new toys

james and i have been blessed by so many people throughout the pregnancy emotionally and with thoughtful gifts. our relatives are more excited and generous than i ever imagined, and now we have a few new toys to play with before the baby arrives.

the first, a sony handycam (dcr-sr45) from my awesome sister:

i do not know much about videocameras, but the nice thing about this one is that it is easy to operate, has 30gb of internal memory, transfers videos directly to your computer (hopefully i'll start posting some soon), and has a sweet touch screen that makes it easy to review footage. i am so excited to take footage of our little one with this!!!
next, a super comfy glider & ottoman from toys 'r us from my mother in law:

i've decided to put this in our living room because that is where we plan do spend the most time with the baby and do the most nursing. plus it will be nice to have extra seating for guests.

my inlaws also went together and got us a classy safety 1st carseat:

we plan to use this for all of our children, so i'm glad we have a new, soft, reliable seat for our baby. it is forward and rear-facing and adjusts to 4 different sizes, so that is a big plus.

last but not least, a baby einstein playard from my mother in law's friends and an arm's reach co-sleeper from my mom:

i think we're going to put the co-sleeper in our room so the baby can sleep downstairs with us for the first few months and put the playard in the living room. i still can't believe it's less than 3 months until the baby will be here, ahh!! can't wait.

i've been polling our friends for names (we still have no idea what we're naming little kehrli), and i'll post the results soon... until then, love you all! go florida!
