Just testing to see if I can publish through my mobile to avoid buying a diary app.
The last few days, she’s been pretty fussy. We’re thinking it’s due to the 6th week growth spurt (or we’re just trying to blame it on something). It’s harder to get her to sleep, and her longest rest is usually in the mornings. I’m trying to force her to sleep more at night and play in the morning, but I think she’s still too young to comprehend the schedule. Luckily, we have the papasan to lull her to sleep. Sometimes it has more patience to rock her to sleep while giving us the chance to rest as well. We had our first restaurant outing since she’s been born. Coincidentally, we ate at Red Lobster, the same restaurant where Emma first visited. (See side photo) Zi slept for an eighth of the dinner, then Perze and I were forced to take turns carrying her and eating our dinner. I never ate a lobster pizza so fast. And while my appetite stayed in, I unwillingly had my portion to go. As usual, like most newborns, Zi was cooed over by passing strangers, and Em had to answer all the big sister questions, while I stuffed myself with cheddar bay biscuits. Classy, right?
Slowly Em is learning how to read. She knows a lot of her phonetic sounds and can sometimes put the sounds to form the words. Hopefully when Zi is a couple months, I can concentrate on Em’s reading. Today we read a book about Barney. She chose it so I couldn’t say no 🙂 .
Tonight, I was putting Zi back to sleep, being pretty much tired from the weekend’s busyness. Instead of sleeping myself, I went online, and checked email, procrastinating sleep by the curiosity of our weekly financial summary statement by Mint. As I saw expected figures, I see something oddly unfamiliar, but something that made me ambivalently happy and sad. Encasing both emotions was the affirming realization of my husband’s love for me, and not just for our children since after Em’s and Zi’s birth, we’ve somewhat revolved our care for their upbringing, but Perze’s continued love for me from the beginning when it was just us. There was a separate category for savings, and despite its yet humble figure, it meant a lot for Perze to think of me and start building it. Completely unaware, yet drowsily humbled and appreciative, I read: Paradise Falls Fund. Obviously, one can infer why the thoughtful gesture would make me happy, but the thought of it also makes me a bit melancholic because I don’t really need to see Paradise Falls in my lifetime. I’m honestly and wonderfully happy and more than just content; I’m actually overwhelmingly thankful every day that I am where I […]
Carrillo Shift ”Textured aqua cotton, dotted with brass globes and trimmed with scalloped picot.” Side zip, Front pockets, Cotton I had a crush on first sight on this Maeve shift dress. By the way, I’m very keen on mod fashion, and this made me want to volumize my hair and buy t-strap round pumps. The dress fabric is textured, almost waffle-ly, and has an almost military slash nautical whim to it with the brass “buttons”. I waited for it to go on sale, and on sale it went, but I decided to buy it for my mom since I know the type of clothes she likes. We share a love for shift mod dresses. So if you see a cute 50ish year old Filipina woman dolled up in an aquamarine dress, that’s my mom. Source: – Original Price: $138 Bought: ‘on sale’ (can’t say, she’ll know the price) Status: Gift
perze’s facebook profile :: marchesa’s facebook profile hahah…okok…it’s not really a family picture, but you don’t know how difficult it is to take a picture together…a decent picture together. It’s even harder to get all the cousins to get a still together. The focus just isn’t there simultaneously (no pun intended). ps. my dad, mom, and brother left for the Phils. tonight due to a death in my mom’s family. Please keep them in your prayers for travelling mercies.
Lela Rose: Brinley Ribbon Pump I loved this when I saw it online, so I though in store, it would lose its charm w/ the material…but luckily, I was definitely smitten when I slipped it on my feet. I felt very feminine wearing it, with it’s thin heel and Parisian, almost nautical, look. Love it. Love it. Definitely one of my picks this summer. Store’s Description: “This multi-media designer pump by Lela Rose has retro Parisian charm. It features a luxurious faille upper with grosgrain ribbon accents, a contrasting topline and a 3.5" stiletto heel with a stacked wood look for a natural touch. Padded insole for comfort. Fabric upper. Leather outsole with flocking.” ps. Don’t forget the matching clutch. By Lela rose. Source: – Damage: $38
