Happy Birthday, Papinski

September 27, 2010

Since we are the Babinski Mamas, we call our hubbies, Papinskis. And it’s my Papinski Jeff’s birthday today!

There are so many rules for husbands in the Bible and I will list my top four favorites where I can relate so much.

“If anyone does not provide for his relatives, and especially for his immediate family, he has denied the faith and is worse than an unbeliever. 1 Timothy 5:8

“Now I want you to realize that the head of every man is Christ, and the head of the woman is man, and the head of Christ is God.” 1 Cor 11:3

“Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her…” Ephesians 5:25

“Husbands, love your wives and do not be harsh with them.” Col 3:19

Jeff, thank you for being all these…

I prayed for you and God gave you to me. Happy happy birthday to the love of my life… my personal chef, driver, plumber, roommate, partner in crime…at kung anu-ano pa! God bless you more! Ten years is still too short. ♥

Topaz Mommy

September 18, 2010

Topaz Mommy and Babinski Mama met when they were in Grade 1.

80’s + Bangs = Me.

(L-R) 3rd in top row: Topaz Mommy; 6th in second row: Babinski Mama

A few weeks ago,  Topaz Mommy gave birth to the healthiest and cutest baby boy in town!

I read her Facebook status a few days after giving birth and she seemed to be getting the baby blues. I knew exactly what she’s feeling. I felt it when I gave birth to my first. That having a newborn is not at all like a Johnson’s baby commercial where everything is painfully perfect. The long nine-month wait was nothing but smoke and mirrors! I felt betrayed.

Then with my second baby, I felt it again. I wrote an entry about it in November 2007:

I’m a brand-new mom all over again and I’m lacking confidence. Even the most mundane task like going to the grocery scares me. Where do I put the older child? In the main basket? If I do that where does the food go? It’s giving me a mild panic attack. Since we’re planning to have an eyebrow-raising four children, yes you heard me, it would really depend on, one, whether we could swing it financially, and two, my mental stability.
Speaking of mental stability I had post-partum with the Bear. I found the first 48 hours after giving birth pretty easy. But then reality hit me like a truck on the third day when I had enough strength to stand up after that painful operation for breastfeeding time. Frankly, there was no halleluiah moment, no chorus in the air when all the while I thought that upon seeing your newborn there would be angels with golden trumpets singing, “Hallelujah! Hallelujah… Hallelujah…” in the background. And when the nurse handed me the small Bear all 6.8 lbs. and led me to the breastfeeding room, a group of mothers were already there feeding their babies. I scanned the room wishing I had the corner area instead because I was struggling to do the cradle position with the small Maxiebear in my arms and didn’t want to make it too obvious, terrified that I might break her little bones. I wanted to cry. What have I gotten into? On the fourth day when bff Iya visited me in the house, I remember telling her, “Is this all there is to motherhood? Where has my life gone?” …To think I’ve only been a mother for 96 hours. But then you see, having our very first newborn became a milestone that fills me with great joy and once again makes me believe that, yes, there is a light at the end of the newborn tunnel.

HALLELUJAH!

Glad you enjoyed the gifts Mommy… He’s a real Babinski Baby! You’ve been blessed with so much.

Paisleys and Cats

September 16, 2010

The Painter’s Wife wrote a really nice feedback on her blog about our Receiving Blankets and Versavest Nursing Covers. Happiness!

We trust Babinski Mama Aimee for her super-eye when it comes to choosing fabrics for the nursing covers. As soon as she spots a design, it’s THE one. Here are the five new fabrics that we gathered for the Versavests. This week will be Paisleys and Cats…

Paisley - Pink

Paisley - Teal

These two have delicate designs in sheer fabric. It’s very soft and “flowy”. I really don’t know how to take a picture of these showing the translucent parts of the cloth. So behind it is a giant corrugated cardboard, a little bit near skin-color, to show its sheer-ness.

Paisley - Navy Blue

The Navy Blue has no sheer part. It is cottony soft. More for those who don’t like colors much. There are days that I don’t like colors, too. Remember, the rule less-is-more never goes wrong…

Cat - Baby Pink

Okay, so who wouldn’t die for a baby pink and gray leopard print? Even if I’m not breast feeding I still got one for myself. I match it with white, and looks good with denims, too! I love tying both ends on a knot. (Aimee taught me that.)

For a little trivia, the reason why we name our nursing covers, Versavest, is because of it’s versatility, how it is used as a breastfeeding cover and at the same time as a fashion piece. So it can still be functional whether you are not a mama milking cow anymore. 🙂

Cat -Silver

For me, when it comes to the design, this one is the most versatile of all, you can go casual or semi-formal with this gray on silver-gray cat print. Of course, the real breastfeeding mama Charlene couldn’t resist to get one.

There are two ways to wear our Versavest Nursing Cover. First is by wearing it the usual vest way then use one flap of the vest to cover you while baby is feeding. The flaps are wide enough. The second one is by wearing it in front, just like an apron. This is the traditional nursing cover way where the baby is under the cloth, totally covered. Since the vest is wide enough, plus the fabrics we use are light and soft, there is ventilation for baby. 🙂

It’s Springtime at BB!

September is in!

We’ve been getting emails, messages and calls for Babinski Baby to come out with our Blooms Collection again. While checking our archives, it was in September of 2009 that we released the designs out in the market…

Here are some…

Now we’re bringing it back! Currently made two proto samples, one in white and one in light gray.

The bloom is softer and more “ruffled” now and sleeves are still puffed 🙂

Now my main concern is… why is the grass in the garden greener, shiny and luscious this year than it was last year, just when it is not regimented enough? Hmmm… (Haha!)

Love you all. And Happy Birthday Blooms! Glad you still give us colors…
