Doctors at an Orange County, California hospital made a very heavy delivery over the holidays.
Richard Walker Sault weighed 14-pounds and two-ounces when he born two days before Christmas.
Baby Sault's mother underwent a C-section, but both baby and mom are said to be doing fine.
The big problem for the family now is that Sault can't fit into his baby clothes.
His parents have had to exchange all his clothes for bigger sizes.
Officials at Saddleback Memorial Medical Center in Laguna Hills say Baby Sault is one of the biggest babies they've ever seen.

Have you planned your Noche Buena menu?
It has always been a tradition of our family to spend Christmas Eve all together in our parents’ house in Kamias. We make every Noche Buena a feast. Two Christmases ago we had Lechón Baboy (roasted pig) -- it was a gift from my sister’s client. Last year we had Filipino Style Spaghetti, Roasted Whole Chicken, Gising-Gising, Humba (Braised Pork Belly), Lumpiang Shanghai (spring rolls), Oven-cooked Tuna Panga, and for dessert we had Fruit Salad and Leche Flan (as always requested by hubby) and Chocolate Brownies.
On Christmas Eve 2008 we will all hear the Misa De Gallo (Midnight Mass) in Holy Family Parish. After which we will feast on the food each family will prepare:
* Pasta c/o Timi and family - Spaghetti (with 2-4 different sauces) or Baked Mac/Lasagna
* Pochero c/o JB and family (Rheez will be the cook for sure…hehe)
* Seafood variety c/o Tues & Cris – Tulingan, Lapu-Lapu, Prawns, Lobsters (could be any of those, could be all…WOW!)
* Lumpiang Shanghai by me & family - Due to insistent public demand. LOL
* Mango Float by me again. This is going to be my first time to prepare this so wish me all the luck.
* Caramel Cake by Estrel’s with “HAPPY BIRTHDAY, JESUS!” on it. Of course, all of these are for Jesus’ birthday celebration.
* Maybe we’ll all have wine later. *big grin*
Now we’re having a hard time thinking which should go first, opening of gifts or the food fest? Both are just überly exciting. :)

This is a repost from mrsgooding's blog about her daughter Bea Gooding's personal experience of racism. Let's help this mommy spread the word.
I’ve been living in New Zealand for close to 8 years now. I must say that compared to most Asian migrants, my daughter and I have had it good. Racist remarks have been few and far between over the years. Racial discrimination whether at work or at social occasions have been subtle enough to render themselves obscure. Perhaps having a Kiwi for a Husband made all the difference. Maybe, maybe not. We were immune from the racial jibes. The taunts. Or so I thought.
When silly remarks were made in the past such as ‘Asian b*tch’ or ‘Go home to your country’ , they were mostly ignored by us. I’m an adult. I can handle it. Heck, I even survived the racist remarks made by my Husband’s ex-wife to me when she found out we were getting married — ‘She’s only marrying you to escape the Philippines’. It angered me, yes, that’s true. But I also learnt to dismiss it as rants of a narrow-minded and ignorant individual.
Like I said, these things I managed and learnt to ignore over the years. I’m an adult. I can fight my own battles. I can choose to ignore and dismiss things as I go.
But sometimes, there are things that you can’t ignore. Especially if they are emotionally affecting someone you love more than life itself.
That someone is my only daughter, Bea.
Yesterday, she came home from school hysterical after a very traumatic bus ride. Three teenage boys taunted her and THREW STONES at her INSIDE the school bus while taunting her saying she doesn’t belong here and that she’s a bloody Asian. If she was not in a public place, who knows what extent they’d go to in their desire to be hurtful and destructive. I shudder at the thought.
It took all my herculean effort not to break down while my daughter narrated what happened to her over the phone.
I rage at the thought that this happened while my daughter was on her own without her family to protect her.
I rage at the thought that this is happening to a child who’s done nothing to deserve this treatment.
I rage at the thought that my daughter is being robbed of her childhood, her innocence. She is only 11! My daughter has started questioning her right to be in this country (this is not the first act of racist bullying she’s experienced). She may not be born in New Zealand but she is a New Zealander and has lived here more than half her life! We pay our taxes, we obey the law and we deserve to be treated with respect.
I rage at the thought of doing nothing.
When it affects my daughter’s welfare, I will speak and stand up for her rights.
So today, I make a stand.
I make a stand to STOP. RACISM.
As parents, you may think that silly remarks like ‘Asian b*tch* or ‘Lazy Maoris’ or ‘bloody nigger’ are harmless. But when spoken out loud in front of impressionable children, these can be taken as the ‘norm’. That it’s ok. Those children will grow up to become teenage bullies who will think nothing of what they say. Because they heard and learnt them from YOU.
PROTECT MY CHILD’S INNOCENCE.
Protect your children’s innocence.
I will not wait for anything worse to happen to her before I speak up.
I will not wait for her to question her life and the reason for loving and living in this country.
I will not wait for her to tell me ‘Mum, I want to go home.’ Because this is home for us. This is where we are building our family’s memories. New Zealand is the country we are re-planting our roots.
I will not allow for my daughter to consciously start mixing exclusively with her ‘own race’ to protect herself.
I will not wait till it’s too late. I don’t want to feel the anguish of Megan Meier’s parents have gone through with her suicide due to bullying at MySpace.
I want her to grow up knowing that this a better world for her. A world where people accept and respect you for you who you are regardless of the colour of your skin or station in life. A world where my daughter can grow up confident about herself and can stand up for her rights. Knowing that she is loved and that she is worth something.
Spread the word.
I am hopeful that each time my sharing gets read, it will make a positive difference in the way people view others. Remember, it takes one tiny step to make a difference.
STOP. RACISM. STOP. BULLYING.
Stop it now.
This is a battle worth fighting for. A war worth winning.

Putting baby to bed will be easier and less stressful if you stick to a pattern on a daily basis.
Sleep is not something you can force on someone, despite of how much you want or need them to drift off. However, following a routine that sets the mood for the night is a brilliant way of making sure that your baby knows that it's bedtime. Follow these tips to guide your bedtime ritual, although feel free to add your own, unique traditions.
Tip #1: Establish a regular sleeping time for your baby. Eight in the evening might be bedtime most nights, but if your baby is displaying signs of sleepiness earlier, put him to bed earlier. An overtired and restless baby is harder to settle and will be more likely to wake during the night.
Tip #2: Set calming daily rituals to prepare your baby to bed like warm bath, brushing teeth and gums, milk feeding, light massage, reading books and listening to music. A baby who has been bathed, dressed in clean and dry pajamas, had his diaper freshly changed and has a happy tummy really should have no reason not to feel sleepy. By trying your best to maintain the night time routine, your baby will come to know what to expect. And by the time you bring out the lavender oil, he will know it is time to lay his head down to sleep. The last feed should be accompanied by calmness, and an air of relaxation encouraged. Try to make time to feed your baby when you are not rushed with dinner, preparing lunches for the next day or trying to do dishes and help with older children's homework.
Tip #3: Exercise caution when choosing beddings. Make sure each item does not pose the risk of suffocating your baby.
Tip #4: Always keep all crib drop-sides up and locked in place whenever baby is in the crib. The crib should be positioned in a warm (or cool) spot in the room, should be clean and dry and arranged with the covers neatly tucked in.
Tip #5: Control the room lighting by using curtains and lamp shades to allow transition from active to peaceful sleeping time. It is even better if the baby's room has blinds or drapes that block the light from outside. Total darkness is not needed, just a little light present, for example from a night-light or a soft lamp is perfectly fine.

Between 6 and 10 months, your baby will wiggle and stretch, then push himself up and take off. He may also shimmy, scoot on him bottom, or skip crawling entirely…lots of babies do. To help develop a crawler's coordination:
- Fill a baby proofed room with cushions and boxes he can crawl over, under, or through.
- Pump up some music, plop down on all fours next to him, and swing to the beat. He'll likely imitate you.
Soon after he can stand, between 8 and 13 months, he'll most likely try taking steps while holding on to furniture. First he'll drag his feet sideways, but eventually he'll pick up his legs. To bring him closer to walking:
- Push furniture together so he can glide around a room.
- Stand him on your lap, then slowly move each of your legs up and down so he can get used to shifting his weight.
Between 9 and 14 months, your baby will let go of the couch and take his first steps. He may be unsteady at first, but to ease him along:
- Let him go barefoot so he can balance better.
- Stand a few feet away from him while holding a toy. With practice, he'll walk confidently toward you to grab it.
Can you actually spoil a baby?
Your baby cries a lot and you're uptight. You're not sure if you're supposed to soothe him or let him weep.
You are not alone. Many parents know very little about what to expect from babies. Your motherly instinct may be to comfort him, while friends and relatives tell you "No, you'll spoil him." The question is can you spoil an infant?
Spoiling means teaching someone to expect that his every demand will be met each time he makes it. Babies under three months exist in the present. And because crying is your infant's only way of telling you something is wrong, you need to listen to him so he can begin to make the connection between his cries and your reassuring, which happens around 6 months of age. Even then, an older baby probably is incapable of manipulating you to get your attention.
Young babies should not have to wait for a response, either. Too much stress on an infant's nervous system such as crying continuously is not healthy for him development. After three to six months, you can try stalling your response a bit with a gentle "I'll be right there", but it's never a good idea for babies younger than 6 months to "cry it out."
So trust your gut -- pacify your new baby when he weeps. Turn a deaf ear to everyone's advice not to your baby's cries.

We went to the mall two consecutive weekends ago to have our usual “family day out” and we stopped over at Toy Kingdom. I was trying to get some ideas on what I can get Janus for Christmas, since this is going to be his first, and they have such a massive selection of great toys that I went a bit mad. It’s just that there are loads of toys that I want to buy him, mainly so that I’ll have an excuse to play with them myself.
As we go around we thought of buying him a few toys. There were a lot to choose from, and I mean A LOT from Fisher-Price, Playskool, VTech, Chicco, Tomy, to those not-so expensive and known brands. As the salesladies and salesmen (otherwise known as “promodizers”) started to demonstrate the toys they also started to annoy us. They were talking crazy over at each other in front of us. So Vhic and I decided to leave them and look around more.
Here are some ride-ons that Janus tried:
How about a motorcycle?
Having a hard time choosing, Janus?
I’m still on the search of what Christmas present I’d give Janus. Right now I am just happy that this year he is my most special, early present that I got.
My Grumpy Santa

This Christmas, the most popular toys for boys follow a pattern. Young boys love toy figures and stuffed toys, but they also love electronic and video games and lifelike puppies.
Here are some gift suggestions for young boys this Christmas 2008:

Spin your body until you find one, hook it, reel it in until it appears on the black and white screen, then let the battle commence. Available in Red or Blue.
Cars Walkin' Talkin' Lightning McQueen By Mattel

Family reunions are the most popular in all reunions especially during the Christmas holidays. We keep in touch with distant relatives in so many ways. However, even with all the contributions of technology, it's still nice to see them in person once in a while. In fact, there's simply no alternative for it. They allow us to connect on a real, personal level with people who share our bloodline, most we rarely get to see.
Getting organized is the key in planning a family reunion. Planning an event like this can be an enormous job. To that end, you should ask for volunteers to help you. Many very large families actually form committees of people to handle different aspects of the event, such as location of venue, food (potluck or catered), invitations, fund raising, program and entertainment, etc. If you can get help and delegate responsibilities, things will be a lot easier on you.
Next, ask everyone who is being invited for their preferences of date, time and location. Also find out if anyone has any special dietary requirements that will need to be taken into consideration in menu planning. Once you have an idea of what people want, you'll be able to plan a better reunion.
Then, decide on a theme. Themes bring family reunions together in a big way. Will your theme be heritage, tropical, character inspired, or something else? Your decorations and invitations will have the same theme, as well as your planned activities.
Entertainment is important. You need to keep everyone occupied and engaged with each other. Plan games and other exciting activities that guests of all ages can enjoy. Karaoke, board games, parlor games and other fun activities are all popular reunion events.
Menu is as important as entertainment. Some reunions are catered, while others are covered dish or potluck. You should definitely not try to do it all yourself, as this would be overwhelming. Delegation is the key. Just be sure to make the food suitable for the venue and pleasing for the largest number of people. If you have any vegetarians or other family members with special dietary requirements, be sure to include foods those people can eat.
Once you learn how to plan a family reunion, it gets easier to do in the future. After your first try, you will have the skills you need to create delightful reunions any time your family wants to get together. In effect, if your first reunion is a success, you will likely always be the one the others call on to plan more events.

Here are some simple tips which were shared by my cousin that I find very handy. ;-)
Ants Problem: Keep the skin of cucumbers near the place or ant hole.
To get pure and clean ice: Boil water first before freezing.
To make the mirror shine: Clean with spirit.
To remove chewing gum from clothes: Keep the cloth in the freezer for an hour.
To whiten white clothes: Soak white clothes in hot water with a slice of lemon for 10 minutes.
To give a shine to hair: Add one teaspoon of vinegar to hair, and then wash.
To get maximum juice out of lemons: Soak lemons in hot water for one hour, and then juice them.
To avoid smell of cabbage while cooking: Keep a piece of bread on the cabbage in the vessel while cooking.
To rid the smell of fish from your hands: Wash your hands with a little apple vinegar.
To avoid tears while cutting onions: Chew gum.
To boil potatoes quickly: Skin one potato from one side only before boiling.
To boil eggs quickly: Add salt to the water and boil.
To check freshness of fish: Put it in a bowl of cold water. If the fish floats, it's fresh.
To check freshness of eggs: Put the egg in water. If it becomes horizontal, it's fresh. If it becomes slanting, it’s 3-4 days old. If it becomes vertical, it’s 10 days old. If it floats, it's stale.
To remove ink from clothes: Put toothpaste on the ink spots generously and let it dry completely, then wash.
To skin sweet potatoes quickly: Soak in cold water immediately after boiling.
To get rid of mice or rats: Sprinkle black pepper in places where you find mice or rats. They will run away.

I thought today was just another boring Saturday until my cell phone beeped around 4pm. A text message from my sister asking what was I doing at that moment. I replied “Nothing. Why?” She asked me to see her at the mall; she’ll buy some stuff for her kids then to the supermarket to hoard on Jasmine Thai Rice that were on sale. She also asked me to bring Janus with me. “Of course I’ll bring him”, I said. So off we went. Then she texted our other sister to join us too but she’ll be out of the office at 6pm, so she’ll just follow later. Then another thought came to her, “what if we’ll ask our hubbies to follow later and have dinner altogether someplace?” TIIIING!!!! What a brilliant idea! It’s been 2 weeks now since we last went out because hubby and son were both sick (at the same time) for a couple of days….hubby with flu; son with fever then colds. This is a great chance to see my sibs again and have quality time together…oh I miss them. Besides, they miss Janus too a lot. It was just unfortunate that we didn’t have our digicams, so we just settled with our cell phone cams instead.
While at the mall, my sister felt she needs to make up on my son so she bought Janus a set of jumpers. Sweet isn’t? We saw these table cloths with Christmas designs – she got me one too. Isn’t that double sweet? What about the dinner? We went mall-hopping and landed on a Chinese restaurant. There we shared their mouth-watery specialties and ended our meals with desserts (I had a banana split hahaha…I just can’t get enough of food). Not to mention all the chit chats and LOLs we had over food. Now that’s triple sweetness!!! I never thought this day would be a long and happy day. I just feel so happy.
We all went home with a full tummy. We dropped my sister and her daughter home with all her shopping bags. And before we left her house she gave me a “balato”. I asked her what was that for, she only said “nothing”. Hmmmm…..is today my lucky day? Nah! She’s just SUPER SWEET today!!!
I love you sisters! Mwah!

These cute little kids have grown a lot. I was surprised to see their pictures now especially Alfalfa. I think he's a fine young man. I almost have forgotten about him and has not seen any of his movies or tv shows... until I checked his filmography and there I found that he guested in the first season of CSI...hehehe... I really did not recognize him.
Vicki's looks has not changed a lot I think. When I was a kid I watched almost every episode of the Small Wonder and she was an adorable robot. I was also fond of her sense of humor.
It's nice to look back and remember how we got so hooked on these shows and the characters they portrayed. :)

Monday, Cadbury recalled Chinese-made products in Hong Kong. In their official statement issued by its Singapore office, tests had "cast doubt on the integrity of a range of our products manufactured in China."
It was not immediately clear whether they revealed melamine, but Cadbury said it had recalled 11 chocolate products made at its factory in Beijing which are distributed in Taiwan, Hong Kong and Australia.
Just before this milk scare erupted, I had been craving for chocolates and one of them was Cadbury’s Dairy Milk Bar, and Dairy Milk Chocettes. Geesh!

"In a relationship, do you have the right to remain silent? "
I heard this line from the TV series Men In Trees and it made me think deep. Do we really have the right to remain silent? For how long? I just can't seem to give myself an honest answer. Maybe I just simply don't know.

Keep your baby's diaper area clean, cool and dry. Wash baby’s bottom every nappy change with water. No need for soap. I only use soap when my baby poops. No powder too for Talcum powder can get in my baby's lungs. Cornstarch may make a diaper rash caused by a yeast infection worse. Pat dry (not scrub, it can irritate your baby's sensitive skin) to dry completely before putting on another diaper. Avoid baby wipes, it’ll save your baby’s delicate skin from irritation and even your pocket.
If your baby has rashes, try applying Desitin, Drapolene or Petroleum Jelly liberally to the affected area. If diaper rash persists, change the type of wipes, diapers or soap you're using.
This is a repost from an e-mail I received from my sister. I can’t help but say how dare these people, especially the Geng brothers, contaminate and sell tons of milk every day. They even confessed that they were aware of the chemical's harmful effect on the human body, saying their family never drank the contaminated milk. The nerve of these people! I just hope they don’t have children that could “possibly” sip on those tainted milk. It really breaks my heart every time I hear or see in the news that another baby has become a victim. Thank God for my wisdom and common sense. Otherwise, I may have settled for cheap formulas with labels I cannot read and understand. It’s really good to know that our government has banned any importations from China.
For your safety and precautions.
For your information, the following items have been recalled due to China’s milk scandal:
3. Mento's Yoghurt Bottle
4. Dove Chocolate
5. Oreo Wafer Sticks
6. Dutchlady Sterilized Milk
7. Wall's all natural mango
8. Mini Poppers Ice Cream
9. Magnum Ice Cream
10. Moo Sandwich Ice Cream
11. Mini Cornetto
12. Youcan Ice Cream
Stores have been asked by AVA Singapore to remove them. If u have any of these items at home, don't eat them.
Singapore's Agri-Food and Veterinary Authority (AVA) has said that its laboratory test have shown that the "White Rabbit Creamy Candy" from China is also contaminated with melamine.
Consumers who have bought the affected products are advised not to consume them, the AVA said in a statement.
The latest test results bring the total number of milk and related products from China imported into Singapore that are found to be contaminated with melamine to three.
The other two affected products are "Yili Brand" Choice Dairy Fruit Bar Yogurt Flavoured Ice Confection" and "Dutch Lady" brand of strawberry flavoured milk.
All the affected products have been recalled earlier.
Since Sept 19, 2008, AVA has suspended the import and sale of all milk and milk products from China.
These products include milk, ice-cream, yoghurt, confectionery such as chocolates, biscuits and sweets as well as any other products containing milk from China as an ingredient.
Retailers and importers have also been instructed to recall these products and withhold them from sale.
AVA will not hesitate to prosecute any retailer or importer who fails to remove these products from their shelves. Under the Sale of Food Act, anyone found selling unwholesome food can be fined up to $10,000 and/or sentenced to three months jail, or both.
As a precaution, consumers are also advised not to consume any milk or milk products from China.
