Nic at Rehearsals, Day 2




I brought Nicole to day 2 of rehearsals for a Smart corporate concert with martin Nievera. She had herself a lot of fun... especially when rehearsals were over and she spent time in Daddy's office. Thanks again, Tita Girlie for these pictures!

(Shameless plug: Martin has a scent out called Inspired Madness. I don't know where it's available, but it smells pretty damn great! On him it did anyway...)

Regina Marie Javellana said...

Ji Lopez said...

Nicole Jimenez said...

yan kamukha mo siya jan

Chinky Fuentes said...

he he he. i like your caption on this one and the previous pic

Chinky Fuentes said...

nic is a very blessed girl to have you singing her to sleep.

Chinky Fuentes said...

why not? she's surrounded by musicians from birth. it would not be hard to teach her to play ANY instrument :)

Chinky Fuentes said...

Love her t-shirt. Love the print :)

Chinky Fuentes said...

workout for daddy :)

Chinky Fuentes said...

Cute t-shirt and i love the print :)

Chinky Fuentes said...

she looks like she understands what she is looking at... as if she is reading and trying to analyze what to do :)

Dana Cosio-Mercado said...

The Eponine look!
What a great job you have, and how cool is it that Nic gets to come to rehearsals?!?!
Lucky girl :)

JANE AREJOLA said...

Little Lea...:)

JANE AREJOLA said...

Thanks again Lea for sharing Nic's pics...She is so cute:) God Bless you and your family...Goodluck on your next gig.

Gina Balagon said...

Hi Lea, ganda ng t-shirt ni Nicole, may I know kung anong brand? Thanks...

Peachy Atilano said...

wow you guys finally got the macbook air!!! :)

Nora Cruz said...

Hi Lea,
Just wondering if your daughter understand or speaks Tagalog.

Jamie Marcelo said...

this will help improve robs golf swing =) ahehehe

look at her face! shes so happy! what a pretty gril!

Tracy J said...

I just love your captions! *laugh*

Chino Hernandez said...

Nic is sooooooo cute. Wow, Rob is Mac lover... and I completely understand :-D

Chino Hernandez said...

Nic here is beyond cute!

Guy Gustafson said...

He-he...she is having such a great time!! And c'mon, Rob is enjoying this, also!! :-)

Guy Gustafson said...

Yeah, describes my own relatives perfectly! Ha-ha! :-D Hey, c'mon Dad, quit poking me...I didn't really mean that.

Guy Gustafson said...

Really cute photo!!!

Guy Gustafson said...

Yep, both totally engrossed by what's on the monitor, but in the next picture...

Guy Gustafson said...

...Nic is much more intense than Daddy than the previous picture. Maybe watching Aladdin on the magic carpet in the cave? Don't think it's a stock you own gaining value, but it might be a game.

Jason . said...

is that a MacBook Air I see?

Guy Gustafson said...

Thank you for posting these! As always, they're very enjoyable, and God bless your family!!

joy weimer said...

agree! baby girl must sleep very well with Lea's voice. The rest of us must listen to the cd's ..am listening to Flower Drum(I enjoy being a girl) album as I browse thru her photos..

joy weimer said...

does she have a favorite song yet?

cherie gil said...

Hahaha! where'd you get this shirt? Must have one too! or more! So apropos! great that you take her every where with you! She's absorbing it all for sure! One lucky, blessed lil' girl to have parents like you both!

Lea Salonga said...

Hola! I got this shirt in Maui... we were rifling through all these shirts, and this was one of the few that was in her size. Given that her family is in this business, the shirt is also incredibly apropos.

cherie gil said...

Maui!! ergo... the term coconuts:)))) Got it!

ARIEL REONAL said...

It's nice when you get to do two things at one time. Your job as a singer and motherhood. Hehe. "Rock-a-bye baby on a tree top".

Lea Salonga said...

Oy! I was just with Miguel Vera, he did a cookware demo kanina at my auntie's house. Nagluto ng sinigang at fried chicken (neither with any added water or oil). Sarap palang magluto ang gago! He's doing fine, the family is here na rin with him in the Orange County area.

Lorie Vaflor said...

cute :)

ARIEL REONAL said...

Wow! Chef na rin pala siya. I can't forget him when he wore a "Rambo" wig at the helicopter scene in Manila. Hahaha! It's good he's doing well there. Ginutom ako bigla. Neither with any added water or oil? Paano yon, Manang? Did you learn how it's done?

Skip and Loretta :-) said...

Yeah! Great captions! :-)

raul montesa said...

hehehe... start them young...

Ronald Manaron said...

I really like this picture. You look totally at home too, Lea, literally juggling singing and motherhood at the same time!

ann reyes said...

it's really very interesting to look at kids faces they are so pure and true...(besides your baby is soooo cute!!!)

Urane laderas-cabantog said...

Nic and dad are enjoying....
so nice to see....

Urane laderas-cabantog said...

"iuwi na natin 'to" (giggles)

Urane laderas-cabantog said...

Yie Yin Foong said...

Iam super woman, look I can fly!

Arlene Teves-Du said...

Arlene Teves-Du said...

so cute! kakagigil!

Denise Linsangan said...

haha! she`s looking at the camera like "whatchu lookin at foo?"

Denise Linsangan said...

haha! she`s looking at the camera like "whatchu looki`n at foo?"

Denise Linsangan said...

man! you can sing with a baby in ur arms? you can do anything! galeng talaga!

Denise Linsangan said...

hey now that`s a good workout! ;)

Gina MS said...

This is my favorite (aside from the funny shirt!), pure joy on Daddy and his lil girl's face.

aggie . said...

your daughter is adorable, Lea.

Coney R. said...

awww!!! There really is such a special bonding between daddys and their little girls!!!

Coney R. said...

It's wonderful that you could take your daughter to work and carry her in your arms to sleep at the same time...how precious! She is blessed! You are blessed! Galing :-)

Coney R. said...

Hahaha! Funny caption...:-)

Nice Novesteras said...

huh hope i can watch your show idol!

Tricia McNulty said...

Was a huge fan? Me too. :)

Michelle S said...

What an impressive mom, multi-tasker extraordinaire =)

Totally understandable that your voice is so soothing for Nic, something she's loved hearing while in the womb =)

Good Luck on your San Diego concert. Have fun visiting OC =)

Li'l Dove Feather said...

Hello? You in there? Is there a Nic in the hat?

Li'l Dove Feather said...

Weheheheeee!!!!!!!!!!!!!! This is way cute!!!!!!!!!

Catol =(^..^)= said...

How cool that you get to take Nic to work with you!

jhunnelle sebastian said...

so touching, even if you're working you've managed to take care of nic and be with her. sana gayahin ka ng ibang celebrities.

joy weimer said...

hahaha..too funny!

Lea Salonga said...

At my house, it can be "Take Your Daughter to Work Day" everyday!!!

Has Malaya learned to knit or crochet yet?

Jny May said...

Wow! Such a perfect documentary. Nic will be most proud when she grows up.

Cheers!

Hermie Dalen said...

Hahaha...that will be Rob's additional work out

Catol =(^..^)= said...

She's curious! I give her knitting needles and yarn and she pretends to. Tells me she's making me a dress. :D

augustine73 . said...

is it the waterless sinigang and oil free fried chicken? must be SM. my co worker kinda forced me to attend one. of course i enjoyed the food ;)

Mia BellaMare said...

I'm sure he loves hearing that!

Mia BellaMare said...

ay, your li'l one is SO cute... 'yung cheeks n'ya, ang sarap kurutin!

diane frances said...

cute nyo talaga!

diane frances said...

diane frances said...

nakatulog sya because of your angelic voice...

diane frances said...

yeah, she will...

diane frances said...

she never want to miss your cute face...

√ ßarßarra ∫ee said...

Ahaaha, that's so cute

Riza Montaño said...

The MacBook Air? Just Divine.

r-tata A-B said...

Buti di sya malikot. Good girl:)

r-tata A-B said...

oh, oh...lol

r-tata A-B said...

My husband does the same with our two year old, suko ang daddy sa stamina ng baby namin. Masyadong hyper eh.

Margaret Tio said...

wow, nice bonding time with daddy =) are you and your husband now based in the philippines?

Lea Salonga said...

Yes we are.

Mimi KL said...

one thing i just can't figure out -- how she can keep still through the whole thing?! or at least long enough for her to fall asleep ;)

Li'l Dove Feather said...

I know of a brand that sells these really great cooking ware! We let them present them to people with cancer in Alabang when we had a small event. Really healthy and yummy cooking. Wish I could buy the set but I don't have the moolah :(

shirley c. said...

laki na ni nicole, very pretty and cutie manang mana sa mommy. God bless Lea!

Jacqueline Pisueña said...

Ms. Lea, are you not having a hard time singing while you're carrying your daughter? (",)

ark deveza said...

love it..

Lea Salonga said...

Hahaha, actually I didn't have a hard time rehearsing while carrying her. I'm probably just used to it.

Angela Villa-Real said...

Do you still breastfeed Nicole?

Lea Salonga said...

Nope, weaned her pretty easily at 11 months.

Angela Villa-Real said...

Oh I see. I love her skin. :D
Just asking because on TV commercials, they say a child can be breastfed until 2 years of age.
By the way, how old is Nicole?
She grows pretty fast, huh.

ria 04 said...

antukin? hehe...

Mabelle Sumalinog said...

Awww. That's a nice, spontaneous shot. Your hubby looks a lot like Robert Kiyosaki--only younger.

Mabelle Sumalinog said...

Dear Nicole, so are mine!

Li'l Dove Feather said...

Miss Lea, do you plan to send her to nursery school already?

Guy Gustafson said...

Take a peak from under that hat...it's now time for a HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!

Joti Molina-Rayos del Sol said...

little lea...

rochelle d said...

It's always nice to see your kid grow up and trying to learn new things. I know, cz I have one myself! Thanks Le, for posting Nic's photos in your (multiply) site. We, your loyal fans, are extremely grateful that hindi mo ipinadamot sa amin makita ang paglaki ni little Nic. It's always been a pleasure to see her cute little face here.

Prima Glass said...

My older daughter Lianna loves this too. I took a photo of her when she was 2 at Ludington State Park in Michigan using her grandpa as a "personal swing" just what Nic's doing to her dad:-)) I'll dig that photo up and post it on my profile.

Prima Glass said...

I just love Nic's smile. She's sooooooo adorable!

Prima Glass said...

I just love Nic's smile. She's such an adorable girl!

Prima Glass said...

Just love what's written on her shirt...ha-ha-ha!

Prima Glass said...

I am just wondering Lea if you are like me as a mother...I miss my daughters' baby stage. Don't get me wrong... I love every stage of their lives but in every stage there is some sort of sweetness that once they're past that stage---it's gone forever:-(( Well, that's why we take lots of photos and videos of them.

Prima Glass said...

Hmmm, maybe I am just such a drama queen mama..he-he-he. Umiiyak ako everytime na itinatabi ko ang mga baby clothes na di na kasya sa mga anak ko...ma-drama nga!

Prima Glass said...

Wow, you're so blessed. My younger daughter Chryssi just hates sleep---period! A drop of one piece of M & M on the carpet would wake her up!

Prima Glass said...

Talagang hating-hati ang beauty ni Nicole between you and your hubby.

Prima Glass said...

Enjoy na enjoy si Nicole ah.

Elodie Russo said...

She's such a beautiful little girl! Makes me want a little sister more than ever! (not a daughter though. I'm only 17! Or at least not before yeaaaars! haha)
And it's not the fan who is writing that, I do promise!

♥CHeRRyBLue SHoP♥ said...

I used to do the same with my dad when I was a small kid.

Do you realize how great your mom is? i've been her fan for a long time..... just watch her concerts when aired on tv....... ahuhuhu...... can't afford to see live ones. My mom was able to watch les miz in NY. she's very lucky to be living there with my bro.

Lolita Valle said...

Lolita Valle said...

The good thing about your information is that it is explicit enough for students to grasp. Thanks for your efforts in spreading academic knowledge.
