Lego love

Over the past few weeks I have been obsessing about Lego. I cannot wait for Rocco to play with his very first set! I remember when I was a kid, I played with my brother's Legos. I vividly remember Duplo sets and I know he had this gas station set. It was really an awesome toy and how I wished we were able to keep it. But then again, who the hell was thinking of the future and preserving? Definitely not us! But at least the consolation was we were still able to pass it on to our you ger cousin, who was very creative and would turn these blocks into makeshift guns, hahah!

So anyway, back to my obsession. As I scoured the toy stores, I just found out how expensive they are selling Lego. Double the price compared to the price in Canada! Goodness. I will definitely not buy here! But one thing's for sure. For Rocco's 2nd birthday, the theme will definitely be LEGO. Here are the adorable designs that I have seen and I cannot wait!!!!

Oh My Sweetness!

It's not everyday that you really get to do what you really love doing.  There are times when something else comes your way and you tend to deviate from your passion.  I am just glad that I have been given the opportunity to go back to my passion.  Thanks to the arrival of my son.  He inspired me to go back to baking.  I have gone back to the kitchen and have been experimenting on cupcake and cake pops to be more specific.  Since I have been getting inquiries and orders, I have decided to start a small business and finally had the time to create a page in facebook so it's easier for everyone.  

Thank you everyone for all the support, especially to my hubby who's always encouraging me!

Oh c'mon!

I have nothing against recycling gifts.  Sometimes, it is inevitable that people will give the same thing or something that you are not fond of and you choose to keep it for 'future use.'   This is what recycling is (probably to me and a lot of you out there).  However, I am just so amazed how people tend to take it literally, i.e. giving used items and I mean USED, obviously USED (sigh!) items! It's such an insult to the receiver and tells a lot about the one giving the gift.

My point?  Just give cash/ a GC if you have no idea what to give or if you don't have any money or you are not willing to spend, just don't give.   That's way, way better!

Sleeping arrangements

My husband and I sleep with our son. In our bed.  Yes, he sleeps in between us, beside me or beside my hubby.  I'm pretty sure that some people will vehemently disagree with this type of sleeping arrangement and others will be able to relate with us. 

 I am aware of the dangers and took the necessary precautions, especially when he was a baby and was still not able to roll over.  During his first month he slept in the crib, beside our bed.  However when I discovered breastfeeding him using the side lying position, he found his way more in our bed, beside me and the hubby slept on the floor (poor him, but parenthood is like that, you sometimes gotta sacrifice).  It was easier that way because I was able to rest better.  As he grew older, we did try to make him sleep in his crib, but again, he would wind up sleeping with us when he wakes up for feeding during the ungodly hours.  It was easier that way and everyone was happy and got better sleep. This made us re-arrange our bedroom (for the nth time), pushing the bed against the wall (we placed some padding on the wall, too!) and we also bought a bed rail from Safety first that we attached to the edge of our bed.  I'm also a light sleeper, so I am easily awaken by any movement or noise.

This sleeping arrangement is working for us and we are not looking at changing it any time soon.  We don't believe that this will hamper our son's independence, as others see it that way.  There are a lot of ways to teach one's kid independence and surely sleeping arrangement isn't the only way.  I can attest to that because my brother and I used to sleep with mom beside us and we grew up just fine.

My husband and I are enjoying this moment, because we know that there will come a time that he will not want to sleep beside mom and dad anymore.  I just hope that people will respect our decision and not impose on their beliefs.  Respect.  To each his own.    

Party Pictures

Sharing with you some of the pictures from the party by Ibaby Photography. I just got the basic package, which was for P3000.   I loved how the pictures turned out, although I wish we had more family pics.
