I really didn't want to buy anything until we got a referral. Since I am the only woman on the planet who hates shopping, that really shouldn't be that hard to do. Or so I thought. It turns out that baby stuff may be the one thing I actually enjoy buying. We're holding off on stuff like clothes until we know who our child is, but are keeping our eyes out for good deals on the bigger stuff. With this being our first child, we have literally nothing, and aren't even sure of what we need. So if we come across things that we love and that are reasonably priced, we'll just buy them.
I did start a mini-shopping spree on Amazon and ordered some books. This child better like books as much as we do!
P.S.: We're already a month into our wait!
