Catchin' Up

It's been quite a while since I've posted about anything other than thrift store purchases, so here's my catchin' up post:
The kiddos have been enjoying the summer and playing in the pool.

As you can see, MZ has updated his summer look. Remember the blue thing?

Yep, he was stylin'.

As for the baby, she's still healthy and huge. At our 20 week ultrasound she measured in the 53rd percentile which according to the doc that extra 3% is quite a bit! It's hard to gauge how big she'll be though, K-lou was 9 lbs and MZ was 6.4! So I don't even have that to go off of =) Right now though I only have 9 weeks left, so I guess it mostly depends on how much fat she puts on before then.
We have almost everything we need for the baby, and I was thinking earlier today how blessed we've been in that regard! Here's how:

Items given to us:
  • Baby clothes
  • Almost new bassinet
  • Play yard (we will be using instead of a crib)
  • 11 one size diapers (won)
  • 24 flatfold diapers
Items purchased at thrift stores (most items were purchased for less than $1, usually for about $.25):
  • Lots of clothes
  • Crib and bassinet sheets
  • Blankets
  • Baby washcloths (to use as cloth wipes)
Items we already had:
  • Carseat
  • Stroller
  • Baby bath
  • Toys and such
In many ways it seems as though we have everything we need, but there are still a few things we need or would be nice to have!

So there you have it, a blog post that is something other than thrift store finds. However, I'm tempted to post a picture of all the stuff we got today ;)

Hey, it's nice to see MZ has updated his look - but still fully clothed I see! And yeah, what do you still need for baby? Can't believe it's getting so close!
