alex's second 2nd birthday

i know, i said we just had a simple celebration on alex's 2nd birthday. but i thought we owed it to alex to have a real children's party. she didn't have such on her 1st birthday. we have lots of filipino friends in singapore with kids of their own. so, i grabbed the opportunity. :)

see-saw, up and down
you go up and i go down

it took some time to plan, but it was well worth it. everyone enjoyed the gymboree activities, including the mommies and daddies. dora and diego was the main theme. i even dressed up alex in dora's colors, pink and orange, complete with the purple backpack :)) we had nice dora cupcakes, designs and some balloons too.

the wheels on the bus go round and round

happy birthday to you... foo!

thanks to our friends and loved ones for helping out. this wouldn't have been possible without your help. muah!

and of course, thank you for the gifts...

alex turns 2

this is long overdue, but here it is...

alex turned 2 years when we were in singapore. but i measure her weight and height only when we came back to bratislava. she weighed 12.5kg and was 91cm tall. for long time she stayed 12kg at 86cm. so imagine my surprise! she's really a tall girl.

anyway, we just had a simple celebration of her birthday. we went with inay and tatay to meet daddy at suntec. had lunch at a japanese restaurant, which mommy and daddy really likes.

for dinner, we had a few guests: inay, tatay, tita sharon, and ninang ganet and ninong romy. had shrimp, garlic mushroom , chicken (from carrefour), rice, and of course the bengawan cake. mommy also had some nice balloons inflated which she enjoyed, much to our delight.

lastly, the birthday gift...

breakfast conversation

mommy: alex, ninang jenny is coming here next week. do you remember her?
alex (nods head): mommy, do you remember tita gail also?
mommy: of course. do you remember her? and her babies?
alex (continues to nod head): ye-ees!
mommy: do you miss them?
alex: i think so! i miss them...
mommy: how about tita sharon, do you remember her?
alex: ah, ye-ees! ahtatata light blue.... tyatyatya.... (etc., etc....)

hehehe! that's our little conversationalist. she really can communicate, almost like an adult. however, she makes up some words and sentences when she doesn't know what to say anymore. to her, she thinks she's still making conversation. quite cool really! :)
