The Third Trimester - Preparing for Baby

I am now in the beginning of the last trimester of my pregnancy (I'm 28.3 in the picture)!  I know I am going to miss feeling my little friend moving around in my belly.  This morning Gabe and I watched my belly protrude as the baby pushed out his or her back and bum.  It's amazing that we are only separated by a few layers of skin and muscle. 

I'm curious about what people think about baby accessories.  Gabe and I are pretty simple people, so what are the items that you think are essential for caring for a newborn baby?  In other words, if you were stranded on a desert island, what three things would you take with you for the baby? 


  1. My essential newborn things would be boobs (check!), muslin blankets (aden & anais, luna lullaby, or koala kuddles- they're all great), a good carrier (my favorite was the baby k'tan), and kimono onesies.
    Lookin' good, Emilie!

  2. Ahhhhh!!! I can't believe how much bigger your belly suddenly got! I was just going to email you for an updated belly pic, too. You make such a gorgeous pregnant woman!
