Gabbie Writes: Tink and the Bug

On the first days of summer vacation, Gabbie played with some papers and stickers she got from birthday parties she had been. One afternoon, she handed me some post its bound in the side like a booklet. She said, "Mommy, let me tell you a story."

Tink and the Bug by Abby, Written by Abby

One day there was a girl named Tink, a friendly fairy. Most of her friends call her Tinker, some call her Tinkerbell or Tink.

Next morning she saw some snow flakes falling and she saw a sign that says "Frozen" this way ----> So she went there. 

She saw Rosseta, the flower fairy and she is also her friend.

She saw a sign of (picture of reindeer Sven) . She saw some reindeers and touched them.

The end.

Pretend Plays

Here at home they have a box full of costumes, props and what nots that they use in their everyday pretend play. I love how they can be princesses and superheroes one day and then chefs and halloween characters the next.

It's fun to be kids!

Mack in action

Gabbie's 7th Birthday (Late Post)

Still on Frozen fever, Gabbie personally chose it as the theme for her 7th birthday. So off we went to Divilandia to find their Elsa dresses and some decors and party stuff. We DIY'ed the table centerpiece and some additional ceiling decors. She had about a hundred adult and forty kid guests. From how she looked all throughout the party, we knew she was happy. Happy 7th birtday Gabbie!

Going up the bed

Here's Mack at eight months trying to go up from one bed on the floor to the other bed which is about 8 inches higher.

SSAM Family Day

It was our first time, so we were in full force. We left house early for the attendance then proceeded to the day's activities. We were in full battle gears with water and snacks to last throughout the day. But what's a fair without food trip and some tiangge shopping? Hehe. It was tiring but fun. Looking forward to the next :)


A weekend of some cake smashing and fun family photoshoot.

After a long time and a hundred of nights she would cry when her hair really gets hard to comb (tangles and all), she finally told me she wanted a hair cut. Not just trim, but cut, as in to cut it real short.

So right after her 7th birthday, we went to the salon for her makeover.

Bye bye, about 8 inches of mane. Til we meet again.

Mack's 9th month

Dear Mack,

On your 9th month, you have already caught up on the normal weight of a breastfed baby. You have learned how to go down the bed on your own and you have mastered crawling on all fours. You call me "mama" and you already say "ga ga" "ba ba" "ka ka" and when we ask you to call Ate, you would say "Aaaaaaahhh" in a loud voice as if you are really calling your Ate. You have also learned to eat on your own, picking up finger food from the plate and biting it and chewing the food with your two front teeth. You can cruise and stand on your own and you even let go and try to stand without holding on to anything sometimes. And boy you can gulp down several ounces of water already after eating your meal which is mostly rice with vegetables, fish and sabaw from tinola, nilaga, pinangat or sinigang.

We love you Mack!
