Getting ready for baby

Mom and her boy(s).

We’re getting ready for baby – Bi is 28 weeks so far today. We’ve all been getting ready in our own ways – buying things we’re interested in and that he’ll need (we’re expecting a boy in early September for those of you new to this whole thing).

Just got back from Singapore where I got the kind of stroller we were looking for (what I was interested in buying). Apparently, there is a trend to buy strollers approaching the size and alluminium composition of a compact car. We managed to get one designed for a baby instead and that wouldn’t require more than a month’s salary. Also, Bi and my Mom did a little international retail coordination to get the baby clothes here (pictured in their gloried cuteness below).

Jacob loves toys, of course, so he figures toys are what his brother will need pretty much from the beginning. We’ve got the crib setup (well, not a crib exactly, but a Graco ‘Pack and Play’ which is a marketing euphamism for a portable crib). Bi is doing well and is right now knitting the 130-ish row of the blanket she’s making for the baby (photo below).

Below are shots of all of this – we’ll certainly update with new additions for Baby. –  David

Baby’s first blanket – made by Mom.

The blue bunny I bought for Bi and the bib I bought for the baby. The best baby cloting item I’ve ever seen – a carefully stiched rooster on a bib. WHY?!

One of the bath toys Jacob bought for him.

Bi’s favorite onesie (at least before she bought the others).

Me – ‘Unpacking’ the ‘Pack and Play’. Doin’ the ‘Dad thang’.

Me – putting on the little animals Jacob picked out for the crib.

Jacob – trying to take attention away from the finished crib. We all love the fact that the crib is covered in camoflague (wow – that’s a really tough word to spell).

I’m not sure, but I think Bi may have purchased some baby clothes.


About David and Lam

A smitten couple and loving parents in our early 40s. We have lived in 3 different countries together. We dream of living in a fourth country together after our children grow up. We love long walks in the woods, climbing mountains, boating, traveling, reading, and being together. Both David and Lam are old souls who love quietness and meaningful conversations in which we ponder the truth and mysteries of life as well as discuss philosophical and ethical matters. We especially like to enjoy the small pleasures of daily life.
