Video Monday: Infant says “Hello”!

Watch how a mom gets a sweet “Hello” from her 3-month old baby. This is so adorable that I am giggling after watching it.

Video by: Youtube

Some say it is just coincidence but I believe it is not. The baby is cooing what she heard from the mom. The same thing also happened to us when, Little H, at 4 months old cooed “yeyow” right after Daddy S said to him “do you like yellow? Yellow, yellow, yellow”.  I just wished we were able to capture it too just like this mom did! Of course, we tried making Little H repeat it but he did not. Too bad!

I hope this video made you smile just like I did. Happy Monday!

DIY Project: Drawer Dividers

Boxes are very useful because it is durable but at the same time very light weight. It does not easily rip and get distorted.

Recently, we got a drawer cabinet for our room.  However, I still want the drawer to be organized so I decided to make use of the box cartons as drawer divider or organizer.

 Here is how I did it:

1. I measured the size of the drawer to make sure that the box will fit in it.

2. Since the box lid is on top (if standing vertically), I sealed the lid with a packaging tip.

3. I placed it horizontally and cut the top part.

4. If you do not have much time or if the boxes are decorative enough as it is, you may not design it anymore. In my case, I decided to use pages from old magazine to wrap the boxes not only for decorative purposes, but to cover the hard edges which is usually caused by the blade from the scissors.

Here is the finish product.

 also made small containers from these boxes and wrapped with some used gift wrappers.

I am loving recycling so much! Want to be more fun? Involve your kids when you do projects like this. It develops their creativity and they will become natural recycling-loving individuals too as they grow up.

Photo of the Week: Big heroes visits Little Heroes

We all need superheroes to save the day. Even if “saving the day” means putting a smile to a sick child’s face when they need it so much. It may seem little to some, but for these kids, it can spell the difference between “giving up” and finding hope.

An excerpt from NYDailyNews.com: “The “Captain America” actor donned his red, white and blue costume Saturday during a visit to the Seattle Children’s Hospital”,  about a month after fellow Marvel superhero Chris Pratt stopped by a Boston Charity  dressed as his “Guardians of the Galaxy” character, Star-Lord.”

“AMAZING day at @seattlechildren (with) @prattprattpratt,” Evans tweeted. “Met some TRUE super heroes! Feeling inspired, blessed, touched. Thank you (with) all my heart.”

Great job Captain America!

A Legomovie Themed Party for EA

“Awesome @ 7″! That is our official tagline for EA’s 7th birthday party. He has always been a very shy boy and for a time her really did not like the idea of having a party and having all the attention to him. But big school experiences that started last year made him more confident. He (finally) agreed to celebrate his 7th birthday (much to my delight!) by having a party! If you are thinking of having the same theme for your child, you might be able to get some ideas from our party. Most of our party ideas are from the internet!

The invitation are the guests first impression of the party. The format I got from the internet but changed the icon to “Emmett”, the lead character from the Lego Movie.
