Brag Bangles

It was last year when Masheng and I had our very first brag bangles. Since then, hindi na ako nagpapalit ng bangle tuwing umaalis kami. I got the gold edition brangle. It always catches people's attention since it's really unique and trendy. Everytime may nakakakita, they would ask where I bought it. I would just say, I bought it from a dear friend.

It took some time before Masheng got used to wearing hers (white naman ang sa kanya). She didn't like it at first, I think it was a bit uncomfy and heavy for her thin arms. But as time goes by, nasanay din. Sya pa mismo ang nagpapasuot nito tuwing aalis kami (together with a watch, ginagamit ko kasing pang harang yung relo para 'di mahulog 'yung bangle). But unfortunately, kung kailan naman ok na sa kanya, eh saka naman nya naiwala.

So I asked our mommy friend Tine kung gumagawa pa sya ng bangles. I wanted another one for Masheng and for me na rin. She told me that she doesn't make them anymore, but she said that she'll make one for Masheng ulit. Buti na lang at naisipan kong magpagawa na. She's about to leave na kasi.

Sa sobrang tuwa ko, nagpagawa ako ng 2 for my li'l girl. I requested for a toddler-sized one which is similar to what she used to have before and a much bigger one, para may gagamitin pa din sya when she gets older (Ifor me, these kinds of stuff are timeless). These are more special kasi this time, kasama na ang pictures ni Baby King.

Happy with her new bangles.

I also asked her to make 6 adult bangles. My sisters and my mom have been wanting it din kasi so I thought that it would be a very nice Christmas present for them.

I know my share of review about these adorable bangles is quite late already. I just want to express my appreciation and grattitude to it's maker, Mommy Tine. Thanks kasi pinagbigyan mo 'yung request ko kahit na super busy ka rin last month (since she's leaving na nga). Sobrang thank you for the time and effort. I was really touched when you told me that you were willing to make some again for Masheng (she stopped creating them na rin kasi). And thanks din syempre for giving me a discount. Promise, mas iingatan ko na sila this time (kasi 'pag nawala pa sila ulit, wala na kong kukulitin na gumawa ulit, hehehe).

Goodluck to you and your family.

My Prizes from Spot and Other Contests...

My Belle de Jour Planner and my Havies are finally on my hands!

My new planner is really nice... It's what I exactly need, it's a power planner indeed!

My new pair of flipflops is so cute din. Buti na lang, what they gave was exactly my size. Tamang tama, I'm running out of slippers na rin kasi...

Thank you so much Spot!

Singit ko na rin 'yung iba ko pa prizes from other promos and contests.

Here's what I got from Johnson's naman. I don't use lotions that much anymore but I'm still happy to have these little cutees.

Thank you din sa Momcenter for our prizes. I got gift certificates, two big bottles of Benneton perfumes and Cycle's products upon winning all their contest categories last year (I won't post the actual pics of my MC prizes anymore, nagamit na kasi... ubos na nga 'yung isang perfume). Here are our winning pics:

I've got my token from Moms and Kids na rin (a YJC gift certificate). I gave it to Joms. He's been wanting a relaxing massage kasi. He desserves it naman since he's been working so hard.

I also won Toblerone's Thank you contest. Here was our entry pic:

Thanks ulit sa lahat...

Masheng's Now Offically Potty Trained :)

Yehey, finally!

I'm so proud and happy! Marunong nang magsabi si Masheng kapag magwi-weewee sya at magpu-poop.

Actually, nauna nyang natutunan mag control ng pupu. Last month, she started learning to poop on our toilet bowl (she didn't get to use her potty trainer, deretso na agad sa big bowl). Then this week, she learns to control her weewee naman. Nagsasabi na sya on time at hindi na nya nababasa ang undies nya. There were times this week na inaabot pa din naman, but today out of 6 times na nag pee sya sa maghapon eh once lang sya sumablay (she didn't wear any nappy the whole day).

Nakatulong 'yung paulit ulit kong pag praise sa kanya whenever she does it right. Everytime kasi na nagagawa nya 'yun, sinasabi ko na good girl sya. So ayun, nawili sa mga praises kaya natuto. Then she would proudly say, "Nag weewee ako sa bowl / banyo!".

I also remind her from time to time na magsabi agad kapag nawi-weewee sya. Nakakatuwa nga, tuwing magsasabi sya, kusa at magmamadali na 'yang pupunta sa CR.

She has been showing signs of being potty trained since she turned 2. We started training her little by little then. Kaso lang, hindi kami naging ganun ka consistent. She plays with her weewee kasi so hindi pwedeng laging walang diaper sa umaga unless nababantayan talaga. Anyway, we were not in a hurry din naman since she's just 2 years old and we know that eventually eh matututo rin sya. So ayun nga, bigla na lang marunong na.

Eventually, she's gonna be totally out of her nappies na! Actually she's already ditching those. Ang saya di ba? Matipid na!

Way to go my baby love!

Marchelle's 13th Magazine Appearance

With Baby Mag again!

The picture was taken when she was 17 months old. Papunta kaming Subic that time. Eh makulit, gusto nya sa driver's seat kaya ayan, buti na lang at napicture-an ko...

Hanggang ngayon naman, malikot 'yan kapag nasa car. Gusto nya nasa harap lagi. Siguro maaga sya matututo mag drive, hehe...
