It’s your doctor’s appointment today  and we are surprised  that you doubled your weight since the day we took you from the hospital. I thank God for blessing me with abundant milk so I can feed your demand. You are now 5 kg and 55 cm long. Praise God!! Indeed breastmilk is truly a liquid love.

And speaking of  love, your eyes are open so much longer during the day. You love to talk,smile and respond to us. Your smiles makes our heart jump. It’s funny how daddy keeps on asking you to smile all the time. And you are so generous to give us more and more of them.

You love your bath time and you are very content with the time daddy is spending with you. That’s why he is so delighted bathing you whenever he’s off.

You slowly have made your way into 3-6 month clothes and most of your little newborn clothes are not fit anymore. But I am still wearing it to you because I find it so cute seeing you so botchog in your clothes. Silly mom!!

As much as I don’t want you to grow fast but your kuya A is so excited to play with you. He keeps on asking me if he can play with now because he wants to share his toys. He’s been calling you little Ben 10 while daddy A is Kevin and mommy is Gwen of course he is the Ultimate Ben 10. Yes, anak your kuya A thinks that we are a family of Ben 10 clan. In fact he’s insisting that his 5th birthday will be Ben 10 theme. Oh by the way, your kuya A is suggesting to have Baby Mickey Clubhouse for your first birthday. I hope you don’t mind if he is now planning your birthday. Haha! But do you know that he can’t sleep without you inside our room. I nearly melted on the floor when he said that “you are his best friend “.

The Alphabet Eating Monster Puppet

Happy New Year everyone!! First of all I want to thank all of my readers for your tremendous support. I so appreciate you coming over for a visit and leaving such kind thoughts and compliments.

For my first post for this year I wanted to share how we made our uber cute puppet. Before the winter break starts I received email from little A’s school .Each student are encouraged to be imaginative and creative. Their school will held an interclass competition called ” Fantastic World of Puppet”. The competition is open from Foundation Stage to Year 6 and the best three puppets will be awarded prizes and certificates.

We were given an option to choose from sock puppet,stick puppet,glove puppet,shadow puppet or puppet with recycle materials. Since I don’t have talent of stitching I chose na lang the easiest.

I needed to find some easy and cheap craft  when I came across a picture of  “tissue box monsters” on pinterest. That gave me idea that this is what I am looking for.

Of course it was just a picture and no how-to guide so I decided to share how I made mine.

Materials:

  • Egg carton
  • empty tissue box
  • paint
  • double sided tape (I used the foam style)
  • googly eyes
  • White paper
  • Glue

Instructions:
First you will need to paint your box. I used acrylic paint.
After it dries, cut out jagged teeth with the white paper  ( I chose the empty Krispy Kreme box since we made it after New year’s eve) and glue or tape them inside the box mouth.
Then you need to cut out the egg carton to make the eyes, glue them to the top. I painted mine to look like eyes..

Presenting our Alphabet Eating Monster

Simple and cheap to make, yet it looks great!
