Costume #2

I've already taken Danica to the Pumpkin Patch and she has worn her Cupcake Fairy costume twice this week. So today, she is dressed as a Chinese Girl. She happen to have this chinese dress and a pair of chopsticks. What do you think? I love how it doubles as a Halloween costume.

Photography 101

Danica got her first camera today. It is actually my first digital camera. My dad bought it for me during an After Thanksgiving Sale at Best Buy many years ago. 2005 to be exact. At the time, the 7.2 megapixels came out at the stores and my dad paid $500 for it. I felt bad about the price and almost didn't want to ask him to buy it for me, but I thought, "Hey, I'll ask anyway." So I did, and to my surprise he said, "Yes." I couldn't believe it! I love him more for that! I recently found the camera while organizing my closet, I also found the charger for it. After a couple of hours of being charged, I pressed the power button and it turned on. Yippee!! It actually still works. Don't you just love finding something old and finding a use for it? So today, I pass it on to my dear daughter. I hope she enjoys taking pictures as much as I do.

Cupcake Fairy

Raul and I took Danica to the Pumpkin Patch at Pierce College last night. She was dressed as a cupcake fairy, complete with a cupcake headband and a cupcake wand. She had so much fun running around and watching other kids play. She is such a sweetie. I love her cupcake fairy costume!

Danica Bear

Isn't this bear hat just adorable? My friend, Marcie, whom I've known since High School made it. I love it! She also sent crocheted flower clips. Or is it knitted? I don't know the difference, to be honest. Anyway, we are so blessed to have such sweet friends who spoil Danica with love, prayers and also material items - whether they be clothes, accessories, toys, books... we are just so fortunate to be surrounded with beautiful people. God is so good for blessing us with family and friends who truly care. Thank you, friends, so much! In return, may the good Lord bless you more each day and keep you in His tender, loving care.

No More Monkeys

Danica loves to read her books. I read to her every day, and we go through at least 5 books a day. When I'm busy doing chores, she'll pick up her books and reads on her own. I'm not saying she can read now, but she looks at the pictures and makes up the story. Earlier, she was reading "Five Little Monkeys" and I heard her saying, "Five monkeys jumping, bump her head. No more monkeys on the bed." She gets the concept of the story by looking at the pictures, and of course, I read her books to her over and over.

Here's a photo from earlier today, taken right before she picked up her book:

Word of the Day

Danica is talking so much and growing each day. Today, she learned the word "princess." Her toy camera has a picture of a princess. I love the way she says it. She says, "pincess." Here she is being a "Pincess" in front of the mirror:

Hello Kitty Girl

My little Danica is super obsessed with Hello Kitty. Can you tell by looking at the photo above? LOL. Anyway, my friend Jackie, who lives in London, got her this super cute long-sleeve dress. It happens to match her old leg warmers and a balloon that Raul bought her last Sunday at Ontario Mills. I'm glad she loves Hello Kitty though... just like her Mommy =)

I Love Her

I never thought I'd be this in love with my little girl. Each day, I love her more and more. When I hear her say new words, when I watch her play, when I read to her... I love her more and more. When she sings a song, when she dances to a beat, when she smiles... I love her more and more. When she calls me Mommy, when she says Daddy, when she kisses me... I love her more and more. And even if she makes mistakes, later on in life... I will still love her, even more. She will always be my Danica Love.

Looking Good

I'm talking about my labs... haha... they're finally looking good. I went to Kaiser earlier to get my blood drawn. Just got the results not too long ago and so happy to finally see my liver enzymes close to normal. If you have been following my blog, then you already know that I've been having issues with my liver. At first, the doctors thought it was Graft-vs-Host, but later on found out that my high levels of Iron (due to multiple transfusions) may be causing it. So I've been having a unit of blood removed every month since August. And now it's confirmed that my elevated liver enzymes are due to elevated Iron in my blood. Glad that problem is finally getting fixed.

Here are some pictures I took of Danica at Kaiser, after I got my blood drawn.

When we got home, we ate lunch and walked Mr. Miyagi. And now it's official... every time we walk the dog, we have to stop and pick some flowers. 

She loves to smell the flowers.

She loves to kiss them.

She loves to play peek-a-boo with me, but only with one hand because she's holding the flowers with the other hand.

Mini Me

Danica is such a little Leica, I love it! She has my lips, nose, hair, eyebrows... and she even has the same characteristics and attitude I have. When I was younger, my dad used to call me "Echo" because I copy everything he says. Guess who's doing that now? Yup, Danica. She copies everything I do and say everything I say. Oh my! Raul calls her "Shadow."  I'm really glad to have a "mini me." I love everything about her.
