Have you ladies started buying things yet?
We've been going strong ever since we found out we're having a girl. Yesterday was another successful shopping day for Libby and I -- biggest finds were at Once Upon a Child. Picked up a really nice Chicco stroller for $60 -- would have been about $300 new. It needs a good washing (high today will be in upper 80s, so I'm thinking we'll hose it down this morning and it will be dry by early afternoon), but otherwise it's in amazing condition. Got a cute bouncy seat for $20 -- not sure this thing was ever used, it looks so good. Also, a lot more clothes. I really need to stop buying clothes. Hubby is good with it though -- just wants me to be happy. LOL!
Also picked up a mattress pad and a sheet... I found the quilt I want on Pottery Barn Kids, but it's on back order until the end of May so I may find something else. I don't recall being so picky with the first 3 on bedding, but apparently I'm really picky this time. Maybe because she's our last?
Libby picked out the diaper bag, so now we've just got a few more things to get. I'll order the carseat either next week or the following payday, then we need bottles, formula, baby wipes, butt stuff, a few more sheets, and the baby bathtub and all that goes with it. And then I think we're pretty much set. I don't think I'm nesting necessarily, but I just will feel better when we've got everything we need and I can stop worrying about it. I'm still up in the air about a swing and some sort of sleeper for the living room, but those aren't must-haves in my mind just yet.
Anyhoo. Just wondering if anyone else has gotten completely crazed with baby stuff just yet. It's still early, really. I'm think I'm just a bit out-of-control. LOL!
