HELLO KITTY WATERMELON
This blog is dedicated to our Daughter Emerald Elaine Diaz who is now the BIG TWO YEARS OLD!
Mommy & Daddy could not be anymore proud of the young lady you have become so far. Thank you for being so kind, loving and wise. You are truly a blessing and always keeping us on our toes.
WE LOVE YOU so much daughter!
Have you ever heard of a Sanrio club? My cousin and I actually created one growing up with us two being the only members. We would put a little bit of cash each week into a pot and once enough money was saved, we would purchase a souvenir from the Sanrio store and raffle off who gets the grand prize out of the two. Sounds fairly simple, but it made our world.
Now that I am older and the Sanrio store has vanished from our local mall, my sister Brittany introduced Emerald to Hello Kitty starting off with a car seat and stroller duo. Now nearing two years old, Emerald loves that kitty from London. She has pajamas, stuffed animals and books of Hello Kitty. As I pondered what to do for her upcoming second birthday themed shoot, I thought about mixing two of her favorite things; Hello Kitty and Watermelon. This girl LOVES her some watermelon. She will scream for a bite, eat a whole bowl and even compete with her dad with who can eat it faster. I brainstormed some ideas online and thought to create a unique and fun filled theme! I introduce to you Kawaii, HELLO KITTY WATERMELON!
Hello Kitty also known as Kitty White, is a fictional character produced by the Japanese company Sanrio, created by Yuko Shimizu and currently designed by Yuko Yamaguchi. Hello Kitty and her twin sister were born on November 1st. They are both 3rd-grade students who live in the suburbs of London. She is as tall as five apples, and as heavy as three. She lives with her parents and her twin sister Mimmy who is her best friend. Her hobbies include baking cookies, playing the piano and making new friends. As she always says, "you can never have too many friends!" She is known by her big red bow near her right ear, her distinctive whiskers and notably, no mouth.
