Things I Look Forward To As A New Mom

When I was pregnant I feel like I spent so much time day dreaming about what it would be like to have a baby and all the fun things we would get to do. I remember even scouring sales to go ahead and buy Halloween and Christmas outfits for next year just thinking about the holidays. There are so many things I look forward to as a new mom. With Easter coming up I started looking for local Easter egg hunts MONTHS ago. Yes our baby will barely be 2 months old but do you think that’s stopping me from getting those cute photos with the Easter bunny or putting him in the perfect Easter outfit? Nope! Thankfully our little town does a whole Easter eggstravaganza and we are PUMPED!

Other things I look forward to as a new mom include

  • That first Halloween costume
  • Playing Santa to surprise him Christmas morning
  • Starting traditions for every holiday
  • The perfect Easter basket
  • His first July 4th and firework experience – far enough away to protect those tiny ears
  • Bluebonnet photos (one of the best parts of living in Texas)
  • Football season with our future linebacker
  • Watching all of his first milestones

There are so many things to get excited for and “firsts” to plan for! That’s why I am so glad that Pampers and Babies“R”Us are around! When I was pregnant I remember asking all of my mom friends which diapers were the best, and every single one said Pampers Swaddlers. So of course we stocked up and they have been our go to diapers since Liam was born. They fit him great and we have never had so much as a leak. As a busy mom who likes to get out as much as possible, having reliable diapers and a place to get all of our new baby must haves is about as important as anything.  Keeping our baby safe, dry, and happy is a huge priority and Pampers is 100% the way to go! We are so glad that Babies“R”Us has Pampers and everything else we need as new parents. From Pampers to playpens, skincare to strollers, Babies“R”Us has it all!

With our first Easter coming up we are glad that Babies“R”Us is here to celebrate all your milestones and offers the best solutions you need for all your celebrations! That’s why all Babies“R”Us stores across the country are hosting a “Baby’s First Easter” event on Saturday, March 25, 11am-12pm. Bring your baby in a cute Easter outfit and enjoy free activities, giveaways, and photo-ops too! Enjoy your time meeting with other parents and their babies, and have the chance to win fun raffles throughout the event. We will for sure be participating and are super glad there is a Babies“R”Us about 5 minutes from our house! Check out the event details here.

There are also two amazing in store offers going on right now:

  1. Save $10 off any Pampers Value Boxes of Diapers (Available In Store Only 3/17/17 – 3/26/17)

      I’m not yet pregnant but I am always dreaming of the few things that I will be doing my baby/babies when I get them. I also look forward to watching the baby grow. I can’t wait to have my own kids very soon.

      I hope you enjoy being a mom.

      Nice day

      I’m nowhere near being a mom but I think I would look forward to taking photos and videos of EVERYTHING my baby will do and always come up with short videos and albums of his cuteness ☺️

    3. Krysten

      My brother just had his first child and he was talking about these same things! And I’m pretty excited to buy him lots of books and (when he’s older) introduce him to scary movies!

      It’s such a special time. Enjoy and document every second – you’ll be SO glad you did. I wish I’d been a blogger when mine were young. 😉

      I’m not a mama yet, but I DO know that Pampers is where it’s at (as an aunt for the cutest three babies!). I have a few friends who tried cloth diapers and, while in theory it’s nice, I already know that there’s NO way I am going to go down that path! Pampers, here I come 😉

      Pampers really are awesome – it’s the diapers they use in my hospital and that we’ve always bought. Target brand also works exactly the same as Pampers for my kiddos.

      The “firsts” were so fun to experience with my son, and now with my daughter! She’ll be 1 next month and it’s hard to believe a year has flown by. We’ll also be celebrating her first Easter a few days before her birthday, and I’m so looking forward to all of the photo opps!

    8. Melanie Burbage

      Being a Mom is awesome! Lots of firsts, seconds and thirds ! I have enjoyed each moment and look forward to the future moments with my four kidlets! Enjoy all the moments~

    9. Christy

      When I was pregnant with my first, I was so excited for all the firsts! I thought that feeling would go away when I had more kids, but even now with my third, I still LOVE seeing every milestone.

    10. Isabelle

      Omg I can totally relate! My little one is due in less than 2 months and I’m SO EXCITED for so many things…I’d be here forever if I tried to list everything haha 🙂 Cameras will always be ready to snap all those gorgeous moments, and I also can’t want to dress up my little baby in all sorts of cute and funky outfits!

    11. Emily

      Pampers Swaddlers are our favorite, too! And yes, those firsts are so incredible. It’s fun to get them all dressed up for their first holidays, even if they have no idea what’s going on!F

    12. Sally

      Treasure all those firsts with your baby! They say it goes by fast and it does. My daughter is going to be 4 soon and I can’t believe it.

      I was so excited for our first christmas (and even our second christmas since our baby was born in October and Christmas really meant nothing at 2.5 months lol). But by our third christmas I was totally PUMPED. It’s so exciting being a mom. I promise it gets EVEN BETTER!

    14. Erika ortega

      My baby’s first holidays were always at the top of the list. They bring so much joy and a whole new prespective. Christmas has changed so much for me since becoming a mom. I think watching your kids open their presents is one of my favorite. That my husband and I tend to forget about ourselves. The kids make up for all of that!

    15. Babita

      When I was a new mom, I couldn’t wait to take care of my baby and play with her. I was disappointed when I realized that the first month all the baby does is sleep. I am glad I was home with both of them and enjoyed their baby years.
