Happy 22-Month Chloe!

At this point of her development, she can now understand many more words than she can actually say. So I'm trying to focus on her listening skills than stressing myself out on her speaking progress. I borrowed some practical tip from Mark and Grace Driscoll, to place a hand on the head of your children every day and pray over them. So every day I pray to God that she be healthy, smart, cheerful and carefree and God-fearing; that she will advance her language progress to a good degree.

But while keeping my faith on it, I might as well enjoy simple but happy memories of times together. What I love most is when I sing nursery rhymes with her and naturally sing along with me even if she can't say all the words. Her attempt at carrying the tune is just perfect to my ears. Like for example when I sing "head, shoulders, knees and toes" she is able to point out her body parts at the right places. And all the ad-lib the nursery teacher is saying in her favorite "Chu Chu TV" channel?  She can perfectly mimic the tone of speech and repeat them with similar infliction.

And the funny part of this stage is, which is my favorite, I saw her holding my favorite book and pretended to read it herself in such a way that she will sit in a corner, the book covering her face but her eyes if not, her head were moving left to right and scanning it like the fastest reader ever recorded. I know she's only pretending, but I couldn't be prouder. 

On the other news, her attention span is becoming relatively shorter than before. She often gets upset when things are not coming her way. And the worst thing is, she will throw away everything she's holding at that specific moment. And for the record, she broke two phones down. I'm trying not to make a big deal out of it, but sometimes I can't resist the urge to hit her. And my neighbors can surely remember (by heart) all the phrases I used to calm down a crying baby.

Way to go, Chloe J

Irresistible Me Diamond Flat Iron Review: Is it worth it?

I started using flat irons since I was 18 years old (well, that was 12 years ago?) and I’m amazed at how the industry of hair straighteners had come. Man, I think we're missing out on some great deal. Flat iron over the years, We all know the humble beginnings of hair comb or some may call them hair thongs which are made of two rods heated to straighten the hair. I never get to use this one as I was introduced to the second generation of hair straighteners and that was using a standard home clothes iron. Nah, I mean the basic flat irons made with metal plates and few heat settings. Not until the early 2000s when I saw this model with ceramic plates that most people use today. Ceramic is by far the most popular material for this product as it is both inexpensive and actually safer compared to the clothing iron or heating rods back in days. Depending on your hair type, ceramic plates are believed to lock in moisture and protect hair color. But with a lot of this model

Weekend Well Spent

Last week was kind of breezy to the point where I thought it was already Friday when I’m only in the middle of my week, which is odd because when I’m excited for something and I’m looking forward to it every single day, it makes my whole month moved into a slow motion and I’m like bored to death. Gladly, my weekend didn’t pass by so sudden that I got to enjoy it with people dearest to my heart to the fullest. I love weekends so much that I decided not to care about laundry or cleaning the house (sort of) but just spend the whole two days enjoying the cold weather which means more sleeps and longer walks to the mall. Last weekend, we ate breakfast in our PJ’s, had brunch in the street food shops, enjoyed salmon and some surprisingly affordable tasty Japanese cuisine, scored some discounts on baby clothes and winter shirts, did some window shopping, had a half dozen Krispy Kreme glazed donuts for dessert and just cuddled and sang nursery rhymes at the top of our lungs.
