What Kind of a Camera Do YOU Have??

With Baby #3 on its way, the hubster and I have been discussing getting a new camera.

My horrible-mom confession is that since my camera broke a year or so ago, I haven't replaced it, which means I took less pictures of the family, unless it was on my cell phone.

So.. I'm not looking for anything expensive.. Just an affordable (but not "cheap") point and shoot that takes clear pictures. Perhaps with good sports/movement setting, (my kids are always on the go!), and one that takes good indoor pics, as we're going to be having the new baby.

Show me, or tell me what you have!

Baby Shopping Help

So, you may have seen some of Lauren's posts about her peculiar case of "I have no idea what's the wrong with me" suddenly equaling a surprise pregnancy. If you haven't, well, now you know. It's come as quite the surprise for Lauren and her family, but imagine all of her friends surprise as well! We can't wait to shop, but we need your help!

Lauren's starting all over again, as her littlest is going to be 6 by the time the new peanut makes its arrival. Although it hasn't been "forever", there's still a ton of time between her middle child and the new baby. There's so many cool products that have come out in the meantime that help to make a parents life easier. You know the products I mean- the ones you think you may not have survived the first year without??

So.. if you've had a baby any time in the last year or so, what super-amazing-couldn't-live-without products did you have? Please share with us!

Also, if you're currently expecting, share with us which product you've seen/heard of recently that you can't wait to try.

If you're a veteran mom, or like Lauren starting over again, we'd love to hear which products you thought were a waste of time or money.
