Going On 8.5 Months

I don't know what I did to deserve such lovelies. They brought smiles to my face, they crawls to me, climb to my laps and giving me the biggest smiles they have. They cheers everytime I get home, wanted to be held and picked up. I could go on. And they are getting so big so fast, 3.5 months from their 1st Birthday (in which I have started organizing!). They love to play with their little alphabet train, Winston loves his Piglet and Sanford loves to hold Winston's hands. When Sanford hold Winston's hands, Winston will giggles and they will just stare at each other. They are truly best buddies!

However, I just wanted to say, I love them so much. These little human being have made me the biggest sook, but that's where it ends lol because I'm still one of the mean machine at work and everywhere else where matter ;-)


ps. I have their Halloween costumes ready! Will post their pics when they wear them.

Shopping Online

I just realized, I haven't really shopped at the stores since my boys were born. Sure sometimes I was at the mall during lunch time. But it's not the same when I used to be the malls for hours instead of one hour, browsing in a hurry. Then of course you can browse online. There is no set business hours. It's 24/7 if you wish, the only thing missing is the changing room. But it's funny how once you get to order the right size a couple times, your level of confidence in buying online suddenly increase. You don't really care about not being able to try. After all your own mirror at home probably more real, so does the lighting. Plus with the convenience of being able to return if it doesn't fit, just that, convenience.

DH said, why do you bother? (returning and the hassle, he meant). Well..I have no answer for that. Time is everything these days and sometimes I don't have much of it. I'm either at work or I'm at home with the boys (weekend). So I cannot just pick up my purse and go shopping.

But you know what, I kinda like it. If I happen to be at the mall, then lucky me. If not, then it's always online when you need it. That said, I just noticed that you can finally shop online at, there you go...more for me and the boys :-)

Tried & Tested Part 1

I'm making a list of things that my boys tried in the past months (foods wise) and the verdict! I will probably have to update this in a coming months as they try more stuffs :-)

1. Gerber Rice Cereal
Tried: ✔
Verdict (Out of 5): ♥♥
Comment: Bought this at a very last minute when the boys' pedi told me to try to mix Winston's formula with cereal to help with his silent reflux. When his reflux gone, I gave this cereal for both Sanford and Winston as their first solid at 4 months, once a day- again as directed by their pedi. If I have time to do research, I won't pick it again. I tasted it, it was bleh. And as usual Winston cried eating this cereal by spoon.

2. Earth's Best Organic Whole Grain Oatmeal Cereal
Tried: ✔
Verdict (Out of 5): ♥♥♥♥♥
Comment: As soon as I'm done with Gerber, I bought Earth's Best Organic Oatmeal Cereal. The ingredients are just that, Oatmeal. Nothing complicated and it's organic too. The boys loves this and got mad when I didn't feed them quick enough when their mouth already open lol. They've been having this cereal and the multi grain (see no.3) since 4.5 months old for once a day, then at 5 months twice a day, from 6 months-cereal in the morning plus homemade veggie purees for dinner and currently cereal in the morning, fruit/veggie purees for lunch (at daycare) and veggie purees for dinner, all those in addition to maintaining 30oz milk a day or more (some days 30oz doesn't seem to be enough). Note: I tasted this, if I can eat it, I was so sure the baby can too and I was right.

3. Earth's Best Organic Whole Grain Multi Grain Cereal
Tried: ✔
Verdict (Out of 5): ♥♥♥♥♥
Comment: I'm alternating between this and no.2 above. Love them equally.

4. Yo Baby Simply Plain Yogurt by Stoneyfield
Tried: ✔
Verdict (Out of 5): ♥♥♥
Comment: Not too bad taste wise, but too watery for our liking and it was pretty annoying and hard to feed this to a baby in a spoon when it's like feeding them a water! I would love for the texture to be like the adult yogurt but in the mean time, I'm not buying anymore until maybe when the babies can eat on their own or just skip to adult yogurt instead.

5. Happybaby Organic Puffs (Green flavor) 
Tried: ✔
Verdict (Out of 5): ♥♥♥♥
Comment: They gave me faces when they tried this for the first time about 2 weeks ago at 7 months. The texture definitely something new to them. But I'm giving them an opportunity to learn how to chew especially since I can see that both of them are about to sprout their first tooth. A couple try later they loved it. I only gave them half puff at the time because sometimes they forget that they need to chew not swallow. By the way, I took a few myself while feeding them these. They are really yummy.

Missoni For Target Chaos

Ok,, you knew this is coming. But heck, your site were crashed for hours (since 7AM and seriously till now). I'm glad I got all the Missoni items that I wanted (except the pillows-darn it!) by visiting the store in a hurry on the way to work, fighting the crowds with mommies who practically just got out of bed and the babies were still asleep in their stroller. Not cool. I wanted to buy online, not going shopping at the break of the dawn and felt like Black Friday.

I will post some pictures tonight. As of now, they are sitting in my car looking pretty.
My haul:
2x Silk Scarves (zig zag and floral type)
1x Infinity Knit Scarf (zig zag brown)
2x Thin Scarves from girls section (zig zag brown and purple)
1x Stroller blanket

The thin scarves from girls section are super adorable. I thought it's going to be too short since it is designed for young girls, but they are perfect length for adult, especially when the weather is not too cold. If it's freezing you can wear the infinity scarf instead. Ladies stopped me at the register when they saw them and they were practically running trying to get them before anybody else notice.

Tried the shoes...they were so hard, I'm sure I will get blisters so I skipped.

Ugh I really need the pillows :-(


Update @ 1.02pm: I was finally able to get connected to after refreshing like a thousand times! Ordered my pillows--happy now!

Update @ 3.54pm: Looks like I love adding more stuffs. I just submitted an order for the crib sets for my twins. Gosh this line costed me so much.

Update @ 7.14pm: Group shot of my new buy. Will take pics of the pillows and crib sets when I received them.

Smythe Les Vestes Hunting Jacket

Love this hunting jacket. Love the baby blue. Pre-ordered over the labor day weekend (what else can you do during long weekend holiday???). Can't wait for the colder months. In fact I may wear this for my boys' first birthday in January. I should team it up with Emersonmade mod black dress. Did I say I LOVE this?

Missoni for Target Sept 13th

I'm SO buying these when they are coming out! I'm not big on wearing zig zags as a cardigan, tops or pants, so it looks like time to decorate my livingroom and wear a little more scarfs this winter.
