twin wishlist!

It's no secret that I love baby products. And now that we're having twins, does that mean twice the baby gadgets!? Well, not quite. But kind of! I'm not excited about the cost of all of this, but it sure is fun looking (and dreaming) about everything!

Graco Ready2Grow LX Stand & Rider Stroller!
I love this little stroller! It has 15 or so configurations to change the seats. Here are a few of them:

Of course, our configuration will look more like this:

Adalyn has never really loved a stroller and was worn mostly as a baby. And now that she's a pro walker, she would rather walk with us! I'm hoping these kiddos embrace the wonders of a stroller and love it! Ha! With that second pictures, I guess I could wear one baby in the Moby and put Ad and one baby in the stroller. The issue is that Adalyn still kind of needs a stroller - especially if we go somewhere like a zoo where we'll be walking a lot. This one only cost $200 (only $150 if you catch it on a big Babies R Us sale!) and I just can't beat that price.

More baby carriers!!
Right now I just have a Moby and an Ergo. I love them (LOVE!) both, but I prefer the Moby for the first 7 (or so) months, and the Ergo for a bigger kiddo. I was looking for pictures online of some ideas, and this mom used two ring slings:

and this mom used 2 Ergos:

I can so do that! My sister has a Maya Wrap, so I'm hoping to steal hers :) And I love my Ergo so much that this gives me an excuse for a new one.. right? Now they have all those adorable colors - I just can't resist!

Ju-Ju-Be B.F.F. in Sangria Sunset
Okay, can I dream a little? I'm in love with this diaper bag and absolutely love this pattern. Unfortunately, $165 for a diaper bag is ridiculous for me. I have the Ju-Ju-Be Packabe now and LOVE it! I'll probably just keep on using my Packabe but will for sure always need a backpack diaper bag now that I'll have 3 little hands to hold onto! A bag slipping off your shoulder is the WORST! Can I get an Amen..

the Double Blessings Nursing Pillow
Well, this is one I'll for SURE need. I love that it has a little attachable cover, but I'm really unsure that I'll ever tote this thing around. I've nursed Adalyn everywhere - you name it, airplanes, restaurants, the 3rd row pew at church, everywhere! But I highly doubt I'll be toting this thing around - haha. I'm sure eventually I'll get the hang of just holding both at the same time. But it looks to be a lifesaver at home and in the middle of the night!

New! Cloth! Diapers!
As of now, the vast majority of our stash is FuzziBunz which I LOVE. I have zero complaints and am actually weary of buying other brands. I've tried other brands (Kawaii, Thirsties, Blueberry, etc.) and nothing can live up to the awesomeness of FuzziBunz. I do love my one bumGenius, though, so I may get more of those. I also want to try GroVia and Rumparooz. Luckily, we have a cloth diaper store here, so I can look at each diaper and help my decision-making!


Matching twin crocheted hats. Matching hilarious onesies. Coordinating Aden & Anais blankets. Oh for cuteness, so exciting! Even if we have a boy & a girl, I can still coordinate so much! All it takes is to go to Etsy and type in "twin crocheted hats" and the cuteness is overwhelming :)

We just need to strike it rich now, don't we!? :) Luckily, we have a lot of time to prepare for these kiddos! All of this seems like a dream!


  1. Highly recommend the double blessings nursing pillow! Used it to nurse my boys to 14 months!

  2. I sooo wish that Graco stroller was out when we got our double. I saw it in the BRU catalog a month or two ago and it looks so great! And so much smaller than our current double. Sigh.

  3. I LOOOOOVVVEEEE Emmalyn's Rumparooz! They are hands down my favorite diapers!

  4. Just reading this scares me if we have twins lol I'm wore out just thinking about it. Your going to be an anaziming mommy to twins! We are looking at the sit and stand strollers since our Adalynn will be under a year when the second is born. I love the wrap idea for twins! And the nursing pillow is a must! Im excited to read if the twins are really close sleepers or could careless or if they both agree in the same things such as swings or bouncers.
