This pregnancy is already half way over. It’s going by so fast. It went by fast with Finn after 20 weeks so if this one starts going any faster I don’t know what I’ll do! We found out recently that baby is a boy. We are super excited about that. Now I feel like I can start buying things and getting things ready for his arrival.
One of the first things on my list to buy is a ring sling. I haven’t tried one yet but I’ve read they are so great for newborns. I had a Moby Wrap with Finn and I hated it. Well, we both hated it. I think I’ve decided on a Tula ring sling. Isn’t it pretty? I really want something easy to use and something I’m able to nurse in. I’ve had two Tula carriers with Finn and I love them so much. That’s the toddler Tula in the first picture up there. I also need to get a few newborn diaper covers and probably start a one size diaper stash for this little one. I can’t help myself when it comes to diapers!
We’ve discussed names but nothing is decided yet. We had Finn’s name picked out so early. We’re definitely having more trouble with it this time around. I don’t want anything too popular but I also don’t want anything strange or made up sounding. Maybe my standards are too high?
I’m pretty anxious about having two children so young. I keep telling myself that people do it all the time so I can too. Finn was a hard baby. He was what you a high needs baby from the start. It’s hard for me to imagine one of those calm and content babies, but of course this one will have a different personality. The universe can’t give us two colicky babies, right? RIGHT? Either way we will get through it! At least I have first-hand experience that things do indeed get easier.
