I can’t get over the fact that my baby is becoming a toddler. Although I still get to choose her clothes but she is starting to act on her own and chooses things here and there. I was so amazed when two days ago, we went to buy her a pair of sandals. She went to have her own way and bought something I don’t dare choose for her. I was about to return the sandals but she had her tantrums. Oh my goodness, she wanted to roll over the floor and calmed down when I let her hold the sandals. So when we went to the next floor to buy her a little bag, I let her chose between the bags she liked. I hope she doesn’t outgrow the sandals fast.
Since she is growing fast, she has outgrown most of her clothes and shoes. So I made a haul for my little girl and some were given by her aunts. She has worn them already and can’t help but adore her cuteness, maybe I am bias, but she is so cute.
Over the weekend, we went to her grandma’s house and since it is quite hot, I made her wear a cotton rompers with some Finding Dory slippers. The materials are light, airy and I like that it has buttons on the crotch area for easy diaper change. She had another rompers and I have to take it all off to change her diaper.
She had the cutest moment with her dad. They look really alike. I really like to take pictures of them both. They are the cutest pair especially when they have their petty arguments. I guess daughters will always have specials with their dads.
As much as possible we go to church as a family. We want to cultivate spirituality with our daughter. We are not at all very pious but we have a relationship with God. I love to dress her up fancy when we go to church but this time I made wear leggings and a stylized tank given by my sisters. I bought her a new pair of shoes because she will be a flower girl at her godmother’s wedding.
Seeing her in this outfit makes me realize that she is growing fast which makes me a little sad. My goodness I can’t even imagine her being a preteen or worst being a teen. I am very hopeful though. I will always pray for my daughter that she will lead a good life. It think that is every parents dream.
Around plain days either to run errands or just go somewhere casual, I like to just love to just team up a good pair of shorts and a airy tee. The Philippines is a warm country and humid as well. So I have to find her comfortable but still stylish clothes. And yes she is sporting her own finds, a gold sandal and tiger-faced backpack and nailed it like a pro. I bet if she sees Dora, she will absolutely love the “backpack” chant.
I am really taking my time and enjoy this stage of her life because someday I won’t be able to do this. I am trying to document as much as I can because good memories will always win in the long run. It will mold her and give her a good outlook in life.
