DH is always giving me a hard time. I LOVE buying blankets. They are my weakness. I don't even know how many I have at this point. But I bought three more on Friday and I think I had 5 or so already . I told him she is a winter baby she NEEDS all these blankets. I don't think he believes me but he lets me buy them anyway. They are so soft and silky and well baby like .

What is something that you are buying tons of or will buy tons of?

Am I the only one who has a strange blanket obsession?

Oh and I am on the hunt for a unicorn. So if someone sees one let me know . "There so FLUFFY! I'm gonna die" Despicable me quote.

I think that it will be blankets for me too...but not because of my obsession. It is my mother's. I had blankets made before I was ever TTC. Now in my home for this baby I have 5 and another 5 at my parent's house. My mother is a quilter so it is half way understandable.

I could collect every single frog stuffed animal out there and still get more. I love stuffed animals.

I totally understand because I have the exact same weakness. Not with blankets, but same idea. Mine is cloth diapers. I went CRAZY buying them.

Lol!!! I LOVE to shop! I wish I could get paid to do it! I could even spend all day window shopping. Now with my anxiety disorder, I do most of it online now.

Oh and my obsession is butterflies! If I ever get pregnant and it is a girl, her room would be butterflies!

WOW Lindsey... I am glad that I don't have the unicorn or blanket obsession... good luck restraining yourself now Jess!!!

I actually never really went crazy buying anything. I went crazy with cloth diapers too, but it was more about obsessively researching all the different kinds, washing techniques, laundry aquatic chemistry LOL... I obsessively researched a lot of stuff actually, baby carriers, sleep problems, feeding problems, breastfeeding, co-sleeping, etc. I am such an information junkie and so analytical, and it was overwhelming for me to feel like I just didn't KNOW all this stuff as a FTM.....

I don't even know that I have an obsession. I was really into doves for a while, because that is what Colm means.

I really do like squishy soft things, like blankies and cloth diapers though. I need to look through my stash and see what is still good

I had the blanket thing with Moose, but then we only used a few of them, and once one in particular became her favorite, she wouldn't use any other one. So, I'm not buying any blankets for this baby. He can use all the other ones. LOL

Ok, so I have this fabric obsession. I will never be able to make all the things I had planned. When I go shopping, it's at the fabric store. I think I've already made a dozen blankets so no help there. I'm beginning to think I should start giving them away.

I think I will become obsessed with everything I know I will buy way too many cloth diapers, then I was looking at slings/carriers and wanted about 6, and I haven't even gotten to clothes or blankets or bibs or hats or BOOKS (that will be a big one for me).... ummmm, I think I need another job
