christmas has officially started at home

christmas, holidays

christmas has officially started at home two sundays ago, a bit early if you ask me, but mum had a bit of a downtime so she was able to fix our christmas tree, with the help of my tita, of course. i guess it took them only a few minutes to fix the tree. ours is quite a tall tree at 6 feet but it was surprisingly easy to put up.

christmas, holidays

mum put the tree just under our stairs in front of the fridge, as there are no other space available to accommodate it, since we’ve got quite a limited space here compared to our old house.

mum + dad bought our tree last year, along with the blue + silver balls, blue christmas lights + other ornaments. mum said we need to add more ornaments to add a bit of color to it. what do you think?

my musical stack + ball game toy

toys, play, toddlers, toy stories

one of my most favorite toy is this yellow elephant-like stack + ball toy. mum + dad got this when i was about to turn 1 + i’ve really had loads of fun playing with it. how do i play it? i stack up the colorful rings made of fabric which make up the body of the colorful elephant. when i am done i take out the colorful balls from the hole + drop it on top of the elephants head. the balls have beads inside so they make beautiful sounds when they move. the bottom of the funnel-like plastic body also makes wonderful sounds when you drop the ball inside it, which makes playing time all the more fun…

sometimes, mum would also try to make fun of me by using the fabric stackables as improvised headbands, she would put one on her head + the little one on mine, which i’d automatically remove since i really do not like putting anything on my head. my mum would then break into peals of laughter. funny mum, won’t you agree? 😉

my toy has been particularly silent for awhile now as it runs out of battery, so i hope mum can get me some batteries very soon so i can play with my toy again.

kids in doodles: bathtime funtime

kids in doodles, toddlers, play, bathtime

it is a monday once again + time for another kids in doodles edition. sorry mum’s posting this week’s meme late. we were out very early in the morning for some errands + some fun time down at the provincial capitol park {too bad mum was not able to bring our camera to snap some shots}. we also went on our very first playschool hunt + i kindly liked the atmosphere inside a classroom with several little children like me are learning + singing abc’s! it was absolutely the coolest!

K.I.D, kids in doodles

anyway before i went on to share my story for the week, i would just like to thank everyone who participated in last week’s kids in doodles: check out some cheeky comments at maLyth‘s entry, the techie playdate at Little Zoie’s Steps, check out the funny + fun side of her family at mommy-jheng‘s entry, see how Iris Joehanna’s day in the mall was, watch how creative little children can be at Our Home and Haven‘s post, be in awe at this picasso-ish masterpiece by D at Mirage‘s post + check MommyandMatt as they check out a very cool art exhibit.

also, notice how our linky for last week was peppered with uber cute thumbnails of your lovely posts? mum + i would like to give virtual hugs + kisses to tita Mirage for generously sharing her inlinkz with us. thank you! mwah!

now, on with this week’s kids in doodles

kids in doodles, toddlers, play, bathtime

i guess i have grown tired of my bathtub so i am moving on to experiment more exciting things in the bathroom + just a few weeks’ back, i tried hopping from my tub to our big pail. we use this big container to store water overnight just so we will be sure to have enough water supply the following day. + yes, i was having a funtime bathtime at a big pail full of overnight water. it was particularly cold..brrr..but who cares, it was also extra fun + i really had a great time 😀

it was also a good thing mum allowed me to play in the water for a little while longer before scooping me up + dressing me up. i guess, it helped that she was busy preparing something in the kitchen as she watched over me play in the pail, that she lost track of time, which resulted to a longer playing time in the water for me 😉

kids in doodles, toddlers, play, bathtimeit was such a bathtime funtime + i am hoping i can repeat the act soonest. i just wish my allergy will go away so that mum will allow me to dip in the water longer after giving me a bath.

now it is your turn to share your kids in doodles stories. tell!

donning a polo for the first time

kids style, toddlers, kids fashion,

some would say girls have all the fun when it comes to kids’ fashion + style, but i guess my mum + most mums with little boys will beg to differ. although limited, we also get to have our share of funky + stylish fun in our own little boys’ way. just check out this ensemble mum fixed {in a hurry!} for me last halloween.

kids' style, kids fashion, toddler

mum said this is my boy-next-door look, would you agree? 🙂

  • polo: hand-me-down from kuya sean
  • shirt: my summer shirt from spin {big & small co.}
  • shorts: big & small co.
  • shoes: check slip on, big & small co.

we are quite a big fan of big & small, can you tell? 🙂 my mum liked that their pieces are best to mix + match with the rest of my little wardrobe.

this is my first entry to :
