I Guess This Means I'm Nesting?

This is the start of the stash I am building for baby Charlotte. A few cozy wraps, stuffed animals, a tiny knit hat that never really fit Alex, a nursing cover, lovey blankets and more. Not much for right now, but newborns don't really need that much.

I'm twenty three weeks as of tomorrow and finally this whole we're going to have another baby business is sinking in and feeling like it is actually going to happen.

Love all of this fun stuff! I am just on my 23 week with my daughter also! My due date is Dec. 18th, when is yours?! I can't stop buying cute little clothes and things for her nursery!

How odd. I just hit 23 weeks today yet my EDD is the 10th.

As for stuff we haven't actually gotten much yet. My inlaw family is throwing me a shower when we visit around labor day and I want to see what we get. A friend is donating her daughters Dec baby clothes to us yeah! We were given lots of really great hand me downs and some new stuff for Alex and didn't have to buy a stitch of clothing for her until around 18m. It was great. None of this in the picture was bought for Charlotte but are left from her big sis.

We got a wonderful Arm's Reach mini cosleeper basinette off of Craigslist that I am now storing the gear in. It will be perfect for the first 4 to 6 months and we got it for a song. I'm totally bargain hunting and taking it slow. I don't think newborns need much and they outgrow those newborn outfits fast!

I'm having weird cravings though. Not for food mind you, but for stuff that I don't typically want. Like I'm lusting after this one stroller even though I hate using strollers. I do plan on getting a City Mini in the Spring for emergencies since I borrowed one last year and it was the first stroller I actually liked using. But I don't typically use them so this desire is very odd.

I'm also really itching to get that big carseat purchase taken care of even though we have plenty of time.

Enjoy your pregnancy! How exciting.

I am at the very beginning of my 23rd week so maybe that is why our due dates are a little spread a part!

This is my husband's and my first child so we are kind of at a loss as to what to get! We just registered and are hoping we registered for the right items!

Going to check out this City Mini stroller you mentioned...I have no clue what stroller to get yet!
