I've been stocking up on baby necessities and equipment. All the baby stuff had been purged from the house since this was an unexpected surprise. Let's see...
a beautiful bassinet found at a yard sale...check
a gently used infant car seat (in pink) bought from a friend...check
new-looking clothes from consignment shops and a generous friend...check
a hand-me-down baby bath tub...check
a borrowed infant seat...check
a hardly-used baby swing from a yard sale...check
a brand-new minivan that will actually hold FIVE car seats and/or boosters...CHECK!
Now, what have I forgotten?
A name for this sweet bundle-of-joy?
Well, as a matter of fact, she has one!
Our baby girl will be...
Ellen Amanda Woodall!
She is named after a great-grandmother on my dad's side (Ellen), and my mom (Amanda).
Now, I've got to start stocking up on diapers and wipes!
