First trip to Babies R Us
For the past few days Megha was not enjoying her playmat. Of course she doesnt; she has been playing with the same thing for the past 3 months now. Since 2 days whenever I keep her down there she wants me to pick her up again. She clearly was asking for something new which she hasnt seen before. Below is a picture of her in the playmat; maybe a month old then.
So we decided that its about time we buy her a new activity centre. Walmart didnt have anything I wanted and so, Megha, my mom and I drove down to Babies R Us. Anand and I usually avoid going there because you just cannot stop spending money once you look at all the cute stuff there! It was snowing when we went there and thankfully not many kids were around. Below is a picture of her in the store; couldnt help but to click one...its her first time there after all.
Here is the picture of Megha playing in one of the exercise gyms. She LOVED the store. No wonder, it indeed was lovely.
She literally shouted in delight when I placed here there; so I had to get this Evenflow excerSaucer for her. It was very heavy and it took all the space in the boot of my car. Assembling that thing together was a nightmare. This is why we have to leave a few things for husband to take care of. I couldnt screw in snugly and had to call the manifacturer and order new screws. After everything the lady on the phone says that i have to screw in very tightly because there are no threads on the tray and thats why I am finding it difficult to screw in. Why couldnt she say this sooner?! She also said that they receive many calls from 'women' regarding the same problem. She clearly meant only women...not men!
Oh well. After 3 hours and 4 coffees later, Megha's ExcerSaucer was ready for her to play! Oh, did I mention, it needs 9 AAA batteries, which they conveniently didnt mention on the box. But its all completely worth it the moment I saw the look on Megha's face. She LOVED it! So, I love it :) Here is a picture after assembly, in front of our fire place. She couldnt touch her toes down, so, kept some support.
Another one :)
