Our Life Photographed

Now that the new school year has started, we're back to bento-making three days a week. It used to be a challenge at the beginning, but I'm so used to it now. I'm the first to wake up and I try to work quietly in the kitchen as to not wake anyone else up. But Lilo usually follows me to the kitchen shortly after and the sound of her nails on the hardwood floors is what wakes the little guy up. We like the school day morning routines. I just have to make sure everyone is fed and ready to go, and daddy drops him off at school.

Our Life Photographed: More of Summer

This summer we've enjoyed a month of summer school (we tried a parent-participation program so I got to watch S interact with other people and explore the outdoors), we've done some crafting at home including our DIY puzzle, Kiwi Crate projects, flag-making for July 4th decorations and making our very own book. We've devoured a lot of summer fruits including berries, peaches and watermelon (S and his daddy's favorite!), and we even squeezed fresh OJ from oranges in our backyard.

Capturing Siblinghood

Even though all siblings fight and most days involve parents wanting to pull their hair out because of all the screaming, pushing and none-sharing, these tender moments that reflect the unconditional love that only siblings share make it all worthwhile. I can't imagine my life without my little sister. She is and will always be the person I want to run to with gossip or for advice. I want to tell her everything all the time and all my favorite memories of childhood involve my little sister. Life is just better when you have that forever companionship.

Highlights include: making lots of preschool friends, finally painting my flower pots, taking a pasta-making class with my little boy, making "gifts" for dada every day and surprising him when he comes home from work, new toys, bento-making, fun times in the back yard and hanging out with a very active baby cousin.

All these and more pictures are on my Instagram. (PITTR_PATTR)

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.

We're a family that LOVES taking pictures, but I'm not always so good at sharing pictures. That is.. until Instagram. I love the app and use it at least once a day, every day. It's been the best medium to help us collect our family memories in one place. It might be something about the squares, I just love everything about it.

Two baby shower-filled weekends coming right up! As if mommyhood can get any busier, yup planning two showers so close together will do just that! But I'm excited for the big reveals because (I hope) the expecting mommies and daddies will love what's in store for them. And speaking of expecting parents, I love this photo keepsake of life pre and post baby. Isn't it just adorable?

Everyone who knows me knows that I love taking pictures. If I could pick my career all over again, I would probably opt for photography and I wish I learnt more about it. I know it's not too late, but with a little one, priorities shift. Maybe some day, I'll be able to explore this hobby and passion a little further. For now, I can just drool over fancy new photography products/tools and use my little guy and our puppy as model guinea pigs! How wonderfully sweet are these La Sardina cameras?
