My Letters To The Little One

…love letters from the Mommy

Post # 17

on October 11, 2011

Hi Leetol One! 🙂 You have been veeerrrry malikot lately ah… 😀 You always like to move when Mommy’s at work or when Mommy’s about to sleep. Daddy thinks that you prefer a noisy environment than a quiet one. 😀

And speaking of your very magaling na Daddy, he forgot to get the camera from Tito Yeye, so he could forward your ultrasound photos. >:/ So, as of now, Mommy can’t upload it just yet. 😦 *sigh* We can’t wait to get another one, as we can see that you are getting bigger (basing from Mommy’s tummy size) by the week. We do pray, hope and wish that you will not cross your legs this time, so the sonographer can tell us what your gender is. 😀

Anyhoo, early yesterday, Daddy and I applied for a marriage license in Quezon City Hall. We arrived there at around 9 AM, then proceeded quickly to the Civil Registry Office. The staff behind Counter 11 said that we had all the documents ready, it’s just that we did not have any extra copies, so we had to photocopy the rest of them. We also had to let a lawyer notarize these documents.

For the sake that you might get married in QC one day, or our readers need some help, here are the requirements we needed to have so we could apply for a marriage license in Quezon City:

1.) Certified True copy of Birth Certificate or Baptismal Certificate (don’t worry, they will give it back to you afterwards) of both applicants

2.) Community Residence Certificate / Cedula of both applicants

3.) Photo ID of both applicants

4.) Marriage License Application Form (downloadable from the Quezon City website) — print at least 3 copies of this document

5.) Parents’ Advice Form — Mommy and Daddy are both 24 years old (we were actually born only 22 days apart), so we needed two copies each for your grandmas and grandpa to sign.

Thankfully, they did not ask for our CENOMAR (Certificate of No Marriage), cause we were not able to get one, cause we did not have enough time. After that, we had to pay some fees (around 250 pesos all in all, I think) in the Treasurer’s Office, then went to different buildings for our Family Planning Seminar and Marriage Counseling Seminar schedules next week.

When we get our certificates for those seminars, we could claim our license on Friday, October 21, 2011, and we could get married anytime during the next four months. 😀 Yaaaaaaaay! 😀 We will be sharing Daddy’s surname soon! 🙂 Daddy and I are both excited, but I’m also a little scared at the moment. I told you last time that I’m not really used to being away from your Grandma for a long time, sooooo that makes me very sad and nervous, cause I don’t know what I will do without her. I told Grandma about this, and she just laughed it off at first 😡 She thinks I’m like this because I’m pregnant and all, but she assured me in the end that she will always be there when we need her. That’s a really comforting thought right now, as Mommy’s back is aching, her boobs are starting to hurt and swell plus her stomach is acting up like mad from too much eating. 😦 Doesn’t really do much difference to me, as you are the one gaining all the weight, and Mommy still has not gained much weight. 😛

We love you soooo much Leetol One! 😀

    Congrats Yana! Grabeh naman paperworks. Here in Texas it took less than 30 mins for us to get our marriage liscense.

    You’re so lucky to have your mom close by while you’re pregnant and when you raise your child. I wish I have the same privilege. My mom only gets to see us every 2-3 years 😦

    • The Mommy says:

      Thank you Sis Joy! 🙂 Wow, sana ganyan din dito sa Pinas… Oh well. 😦

      Yeah, I feel very blessed talaga… Awww, that’s too bad. At least we have Skype now. 😀
