I love shopping...



But I am definitely out of my element here. As our babies continue to grow in the lovely Nickole's belly, I find myself sneaking onto the internet to see what's out there in the world of baby. Note to self - start something, ANYTHING, baby and make an absolute fortune.

Here is what I've discovered so far. Necessities range from regular expensive to holy crap expensive, and there's not a whole lot in between. And I probably don't need to mention that I'm drawn to the most expensive because that's just how I roll. The first stroller I liked was $595... I thought that was the most expensive one, or at least it must be close to the most expensive one right? No, it's fairly standard actually...middle of the road. I'm wondering if I can get a "stroller loan", similar to how one gets a car loan. And one crib I clicked on that looked very decent and not really that unlike the other three hundred I viewed was $5,500. That's when I started to sweat. Thankfully I have seen much more reasonable cribs...because for a second there I thought they all cost that much. I thought well if that's the case they can share a crib until they are 13. Infant car seats that apparently click in and out of everything - that will run you another $400... oh and don't forget to double everything!

We can easily drop a few grand in the next little while. You think I'm complaining don't you? I'm not, I'm excited! These are not purchases I need to justify, like a 3rd pair of strappy wedges (which I really do need by the way)...these are mandatory things my babies need.

And what baby wants, baby gets.

Here is a picture of a room I fell in love with - we're trying to create a cute gender neutral space for our babies, because their sexes will be a surprise for everyone...us included. I just love the look and I think we can pull it together nicely.

I'm so excited for you all!! That nursery theme looks great! I am so jealous you are not finding out the sexes, I wanted to do that with Evan, but got outvoted!!

You are so blessed to be having twins, enjoy every minute of it, twice the stuff is twice the fun!

How exciting! I love the decor that you are thinking of; be careful of the light colors, however. Babies have a tendency to make lovely off-color messes on light cloth! (or at least mine did!!) Yay for shopping for your babies!!

Baby things can get very expensive so it`s a good idea to start looking soon for good deals. I love the picture of the room.. It`s very nice. Have fun :)

Some people love shopping for themselves, and others prefer to shop for their loved ones. This is definitely one great example! Of course, you're thinking 'bout your baby's room. Green is actually a neutral color. It's pleasant to the eye, and that's why it's perfect for an infant's room. ;)
