I'd like to think I'm going to be an amazing mom! I pray that it will come naturally to me.... and that my baby always feels loved and well taken care of. But the truth is, the only baby I've had to feed, clean and take care of daily is:
My 26 year old husband. Yup.
So! I'm asking for as much advice as you all will share with me! Eric and I (did I say Eric and I? Because really, I just meant Eric) like to research, research, research before we make big purchases. And we have a whole lotta big AND little purchases coming up.... and we don't really know where to begin.
So momma's, PLEASE share with me your favorite and least favorite purchases you made for your precious little one. What MUST we have, and what can we live without? What are your favorite brands for bottles, pumps, car seats, strollers, cribs, baby shampoo, high chairs, anything and EVERYTHING! Diaper bags... is Petunia Pickle Bottom the only way to go? What's your favorite material for blankets (not that I'll be making any... I can't sew. But that doesn't mean I can't drop hints for what I'm hoping my loved ones will make for my baby, right? HA!) Seriously though.... I really want to know your opinion on everything! Eric and I are getting ready to start making purchases so that we aren't paying out the $$ just before the baby comes. It seems less painful to spread it out, right? :) I'll tell you ahead of time that we appreciate all your thoughts and advice... thank you!!
