Gift for Isabella

Baby Isabella simply gets cuter by the day! Every weekend when I visit her, she appears to have grown a little taller and wider. Not that I mind cause it’s much easier to hold her now that she’s bigger and fits in my arms better. It’s also more fun to pinch the cheeks and poke the tummy of a chubby baby!

Last weekend, I found out that she’s leaving for England earlier than what was initially planned. I’m left with approximately 2 months to soak up all her baby cuteness before she leaves us behind. Although I’m happy that she’s given the opportunity to enjoy and experience life in a foreign country, I can’t help wishing she’d stay here for at least another year before leaving us with only pictures and memories to tide us over until she eventually comes home.

Everyone in my family is planning to get her farewell gifts that she can bring along with her to England and I’m no exception. I’d like to get her something special to remember her favorite aunt by. B suggested we get her a Toddler Coddler, which is a headrest travel pillow specially designed for children. The Toddler Coddler provides excellent head, neck and lateral support while the child is sleeping in their car seat, booster seat or even stroller. It prevents the child from slumping in their seat, allowing them to enjoy a more comfy slumber. Furthermore, it also comes with an adjustable harness to accommodate children of all sizes and heights.

I think the Toddler Coddler is a wonderful idea indeed and though it is recommended for children ages 12 months and up, Isabella can still bring it with her to use when she gets older. So for now, I’m going to include this item on my list of possible farewell gifts for my little bundle of sunshine. If you have any other gift ideas for me, do voice out your thoughts here. I’ll check them out later after I catch up on some sleep. Till then, have a great Wednesday and enjoy these recent pictures of my adorable niece! :)

Hug me!

Aww...sleeping with a bar of chocolate huh? When she grows up, we shall give her tons of Reese's chocolates. But maybe she can find lots of those in England. Hehe!

A very interesting idea u have for her farewell gift. Toddler Coddler sounds great! But u have to wait til she turns 1 year old lah to use it. But we're sure she will remember u every time she sits on it! =)

Cute Little Gal/Doll!

I'm also going to miss her as u won't be able to post new pics as & when isabella grows up. it is some wht a different experience to take children in our hands & to play with them.
i love children a lot & i try to spend most of my time with the children......

she is a really cute child....
hope she has a gr8 time & future at UK than in Malaysia.
Let God Bless this Cute child with good health,fortune & progress.

She will surely be a centre of attraction for her parents & will be an inspiration for her parents & all u ppl around her.

regarding the farewell present, i would suggest you ppl busy some gold or diamond which will be on the child for ever for atleast 10 yrs.....

or the second best thing u can do is to buy some life insurance or some such gifts tht will enable the child to get good funds when she attains the age of 18 & it will be of use for her future education.
this is wht i thought.

any ways, i will be missing her... & u too. why don't u post a snap with u taking Isabella on your hands.

Regards & Best Wishes,
