Some infants are born natural heavy sleepers while others are born light sleepers with a tendency to be irritable when tired. And for some light sleeper babies, their restless sleep patterns may extend from newborn age to toddler age, which can be quite tasking on parents who would lose hours of sleep to ensure their baby is well rested.
Dr Richard Ferber invented and propagated “Ferberization” as a means of helping parents avoid sleep deprivation issues by teaching their babies how to soothe themselves to sleep after a crying bout. Take note that most parents are wary of the Ferber Method, probably because they have to consciously ignore the natural parental instinct to cuddle their babies when they are being irritable and just allow their babies cry for a period of time before going to soothe them.
Restless nights are exhausting for both parents and the infant, and that’s why Ferberization is such a hit with experienced parents. Even pediatricians recommend this training for light sleeper babies who constantly require external comfort to sleep.
A lot of fuss and tantrums are to be expected seeing as babies are not born with the ability to adjust automatically to situations. Do not be perturbed by the crying sessions but ensure your baby’s cries are not due to any danger by keeping the environment safe and checking for danger signs during each visit. It will take some time, practice and would require loss of sleep time but perseverance does pay as your infant would get used to the routine and fall asleep better and for longer periods of time.

Greenies are a great gift for anyone who owns a dog with bad breath.
If you are shopping for a gift for someone who owns a dog you may consider getting them a couple of bags of greenies to improve their breath. Greenies are an all natural dog food additive that reduce the foul bacteria in a dogs mouth and stomach and make their breath smell less foul.
They are usually around five dollars a bag and can be purchased at your nearest Petco.
Consider this excellent gift idea the next time you go shopping for the dog owner on your list.
A gift certificate to the groomers is a great gift for a pet owner
If the pet owner you are shopping for is the owner of a particularly hirsute animal you may consider getting them a certificate for a grooming. The groomer will pamper the pet by bathing it, trimming its nails, and then giving it a haircut.
Pets don’t always love to be groomed so if their animal is less than comfortable around people this may not be the greatest idea for that pet. If the pet is social it is a fantastic idea. Both the pet and their owner will be ecstatic to have a nice clean animal running around the house.
Consider this idea the next time you go shopping for the pet owner in your family. They are sure to think it is a fantastic and thoughtful gift.
I have this awesome application on tablet that allows me to do art and sketching. Mommy and dada believes I am a good visual artist, to me nahhh it’s just okay but mommy finds my artwork unbelievable. Even my art teacher said that I am way advance beyond my years and that I am a very quiet girl and when she looked at my drawing, it amazed her.
Here is one of the many things I do on my tablet. Mommy found it to be so beautiful that she had to take a picture on it and share to her friends on Facebook. I just draw/sketch whatever comes to my mind. No one can dictate me what I should draw, if I don’t feel like it.. I don’t do it. However, if I am in the mood to draw something, guess what? Something would come out beautiful if I do.
Here is one the things we did in school, my bluegreen snake pot made with clay. I molded the body with my own hands to form the pot, this becomes the body of a snake. I chose a snake to show how much I adore reptiles, snakes specifically. I just think they are adorable.
Once the snake pot is done, the school heated it a little bit and I colored it with paint. Once done, they heated it some more. Since I chose to have a snake pot, I curled up the clay and kind of flatten it to make the base but then when it was done, it leaks. It does not hold the water. Have I know that, I would have sealed it real good for it hold some water.
I brought it home a day before our school has ended. Mommy and dada thought it was very pretty that I made a good job creating it. Mommy loves it very much. I am a bit disappointed for its leak but mommy encouraged me to just put my little valuables on it because it will still look nice like my purple mineral rock. I thought it was a brilliant idea!
Yesterday was a special and big day for me spiritual-wise. Thanks to my mommy who never give up sending me to Sunday school and tirelessly bringing me to all church activities in relation with my First Communion activities. Took me two years total in order for me to be qualified to achieve this greatest milestone that happened yesterday.
Mommy congratulated me after receiving my First Holy Communion at St. Batholomew Catholic church on May 20,2017. Thanks to her because if it wasn’t for her perseverance and encouragement , I would have not completed this. Now that I am done with this, we can take it easy and relax. Hopefully, when we move out in the country we can find a Catholic church to go to so I can continue to receive my communion.
Anyway, here’s me receiving the Eucharist from the priest, it was fulfilling and this Eucharist will serve as food for my soul.
Second picture is a group picture of the first batch of communicants, another batch followed right after us! Congratulations to all these kids too!
Look what I did to my nails! Aren’t they beautiful? Mommy find my nails gorgeous, these are just fake plastic nails that’s been sitting in my drawer for so long. I was bored last weekend and thought it would be nice to try on these nails. They are pink in color, not my kind of color but it sure was fun putting them on. Don’t worry, people, these are fake nails I glued on to my real nails.
I found them awkward to wear so after just an hour I took them off pretty easy and fast. In fairness, mommy could not stop admiring my nails and my hands after taking photos of them. She thought I have long candle-like fingers that look like that of rich people that don’t have callouses in their hands. I hope mine will stay like that when I grow up and doing some hard labor using my hands.
I have been to Iowa once in my life during my early years here in America. Visited a friend whom I met in Manila during my interview in US Embassy. She was nice enough to invite me over to their place and saw what it looked like over there where she lives. It is nice, it’s in the countryside in Knoxville but I also visited Des Moines briefly. It is not as big as where I live but at least there is a guitar center des moines where musicians can go buy their stuff in Guitar Center physical store.
Mommy and dada have known in the past that I love visual art. I started with scribble scrabble when I was a toddler as I grew older my drawing progressed because I have parents that encourage me to draw more and be creative. They bought me pencils, colored pencils and a set of paint for art.
I do art when I am bored or when mommy don’t allow me to be on the tv. In short, painting is done when I’m bored. Pictured below is my latest painting using just my finger tips. Mommy found my art cute and attractive that is why she is taking a photo of these two for keeps. She especially like the “rainbow tree” as I call it. The trunk is her favorite because I make it look like it’s natural and detailed. Something she does not know how to do it.
Different people have different preference when it comes to shopping for clothing, foods, home goods and even musical instruments. One may claim his or her favorite store is this and that, others prefer going to musician’s friend because they think it is the best music store for they find tons of great selections of products, used, brand new or highly rated by customers accessories and instruments. I cannot blame those loyal customers who prefer the musician’s friend for there truly is real good deal on this site.
I love all kinds of animals including fish! Here’s me and my sister so amused of the little fish that uncle Mike bought for baits. They are so cute and want to keep them but then they slowly died. We had no choice but use them as baits and release those that we didn’t use rather than keeping them in a tight and small container and wait to die.
Mommy sees the fish and drooling over them. She said that she wants to make a soup out of these fish! That’s what she is always thinks of food every time she sees some fish. For me, I love them as a pet not for food.
