I wanted to write this post around the Christmas so that my readers could also know what I bought this Christmas season but as you all know I was pregnant at that time so couldn’t write much. Also, there were guest coming at home so got really busy in making arrangements for them, with my husband. Well, not I am back to writing and hope that my readers will enjoy my posts as they used to enjoy earlier. Also, there has already been a great start to my new year since we were blessed with a cute little baby girl whose name we have kept as Alice. Alice is our first baby and is over a month now. We have been really excited and on our toes for managing everything from work to office to home and are making efforts in making arrangements for her so that she feels comfortable at home.
Having said that, I’d like to share with you a few things that we bought this Christmas from our savings. The first and the foremost thing was a Nikon DSLR camera which my husband wanted to buy from a long time and we made sure that we bought that this year because we have been saving for it for long now. We also knew that we were going to expect a boy or a girl sometime around Christmas so we had to save for that as well but the camera was really important because my husband has a great passion about photography. With the camera with us now, we also clicked some great photos of our baby girl and I would be sharing them soon with all you guys.
There were few more important things which we had to buy this Christmas. These were electronic items only and were available at a great discount during the Christmas sale and hence we thought to pick them up quickly. One of the things was a baby monitor and the other was a tablet. I realized that with a baby to take care of, I would not be able to sit on my computer table for long and would need something handy to stay in touch with people on the internet. So buying a tablet was the best option since it would allow me to read my mail and browse sites easily. The baby monitor on the other hand was sort of an investment because we would soon need it and since it was available on sale, we thought we should buy it now.
Apart from that, there were few household items that we bought which are of daily use and were available at sale when you buy in bulk. There were a lot of things that caught our attention online, like a convertible car seat for babies, but we thought it is wise to save money now than to repent later because one never knows how much money is required when you have a baby to take care of. The demands are endless but we have to restrict ourselves at some point with limited funds at the moment.
With so much excitement and happiness, I must tell you that we are blessed with a baby girl. We are really excited and are thanking God for the best gift this Christmas to us. I must tell you that she is really beautiful and looks like an angel. I will be uploading her picture soon on our blog for our audience to see. This is the main reason I haven’t been writing these days but I really felt that I should update my readers with this news so I decided to write a post today.
With so much enthusiasm and eagerness, we are now setting up our home and trying to make sure that we have each and everything our baby needs. Since it is our first baby, we are excited as well as nervous at the same time because on one side, there is a lot of happiness because of her birth but on the other side we need to take care of a lot of things which a newborn needs as well as modify our home in accordance with the baby requirements as per the government. Frankly speaking, we are also thinking about how we will spend our money, which is limited as of now, in buying the new things so that we have at least the basic stuff that is required.
I know that you guys are also very happy to hear this news and wouldn’t mind my absence on the blog for the last couple of weeks. I would really appreciate if you give me your feedback and suggestions on what all things are required when a baby is born in order to have all the stuff that the baby needs. We have also thought of this stuff and I am just writing out some essential things below which have crossed our minds. I hope that you would also give me a lot of suggestions and share your experiences at the same time.
The first and the foremost things to keep the baby cozy and comfortable would be a baby blanket, a small cot, the mattress for the cot and a rocker. Apart from that, we have decided to buy a big pack of diapers and few small towels to wipe and keep the surroundings clean. We were also thinking of buying a double stroller which will help us carry the baby when we are going outside and will also help in future when the baby grows up and we plan for another baby. I have also asked one of my friends to give me a checklist of the vaccinations for the baby so that she stays protected from all the diseases. We would also be going for shopping to buy some infant clothes such as a small top and skirt, a small cap and socks to keep her warm all the time. I am quite excited to see her grow up and can’t wait for the moment when she calls me mommy. I am sure you can see the level of my excitement. Hope you enjoyed this post and would share your suggestions with me.

3. Baby Monitors
The baby monitors have proved to be a blessing to the mothers who were actually worried about their baby sleeping in his/her room. A baby monitor traditionally used to detect the voices that the baby made and used to transmit it to the receiver kept in the parent’s room. Through this method, it was easier for parents to detect what the baby was doing in his room while the parents were there in their own room. The idea of this useful electronic gadget has taken a new dimension with introduction of new technologies encapsulated into these devices which led to invention of video baby monitors or baby cams. These baby cams act like a surveillance camera and monitor the movements of the baby. Most video baby monitors come with a night vision mode which automatically turns on when it is dark. Also some baby monitors come with a two way communication mode so that the caretaker can communicate with the infant while sitting at their own respective places.
