Change in Our House

When Baby C first came home, we didn't have anything. Well, we had a few outfits, blankets, wipes, and a carseat combo, but nothing compared to what we needed. We also had the diapers, formula, dry wipes, soothies, etc... that the hospital had provided. but, as soon as we got home and broke the news, our family started bringing us things.
For the first couple of weeks, our dining room table was Baby C's changing table. We found a huge box of wipe refills at W.ally World for $8. I never realized before how many wipes that we would need. At least the dining room table got used!
I have always thought that my kitchen was small, but now I know it's really small. I had to rearrange some of the cabinets to hold her feeding supplies. I am not sure I am leaving it how it currently is, but it will work for the time being. My sister C brought us her monitor system, play yard and bouncy seat the night Baby C came home. They have all come in vary handy! She is still sleeping in the play yard.
I never realized how many bottles that we would need. My sister and some of my coworkers also provided us with some bottles to use. We ended up buying some more ourselves. I thnk that we can buy stock in nipples. And, who knew that there are some many chocies?
I am so glad that we finally have someone to use our guest bathroom~ I guess that you can now call it Baby C's bathroom. We got the shef from W.ally W.orld for $15. I was looking for something with doors, but everything was so costly. That shelf will work for now.

I had found a dresser that I thought would double as changing table at I.KEA, but when we got there it wasn't the right color. I wanted white and it was off white. But, on the way out we spotted this for our living room. For the first week, our kitchen counter was Baby C's dresser and then this shelf was her dresser for another week. Now, I just need to find bins that fit! We plan to use this for pictures and decor, but mostly for toys.

It's amazing how much our house has changed... but of course, we don't mind at all!
