GIFT GUIDE FOR INFANTS, TODDLERS, AND CHILDREN

If you’re following a lot of Montessori blogs/ sites/ social media accounts, you must have read a couple of gift guides for Montessori kids already. Since I don’t have a lot of time to blog regularly, I’ll skip that one first (and try to make my own next time) and blog about what you can gift children in general – no matter what parenting style their parents adhere to. See, before I became a parent, everytime we had to attend […]

OUR CHRISTMAS SETUP 2017

2017 is P’s second Christmas, and now that he is already 13 months, I made sure to really include him in our Christmas-themed home. See, fixing our ground floor for Christmas has been my thing ever since I got married, and last year, I made the best decision of fixing it prior to giving birth – because I really had no time to do it anymore when my son came out. This year, I dint have much time to make […]

OUR SON’S FIRST BIRTHDAY!

Sharing a throwback of when our son turned 1. It’s been one beautiful journey, with little bumps here and there for me (mostly breastfeeding-related), but really, it’s been the most wonderful year for me and my husband so far, obviously because our little one is finally in it! We were never big on parties, so even though thoughts of a big party to celebrate crossed our minds, our wish for an intimate and intentional celebration won in the end. We […]

BABY SHOWER #5

So, for the nth time, I thought my last shower was the one before this. But as I was nearing my term, Ms. Jeyme of ONE TREE SOUTH (a PR and EVENTS company) contacted me and told me she wanted to give me a baby shower! Because I was almost due when she contacted me, I told her it would probably be safer to hold the shower after birth, so we set the date to November 20. It turned out to be a few days shy of […]

BABY SHOWER #4

Just got home from another baby shower! After Baby Shower #3 was over, we really thought that was it. And then last week, my sister-in-law told my husband that she plans to throw us a baby shower for my husband’s side of the family, and if we still had time for it. We all met up in the afternoon, and we were surprised that my sisters-in-law even decorated my in-laws’ place for the shower. My mom-in-law was telling us how […]

BABY SHOWER #3

Just when I thought the baby showers were over, I came home one Sunday night with a surprise from our “Diksyonaryo Family”. Diksyonaryo ATBP. is a non-government organization lead by Lia Manalac-Del Castillo. We are all volunteers of her organization and have gone around the country to give dictionaries, other books, and school supplies to different communities. Today, Diksyonaryo focuses more on its Book Mobile project, literally a mobile library that hopes to drive across the country to spread the […]

BABY SHOWER #1

I’ve shared Baby Shower #2 first, and now that the photos (and video) are here, I can finally share our Baby Shower #1. Whee! I finally got the photos of our Baby Shower #1, organized by my good friend Mishy, coordinated by another good friend Lia, and styled by another good friend Sheryl! This group is a funny bunch! Some of them are friends from college, some from volunteer work (we’ve gone from up North to Sulu and Basilan!), and […]

BABY SHOWER NUMBER 2

We had our second (and last) baby shower today! I’d love to share our first one but I’m still waiting for the photos. 🙂 Anyway, this baby shower was prepared by my sister, with the help of our family and friends! Since my husband and I are birders/birdwatchers, my sister thought of the perfect hashtag: #PabloHatchingSoon! And to go with the theme, she partnered with Flora and Fern Styling Company and Mateo’s Restaurant for a forest + birding baby shower theme. […]
