I think Matt and I have all of the baby gear we need to get through the first few weeks with our little one!
Matt’s parents, Nancy and George, generously bought us an Arm’s Reach co sleeper. We got it out and set it up for the first time last week. It’s fantastic! A bit larger than we anticipated, but will work perfectly!
My parents, Bobbi and Dave, bought us something they found extremely useful with their kids, a swing! So we have a VERY cute cradle swing that will hopefully be just as useful for us as their swing was for them!
Last weekend, Matt and I purchased our stroller and car seat which we LOVE! I’m so excited that we decided to go with the brand we did. They look soooo great and seem to function soo well! I’m sure two days after the baby is born I’ll have an entire blog dedicated to their shortcomings, but for now they are God’s gift to trendy, new parents.
We also received this giant box of baby gifts from our very close friends, Bill and Betty. Everything in that box was sooo great but the one thing we didn’t even think to get was a baby bag that Matt could carry around. Bill and Betty surprised us with a fantastic bag for him! I was so taken aback at their thoughtfulness. We are so lucky to have such great friends!
There is still so much more stuff on the “nice-to-have” list that will be purchased over the next few months but now that all the baby basics are covered I feel sooo ready for this little girl to get here. I can’t wait to put her in all the great stuff we have for her!
