I was just wondering what everyone has gotten set up or bought for their baby's so far? We have a travel bassinet/ playyard set up in our room with a special blanket (each child has one that we've picked out) and a few receiving blankets.. we have clothes in the garage from our 2 year old DD but haven't taken them out and cleaned them up yet.

We just painted room pink. I only have 2 boxes diapers, 1 newborn outfit, 1 pack of onesies. Its been 15 years so i am having a shower May 15th. My mom bought me a travel system (i have that put together) and we are going to be looking for crib and furniture very soon (i saw furniture i like but to find a crib that is vanilla/creamy colored is difficult!!).

Well, if you are a slacker, I am the biggest slacker of all! LOL. We do need a crib, bassinet, and a car seat, but have not gotten them yet. all I have done so far is seperate all the gender neutral clothing--I haven't even washed them yet! LOL

If you had asked me a week ago I would have said NOTHING! i have a few onesies that my MIL bought me for xmas, and nothing else. But last friday we got our crib and a bedding set *hand me down* so we don't know if we are keeping it *it's not really boy ish"

We need to get on it..LOL..i know that i am having a baby shower at work and one that my MIL is throwing for me..so maybe i should wait on buying certain things..:)

there's absolutely plenty of time so we haven't done anything in the house. we'll start re-organizing my son's closet & emptying 2 dresser drawers at the end of this month. the only thing baby-related we did was put together our new sit-n-stand stroller yesterday to make sure it was ok & we liked it (isn't on display in-store so we ordered it & had to try it at home right away).

(visiting from Aug board)

I was just giving this some thought and figured Id check out July and see if anyone has started.. I have had my hours cut back at work so I am trying to purchase small things here and there so that I dont have a whole bunch to do at the end and wont be able to pull it off. So, i have a swing from my son, bouncy chair, and just bought a new bath tub, and 2 sets of onesies and 2 packs of newborn diapers.
