baby J

Hard to imagine in 7 or 8 weeks or more.... we will get to meet Baby J. It's gone so fast.
Some have been asking what he needs so I decided to make a little list...

A nursing pillow. A good old Boppy.... You can find them just about anywhere. Here is a link to a plain one. Because then it could be dressed up with this... ohh la la. In love. So sad they are sold out.. maybe she does custom jobs??

A diaper bag.. I know I have covered this topic here already but still have not gotten one. I think I may have found the one. Timi & Leslie bags are gorgeous and are multi functional which I love.
I think I have fallen hard for Hannah....
I've seen it all over the internet.. I love her in Pewter. What's a girl not to love?

This is Sophie - she is a safe toxic free giraffe. Perfect friend for teething babies.

Other than those things.. I need some newborn diapers... I want to use disposables just for the first month and am looking to go as eco friendly as possible so I would like to try Seventh Generation Diapers. I would also like to use their wipes to begin with as well. We have a good stock of Newborn Cloth Diapers and will need to expand our collection as he grows.

I think you can never have enough receiving blankets and could use a few more. For the boys we used them A-LOT! Not only as blankets but burp cloths as well.

Other than that we are preparing for our homebirth.. I am hoping to have a water birth. Our midwives got a new pool and it will fit nicely in our dining room.

It's hard to remember what it's like to have a baby and what you will need... I can't wait to meet Baby J and see what he is like.. The boys are having a hard time waiting.. I think the concept of time is so lost on them and this must be feeling like forever.

what's special about a receiving blanket? (like, what's sets them apart from regular blankets?) and i can't wait to meet him and find out what his name is ;)

Love that diaper bag!! And good luck with the home water birth. I hear that pool is nice! I'd like to try it to labor in.
Did you have your boys naturally as well or via c-section? You hardly hear of people having twins naturally these days!
Blessings to your family as you wait anxiously!!

I know what you mean about needing recieving blankets. My kids drooled through at least 5 a day for 6 months!
That diaper bag is AWESOME!!!! And that giraffe reminds me of a pony teether I had when I was teething. That once was probably not non-toxic...explains a lot LOL
My friend had a water birth and said it was the best. Not for me, but I hope it's all you need it to be.
Can't believe how fast this goes when it's not me that's pregnant!

that bag is totally you!

I swear by water for labouring.... I used the hot tub at St. B. with Sasha and dialated at an unbelievable pace. Maybe you could have the baby on the 13th and we'll all watch. That'd be fun.

Heather said...

LOL Karla - that made me laugh out loud.. can you imagine :)
Holly - receiving blankets for burp cloths, for swaddling, for covering, for EVERYTHING...
I know the bag is out of my (or rather dh's) price range but a girl can dream :)
