First Accessories



Sarah got this lovely anklet from her gong gong and po po as a full-month's gift. I have kept it deep in my closet and Sarah never wears once. All this while I’m wondering if she’s ready as I afraid she might not get used to “something” strap on her ankle.

I think now is about time. Today I finally decided to let Sarah had a “trial session” with the anklet. She was a bit uneasy the first moment she worn the anklet. She kept pulling it, maybe she just curious. Therefore, I thought to distract her with some food and toys, it works! Gradually she’s settled down and finally she is okay with it (at least for now).

I just love to see this anklet worn around her leg; after all, this is also her first accessories. And now I will know where she is when I am busy with my house chores.

THe anklet is really good. You will be able to know where is her. And the "long long" sounds will really alert u when she flip her body at mid-night.

Xixi has been wearing her anklet since 10months old. Heheh =)

Mummy Gwen said...

Gwen definitely won't want to wear it. :( Anyway, Sarah looks very cute and girly with the anklet. I like to see litle girls wearing accessories coz they look so sweet.

Joanne, bout the teeth brushing. You should introduce to Sarah earlier before teething or as soon as the first tooth appear coz it's easier for you. Anyway, it's not too late. You can get First Years finger toothbrush and baby toothpaste from Guardian at Sunway Pyramid. The toothpaste is swallowable and comes in banana/apple flavor. Or you can go for normal toothbrush straightaway from Oral B. It has toothbrush for baby under 2 yrs old.

Wearing anklet is good & Ryan has been wearing it since he is born.

Wonderful Life said...

Nice anklet!! Hehe... now keep track on her!

My Ryan didn't wear the anklet nowadays. This is because the anklet hook is too soft and could easily came off or got hook on especially when he sleeps in the net cradle.

Now, Ryan could walk around the house and quite difficult to keep track on him without the anklet as he walks silently... not a single foot step sound! I think I got to get a new anklet for him...

Julie said...

I put on anklet for Jonathan since he is a baby. No complains from him as though the anklet never exist. I love bracelet and anklet so I myself is wearing one too. He is also not bothered with the tingling sound while asleep.

It a good way to know if they are moving around. Especially when I'm in the bathroom and I left him alone in the room, I can know if he is still "active". :P

Sarah's Daddy and Mommy said...

Julie - Is good that Jonathan never complaint about his anklet. Yalor, I think it is a good thing to keep track their movement.
- I also love accessories, especially anklet. Infact I have two anklets on my legs. One is string type and one is silver type. Without any of these, i will feel uneasy.

Doreen - Thanks! I love the anklet too..It looks very silver currently. Maybe it is still new.
- So far, Sarah only experienced once that the anklet got hook in the cradle. Since then, ok wor...
- Woww...Ryan know the technique to walk silently ya...Ermm...then is better for you to get him another "GPS thingy"...haha

Mery - Yes yes,I also noticed that Ryan has an anklet on his leg. Yeap, is definitely a good tracking things...

Mommy Gwen - Thanks for your compliment. Do you like to wear accessories?
Why Gwen dont want to wear anklet?
- Yalor, I should have got the toothbrush earlier. But everytime I have given up the plan once I failed to find a suitable one.
I have saw one finger toothbrush from guardian, I wonder is it normally sell at RM50plus?
- Ok, I think I will proceed with the toothbrush. I think is more easier for Sarah at a later stage.
Thanks mommy gwen.

Ling - So Zenden currently is not having any anklet?

Mommy MOon - Thanks for your compliment. I also like the anklet very much. Hehe...yes, I think her legs looked fat in the pics..haha
- Ya, why not give a try and let Yan Yan wear it. Maybe she will likes it.

Serene - I always hear the "long long " sound when I see the video of Xixi.
- For me, I am ok with the tigling sound at night, as I have fall asleep tightly..hehe

Esmeralda said...

Wow.. so nice ya Sarah is willing to wear the anklet. Must be very sweet leh gong gong and po po's gift.. Now everywhere she goes, u can hear long long long.. haha..

Sarah's Daddy and Mommy said...

Esmeralda - Hehe..I feel glad and lucky that she is adapting well with this new accessories on her anklet...
Yes, now I always hear the tingling sound. But I just love it.
Ashton has anklet?

Mummy Gwen said...

Joanne, Is the finger toothbrush from First Years? The toothpaste already RM20 plus. Yes, it's quite expensive but for good oral hygiene I don't mind lor..hehe..coz I've read one mummy's blog, her daughter who's 4 years old had her 2 big molars extracted cause of terrible tooth decay. So, I'm very concern bout oral hygiene for Gwen and I never give her any sweets or chocs. :P

Gwen is very fussy with dirt or ink on her skin, she would whine if she spotted it so I'm just guessing she would not like any objects dangling on her..hehe. But surprisingly she is ok when I tie up her hair. :)

Esmeralda said...

Haha... but at nite won't it be too noisy if she moves around? Hehe.. I'm not that extreme to put anklet on Ashton.. hehe...

Sarah's Daddy and Mommy said...

Esmeralda - Hehe...I am ok with the tingling sound at night, coz I have anklet too, so I have used to the noisy sound.

the little prince said...

Nice anklet!! Girl always nice with this accessories!

I have yet to give Kyle wearing this, thinking of not to cos he is very rough boy....:-p

Ping said...

Hahaha! Cute Sarah! Next time when she walk sure all the ring sound the houses.

I do let Natalie wear this type of anklet when she start to know to walk and till now she like to run here and there. So i can hear in everywhere the 'ling ling' sound and i can know her whereabout hahaha!

agnes said...

great that sarah can adapt with the anklet quite well.

I got chloe to wear it kinda early so she didn't reject it even until now. else, I dont think i can ever wear this for her coz she just hate to wear on any accessories on her body except the anklet!!! phew~~

same like doreen, chloe's anklet got trapped in her cradle net/stroller a few times. the one she is wearing was the 5th one!!!

hmmm, got a 916 gold one (fullmoon gift) as backup now.. :P

no doubt it was very useful since can locate her easily at home and it has been acting like the 'alarm' for us whenever she wakes up!!! :P

Sarah's Daddy and Mommy said...

Agnes - I also has the similar thinking. If I don't let Sarah wear the anklet now, she will sure refuse to wear it at a later age.
- Ooo..the anklet also got hooked in the stroller? hhmmm??
You meant once the anklet hooked in the cradle net, it breaks the anklet? Therefore you have to change it?
- Woww...916 gold anklet...sure nice!
- Haha....yes, it is an "alarm" for us.

Yen Ping - Natalie also got anklet? I did not notice....
Yes, now I can hear the "ling ling" sound from all her movements.

Yugene - I think Kyle will be cute too if he is wearing anklet.

Lynn said...

I always like to see baby girl with accessories... it always look so cute on them.

Andrea always likes to play with my accessories, but when i let her wear her own bracelet, she do not want it! hmph... maybe shall try anklet :)

LittleLamb said...

i think i'm so sua ku. i didnt know got such thing. i always thought ppl wear because of religion or faith.. now i know its to keep track... now i got mission to go look one. but i wonder would it be expensive? is it made of gold or silver? n heavy or not??

agnes said...

oh.. yea.. coz once got hooked & chloe was trying her REAL BEST to release herself therefore the 'S' broke adi!!! (even when she was 2 mth also can break it ok)

therefore i bought A FEW to stand by!!! hahahahaa

rachel, u can get at any silver booth at the shopping complex, pasar malam or wet mkt... cost ard RM15 - RM20 for 1 i think.. definitely not expensive and it's kinda light..

depends on how many 'long long' u want also.. some design got small long long.. some with big long long + some chinese auspicious pendant.. ;)

Esmeralda said...

haha.. i see.. no wonder you can tolerate noises at night.. if ashton were to wear it, i think both of us can't slp lor..

Sarah's Daddy and Mommy said...

Esmeralda - Maybe you are not used to the tingling sound. Hehe, if like that, then better dont wear anything on Ashton's leg..:-)

Lynn - Yes, when bb is wearing some accessories on them, they look cuter . Like Sarah, she very "oi leng" (cantonese), whenever she sit on the floor, she likes to shake her leg and let the "long long" ring...Very cute when seeing her do that.
- Andrea might be not used to the accessories on her wrist, who knows she might like anklet?

Rachel - You are not sua ku..dont worry...We always learn from each other..
- As Agnes said, you can get an anklet from any where. Is all depends on how much you would like to pay for this accessories. I think I saw at shopping centre that they do sell anklet (but I am not sure they have the bb size or not).
- Actually it is really a good tracking things for us. Now I easily know where Sarah is....

Agnes - Now I know why you have to buy so many anklet to stand by...Wow...but Chloe really powerful, at her 2 mths old she already has the strength to break the anklet hook.
- Oh ya, thanks for your detailed explaination to Rachel.

LittleLamb said...

that means i try to avoid the "s" hook type? also if silver, the color will fade and got poison bo? ie: lead?? cos philip mouth can touch his legs wor..

cos i believe your kid will use their hand, mouth to unhook the ling long right???

Sarah's Daddy and Mommy said...

Rachel - Er..I think most of the anklet will comes with the "S" hook.
Actually the one that Sarah is wearing is silver from poh kong. My mom told me it is less than RM70. But i believe it will go tarnish as time goes.
So far, I never think of the concern whether it is poison bor (when tarnish)...hehe, but I think if it is really tarnish at a point of time, I think I will change another one for her.

quEeNie said...

Nice anklet...can keep track of Sarah now..hehehe

Sarah's Daddy and Mommy said...

Queenie - Hai hai...long time no see...
- Yes, can keep track with this anklet.
