We're doing pretty well with the accumulating baby stuff, too. We've got a crib, glider chair with ottoman (for breastfeeding), a play mat, a swing, and a walker now... also, Baby's First Book. We were looking around in the Babies R Us the other night waiting for Chris and Karen to be ready for Chris' birthday dinner, and I picked up a "go to sleep story" kind of book. The illustrations were really cute, the story was rhyme-y and simple in a Dr.-Seuss-but-not-so-trippy kind of way, and I could totally see being willing to read it night after night after night for a few years. I figured all that added up to "better go ahead and buy this now", so I did.
All that stuff? About $100. The book was about $10 new, the crib was free from Janis' sister, and we got the rest of the stuff for $90 off of Craigslist. How freaking awesome is that?
Still don't have a carseat, but we've got three more months to handle it.
Also, my mom and my stepdad are coming for a week, starting a few days after the birth, to help out with the baby, which Janis and I are both thrilled about. Possibly even more thrilled about than Scott is thrilled about being a grand-dad... but then again, possibly not. =)
We'll keep you posted.
