Baby Wiggle DIY Indoor Photo Shoot

I have had this little blog since 2010 but it was year 2012 when i became so active of documenting our life – it’s been a place for me to express, reflect, connect with others, create, and document.  I love being able to look back on so many things in my life here on this little corner of the web.  I don’t see myself getting rid of it, I just wish it could stay as one of my priorities… and it hasn’t!  But it’s okay – my goal of 8-10 posts a month probably won’t happen in the coming months – but I will do the best I can, and most importantly, I will try to keep up with the documenting – not just for others to read, but for myself.

In the meantime I’d like to share some of the photos of Baby Wiggle. He is now 9 months old and I must say that he’s so adorable.IMG_1192

Easy DIY Homemade Playdough

With only simple ingredients and few minutes of your time, you can easily make play dough at home for your kids to enjoy.

Image

I love play dough because it keeps little A busy for minutes upon minutes. But sometimes I hate it when it crumbles on the floor and the entire roo .Because of this I stopped buying store-bought playdough. Then, one day when little A was begging me to make a playdough instead.

I searched on to You Tube and  could not believe how easy it was to make playdough in my own kitchen.

Image

Little A had fun picking out the color he wanted, then he continued to play with the dough for hours. It is still a favorite way to spend his play time. Making play dough in your kitchen is easier than you imagined. It saves you money and creates lasting childhood memories.
