You hear a million quotes about having a baby. One I am guessing that has never been uttered is "nothing will change, your life will be the same"
I know this. I went into this willingly. I am not complaining, quite the opposite really. Heck I did fertility treatments. I WANTED this. I just look at it sometimes and have to giggle how much things change.
Who is a fill up your online cart and let it sit person? Only to never buy it or to use it as a "wish list" and eventually buy a thing or two on it? Raise your hand.
Our family Amazon cart has stuff saved in it from 5 years ago. It has a little bit of everything in the "save for later" section. I was on there today and my cart as it stands today made me laugh. Do I need all of it. Probably not. Will I buy some of it. Maybe eventually. (I will the waterproof pad for sure) But it just made smile to see how even before she is born something as simple as "playing on the internet throwing things in a cart" has totally changed from say 6 months ago.
That's OK. I like this change.
While I have you here.
What are your newborn MUST HAVES? Any category? I love reading people's opinions on this. You never know when you are going to find a total gem of advice.
The mitts were recent advice from someone. She said how babies like to pull their mittens off so those mittens above are ones with little Velcro tabs so tighten them on so they can't take them off. Genius right? I haven't pulled the trigger due to price. But they sit there to remind me how smart they are.
