So it just dawned on me that we need to still get our little jelly bean (Alli) alot of things in the next couple months to be ready for her arrival. I don't have a single stitch of clothing for her. I know I'm going to be set with blankets, quilts, burp clothes, and a bassinet thanks to my wonderful mothers:) But I don't even have socks for the kid.

So, I'm going to make a list of things (this is more for myself than anything) that I need to get before her arrival.

1)A Car Seat
2)A stroller (one of the car seat/stroller combos is what I'll prob. get)
3)Baby Soap (I actually have a few travel size ones but that's it)
4)Baby kit: You know with clippers, baby thermometer, nose sucky thing, etc. in it
5)CLOTHES. Like onesies, little dresses, a baby blessing dress, socks, hats, etc. etc. etc.
6)A Boppy Pillow--Looks like they are going for pretty cheap on Ebay right now! They are all under $35 at like target, jcpenny, sears, etc. so not too worried there either. Always easy to find them used as well and I'd love to make a cute cover for whatever one I get.
7)A Nursing cover (I'll prob. make one)
8)A Diaper Bag (I'm going to make one)
9)A Baby Bjorn. I know they are kind of pricey though...so maybe I can find a used one?
I just looked on ebay and they are going for under $50. Alot of them for under $20. So maybe I can get one.
10)I'd really like to have one of those Baby Bouncer things like this:

or a more generic color. But they are so nice!
This one I found on craigslist for $30 bucks...I'll have to see what the hubby says.
11) I'd like to either get or make a swaddle blanket. I know I can just use a receiving blanket though so it's not a big deal if I don't get one.
12)Breast Pump
That's all I can think of at the moment...I'm sure i'll think of more things.
I'm adding things to a Walmart baby gift registry right now. Trying to find the right stroller is crazy. I also added a bunch of things to a Sears registry. I like the Sears eddie bower stroller set, the pink and brown pack and play, and the wash tub best at Sears.
