I'm 20 weeks.
We had the 'real' ultrasound today.
He is still really active in there!
One second he's all stretched out,
next second he's in a ball
with his little feet resting on his head!
The tech thought it was cute & printed the picture for us,
I'll post it when we get it scanned.
I've been reading some parenting books.
Those are interesting.
But more on my mind than how to
discipline a two year old,
is what I am I going to need when this kid comes out?
(I am SO type A!)
I know the basics...
diapers. wipes. bottles. binks. blankets. clothing.
car seat. stroller. something to sleep in. burp cloth thingy.
But just about every time I talk to someone
they mention something that I've never thought about.
Oh yeah. A breast pump.
I'll probably need one of those.
What? Car seats are not all
essentially the same?
I'm going to want how many!? onesies?
And then I stroll the aisle at
Babies R Us, or just the baby section at Target,
and I see ALL KINDS OF STUFF
and I can't help but wonder
what is actually needed,
what really is useful,
and what is just playing on parents
who will buy anything and everything marketed
to a parent-to-be?
You know what I mean?
Tell me what I really need!
