Baby Watch

Since we are all anticipating the birth of ME, let’s talk all things BABY!

  1. What date do you think ME will be born? Let’s start a baby ME pool – each person can comment on this post a day & time to see who is closest to her birthday! (Reminder: ME is due March 4. AmberRose’s grandmother’s birthday is February 28.)
  2. Do you have a nursery in your Webkinz house? Share a link in the comments with a picture of your Webkinz nursery.
  3.  Give AmberRose some parenting advice or recommend a product. What do you wish you had known as a first time mom? Do you have any words of wisdom for AmberRose?

    Good morning everyone!

    I am going to guess Feb. 28 at 8:38 am

    As for advice to AmberRose about motherhood. Parenting is hard and has challenges and blessings at every stage. You can gush or vent to us any time! The worst critics of mothers are often other mothers. Ignore them. Follow your instincts! ♥

    too funny as i was thinking of something like this!

    i am off to an estate sale in the morning and dh saw me put the checkbook in my purse…..for you younger folks, it is a stack of paper that promises money to whomevers name you put on it…………ha ha ha

    and amber, it may or may not be you……….but that post partum is real. so glad you have family around you. take advantage of them! especially them grammas!
    and take pictures! and put them on paper in a book.

    and if you are cheap like me….do not invest a bunch on money into baby/kid stuff……….they outgrow it before it wears out. I am sure you have noticed all the baby stuff at yard sales……….and that picnic table thing for outside (or in) I forget who the company is……little tykes maybe?
    just get it at a yard sale and wipe it off with bleach and tada!

    hmmmm……….i have a bunch of paints and chalk and that type stuff to dump, i mean graciously pass on……….:)
    could do a drive by and just leave it in your yard………..:)

    Oooo… a baby!
    No advice here, i don’t have kids. Tbh i’d love to have one now, but i’m still in school and not financially stable. My boyfriend also wants to be able to travel and stuff before kids.

    Did something happen to that purple fairy (names starts with an N?) who shows up and offers you stuff for your stars? I’ve been trying to collect all the items she trades you, but she hasn’t showed up on my account in at least a week, but she used to come every day.

    Oh yeah and what I wish I had when my kids were little is these really cool baby chair/bouncer that vibrates to help sooth baby, my son had one for his kids when they were smaller & it sure helped give mom some free hands to do other things or just to rest a bit when baby gets to fussy. And remember Enjoy every minute even when the nights are long because when they start growing, it is so fast & they are off to School in a blink of an eye! :D

    Good Morning All !
    I am guessing Little ME will arrive March 5th ! AmberRose.. I am sure you are so ready for her to arrive !! I was never able to have a baby of my own… but as a really involved “gaga” ( godmother) one of my cherished memories is reading books and more books.. going to the library and bringing home a bag of books…One of my DN is now 30 and he still remembers his favorite book which he brought home every week and can almost recite the words of the book to this day !! Although the book went out of print… found it on ebay… pretty tattered and well read… Gave it to him for Christmas !

    they had gobs of those ole steamer type trunks that still had the innards! I am meaning the shoe and shirt holders and all of that….just beautiful, but no space here…….and a bunch of old timey irons for seven bucks! we have a couple from bros folks that we use as door stoppers…..lots of artwork, quilts and just stuff. folks are just relocating, so it was not sad to look thru what the kids did not want, if you know what i mean………..and the house was gorgeous!

    Hey Everyone !
    dee.. the book I was referring to was called Weeny Witch… For whatever reason my nephew loved this book… I think the author is Ida Delage…
    One of my favorites was The Rainbow Fish… and Dr. Seuss’s To Think That I Saw it on Mulberry Street !

    funny as just last weekend we were talking about a story that we had to read over and over and over and over to dh……….it was in one of them I can read type books

    i know i have it here somewhere……..we give a lot away, but not special stuff

    but we have always been book fans and i am so happy that dd carries it forward. she likes ebooks, but loves going to libraries………hopefully that will pass on too…………..before i am too old!

    i need a ME!
    i mean, come on……….i bake, i have books, i have flowers in the garden, i can crochet……….sheesh

    oh there was another book we LOVE

    The Hiccupotamus

    I was the only one who could read Runny Babbit so it sounded like it made sense by adopting a deep southern accent like my grandmother’s :)

    Hello my Friends! :D

    Dee We sure could use your Boat here where I live! Our City went into a State of Emergency Yesterday & almost 5000 people have been Evacuated from about 2200 homes! & A lot with out Power Dues to Flooding! Thank goodness we are 7 blocks outside of the Evacuation area & We are all fine & have Power & heat! But the boat would be great to do grocery shopping! :lol:

    I was very Surprised to find that my Love bought me the Big pack of E-store points with 4 Pets this morning for my B-Day & 3 of my Children will be here shortly for a nice Dinner! 1 of then I have not seen since last year when he took me for a b-day lunch! So excited to see them all! :D

    Well got to go now & get ready for my Special Evening! :D

    Have an Awesome Evening my Friends! :mrgreen:

    Stopping in quick to say hello to everyone! So much rain here. Ruby—Hope you are not in a flood area.

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY shellyb.! Hope you are having a wonderful day!

    A very overdue Thank You to Ruby, Cheese and moms for the awesome gifts last week and the week before!!!

    Oooh, I’m going to guess March 1st for the arrival of ME! (Did anyone guess that yet?) I really hope it will be Feb. 28th in honor of your grandma tho. <3 I don't have children myself, so my advice is more from the auntie perspective. Don't be too hard on yourself. Give yourself some slack and accept that you don't have to be perfect….just love her, that's all she really needs. Ya know, aside from feedings, diaper changes, baths and shelter, etc…you know what I mean! :)

    dee—Marshmallow peep oreos!!! ooh, I might have to try those!

    Hope all are well — moms, hope the warthog is recovering. Ruby/Zingy—Hope your DHs are getting better every day. Have a good evening everyone.

    I think Madelyn will be born on February 28th at 4:00 PM.

    I will try to post my nursery rooms tomorrow.

    One thing my mom has told people we know that have babies is to sleep when the baby is napping.

    My mom also loves Tommee Tippee Explora Easi Roll Bibs. They can be found on Amazon. She gives them to everyone we know that have babies and used them when my sister and I were babies.

    My favorite book is Love You Forever by Robert Munsch.
