Halloween Party No More

Last month I plan Iris to join trick or treat fun with my little sister Kiana not only that I wanted her to experience the fun but also me to experience it. Believe me! I'm already 30years old but I never had a chance to attend such event. Poor me! LOL. We already had a custome for her(see her header photo in brown fairy?) That's what I want her to wear during the party. That fairy custome was given by her godmother to her last August when they visit Bacolod.
..but later this month I decided not to attend halloween party anymore. Aside from I don't have budget to buy Kiana's custome, Iris is not feeling well for almost 3days already. Also, I thought that Iris could not enjoy it much because she's only a year and a month old. I want her to experience it when she knows how to really interact with other kids, I was also thinking that she might get scared of other kids in horror custome. Maybe next year when Iris is 2years old we'll join this fun.

Happy Halloween!

Pink Bear and Orange Crabby

Hello welcome to another Toy Stories story. This week me and my rainbow's share is Pink Bear stuff and Orange Crabby the crab. I actually had plenty of pillows like crabby before I give birth to Iris. It is sort of my collection. I also have collection of bears in different colors and size. I bought pink bear intented for Iris. If i remember it right I bought this one Dec. 2010.
I think I already feature some of the photo above in my other blog. I love this photos of Iris. I really find her cute in here, isn't it? :P and of course I super love the hot pink bear and colorful orange crabby.

A little trivia for Bear stuff toy..or is commonly known as Teddy Bear.
The name Teddy Bear comes from former United States President Theodore Roosevelt, whose nickname was "Teddy". The name originated from an incident on a bear-hunting trip in Mississippi in November 1902, to which Roosevelt was invited by Mississippi Governor Andrew H. Longino. More story from WIKI.

My Joy and Happiness

Today is Iris 13th month in this crazy yet beautiful world. More than that, it is an amazing journey of motherhood for me. Ups and downs and all..thank GOD because I was able to survive it all! Looking back, worse that I experience as a mom was when Iris has this kind of skin desease/allergy of sort. It was really heart breaking to see her in that situation. Aside from that also financially draining becuase her medicine is very expensive. I remember I tried to ask help from his father but as expected to no avail. Anyway, those we're just water under the bridge. Me and my baby is now fine.

Photo below are my faves in my 13month of motherhood.

Working Baby

Last night after an hour that Iris slept she wakes up and cry. I thought she was crying because my little sister Kiana was beside her. So I wake up Kiana so that she'll transfer to her bed. Still Iris was crying. Maybe she want me to sleep with her so I sleep with her. Still Iris was crying. I ask her if she want to yum yum (meaning she'll drink her milk) her action tells me that no mama I wont drink milk and keep on crying. So I thought she want me to carry her..but still to no avail..she still cry...okay..I keep on thinking what she want so she'll stop crying..ohh..maybe she want her hotdog pillow. nah! she won't accept it! she throw it. okay, so now I understand what she want. As I look in our bed I observe that her fave stuff is not around. I remember Henny. I put Iris on bed even she is crying and get henny her fave stuff in our living room and give it to her. Gotcha! she stop crying after I hand her her Henny. tsk! tsk! tsk! she want Henny beside her. hahaha.

Anyway, this photo is not related to any of the story I have mention above. I just love this photo when I bring Iris in my workplace. When I am not so busy in my work I tag her with me. She would just sit there (jny my co-worker's chair )and keep on doodling in keyboard. When she's done with it she'll get the ballpen and doodle with it.

Pink dress she is wearing is from Mommy Lo's  pretty daughter Dindin. Thank you Mommy! you might want to visit Din's Fashion blog. Since it's pink, of course its perfect for Pink Friday and Pink Saturday meme.

Happy weekend everyone!

My Rainbow

Thanks God! after two days of fever my rainbow Iris is now fine and fun to play with. She's back to her normal babbler, funny and "likot" mode. That would mean also that Mama Shengkay can sleep well at night as my baby sleep well too.

Anyway, I feel nostalgic of the photo below, Iris was only 3months almost 4months. I always say this everytime I saw my baby "I can't believe am now a mother to this cutie pie baby!" yeah, I still can't believe! Now, I understand those mother who says the joy of being a mom is immeasurable! Indeed! More than anythings else it's my baby who brigthen up my day. She made me smile, inspires me, makes me feel beautiful, strong and forgiving..but sometimes she irritates me too in her kulit and likot mode. Hehehe.but...

..when she made all this funny faces...hmmmm...my heart melts! hahaha. I love you baby talaga!

Shape Sorter Toy

Shopping BagHello everyone! welcome to another edition of Toy Stories hosted by Mommy Jes. Today my share for toy stories is a shape sorter toy. I actually bought this when I was still pregnant with Iris (hindi excited eh no?) hahaha. I think one of the reason is because when I was a baby I never experience this kind of toy that is why I am excited to have this for my baby.
This is what parenting.com says about benefit of shape sorter toy:
Shape sorters are classic toddler favorites, and with good reason: They're a fun challenge. By figuring out how to drop each piece into its proper hole, kids learn to categorize and eventually name shapes (a skill they master around age 2). Between 15 and 18 months, most kids will start to develop the hand-eye coordination and problem-solving skills they need to be able to sort, says Natalie Geary, M.D., a developmental pediatrician in New York City.
How about you? what kind of toys you have for your baby?..

Stripey Orange-y Get Up

Last night Iris has fever and of course the Mama Shengkay is worried and all. I was thinking of briging her to the hospital because she's so hot (body temp. 39). Good thing she keep on asking for water and her milk sad part is after I fed her with her milk she'll vomit.. huhuhu.. 12midnight till 7am I haven't give her milk..only water. I give her paracetamol every 4hours and put cold bimpo in her armpit and forehead so that she'll cool down her body temp. I think she fevered becuase of teething virus. Anyway, she feels better now. Thanks God!

..and of course I was not able to sleep well for the rest of the night and I am so sleepy right now.

Anyway, I'm posting Iris photo which was taken when she was 9months and as always I love my baby's eyes..I remember she was not also feeling well in this photo. She actually had runny nose here but still look lovely (wink!).

Sporty Baby

One of the things I miss when I was schooling was joining extracurricular activities especially sports. I was once a shy and no confident student. Well, I'm still a bit shy now but once in a while I take bolder risk especially when my being a mother is at stake. I'll do anything I could for the best interest of my daughter Iris- after all she only had me in her life.

I believe encouraging our kids to be active in sports is one way of helping them boost thier confident and be friendly. Aside from that we also help them to be healthy. That is why at early age I am exposing Iris on different games that is related to sports like ball games. I bought her ball and my sister Kiana a badminton set for them to play on. Hopefully my sister Kiana will be chosen to play for Badminton in there school but Kiana's first choice of game was football but thier school is only accepting boys. For now, i'll try to search for a promotional coupons and discount vouchers for my sister for her needed sports stuff if she is choosen. As for my baby Iris will just play throw and catch a ball for now.

Hello, Remote Control?

Isn't she cute? my baby is cute! oh please don't disagree..or else..hehehe..

This photo as stated on the picture was April 18 just this year 2011 Iris is almost 7months here. She just woke up when I took this photo. We had television before in my room that is why she has the remote control. During that time anything she hold she put it in her mouth, out of curiosity of course, which of course normal to any baby at this age. She also imagine that it is a cellphone and that we're calling her grandma (my mother) :P. Now that she's a year old she don't eat it she just throw it. (LOL)

Iris in Red

Hello! Hello! Hello! It's a very good Monday in my end of the world. I want to start it off with smile and a bang with my baby Iris in her red Sando. Iris look like a boy here :) This was taken last march 11, 2011 she was 5months and 15days old. I took this photo when I arrive from work (lunch time) it's my routine to take her photo with me or without me. I just love taking her a photo.
Anyway, since I neglected this blog for almost 2months expect old photos from Iris. After all this blog is all about her.

For Iris milestones, 2days after she turn 1year old last Sept. 24 (2011) she was able to walk alone without our assistance. She also has 6teeth now and another 2 is visibly coming out. I am thankful because she has no fever or cough while teething though she has sipon. Oh, I love her appetite! she's not choosy when it comes to food, anything you gave to her she ate it! Very good Anak!..She's a babbler now I must say though we don't understand what she's saying but with her matching action we can relate to her. She has this routine that everytime we change her diaper she want herself to throw her use diaper to trash can, she would cry if we are the one to dispose her diaper. That's good baby! keep it up!
