The goods



Our baby's new crib! Isn't it pretty? Well, it could use a mattress and some color, but we really like it. We bought the floor model and disassembled it at the store, and then couldn't fit the backboard into the car! I made an "emergency" call to a friend with an SUV and went to pick it up the next door. As a bonus, I got to have coffee and a huge, gooey cinamon roll with a friend - yay for us!

On Sunday (my first mother's day as an expectant mom!) we bought a Pack n' Play at Target for $30, baby! It had been an online order that was returned to the store unopened. It is missing the bells-and-whistles, like a canopy and a changing pad, but as I said, it was $30!

You might think that a couple who have been longing for a child for over 3 years would spare no expense for their baby. But, I'm cheap! Dad, aren't you pleased? Saving $$ is fun!

May I also suggest blankets?

And a Suzy's Zoo frame with a picture of Meeko in it? Meeko might not get to meet the baby, but baby should definitely know about Meeko!

So excited for you, Amy!
