Since we can't get started on the nursery until renovations are completed- and started, I have only been able to highlight the things I love and will have to wait to purchase them until the new year.
However there are a few products which I will be buying from the States. These items all have to be purchased before Christmas so that my sweet sister in law and her husband can bring them back for me when they visit family in December.
One product which I have purchased and can't wait to receive is my diaper bag.
I have a large bag right now and have a ton in it so I knew my diaper bag needed to be as least as large as my normal purse. I also am one of those people who does try to look good and cute everyday, although I will admit to getting more lax about this as I have aged and gotten really sick of feeling cold in the winter. Unfortunately my favorite items in terms of looking good and being easy- summer dresses, nice tank and skinny jeans- just do not cut it when it gets cold here. Plus I have been a bit dismayed to find out that even my tights are too tight now due to the lovely little Theodor causing my stomach to expand! I have actually cut the waistbands on some so that they don't pinch. Thankfully my dresses still cover the bump as I still feel like 5 months is just so early to start having to wear maternity tops! I don't want to buy a whole new wardrobe yet!
But I am getting off track. Mainly I just am trying to say that while it was important that my diaper bag be highly functional it was also pretty darn important that it be cute. So this is what I chose.
The skip hop studio tote in champagne.
The reviews I have heard from other mothers and on Amazon were great and I can't wait to finally be able to use it!
