the crib set we bought...


the crib set we bought..., originally uploaded by shellipsm.



So we actually BOUGHT things today. At a baby store. After three years, we have finally given ourselves permission to go IN one. And I know that many of you have asked for a wish list.

But we really don't need much! We bought a crib, crib set, dresser, changing pad, appropriate linens, a few articles of clothing (OH MY GOSH, THERE'S JUST WAAAAAAY TOO MUCH CUTE STUFF OUT THERE!) (We find ourselves leaning towards greens and blues and yellows); we also bought a car seat, a car seat holder, and we have a McClaren Techno XT and a back pack in our basement storage unit already, as was given to us by a friend about a year ago.

We have ordered diapers, Narda's best friend is sending all things needed to wash and clean a baby, creams and ointments and such, and we could basically use some of your used clothes - or go to a local thrift store and find something cute and retro!

I'm sure there's a lot we'll find we'll need, but there's also a lot of crap we won't need.
So go and raid those attics, and have fun doing so.

soooo cute. I also have a very strong dislike for the color pink, so this is just the kind of thing I would buy. Isn't it amazing how much cute stuff is out there???

Oh, I love the stuff you purchased. I am sure your daughter will love it too:)

I found your site through Flickr. :-) I love your icon- why do cats feel the need to drink out of the toilet and leave pawprints everywhere!

Oh and I really love hydrangeas too.

The crib set is adorable! Yea for getting the stuff you need! I love it when people get stuff for us, but it is SO FUN to shop for your own baby too.

I have some cute shoes to send your way. My DD had too chubby of feet and whether they'll fit your DD or not I'm not sure but they are cute. E-mail me your name and address and I'll try to send it out in the next week or two. plk1977@yahoo.com
I was the one that was gonna send you all the baby clothes but your adoption didn't go through and I got rid of the items. Ug. Anyway, if you want them let me know. I love the crib set by the way! It's very cute.
