I learned a very simple yet important rule in web management today. To some it might just be a way to conserve the appearance to the page, make it look a little neat. In this world of SEO optimized web pages the basic currency is now your page views.
(written oct 26) zem’s taking her first nap of the day, so i get some blogging time to write about her. i love how affectionate and happy she is. she just LOVES to play, and more importantly, she loves to play with you. she’s all smiles and laughter when you give her your undivided attention. i love how she can understand so much of what you say, what you want her to do or learn. i never knew that babies within their first couple of years could attain such knowledge, but they really pick up language very quickly after their first year. she can respond to multiple commands, questions, requests. sometimes, we’ll be together playing and we’ll stop and she would just look at me for a very quick while, and smile…and it’s then when i really wonder what she’s thinking of me. she’s never afraid of how i look, even when i’m disheveled, or make contorted faces that would scare myself and insecurities. she just shows love and genuine gratefulness for my attention. sometimes, she’ll even hug me out of the blue and press her lips to kiss me…out of the blue, and it makes me wonder why she wanted […]
As I wrote on my previous blog about Paul & Joe, they eventually came to America…and of all places, to TARGET. Of course, I was stunned, and ecstatic, and they have really given good clothes to the masses. My favorite, of course, are their vintage pieces, like their wool items- the miniskirt and golden blazer. Look at the lining of that blazer…ballerinas. Then there are the bottoms, and like that owl icon, i had to play favorites with the skinny jeans that had the ever so popular owl stitching. I think what makes the owl so popular is its vintage feel, and her skinny owl jeans are described Vintage Wash. There are two owls in the back just making your bum wise. I tired on the skinny jeans, and wow, they fit snugly, and look fabulous. Then of course are the skirts, but my favorite is the mini owl denim. They just look right. I’m really in love with the owl denims. The first pair of jeans are my favorite. Can you believe that skirt went down to $6 on clearance?! And the owl jeans, i’ve been selling on ebay, which goes as high as $48 selling sometimes. The pictures […]
the rain was absolutely exciting to hear tonite patter on the window. emma looked out to see what was making all the noise. i told her it was jesus and he called it thunder. she fell asleep to it and the rain ceased when she finally calmed herself to her bed. we’re slowly introducing her to her own bed, which is adjacent to ours, for any need she may have requiring easy access to a warm mama or tatay. the nights go by so quickly these days…i feel i’m always doing something, finishing something, thinking about something, planning something. i’ve taken on a couple projects to occupy my time. it feels odd that i should have emma playing alone, exhaustively stretching to get my attention, but i’m wondering if it’s beneficial for her to learn how to occupy herself at some times, as not to always be overly clingy, as she sometimes can be. i’m so amazed by her, the individual, the wholeness and completeness of her, who she is. most people think babies are just babies, so innocent and naive…but when you have your own, you see things other people don’t see…who she is becoming. the plus and minuses […]
