Rudi’s parents bought us the most awesome play gym from Tiny Love. The exact one that we have doesn’t seem to be on the site. It’s a tropical island one (see Activity Gyms) with arches and toys and attachments. It also has a ‘tummy time’ inflatable pillow that baby will lie on and if your baby presses on the mirror it will play music. It’s SO much of coolness! Very colourful and the arches and toys can be moved around. You can also buy more toys if baby gets bored with the ones on there. Certain parts of the mat ‘crinkle’ if you touch them and there are squeaky things in there too.
Over the weekend I wanted to get a new PS2 game, seeing as how Rudi and I are both too retarded to get past level 4 on Sonic Heroes. I really wanted the Sing Star game and since Rudi still hasn’t gotten me a birthday gift he said we should go and get it. We made a few calls, one to Reggies. Even though we weren’t able to find a Sing Star game with microphones, I enquired about the car seat we still need for Babyice. Turns out they had stock! I asked them to call me when they got in, which they obviously didn’t. Immediately we (well, I) waddled (Rudi just walked normally) off to the mall and finally bought our car seat for Babyice. It’s the last ‘essential’ large purchase that needed to be made. We could probably get by on what we have now, although I’m pretty sure there are millions of people who have to make do with less. While we were roaming around in Reggies we happened to see the play gym that was bought for us. It’s R900.00!!!! Holy crap-a-doodle! Babyice is super spoilt!!! I am uber blessed to have such generous in laws!
On Sunday I was telling Richard (who designed my blog) that we couldn’t find Sing Star anywhere…and he said ‘Uh, why don’t you look on the net?’. DUH. Why didn’t I just? I found the game WITH two microphones on Kalahari for just R340.00! I ordered Sing Star Legends which has the following songs on it:
