    Since this is #4, and the last 2 were boys as well, it is hard to justify buying anything new!

    I did buy some Aden and Anais blankets, which I've never had before, so I'm pretty excited about that! I also am planning to buy a new stretchy wrap - I have a Moby and a Boba already, but I want a nice, lightweight stretchy wrap (planning on the Solly Baby bamboo wrap) for the hot summer months.

    Other than that, I keep drooling over Petunia Pickle Bottom bags, but I just bought 2 of them for #3 in 2011 so I probably won't be splurging again!

    A double stroller and a medela swing breast pump to keep in my new ppb diaper bag. I also just bought 3 woombie old fashion air wrap swaddling blankets for the new bassinet and chicco liteway stroller I also just purchased lol. I wouldn't mind a better carrier of some kind but idk which to get. I have a moby already.

    a new house.

    Our splurge will be a double all-terrain stroller and I would like a vera bradley diaper bag.

    I think I'd like a new wrap (I have a moby, but its hard to put on I think) Any suggestions?

    I bought my medela pump in style off ebay for DS. It was never used and I saved over $100 on it.

    Are you looking for a wrap, or a carrier? Pretty much all stretchy wraps have the same basic wrapping instructions, so keep on wrapping until you get the hang of it! I like my Moby, but I find the fabric quite thick (which is good for support, but not to steamy summer months) so I'm getting a thinner one. You could always try another stretchy wrap, or you could go for a woven wrap. Stretchy wraps are only good for front carries, and only until baby is about 20 lbs, or 1 year old. If you plan to babywear for longer than that, a woven wrap would be smarter. Woven wraps are NOT stretchy, and you can do tons of different carries with them (front, back, hip, lots of different styles) - just remember that baby should never face away from your body. They can also be used for newborns as well.

    I plan to get a bamboo stretchy wrap (way thinner material) from Solly Baby. I might splurge on a woven wrap later on.

    Or you could try out a SSC like an Ergo, Boba, or Beco. All good choices! You might want to go to a baby boutique and try on a bunch of different wraps and carriers to see what you like!

    I would like to spend a silly amount of money on a wrap.

    I really would love a new video monitor. Mine isn't digital so it has a ton of static and it only can accomodate 2 cameras and you have to manually switch between them (it doesn't scan). The one I want is like $250 buuuuut I think I'll just make do with a sound only monitor in my oldest's room for the occasional nights she has nightmares (my room is at the opposite end of the house from the kids so I can't hear them unless they're SCREAMING).

    I'm definitely getting some Aden and Anais blankets as I didn't have those last time...but I don't want gender neutral so I'm waiting to get those.

    Since I don't buy a lot new, yesterday I treated myself to a Rock n Play. The lamb one! It's so soft!

    Hmm....

    I'm not much into "stuff" it all feels like clutter to me. Maybe a thinner wrap for the pool since we will be there every day all summer. My Moby is dark blue and that won't be fun in the hot summer months.
