Thumbs up Received our first baby gift today

I've been a bit superstitious (even thought I'm not AT ALL superstitious in general) about buying things for this baby, talking about names, or really admitting that it's even happening since we lost our last 5 pregnancies.

But we got a package in the mail today from the in-laws for our anniversary. There was the usual personal check, candy, crayons/coloring books for the girls, and then there was a little package labeled for the baby. It was a comfy sleeper--gender neutral but leaning toward boy, and two gum cigars (one pink/one blue). So now that the "seal has been broken" maybe we'll start talking names and stuff.
 


Have you bought/received anything for your baby yet???

No, nothing yet. I am not sure we will be buying anything, though. I can't think of anything we need, and we are on a buy only what need budget!

We definitely know ALL ABOUT budgeting!! We teach Financial Peace University at our church so we HAVE to budget or we'd have 50+ families on our tails!
 


There are a few things I'd like to get--a high chair (we couldn't use one in our old house because the place was too small), new crib sheets, new burp cloths, new bibs, etc. And if this little person is a boy, we'll be in need of boy clothes because we only have pink things!

How wonderful and thoughtful of your inlaws! I think I've only seen 1 or 2 gender neutral outfits before. They all look boy to me if they aren't pink/lavender with flowers and bows

Deanna - I love my Baby Trend High Chair (just some FYI - we can discuss in detail later). I was in baby Gap on vacation and there was an adorable little dress for 5.97. Not that I know what I am having, but I know I could always sell it on Ebay or use it as a baby gift.
