Splurge in Memories: Mascots For Your Special Parties!

        I remember when I was a little girl, I was in love with the Disney animation Aladdin. At night before I went to sleep, I would often dream about personally meeting these characters and being BFFs with them. But what hurt was that I knew that it could only be a dream. I know all kids are like this up to a certain age. They idolize certain characters so much that they want these characters to be real. So imagine the delight of a child when they see a certain character come to life and actually interact with them? That, dear parents, is priceless!

        Here is my little celebrant during her birthday, trying to process if what she's seeing is actually a familiar happy snowman that she only sees in the screen... Who is it?....

Rain's 3rd Birthday Party: A Royal Ball

        For two straight years, Rain has been a Sesame Street baby. So her first 2 birthdays has been Sesame Street-themed. But as she turns 3, (and with a little influence from her mama hehehe) she has turned her attention to all things princess-y! And as always, my ever dependable mom-in-law transformed her backyard into a Disney Princess Fantasy land! I must say she really did an excellent excellent job! So I wanted to share it with you! 

Presenting... Rain's Royal Ball: A Costume Party!

Swaddle Designs Available in the Philippines!

        I vividly remember using up what's left of my mental abilities to store photographic memories of the step-by-step process of swaddling, the day after I gave birth. The lactation nurse at The Medical City seemed to be the only one who could do it perfectly. Not even the other nurses could do it as neat and as snug as she did. So every time we would call for her to swaddle, I would try to record the step-by-step in my mind. But somehow it still wasn't the same. I was starting to think she was magical! Haha!

New Palmolive Naturals' New Look!

        Or is it just me or do all girls get excited to use a brand new shampoo or conditioner? Girls are weird. And I'm one of those weirdos. Admittedly. Hahaha! So imagine how excited I was to take a bath as soon as I received the new generation of Palmolive Naturals shampoo and conditioner! 5 new variants for me to try, and all in their new sleek look!

Happy Birthday, Rainbow! :')

To our little girl who may be a future doctor...

Or a future TV or Movie star...

Or perhaps a commercial model...

To our little girl who may also be a Rockstar...

Or whatever you want to be when you grow up.

Whatever that might be, you will always be our little fairy!

You will always be Daddy's little girl

And Mommy's little Rainbow :-)

I wish we could keep you at this stage forever... but I guess you have to grow up :')
