couldn’t wait to have mischa along with us in places we frequent. i want to bring her to church, to the mall, to lolo and lola’s, to the office where her titos and titas want to pinch her cheeks because they say she’s so adorable. her trips outside the house involve only visits to the pediatrician. she has yet to see the real “outside world”. but before then, we have to place her formally in God’s loving hands. although i know that the Lord has been watching her ever since her she came into being.
we are now making preparations for her big day on the 22nd. we have limited time for this, unlike our wedding. nevertheless, we want her to have the best celebration so that when she is able to look at her pictures in the future, she will be proud of the day she became a member of God’s family. she will be blessed at the infamous edsa shrine. contrary to popular belief, this is not actually sosy since baptisms held at this church are free of charge. they just request from a “donation”, the amount of which depends really on the parents. our reason for choosing this particular house of God is fairly straightforward: the ortigas area is near our place in taytay (where we can’t find the churches!), and is accessible to most of our relatives and friends as they are scattered around the metropolis.
her invitation looks like this:
