Baby Thoughts

Lots of baby related things running through my mind:

1. Today, I am feeling so thankful for where I am right now. I am thankful to be pregnant. I am thankful this baby will be born with parents that love each other more than ever before.
2. I have this frame with "All because two people fell in love" on it. I have been waiting for the day I could put our baby's ultrasound picture in it. While in the shower, I heard a song with those words in it, and remembered! Finally, the frame will be used!
3. I started our baby's scrapbook today. There are 4 pages so far. Basically, the pictures of the positive tests, cards, and the ultrasounds. I love it so far and cant wait to add each week.
4. Our meeting went well yesterday. I couldn't help but look around the room and wonder who got pregnant naturally and who had assistance.
5. I am totally in love with this swing. It is unbelievably soft and comfortable. Plus, it has chocolate brown in it, which is the color of our family room furniture.

6. We do plan on finding out the sex. However, I imagine we will still go neutral on a lot of the big items. We hope to have another baby right after this one, so we don't want to have to buy new things because everything we own is blue/pink.
7. I am planning on taking weekly belly pictures beginning this Saturday, which is 8 weeks.
8. I have never been a fan of odd numbers, but I think 11-7-09 is the most beautiful date in the world.

beautiful swing!

Slings...I have always preferred a ring sling because they are completely adjustable, and the tail can double as a nursing cover!

I have also used a Moby wrap, which is great if you are going to have the baby in for long periods of time.

I have never been a fan of the pouch, but some women LOVE them.

Keep away from padded slings. They seem nicer, but in my experience...the simpler the sling the better.

Remember, the key to baby wearing is PRACTICE! It feels un-natural at first, but babies love it and after a few baby wearing sessions, you will love it too!

I loved my maya wrap ring slings ( original sling.

Hope that helps!!!! :)

oooo, check out the Amby Baby bed too....they are amazing.

Baby thoughts are the best.

I LOVE the date, my bday is 11-9-79, so I am partial to those numbers ;)

Have fun picking out all the loot, it is a blast. I would advise to buy used when possible and save the difference because they outgrow so much of is SO quickly, even with multiple kids some of the stuff sees literally a few months of usage total.

I agree a great day!!! Congrats girlie!!

I just found your blog a few weeks ago and wanted to officially say "Congrats" on the BFP. I'll be following along closely because our due dates are 3 weeks apart - I'm due on Thanksgiving Day.

Since you're ahead of me, I'm expecting lots of details so I know what I'm in for! :)
