could see through sleepy-barely-open eyes anyway..O_o) she was so cute! (will post pictures soon as i get them)

as we prepared to leave the hospital and go to work (ugh) ate, in her usual bossy voice, quipped,
"o ha...don't forget yung baby shower mamaya"

Ingrid Calla're going to be just full of surprises, aren't you?

There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under heaven... He has made everything beautiful in its time.
