I forget everything.

So I know I've had three kids, but each time I have a newborn I have to re-learn how to do it. I just plain forget. I've gotten rid of almost all of my baby stuff since Henry for downsizing reasons and also because of the fact that most of them were either broken or disgusting after the use of three rather energetic boys.

So here is my question? What baby items do you love or do your friends love or do you wish you had. Anything...strollers, toys, gadgets, cool ways to organize, or simplify. I am going to do some garage saleing this summer to re-stock on my baby stuff and want to have an eye open for useful stuff. month until I find out if it is a boy or girl. I am convinced it is a boy. Sammy is already hugging my belly and saying, "I'm hugging my sister." Most people seem to think it is a girl. Anyone have a hunch?

Best mobile and white noise machine ever:

amazon mom for all my diapers and wipes, cheaper than costco (not an item but a tip in case you aren't using them already). There is a link on my blog.

I can't wait for your bundle and would love to see what kind of beauty of a girl you two can make. blondie, blue eyed.....starry eye surprise. Cannot wait....hurry up

as a sidenote...that Henry sure looks a lot like Michael. Not sure if its just the chub or what...but there is definitely a resemblance. =) Wub him

i would say 49.5% chance it's a boy, 49.5% it's a girl, and 1% it's some variation of hermaphrodite.

I think it's smart to convince yourself it's a boy cause then you'll be excited you called it! :o) I, however, hope it's a girl. You and Sam have good genes (mostly you) and I think some little Kim running around would balance out those three rather energetic boys. :o) I can't wait to meet him or her!

Listen, I die every second because I don't live next door to you!!!

I don't even want to guess if it's a boy or a girl because I want to be right and I'm too nervous.

You know what you should get, this:

Bonnie said she used it with both babies. She said she feels it really worked on Eva... could be a good gig.

See you in a month!

Stanno and I are wondering how things are going in your neck of the woods with all of the tornado action going on over there. Keep us posted!

I swear by hiking backpacks. From about four months until they walk, I wear my babies on my back so I can cook and clean in peace. The wraps are intimidating to me and not that great once they're big; the backpacks put the weight on your hips, which you really need when they get heavy. Congrats on having a girl. When I had my nathanael--my first boy--I was so surprised because I subconsciously felt like all David and I could make was girls.
