>Changes and Quiet Time

> I spend quiet time with Peaches, staring at her observing how she plays with her toys, how she falls asleep, how she cries (or act it out), and everything she does. Most of the time, I see a part of me and T in her. It never ceases to make me smile. Although her […]

>Peaches and her friends

> I make it a point that Peaches interacts with other people other than us, her immediate family. It’s either playhouse time with friends or mall trip with Mommy or walk around the block. Any of that makes her really happy and works for me too since she learns new things from each experience.  Here’s […]
