Super Exciting & Overwhelming

Our house is filling up with baby stuff!!!

So far we have a crib (thanks hubby's mom!), a play pen (thanks dad!), a swing (borrowed from a friend). a play gym (super cheap at the thrift store) and TONS of clothes. I know that what we have is no where near what we will need, but still, it feels like a lot!

I think we have all we will need for 0-3 months (a big bin stuffed full) and are close on 3-6 (a big bin almost full). I'm planning to hit a few consignment sales in the next couple of months to stock up on bigger sizes.

All of this is BEFORE any of my baby showers. I was originally thinking I would only have one shower with a part of hubbys family, but apparently I am having 5 baby showers! I don't even feel like I know enough people for that! Each shower will be fairly small, but I think that will be awesome. If I had one big shower, I wouldn't be able to spend much time with everyone. This way I can acutally talk to everyone who comes instead of just having time to eat cake and open gifts. Plus this way I won't be overwhelmed at any of the showers.

This many different showers also helps with the geographic issues of living in a different state from my family. I'm having two showers in San Antonio (one for dad's side and one for mom's, I'll write a full post on that drama one day) and one in the Dallas area (hubby's family & college friends) and two in New Mexico (one a friend is throwing and one at work, none of the details on these two are set yet).  That should have our munchkin decked out very well!

I'm headed to Texas for over a week in just over two weeks. I can't believe that I have made it to the point of having baby showers!!!

I am so thankful for our family and friends being so generous to us! Having to worry about buying everything for the little man, on top of all of the job and living arrangement worries would be too much. I am so relieved to know that he will have everything that he needs and more.


  1. Yay!! Can't wait to see pix from all the showers! We'll have to make a photo book of all of them! :-)

  2. This is definitely good news! I think small showers are nice, too. Really excited for you =) Oh, and congratulations on only 100 days left!

  3. It is most certainly a wonderful feeling to have those things in your home :)
