~ baby playpen ~

25 January 2007

when we went to Jakarta last weekend, we picked up the playpen bought by ari’s parents. yesterday afternoon, we finally had time to assemble the pen and to see how big it actually is.

assembling the playpen

the playpen is made out of rattan, so it looks very nice. it was assembled rather easily, too. just like a regular playpen, it has two heights, the shallow pen and the deep pen. and it’s relatively easy to adjust it.

it is, however, larger than i thought. its width is slightly wider than our doorways, so, we can’t move it between rooms without taking it apart. i guess it’s okay, since it didn’t take long for us to put it together. now, we just need to find a good fluffy mattress :)

finished playpen

koda, as usual, inspects everything. she acts as if she’s the project manager… once she gets bored, she went out to the balcony and lay down there until the pen is finished… then she goes back in and start inspecting again.

gue juga ga tau tuh apa bedanya. kayaknya sama aja deh. playpen and playcrib :) yang pasti sih, kalo ternyata yang ini kegedean untuk dibawa2 di bawah, mungkin bakalan dijadiin stationary sleeping pen di atas.

Nice playpen! Ja, I can’t differentiate crib and playpen either! It looks nice, I’ve never seen the one made of rattan before! Koda looks so adorable!!! Good luck with your pregnancy, Thal!
