Preparation for my darling Jayden's arrival!

have been buying many last minute stuff off my checklist... luckily it is more or less done already :) went to mybbstore today @ kuchai lama to check out their sales... since there were discounts on several items that i needed, we decided to shop there to continue our shopping list, in preparation for our baby's arrival! the couple that ran the shop is Andrew & Christy, yeah what a coincidence, same name, diff spelling ya.... and she is 5 mths pregnant. Very good service which makes me even more comfortable to buy things there, andrew was really patient and bothered to explain the questions that i asked... and yes i asked many qns...hehhehe he took the time to slowly explain the pros and cons, and not only push the expensive items to me... me and james really appreciated it :)

we are both so excited as there are so many new things to explore, new things to learn and new things to buy.... meaning burn a bigger hole in the pocket hehehhee.... over last few months, we have decided to only buy the necessary items, unnecessary ones such as the crib lights or fanciful things that look really cute, we have learned to resists in buying them... after all, it only lasts a few months, we have more important things to get once bb grows bigger such as baby walker, high chair for makan... eating utensils etc...! the list is forever endless....


bought this today @ mybbstore, snowbear steam steriliser, medela manual breast pump
(with free bottle), the first years grooming set, safety 1st 3pc medicine set, cooling bag with ice pack to store breastmilk when i express it at work, famidoc infrared thermometer &
the first years disposable nursing pads, 6pc wash cloths
these are some cute little shorts we have bought so far for bb....
little rompers for darling, light cotton so it wont be warm for him....

Soft crib mirror, got this from fabulousmom.com, reversible in both ways so bb can look at himself in the mirror... it is good to promote their vision and bb responds best to red, black and white! will hang it on his cot, playpen etc. :)

in further preparation, we will be taking out all the clothing, bedsheet, towels, facecloth, booties/mittens/socks to wash before bb gets to wear them, so it smells nice and it is soft and clean for him to wear! :) cant wait....

we've more or less selected a name for bb boy... Jayden Tan! Chinese name we are still in the midst of selecting with my father in law and bro in law.

Jayden, can u believe it? we have not seen u yet, but I actually miss u! :)

13 friends spoke up!:

Woww...Kristie, I am impressed!! you really bought a lot!! Is good that you have all the necesarry items ready.

Besides, I am so interested about the mirror. This is the first time I seeing this.

kristie said...

ya joanne, i've been looking around for a mirror for bb to look at himself... i really like this, got it from fabulousmom.com...

cos in the beginning bb is attracted to contrasting colours such as red, white & black.. this will help promote their visual development... love it! :)

Jayden is just sooo lucky to have a mummy like u. I didnt even buy that much thgs whn i was hving my gals.
Anyway kids nowadays are really lucky, unlike us hving empty boxes instead of expensive toys, And even clothes, i guess we were wwearing those 2nd instead :)
