Ethan Jared turns One! part I


note: this is a month-old overdue post as i have been summoning up my wits and is procrastinating but i ran out of alibis to postpone it further..

the invite with elly, pato and of course, pocoyo!

date: august 30, 2010

time: 3-5pm
location: jollibee – puregold, malolos city
theme: pocoyo goes to jollitown



this is another milestone in my son’s book, his very first birthday!

we woke up the morning of august 31st a little bit late (what with the party jitters settling in, i can’t seem to sleep the previous night plus i went home a little late from picking up my son’s pocoyo cake and cupcakes from cupcakesforless and having a much-needed, well-deserved mani/pedi which was also a treat for myself since it was my birthday 2 days ago), anyway all i have to do is prepare my son for this afternoon’s event, since everything else is set for the party later!i got all the loot bags  and other party favors neatly stacked in a paperbag, jared’s babybag prepared the night before, the cool diy standee (more of do-it-by-tito, since i had everything done by my bro, ken), after some last minute tweaking from my brother is now stationary in a corner of the room waiting for some party action,and the cake and cupcakes stashed in a corner ready for transport. and yes, i’ve forgotten about the piñata, where is it anyway? only about 30% of it is finished and we have like what four hours or so before the party starts!okay, before i go into panic attack, took some breath to clear my chest and just relax…inhale, exhale, relaxing now…oh god, where are the cd giveaways!

                            these cuppies are way too cute and yummy too..ooops, that missing one

                                                  didn’t last the first hour i brought it home…
it turned out that we have yet to burn a few cd giveaways and attach the layout to them and finish the piñata and buy additional candies for the piñata as well, before we troop to jollibee for jared’s party.  okay i think that is manageable, there are 6 of us working simultaneously to get all the last-minute works done. no worries, no pressure, right? well easier said than done.  when it is your son who’s having his very first birthday and you are the one organizing it, i think i have all the right to panic now?!

Bye, bye brown curls, we will miss you when you’re gone….

Jared had his first ever haircut last September 17 . There is simply  no other choice that we opted for Cuts4Tots to have his curls done. Great facilities, accommodating staff and the person who cut my son’s hair just did wonderfully. However he managed to have Jared sit through the entire session beats me.  He’s just behaving at his best, sitting there, nary a care in the world, like he does it all the time. And I couldn’t be prouder of my son! 
Well, maybe the books and the toys did a little to let him stay put, plus Barney singing in a tv set in front of him must have done him good. You see that is his current fixation, enjoying the “I love You” song from the purple dino and friends.

The baby is well behaved
Cuts4Tots in Trinoma

Cuts4Tots service (Php 295.00) include the whole nine yards, with shampoo and blow dry (which i beg off since I just shampooed baby’s hair earlier, plus the idea of having his hair blown dry is not that tempting to me!). It also includes a certificate (for an additional sum of Php 195.00) with baby’s before-and-after-the-hair-cut pics and a lock of hair as a memento. And they even had the receipt under my baby’s name (how cool is that)! What more can I ask for?

Another milestone on my baby’s book and I have several photos here to document the occasion. It was a pleasant experience and am looking forward to more, so bring ’em on..how about you, how was your baby’s first haircut?
