I have a list of things/projects to do before the baby arrives. My husband finalizes his travel schedule for work so that he can stay home for an extended period of time. I plan to make some last minute shopping this week for the baby. On top of that, we're still working on little projects here and there for the nursery. I am happy to say that things are starting to come together. Anyway, here are some of my latest purchases for the baby.
I've always wanted to nurse my baby but couldn't do it with my first one. This time, I am determined to try again. After doing extensive research online, I decided to purchase the Medela Pump-in-Style Advanced On-the-go Tote. I am not the stay-at-home mom type and I don't plan to be one. I have looked into several options and the on-the-go tote seems like a good choice for working mothers. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that this pump will be put to good use.
I bought the Longchamp Planetes large tote last week and plan to use it as a diaper bag. I just can't see myself carrying a traditional diaper bag. I was debating between 2 sizes but decided to go with the large one. There are so many things that I love about this bag. It's lightweight but extremely durable. It's also waterproof and the material is so easy to clean. It has everything that I am looking for in a diaper bag. If you plan to use this bag as a diaper bag, an organizer is a must. A purse organizer makes it so easy to look for stuff and also gives the bag a little more structure.
I used the Nikon 50mm 1.8 lens for most of my blog photos. Since I found out I was pregnant, I wanted to upgrade to a better prime lens. My dream lens would be the Nikon 85mm f1.4G but I am not ready to spend over 1K on a lens yet. I spent weeks researching online and ended up with the Nikon 50mm 1.4G. It seems like one of the best options for a professional-grade lens. It's great for those who need a high quality lens for everyday photography. You can read all about this lens here. I haven't had time to play with it yet but am very anxious to do so. I know my next shoot will be of my little Madelyn!
