and another one...
Music lover, eh?

I can't believe that he's indeed growing up and maturing so fast. His interests even abruptly change. Aside from the DVD compilation of Mr. Bean that we bought him, he also loves watching his funny idol on my iTouch. His favorite episodes so far are the Mind The Baby, Mr. Bean (theme park adventures) and the episode wherein Mr. Bean does crazy antics before he wakes up and rise from the bed one morning. I love watching the little one laugh his heart out over Mr. Bean. And I sincerely believe that he's getting Mr. Bean's comical nature already. He likes making silly faces and he enjoys the attention he gets every time we laugh at his crazy antics. He's surely my Mr. Bean and having him is like having anti aging creams from www.wrinkleeyecream.net because he knows how to make me laugh, smile and look and feel young through his silly antics.
I really do wonder where does Asher get all his energy in a day. I know that it’s natural for boy toddlers of his age to be active but in his case, he’s extraordinarily robust that I’m having a hard time keeping up with him. He has mastered to go up and down our stairs and he does it all by himself now. I just always remind him to on hold tight on the rails to which he would reply “Careful, Mommy?”. On the last step of the stairs, he loves jumping then goes up and jumps down on the floor over and over. He jumps on the bed, on the sofa, everywhere. No wonder why my son does not get fat despite his huge appetite these days. He seemingly has the best fat burner with all the energy that he’s stored for the day.

I can't believe that I'm talking about potty training now. My son's indeed growing up so fast. The next thing I know, I'm lecturing him on how to prevent pimples come adolescent years. Yikes!
Next to my laptop, my iPod Touch is my second most favorite gadget that I have in possession. Aside from the on-the-go internet feature it provides (our router and modem now run 24/7), this is my stress-buster and my sleep aid when the Dream Fairy refuses to visit me just yet. Other than that, this also serves as Asher’s favorite tool to watch instantly his baby videos, Youtube videos of Mr. Bean, Yo Gabba Gabba, Barney, Dora, etc. In fact, he has rightfully claimed this as “his” already. He has learned at his early age to maneuver and find his way to the right videos he’s meaning to watch. Very techie, huh?I’m just uploading to Youtube a video of him tinkering the iPod. I’ll share it here once the upload completes.
As promised, here's the uploaded video:

I really admire those who have a knack with hairdressing and makeup application. I have my complete makeup tools and supplies with me but honestly, they are all under utilized especially the non-neutral colors. Mixing and matching colors is among my weaknesses when it comes to this thing. I always just stay with the colors that I’m most comfortable with. This is exactly the reason why I have always wanted to enroll in a beauty school similar to Regency Beauty Institute. Located in Minneapolis, MN, It is the fastest growing beauty school in the industry and throughout the United States. Their graduates are well recognized and highly demanded in US salons, cruise ships and runways. I believe that with the proper learning and basic guidance, I know, I’ll get more confident and skilled in applying makeup.

The husband is a basketball buff so he’s delighted that his son has developed an early interest with this sport. He has so many balls of different colors and sizes and he certainly knows that they’re for shooting to the baskets just like how he did when we went to Timezone. Oh boy, he surely has the early knack for shooting balls as he made about 8 points (about 4 shots) all by himself in this mini-basketball arcade.

Prior the game, assortment of candies, plastic toy animals, faux gold coins or those foil wrapped sweets are scattered in the play area. The gold coins, of course need not be genuine similar to those that can be found in the huge collection of the US Gold Bureau. But if there's a budget for such a precious collection, why not. The parents of the kids in the party would be more than delighted to have those. A time limit will be set and the kids will scour the whole area and collect as much coins as they can get. The winner, of course, is the one who collects the most. This is surely a fun and exciting game for the kids as they portray a Jungle Gold Hunter role.

* Can speak clearly most of the time. He still finds difficulty though in pronouncing the words with letters "R", "G" and "H".
Examples:* Can concentrate intensely on one activity especially when playing and tinkering the iPod.
"tok-tok-dile" = crocodile
"gamot" = damot (medicine)
"ba-ay" or "aws" = bahay (house)
"Balney" = Barney
"Dola" = Dora
* Can discern the difference of "small" and "big".
* Can wear and take off his shoes on his own.
* Recognizes a few letters of the alphabet and numbers: "A, B and L" and numbers "1, 7 and 8". He sometime interchanges 7 and letter L; B and number 8.
* Can understand the "why" behind certain rules like no running because he'll get an ouchie if he stumbles down.
* Tries to put on his sando and nfl t shirts on his own but he isn't successful most of the time.
* He's almost 100% potty trained: can control his daytime and nighttime bowel and daytime bladder control. He still refuses to sit down though on the toilet bowl when doing number 2.
* Says sorry to Mommy when scolded after misbehaving.
* Has become more sweet and affectionate. He says "mommy (or daddy), i labu" out of the blue.

My 2 year old son, Asher, is too young still to wear watches. But I’m impressed because as young as he is, he already knows what watches are for and where it is worn. He also knows that the term watch is for telling time so if you ask him what time is it, he looks at his wrist as if he has an imaginary watch and reply “o’clock, o’clock” in glee. He’s indeed growing up so fast. Before I know it, I’m buying him his first watch and just a few years more, I’m certain that he’ll be drooling over the more luxurious and pricey signature watches like the IWC Watches from Lussori. Lussori is a CA-based retailer of luxury timepiece and jewelry brands like Hermes, Omega, Zenith, Dior, Mont Blanc and Chopard. I know I’m currently yakking about time and watches but can I just ask if we can stop the time as my baby is growing up too fast?
