I’m glad I changed the theme to butterfly instead of stripes. The lovely visitors enjoyed taking photos at the butterfly wings I cut out! Personally, I love the colors and most of all I love watching them loving what I’ve done! 🙂
Seeing them enjoying the party and the food was a joy. I ask nothing but for them to be happy on that day!
Syd had fun watching her friends and cousins having a good time. It was also lovely to watch them want to have a photo with Syd’s standee. 🙂
The best part was the opening of gifts. She had the biggest smile when she got a walking doll from her Lala. The doll is as tall as her. The delight was shown on her face. It was a priceless scene.
The kids who attended had fun with playing with the games. They got prizes for every win and even for mere participation.
And Syd was amazed at the hula hoop dancer 🙂 Since the party and she saw the hula hoop, she wanted to do it herself. I guess one of these days, her father has to give a smaller plastic hula hoop..? 🙂
The pabitin was a star that day. Adults and kids wanted to grab some hanging candies 🙂
I could not thank enough the Lord for the good things and blessings He has given to me and my family. Today my daughter turns 2, healthy, bubbly and loved by many.

Amazed look at the cake!
Her standee she loved to hug even after the party!
Since husband is away for work, the preparations could not be done alone. I needed the help of many which came so easily and given wholeheartedly. I am indebted to my neighbors who came to extend their services – cook, clean, decorate, celebrate! My daughter’s birthday was really a great day when I saw how kind people were ready to help unconditionally. I wish my girl grow up possessing the kindness, love and cheerfulness that the people around her brings and shares to us! I know with the kind of environment and people around us my baby could not go wrong… I am sooo thankful and forever grateful for the success of the party to all of them especially to God and my husband!
I’m glad my DIY’s look pretty and everyone likes the ambiance of the party. Everyone enjoy’s the food and butterfly DIY photo booth. Adults and children loved the butterfly tattoos, games and picture-taking. That’s all that matters. Happiness and enjoyment! That’s all I ask to God while preparing the party. I want everyone to enjoy and paint a smile on their faces until they leave party. Above all I want my daughter to enjoy her day. And I am absolutely overwhelmed how she danced with joy together with her little cousins and friends. Happy birthday my love! I’m a proud mother! 🙂
Remember your younger days when you look like her while eating ice-cream? Perhaps some of you don’t, some are just reminded by photographs and some are just told by your parents! It’s amazing how a kid eat or do something so innocent that they don’t mind what others think of them or of their looks.
I think this is my ny next favorite..!
This is the first time I let her eat Cornetto ice-cream and I think she really loves it! I don’t let her eat sweet food too much too often. When she gets one sweet food, I make it sure she has considerable amount. When she asks for more, I start diversion techniques until such she forgets she asks for sweets.
Since her second birthday is approaching, should I consider ice-cream booth for her party..? Thinking…thinking! I know the kids will love it, but I prefer cotton candy booth. Hmmmm…we’ll see then! 🙂
I want ice-cream for my birthday!
Taking a big bite. Yum!
Thank you Almighty for a wonderful month of August. There may be rough times that rocked our faith and existence but I’ve managed to live on the good ones that I’m going to treasure in my lifetime together with my family and daughter! It’s been a great month of celebrations, feasts, food and harmony. May our September be the same or more fun and blessed!
She’s about again today with giggles and smiles as she is attending her cousin’s 4th birthday. She loves party and she likes to be part of a group… not really a shy girl. Thanks goodness! 😀 I don’t want her to shrink and hide in a corner because she’s not comfortable with people. Fortunately, she is I hope she is… bubbly and friendly! Another thing I’m proud about her is she’s not a hyper child to the extent that she breaks things or make troubles with other kids that eventually embarrass the parents! 😀
With the birthday boy…cousin Achellis!

My little girl attending her cousin’s birthday party!
It’s been a year since I quit my job and opt to stay with my little girl. There were times I thought I need to go back to work but maybe I needed some pushing because I did not find a job rather I found myself comfortable at home doing what a stay-at-home mom does. I think whatever comes in the future that suits my choice of being a full time mother I accept with an open heart. I’m a hands on person so I’d rather look after my daughter myself and see to it that she got everything she needed. If there’s a job waiting for me in the future I would be happy to perform the tasks. But as for now, I’m more than happy to build a home… que sera sera!
