My Pure Definition Of "Life Is Good"

Just by looking at these pictures, needless to say anything. For me, this is a pure definition of life is good!

...Baby Megan relaxing... watching t.v at the same time sucking her milk... life oh so freaking good!

Baby Blanket Is Baby Megan's Comfort

I just thought of my baby playing with a baby blanket whenever she is awake is such a joy to watch. Her cute little fingers stroking, playing and feeling the softness of her blanket. This specific blanket used to be her big sister's blanket. Amazing how she finds comfort with this blanket, she would feel comfortable sleeping with it wrap around her body even if it is mid summer. I wonder how is she going to behave when we go to travel this weekend and not bringing her precious and sacred blanket?

I must have chosen the right kind of blanket for my girls because they both like it. Although there are several kinds of blankets we can buy out there, it is important too to read tips when choosing appropriate for our kids' ages. I am thankful for the internet because I can pretty much search helpful information and tips that I can read and eventually share with my readers.

My Girls Wore The Same Princess Dress On Their 1st Birthday

I am really glad that God gave me two Princesses instead of one boy and one girl or the second girl could have not used my first born's outgrown clothes. It truly saves us quite a bit of money for keeping the same old baby stuff until baby Megan came.

One of the many things I didn't buy is this pink Disney Princess dress that I bought four years ago for Jadyn's first birthday. I actually left it in the Philippines in 2009 but then brought it back here in the U.S the following year we were able to visit my homeland. Photos below are snaps of the two Princess on their first birthday wearing the same pink dress. Cool, isn't it? Too bad though I didn't capture Jadyn's full body just like I did of Megan.
..... sorry for the silly face of mommy, as you can see the photo above, baby Jadyn was in pink too...

I Now Own An HTC 4G By Boost Mobile

This post brought to you by Boost Mobile. All opinions are 100% mine.

How happy I am to have received this HTC  Evo Design 4G Boost Mobile in the mail today! God knew how much I wanted a new phone. Not just a new phone but I want something that doesn't tie me with contracts and provides me with faster data speeds and has the ability to do different things at once without having to sacrifice network, speed and quality since I love to do multitasking a lot. Wow! I am just so excited to start using my new mobile phone.

I am so ready to get rid of my 2 year-old phone and stop AT&T's service since I found that darling phone and subscription that is promising. We are in tight financial situation right now so I believe that cutting my cellphone from them could save us a bit of money. With Boost Mobile, I will be able to reduce my payments for as low as $40 a month. 

There are so many advantages or benefits why I should use Boost Mobile. They do offer to their customers what they call "Shrinking Payments". What is Shrinking Payments by the way? It is actually a loyalty offered by Boost in the pre-paid wireless category. Another benefit you can get from loyalty program is that they appreciate and give you rewards by being loyal to them by reducing your payments by $5 increments each month after six months on-time payments for a max of $15 off your monthly recurring charge. 

Now, the question is how are going to take advantage of this great program? Simply make six on-time payments and they will reduce your payments. They also have options on other plans such as:

talk and text only

talk, text and web

Blackberry plans

Monthly Unlimited 

Monthly Unlimited with shrinkage

Android monthly unlimited

Customers have several options depending on their cellphone usage. As for me, I will go to talk, text and web for sure. I am just so happy and excited right now because of this phone. I never really thought that I could own one like this. Thank You, Lord!

Mommy And Girls' Day Out

I took my girls to the mall today so they can play at the mall's play area. I did it because I also got some coupons to use before they expire specifically the free Victoria's Secret panties and a $10 off a bra. Not only that, I also got really really bored these past few days and needed to get out of the house, see some people and to relieve the stress. 

We only stayed at the mall for 4 hours though. We left early at 10:30 in the morning and went home at 2 PM. Geeezzz man it was so hot that all three of us were sweating when we got home. Even my 4 year-old girl complained about her being so hot and sweaty. Imagine to be out there at 104 degrees?

"The Best Birthday Ever!" She Said

I was tickled to my veins when I heard my first born saying, "this is the best birthday party I ever had". She said that while she was alone sitting in the kitchen facing the cake and all the stuff. She said it with emotion! I then told her, no that is not true! Don't you remember those 4 great birthdays you had with lots of visitors, barbie dolls and food? She then replied, "oh yeah!". 

Silly girl. She is already experiencing forgetfulness at age 4, haha. I tried reminding her of the past birthday celebrations she had so she wouldn't think that it's only her baby sister getting the best birthday ever! Huh, in a kid's eyes our celebration today was the best but for me it was just so simple and exclusive for my family,   well except for their next door playmate who came to sing the song with us.

I only cooked my baby spaghetti for long life and that's it. A cake, a box of mini magnum ice cream, one Barbie doll as my present to her and a monkey stuff toy from Isabella and that is it. Nothing fancy, really.

Big Sister Shared Her Chicken

We don't normally see these scenes in this house of my big Princess sharing her food to baby sister it's because she thinks baby sister's saliva is dirty. She doesn't know baby's saliva is cleaner than hers. Anything that touches the baby's hands or mouth will be wiped or refused by the big sister because of saliva in it.

 ne late afternoon last weekend we grilled some meats including chicken drumsticks. As soon as the chickens were done, the big Princess asked for a leg. Since this doesn't normally happen, I made sure I captured it with my camera for keeps. I hope in the future Jadyn will change and sharing her stuff and food with her sister is more fun than keeping them all to herself.

Kids Clothing Are So Cute

It happened to me several times when I go out for shopping for myself I end up buying clothes for my two girls. Same thing if I do it online. At first I would browse for dresses or handbags but then for some reason I couldn't check out with adult stuff instead beautiful and cute outfits for my two girls, why is that? I think it is not just me that is so enticed shopping for designer kids clothing in stores or online but most moms too. I have talked to several friends I know who are also moms, they said the same thing.

Children's clothing are just so cute that they are hard to resist. Whenever I see one online especially if it is on sale, I am tempted to buy it to make my girls look pretty in their outfit and also for them to have many dresses as they can for I never have it when I was growing up.

Air Purifying House Plants

I saw this on Facebook being shared by a lot of people for information. I thought of sharing it here too so you all will know. I am lucky for I have one of those air purifying house plants shown in the picture below. I got the number two plant called Snake Plant not just one pot but four of them. I am just happy I don't have to be looking around for it for it already is in our home.

1. Bamboo Palm: According to NASA, it removes formaldahyde and is also said to act as a natural humidifier. 

2. Snake Plant: Found by NASA to absorb nitrogen oxides and formaldahyde.

3. Areca Palm: One of the best air purifying plants for general air cleanliness.

4. Spider Plant: Great indoor plant for removing carbon monoxide and other toxins or impurities. Spider plants are one of three plants NASA deems best at removing formaldahyde from the air. 

5. Peace Lily: Peace lilies could be called the “clean-all.” They’re often placed in bathrooms or laundry rooms because they’re known for removing mold spores. Also know to remove formaldahyde and trichloroethylene. 

6. Gerbera Daisy: Not only do these gorgeous flowers remove benzene from the air, they’re known to improve sleep by absorbing carbon dioxide and giving off more oxygen over night. If you can't even put a plant in your living room because you say it is too much trouble, then you need to die and wait for the other life to bring sense in your spirits!!!

Silver Teeth Of A Four-Year Old

My recent photo post on Facebook of my four-year old daughter drives a lot of attention especially to mommies. A few could relate to the dental works that my daughter had gone through recently. She now has four silver teeth in the upper jaw and there will be more coming in her next appointment come Friday. 

One of my friends who asked me questions about how my Jadyn's dental job was done because she too has a son that will need some fixing if not now, will be later. Anyhow, she is in Australia so I recommended that she would search a dentist close where she lives. Since she in Melbourne, it would be nice for her to go to a dentist Melbourne specialist.

I don't know how much is the cost for a cap and crown of a child there in Australia because I am here in the US, all I could tell her how my daughter accepted that she needed to have her teeth fixed, how she behaved well during the process and how the dental office treated my child so that they will be able to do their work without scaring my child. I love the new pediatric dentist we found for he truly is amazing with kids. Back to a friend in Melbourne, I did tell her to look for a dentist that will treat his son not just a patient but also a friend. That way it gives the boy the feeling that he can trust the person working in his mouth. I think for me that is very important.
