More shopping for baby.....

Just when you think you can't shop anymore..... There is so much stuff to buy for baby. I am looking forward to my showers because then I will know exactly what is left to buy. Hopefully not too much. :)

Baby Benjamin is really active lately. He still prefers to hang out on my right side much to my discomfort. My right foot looks like rising dough on any given day.

I went shopping with my Mother in law this weekend. We picked up the stroller and infant car seat. I can't wait to see them out of the box. The guy at Baby Super tried to convince us to leave with the matching tall dresser to the crib set. I said I had to think about it, but MIL and Brian's grandma think we need it. Go figure. We also left with the cutest little train on train tracks with Benjamin's name.

If I had any doubts before that Ben was going to be spoiled, they are gone now.

I also looked into a glider/rocking chair. Good Lord they are expensive. I thought I could find one I like for about $300. Looks like we will probably spend way over double that. They are extremely comfortable and I do need to buy the matching ottoman for my ridiculously swollen feet.

I ended up registering for a diaper bag at PBK. I don't love it as much as the Kate Spade, but I know I will get over it.

Biggest baby related news this weekend. Restoration Hardware started selling their baby line. I love, love, love it. For those that know me in real life, check out my registery there. I finally made a decision. ;) Unfortuanately the incompetent people at Bananafish Inc. have yet to send me samples after a month long process of emails and phone calls. I'm taking it as a sign that it's not the right bedding for Benjamin.

We celebrated Father's Day today with Brian's family. Benjamin and I got Brian some I love my Daddy socks with a matching hat. He also got his Daddy/himself a Dodger plush ball and bear with security blanket. Not an easy purchase for an Angel fan Mommy.

All in all, it was a good weekend.

A glider is necessary, plus they have good resale value. Or at least they did when my sister sold hers.

It's funny how much you have suddenly embraced the name Ben. :)

You're gonna let Benjamin wear Dodgers stuff?! Way to take one for DH! My hubby and I love the Angels, so maybe we'll have to hook you up with some appropriate baby fan gear. ;o) (Jamers125)
