A newly-pregnant friend of mine was out shopping the other day and, before she knew it, she found herself browsing at baby things. She spotted some cute little dragonfly and ladybug forks and spoons and was tempted to buy them, but then felt kind of superstitious about getting something for the baby so early on.
I totally felt the same way when I was pregnant -- it's fun to look at baby things and to fantasize about what your new boy or girl will be like. But buying something and bringing it home makes the whole thing seem so real!
What's the first thing you bought for your baby? And how soon did you buy it?
