A HUGE congratulations to you, Aleta.  You probably know I'm a giddy-happy Nana too.  (See my post on Sullivan's travels).  By the way, just in case it's a boy, they have adorable clothes for boys too and I saw an amazing pirate ship bed.

I was shocked when I first went shopping with my daughter too.  Travel system?  Ohhhh, a stroller and a car seat.  We went to babiesRUs where they let you take items off the shelf (high chairs, pack-n-plays, etc.) and set them up, take them down.  That will rule out some items you thought you liked.  They also have a car seat (I mean the seat out of a car) in the store so you can check the ease, and learn the right way, to install the baby car seat. I was also amazed by the baby bath tub with the jacuzzi jets.  Anyway, I highly recommend babies4Us for the essentials.  Be aware, though, you may come out of the store with a bag full of cute clothes too.

I'm still in the process of designing the perfect diaper bag.  We already bought the fabric and the buckles etc.  Hopefully I'll get it done before she doesn't need it.  Oh well, always baby number two.

Can't wait for pictures of your little one.

Aleta that its wonderful news!!! It's funny that a new baby in the family is the catalist for so much new love, not only the love for the tiny new person, but it also lets us love our husband and our parents in a whole new way. I love watching my mom and dad with our boys. They are wonderful grandparents!

Oh, and things called Swaddlers?  Wrapping babies like a stuffed sausage is comforting?  Really?!!


Stuffed sausage :crackup: It really did seem like swaddling our newborns comforted them---but we used a different food analogy---we called the boy's "Burrito Babies" when they were all wrapped up like that!

HI Aleta
Huge congratulations- its the best job in the whole world being a grandparent. One suggestion I have for you is every time you go shopping buy a package of diapers so that when the baby arrives they will have lots. Buy them in different sizes so they will come in handy as the baby grows. By the time the baby arrives you may have enough for the whole first year and they are expensive so it will save the parents a lot of money. Always good to take advatage of sales as well!!!

Excellent idea, Gail!!  bear_flower

May 3rd.  It's a ways off.  We're still holding our breath waiting for the first trimester to pass.  Brittany was carrying twins.  Now there is only one.  We're sad that one didn't make it and we're praying and hoping that this lone baby continues to thrive!
