I just wanted to post a thank you for all your wonderful responses to my blog. :)
As far as things needed for baby..pretty much all basic baby essentials...as listed in my baby registry.
When my parents come down in December, to pick my girls up for their visitation with their father's they'll be bringing my cradle and a bassinet. My cradle was hand crafted and my parents bought it/got it when i was a baby. It's been through my self and my brother and sister, i think a couple of my cousins, as well as my oldest daughter. (couldn't use it with my other children, as it was misplaced in storage for a while). So i'll be able to use it with Kai.
I'd really LOVE for once to have a BRAND NEW crib, a convertible. I've never had a new one for any of my children, or any other 'major' furniture for that matter.(just a side note, i couldn't even afford a crib, for my 2nd daughter, so her bed until about 18months **when we were able to purchase a second hand one** was my pack and play with the bassinet attachment with extra blankets) everything they have is a hand-me-down. not that there's anything wrong with that..but just ONCE i'd love to at least have a new crib of my choosing ya know? I never got to plan out a nursery to the way i wanted it, or coordinating sheets and valances, or dressers and cribs, or painted walls etc. Just ONCE i'd like to be able to be a little bit frivilous with this..especially since for sure it'll be my last.
Anyway.. Again i thank y'all for all your kind words and congrats :)
