Baby Girl!

We're having a girl! I was completely shocked. We were both so sure our baby was going to be a boy that I was dumb-founded when the doctor said "100% girl." I even asked, to nobody in particular, "what am I going to do with a girl?"
The shock has worn off and now I'm so excited. We registered for a good mix of pinks and other colors. I don't want it to look like a princess fairy threw up in her room and since my husband is determined she'll be a sports fan we might have a few "boy" toys in there too. We spent over 2 hours at Babies R Us only to have them lose our registry. I'm still hoping they find it because I really don't want to do it all over again. I'm think I'll just fill it out online if I have to. I've been picking up a few things along the way and we're getting our crib this week. Having a baby has opened up a whole new world of shopping for me LOL
Here's our baby girl sucking her thumb. She was so active during the ultrasound. I couldn't believe I couldn't feel her kicking and squirming. I'm supposed to feel the flutters any day now. I can't wait.

For all you mommies out there, is there any product you can't live without? All the bottle choices and stroller brands... way too many choices and my head is already spinning from reading so many reviews.


  1. Aww! Congratulations!
    I use the Born Free bottles. I also have the Avent Bottles those both work great!

  2. CONGRATS!!!!!!!!!!!! Products I couldn't live without? In the beginning- I used TONS of receiving blankets or cloth diapers as burp cloths. Actual burp cloths are too tiny (IMO). I also could not have lived with out my boppy newborn lounger. When we brought Kay home from the hospital, she would only sleep on me. It was getting stressful until someone suggested the lounger. Even though it says "don't let baby sleep on this"....we did- it was the only thing (other than me) at that point that she would sleep on. I loved the breast friend for nursing.

  3. congratulations! you are going to go broke buying all kinds of cute, girlie outfits.

  4. I still love the greens and blues on adele.

    Things i cant live without... chicco keyfit 30 carseat and the matching snap and go stroller. Super light and easy to drag into the store etc. Also swaddle blankets, playmat, breastpump if u plan to use it (medela) . Good luck!

  5. Congratulations, this is awesome. You're going to have a lot of fun buying teeny tiny girly outfits!! :)
