Board like this!

I want this for my boys room!

We are going to be re-decorating a few things in the house when we arrived later this month. So I was thinking that maybe I can put something like this in the room of my eldest:) He loves to draw…I’ll ask the husband if it’s possible:)


Types of Play for your Child

Here are some guidelines for the types of play your child may be most interested in at different stages, according to Catherine Marchant, a play therapist at Wheelock College in Boston:

Social play
Interacting with you and others is important throughout the first year. Infants like to smile, look, and laugh. Older babies enjoy games such as peekaboo and itsy-bitsy spider.

Object play
Touching, banging, mouthing, throwing, pushing, and otherwise experimenting with things is fascinating for the 4- to 10-month-old set.

Functional and representational play
Pretending to use familiar objects in an appropriate way — pushing a toy lawn mower over the grass, or calling Grandma with a hairbrush, for instance — is the height of fun for 12- to 21-month-olds as their imaginations begin to blossom.

Early symbolic play
This type of play, common around the age of 2, creates something out of nothing. Your child might play with a shoebox as if it were a school bus, complete with motor noises, for example, or pretend to eat a plastic ring, insisting it’s a doughnut.

Role play
Around 30 to 36 months your little actor will begin taking on new roles. Playing doctor, teacher, or mommy is common now.

Plastic baby bottles

I knew about this way before I had my first boy! I think when I was preggy that time that I read somewhere that plastic bottles isn’t good for babies! Here’s a post I read somewhere.

Plastic baby bottles are thought by a lot of moms to be heaven-sent, and have become favorite gifts during baby showers most are being banned and taken off shelves.

New studies are showing that a chemical ingredient in polycarbonate infant bottles is a toxic. Bisphenol-a or BPA, found in popular plastic baby bottles, is said to mimic the human hormone estrogen and had caused long-term changes in test animals exposed to it. Children up to the age of 18 months were the most at risk from BP. The side effects? Behavioral and neural symptoms later in life, including early puberty in girls; reproductive issues and maybe certain cancers. Adults have less to worry about, as exposure levels need to be extremely high before it proves to be unsafe.

The bad buzz was enough for a senator in the US to introduce a bill banning the use of BPA-containing plastics in other children’s products: toys and food containers, among other things. The ban extends only to polycarbonate plastics so you don’t necessarily have to give up using all plastic baby bottles, although experts recommend switching back to good old glass ones. If you must use plastic, look under the bottle and check for the numbers 2 or 5, as these stand for the far less reactive polypropylene and polyethylene. Steer clear of the number 7 – this is BPA-laden polycarbonate. And no matter what plastic you use, skip the microwave because high temperature breaks down the container’s ingredients which may leak into your food.

Be safe!

Sorry for not being able to post updates at this blog yet again. Been busy with real life. I really wanted to post something but I didn't feel like to. And to top to that that we are currently having a fabulous family vacation and the kids have been enjoying a lot! I actually posted photos in my Flickr and even in my main site. To those who lurk around here and check updates, you might want to peek there;) This vacation is not in Mexico though like the site that I came across! We're just scared of the flu there right now. But maybe someday we are going to be spending a vacation in Karisma Hotels! Someday! I've heard rave about the place and I couldn't take off the idea about the place!
