Christina's Journal/Planner
This won't be so much of a journal as a place to plan, keep info, etc.

Comments welcome!

Baby Names

Grace (more as a middle name)

(middle name will be Victor, after DH)

Re: Christina's Journal/Planner
Things we need

~ infant carseat, Graco (has to snap into the stroller we already own)
~ muslin swaddling blankets for summer
~ a few newborn sized su-su's
~ a new monitor so DS's can stay in his room (maybe video monitor?)

Meals I can make in advance and freeze for first month post-partum (so me and DH don't starve or break the bank on takeout like last time!)

~ lasagna
~ shepherd's pie
~ meatloaf
~ meatballs
~ veggie pasta sauce
~ macaroni casserole
~ make-ahead freezer biscuits (from Best of Bridge)

Edited to add to planning!

I am partial to Abigail LOL!

I also like the name Jacob:)

Are you thinking boy or girl???

As for the car seat - I like the snug ride ones by Graco (they have a memory foam layer for padding). We are re-using Connor's car seat as we just switched him to a bigger seat mid Sept:) His is a red and black Graco Snug Ride.

Re: Christina's Journal/Planner
Candace, if my DS had been a girl, he would have been Audrey Grace, that was our final girl choice the first time, and DH still considers it his first pick this time!!

Kimberly, I'm also kind of partial to Jacob but I'm afraid friends will say it was a Twilight thing, lol (ok, confession time, I'm a 33y.o. who enjoys twilight! There, I said it!) But it was actually on our list last time before the Twilight madness :lol:

And yep, the Snug Ride is the one I'm most likely to get!

Haha... I like Izabella, and that was pre-twilight (Isabella = Bella) too... but now I just like it more ;-)

Re: Christina's Journal/Planner
Video monitors are AMAZING. We had one with ds1 and we could always tell easily whether he was just kinda wimpering in his sleep or starting to wake up. And sometimes he would just stand up without making a peep and we could get to him before he started to cry! Highly recommended!

Re: Christina's Journal/Planner
Thanks for the recommendation! I'm really thinking about it, but kept thinking it might be a silly thing to splurge on...

Thanks for the recommendation! I'm really thinking about it, but kept thinking it might be a silly thing to splurge on... so it's good to hear someone that really liked it!
