I haven't had to buy pretty much anything for this little guy as of yet. People have given us so many things that I am SO thankful for. It has saved us so much money!
So far we have recieved
Crib and changing table-crib was recalled, took it to walmart and got a gift card which we used and got his pack and play and some bottles, and the kids picked out a couple cute toys for him
There's the changing table that we got to keep.


The pack and play/bassinet we got for him. He'll be in this until he is sleeping through the night or so.


The swing I scored off of craigslist for free. It's the kind I wanted with AJ but never got. It's in PERFECT condition and plugs into the wall


Another friend/neighbor gave us this excersaucer and a couple toys for him


My friend is giving us a bumbo seat, jumperoo, bouncy seat and baby bath tub tomorrow, we have to go pick it up and hubby is off tomorrow afternoon so we're going then.

Another friend gave us some cute 3-6 month clothes that her son outgrew.

We got an infant carseat from a friend. She used it for like 4 months with her daughter and it was never in an accident and I trust her so we'll be using that. It's sage green and cream plaid and very unisex. (and doesn't expire til 2012)

Oh and a friend is supposed to be giving us a stroller as well. So hopefully that will work out and save us even more $$.
Other than getting him diapers, clothes, wipes we're set for the little guy. At least I think so. I need to get him a highchair eventually but I'm not rushing it.
My very best friend is throwing me a shower in May so I'm sure I'll get clothes and things for him then too. I'm so blessed and so thankful to have such wonderful friends/neighbors. I never got hand me downs with either one of my other 2. I've always been the one to hand things down so it's kinda nice to be on the receiving end!

I'm ALWAYS on craigslist. That and freecycle. Mostly giving things away or selling them. But occasionally I'll score something good.
My friend swears this is how karma works. I gave away everything from AJ. Didn't sell it, just gave it away. She swears this is what I get for my "good deeds"
either way I am so grateful and when I am done with the things they will get passed on to someone else

Wow that is great! The only person we know with baby stuff is my BIL and SIL, but they are pregnant also, so I won't be getting anything!
