Poor Sofie ready to retire after over 4 years of being both kids' favorite teething toy...
Thank you Sofie for the fond memories :)

I will have to get back to my writing mojo.... I felt like I skipped a whole year... (oh heck yeah, I didn't blog for more than a year!!!).
Let me try to get better at this, not just for me, but of course for my kids....
I will write tonight... yes, tonight. Now let me finish my work so I can go home to my hungry kids and cap the day with updating my blog... yay!!!!

Yay, after almost 3 weeks of my love-hate relationship with my Medela Symphony (I rented it), finally, this is the most I got (1.5oz from both breasts)! Even if this sounds pathetic to most EPing moms, I am just so happy this is the most I was able to express from me ;).
Don't get me wrong, I get super jealous with moms who could pump at least 2oz for each breast for every "pumping session". But at the same time, I didn't want to stress myself because I know I am different from other moms & that a little breastmilk is just so much better for my newborn than nothing at all. As long as I give the best I can then I am a happy momma ;)

Yay, the kids' closet is ready ;) They will be sharing the same room eventually and so we decided to do some tweaking on the old closet and made it more functional. I love it!
9 more weeks and Mikka's baby brother is coming ;) Hope we'll be ready by then. Seems like it's harder to get things ready this time around...

We went for another scan last April 26 and it was confirmed that we are having a baby boy! Wahhooo!!!
There you go, I finally "announced" it here in my blog :)
Found out we are pregnant last January 9. Soooo happy! Since our toddler is getting bigger, we thought we want another one so we started trying last December. Then come January, we're pregnant! Can't believe it was that fast! We feel so blessed!
I didn't have any gender preferences but it's nice to have one of each :) Hubby said he didn't have a preference as well but I know in his heart he was super ecstatic to when we found out we're having a boy :)
Oh my goodness, I can't believe Mikka is going to be a big sister! She's so excited by the whole thing. She even reads books to her little baby brother (yes, she talks to my belly!)
Thank you Lord for all the blessings!

He was pretty upset with me because he said all he wants is to see Mikka and I only video'd her reading the book focusing on the words she was reading. Suffice to say, I didn't take clips of her face. He said he wants to see his grandchild's face. Yeah, he has a good point.
So now, I had to re-take a video of the kiddo reading but this time I had to show her face on the camera as well as the words she's reading. It's a bit of a challenge but it's worth the shot.
Anyhoo, this is her reading "Crab Trap" from the same pre-reader series of books I got online. She's really into these books compared to the BOB books we got her a while back. These books have better illustrations that kept her interest. Plus the fact that these come with stickers that your kid could put on the book everytime he/she reads the book on his/her own from beginning to end. It surprises me how good of a motivation it is for my 3 year old.
She is gaining a lot of confidence reading these books on her own. She didn't even want me to help her anymore. She said she's reading it for the baby inside mommy's belly. She calls the baby "my baby sister" although we didn't know if it's going to be a girl or a boy. Hahahahee :)
Hope you enjoy this video as much as we do. We are so proud of our little sweetheart.

This is the 3rd time we're reading this book and everytime she gets to read the entire book from cover to cover, she gets a sticker she puts in front of the book as her prize. She got her 3rd sticker for this book towards the end :)
She's doing pretty awesome for a 3 year and 1 month old kid :)
We like that she didn't just memorize the book, she's actually reading the words :) That being said, we can give her any simple books and she could read read them. I love these kinda books because they are so simple that pre-readers like my daughter could gain a lot of confidence because they can them on their own.
We are so proud of her :)

We will forever be grateful to the AZ RESCUE team for saving you from the kill list. We found you through them and life has never been the same for us. I always think you saved us more than we saved you. Thank you for choosing us.

Wahoooooo! This thing took me and hubby more than an hour to put together! So much for their claim saying that in 10 mins you'd have a picture wall with the template they provided.
I was going to surprise hubby that I've done it on my own while kiddo was asleep (and hubby at work), but he came home and I was still working on this thing.
It's alright though, I think it's worth the time and effort ;)
Now all I need to do is to put real pictures on them ;) Yay!!!

They said that your entry way through your main door has got to be clean, open, inviting and clutter free for good luck... so I cut the old plant by the entryway that was blocking the view of the door from the outside and planted some bright colored flowers instead (see those cut off tree trunks of my previous plants in there?) ;) I have to get the old plants pulled out from their roots as well. Once they're gone, I'm going to plant more winter flowers next to these guys.
I think I'm beginning to like "gardening" a bit (if you can even call it that). I have 3 more flower beds in the backyard that's screaming like "hey, you owe me some flowers!"

This is by far the most cool looking inhaler I've ever had ;)

Crap, we passed out super tired of all these work going on in our house. It's 2am, I woke up and realized I wasn't able to prep something for kiddo's lunch.
Whipped up something real quick from the almost empty fridge and here's the best I could come up with - ham, cheese and pineapple pizza on toasted english muffin.
Oh boy. Here goes nothing.
