Homogenized milk and Daycare

Since we arrived here in Montreal, i started introducing 3.25% homogenized / fresh milk to Elyse but i wasn't successful. She still prefer the Nestle formula or follow-up milk. For the past couple of days, i started mixing it again in her daily diet and yesterday she wasn't aware that she's already taking pure homo! I'm so happy that finally she didn't bother to ask for "new milk" or "change to other milk". I was waiting for her reaction but she took it just like her formula.

I'm still actively searching for a good daycare.. the reason why I'm not visible in the blogosphere these days. I have visited a lot of daycare and I'm so so happy that i found a very good, clean, organized and educative daycare just 10minutes away from my place. The Romanian owner is very nice, she's a bit strict with her policies but i guess she can work things out. I guess she's experienced in her field, i trust her and i know she can take care of Elyse. I was surprised when she told me not to bring Elyse's feeding bottles, and on her first day i don't even have to stay, it's a bit strange, I'm getting nervous too because I really don't know what will happen. But she assures that Elyse will get used to it. According to her, "she will be fine!". She told me not to worry too much. She knows the feeling of a first time mother and leaving my precious daughter behind will never be easy, most especially she is my only child but she made me understand that it's only for the best. It will be the first time that Elyse will stay in the daycare and will be away for 8 hours a day, 5 times a week. So, my husband who was also surprised, laughed over things after i told him the scenario. He said "good luck" to her and hoping she can easily pull things off.

Now, we are always telling Elyse that soon she will go to school and she just have to be nice to her classmates and teachers, that mommy and daddy will go to office so she can have more toys. She said "yes" but this morning when she woke up and i was not beside her, Fred told her that mommy is in the office.. she cried a lot and screamed "mommy, mommy!". Well, good luck to us! September 8 is her first day in the daycare. I hope that Elyse will cooperate well with us! I really hope that "she'll be fine!".

Happy weekend to all!

LP # 22 Ayaw Ko

Ang unang beses na sya ay ginupitan ng buhok. Dito ko sya nakitang nagwala ng ganito. Noong una enjoy sya sumakay sa mini car na upuan, ngunit nung i-ready na sya para sa gagawing paggupit ng kanyang buhok, sya ay nagsimula ng umiyak at sumigaw ng "No!" Maligayang araw ng Huwebes sa lahat!

LP # 20 Liwaliw sa Disneyland Paris

Ang aking pamilya ay mahilig magliwaliw, siguro ito ang pinakagusto naming gawin. Isa sa mga lugar na na-enjoy namin ay ang Disneyland sa Paris. Pakiramdam ko, kahit ako ay bumalik sa pagkabata. Ang aming anak na 2 taong gulang ay sobrang nag-enjoy din sa kanyang mga nakita lalo na sa "It's a small world" na ride. Ito ang isa sa mga paborito nyang kantahin at laruin. Ang kanyang mga laruan ay madalas nyang pinaglalaruan at pinaiikot na animoy nakasakay sa carousel habang kinakanta nya ang "It's a small world". Maligayang araw ulit ng Huwebes sa lahat at ang aking pagbati sa matagumpay na EB!

LP # 19 Ako up-close and personal

Ito ang ilan sa mga paborito kong gamit. May mga istorya ang bawat gamit ko na nasa larawan. Ang pinakamemorable syempre ay ang aking wedding ring at ang "replacement" sa aking engagement ring. Sa hindi po nakakaalam, ang aking "original" na engagement ring ay nawala 3 araw bago ako ikasal. Nanghihinayang pa rin ako hanggang ngayon kapag naaalala ko ang buong pangyayari. Yan ay nawala sa Mendez spa sa SM Megamall habang ako ay nagpapamper ng sarili ilang araw bago ang aking big day. Inisip ko na lamang na siguro may mas importante pang bagay na darating sa akin at mas marami pa ngang blessings ang dumating. Salamat sa pagbabasa at maligayang araw!

Something "new" is coming!

Hello! How's everybody? As you all know, we had a busy weekend with our guests and just this morning they left to Mississauga. Last Saturday we we're not able to watch the fireworks display because of bad weather. It was raining since afternoon so, we decided to stay in the house. As a tradition here in Montreal, every summer they are hosting a fireworks competition and competitors will present their fireworks every Saturday at 10pm.
While yesterday, we tour around Montreal and visited the St. Joseph Oratory, Notre Dame Basilica, Eaton Center and the Old Port. Although with some rain showers, I'm glad we managed and took some nice shots. Of course we didn't forgot our favorite ice cream at the Old port. I guess I'm now having sore throat because of that. I'll post some of our pictures here later. For now, I'm excited to do something "new". I'm so happy and so glad.. but i will post more about the "new" thing in my life soon. See you around and Happy Monday to all!

I did this lay-out last week and thought of sharing it. ;)
