I finally bought some baby stuff.

I hit Babies 'R Us yesterday, mostly to look at car seats. I got a couple of long-sleeved Motherhood t's for 9.99 each, and an adorable dress for Susie that was on clearance for 6.99. I decided to look at another baby superstore nearby - Buy Buy Baby (I'm not sure if they are all over the country or not.) They had Hotslings on sale, and I just had to get one. And these cool little diaper/wipes/changing pad carryall thingy which I've wanted since Maggie was a baby. It always seemed worthless to carry around a diaper bag with umpteen pockets for bottles if the baby is nursing. So, this will be just perfect, especially for short trips.

Then I got home, and surfed Sybermoms for sling recommendations, wanting to see if people liked their Hotslings or not. And I saw the Peanut Shells that Scout recommended and had to get one of those, too. Click here to enlarge

Ohh, I'm definitely getting a peanut shell. Those look SO much easier than that confounded ring thingy. Click here to enlarge

I also plan on hitting BRU... you got some good deals there! Click here to enlarge

I've bought a couple of girly sleepers but other than that all I need is a carseat which I'm buying this weekend. That is assuming my mil goes as out of control with the clothes as she's been threatening.

Oh, and I didn't end up getting a carseat afterall. Both stores had at least one for $89.99 and I have a 20% off coupon good at either store (they both take competitor's coupons.) I just wish they had one for $79.99. Our old infant seat is too old now to be safe for use so we really do need a new one.

Lips, the Babies R Us big baby sale should be starting up here in the next few weeks, I'd wait until then to buy the seat if you can.

I've got more than an ample supply of diapers(go look at my pictures in the review forum if you need proof) I have an entire Rubbermaid container full of sleepers and outfits(my sister just went and bought a bunch on Friday for the baby) and a big box full of misc. baby stuff I wanted/needed. All I really need is the infant insert for the Radian, and a pack n play. Ordering the insert next month, and I'm hopefully going to be picking the pack n play up from Strange next month.

I'm glad you had fun! Click here to enlarge I think I was about as far along as you before I even considered buying anything. And then I obsessed the whole time about how scary it was. Click here to enlarge

You'll love your Hotsling, especially at first. Mine was a lifesaver for Christmas shopping and even for Thanksgiving dinner. I put dd in it and she just passed out cold every time. Click here to enlarge

What is a peanut shell? I just looked at Callie's link to see what a hotsling is. Do they work well? Is it easy to put on and off? I don't know all these baby gadgets. Click here to enlarge

Callie I would be interested but I don't know if it is boy or girl.

I have almost nothing. I had a coupon a few weeks ago and I bought a changing pad. That's all I have and it's still in the back of the car Click here to enlarge.

It's not a feeling, it's a knowing.

I'll buck the trend, I don't think her kids are all that in the cute department. not all kids are cute. they have other attributes that make up for that, but look at tweedle's aiden, that is a cute kid. and your kids mel, those are adorable kids. Her's are average. I wouldn't take a second look passing her on the street.

I'm going to have that same problem. I don't think I'll be mentioning it to DH for awhile, though. Especially until we get our new car, which we have to get for me since I've got no more seats left for children!

Yeah, we've bought nothing Click here to enlarge By this time with #1, we had everything Click here to enlarge.

A couple that took our crib at a garage sale (cuz, you know, we were done Click here to enlarge) gave it back. I told her we had no plans in using one, but then she told me that if she gave it back to us, she would then have a reason to buy the one she always wanted, so we have the crib. They also have our infant carseat that we had with DS and are pretty sure that their DD will be our of it by May (she was born in early Dec) so we will have that back. They ALSO gave us their single stroller Click here to enlarge.

So, as for all the big stuff, we're set. It's just the clothes and diapers we're lacking Click here to enlarge. Oh, my nice friend is also going to purchase the diapers for us (she's great at finding the deals). Obviously we are reimbursing her.

Do you think she'll also go into labor for me so I don't have toClick here to enlarge

Smooth, I never thought I'd be big into baby wearing either, but #2 just would not sleep unless he was laying on my chest for a good 6-8 weeks, so he basically lived in the baby Bjorn. It was then I realized just how nice having a carrier could be.

That peanut shell thing looks uncomfortable Click here to enlarge

I think I'm going to splurge on a hotsling, tho. It's about all I can think of that I'll need. Baby has its choice of three cribs Click here to enlarge and either pink or blue Amy Coe bedding.
