Baby Alive

It was early this year when our daughter Aby saw the Baby Alive advert on TV. She was all excited. She searched for details about Baby Alive in the internet and showed them to us, so much so that I become ‘extra’ excited than anyone else and thought that it would be much fun to have one. Hubby agreed, with one condition – that the girls should get good grades in school.

Promises are not meant to be broken, so when both our girls got their result, hubby surprised them with 2 babies.

What is so special about these babies?

Abyana’s baby

This doll laughs and talks, has realistic facial expressions and eye movements. She can even “eats” and “poops” just like a real baby. When she is “hungry” just mix up some of her special doll food. She really eats and tells us how she likes it with phrases like, “Mmm…good!” She’ll even tell us it’s time to change her diaper and says, “Uh-oh, I made a stinky!” When the doll is tired, she gets drowsy and falls asleep. The doll can also say “ I love you mummy”.

Aleeya’s Wets and wiggles baby

This doll “drinks” her juice and “wets” her diaper just like a real baby. After we give baby Wets & Wiggles doll a bottle of water, she will wiggle and cry to let us know it’s time to change her diaper. But when changing her diaper, watch out – it can be full of surprises! Once she’s changed, just squeeze her baby bracelet to hear her coo and play!

Both Aby and Aly love their baby dolls. "This doll is great", they always say, but I told them nothing compares to this baby doll ........

This baby can do all of the things that their baby alive can do and so much more, ..
This baby is our pride and joy …
And this baby is going to be 1 year old on the 28th. July
Our baby doll, our lovely princess – Aryssa Elisyia.

Is like an attestation
Of a heavenly stage
Gracing the clouds and sky,
Slowly descending into infinity
In an ongoing performance
Of darkness—

Spiderman, Spiderman,
Does whatever a spider can
Spins a web, any size,
Catches thieves just like flies
Look Out!
Here comes the Spiderman.

My new found friend Rozzlea told me that her son Zachary loves Spiderman
... and so decided that a Spiderman cake will be great for his birthday.

Happy 2nd. birthday dear Zachary, look what I've made specially for you

Spider-Man, Spider-Man, friendly neighborhood Spider-Man!
