Baby Registry

Most of the essential shifting and makeover is done. Planning baby space is much more tedious coz it involves of lots of consideration. First I am combining my.bedroom + Turkey.nursery. Secondly, to adapt to baby’s fast growth, I foresee that the new organization have to be flexible and practical… Third, I believe in living with less and only with the necessary. Aside from practicality and functionality, I wouldn’t mind fork out a little more for quality. As much I care for Turkey’s comfort and safety, it’s also about making the lives’ of the carers easier (my mum and myself).

Not to forget the theme and color that has to be gender neutral. Turkey’s gender is still a mystery. If I have #2, these BB items can still be re-use. So there will be more cute animals rather than flowers or cars. More biege and (mint) green rather than pink or blue.

The next big item is baby/toddler cot. Hope to get it up 2-3 weeks before I’m due.  Probably earlier since EDD is never accurate….

As for now, I’m left with organizing and preparing Turkey’s props =D
