Cedro walking around Stoner Park // Los Angeles, CA // 28 September 2011

Cedro has been walking for a month now, but in the past week he has made the switch from a crawling to a walking preference.  He really enjoys it, especially when he has something in his hand(s) like food!  We like to take him to the park where he is inspired by the other kids walking and running around.

We have lots of other videos of Cedro walking which are earlier and higher quality but this one captures best how far he can go and perhaps has him in the cutest outfit of all!  Thanks to Lola for the transistor radio muscle tshirt and to Kuya Issei for the Molo sweatshirt, Kea + Joby pants and AWESOME surfer shoes!!!


(Yes.  The nearby park is REALLY called Stoner Park.  It’s on Stoner Avenue.)

Uncle Danny recently went to Disneyland and came back with a ton of new clothes for me!  Check out this great FUTURE NERD onesie that he got!  I love it!  I crack up when Tita Ging calls me that!

Chick Magnet

It’s true. Cedro is a major “CHICK MAGNET.” Watch out, ladies!

This onesie was given to Cedro at his Tita Ging’s wedding. But it was so
chaotic, we’ve forgotten WHO gave it to us! The gift merely said “To Cedro.”
If this onesie is from you, please let us know! He also got another baby blue
onesie that says, “I still live with my parents” along with this one. Thank you
to whoever you are!

I’ve entered the 2010 Gap Casting Call!  Please vote for me!  I am contestant 489895!  Just click on this link and vote for me EVERY DAY until November 14! (Please note that the Gap site tends to be verrrryyyy slowwww during the day so if you can’t get through, try voting in the evenings.  Another way to vote more easily is to page through the GALLERY of Baby Boys and click on the “Fan Vote” button under each of my photo thumbnails.  Keep in mind that not all 5 of my entries are grouped together due to the high volume of submissions.)

I know it seems silly for me to be working so soon as a supermodel, but it’s so easy for me to be so darn cute and adorable!  It doesn’t feel like work at all.  If I win, I get a professional photo shoot out of it!  This would help Mama and Papa document my cuteness!  Plus, I could be a part of a Gap ad campaign.  Then I could REALLY share my cuteness with the world!  And last but not least, I could win a $1,000 Gap gift card.  Wow!  That’s a lot of BabyGap clothes!  And you KNOW I love clothes!  (Well… I love pooping and peeing and therefore, changing my outfits at least twice a day!)

I have other entries that you can vote for, too!  See below.

So remember…… VOTE FOR CEDRO!  Please help me spread the word to all your friends and family!!!  I’d appreciate it!  Thank you!

Saturday Adventure in Rolling Hills Estates

Kayla-Oneechan watching over me

Papa has a lot of work to do so Mama took me out to visit Auntie Chahee and Kayla, one of my Japanese big sisters or “Oneechan” in socal.  With Auntie Sarah’s help, we hit the road and had lunch with them at Pho Hana.  Mama usually can never finish those gigantic bowls of pho.  But not today!  She finished her chicken pho!  I can’t wait to taste it in Mama’s milk!  The restaurant is a perfect place for families with kids.  We got to eat in a special kids’ room which looked like we were at Chuck E. Cheese!  And Mama was able to breastfeed me comfortably.

After lunch, the ladies and I indulged in a Starbucks run.  Mama really misses coffee so it was a special treat for her to try a decaf Toffee Mocha Frapuccino.  It was perfect for this hot day.

We were supposed to hang out at Auntie Chahee’s new apartment but Mama got distracted by the TJMaxx store.  This was her first time and she found so many amazing deals.  For example, she was surprised to find my special bottle — the Breastflow bottle.  She and Papa bought me my 5 oz. bottle at the Pump Station in Santa Monica for about $5.50.  At TJMaxx, Mama found a 3-pack of 9 oz. Breastflow bottles for only $7.99!  I’m not drinking 9 oz. in one sitting yet but I WILL soon! …  It was so great to have Auntie Sarah there with us.  She and Mama had a blast picking out cool clothes for me.  (I needed more long-sleeved tops as natural SPF for this sunny socal weather.)

Before heading back north, we stopped by Auntie Chahee’s place nearby.  Even though I was snoozing and not complaining at all during our day trip, Mama really needed to change my diaper!  This was her first time trying out Auntie Jan, Uncle Shaun and Maxine’s present to me — a Patemm changing pad.  (See photo above)  Mama thinks it’s a supercool concept for its circular design and pattern AND for the fact that it was invented by a Filipina!

I could tell that Kayla-Oneechan was very curious about me.  I can’t wait to play with her and practice my Japanese when I get older!

We concluded our lazy Saturday back up at Tita Ging and Uncle Danny’s place and watched a bunch of movies and TV shows (Mama and Tita Ging’s favorite hobby).  What a fun day!!!

My First Bib

23 Sep

© Photo by Ardith Ibañez NishiiI’m a breastfed baby so I don’t usually spit up, but today I did… BIG time!  So much that both Mama AND I had to change our clothes!  So, my mom decided that it was time to whip out the bib collection.  We have dozens and dozens of bibs — both hand-me-downs and brand new ones.  Deciding which bib was a no-brainer.  Mama picked out my camera bib that Tita Ging bought for me when we first moved from NYC to LA.  I wasn’t even born yet!  Isn’t it cute?  It makes me look like an artist just like my mom and dad!  It’s from Mama’s favorite neighborhood gift shop, Blackmarket, on Sawtelle Blvd.

I’m also sporting a gray-blue onesie from Auntie Alice and Uncle Sammy.  It’s from a cute shop called Peek… Aren’t You Curious.  It’s sooooo soft plus I think it brings out the gray-blue color of my eyes!  LOL!  (You can’t tell in the camera phone pic from this post, but trust me!  It does!)  And the oatmeal heather Old Navy pants are inherited from my cousin, Issei.  I’m so lucky to have such a stylin’ cousin.

I’m growing pretty quickly.  Pretty soon, Mama and Papa are gonna have to get the 3-6 month clothes that are packed in storage!  I am only 7 weeks old right now, but I’m most comfortable in clothes that are for 3-month-old babies!  I think I have a good chance of being tall and handsome like my daddy.  Don’t you agree?
