The first purchase




So...I'm going to share with you my very first baby-related purchase (as I promised yesterday). It's more for me, as I'd said, but I'm getting more brave toward the idea of getting things JUST for baby. I'm really waiting for after I know if we are having a boy or girl. Anyway, it's a diaper bag by OiOi called the "Giraffe Tote." You can find it here.
Yes, it was a big splurge. But I figure it will get a ton of use and after over a year and a half of researching diaper bags (during each pregnancy) this was the only one that screamed "I'm YOURS!" to me. I wanted to truly love the look of the bag and I wanted to make sure it came with everything it needed while still being stylish. It fit the bill and is now mine. Mind you, I've NEVER owned anything with an animal print on it. But, for some reason, this reads more as a general pattern for me. I know the look is not for everyone, but I was thrilled to find it. It's made of a tough canvas material and the inner liner is waterproof. The bag comes with changing pad, insulated bottle holder, wipes case, and dirty duds pouch. It also features little straps you can attach as loops that can affix to a stroller. You can see OiOi's other diaper bags/collections and products HERE.
All images were pulled from BabyCenter.com's online store. The svelte blonde model is also obviously not me. I'm sure the baby isn't hers either. :)

So cute! It's important to love the baby bag since it will live with you for years to come!

Spend away, I say! Other people will flood you with baby items, so why not spend a little extra spoiling yourself? Especially in the early stages, because you'll probably forget about yourself later on.

I had a Oioi bag from my three best girlfriends and everytime we go somewhere (that includes EVERY DAY of the two months we were in Corsica last summer), it is with me. It is the black and white Carry All: I just LOVE IT, my friends are so nice.

hey megan, i'm wondering if you actually ended up finding this bag useful as I'm looking into getting one for myself too!
