Brought your Grandma out for shopping today and she saw this chic looking chair at Mothercare. Mummy was trying out clothes in the fitting room and I stepped out, Grandma said she wants to buy it for you without even checking the price tag. Its cool and looks comfy but S$269 is a little pricey for a chair right?
We started our baby shopping last weekend and just as we thought we know exactly what to buy, we were just overwhelmed when we reached the stores and saw so many variety of so many things that seem essential for us. Good thing I had a shopping list with me, else I would have over shopped more than I did!
Mummy pray and hope and wish; drank lots of water and kept pacing around before the scan, hoping to catch a glimpse of your gender today. Filled with excitement I looked into the scan monitor and all we saw was your curved spine with head pointing down and legs folded. Doctor tried but it was another failed attempt.
Wanted to start buying stuff for you but now we can’t pick pretty colors nor boy/girl indicated stuff for you. And Mummy already is half way through your first scrap album; trying my best to keep it as neutral and none gender focus as possible. You’re really giving us a challenge ah?
Measured your weight today and you’re as 1234g, measuring 23.3cm in length. Gynae said all is fine and you’re healthy. With your arrival inching closer, and you getting into position to see the world, its highly likely that we’ll be kept in suspense till your arrival!
Looks like it’ll be neutral colored clothes, accessories and necessities for you for the first 3 months.
Be good and grow well baby. We’ll try again on 20th July.
I’ve long stopped purchasing magazines from newsstand but recently, an old friend working at SPH passed me a copy of Young Parents Magazine and from there I found out that there will be very attractive free gifts when I subscribe to the magazine at the roadshow!
The kiasu woman in me already booked my hubby, my best friend and her hubby to head down to Young Parents Fiesta on either 25 or 26 June at Marina Square atrium. But when I did a little research and seeing the long queue at the subscription counter, I’m reconsidering whether we should go on the first day instead! So KS right?
For the first time, we visited a mother-baby exhibition. Was thrilled to see so many cute babies around Singapore Expo tonight. Found out about Motherhood Exhibition on Jame’s website and The Studio Loft’s promo on Facebook; so I suggested we go check it out.
Not prepared to buy any stuff for the baby yet; shopping spree will start in July. But we did got ourselves booked for two, in my opinion, very important and essential things. (1) Signed up for cord blood bank with Cordlife and (2) two photo sessions with The Studio Loft.
While we wait for the arrival of our precious one, I started working on Baby’s first scrapbook! Scrapbooking has always been a part of my life since 6 years ago, but there wasn’t any strong motivation to get scrapping for awhile. Now that we are expecting our first baby, its time I get back to this expensive, time-consuming but lovely hobby. Keeping in mind not to buy unnecessary stuff that I’ll never use.
