So this week my impending due date has really started to hit me. There is just so much to get done before Number 3 makes his or her appearance. The closer the date comes the more I also like to think about what it is I need for this baby. Thank G-d I have a beautiful boy and girl already so clothing is not a problem. So today I thought I would share my wish list for this baby.
The first thing on my list is the Phil and Ted’s stroller (I love the dash and the vibe). After my second I wanted to get this but he walked so much it was not really worth it. I soon learned that when he gets tired he needs to be picked up, and so many times I ended up pushing with one hand and carrying him or finding a way to make my single a double. So, this time I hope to get the Phil and Ted’s.
There is so much good about this stroller. Like it can convert to a single for days when yo only need to take one kid. It fits through doors because it is only as wide as a single. Finally, the newest version folds with the wheels and the second seat still attached, making set up and folding a snap.
The next thing on my list is a new swing. I find that the one I had is not meant for newborns and that is when I find a swing most useful.
I am in love with the Graco Sweetpeace. I love everything about this swing. I love that it has so many motions and directions to swing so your baby feels like it is in your arms. I love that you can put the baby in while swaddled. I love how soft the materials are. i also love that it has so many sounds and the option to attach an mp3 player so baby can be exposed to all kinds of sound and music. I really love that you can plug it in or let it run on batteries giving so many options. As you can see, I love everything about this swing.
The third thing on my list is a rocking chair. I wish I’d had one for my last two kids but there was just no room for it anywhere in our apartment. I have not yet decided which one to get. I am torn between a traditional glider rocking chair and a more padded arm chair type one. I will have to do more research but when I know you will know too.
Finally, I want to get some beautiful bedding for my crib. I am hoping that soon I will have a nursery and be able to decorate it. I can’t wait to get beautiful sheets to match. Check out my post…The Fabulous Part of Fabulous Mommy (part 3)…to see my ideas for creating a nursery that is gender neutral.
Counting down the days…
