To All My Momma Friends
As most of you know I am going to be a new Mom. It still hasn't sunk in yet but I know that she will be here soon enough. As we get closer to the due date I am starting to panic a little due to the fact that I only have a crib and some clothes bought for her. My problem is there is so much out there. Now, I am not the type of person who has to have everything but I know there are things that I will need and must have. That is where all of you come in. My question is What are your favorites and something you couldn't live without? You know favorite brands of diapers, best kind of rocking chair, swings, toys, etc. things like that. I already have the carseat and stroller chosen. But other than that I am really at a loss.
So to all my Momma friends please help me out. I would love your advice and your list of must have's. It will be much appreciated.

Happy New Year!!
Not that I am counting but I have 13 weeks to go until we welcome this sweet little baby into our family. I haven't posted anything for awhile since we have been so busy with the holidays. Hopefully now that it is a bit slower I will find the time. We did have a wonderful Christmas. Jim, his Mom and I were able to travel to Las Vegas the weekend before Christmas to visit our sister in law Katie and our neice Samantha. It was such a good visit and we all had a really good time. Jim's brother Stephen passed away 1 year ago on Christmas Eve so it was a great time to go visit and to remember him. Samantha (Steve's daughter) is 2 1/2 and such a cutie. She has the sweetest little personality and reminds us so much of Stephen. We are thankful for the Holidays and especially the time we have to be with our friends and family. This year was good to spend time with family and celebrate the birth of our Savior and also to remember the life of our brother Stephen.
Happy New Year to all!
