Nicole Turns 1!!!!!




On a very rainy May 16, 2007, we all had a nice Chinese meal at Ruby Foo's to celebrate, capped with a Ben and Jerry's ice cream cake for dessert. Yum! Happy Birthday, my angel! Mama loves you!

We watched Les Miserables on April 10th, the night before my Dad's birthday. My Mom told me my Dad has a huge crush on you. We're planning to go back to New York in August to watch Les Miserables again for my 10th birthday.

Like Nicole, I got 25% Japanese blood in me. My Dad is Half-Filipino and Half-Japanese. Kenji is my Japanese name, how come Nicole doesn't have one?

Gerry Nepomuceno said...

She is so cute. She looked overwhelmed at the restaurant though. She appeared happier and more at ease with your mom at home. She probably did not understand the day was all about her. Just wait till she learns about Chuck E. Cheese's by age four. Thanks for sharing!

Jeffrey Imutan said...

cute naman ng mag-lola, i'm sure na tuwang-tuwa si tita bebeng. first granddaughter kasi. regards to tita, gerard and your family. ingat and god bless.

Gina MS said...

Hey, that photo album looks familiar! ;)

Gina MS said...

That's the best expression of an amused smile on Nic, perhaps right before bursting into a big hearty baby laugh? Everybody looks great and Jaime is sooo handsome!

Gina MS said...

One happy family! Thanks for sharing photos of Nic's special day with us!

Taju Medrano said...

Hi! I hope you like this scrap I made for you ma'am Lea. This was last year at the CCP. We gave birth to beautiful little girls the same year that's why this concert of yours was very dear to me. I was crying the whole time you sang "If I could." Hope you could squeeze in your schedule another concert here in Manila. It would be a dream come true to see my daughter Stella see you perform live.
