And Then There's More

I want to utilize this blog to thank the generous people in our lives who showered our LO with their very special gifts. Even days after the baby shower, the gifts just keep on comin'.

My colleague, May gave this soother and pack of bodysuits for the little man. These are perfect as he needs more bodysuits (I never shopped much for baby clothes kasi), and the soother matches the beddings & the crib mobile, which we also got from Mothercare.

Marky, also a friend at work, gifted our son a keepsake clay set, which I intend to get for him. This would look nice in the nursery, don't you think?

Mary, another friend at work, gave Baby D 2 sets of bodysuits good for 0-3 months & 3-6 months. These would surely come in handy, especially with the kind of weather we have these days :)

And then there's the Tuc-Tuc gift certificates from Bobby, Ditas & Yesha. I must say we were so surprised with the amount (let's just say it's really a huge amount, in our opinion), and the shop itself is known here in the UAE as a seller of utterly expensive baby & kiddie items. I wanted to maximize every penny they spent for the GCs, so I decided to use it up during their sale period. And what do you know, while doing my walking exercise at the Dubai Festival City last Friday, we saw a huge SALE sign by their door! Of course we took the opportunity to use up the vouchers, and after half an hour, we found ourselves with these by the cash register:

I still have a Burjuman GC from Louise, which we're yet to spend. It's good for one year so maybe we'll use it in the next coming months. I promise to post it here as I also told her we'll let her know what we'll end up getting for Baby D.

Again, to all our thoughtful friends who've been so sweet to our darling angel - many, many thanks from the bottom of our hearts. Your kindheartedness mean so much to us. May God bless you all!
