Stuff for Baby Pt. 3

It's been a long time since I've posted stuff that we bought for baby... doesn't mean that we've stopped buying stuff for her though. :P

Here's a couple of stuff we bought during the Mom & Baby Expo @ SPICE Dec 5-7. 

1) Bumbo Floor Seat

Bought this at RM165 upon recommendation from my colleague. We can use this chair while feeding her solid food starting from next month. 

I actually didn't do any research before buying this chair. When blogging about it I did a Google-search online and found that there's some recalls on this product and some experts are advising against seating baby in this chair. My mom and mil also raised some concerns about baby's backbone if sitting for extended periods in this chair.

So I think I'm just gonna use it during feeding time for a short while only, and let her try to sit on her own using her muscles. Since we have no infant chair yet, and better to dirty the chair than dirty the sofa.

2) Seebaby Stroller and Pad

Bought this lightweight, cheap stroller as a 2nd stroller. We're traveling to Singapore after Christmas and we're hating to lug the heavy Graco stroller over there! So we bought this. Love it!

Am also loving this bright yellow outfit on her! She is really suitable to wear bright-colored clothes (unlike poor mommy!) haha! Shoes are a gift from grandaunt Cynthia.

Brought her to church wearing this, she's our golden baby. *grins broadly* She was a good baby and slept throughout the service, only waking to ask for milk after mommy received the Holy Communion. :-)

The Snowbowl Snowman

#throwback #6yearsago #christmasinusa

Why so many throwback posts lately? Haha... this one is because one of my friends started a phototagging challenge on FB to upload B&W photos for five days. As I was looking through my old USA photos I came across these memories..

Week 5 (Dec 21st, Sunday)
Arizona Snowbowl

We had just finished skiing at Snowbowl, Flagstaff, Arizona and were traveling home when we passed by this quaint little bistro all decked up with Christmas lights. It was one of our first few times to see snow so we were pretty pumped up by it.

Broke off an icicle (ooh! never seen one of those before!!) from one of the tree branches and started playing with it... having "fights", "stabbing" through the heart with the icicle and playing unicorn with it.

 Also saw our first snowman...

Frosty the Snowman, is a fairytale, they say.
He was made of snow, but the children know he came to life one day.
There must have been some magic in that old silk hat they found,
For when they placed it on his head, he began to dance around! 

Frosty the Snowman, knew the sun was hot that day,
so he said, "Let's run, and we'll have some fun now, before I melt away." 
Down to the village, with a broomstick in his hand,
Running here and there, all around the square,
sayin', "Catch me if you can." 

He led them down the streets of town, right to the traffic cop; 
and only paused a moment, when he heard him holler, "Stop!" 
For Frosty, the Snowman, had to hurry on his way,
But he waved goodbye, sayin' "Don't cry, I'll be back again some day." 

Thank God for Christmas songs... I kinda run out of nursery rhymes to sing so luckily the season is here so I can sing those merry Christmas songs to my daughter! *^^* Though "Frosty The Snowman" always sounds a tad sad to me, because in reality he's melting away... :P

Well, that was a small memoir of what we did after skiing in Snowbowl, though the skiing part is a story for another day...!
