    Rocker
    Car Seat
    Extra Base
    Stroller
    Monitor
    10 bottles each of soap, powder, and cream
    300 count box of stage 1 diapers
    about 1500 wipes
    2 trashbag fulls of baby clothes up to 12 months (thanks to my brother)
    Diaper Bag
    Blankets
    Changing Table
    Bottles
    Different staged nipples
    Swing and Crib will be bought next month
    Luckily won't need to worry about pump cause will be getting that from my brothers wife.

    Hope to have everything done and bought and ready to go by 8 months, including the little things.

    We have enough left from the last one so I expect all we will be buying is some newborn diapers (though not too many) and a second car seat. I will be making a crochet sweater/bib/bootie set. I think that is about it.

    I'm 27 weeks today and we started buying in the last two weeks to spread out the cost of this stuff. Plus, we were told to have most items bought by 32 weeks, and READY for baby by 36 weeks.

    We have:

    Maxi Cosi Mico Carseat
    Maxi Cosi Priori Carseat (for when he outgrows the Mico, we got a deal and bought both)
    Quinny Zapp Stroller
    Crib
    Organic Mattress
    A few onesies, towels, books, and toys that have been given to us
    3 AIO cloth diapers

    We still need to get:
    10-12 more AIO cloth diapers, also diaper bag/diaper pail/etc.
    Clothes! We have almost nothing at the moment
    Sheets/linens, etc.
    Carriers (Ergo and Moby)
    Baby bathtub of some kind
    Baby sling seat and swing (I have them picked out, just need to buy them)
    Glider/Rocker

    That's just the basics for when he's in the first few months. . .we'll probably get a ton of clothes, etc. at the shower as well. SO FUN getting baby stuff!

    Ug, we went a little crazy and have ordered our nursery furniture (convertible crib, dresser with hutch, rocking chair and ottomon), jogger stroller, moby wrap, front carrier, burp cloths, onesies, pj's, socks, scratch mits, diapers, wipes, oh goodness lots. We went to a consignment sale they have here in the area twice yearly and found some great deals, here are some pictures. We had such fun and figured out we saved over $200 on stuff we wanted and needed so we felt great about the purchases!! Can you tell we're excited??https://i1227.photobucket.com/albums/ee433/bookaholicca/011.jpghttps://i1227.photobucket.com/albums/ee433/bookaholicca/010.jpghttps://i1227.photobucket.com/albums/ee433/bookaholicca/004.jpg

    Oh my goodness I feel like a lazy momma! I haven't bought a single thing for the new baby. Nothing. I haven't really had the urge! We are moving in July so I think once we get to our new place I will suddenly have the urge to pick up:

    double stroller
    organic onsies/sleepers
    another crib
    some crib sheets
    a few infant toys
    car seat

    Other than that, I am waiting till the baby comes to see what else I want to get this time around. We have some things from our first, but not too much...

    I only bought a couple clothes, my aunt has bought him a few clothes. Everyone`s telling me to hold off on buying the baby anything because i may just get everything at the baby shower. But it`s so hard not to want to buy LO anything, lol.
