funny episode! kate and ray, i am a new mtoher of a baby boy. i recommend:-pain meds if you don't enjoy pain because otherwise you feel every(muthertrucking)thing!-peepeeteepees until you get the hang of dodging pee. we had a little r.kelly on our hands from the very first night home. (also, warm bath = you will get peed on. throw an extra washcloth over junk right away).-baby Bjorn. mac loves being in his and i would not get anything done around the house without one.-boucy seat/vibrating chair.-good swaddling blankets (the ones we stole from the hospital were not large enough to get a good swaddle going)-a boppy for nursing support also that beach house album is a great one to rock your little nugget to sleep once he gets here.
