Oh, the baby list!

     As my due date gets closer and closer I am finally starting to really look for the things I need.  A while back I took some time to look at different bedding, exhibit A, but that was a far as it got.  🙂

     Our newest addition will be arriving at a time of year that is much warmer than our other children.  What does this mean?  It means I have no clothing for her!   I have purchased a few outfits.  One of them is for the family picture we are doing once she finally arrives.  A few outfits is not enough. 

     My baby list for clothing includes sweet things like:

baby socks,



and adorable outfits.



     Hopefully I will find some outfits like these!  I love the outfits with diaper covers.  Especially if they have ruffles on the tush.  LOL  Too cute!

     I need to pop over to Bella Bottoms and order some more of my favorite cloth diapers.   I am still on the lookout for diaper covers.  I have yet to find some that I am totally in love with.

     Rounding out my list, for the moment, is one of my favorite items- those wonderful swaths of fabric made just for babywearing.  I have a sling and I also have a wrap that consists of about 4 yards of material.  The sling is nice but really engulfs babies.  I have no idea how to wear the one made of yards and yards of fabric.  It is cool looking, but I come out looking like a mummy.  Not the fashion statement I am looking for.  So, I am also on the hunt for a great sling/ babywearing device.   🙂

     I am off to get ready to go.  When I take Ms. Firecracker (8 ) to gymnastics practice the rest of the kids and I are going baby shopping.  Let’s see what treasures I will find on sale!!

    Until later my friends.

Leaning on God,

  1. If you can find an Ergo I highly recommend them! New they run about $100, but maybe you can find one used? Just make sure it’s a newer model because there was a recall on some of the buckles I believe a couple years ago.
    Have fun shopping!

  2. My girls were born in June, but even so I really never put them in true “summer” outfits. They were so super tiny, and we use A/C most of the summer, so I was constantly bundling them up rather than dressing them down in summer clothes. Just something to consider. 🙂 We used a lot of those long sleeved gowns, the ones with the flaps at the ends of the arms to turn them into “mits”.

  4. (those gowns are the best! we call them “baby bags”:)

    my friend wears her babies comfortably in a ring sling from day one, but i didn’t quite figure it out until my babe was older. i had a pouch sling (from target) that worked well when she was teeny, but i’m planning with baby #2 to figure out the ring sling, bc i like how in that the baby is at your chest instead of down low in the pouch.

    we use mother-ease diaper covers and love them over prefolds or fitted diapers. they are very adjustable and take a long time to size out of. (my petite girl has been in the same size for well over a year.)

    blessings to you on a safe delivery (and recovery) and on your beautiful baby girl!
