To buy -
infant car seat
(still undecided if and what kind - I already have a Radian, a Marathon and a Myride - so we may end up just using one of those - except it will be winter and having baby in a infant will be so much cozier - oh the thoughts that go through my head)
double stroller - city select
bassinet
big boy bed for Jack
breast pump
more fitteds
2 or 3 lil joey's


TO DO
move around bedrooms
knit all the yarn I have ordered for the baby
sew all the pieces I have planned (started this already today)

Here is a rough idea of what I can think of atm. This list will greatly change depending on how many little beans are in there!

To Do:
Find some crochet projects (any suggestions are welcomed!)
Get baby clothes from one of my sil's, depending on gender. One has boys clothes, one has the girls. I actually just shipped boys stuff back to sil she is due in May.
Pull out all of Gavin's baby stuff we packed away- swing, bouncer, car seat, pump, boppy pillow
Paint nursery
Clean out closet in nursery :yuck: WTH will I put all that stuff?!
Dh will build a dresser

To Buy:
Either a crib or a bed for Gavin- suggestions? He will be 2 before baby is born.
Double stroller
LOVE being able to buy cd's on Amazon- not that I need any, but swagbucks will help with that!

To do/To buy:
- somehow make my 1200sq ft. house turn into a 1600sq ft house with an extra bedroom. :giggle2:
- get DS1 a big boy bed and pass crib onto newbie, or get newbie a crib and convert DS1's crib into toddler bed
- move DS2 into room with DS1 and get them on the same sleep schedule - this is a big goal for me!!!
- deep clean house and purge anything we do not need
- clean infant items (vibrating chair, swing, exerciser, p&p sheets, ect.)
- buy minimal amount of clothes if this LO is a girl, if it's a boy we are set :thumbsup:
- if this is a girl I will be selling all our outgrown boy clothes on DS, ebay and craigslist as this will be our last baby
- have family/friends get us a small pack of disposables when newbie is born because I've decided to use them for the first couple months because I could have 3 in diapers and just don't have enough BGEs for that.

Since I have a 2yo and 6mo I really don't need much. :)

To Buy:
Maternity clothes - because I sold mine, thinking DS3 would be our last baby :banghead:
Newborn/small diapers - because I sold all mine as DS3 outgrew them :banghead:
Wrap or ring sling - because, once again, sold all mine :banghead:
Baby swing - you guessed it, I sold it after DS3 outgrew it :banghead:
A new minivan! Our Kia Sorento just won't do four carseats, LOL.

To Do:
finish PLing DS2
purge all our extra stuff
finish all the random household and yard projects
get DS3 into a toddler bed (probably around 14-15m, like his brothers)
come to terms with having 4 kids, ages 5 and under :giggle:

My lists aren't huge, I'm pretty much a minimalist when it comes to babies :).

This is me, too! DH was done having kids. I still wanted more, but figured I wouldn't win that battle, so I gave away all the baby stuff. Actually, I just freecycled our crib about 3 weeks ago!
