Baby, Baby, Baby

My mom and sister purchased the bedding set for my Christmas presents. As you can see we're going with blue, green, and brown colors with cars, trucks, and airplanes for baby. A few weeks ago, my hairdresser mentioned that she was going to be selling all her baby "supplies." The wheels in my head started spinning as I thought about how much money we could save by purchasing it from her instead of new. Dave and I decided that we would purchase it from her and she set the price at $400. This was almost 60% off the full price of the items. From her, we purchased a stroller, infant car seat (w/three bases), pack-in-play, bassinet, high chair, swing and jumper. She also gave us her baby bath, Bobby, sheets for the bassinet/pack-in-play/crib, and other small things.

On Christmas day, we set up most of the stuff in the living room to check it out. I was SOOOO excited to see it all!

Baby Andrew won't be using the jumper any time soon, but Dave put Reese in for a "jump."
The pack-in-play is pretty spiffy. It has all the bells and whistles, including a music/vibrating function, infant raised bottom, changing station, and canopy with mobile.
The bassinet is my favorite! It is adorably cute! It is hard to tell from the picture, but it is a light green and cream. The base is adjustable and right now we have it at standing height. Underneath it there is a basket to hold blankets/anything else. It has a vibrating/singing mobile. It can be on wheels or rocking base.
The swing is Dave's favorite item. It switches from back and forth to front and back so they can swing or rock. It was the kind that Dave liked the best when we went to Babies R Us, but also, the most expensive kind that we figured we wouldn't be feasible.
Baby Andrew was also a bit spoiled with his Christmas presents. So far he has about ten outfits, three blankets, and a few pairs of adorable socks!
