David and I had received gift cards (and money) from so many generous friends and family members when Clementine was born. I've been spending slowly and wisely.
I wanted them spent on something that would last (unlike diapers or formula).
*Bottles, bowls and spoons
*Girly-girl bath towels and wash rags
*A Bumbo baby seat and that Baby Einstein music/sounds machine in her crib
The other day I was trying to get dressed and then make our bed but little Clementine was not cooperating. So I put her Bumbo seat in her crib. I think she liked it :)
Plus, she was able to keep an eye on me! (Isn't that a cute picture?)
* Guardian Angel framed print - I had returned a duplicate baptismal gift and paid the difference for the Guardian Angel print hanging above her crib.
* Play mat
* And one total splurge :)
I saw this cute, baby beach wrap in Pottery Barn Baby and had her name monogrammed on it!
It has a hood and fits up through 3T. She'll be able to wear it for a few years. (Nope, I haven't had her in the sun yet.)
* My mom lent me her old baby saucer that the other grandchildren had used. Clementine LOVES it. Thank you, Grammy! BTW, I cannot believe how much the saucers/baby seats cost these days. Ridiculous!
* I had given away our old baby monitors. That person still had them and sent them back to us :)
So we are doing pretty good keeping things simple and practical; so very appreciative of the generosity.
I still cannot get over how quickly time is passing!
