Have you purchased anything for the new baby? If so, what?
I haven't. My aunt gave me a shirt that says My Auntie Rocks for the baby, but other than that nothing new so far. We don't need much since we have one of each. I think the only thing we really need is a carseat.
Yep, we buy one little thing under $10 every weekend it's a fun thing to look forward to.
We have bought a green and yellow onesie with with elephants, two really cute pacis a winnie the pooh hand puppet stroller toy, and the first thing I bought was a pack of 6 pairs of baby socks (what I used to tell DH I was pregnant). We also were gifted a book and a cute onesie from the Gap!
We need only a few things this time around. Those are things that we had borrowed last time, and given back to the original owners.
At garage sales/secondhand, I've bought:
floor gym playmat
cloth diaper cover
A friend gave us:
crib mattress pad
pack of 2 crib sheets
what I've bought new:
a gender-neutral outfit
box of size 1 diapers
I think that's it. I have a list, and every time I head out shopping I check out my list before I go incase I run across something on sale, etc.
I haven't bought ONE thing yet. But I have gotten a few things as gifts. Like yesterday for my birthday my BFF gave me two Dr. Suess books to start our collection since I'm doing the room in Dr. suess. I guess I'm waiting to find out the gender for sure. And honestly....since this is my first baby, I don't really know what to buy. I know I am having a couple showers, so I don't know all we will get. It's really kind of overwhelming to me.
