8 Months update

Oh dear! I have to keep up with the dates as well as our growing baby.  I don't know where the time goes, however, if they are just around? I'm pretty sure I couldn't keep up with it.

I have so many things in mind that I need to accomplish before winter comes, yet none of them were truly finished at all. I don't want to get stressed out as it will affect the supply of my milk that I've been giving to our 8 months old.

Oh wait!! This isn't the blog where I rant my routinely days.Pardon me.

Anyways, 8 months update. There is more developmental stage that has been going on with our infant. He is more independent now, he loves to be awake as much as he can. He adores his Kuya [big brother] even more, plays more with him. His motor skills are developing more and more each week. He can help himself sit, does wobbles still when he sits up. He scotches more rather than crawl using both his knees.

He is more vocal now,  smiles, giggles, laughs and even play more with you.

Tiny Tutor: Letters, Numbers, Shapes & Colors - 4 DVD Set #Review

I was very thrilled that my collection of Educational DVD set will be added when I saw this DVD set online. Knowing that it is also a great potential for my kids to learn basic educations while they are at home.

I received the dvd set in the mail through the USPS without no damage that I was able to use and played the dvd right away.

I played the first video which is the LETTERS, the minute it started my 8 months old son was very attentive and watched the video. I can see his eyes are really watching the video. I checked the DVDs and I don't see any scratch on it. 
Every time I took a picture..the image always interfere..
not sure what makes it..since I am too far from the TV.
The background and the video itself aren't boring. I have noticed that the music that plays in the background while introducing the letters is more alive and sounds energetic and not annoying. The colors are vivid enough that my infant catches what's playing.

I like how the Tiny Tutor comes with the 4 DVD set of early learning about LETTERS, NUMBERS, SHAPES and COLORS. I also like how it is set for early math and reading pattern recognition and has the basic colors that he will learn in a very early day.

My 5 years old son who knows everything about this also likes to watch the video. As I mention, it is not boring that both kept watching until it ends.

Elf Star 12 Pcs Extra Thick Premium High Density Furniture Table Edge & Corner Guard Baby Proofing Bumper Protector - Jumbo Size Value Pack Off White #Review

Whenever I put our 8 months old in his walker and walk around the house like he is some kind of expert I always feel unease because, of the feeling that he might accidentally bump his head in one of those edge corners.

I always want to have those corners protector, hence I don't know exactly which one to get? There are so many competitors and yet I am not sure if the reviews stated in each product were true. So I was hoping to get the opportunity to work for one before I purchase more.

I'm glad that I was able to have the prospect to review about one of the baby proofing. I received the product in the mail through the USPS. It's in great condition, I don't see any signs of damage due to the shipping that I was able to use and baby proof the house, as well as examine the product right away.

It comes with 12 Pcs Extra Thick Premium High Density Furniture Table Edge & Corner Guard Baby Proofing Bumper Protector - Jumbo Size Value Pack Off White. I don't see any instructions and known the reasons why. It is very easy and simple to use the product.

Though I have the hardest time of taking the tape that would connect the protector to the object, after a couple of tries I manage to figure it out. It is very thin so you have to be very careful when you peel if off. Then you have to stick the tape to the protector.

The extra thick size of the product makes me do feel so comfortable, I tried to bump my forehead [YES to make sure it works] and the thickness of the foam surprises me. Don't feel any sharp there now and whenever you touch that portion too, feels truly soft and smooth.

I am happy with the bumper protector and I am glad that I was able to tried it before I put my money in it.

7 Months and counting!!!

I am way behind on my monthly update with our son. But our son's growth and development is way beyond our expectations.

In about a month, the developmental stage of our 7 months is quite fascinating. He started to finally eat baby food 2 weeks after the date he turned 7 months. I do have problems with constipation because it's very common for exclusively breastfed baby to get constipated as what I've read online.
I baked him an apple pie from scratch, for Caleve's 7 Monthsary  
There are so many new things that our son discovered on his own. He can maneuver the walker like a pro. He knows what is the difference of his toys. He pays attention to the music, letters and other things around him.

He is more attentive to his surroundings, to the new sounds, he pushes himself forward and backward, and he can sit up with support.

He giggles, pout, smiles, laugh and play more than before. Such a jolly little one. He gets bigger and taller too for his age. He can wear 12 months clothing, knowing he is only 7 months old.

Does this mean I have to take out all the 12 months now and starts buying my older son more clothing, for sooner it won't take long that him and his little brother are going to wear the same size.

Complete Electroni Drumset

My son was showing off his new discovered talent to the nurse who visited us today. I never noticed at all that he started to tap on something to play the rhythm of the Jingle Bell song. I was very surprised to see him showing his new skills to the lady.

My son has the beat, he does get the right beat of the song and starts doing it multiple times and in the back of my mind, I was thinking I think it is time to involve our son to a musical instrument. 
I guess its time and he is ready for this new challenge in his life. I was thinking of getting him a complete electronic drumset that I found on this website called

photo not mine
It is quite expensive though, but knowing what could it give to our son would something a money can't buy. I have to think over and over before getting him this one. I have to consider the space where I can put the set at home. Since we don't have a huge house, it would be too crowded if I'll put this in their bedroom.

Whatever my decision would be, someday I'll definitely going to consider getting our son this set.

BzzAgent #Review - The fun of using BIC XTRA-Fun #2 Pencil

The minute my son saw the pencils, he was too excited to use them. He loves the different colors and of course he can use his favorite color which is green and purple.. I'm glad that it brings smiles and excitement to the kids knowing that their pencil at school would be colorful now and not dull.

The #2 pencil is dark enough that my son doesn't need to exert more force in order to make his writing visible. The eraser is also good, don't need to use a lot in order to erase the writing.

Thank you BIC XTRA-Fun #2 pencils, because of your new and innovative ways of making the pencil it gives more excitement towards my son the fun of using pencils in writing.

Sunday - A visit to Kinzua Beach, Warren PA

It was Saturday afternoon when my SILs came for a quick visit. I don't know exactly where they from but it was so nice of them to come by and say hello. While I was nursing my 7 months old, they were outside with my Mahal and my son.

I've heard and they planned on paying a visit to a beach after the picnic at the resource center where we are invited to come.

Sunday lunch time, my family and I headed to the said picnic and there we've seen Aunt Jessie, Lola Eunice and Shelly. YES! We are the last one to come,'s not easy to have 2 small kids that you have to do all the work and preparation.

Anyways, after we filled our stomachs with the delicious food they prepared, went home to meet up Shelly to ride with us and headed our way to Kinzua Beach. It was our first time to visit the said beach, well except for Mahal.
They have fun in the water...
They put up a tent there last year and that's where he found out about the Beach. It's Allegheny River because we are too far away from the sea salt water.

Moreover, after travelling for at least an hour, we finally reach our destination. I took few photos for souvenir and hopefully to take the kids again next year. Well, when the water won't be contaminated with E. coli  due from the bacteria that comes from human and animal waste and often rises in waterways due to runoff from heavy rains.

It was fun, though be arriving late afternoon. We were having fun, the water is quite cold but manageable. Short but I guess it's worth it.

small water falls on the side of the road.....our quick stop to the Kinzua Dam
We hit the road after and stop over to the Kinzua Dam. The husband and our 5 years old walked closer to that Dam so explore while Shelly, 7 months infant [who is napping] and I stayed where we parked

Halloween Minions pumpkin and more candies

This was last 2015 Halloween pumpkin carving. No! We did not join a contest, but this is what we made last year. I figure out that we can carve something that our son would adore.

So when we look for a pumpkin, we found this awesome shape that would fit my idea, the minions. Since they were so popular and our son likes this crazy, cute little thing and so we carved them.

I didn't buy the pattern this time, since we have the carving tools. All I did was to explored online for a FREE pattern and with the help of Mr. G. I come up with a few patterns.

Save me money, and I have varieties of patterns to choose from. I started doing it since I found out that there are more awesome FREE pattern designs online than buying one in the store.

Here they are after an hour of carving, which by the way our son helped us emptied the pumpkin and save the seeds. We have our Minions Halloween pumpkin.
quite fascinating when you lit them and put them in the dark.

more candies given to our son from our neighbors...
