My son is five years old (will be six when baby is born) and a whole bunch of friends/family have given birth in the last year, so I will have tons of baby clothes/furniture for free/cheap. But I want to SHOP!!!! :lol: I think shopping helped make the pregnancy real last time. I know we won't be buying hardly any furniture for baby (thinking we will borrow a baby bouncer, and possibly an exersaucer for later). We gave away our jogging stroller, so we need to get one of those (a must have for our non-sidewalk, off road, country area, when parents are jogging, or grandparents take baby). POssibly a highchair, but those are super cheap, and we can wait on that.
I would love to try out a bunch of different kinds of CDs, but we will probably rely on prefolds and covers again. Those are just our faves-- cheap and easy :).
My Babyhawk MT is still alive and kicking after 3.5 years of carrying DS. I love it, and wouldn't trade it for anything. None of the slings I tried last time really worked for me. I have a big bust/big belly, and just wasn't comfortable. DH will most likely need a sling, since he was much more comfortable with the sling than with the MT when DS was an infant.
Like I said, I have lots of sources for clothes (cousin had a girl in Sept., and a friend is waiting to see what I am having before she gets rid of her baby clothes :lol:), and my local thrift stores have bag sales all the time, so I am not worried about those.
So, anyone planning WAAAAY ahead?
