Vote for Luke at the Gap Singapore’s Casting Call

Anyone who’s read my blog since I had Luke would say that my blog is no longer Noee’s Nook but has become Luke’s Nook. 

I can’t help it! 

So here’s another Luke post.  I entered him at the Gap Singapore Casting call.  (Yes, I have stage mother tendencies).  I didn’t know until the second casting call that there was one for Singapore.  Just a few posts ago, I was saying how one of the GAP kids reminded me of Luke.

Please vote for Luke through facebook.  All you have to do is:

1.  Search GAP Singapore on Facebook
2.  Like the site.
3.  Click on the Casting call tab.
4.  Allow the application.
5.  Click on Singapore.
6.  Click on “G” and look for Luke under Guzman then vote!

Easy peasy!  Thanks!

Luke’s New Travel bag


Here’s another one of our online finds: the Okkatots bag.  The feature that got it sold for me was the outside pocket for the DVD which is something most mom’s would think is a good idea. 

DVD players are a parent’s best friend if they want to keep their kids occupied – especially during a long drive, or on a plane ride. 

I was so excited to get the package so I can find out for myself if it’s actually as good as I expected it to be.  But when I got home last Monday, the first thing Ate Lala told us was that the bag was great!  Turns out someone was more excited than I was so she already opened the package as soon as it arrived.

Ate-Lala-approved is a good start because she prepares all of Luke’s stuff and she was excited about all the pockets that are available for all of Luke’s things plus some more space for her stuff too.

Got Luke a pair of leggings


Luke needed something below the knees to wear when playing outside to protect his legs from scratches but I wanted something lighter than a pair of jogging pants. 

So I got Luke a pair of leggings that I saw at Mothercare baby girl’s section.  They’re cute.  1 is plain black and the other has a houndstooth pattern. 

No, I’m not trying to confuse his sexuality.  But it’s like buying him a pair of skinny jeans for boys…  haha that still doesn’t sound logical… consider it British fashion… or maybe rocker dude fashion. 

It’s cute on him.  He totally rocks it!

Raise IQs not Sea Levels

Been wanting to get matching Tom shoes for me and Luke since he was a little baby but I wanted to wait till he can walk and his feet won’t grow out of the shoes that fast.  Well, his feet will still outgrow those shoes in a matter of months but at least he can walk now. 

Too bad Jor didn’t have it in his size.  (Or maybe it’s a good thing or it would have been overkill.)

We got ourselves the Raise IQs not Sea Levels design – yeah, we’re cool and earth friendly at the same time. 🙂

Gap Kids

100410_tb_bleecker_ebb_US_vid I could be biased.  You know what they say about love being blind – it applies to mothers and lovers.  But to me the Asian baby boy on Gap looks kinda like Luke. 

And speaking of GAP kids, can I just say that this kid in the middle knows how to work it!  Hope he doesn’t grow up gay.  Not that I have anything against gay men it’s just that it would be a huge loss to the opposite gender if he did. 


Luke Milestone: Walking

Luke started walking 14 September 2010.  He was a little less than 14 months.  I actually thought he’d walk sooner.

He’s been able to walk for some time before that except he hasn’t had the confidence to let go.  So he had to hold on to something even if it was just the tip of my shirt.

But on the day of the 14th, he was exploring the whole house and happy to go off by himself. 

Years from now, I know I will look back to this date fondly.  It’s amazing that I got to witness his first independent steps.
