felt good to buy so few stuff. lol. it feels that i'm really going to be more on budget this time around. although, i did buy some stuff in amazon (i guess technically, those are babynoname's first things).. a new baby furniture that it'll be a hit or miss. i bought this Cradle swing because i like that it can swing from both left to right AND front to back.
another bulky baby furniture.. i just remember when tsug was newly born, he always slept better when he was in his carseat, my theory being he didn't like the feeling of a big open spaced crib around him. i would swaddle him but he still slept longer when he is surrounded by plush fabrics like he is still in the womb. oh well.. i'll let you know if this works hehe.
you can also use it as a sorta bouncer.
you can only use this for 3 months.. before he learns how to roll over.. but personally, whatever gives me more sleep in those first few months, is worth every penny.
tsug still has a LOT of other baby furniture.. he has another swing that just swings front and back, his jumperoo (both of which i did like.. the jumperoo especially because when we were in singapore, it was so helpful that i can leave him so i can pee or cook a quick meal with him entertained and safe).. he still has a portable playpen, a bassinet crib.. his strollerSSSS (lol) and infant carseat. MY God. ang dami talaga. we really did go insane buying tsug's stuff.. excited eh! lol. you know tsug has 2 high chairs? one's in sg, another is here in antipolo. anyway, i plan on reusing all of tsug's stuff as much as possible.. para naman masulit and to justify ourselves from buying too much junk lol.
speaking of tsug, his teacher asked me to make a simple short story of his 'Adventures in Singapore'.. they will be making a book and i just need to provide pictures and the story line. first i was just thinking of a straight forward story like 'This is the merlion, this is the esplanade, etc etc.' but Pangs had a brilliant idea that i make it a fictional story.
syempre natapos ko na.. here it is:
GAVIN'S ADVENTURES IN SINGAPORE
Hi! My name is Gavin. I'm always in search of a new adventure, but when I went to Singapore to find a hidden treasure, my friends were captured by a monstrous creature called the Merlion. It is now up to me, to find and rescue my friends!
I raced through the streets of Singapore...
I climbed a jagged mountain and searched high and low..
I went down in slippery slopes...
I swam through dangerous waters and turbulent weather...
I trekked in the jungle and encountered exotic animals...
I rode a flying dinosaur and soared through the skies...
I asked colorful and extraordinary creatures, but they were of no help..
“Where in Singapore can my friends be?” I asked myself. I looked up and saw the tallest ferris wheel I have ever seen. I went up the ferris wheel and searched the great view below.
“There! I see the Merlion!” I shouted. “It's time to rescue my friends!”
My friends were very happy to escape the clutches of the monstrous creature called the Merlion. They showed me the treasure they have found and it was a big, yummy cake!
We all filled our tummies with the delicious cake. We were happy and ready for our next adventure!
