Will's Father: Congratulations, Grace, we have a gift for you!
Grace: Oooh, a present? For me!?
Will's Father: Well, no, for the baby.
Grace: Ahhh. Well that's nice too.
I have been asked by my darling bff (Tambi Jeanne ----> click her button, Little Mrs. Sunshine) to put together a Wish List for my upcoming baby shower she is throwing for me. Yes, this is my second but the Etiquette Rules I have researched say that if it has been more than 3 years, is the first with this husband, or (my fave) because you just want to celebrate then it's totally okay.
Since I have had a little boy and my sisters have had several little boys I don't really need anything... 'cept new cloth diapers, bottles, and a breast pump! So I've put together a short list of things I want, that will make my life a bit easier I think.
So my mom sent me a variety of cloth diapers when Aiden Gray was born and I found the easiest ones to use were the ones with velcro or the ones with snaps. My only disappointment was that they didn't really grow with him. After a few weeks, I couldn't use them anymore. Some made GREAT cloth rags for cleaning but most were donated to help a woman's shelter in Asia after the typhoon hit. I've been doing research and I want to go with these Thirsties diapers. They versatile and this design grows with the little tyke!
Thirsties Duo Wrap Snap Diaper Size One
I have used a breast pump before and I could not imagine life with out one. I had both an electric and a manual. I hated the electric one... the discomfort and the likeness to being milked like a cow were enough to make me dread it! So yes, manual it is!
Medela Harmony Manual Pump
I could actually use this Yoga DVD now! I read an excellent review of it over at Manic Mrs. Stone and I am excited to try it. I was just beginning a daily yoga regimen when I found out I was pregnant, but then I was just too nauseous to stretch or lean in any way.
ADORABLE Baby Boy Burp Cloths
Declan already loves to be all balled up in my belly and I'm betting biscuits that he'll be down for snuggling close to me during the day! This wrap appears to be the most versatile I've seen yet!
THIS Grey Boba Baby Wrap
THIS would make an ADORABLE DIY gift!
I'm absolutely terrified of giving a baby a bath. As a matter of fact I'm pretty sure that, like last time, my mother will bathe my baby for the first 2 weeks of his life! Unless.... I have this. I couldn't possibly hurt him!
