Has anybody else bought anything yet?
I don't know why but I am dying to buy something for this baby! Silly, I know. I am thinking of buying some yarn to knit a soaker or some longies. That would probably be the most practical thing b/c I don't really need much at all.
Has anybody else bought anything yet?

I bought these adorable crocheted hats from a street vendor long before I was even pregnant. They look like a bluebell with the stem coming out of the top. Really cute. But I haven't gotten anything for the baby since I've been pregnant. I'm kinda holding off until the u/s.
I will get a ton of hand-me-downs because my sister in law just had twins, a boy and a girl! So no matter what I am good! Their b-day is in July so they will be a year apart. Good timing on my part I should say. She has been talking about giving me all of her stuff for a while now. The other good thing is that the clothes will all be the right season!
When she was buying a co-sleeper she asked me which one I wanted so that I will like it when I get it. lol!
I really want to knit some stuff though. I am not the best knitter, but winter always makes me want to. I ordered a few hat books from the library.

And I am pretty sure that I will end up buying a few more.
I am a bit of a carrier addict.

With my first, we had just found out his gender and we bought tons of "Christmas" gifts and after the first of he year we kept buying and buying lol...then I gave almost everything away---and we still have more than enough. Oh well, you live and learn lol.
No! I'm waiting for our container to arrive from South Africa to see what I packed :-) Not planning on finding out the sex of this baby, but if it is a boy we are sure to have enough clothes since we already have six boys. If it is a girl, that will be a totally different story!!! :-) :-)
As for me, I've bought a few second-hand cloth diapers (most of my dd2's are lent out, and I want some new fluff!!), and a couple of nice unbleached cotton sleepers that were on clearance. I got a lot of 100% cotton stuff from an American Apparel co-op for the baby that I m/c, so that stuff is fresh and washed for this little bundle too!
Mama to DS (6/07) , DD (6/09) , and DD (07/12) ..
DH and I were shooting for a new baby to arrive between May and July - our DD is a May baby and DS is a July baby and I saved EVERYTHING, so no matter which gender we have, I have more than enough seasonal clothes. We still have all our other baby gear.
I'm looking forward to buying a new baby carrier (probably a Wrapsody wrap) and a new diaper bag! I LOVE getting a new, snazzy diaper bag. My first was so boring and utilitarian so since I didn't need to buy any new gear for the second, I splurged on a bag. I plan on doing it this time, too! I might buy cloth diapers, I can't decide if I want to try that route or not. I've always used disposables, but I might make the change since we'll be in our own house by then, with our own washer and dryer...
Will definitely hit garage sales this summer, though. DD was an October baby so will need some NB stuff in tiny sizes. We plan to find out what the baby is, and if it's a boy, we'll likely inherit a bunch from friends, but will probably buy a few things, especially deals at garage sales since I imagine this will be our last summer of family garage-saleing for a while. Just can't imagine doing it with 2 kids. With DD, I really stocked up and even got up to 4T sizes which was impulsive but wonderful in retrospect.
Trying to be a joyful Catholic wife and mama, and taking it one day at a time!
joyful mama to DS 2-05, open adoption birthmama to DD 5-07: and DS 6-98, and my littlest one 7-09. crazy in love with DH!
I love that he's the first to make a new baby purchase!
I'm loving the Earth Mama Angel Baby stuff. The Earth Mama Body Butter is awesome. I cannot wait to find out the sex though and go shopping . I'd love to wait until the birth, but I can't do it. I'm a control freak and need to plan plan plan.
That will be the first purchase. And one of the few.
I mainly just need to make a few furniture purchases. The new baby's room is currently my office (although it will sleep with me for quite awhile, I like to get the room set up), and I will need to buy a creative storage solution to move my office into DH's office. If I have another girl I will give her DD's current furniture and buy a new bed and dresser for DD.
