Little Andre with my MIL his great grandma. They came down last week so spend the weekend with us since we will be leaving for our vacation very soon. We won't be seeing them for quite some time. He will be turning a year old this coming August 13 if I am not mistaken. Andrew is such a sweet little boy and just play and smiles a lot. It amazes me that they just put him in the crib and he will sleep on his own. Kaitlyn never did that, my fault. He is already pulling himself up and standing on his own but is still hesitant on taking that first step. Kaitlyn was exactly 10 months old when she took her first step and by 10 1/2 she was already walking and wobbling along. Kids do develop at their own pace and when they are ready they will do for it. He loves the pool though but that day was just to breezy for him. All the same we want to thank Andrew's family for coming down to spend the weekend with us.

Check out my baby girl!! She is only 2 1/2 years old, well almost 3 but look what she can do. She has been jumping in the pool like that since last year at 20 months old. I just put her in the life vest and that was it, no more holding her in the pool. It also helps that she has an older sister, she copies everything that her manang does. Lately, she has been trying to dive under the pool like her sister. She very much wants to touch the bottom of the pool but with the vest on she can't do that. Still, she loves to put her head in and look under water. I don't know how she does it but she never complains about getting water up her nose when she jumps in the pool. If she keeps this up by the time she is 5 she will probably be swimming on her own.

Guess who just turned 1 year old last Jun 6, 2010? Our dog Sunny, a Labrador Retriever. We got him from my BIL Angelo when he was just a tiny puppy. And now he is so big but very gentle. I am not usually a dog lover but Sunny just barked his way into my heart with his gentleness and his goofiness. He is more like Kaitlyn's dog than aything, they play all day and he takes all the abuse from her. Sunny is a very protective dog, he will immediately come between Kaitlyn and us if he thinks that she is in danger. He is still a puppy and he has a playful side of jumping on the kids when he gets so riled up. With him being a big dog the kids get hurt but not that bad, they just get knocked down by him or get a few scratches from his nails.

Just look at my babies with their protector Sunny. I just had to go out last Sunday to get him a cake. After all he is a part of the family and he deserves it! Happy Happy Birthday baby boy!

Have you noticed that with the changing of the season you change as well? There was one Summer where I was a lot younger, I had a terrible case of acne breakout. At first I really didn't pay attention to it nor took care of my face. It did got worse, now every time I look in the mirror and see the scars left from acne breakouts I have regrets. I should have taken medication or looked for natural acne treatment that could have helped control it. My mom was not happy to find out that I did not treat it right away. From that time on, I try to put medication to control my breakouts before they get any worse. Thankfully I only have a couple of scars left from that experience. My problem now is about uneven skin tone and find something that can help me in that area.

What a hot week its gonna be.It's really time to break out the summer outfits and bathing suit. Wearing swimsuit can be nerve wracking specially if you have a lot of belly fat in excess. Most of my swimsuit are two piece, tankini and 2 monokini. The two piece makes me so self conscious with my belly flab hanging out. I only have a month to try and trim my tummy and loose a little bit of excess fat. One quick option would be to get my hands on a weight loss pill or fat burner. I should try to adipex and see if I can loose some weight with it. But before taking it I will have to read the adipex side effects to see if its going to interfere with my daily routine. Why can't we all just be happy with what we have? I just want a firmer tummy, I don't need abs, just a semi-flat belly. Is that to much to ask?


Look whose got a tan now! That was actually taken last week when it was scorching hot. It was just a few hours under the sun, when I went in the bathroom I could tell I had a tan. I didn't get burned though, it helped that I put sunblock. My hubby likes it when I get darker , he said it make me look sexier. My grandmother would probably get so upset why I want to get so dark and stay under the sun. To much sun exposure is bad on your skin that can cause skin cancer. I can't help but get dark and stay under the sun because I have kids and we have a swimming pool. Sitting under the umbrella on the pool deck is where I am usually at but it can only do so much. You should see my youngest, she is so tanned now. I lather my kids with sunblock when they are out playing and specially when they are swimming. Husband thinks I still need to toast a little bit more, lol.
