Mom What's My Height?

You'll probably thinking based on the photo that this little guy is asking what's his height by now, because he was standing against the wall with the height chart.

But the truth is he's trying to rip it off, too bad the chart was attached using heavy duty tape. Sooner or later this will end up in the floor. I hope not..

Cadbury Flake & Dairy Milk

Got a lot of chocolates as "pasalubong" from a friend, and these are what I took out for dessert.

Playing with Papa

Poor Papa, he cannot sleep even for few minutes because this little guy in orange loves to hangout around him. Look at him, moving from side to the other side, did some wrestling and ride on his Papa's back, this little guy had turned from behaved boy to "makulit" boy.. lol

He's tired now and had posed for a shot.

Checking Out His Photo Album

Look! Xye is checking out what he looks like when he was still so small...

cutie isn't it...

Birthday Wish 2012

My birthday wish for this year is actually the same as what I had wished last year. As stated it was a mission impossible for me, and indeed was impossible because I was not able to purchase a 7D Canon DSLR that I've dreamt of, simply because I really can’t afford it.

And since it’s too expensive, I’ll downgrade my want into a Canon 60D DSLR instead. If I rely only on our monthly income as an employee, I definitely can’t have one , because our regular income were already budgeted to something much more important that gadgets.

My only hope is to be able to earn something from this world called blogging, and hopefully those saved earnings will make me buy this little monster if not this year, maybe next year or the year after. I’m crossing my 10 fingers here… I still have hope. Who knows…

January 25, My Birthday

On January 25, 2012, I turned another year older. I had applied for sick leave because I was not feeling well. I had runny nose, headaches, and sore throat remnants from the sickness I got the day before. But everything went well, after I had some rest and water therapy (I'm afraid to take medicine). By dinner time I was ready to greet my friends who went over to our house for a little birthday celebration.

We've prepared home made pork humba and sotanghon, pork sisig (from Monterey), chopsuey (Paeng's Resto) and lumpia (Lai-Lai Garden), chocolate moist cake (Sweet Cravings). Thanks to Earl, Joven and Nice for bringing in one length chocolate cake roll and 1 layer butterscotch cookies from Goldilocks as birthday present.

As you can see no seafoods were served because until now people in Iligan City are still afraid to eat fish, squid or any other salt water foods, because of typhoon Sendong.

These simple foods that we had on our table had surely nourished us and everyone had a great time. The gang went home after midnight.

Soon there will be another bundle of joy, an angel, an addition to our family. When that time comes another portion of our monthly budget will be allotted to our new baby.

Keith's Angry Bird Cake

Keith, my friend's nephew had celebrated his 8th birthday. And because kid's are so addicted with angry birds, he had a cake also inspired by Angry Birds. Isn't it cute? A 1-layer fondant cake made by Sweet Cravings.

Sweet Cravings by Lanie had definitely improve it's art. Congrats Lanie! and Happy Birthday Keith.

Chicken Salad

Have you tasted the Chicken Macaroni Salad of Greenwich? I did and is tasted well for me. And because of that I even made my own version of macaroni chicken salad on New Year's Medya Noche. And it tasted good as well... lol beginner's luck I believe, because it was really my first time. I'm only good in eating but never in the kitchen. lol.

Meet Dumbo

Do you know Dumbo?

Well according to wikipedia, Dumbo is an American animated film produced by Walt Disney in 1941. Jumbo, Jr. is always ridiculed because of his big ears and cruelly nicknamed as Dumbo. But later on, Dumbo discovered that he is capable of flying using those big ears wings.

This Dumbo stuffed toy can be found hanging at the passenger backseat, so that every time Xye will ride with us, he can play with it. But unfortunately, Dumbo is not his type. lol...

Walking on Sunshine

I thought it will take sometime before my little prince can walk on his own. I was a little insecure on his 1st birthday because babies with same age as his can already walk before they turned 1 but not for Xye.

He was afraid to walk on his own and will settle with crawling instead. But before he turned 14-months old he did showed us that he can already walk on his own. Yep! Hubby and I were really happy to see him walking towards us when we got home that day.

The photos below was taken on January 13, 2012 morning, he was walking towards me. Obviously, I was the one taking the shots. lol..

For Kid's Style:

Xye is wearing an NBA inspired sleeveless shirt that I have bought at SM CDO, Carter's Brown Short (an ukay find), and an Ipanema slip-on (a hand me down from Alexa).

Playing with the DVD Player

When I arrived home the other day and checked out what's the latest photos in the camera I saw these series of pictures. Xye was actually playing the DVD Player, he was pushing the power button ONs and OFFs and he even climbed and and stepped on the stool to reach the player.

he managed to look at the camera before doing his purpose why he climbed up the stool

there goes the right thumb pushing the button
look! the DVD logo had appeared in the TV screen after the player had been switched "ON"
now using his left thumb...
the DVD player had switched "OFF"
See this little guy is indeed exploring his surroundings.

After this incident, I told his yaya to refrain from placing anything (stool or chair) near the DVD and TV sets that allows him to climb and to this things again, because he might fall down and injure his tiny body.

Mama & Xye

The weather was great so it's great to spend sometime outside the apartment too. And also it's great to have a mother and son photo taken. Thanks to hubby for taking the snap.
