Baby D Makes Three

just between friends

We went to the just between friends sale this past Thursday. Just between friends is a baby/kids consignment event. It was a little overwhelming:

We were looking for a high chair, 3-6 month jammies, and keeping an open mind about other things we might find. Here is our haul:

We found 8 jammies, 4 crib sheets, 2 hooded towels, 2 bottles, 1 pair of 6-9 month jeans, 1 6-12 month dress, and 1 boppy; all of $47! This is a screaming deal. The extra boppy will be invaluable as I’ve mentioned before. As I type this from my recliner in Cora’s room at 1:25 am, my arms are killing me because I left the boppy downstairs when I came up to bed, and the new one is still drying from being thoroughly washed and sanatized. We will need at least 5 extra crib sheets when we start daycare as the school we’ve chosen changes the sheets every day, and bottles and towels are always good to have around.

We didn’t end up finding a high chair in good condition, but we still have a while before we need it. Overall, I’m very glad we went to the sale, even if we could get similar deals at Once Upon a Child; it was fun! Once Cora gets more interested in toys, I have a feeling it will be even more worth it.

I’ll leave you with this nugget from yesterday’s shopping excursion, although we didn’t buy the glasses because they were a little too big still, they were pretty adorable:

Ah man

I don’t know if there is anything worse for an exhausted, nursing mom than a big spit up at 1:30 am after a 30 minute nursing session while burping baby and realizing we have to start all over again (not to mention we both need new PJs now).

Also, blogging about how great napping was going yesterday seemed to have jinxed me. Cora did not eat or sleep well yesterday at all. Hopefully it was just a one day setback.

We went to a Just Between Friends sale yesterday evening and really scored. Tons of jammies for 3-6 months (we only had four pairs), a couple bottles, a dress and jeans in 6-9 months, a couple hooded bath towels, and an extra boppy. With how many stairs we have its become cumbersome to try to lug it between floors, especially since I’m usually also carrying Cora, my phone, and a cup of water (I keep one kindle upstairs and one on the bottom level for this very reason as well – a great luxury!). I can’t remember if we got anything else (it is 2 am now :P) but I will snap pictures at some point.

Oh, and if the formatting has become weird, its because I’m using the WordPress app on my phone as I can do that one-handed. Modern mommyhood 😛

Time for this munchkin and mommy to go back to bed. Night all.
