So excited that we have reached another milestone!

It’s been a sort of busy/crazy week.  Every since we had our ultrasound last week I feel like I have been floating.  The days pass and I think, what have I accomplished.  I keep thinking of our little boy, now that we know!  And since Monday I have been researching and adding things to our registry.  It is fun, but sometimes I feel overwhelmed with everything out there and feel like I might forget something important.  Or what kind of this do I need or kind of that…because there are so many!  I am grateful that I have the crib and stroller/car seat combo picked out.  My mom is going to get those for us.  So I will be getting those in the next couple of weeks.  At least it will feel like I have something accomplished.  I did my research on Consumer Reports and read reviews and think I made good decisions.  For those interested here is what we are getting:

Babies R Us carries this one but did not have the color we wanted.  And Wal-mart has it for less money!  Score!  We did get to look at it and touch it and I think it will be just right!  I will probably get the matching changing table too.

I like this Travel System because the car seat fits a baby up to 30 pounds and the stroller is up to 50 pounds.  And it fits perfectly together.

I was also able to ask a mom friend of mine about some of the things she could not live without and some of the things she didn’t need.  I was on the fence about a swing and she suggested that I get a bouncy chair instead and that I could borrow the swing she had.  Yay!  That helps a lot, because you never know if your baby would like the swing or not.  So now we can test it out.

So aside from the baby stuff, I have been helping hubby with a big project for his work.  And by the looks of things I will be helping with it for at least another week.  I don’t mind.  It helps me to focus on things other than baby. 🙂

So now it is time to get back to work.

Thanks for reading!

    Congrats on your halfway milestone.

    Love the crib and the Travel System!

    Maybe you’ve said it before, but are you going to be a stay at home mom? I would love to be able to do that, if we have kids, but I don’t think it will be financially possible.
