On the hunt for a good stroller.....

 Our stroller that I got from Khols only last a few month, it's a First Year brand that ironically barely makes it to 3 months. Please don't make the same mistake i made stay away from the First Year strollers. When i am on the street the stroller has a mind of its own; it would stop suddenly, the breaks from the front wheels lock on their own, the strap was way to short for Ayden when he has on a coat. It was always a fight with the stroller.

2 weeks ago i started doing research for a stroller that would be durable and last for a long time.  I was going crazy to find something in decent price range. I know it was not going to be the bugaboo, I started going to Buy buy baby to check out their strollers. I have seen so many great strollers but some of them have short handles and barely have any room in the baskets. I was leaning toward the baby jogger since i am always on the go and leaving in NY requires a great strollers that would be compatible to the subway. After days of research I finally settle for Ted and Phils stroller from Zulily. I found this great site and now i am hooked, I was so lucky to find the stroller at 50% off retail price. If you check any other retailers the strollers run from 5oo to 900 bucks, very pricey!  From you will find great bargain up 90% off.  By the way some of their offer are final sale, so make sure you really want the item before making your purchase.

Check out what they are offering everyday and it's easy to sign up.

4 months update!

So our little guy turned 4 months a few weeks ago, and I am finally have the time to do a post. I have been wrapped up in work and  with the holiday upon us time has been a bit short and that's why this post so late. Ayden is doing so well at 4 months and we are so blessed to have him in our lives. He is the joy of our lives, he is so fun to be around. I thank God everyday for blessing us with Ayden. His babysitter loves him and she takes good care of him too, we are lucky to have her.

I put up a small Christmas tree for him and we have yet to take family photo or meet Santa. I really hope to do it soon, but it's just a timing issue with work. It's getting so busy since we are reaching the end of the quarter but I have to make time for my family too, after all  it's just a job.

Here is an update on the little guy since turning 4 months:
  • he is a supported sitter now, and can sit on his own briefly
  • not so solid food was introduced to him and he loves his food, he has eaten sweet potato, carrots and rice cereal. So far so good with the food. 
  • He is still on breastmilk and all his other food are mixed with the milk.
  • he giggles a lot louder now, everyday he makes a different sounds ( we just love how he babbles on and on)
  • He continues to sleep long hours like 8-9 hours through the night. We are so blessed for not waking up so much at night.
  • he is only getting breast milk
He drools non stop these days.
  •  he wears 6,9,12 months clothes in size, it also depends in the brands.
  • he is very curious, he likes to grab, and hold on tight to his toys, he has a teeter to keep him busy with his gum.
  • he is a happy baby who rarely cries (so thankful for that)
  • hearing his laugh is so joyful
  • he does not take the pacifier but he sucks on his thumb daily
  • he is big fan of being on the floor, he does his tummy time from there. He can turn from his stomach to his back, he is able to pull himself up when laying down.
  • he can create bubbles in his mouth, wetting his clothes all the time
  • he is very engaging, he responds to his name, he loves when we read to him
  • he starts to mimicking sounds that we make
  • he can put his feet in his mouth, he is able to grab his thighs and to pull his socks off now.
  • During his doctor visit everything went well: he is at 16lbs, he is on time with the shots, and his platelets are going up. Thank you Lord for that! 
  • His pediatrician is happy with his progress. He has to go to see the hematology every 3 months for regular check up.
I can't believe how big he is getting now. he was less than a month old in the pictures in the white. the other pictures are when he is 4 months old. Wow! so much has changed
Another picture mom, come on!
