These are some of the toys that Maxine plays with...or, at this stage, stares, gawks or slaps at. The flying swallow mobile totally captivates Maxine. She'll stare at it forever, even when she's crying. Black and white really works on new babies! BTW, after doing research on the best(-looking) and most space-efficient sleep set-up for a baby in an apartment with limited expansion capability, we decided not to get a free-standing bassinet (bc the only one that my snobby designer side liked was $500) and instead decided to put the bassinet money towards a Bugaboo stroller and use the stroller's bassinet as Maxine's early-stage bed. The Bugaboo is kind of embarrassing to push around because it's the equivalent of driving a fancy bells-and-whistles SUV. (H2?) also, in our very diverse neighborhood--even though it's obvious we are newcomers--it totally screams 'yuppie invasion! we are gentrifying like maniacs and there is nothing you can do to stop us!' literally, just about everyone of us newcomers has the same stroller. anyhow, in the end, Maxine most prefers to sleep on the $20 vinyl diaper change pad that you see above. She 2nd-most prefers this cheap-o inclined foam co-sleeper we got after we discovered she hated the Bugaboo bassinet. Moral of the story: start cheap and work your way up if you need to.
Suntone Toy Camera
I got this camera about 15 years ago when it came in the mail as a “free gift” to my mom. She, having no need of it, asked me if I wanted it before she tossed it. Back then, I could not see any use for such a, uh,…cheap toy threw it in a box of stuff which has just surfaced lately as I am getting ready to move. Eureka! It takes real toy camera pix!!! I will post a few (as well as the ones from the Holga due to arrive tomorrow) as a fun and retro looking set. I love this kind of stuff, but it took me evolving into digital to truly enjoy that which has been around for years. Back when I considered these useless, I was an SLR (and a few select rangefinder) snob, but no more! HAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!
