little milestones

sss ta = star
mun = moon
ka = car
ppzz = please
oo ppzz = octopus
aa pun = airplane

he can point at us when we ask him to point at dadi, mami, gor gor, grandpa and grandma

he blinks his eyes when we say "blink blink your eyes"

index finger out and say "goo" when we ask him to put up his thumb and say good

he loves putting his little feet into our slippers (which are way to big for him) and walks around the house like a penguin

he turns around and around like a humpty dumpty when we ask him to turn around

he loves vegetables and fruits more than meat

so far
he had
cantaloupe melon

the other night,
he had his first bite ever of fig..
and he just couldn't stop!
he couldn't wait for me to feed him and reach for the fork himself to pick up the figs!

he is cheeky!

to write down reminders, jot down ideas, doodle....

so sad to find out that they (the le petit prince ones) are not available anymore...

on the way to the playground

one jumping bean

the boys

when i have my quiet moments to myself.....

this is what i will do.......

getting out all my stationary 
jotting down things to do,
things to remember,
inspirational quotes.... with my color pens,
adding stickers, masking tape, sticky labels
to my moleskin weekly planner
(another must have item in my bag...  
cuz my memory no longer serves me well,
especially after having two little monsters... *lol*)

the other night,
i finally decided to use the masking tape i got from our trip to nagoya...
beautiful prints indeed!

in particular this one....

i am so in love with it!

Friday, September 22, 2017


new member to my collection of pouches from my favorite shop for little people...
liberty print, wintry color palette...

new home to my daily essentials....

and it so happens to match my new lipstick
and the masking tape i got from our last trip to nagoya

i had difficulty with choosing which lipstick case to go with the lipstick...
looking at the little man standing next to me,
i asked him to pick for me
and he picked this one...
which ended up going so well with my new pouch!
good pick little bb!!!

one of the must have items in my pouch


a candy or two
when i feel i am running low on sugar (i.e. hungry)

this particular one is from little bb

what i wanted...

was a bookshelf
...  large enough to house all of little bb's books
...  deep enough to provide shelter to bigger sized books
...  sturdy enough so that the middle level or back won't go out of shape
...  with a sliding door to (i) hide the mess behind and (ii) show case our current reads

dream come true when i saw this shelf from funny workshop

i am one happy soul!
make it two
cuz little bb loves it too
actually make it three
bbb loves sitting on the lowest level + he inherited big brother's old shelf... 
which means he has his own shelf which he can get books easily!

lost & found: found

he found his favorite book of the moment....
lost & found by oliver jeffers

i am secretly glad that bbb hasn't ripped the pop-ups apart yet....

rare and luxurious moments

when one is out
and the other is napping

i took out my precious little treasures
just to look at them, touch them
and re-arrange them

then of course
the urge to make these crocheted frames

little milestones

he can express himself quite well now

he wants book
i point at a book and he turns his head
repeat until i ginally got the book he wants
shows a big grin

he said  "CA"
means cards or car

he loves to climb up his highchair 
and slide down as if it is a real slide

when he walks around the house barefooted,
his feet make these loud sound
"clap clap clap"
as it a giant is walking around

his current favorite book is eric carle's around the farm sound book..
he will laugh and giggle upon hearing
the woodpecker goes "tuk tuk tuk tuk tuk"
the butterfly shuttering its wings (he will moves his arms around as if he is flying)
the hungry caterpillar goes crawling
