Homemade Knitted Baby Headbands


After years of learning about how to use the needles of knitting, and able to knit my whole family their Christmas Stockings, some hats I finally am proud to say that I have again accomplished these adorable girls headbands.

I've seen my late Mother in law knit this and was very curious to make my own. I know for sure that I can share this amazing headband with my nieces back in the Philippines.

After at least 2 that I knitted, I become so PRO that I never looked at the pattern whenever I make one. So, here they are the finished product of my labor. I have little to send back home and can't wait for my Balikbayan box to be pick-up so it will be on its way before another Christmas come.

#teether Necklace and Bracelet #Review

 
We all know that there are so many different designs and kinds of Teether in the marketplace. One of them is a necklace and bracelet Teether. They are round and a 100% Food-Grate Silicone, made intentionally safe for infant to use as a Teether. 

I posted this amazing product in my Instagram and one of a mother's concern that also brought into my attention is how safe is the product be? Since they are small but not tiny silicone bids, there might be a possibility that an infant would chew and swallow it.

I would say, this is one question that is tough to answer until it happens. I would not say it might not and I am sure that the company created this Teether to be stronger and safer for infant's use, however parents should always supervise when this product is in use. I would assume that I will only let my son use this Teether only if I'm wearing the necklace and bracelet, in short, it's either I am carrying him or he is sitting on my lap.

While examining the necklace and bracelet I have noticed that the strap that was use is very durable. I stretched the strap as much as I can see how far it goes and I am impressed that it didn't break. I followed the instructions before using the Teether and tried chewing the bids, I'm amazed that it didn't come apart.

I would say that the Teether Necklace and Bracelet  is ideal for mothers who are seeking for a good Teether for their infant. Safe only if you supervise while the product is in use as well as soothing for infant's gum.

3 months already? Where does time go?

4th day of the month of March came and I have asked myself, where does time go? Why is it that it goes so fast the first thing we knew we have a newborn the next time they turned 3 months. 

He went to his 2 month check-up and glad to know that our bundle is very healthy. Now, we have to wait when he reaches 4 months for his next physical examination. I'm so thrilled for this month as his vision is getting clearer now, and by this month I can determine what does our baby needs whenever he cry.

He can now sit-up with a support on his back, no more wobble head and definitely responses with his coos, smile and frown whenever I talk or make faces with him. He can stand on his two tiny strong legs whenever I held him up. He drools a lot recently too, and knows about how to make tiny bubbles. He holds and plays with both his hands, starts grabbing things in front of him, and he is also fascinated to watch his feet as well as to see himself in the mirror.

I don't see more rashes on his face now as well as cradle cap. No more paranoia feeling for me.

3 Teether Toys #Review

 
My son just turned 3 months recently and few more months he will start having baby teeth. Before that happens, there will be signs of drooling and gumming as well as biting or chewing  pretty much of anything stage. During my older son's time while he was teething, I'm thankful that he never experience such pains and being so fuzzy all the time. The next thing we knew there were 2 teeth coming in on his front. We can only hope the same thing for our second child, even though each kid acts and experience differently. 

I am thankful that I have the right baby stuffs in hand, ready whenever our second child starts teething. I received 3 Teether Toys from beabies.com to review. The product came in the mail through USPS and the packaging is ideal, I don't see any signs of damage, happy and content that I can review and used the product right away.

The Teether toys were bigger than I expected, I love the 3 different colors as well as 3 different designs it consists. It also came with a very safe and silicone chain that would help hold the Teether or a pacifier on to the baby's clothes. There are train, car and elephant latex, a free of BPA, PVC, Phthalates, Vinyl, Nitrosamines, Rubber, Lead, Cadmium and heavy metals. Tasteless, I can tell cause I have tried it.  Odorless cause I also smelled the Teethers.

I followed the instructions before I first use the Teethers. I washed it in hot water, even boiled the water to ensure that it is safe and clean before I hand it into our son. It is also a dishwasher and freezer safe (top rack only, as recommended).

Overall, I would say that the 3 Teether Toys are safe to use for your infant as long as you have followed the care instructions and cautions. Parents are advised to supervise when this product is in use for our infant's security.

My #ScarGel #Review

 
I have some scars all over my body while growing up. I was all over the place and enjoying my childhood days, and way back then we don't have those expensive fancy technologies [which nowadays mostly kids play] that would keep us happy and have fun. 

Anyways, I have scars that I don't mind keeping and there are some scars that just need to go in order to aim that flawless skin. Don't blame me, I'm just trying to be a woman here, hehehehe. Don't know how to fade it away without spending a fortune in the laser technology and so I'm researching home remedies, however it usually takes time.

I'm thankful that I have the opportunity to work on a Scar Gel product. I received the product for free in exchange of my unbiased review. Of course, I need to ensure that what I experience here would be a great value to those who seeks for a better product, rather than mounting something that is not real.

Moreover, the packaging is just right. The product came in the mail unharmed, a good sign that I can use the product right away as well as a positive impact to the seller. They manage to secure and protect their product in order to reach the buyer's place safe.

Scar Gel can be purchased through their website. When I opened the product and tried it, the first thing I noticed is the tea smell. It isn't bad at all, the color of the gel is brownish and when I applied it to my scar on my wrist I felt cold and dry's faster no greasy feeling whatsoever. Although the smell of the tea remains, it doesn't bother me at all. And by the way, you'll only need to use a small amount of gel too.


Now, it says that the amount of time of use will vary depending on age and severity of the scar. I will come back here to update after weeks of using the scar gel towards my very long time scar.

Plan of fishing this year

After this icy weather we experience for months and months, we all get excited whenever we feel the temperature outside goes warmer. Even, if it won't last that long, we need to remember that after winter, Spring will surely on its way to give us all a much better weather. Due to the freezing weather, we frequently decided to be in our premises. Others occupy themselves by working out, playing and indoor game with their family and some are planning for the upcoming warm days. 


I've been here in the US for almost 7 years and as much as I would like to try fishing, it seems like my husband doesn't have enough time to take us. Due to the busy days he'll spend at his work during Summer, he hardly has enough time to get home to take us fishing. What about weekend, you may ask? Hubby works at night shift in one of the fast food to earn extra tips and Sunday? Well, this is the only day of rest that he can stay home on his pajama all day long. I wouldn't blame him if he chooses to be lazy during once a week.


Anyways, mentioning about going fishing is what I would like to accomplish this year, at least. We might need another fishing rod, therefore searching for one is what I start doing in order to have time. I found the Tenkara fly fishing rods at AvidMax. Reading about the review from the buyers gives me an insight of the capabilities this rod could give us. I know nothing much about fishing rod, and so reading reviews from others is the best way I could get a great deal.

Product Review: Kandoo Hand wash Soap

We are now currently experiencing colder weather and yes soon enough winter season will be here. It's when our little ones get sick so easily due to the bacteria that passed through one person to the other in school and at home.

Parents are trying so hard to prevent this from happening, however, there are just times that it's beyond our effort and power our little ones do get sick. It's not bad at all, because we all know that their immune system is fighting for it to make our kids feel better after.

Nevertheless, there are also different methods to prevent from spreading sickness around the house. It's when you wash your hands with a nice moisturizing hand soap in the bathroom or in the kitchen, and also to help that snot from spreading around we need to wipe our nose and not just leave it running.

When I received the product samples in the mail to try, the first thing that I've noticed is how nice the fragrance of what's inside the box. Little did I know the hand soap was leaking which makes all the smell coming from. Good thing it only hits more portion of the other side of the box and not spilled in the entire product. I used it and put it in our bathroom, my son loves how berry it smells like which he kept telling me his hands smells so fresh. You also use a small amount of the hand soap as it has already created more foam, you can really save a lot.

I would say, I am confident enough to recommend this product to mothers who are looking for the right product for their kids. Soft, without any harmful ingredients and most of all it saves you a lot.

And don't forget to visit Kandoo online and follow their social media for an exclusive offers about the product.

Too darn cute @ 2 months

Yup, it's been a while since our son turns 2 months old. Time flies so fast, and as our his late Lola Judy says, they grew up too fast. There are so many unexpected and sudden loss that happens in my husband's family. A birthday celebration as well as a death of my beloved Mother in law. She was a very wonderful person inside and out. Amazingly wonderful with an unselfish heart. She will be missed and we all loss, such an amazing woman in our life. I guess, that terrible thing happens to an amazing person. 

However, life must go on and even though it is very hard to step forward, we have to do it as there are people who still needs us on earth. Life is so short, it's our time to live it to the fullest. We also need to remember that there is life after death. Might so easy to say, yet so difficult to do.


A week after the tragedy, we went to our son's 2 month doctor's appointment and, other than the cold, which was passed on by his older brother, our son is one healthy chunky [knock on the wood]. No vaccines as we decided not to give our children due to the experience we have with our oldest. Caleve is now weighs 12.9 lbs from 9.13 lbs a month ago.
