Baby Woes

Yesterday I went to Babies R Us with my mom and sister and we had a grand ole time looking at all the wonderful products. So many adorable things. From car seats to bouncers to changing tables. Did you know changing tables could be cute? I didn't. But just go to Babies R Us and be swept away by the adorableness.

Don't even get me started on the the clothes they have there. I mean I could spend more on this little girls wardrobe than I have ever spent on mine... Luckily Grandma Davis is already on top of spoiling Baby Girl. Yay Grandmas!

But the thing is all of the cuteness comes at a price... A really large, gut wrenching, awfully expensive price. It's depressing really. I just want all the cute baby things. Is that really too much to ask?

Here is my wish list so far... I will list the items and then give you a grand total... and then we can cry together, okay? Okay.

Baby Trend Travel system is $213.99 on amazon. We love this stroller because of the big bicycle wheels and, the great turning ability and the fact that it's a jogging stroller means that it maneuvers wonderfully over all different kinds of terrain. I also love the color. Not too girly, not too boyish. Perfect for all our kids. Love it. Also the car seat that comes with it has the awesome triangle handle that makes carrying the baby so so easy and comfortable. This is the stroller we will get no matter what. 

I love this bouncer. It's the Fisher Price Rainforest Jumperoo. And it's $89.00 on amazon. It's so cute and colorful and has so many fun little toys attached to it. I also like that it is open on the bottom and they can just bounce bounce bounce! I love how it looks so much better than the ones that are plastic all on the bottom, ya know. 

This is the S1 Pack 'N Play by Safety 1st. This one is from Babies R Us and its $129.89. This things that I like the best about this is it's bassinet feature. I love that there is a removable little rocker that i can carry around where ever I am and the baby can be super comfy. I also love the little changing area attached to side so that in the middle of the night, i can easily pick her up and change her without running around the room. and that's where the side little organizational part comes in super handy. I just really love it. 

I don't even know if i can talk about this chair without getting sad. I love this glider so so much. It glides and swivels around 360 degrees which makes getting up with a sleeping babe in your arms so much easier. This beautiful glider is from Potter Barn kids... and are you ready for the price of this bad boy? oh man. the chair alone is $849. and then to get the matching foot ottoman is an extra $399... see why i want to cry? $1248 for a chair for my baby to spit up in... trust me, i understand how insane it is. But it also doesn't stop me from checking the vending machines for extra change to try and save up for this beautiful masterpiece. 

This is the bedding I am currently looking at, but it could change in the next few months. I know i do want to use the colors grey and purple. I love that it isn't overly girly. I've never been into frilly pink baby girl stuff. So I think a soft purple is the perfect option. This bedding set from Babies R Us is $189.99. I know that it can be way cheaper, but in a perfect world, where I could get everything I want, this is what I would choose. 

I love the look of a smile white crib. I like this one from Wal-Mart. It's pretty cheap compared to everything else. This is probably the least stressful purchase we will have to make. It costs $149.98. I think it will look so great with purple and grey bedding.

This is my favorite swing. Soft neutrals, pretty melodies and different swing settings. I love that you can rock side to side or back to front. I found this on amazon and it costs $139.00

Well there you have it. Okay, are you ready for the grand total?


Good Heavens.

Now, before y'all start going crazy and saying how dumb I am and whatnot let me say that by no means do we plan on buying all of these things brand new. I am aware that craigslist and goodwill and DI and garage sales and amazing places to find baby items at the fraction at the cost. And that gives me hope that our baby won't have to sleep on the ground and be pushed around in a $15 baby doll stroller. haha This is just my dream baby wish list :)

Anyways I am off to look at nursery boards on Pinterest and do more research on baby bottles and breast pumps. Life of a first time mom. Glamorous I tell ya ;)

  1. My oldest slept in a a little travel box thingy on the floor for...I'm a little embarrassed to say how long. It was actually kind of awesome. We're ghetto like that. But my sister-in-law has that swing and loved it. And I'm dying for a decent double stroller so...yeah. Baby wishlists. It never ends.
