Gearing up for baby!

A lot of decisions need to be made when bringing a new baby into the family. What car seat, stroller, swing and other things to get. We sold Alexis's car seat to a friend when she was to big for it, so we are going to get this one! We will keep this one until we are done having kids. As for the stroller we have been using an umbrella type for quite awhile and that just won't due for a tiny baby, we are getting this double one. I loved my swing for Alexis, but sadly I let my sister in law use it and she gave it to Goodwill instead of giving it back so we need to buy a new one. I love that they are making ones that plug in and I found one that isn't $150! It is the same brand as my first one too. Look here for that. We are so excited to get our tax return so we can buy this stuff! Fun stuff. I washed up all my tiny newborn clothes yesterday and got them folded into the basket. I thought I had a lot more, but now that I look back I realize that Alexis was 9 pounds so I bought 0-3 month clothes. I washed them up too, but still only came up with 5 onsies, 2 gowns, a blanket sleeper, 3 dresses, 3 pant sets and a 3 one piece outfits. So I we will need a few more things, especially some pj's. I only have 2 newborn hats. It is hard to know what to get though, I guess it depends on when this baby comes as to what size we will need first. I plan on waiting until the summer stuff starts to go on sale. It will be hard though!

3 lil' notes:

Just let the doting Grandma know what is needed and it will appear!

I loved my friend's double stroller. I never bought one, until I found a good double jogging stroller. It's so nice to be able to "contain" kids occasionally!
