Shopping and getting ready

We got some baby shopping done over the weekend. It feels good to have things a bit more organized, even though we dont have any of it yet. Everything is on order. We got a stroller/car seat (a gift from Ashton's parents), and a change table (a gift from my parents) and a crib (another gift from my parents that was supposed to be a surprise, but isnt anymore!). The only problem is that the crib might not get here until May 10th! That is 5 days before the baby is due. So...we might have to improvise for a few days if the baby comes early. We should have a playpen though, so that should work.

Here are some pics of what is coming:

Stroller (except in Navy, not green):

The stroller in the store (green) was not on sale, but if we ordered a navy colored one from the catalog, it was on clearance, plus we got another 30% off that day. So...even though the green is sort of cool - we went with navy!

My mom and I also went fabric shopping because she is going to sew some bumper pads for the crib. It took 3 stores, and then going back to the first one, to find what we wanted! I acutally ended up picking a plain cream color fabric, and accenting it with some Pooh recieving blankets from the baby section. I got a matching crib sheet, so it should all work nicely. She is also sewing me a crib caddy and a chair caddy. What a nice grandma-to-be! :)

We also did some shopping for ourselves this weekend, and bought a new mattress. We have wanted one for quite a while now as ours has seen better years - it was given to us when we got married and I have no idea how old it is. We went from a double to a king! Yay! But it isnt here yet- my parents are bringing it up here on Friday. It was also on sale. Double yay!

I am now past the 6 month mark and it is really starting to sink in, especially with the shopping this weekend. Oh - I also found some Maple Leafs booties and soother clip - just for ashton! It is needed to balance out all of the Pooh!

Ah the baby stuff. It's here for a while for sure. Awesome that you got some good deals and the "new" grandparents are helping out with some of it.

Ah the king bed must be so nice. I don't think I could go back now.
