The compass on the other hand reminds him of his favorite Disney animated movie, Pocahontas. He likes the character, John Smith on that movie. He can watch the movie over and over again and will never get tired of it!

You Are a Doer
You are primarily concerned with what is actual. You tend to be a practical person.
You love to stay busy, and you are always immersed in projects.
You are in touch with your senses, and you enjoy indulging them. You're likely a crafter of some sort.
You crave different sensations in life, whether it's working with your hands, playing sports, or eating your favorite meal.

Mother’s Day Poem For a Friend
I’m proud to have you as my friend,
A wonderful friend for me;
You’re also a great mother, too;
I watch you admiringly.
Observing you, I often think
How blessed the world is now
To have you in it, friend and mom,
Happy Mother’s Day; take a bow!

Trays: They’re not just for serving! Collect and contain items all over your home with trays of all shapes and sizes. Organize loose items on a coffee table such as remotes, magazines or catalogs and keep small items like keys and change together in an entryway or on a bedside table. You can even use a large four-sided tray for collecting wet shoes or rain boots by the door or in a mudroom.
Jars, Mugs and Glasses: Use these small containers as quick fixes for holding small items on your desk like pens, pencils, thumbtacks, rubber bands and paperclips. Or put them to use in the bathroom to hold cotton swabs, cotton balls, tweezers, make up brushes or toothbrushes.
Shoeboxes: They’re the perfect size for storing all kinds of items, from accessories and stationery, to photos and craft supplies. Stop and think before you pitch them and make them look as good as they work by covering the box and lid with wrapping paper or wallpaper to match your décor. Add labels to identify what’s inside.
Suitcases: If you don’t travel on a regular basis, don’t let all that empty space inside your suitcases go to waste! They’re perfect for storing out-of-season clothes, shoes and accessories and can often fit easily at the bottom of a closet or under the bed. If you have some nice, old leather cases you can use them as storage out in the open at the end of the bed or as a side table. They could even become a stylish way to store a collection of books or magazines.
Office Extras: Make organizing your recyclables easier by repurposing stackable trays often found in home offices.
Before you run out to the store to pick up boxes, bins or containers, look around your own home for ideas—you just may find the organization solution you need.

The theme for this week's Mommy Moment is "Doctor, Am I Sick? I don't have any pictures of Jake's visit at his doctor's clinic, so I decided to just attached a couple of pictures taken when he was born and was staying at NICU (Neonatal Intensive Care Unit), Medical City Hospital - Dallas, Texas for a month. He was a preemie baby...7 months to be exacted when he was born. As you can see, he was so tiny and was at the incubator that time.
...in here, he already gained a little weight; he didn't have any health problem whatsoever when he was born. He just need to gain weight....that's all!
My OB-GYNE, Dr. Elmquist, who is a very good doctor. She specializes on patients with very risky pregnancy like I do. With her was Mary, the nurse whom I also love because of being so nice and kind and caring to me and everybody :-)!
