Getting everything ready for her has also been going quite swimmingly. We have finally got all the furniture we need (except for a rocking chair that I still need to pick up from my boss) and that is a huge relief! I think we are basically done with all the big things and I think we are just on to the little things. Man, babies require a lot of stuff and that is coming from someone who has been getting the bare minimum! Here are some of our latest aquirements:
Target Bookcase: on sale for $15!
A woman at Nate's summer job gave us a bassinet,
a changing table,
and a whole bag of clothes including these adorable pj's.
I am really excited about this bin - I saw a bunch of them in the Target $1 section and couldn't think of a single thing to put them in or where we would put them so I didn't get them. The next time I was at Target, I decided they were so cute I had to get some but they were all gone! Every time I have been to Target I look at the $1 section and cry a little bit because these were so cute. But then one day, Nate and I walked in and I saw just this one sitting there, on the shelf, calling my name. I was so excited! Isn't it so perfect?
Once we get the rocking chair and the room put together in a somewhat more respectable looking manner I will post pictures of the whole room! We have been really lucky and a lot of our stuff has been given to us. In total we have only spent $140 on all baby stuff and that includes the three months of diapers (which are expensive, even if you do get them on sale!) Good thing it takes about 9 months for a baby, that has given me all the time I need to get things at a reasonable price. It has also given me plenty of time to read lots of books on birth, child care and other things that come along with a new baby. So many books! So much reading!!
And here is a blurry, not so very good picture of me and little whale baby. I'll try to get a better one but I figured this was better than nothing.
What I am looking forward to the most is seeing what our little girl looks like and what her personality is like. I am just so excited to meet her!
