Chloe's Anatomy

Finally, new updates on Chloe. I got sick for the past few days and then I got busy with my own blog, at Cookie's Corner, that I wasn't able to make a blog in here. Ok, enough explaining on that.

Chloe watched Tinkerbell last week and how she loved it! Actually, the story was very cute because even I, was entertained. So, from that day on, she's been watching it over and over again.

Tinkerbell has a mouse named Cheese. And my daughter, Chloe the Artist, made a sketch on this cute mouse. She even put a label or wrote the Mouse's parts of the body. And Chloe said that Cheese, a Baby Mouse, is a Good Mouse.

If you had a hard time reading some of her labels, here's what it is:

Ears, Eyes, Head, Body, Tail, Little toes, Little hands, Nose and Face.

In the attic is a pumpkin. On the left window is a skull and on the right is a ghost.

And my little girl just can't get enough of these adorable animals!

Chloe's Busy Weekend

Hello dear friends. Thanks for dropping by and for leaving some comments in my blog. Was a bit busy. Now, I need to sleep first. I promise to visit you all back!

Friends Are Flowers

Got this tag from Tita Amy...Thanks a lot for the friendship that you shared with my mom!

And lovely are the blossoms
That are tended with great care,
By those who work unselfishly
To make the place more fair.
And, like the garden blossoms,
Friendship's flower grows more sweet
When watched and tended carefully
By those we know and meet.
And, if the seed of friendship
Is planted deep and true
And watched with understanding,
Friendship's flower will bloom for you.

I also received another award. Actually, my mom posted this at Cookie's Corner already. But since it's the cutie Baby Samantha and pretty Tita Lizzie's first awards, my mom & I decided to post this again. Thank you so much for thinking of me ;)

I guess I will not include the rules here coz my mom passed several of these tags to her blogger friends already ;) So, to my other blogger friends, I hope you won't get mad at me if I cannot post some of your tags because my mom already posted it at her corner. But don't get me wrong, I love receiving memes/awards/tags. So, keep them coming, okay?

The Map

Chloe is so amazed with Google Earth. What she usually searches there is Cinderella's Castle in Disney World, Florida. Really, if I only had enough cash in my wallet, I would take her there :) She searches for Africa, too, because her favorite Madagascar animals escaped in there. She also loves to search for places that she's been to lately, like the Camiguin Island. Not contented with her curiosity, she would sometimes take her small globe with her and compare with what she saw on Google Earth.

She learned that we live in the Philippines, so, she viewed it and asked me so many questions. Well, this is the time where most kids ask so many Whats, Wheres, and Whys, so the best thing to do is just give them some answers.

Philippine Map

Today, without looking at Google earth and her small globe, she took up her 'Magic Board' and look what she drew -
She drew this Philippines out of memory!

Animal Stories

Chloe loves stories about animals. She was so happy to watch The Land Before Time, Ice Age, Kung Fu Panda and Madagascar. She even memorized all the characters. It was also in these films where she learned what are the different kinds of animals, what kind of species or what herd do they belong.

Today, she was so happy to see these lovable fellas again: Alex, Marty, Melman and Gloria, from the movie, Madagascar:Escape to Africa. And when we went home, she immediately looked for her 'Magic Board' and draw what she saw in the movie. Too bad, she erased it immediately before I could even take a picture of Skipper (the penguin) and the Lemur.

And now, Chloe is already looking forward to watch Ice Age 3: Dawn of the Dinosaurs. Well, she will just have to wait for about two months to watch it on the big screen again.

Chloe's Planet

I'm gonna share in here the developmental milestone of my little lady. After all, I made this blog for her ;)

I’m happy to know that Chloe is doing well at school, that is, according to her teacher. Actually, I have no problem tutoring her, which is good I think because I only have very little patience, hehe. Her memory amazes me, she easily memorizes things even if she encounters them just once. Even before entering Nursery, she knew about and could easily identify the ABC’s . At the age of 4, she knew how to count the numbers up to 100 (now, she has reached up to 200+) and can also write them in figures. She was also fascinated with the planets and solar system and at 4 ½ years old, she could memorize the planets randomly and even describe which one is the red planet, the windy planet, the hot planet, etc. She also knew the names of the moons of Neptune, Jupiter (not all though, 'coz Jupiter has so many moons) and even Pluto (which by the way is no longer considered a Planet).

She loves her Encyclopedia the most and is so amazed with the animals, especially dinosaurs (she could tell which one is a Triceratops, a T-Rex or Apatosaurus) and also anything that lived during Ice Age Era. I don’t even know what an Armadillo looks like until she drew it. Before turning 5, she could read a lot of words and could even spell them correctly. Now that she’s 5, she has memorized the months from January to December and days from Monday to Sunday. She is also reading books that are not for pre-school anymore, and even attempted to read the subtitle in the anime series that I happened to watch. I’m just so proud of her. I’m glad she’s not like her mom who can’t seem to focus on what she’s reading, hehe.
