First Big Baby Purchase!

It's done...I pulled the trigger on my first big baby-related purchase! I've never been a Kate Spade purse girl, but I've always loved her diaper bags. She has a few that I like, from checking them out online, so when I needed a repreive from the mall madness yesterday I stepped into Kate Spade to try them on. Love at first try-on. Knock a few bucks off for Black Friday and this girl will make a deal.

I love that this bag is grown-up, like a purse. An enormously gigantitc purse that's too big for my body,  but still... I was a bit worried that I'd be stuck carrying something printed with Mickey Mouse or something pastel and floral, so I am especially glad to have found something that's totally "me". If David had bought my line that I'd use a new Chanel shopper as my diaper bag it'd really be me, but I digress.

It seems way too huge to me, but the sales assistant (mother of three, bless her heart) told me that by the time the baby is a toddler I may have another on the way at that point and, regardless, I'll be packing it full of snacks and toys. I guess it is better to have too much room than not enough, when I think of it that way!

I only managed to figure out this big purchase on my own because this is more for me than the baby, since I'll be the one carrying it. I need help on all the other registry things! I have the Baby Bargains book, but I get very overwhelmed every time I open it and ultimately go back to reading whatever gossip magazine is handy. If you're a mom blogger and have put together a list of must-haves, please leave a link in the comments. If not, feel free to email me your recommendations!
