Hair Clips

Don't I look cute and girly in my hair clips? I had them on only for a few minutes though... Just enough for Mommy to take a few snaps. You all know how I dislike anything on my hair or head! Sunglasses, hats, hair clips, even combs!

Maybe when I'm bigger, I would allow Mommy to do my hair. But for now, no messing with my hair yet, please!

A Day At My Pedia

This was taken at the waiting room of my Pedia's clinic. Mommy and Daddy brought me in for my immunization. I was playing while we were waiting for my Daddy. My ever forgetful Mommy forgot to bring with us my blue book, which records all my immunizations and medical check-ups.

I had two shots that day. One for Hepatitis and the other for Polio. The next one will be on September 15th. It was pretty quick and I was surprised that I only cried after all the shots were given. And I cried only for a while. I can easily be consoled with words, unlike some children who take some time before they calm down. I didn't get any rashes nor had any fever too! I guess my parents are lucky because of that. Hehe!

Photoshoot Outside The Church

Last Sunday, after mass, I had lots of fun sitting on the steps outside the church. I was wearing my dress and enjoyed posing for my Mommy and our friends. We all had a good laugh! Hihihi!

This baby blogger is now a toddler!
I have grown so much, haven't I?

The many faces of me: raised eyebrows, waving goodbyes,
smirking and pouting my lips.

A Reminder of A Grim Past

Behind me is one of the former guard towers guarding the concentration camp. Prisoners attempting to escape were executed in more ways than one.

Our vacation last July took us to many places. One of which is Germany's Dachau Memorial Site which used to be a concentration camp during the Third Reich period. It is a place of memory, of pilgrimage, and of education. The visit was quite a challenge, especially for my Daddy, but it was overall a deeply moving and memorable experience for my parents. I was too young to understand all about it though. Anyway, here are some of our photos:

Mommy's Little Helper

I know I have been remiss in my blog updates lately. Why, you may ask? That's because I am soo busy helping my Mommy out!

See? Ain't I such an angel?

Mommy thought it was cute because I was trying to help her in the "cleaning". But I wonder why she takes out the vacuum cleaner and follows after me... Is it because I am making the floor messier and scatter back the small debris on the floor all over again?

The Landshuter Hochzeit

This little one is all set and good to go for another day of fun!

This little baby was lucky to have witnessed the Landshuter Hochzeit in Landshut, Bavaria, a re-enactment of the wedding feast that took place there in 1475. Why lucky? Because it only takes place every 4th summer, the last one being in 2005.

The little children with their nannies.

Margarethe widow of the Prince-Elector of Saxony (in a coach)

Dominican and other monks of the German monastic orders.

The bridegroom’s father, and wedding host carried in a sedan chair.

It was quite a lavish procession, participated in by almost 2,000 people of different ages, and lasted for more than an hour. Because it was a re-enactment, the participants were garbed in their Medieval clothes. It was indeed a mix of colors, and there were lots of fine horses too!

Mounted women Aristocrats from Poland.

These horses were HUGE!!!!

Look at all those fine horses!

Young girls in their colorful Medieval costumes.

One of the many pages bearing a torch. The bride was inside the gold coach.

This couple were talking about me. They thought I'm cute! Hihi!

Shouts of "HALLO!" can be heard from the participants, in which the spectators also respond "HALLO!". There was live medieval music played by the marching bands. It was indeed a very festive celebration, as if we journeyed back in time in the year 1475.

And where were we the entire time? Sitting on the side of the street, drinking, errrrr taking it ALL in!

Having Fun at the Parking Area

This little one enjoyed a lot during our drive going to Venice, Italy. Why? Because I had a blast playing at the playground during one of our pit stops. The scenery was very beautiful too! And the air was fresh and clean! Take a peek and see how much I enjoyed it!

Germany's Next Top Model?

It is getting warmer here by the day and what better way to stay cool then soak in water? But before I could go waddling and splashing in the pool, I must have my own swimwear first. I actually have two, given to me by my godmothers but the yellow one is still too big for me. The green two-piece was just perfect though when Mommy had me try it on.

Goofing around as Mommy puts my two-piece on.

A smile for my Daddy.

Giggling as I modeled my two-piece bikini to Mommy and Daddy. They were shrieking with laughter when I pulled the string! LOL!

Ain't I such a cutie? And I wear it proudly too! Hehehe!
