My Poor Wacky Baby

I didn't know my son Ivan had this picture, only lately my sister forwarded it to me.  This was taken when he was 8 months old (he is turning 3  this coming June 26).  Now I remember it, taken about 2 summer's ago when we went on swimming in a private resort just near our place.  So it was my brother in-law who pinched his cheeks.  My poor baby! was it because he had those not-so chubby cheeks that my BIL got fascinated with?  And he didn't even cried because I heard no one cried then.

How excited for this one, coming soon! A D.I.Y. Sqwishland Virtual Pet .This cool product lets you design your very own Ultra Rare Sqwishlander. Using the special included code you can post your creation to your own personal gallery and use the social networking tools to get other people to vote for their favorite design.

Ivan will surely love to have this one as he is fond of making his own creations even at very young age   As a meticulous mom, I want toys for my son that are entertaining and educational as well.  This will also be a perfect belated birthday gift for him.  Might as well for this coming Christmas.

This is my contest entry for Pinayads: Sqwishland Contest .  For detailed mechanics on this giveaway click here

Second Week in School

Ivan's second week of schooling were likewise without much fuss.  Everyday he'll wake up at exactly 9 o'clock, drink milk from his feeding bottle (hu!hu!hu!) I can't wean him yet from the bottle. Take a bath, dressed up and off we go to school.  Sometimes if he'll wake up earlier than usual there will be time to watch Dora and Spongebob on TV.

This week they already wear uniform.  Mommygiay is excited on the very first day seeing Ivan in his school uniform.  My baby is a grown-up already.

First Day of School

June 6 marks the day Ivan formally enters school.  It will be a new world for him, new faces, new challenges.

His new school is just located within the village.  Smart Kids Integrated School (B89 L25 Ph4 Villa de Calamba, Lamesa, Calamba City, Laguna), owned and managed by Ms. Margie Almazan

This will be the door he will enter for his schooling for the next 10 months.

Used to be his school service in going to his toddler class last month, now we just take a tricycle ride.  The school is not really far from home but I think will be tiring for Ivan to walk going there.
 Recess time: enjoying his Dutch Mill yoghurt milk and biscuits.  That his usual "baon" to school.  Lately, after his school hours he is requesting me to rush home because he wanted to take his "mimi" (milk).

Watch for my next post, Ivan will start wearing his school uniform next week.  Mommy giay is excited to see him in his new suit.  My neighbor friends as well would like to know how he will look like in his school polo, shorts and matching black shoes.
