Mikka and her colors!

It took her longer to pick-up color identification compared to her ABC's, numbers, shapes, etc. We even thought she's color blind!

Our worries went away when she was able to match buttons of the same color when we asked her to. Now, we are so proud that she can nail her colors at 24 months! Regardless we are just happy with her learning progress. So so sooo proud of her.

Here's Part 1:


Part 2:

Mikka and her 32-pc Jigsaw Puzzle

My kiddo is obsessed with jigsaw puzzles! She would put together a few different sets of puzzles at home on top of what she already had at daycare --- in a day!! Wheeeeww, I thought that's a lot!

Whenever she's bored, she would mix puzzle pieces from different sets together (she has 12 pc sets, 24 pc sets and 32 pc sets and mix them all up) and then put them together accordingly. It totally amazes me how she could keep herself busy for hours!

I'm clueless of the puzzle skills other toddlers her age have. Part of me wants to see how she measures up with other 2 year olds. But I'm trying to avoid googling it since I didn't want to compare my baby to other kids. I still believe that each of them develop certain skills at their own pace. I'm just happy and proud that my baby can put together a 32-pc jigsaw pretty much on her own. I still remember my mom always always always brags about my younger sister being able to put jigsaw puzzles together when she was 2 (go figure where Mikka got it from and I can't be thankful enough!) So now, it's my turn to brag, haha :)

Yesterday, I checked on what she was doing in her room. So I tried to hide and took this video of her putting her barn animal puzzle together. She was sooo into it, she didn't even notice I was just standing there by her door. Be warned --- this is an 8-minute video, so be prepared to get bored, haha. Definitely not boring to me as I've been watching this video over and over until I passed out last night.

I am soooo proud of my daughter. She never ceases to amaze me and her dad... and her grams...and her gramps... heheeee. She's such a blessing. We love her so much!

Birthday cake baby doll

I know we're not going to eat this baby doll cake topper(yes, she's edible) but I didn't want to throw her away either. Poor thing, she's probably going to get stuck in the freezer for a long, long time.

Harajuku!!!

Maaan, I was at Nordstrom Rack and saw these cutesies for toddlers! Too bad they only come in 2T's (2 yr old's). The kiddo wears 3T's so she could wear them longer. Otherwise it's just a waste as kids grow up pretty fast so it's more practical to get 1 or 2 sizes bigger.

Anyhoo, maybe it's a blessing in disguise that they didn't have the kiddo's size or else I wouldn't be able to resist the temptation of getting my girl one of these. Sooo adorable!

Yay, done!

And it's only the beginning... still have lotsa stuff to take care of before the kiddo's "party" ;) I promise, next year onwards its going to be just spaghetti, hotdogs, cake at home!


For the Love of Dora!

Guess where am I going to use these Dora cut-outs? 4 done, 41 more to go... ha! I can do this! :)


Testing Mobile Blogger

Wow, the new mobile blogger for android just blows my mind. Sooo cool! Just like my version of mocha at work - swiss miss milk chocolate & freshly brewed coffee! Not bad! ;)

Got excused from Jury Duty



Not that I'm trying to excuse myself but the case is about DUI. Uhmm, totally partial when it comes to that. I'm sure everyone else shares my hatred about DUI but to me, nothing - no evidence, no witnesses or whatsoever could change my mind when it comes to DUI accidents. Alcohol and driving don't go together period. Not a criminal case but then again, still, my mind is so set. I'm totally partial to the injured party. Also, the case is estimated to last for 8 days. Whoah? Who exactly has 8 days??? Thank God, I was excused by the judge after I asked to talk to him and the lawyers involved in the case during break. 

Whoah. What a relief! I know, I'm just so so so bad, but I'm glad I didn't get to be a part of that case. Next please.

My Silly Sweetheart!!

I just have to blog about these incidents with my 23 month old daughter. Too funny it's a shame not to write about them :)

She's just sooo silly and witty!!! She never fails to brighten our days :)

1) Share!

The other day, I gave my daughter a small bowl of snacks when my phone rang. About a minute or so on the phone, I heard my daughter talking:

Kiddo: “You want some???”
Kiddo: “Say, thaaaank youuuuu!!!”

When I checked what she was doing, I saw her “sharing” her snacks with Skye. Good thing she didn’t let Skye eat from her bowl, haha :)

Maaan, can you believe it? She was asking our dog to say “thank you” :o)

Hahahaheee. I tell you, that moment, it felt like all my worries vanished into thin air! I was laughing my heart out!! :)

2) Pretty!!!

The kiddo handed me her hair bow before we left the house one morning.

Kiddo: “Mommy, put on, please?”
Me: “Ok, there you go” (as I put it on her hair)
Kiddo: “Pretty!!!!”
Me: “Yes sweetheart, you are very pretty!”
Kiddo: “Of course!!!!”

Hilarious!!!!

These are just a few of those little silly things my daughter does everyday. I wish she knew  how much she made our lives so much happier and brighter :o)

We love you sweetcakes!
