This cute Graco travel system is curtesy of my sweet Grandma Hyer who I have always adored. I liked this one because it has boy colors but the pattern is cute for both girls and boys.
My stylish little sis. got me my petunia pickle bottom diaper bag that I have been swooning over. She totally surprised me with it at my baby shower. And yes, she is so cool that she even filled the bag with awesome baby toys and the cutest ralph lauren romper I've ever seen.
Having a good, comfortable chair to rock and feed my baby in was very important to me. It was one of the things I cared most about. However, I'm picky. It needed to be the right size for me since I'm short. That was harder than I thought - my feet dangled off the ground in most of them which wouldn't be conducive to rocking. I also wanted a very dark brown and either leather or vinyl chair (that way I could easily wipe up any diaper blowouts or spit-up that happened on the chair). When my dad realized how much I was struggling to find a chair in my price range, he graciously decided to buy me the perfect chair for my birthday. Note: this is not the actual chair, I couldn't find a picture of my chair but it looks similar to this one.
Even though I'm a little embarrassed to put this gift up, I'm very grateful for it. I want my baby to be able to take a bottle but I also want to give him all the benefits of breast milk so having this top of the line medela electric double breast pump will be a huge blessing. Thanks mom for the great gift that will hopefully allow for me and Ethan to have a date night every once in awhile! Since my mom is also giving us a dresser, the only big purchase Ethan and I have left is the crib.
I also have to thank my awesome in-laws, extended family, and friends for the wonderful baby shower gifts. (Utah friends: your thank-you cards are coming soon). Trey's grandma Thomas has already spoiled him with adorable clothes, pajamas, shoes, bassinet, and baby bath. He is one lucky boy and I am one lucky momma. Thanks again!
