A First-Time Aunt!

This past weekend, my little sister finally announced to the world (via FaceBook ofcourse!) that she and my brother-in-law are expecting their first bundle of joy later this year! That's right, I'm going to be an aunt and I am beyond excited! You really had to be there when they told us the news. Zoe (my sister) and John (my bro in law) were hanging out with S in his room and my husband and I were in our room. My sister came to us with her phone and said she wanted to show us a really cool picture she found.

ChitterChatter: What Do You Feed Your Little One(s)?

I'm sure, like most parents, you, like me, have obsessed over trying to provide a balanced diet for your little one. Not too much sugar, drink water not juice, eat your greens, lots of fruits and vegetables, keep the fried stuff to a minimum (or not at all!). But the more our little guy grows, the less obsessed I become. It's becoming harder and harder to be strict about everything, nowadays I've taken on more of a "whatever" attitude.

Capturing Memories

One of our family's favorite ways of capturing moments on film is with the Fujifilm Instax Mini camera. I was really sad when Polaroids went away because I love the look of the pictures, the simple white frame, the vintage feel. So when the Fujifilm Instax camera came, I was stoked and I had to get my hands on one right away.

Eggs-actly!

I came across these cute egg molds yesterday while I was browsing the web with my little sister. I don't know if I have any reason to shape eggs, but they're just too cute to not share. And for the kids who don't particularly enjoy eating eggs, maybe this will motivate them to at least try it? "take a bite off the rabbit ear honey!"

Whack The Piñata!

I've never gotten a pinata before. They look really fun, and I've seen lots of DIY pinata projects, but nothing really motivated me to get one. It's probably because the little dude is still kind of little. But after seeing these adorable pinatas by Whack Pinateria, I can't wait to get one for his next birthday. I mean, I always figured you can make anything into a pinata, but some of these ideas just never occurred to me, and I love it all! Art truly comes in so many different forms, and I love being surprised.

Here are some of my favorite art pieces for children's rooms and nurseries (although we have the Pirum Parum in our room because that's how much I love it). Enjoy!

First Dentist Visit

Our little guy had his first dentist visit today! I took him with me to my semi-annual checkup a few weeks ago because they had suggested to do that at the dentist's office to get him accustomed to what it's like there and what the experience was all about. He was very curious at my visit and was very well-behaved. Today, at his own appointment, he was no different. He was perfect (like the hygenist said). He lay very still the whole time, opened his mouth wide when he was asked to, didn't flinch, didn't whine and just followed every instruction to a tee.

Sushi Me Happy!

These colorful sushi platter and practice chopstick sets are perfect for little sushi lovers! Ever since he was one, our little guy ate sushi very impressively. We often got comments from strangers from the tables next to us because people were amazed at how much he enjoyed sushi and sashimi at such a young age. What can I say, he is half Japanese after all! hehe Have you introduced your little ones to sushi? Do they like it? S gulps down pieces of fish like it's candy.

A Weekend Of Golfing

The little guy got to go to the golf range this past weekend and practice his swing. His clubs are still a little too heavy for him, but he had fun, as always. Someday, he's going to be an athlete. He still can't make up his mind on what his favorite sport is because he likes them all (he sees basketball players and he wants to be a basketball player, while he plays soccer with his daddy he wants to be a soccer player.. etc.). I already envision cheering like crazy at his games, and I already feel like a proud mama!
