Look at my.... desktop!

I think I've already been tagged by 2 or 3 of my favorite blog friends about this.

web stats
Look at my... Desktop Instructions:

A. Upon receiving this tag, immediately perform a screen capture of your desktop. It is best that no icons be deleted before the screen capture so as to add to the element of fun.

You can do a screen capture by: (1) Going to your desktop and pressing the Print Screen key (located on the right side of the F12 key). (2) Open a graphics program (like Picture Manager, Paint, or Photoshop) and do a Paste (CTRL + V). (3) If you wish, you can “edit” the image, before saving it.

B. Post the picture in your blog. You can also give a short explanation on the look of your desktop just below it if you want. You can explain why you preferred such look or why is it full of icons. Things like that.

C. Tag five of your friends... but in this case they already tagged me!

D. Add your name to this list of Free Viewers with a link pointing directly to your Desktop Free View post to promote it to succeeding participants.

Yes everybody--I put everything on the desktop! Everything I use and on draft is there. But I always sort them onto their folders where they belong. It's just not the right time for now... tamad? Maybe hehe. And also... what you see on the desktop is what you will see on the cellphone.

*Lj* update

I haven't got any updates on *Lj* for quite some time now. I was too busy being lazy and now I need to keep up!

I got this chart from Babycenter.com to check *Lj*'s milestone. I mean, if she's doing any good with her age and to my surprise she even progressed to Advance skills.

~ Babycenter.com ~

*Lj* is 1 year, 8 months and 9 days old now to be exact. She still can't speak a whole sentence but she can say words and understands you.

Some of the advanced skills are already listed in her mastered skills. So here's what I've come up with:
~ Uses spoon and fork (especially when playing...)
~ Runs! (she definitely can run fast!)
~ Throws a ball. (she loves to do this...)
~ Feeds the doll (she feeds her Snow White doll using her milk bottle and using the spoon).
~ Dumps an object in imitation. (like throwing her toys in the basket).
~ Can walk upstairs and downstairs. (you cannot make her stop doing this...)
~ Kicks a ball. (she likes to play with her ball...)
~ Names simple pictures in her book (cat, dog, elephant, fish, bear, apple, orange, grapes, ball, balloon, pizza, spaghetti, ice cream, dress, shoes, bag, girl, boy, umbrella, lollipop, and many many more.)
~ Follows two-step requests (get the doll and bring it here).
~ Uses 50-70 words. (lie down, mamam for milk, Nu white for Snow white, Ball, Pitcha for Pizza, Getti for spaghetti, No, stop, mommy, daddy, tita, lolo, lola, Hi, hello, bye, brumbrum for her car/bike and many many more...)
~ Names at least six body parts. (She can name and points them too... eyes, nose, ears, lips, teeth, chinchin, head, hair, shoulder, hands, feet, tyan-tyan for stomach and bumbum).
~ Recognizing when something is wrong. (One time, she came to me shouting and pointing her bumbum.. and then she said "OUCH!")
~ Learns words at a rate of ten or more a day. (We use her books, Barney cards with pictures to do this...)
~ Stacks six blocks (Likes to stack them and enjoys to kick it so that it will fall, then she'll do it again...)
~ Opens the door. (She can open and close the door).
~ Sings simple tones. (like twinkle twinkle little star with Chinese lyrics hehehe!).
~ Take more of an interest in playing with other kids. (She like to play with her cousin, Amandine and she always say "hi" to other kids when she sees one).
~ Washes and dries own hands with help. (After eating, she'll say, "Brush! Wash!", pointing her teeth and showing her hands).
~ Understands opposite (close and open, big and small, On and Off, hot and cold).
~ Learns to jump. (She can jump, big time!)
~ Does simple puzzle. (She like doing her ABC and Shapes puzzle).
~ And the list goes on... because everyday is a learning experience for her.

Good thing we caught her on video doing her puzzle game...


~ Doing the puzzle shapes... ~

*Lj* really really likes it when Amandine comes over for a visit. They like to play together and jump together.... My mom was able to capture it from her mobile phone. And please excuse my mom... she's not into high tech gadgets hehe! And you will see here that *Lj* is very much trained to pose in front of the camera... c/o of other sister Gelai hehe!

Pictures of the Week

One fine Saturday morning... me and my sisters did not bother to talk for a few hours because of our new wifi network. My mom even took these pictures without us knowing it. We just left the 2 kids play around the bed and all. Oh come on now... I was busy uploading some pictures!

~ Mind your own business! LOL! ~

Birthday hubby

We had a wonderful time yesterday! Hubby took the day off from work to spend some quality time with us. At 10:30am we went to hubby's dad in the office. We went to KFC and ate lunch. Everybody there seems to like *Lj*. Then after that, we bought pancit and brought it to hubby's work place. Again, his office mates were amazed by *Lj*'s tricks hehe! Then we arrived in SM north @ 3pm. Around late afternoon we had a snack @ Auntie Anne's. Hubby and I both smiled when we saw it. We used to eat there together some years ago and now we have *Lj*.

Our little angel was all over the place but she definitely loved the almond pretzel with choco dippings. I didn't brought my camera so all I got are a few snap shots from my mobile phone.

We changed her diaper and clothes right then and there after the quick snack. Hubby and I broke into laugh because our hands are full already doing this and that. Hubby confessed that he enjoyed being with *Lj* especially during trips to the mall.

I realized that I need to buy stockings for *Lj* when I saw her dress. So we went back to the kiddie store again and bought 3 pairs--white, pink and black. I was thinking that *Lj* won't like it but I was wrong.. so wrong. She liked it very much! We went to 'The Block' to sit and rest our feet, and *Lj* had a bottle of milk too.

~ Rest those little feet... ~

She quickly sat up when she saw a baby. She didn't even finished her bottle of milk. But I had a chance to take this shot. She really looks a lady here... and I'm not getting younger! tsk tsk tsk.

~ My little lady... ~

Digitalframez

Everybody loves to take pictures nowadays. In our family we always make sure to have the digicam with us whenever we go. We definitely cannot let the precious moments pass us by. That's why choosing a digital photo frame is a must and for that I discovered Digitalframez. This unique idea specializes digital frames and digital picture frames... now how cool it that huh? I remembered my mom used to buy expensive picture frames and she would post them in every single corner of the house, but that’s the old fashion way. But for me, I keep them piled up in a photo album which is now collecting dust somewhere around the house.

With the high technology these days, I can sit back, relax and need no worries because I know my pictures are in good hands. That's very convenient for me, as a working mom who works on shifting schedule
. Now with cool digital frames from Digitalframez, I can proudly show my relatives and friends the precious pictures I have that will last a lifetime.

The face and The video...

I was browsing my mom's cellphone looking for the video I wanted to copy. As I browsed all the photos in the gallery area, I was surprised to see *Lj*'s picture with "the expression" she had on her face. I still can't figure out what she's thinking when they took this shot...

~ The face... ~

And finally I was able to copy the video taken from my papa's birthday @ Redbox in TriNoMa. We requested my mom to sing the song from Stevie Wonder for Papa. We laughed when we saw *Lj* took the other microphone and had a duet with my mom. It was quite a show...


~ I just called to say... I love you... ~

Nag moments ako...

My mind was interrupted by some not-so-unfortunate-family-issues-again. I'm definitely NOT talking about the *zitros*. You know, it very very very rare for us to have family issues. I think we never had one at all. But I'm talking about *toot*'s family. I will not further discuss everything here bcoz this is a very confidential matter. Let's say, it's too private.. you know. Anyway, I had my mind focused on it for 3 days straight. I hardly slept at all. On the 3rd day, I thought, I cannot argue anymore. I'm not the type of person whose enjoying every minute of shameful conversations that will lead to future scars on the relationship. In other words... mabait ako hehe.

I have so so many plans but I can't take actions bcoz of this. I've decided to just to go on with the flow for now. I'll approve... for now. I'll obey... for now. I'll be patient... for now. I'll be silent... for now. But when the time comes... I'll prove to you what I am capable of and make you realize that you don't have everything.

With GOD as my strength and inspiration to be strong... I can do this. You'll see...

Monday blues...

I'm getting those sad moments again. Woke early 6:30 this morning from the rest-less weekend, feeling that I need to get out of bed. We had breakfast but after everybody left for work, I started feeling bored. I watched High School Musical on dvd hehe Coz I found a dvd lying around. But after that, here I am with nothing to do. I'm starting to feel bored with my life. I want to sleep but I can't sleep. Or maybe I don't want to... I wanna watch TV but there's nothing to watch. I wanna jump but I'm too lazy... but why in the world I want to do that? Sigh.

Maybe this is another feeling of Monday blues. A feeling of denial that it's monday again, and I need to go to work again later. hehehe... whatever.

TGIF yesterday...

Thank God It's Friday... yesterday.

Just got out from work this morning. It was raining. Good thing my mom and dad fetched me from work. We chatted inside the car and had breakfast at Tropical Hut. I had 2-pc pancakes with ham on the side. Yum. We got home and as I entered the door, *Lj* approached me and shouted "Surprise!" with her 2 arms waving at me. How cute. Yes, she can say a word or two that you can understand but not a whole sentence. She still talks chinese though. Anyway, more on *Lj*'s updates soon. I changed my clothes and went to the dentist. The traffic was horrible. Anyway, don't want to talk about. I'm having progress with my dentist visits now. Hopefully, I'd finish this by December. Doc Emma did a major adjustment on the teeth today. Talked about pain, but it was tolerable. I got home at exactly 12noon. Imagine the heat... it was extremely hot.

We'll go to Bulacan later @ 3pm to visit hubby's dad there. And tomorrow, we'll go to Las Pinas to visit *Lj*'s cousin, Amandine. I think the kids are gonna have a dip in the pool.

That's my usual weekend. Pretty tied-up huh?

Mamang

What children need most are the essentials that
grandparents provide in abundance.
They give unconditional love, kindness,
patience, humor, comfort, lessons in life.
And, most importantly, cookies.

Felicidades Mamang!!!

We miss you...

Wishing well

I finally updated the links on the side bar. New photos displayed, c/o my new Flickr account and my own compilation of celebrity blogs. I really *really* want a 3-column template but I'm too lazy to do it. Grrr! Since I have so many things on the side bar, I need to scroll all the way down to see everything... sucks huh?

Sana magkaron ng magic at maging 3-column tempate bigla... *Wishing well!!!*

Best nights

This tag from kRisTiNe was long over due. Five best nights of my life... hhmmm but I have six hehehe. Anyway, it's not easy to pick a day since I enjoyed everything that happened to me these past few years. But its worth the try... Here goes:

Third Year high School - First time I played music in front of the crowd... and rest was history.

Year 2005 - Stayed awake all night with my bf (now hubby) watching dvd movies.

Year 2005 - Gimicks! Gimicks! with my bf (now hubby).

April 2005 - The night I confessed to hubby that I'm pregnant. I remembered it was in the car and we were on our way home. He was so happy and excited. At home, we held each other and prayed... thanking HIM for giving us this blessing.

January 1, 2006 - The night before my wedding day. I stayed up late, stared at my wedding gown and wrote my thoughts in my journal. It was an emotional thing for me since it was a big turning point of my life. And all our hard work came to an end that day... preparations, time pressure and all. All I did that night was talked to myself and prayed. But it all went great the next day!

January 18, 2006 - We spend the night in the hospital. Aside from the pains of after birth and exhaustion, I manage to stay up late and stared at my daughter and hubby while they were sleeping. That's when I felt that I have a family of my own.

It's your turn now! yes YOU! Go!

Papsie

A Father means so many things...
A understanding heart,
A source of strength and of support
Right from the very start.
A constant readiness to help
In a kind and thoughtful way.
With encouragement and forgiveness
No matter what comes your way.
A special generosity and always affection, too
A Father means so many things
When he's a man like you...
~ Author Unknown ~



HAPPY BIRTHDAY PAPA!!!
