Mommy of the Week: Mye Lacdao

Mye Lacdao, mother of Dianella-Xyrah Lacdao Casupanan or “Dindin” (1 year and 9 months old)

She is an unexpected miracle. My life was never the same ever since she came into my life. Everyday is a new experience for me—tripping over toys, getting puked on, pooped on, peed on, and chewed on. I will never forget the time she was screaming and crying so hard and I have to hold her down so that the doctor can give her shots. My heart felt like it broke into a million pieces, when I couldn't stop her hurt. Looking into her teary eyes is enough to make me cry as well. With this, I stay up late during the wee hours of the night just to watch her sleep, or just hold her in my arms (even though she is already asleep), because I just want to be with her. 

I also never thought attending kiddie birthday parties would be so much fun! I especially love to plan on what she would wear. Right now, she already loves to dress up, and one of our bonding moments is to play dressing up. She would always open her cabinet and ask for the dress that she wants to wear, even though there is no occasion. I never knew that someone so small could affect my life so much and that I could love someone so much. I so love being her mommy.

Whenever we attend birthday parties, special occasions, or just simply going out to the mall and playing dressing up, I always complete her ensemble with Zuri Baby Couture accessories. I love matching the accessories with her #OOTD. And more often than not, she would always get complimented whenever she is wearing Zuri Baby Couture accessories.

I discovered Zuri Baby Couture accessories through Facebook. A friend showed me a picture of one of your booties, and I fell in love with it at first sight. I immediately searched for the link and the rest is history.

Mommy of the Week: Lee Artemis Villavert

Lee Artemis Villavert, mother of Cionne Angela Vladmina or “Leela” (1 year and 2 months old)

My most unforgettable experience with my little darling would have to be our very first bonding moment in the privacy of the hospital's breastfeeding room. She was three days old then. You see, she had to be kept in the Neonatal ICU for 10 days due to low body temperature, low blood sugar level, a high white blood cell count, and she developed jaundice, too. I, on the other hand, had to undergo blood transfusion a day after she was born, because my hemoglobin level dropped really low. 

To finally be able to see her again, to cuddle with her very close, and breastfeed her in the cozy silence of that little room was such a special and emotional experience, where only I, a first-time mom, and my newborn could share. There were no photos captured during that heart-melting moment, but it will forever be treasured in my memory. In time, my dearest Leela will know of it, and of the myriad of feelings that poured out of that very special moment that only I could understand.


If I were to count every moment that Zuri Baby Couture became a part of, it's sure to be plenty, because every time I put those stylish booties on my baby's tiny feet and the matching headbands to beautify her crowning glory, I am confident that she is at her prettiest and most picture-perfect appearance, and those make the best moments!

One occasion was her Christening day, when she wore the stunning Red Glamour Baby booties set in her post-Baptismal ceremony dinner. The vivid red booties and matching flower on the headband really stood out, and they looked perfect with her simple red tube top and cream-colored tulle skirt. She got a lot of compliments for her entire get-up. She must have felt how lovely and lady-like she looked that day. She was so behave all the time. Her daddy and I were so proud of her!


One of my sisters sent me a private message on Facebook, telling me about this online store that sells really awesome accessories for babies. She knew all along that I have been wanting her niece to own a pair of stylish yet comfy baby boots. She provided me the link to that online store, and I'm ever so thankful that she did. I clicked on the link, loved what I saw, and, voila! The rest is history.
