I like to shop. But I can't do that much these days. Except online. The good part about shopping online is that it takes more commitment to buy something. At least for me, it seems more complicated online than just handing a credit card to a nice clerk in a store. So it slows down my shopping.
Which is good. Because I have quite a few things that I want! All baby-related, of course. Here's my current To-Get list.

Lucky me, I get to buy a new infant car seat for this baby! (Car seats expire, in general, after 6 years.) I'm in love with this great argyle pattern from Graco.

I'm also very excited to get a car seat "canopy". (I love the fabric on this one pictured) I've always just thrown a blanket over the top of my car seat to give my baby some dark or privacy or warmth, but these ones that strap or tie on are great! Genius! (And, as a bonus, I think I've convinced my Mom or sister to make one for me!)
Then there's these nursing covers that actually have a wire in them of some sort so that poor baby isn't quite so closed in, I can see him while he's nursing, he can see me, fresh air circulates, and he can't just pull the blanket off my shoulder - keeping my more modest.

And I've never had a great wrap or sling or anything like that that really worked for me. I think these Moby Wraps might be just the answer. It's basically just a long piece of fabric that you use to literally tie your baby to your chest.
And, last but not least, I want a stroller frame. No more lugging around a huge stroller. If I had one of these I could just pull out this small thing and snap the car seat right into it. It's lighter, smaller, and easier than a whole huge stroller.

So, that's it. Just a few things, right? The only thing that's really necessary is the car seat. But hey, a girl can dream, right?

yes, don't you order a car seat cover. I saw that Target has very cute and cheap nursing covers right there in the store--not that you can stroll on by, but probably cheaper than etsy or whatever.

Just my opinion - but I have loved my Moby Wrap. I even used it at the end of the school year when I went to a track meet for Soren! You have to practice tying it and practice carrying baby around the house in it, but it's fabulous. Caroline spent a lot of time in hers between 4 months (when I bought it) and 10 months.

She's still able to get into it when I need her to and it beats lugging a stroller around at times.
