Andi is 14 months now and is growing so fast, learning a lot of stuff too. She is like a little girl who understand almost everything, except that she does not talk yet. But I am telling you that she knows a way how to let you know what she wants. Since I was not able to update this blog for quiet sometime, i will start from Andi's first Halloween.
Here are some of her pictures:

She rewarded me with her big precious smile. I could not asked for anything more. Making my little angel happy is the most important thing.

She just love to follow and imitate her big sister. She joins her sister in any play activities, even doing the somersault ! She just could not roll her bottom though, but she looks so funny doing that.

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of Boudreaux's Butt Paste. All opinions are 100% mine.
Every mother knows that taking good care of your baby's skin is equal to taking good care of their health and daily needs. The softness of baby's skin always makes you wanted to hug, caress and cuddle to your hearts content. The baby who is comfortable and secure of her mothers love comes out to be a happy baby. That is why we always have to make sure that our baby is comfortable, healthy and received lots of love and attention. All mommies out there wanted to give that to their little ones, but we mommies are only human who makes mistakes. Me for instance, due to so much household chores and stuff running in my mind, I was not able to change for a couple of hours my baby's diaper. When I changed her diaper it has poop on it! From there and then, I know what will happen next. So when I wash her with soap and water, I could see red rashes on her bottom. My poor little angel was crying, I think because she could already feel a little bit of burning at her bottom. I put petroleum on the rashes because I do not have one of those Boudreaux's Butt Paste. I think I need to visit their website, because I heard that they are giving away free sample of Boudreaux's Butt Paste. If I have one of those, my baby will not experienced the same discomfort every time she has a rash. Diaper rash ointment is one of the must have in every mommies medicine cabinet. I have learned it now, just the hard way. So, don't be like me, go check out Boudreaux's Butt Paste website and get that free sample now.
I have also learned that Boudreaux's Butt Paste was specifically formulated by a pharmacist under the direction of respected pediatrician to provide effective diaper rash care. It treats diaper rash and soothes irritated skin, so your baby will not get fussy even though she has diaper rash. For our convenience this comes is different sizes and packaging. You can buy them in flip top cap or handy travel size. Convenient sizes of 1oz, 2oz, 3oz and 4oz tubes, 16oz jar.
Boudreaux's Butt Paste was featured in different magazines and TV shows like; ESPN, Tonight Show, Today Show, Oprah Show and People Magazine.
To all mommies out there who has little angel like me, check out Boudreaux's Butt Paste for your baby's skin.

Since my last post, Andi has reached a lot of milestones. Just this evening, her Dad was trying to video her while walking. Yes, she has started walking at ten months!!! She got 10 teeth, 5 up and 5 down. She is eating mostly solids now, three to five times a day. Her milk intake is the same which is amazing because she is eating solid as well. Sometimes, I wonder where did all those foods go?
We will e celebrating her 1st birthday in a couple of months from now. We are trying to start planning her birthday but does not have any definite plans yet.
I will try to update as much as I can on what is happening on the next few days or months.

Here is Andi at 8 months. She is quiet advance in her development. At eight months, she is standing up and walking (while holding on to something), eating solid three times a day, aside from snacks on the side. She knows how to point into something when she wanted something. She can say Mama, Dada and Ate (big sister).
Here she is.

We are making fun of Andi's reflection at the gravity mirror. Her she is.
The girls having fun at the real piano. It can even teach you how to compose your own song!

Glad that she is developing in a fast pace at the same time worried on all these safety issues thingy around the house.

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of Incendia Health. All opinions are 100% mine.
Abbott Medical Optics, Inc (AMO) a global leader in vision correction invited people to share their experiences on how their life had changed because of improved vision. Now they are announcing the entries and winners of this contest at www.GottaSeeThisNow.com.
Prizes for this iLASIK Video Contest are:
1. Grand prize of $5,000.00
2. HDTV Package worth $2,500.00
3. Flip UltraHD camcorder worth $199.99
This contest has three categories:
1. My Contacts Are Getting In The Way Of My Good Time
2. My Favorite Sport Or Activity Would Be So Much Cooler With Better Vision
3. You Should See Life After The iLASIK Procedure
There will be one grand prize winner and two winners in each category.
I think this iLASIK Video Contest is a good way of letting people share their experiences at the same time educate us on how improved vision could bring a huge benefit in our lives.
Just like for instance, my husband who has a very poor vision with 375 on one eye and 400 on the other, always complains that his eye glasses gets in the way every time he played basketball or any other sports. Having eye glasses give you limited mobility on some activities. He has been thinking of having iLASIK procedure but not so confident about it. Simply because he does not have enough information on this subject and does not know any people who have undergone the procedure. I hope someday, he will have the courage to do it, so I don't have to hear his complaints every time he plays basketball, swimming or any other sports.
I like this idea of a video contest because it will encourage people who have a poor vision to do something about it and to start enjoying things that they love to do.

Andi with the other kids. My husband wanted to get a solo picture of Andi under those flying kites but when the kids saw her sitting in the grass they all run to her and sat beside her.

Andi was so happy seeing those kids running around. She was so excited, so I put her down in the floor or wherever there are few kids playing. Since she does not crawl yet, she was contented touching things she could reach.
This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of Alvin and the Chipmunks. All opinions are 100% mine.
Do you guys still remember Alvin and the Chipmunks? The picture is still so clear in my mind the last time I saw this movie. I was so fascinated, engrossed and entertained by the way these little creatures dance and sing. Never mind the ear piercing voice they have, just watched the way they dance and their choreography. You will be amazed and will make you think, what if there are chipmunks who sing and dance in real life. Would people still be amazed or will they freak out?
This movie gave us a lot of lessons to learn in life. Material things does not last long, fame is not forever, people used others to get what they want and family will always be there behind you to give support and catch you when you fall. This movie also gives a glimpse of the real world of child celebrities where some people exploit and take advantage of their talent. Focused on glamour and greed of record companies who are only interested in generating more profits and cash without any regard on what is happening to their celebrities.
Alvin and the chipmunks is wonderfully fun movie. If you are one of those people who love these creatures, you will be delighted to hear that Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakquel is now available on DVD, Blu-ray and Digital Download! This double pack DVD includes the "The Squeak Along" bonus disc with more music, sing-a-longs and mayhem's. Don't wait any longer
buy it now and have a blast with your kids! Don't forget to visit http://www.munkyourself.com. I have not seen this new movie yet, but I am sure Gabz and Andi will love to watch this movie. Of course not only the kids but their mom and dad too! This will be a great film to watch on our family movie night every Friday!
To all mom and dad out there, don't forget to check out the new Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakquel DVD double pack. I am sure your family will have a great time watching and listening to the chipmunks. Looking for More Munk Mayhem? Simply visit http://www.foxfamilyflicks.com.

Here are some baby proofing tips:
- Andi now sits on her own while playing and grab things that she could reach. Don't forget to get down on your knees and check things that your baby could reach.
- Clean the floor often for small things that she could put on her mouth.
- Put safety gates at the top and bottom of the stairs. I need to purchase this one soon!
- Put latched or safety locked on every cabinets and doors.
- Put breakable things out of reach.
- Put outlet covers. This one is very important!
- Store all cleaning materials, medicines, vitamins, etc on the top cabinet that is out of reach.
- Always put one hand to your baby at all times.

Here are a few things I do to help her feel a little bit better:
- Rub his gum with my clean finger or sometimes I let her chew it.
- Give her a cold teething ring to chew on
- Let her chew a wash cloth, or any clean cloth
Good thing with Andi's teething is that she never had any fever because of that. Some baby's experienced fever and diarrhea while teething. Of course every baby's development and personality are different. Please feel free to share your baby's own experienced.

Wow, I think this is my second blog award :-) Thank you Lea of My Life and People for this beautiful blogger award. I feel beautiful indeed !

* Thank & link to the person that gave you the award.
* Pass this award onto 10 bloggers you’ve recently discovered and think are fantastic.

Hmm 7 things about myself? I could not even think of one...but think...think..think.
1. I love watching CSI and NCIS
2. I love Ice Cream, only Rocky Road and nothing else
3. Love to read books ( pocket books, memoir, true stories, mills & boons, kahit ano!)
4. Sooo love black forest cake !
5. Love yoga (but had stop since the baby, but needs to get back in shape soon)
6. Love to eat out (pero minsan nagtitipid)

There you go, you were able to know seven things about me! Now, it is your turn to reveal yourself. If you feel beautiful ( in and out mommy), please feel free to grab this award. This is for you ! :-)
Your trade show booth on the other hand has to stand out among the rest to attract more people. You need to have banner stands; these are very useful advertising tools that can be set up anywhere. There are retractable versions, L shaped styles and indoor / outdoor models.
To put a little design on our booth, we tried using some pipe and drape as dividers. Many other organizations use them as privacy walls and crowd control. Table skirts will make your booth more formal. These table skirts could be attach around the perimeter of a table using special clips or just Velcro. They can be printed on to add a logo if needed and come in a variety of colors.
With all the materials and proper planning, your trade show or exhibit will definitely become a success!
I hope this virus will leave the house soon, before Gabz could catch it :-(

Mesothelioma could be treated by surgery, radiation and chemotherapy. Studies proved that 74.6% success rate in extending a patient's life through chemotherapy. Many people have died because of this rare and dangerous disease. Studies and research is still being done for the early detection of Mesothelioma to a person.
On the other hand, many books and research have been published about Mesothelioma, asbestos exposure and the likes. Paul Kraus wrote a book on how he survived Mesothelioma. Check out the book and see what he has to say. You can also read some testimonials from other Mesothelioma patients about this book. You can get a copy of the book for FREE
I am sure this book has tons of useful information, since it was written by someone who experienced and survived Mesothelioma. I think it is worth checking out!

Andi is five months old today. So far here are her milestones:
1. She has three teeth in front (lower portion)
2. She rolled in any direction (sometimes she was rolling all over the living room)
3. She started eating solid (home prepared). Today she had squash and banana.
4. She is very emotional too (she cried when your voice goes up as if you are mad, pretend that you are mad, and she will cry!)
5. She keeps pushing her bootie up (as if she wants to crawl?)
6. She loves playing tea party with big sister ! She usually sits on her swing while big sis sits in front of her with a mini table with tea sets on it !
7. She loves watching TV !!!
Sometimes I felt overwhelmed on how fast she grows up...I was discussing with hubby last night that we need to start putting safety measures around the house. Yesterday, while doing household chores, I put Andi down in the carpet with big blanket spread all over. After a few minutes I tried to check on her and she was just playing. But every time I checked on her, she moved from one place to another. After a while I saw her in front of our fireplace ! Half of her body was on the stone slab and half is in the carpet. I was so scared that she might had bumped her head or something...maybe not because she did not cried at all. But then it hits me, what if next time it will? I asked hubby to better go to Home Depot and find something to cover the edge of the stone slab...
While that is still under planning...I make sure that I watched her most of the time while playing on the floor.

Valentines Day, the moment their Dad woke up everybody gave their Valentines Card. This is the first valentine that I was not able to cook breakfast in bed for my hubby. I woke up late!!!
Dad cooked breakfast for the three girls in his life. After that we went to mass and have lunch at a fine dining restaurant. That is Dads another treat for her girls.
On our way home, since everybody ate too much and the weather is quite nice, we decided to take a walk at the park beside the lake. A whole day of bonding time ! Our valentines day was as simple as that and yet it means a lot to us. Spending time with my family!
I hope everyone had a great valentines day!

I was reading through a magazine this morning and according to one expert these are the must have toys in every kids toybox.
1. Books - I definitely agree on this one.
2. Touch toys - not so much for Andi because she is on a stage where she put everything on her mouth.
3. Visual toys - mobile, activity mats, plastic mirror or something that has lots of bright colors.
My Andi love this toy that makes bright lights, sounds and spins!
4. Hearing and listening toys -
5. Imitation toys
What do you think mom?

Wow it's Friday again! Mommy Moments theme is Language of Love, in time for Valentines Day this Sunday.
Yesterday, we were doing a Valentines card for Daddy. Gabz simply said, "Mommy, I want to write I love you Daddy on the card". And here it is.
The Bee card is from Gabz and the other one is from Andi. These cards are for their Daddy.
Since Andi does not know how to handle a pen yet, I draw her hand instead inside the card. hehehehe and mommy wrote for her.
Their Daddy always look forward for something during Valentines Day. The last Valentines card given by Gabz is still hanging in his office wall.

Hope everyone will have a great Valentines Day! Spread the love :-)

The above video is a teaser for a 2010 Audi super bowl commercial featuring the green police. The Green Police busting out another policeman using a plastic or styrofoam cup. I watched the whole commercial and I would say that It is very good in the sense that it conveys a very positive message to the people on how to be green. At the same time it shows off the Audi A3 TDI.
I appluad Audi for this commercial because they show to the people how much they care about our environment.

Andi is now four months old and her pedia told me that I could start introducing solid to her. She is eyeing everything I put in my mouth ! She even wakes up when it is meal time. Sometimes she grabs my plate when I ate while holding her. What do you do when your baby do that? Do you just give in and feed her or you still wait until she reaches the exact age?
A lot of moms told me to wait until six months because it has it's benefits. They said that your child has decreased risk for allergies and diabetes later in life if you start solids at this age.
Maybe I should wait then. :-)
The throat sighs!
Here are the benefits of playing the piano to children.
1. Enhance motor skills.
2. Develop hand - eye coordination
3. Increase self esteem
4. Improved memorization and concentration
5. Children become well rounded individual
These are the only few benefits and I am sure there are a lot more that could be develop when your child learn how to play the piano.
My husband who is a music lover wanted to enroll our daughter in a piano lesson. He has been telling me that ever since he noticed our daughter's inclination in music. He wanted to learn how to play the piano himself but he thinks he is too old for that. That is why he badly wanted Gabz to enroll in piano. I was telling him that it will be good for Gabz, but I think it is quite early for her. She is just four years old, maybe two to three years from now?
A lot of companies and individual offers piano lessons. You could even have piano lessons online! I was trying to surf the Internet for piano lessons and I was surprised that you can even study online by watching a video? Wow that is really amazing! When I was a kid, the only thing I know is that a piano teacher is the only one who can teach you how to play the piano. Technology indeed brought us to the next level.
When the time comes that Gabz wants to play the piano, I wanted her to learn her piano lessons from a piano teacher.

Watching TV has been one of our favorite past time. If you have high definition TV, you wanted all the sports channel, HBO, Starz, etc. to make your TV experience more enjoyable. High definition channels is what matters today. Getting the best programming package you can find from your cable subscription is important. But getting the best programming means paying a lot of money. But not anymore ! As I was sorting out our mail today, I found this DIRECT TV flier. Take a look at their packages, they got the best deal for your money. You can save more than $300 a year! No other cable company offered this kind of package.
But I think you need to hurry because this may end soon. You can also go to mytvoptions.com to find out more about DIRECTTV packages. DIRECT TV is one of the largest Satellite service provider here in the US. We have used their service before and I would say, that they are good. Why don't you check them out and find out for yourself?
