Last Weekend: A Picture-Happy Post

September 21, 2010

Twas a busy busy weekend for Basti last weekend, hence, a busy busy day for me. Though the weekend was chocful of mommy sales, I chose to steer clear as The Painter has promised to let me get the diaper bag I wanted and shop for a new stroller (one that Basti might like better). Though I’m quite happy wearing Basti, it would be nice to be able to put him down when I eat or go to the bathroom.

Our first stop for the weekend was Deovir and consequently, Caveman & Yeti for a taste of their mango concoction. I had it with nata de coco and it was delish.

Caveman & Yeti, you make SM North Edsa bearable

Dazzle says though, that for every order of the Strawberry Heart ice, a portion of the proceeds go to the Got Heart Foundation. I’ll order that more often from now on (it’s my favorite so far, anyway).

Then it was the Saturday playgroup at baby Thomas’ place along with the other babies from our birthing class.

Thomas had all sorts of baby gear that Basti loved, like this playgym,

and the Bumbo chair.

Now, before you guys scream, “Recall!!!!” on me, I researched on why the Bumbo was recalled in the first place. Turns out the injuries sustained by babies on the Bumbo came from parents leaving their child unattended, sometimes on top of places like tables, kitchen countertops, washing machines, etc. Now Bumbo has to put a warning sticker saying it should not be used on unsafe surfaces. HELLO. Some people just shouldn’t be parents, really. The Painter wants to get one.

We went to my mother’s house afterwards and I snuck out while Basti was sleeping to do this:

And it’s done.

We spent Sunday at Lexi’s 7th birthday.

Basti looks so cute, but so not having fun. Why so sungit, anak?

Basti’s Ninang Gel, the super-baker behind Swell Sweets, made the cake.

Ninang Gel also made my wedding cake, and Basti’s baptism cake.

And, to top it off, she’s gorgyuzzz. All my friends are so pretty.

Not with any bias, you guys should check out her website. She has this awesome flowerpot cake, and the cake she made for Judy Ann’s baby shower was breathtaking!!

So how was your weekend?

    Love the hair, Eli! So chic! šŸ˜› Oh, and that Bumbo chair looks great, where can we get one of those? Are they available in local baby shops?

      Thanks Yanna!

      Yes the Bumbo is available at Rustan’s, and my friend bought hers at SM. I’m having second thoughts though. It’s expensive pala for something the baby will use for just a short while!
