  • Wedding: May 2018 - Our home and the two acres it sits on

Gear, hmmm. Well, we’re having a boy (yay!) but we bought a few things a while back before we knew for sure:

Graco Snugride 35 car seat – it’s been living in the car, but not installed, just in the trunk.

Crib – just came in and we picked it up Thursday, it’s also living in the trunk of the car. In our defense, the nursery is still full of the stuff it held when it was a guest room/ office/ storage area, so stuff can’t go in there just yet.

Glider – we bought it via Craigslist (which I LOVE) but I need to recover it, no idea what I’ll decide on.

Cloth diapers – I bought half a dozen Grovia hybrids and thought I bought 8 gently used BumGenius AIO’s for a great price, but then I got screwed when the lady only shipped two of the eight and then claimed she wasn’t responsible. Argh. I filed a dispute with Paypal but it takes a while, so I’m grumpy.

I ran out of steam before I decided on a baby monitor, crib mattress, or, well, anything else. ๐Ÿ™‚ Our friends just had a baby 6 weeks ago and love their Rock N Play to death, so we are likely to get one of those.

Colors – green like grass, blue like sky, yellow like sunshine and anything bright like flowers! (This may remind some of the folks who have been around and bothered to read my wedding posts of my last-minute desperate wedding theme.) I think I’ll paint the nursery a dark gray/taupe color because it’s kind of like a treehouse, plus the dark neutral will balance the crazy bright colors we tend to love.

Aw, I want to play even though I haven’t found out the sex yet.

What are the top 5 baby gear things do you already have or know for sure you want?

We decided on the Davinci convertible cribs, and we like the Emily, plus the dresser, and changing tables too.

I want one of those spinning toys where they sit on it and turn the wheel to spin. My baby will have that. ๐Ÿ™‚

Lol, that’s all we’ve really decided until we go to the doctor’s again.

What colors/themes are you using in the nursery?

The nursery is blue, like a sky blue and the woods are a light colored oak. I already painted it that way, and I really don’t feel like painting it again. I think it will be a Twins (baseball) theme if its a boy, and just a blue room if its a girl. I haven’t decided on the curtain color yet.

All is on our registry unles otherwise noted

  1. Darling Husband is is into security, so we’re going to have a handheld video monitor with night vision as well as a security camera that is accessible via iphone and computer (also with nightvision)
  2. UppaBaby Vista Special Edition (aka yellow) Stroller.  Already purchased.
  3. Moby Wrap.  Dont know why, but I want one
  4. A glider I guess.  
  5. I guess I don’t really have a #5 either.  We havent been so into buying or really wanting things so I have some work to do here. 

What colors/themes are you using in the nursery?

We arent doing a “baby-ish” nursery.  Its going to be elegant and preppy.  Pink and navy blue, some damask patterns, and a vnyl wall decal of 6 huge floor to ceiling birch trees behind the crib.  Glider will be a neutral light tan burlap with some throw pillows, etc.

Even though it’s going to be hards to take out of the attic, we have all of Moose’s stuff, so we have clothes, bouncy seat, swing, play mat, blankets, diaper genie, pack and play, and some other stuff. The other stuff, we’re figuring out.

What colors/themes are you using in the nursery? 

Seriously, I have no idea, but I’ve decided I want to make as much as I can.

@regberadaisy:

sure!  I cant get too into what he does for a living, but it involves stuff like this.  It would be something similar to this camera, hardwired into the nursery and house.

What are the top 5 baby gear things do you already have or know for sure you want?

1. We already have a crib, matress, and changing table

2. Rocking chair (I really want one)

3. Darling Husband wants the 900 mHz baby monitor because I read somewhere that it can sometimes pick up your neighbor’s cell phone conversations.  (boys and their toys!)

4.  Car seat ( preferably two so we don’t have to constantly switch them between our vehicles)

5. Playmat

What colors/themes are you using in the nursery?

We find out next month if we’re having a girl or a boy.  But so far, the theme for both is safari animals.  Colors will be pink, green, and white for a girl and yellow, brown, and tan for a boy.

What are the top 5 baby gear things do you already have or know for sure you want?

1. Cloth diapers. We’re going with Bum Genious all in one, one size fits all. I’m terrified nobody will buy them for the shower, b/c we obviously really need them!

2. Graco Pack N Play. I have a feeling we’ll be using it a lot, we already have a trip planned for when the baby is about 3 months old.

3. Crib. It will be a gift from my grandma.

4. Glider.

5. Changing table. I’m just excited about it b/c I found a really cute one!

What colors/themes are you using in the nursery? 

There will be lots of pink and pigs.
