If I had to pick one thing...that we probably won't be able to would be a King size bed. We bedshare and it would be nice to have that extra space. But I don't even know if that will fit in our new place or not. On the practical side....I would love a woven wrap but I will only see about that after the carseat and cloths are shopped for (if this is a girl we will need new cloths).

I got into my son's newborn to 6 month size box yesterday but I am feeling a bit funny asking DH to bring it upstairs because I am only 19w 4d. I am more curious as to what I have so I know what I need and what really should have been thrown out.

So am I nesting early?
I know pretty well what we have from DS...but that is b/c I just got done organizing and packing all of it less than six months ago (when we moved). I have them all washed, folded, and in nice organized tubs by size. I am sort of a nut when it comes to keeping that stuff nice and neat. MOST of his stuff is VERY "boy" and couldn't really be used for a girl. But things like pants/jeans can easily swap for a girl so that will be good.

I will be more interested in going through our cloth to see what I want/need to replace. I know I need more covers for the under crawling age range. We never had enough with DS so I was always hand washing the covers throughout the day. And I have some really cheap pockets I want to get rid of and replace with new Sunbabies or perhaps some of my own creation.

I will be going through that stuff right when find out so that I can put word out to family what we want/need. If it is a boy I am okay with using all DS's stuff since it is not "out of style" and all of it held up really well with no stains. We have a GN swing/moby/ergo/etc so I don't have to replace that stuff. We do want a new pack-n-play though...DS spilled water in his and the cardboard support in the bottom is all warped.
