baby's first stuff

I'm really excited to share our first items for the baby. The baby's first onesie is from Aunt Katie! Yep, she has the honour of saying that she was the first person to buy something for the baby.

Nuno and I bought this change table from someone on Kijiji last night. We are both really adamant about buying some specific items used. What we've been finding is that most people only need certain baby items for a short period of time and there is a lot of great, barely used items available online. The whole baby industry price gouges on so many things just because they know people create registries and family and friends love to buy for babies. You should see the joy on the Bay (for weddings) and Babies R' Us when you tell them you'd like to set up a registry *ka-ching!* I want to save our friends and family from wasting their money on a $500 glider.

Next week we will hopefully know the gender of our baby which will kick the baby's nursery into high gear. Since the weather forecasts rain all weekend, we hope to sort and empty the guest room to prep for painting. Nuno is starting to think about a wall mural, which won't be one of those cheese-ball ones, but will hopefully turn out really cute. I can't wait to see the nursery come together.
