You probably don't know this about me - I think only Trevor does - but I LOVE BAGS. Purses, I mean. Square ones, rectangles, clutches. Pink, black, green. Small ones, large ones, in-between ones - but mostly small. Which brings me to this post. I need help picking a new one - a diaper bag - a classy one. My baby is two and I'm still not satisfied. I should mention my mom - she has been a tremendous help on my quest. My first diaper bag, a large, barn-shaped one, was from my mom. It was great - but HUGE. Perfect for your first baby - when you carry everything but the kitchen sink around everywhere. I nearly forgot Grant a couple times trying to make sure I got all his stuff. My mom even made me a great bag with a whole bunch of different compartments in September, and it matched a little changing pad I bought from a friend (at least I hope we're friends - haha) who makes adorable things - see her here. But it was too - shall we say... homemade. You know what I mean. So, I took the little removable piece inside that has a whole bunch of little compartments out, and put it in my cute Women's Conference bag from this year. It's mostly green with cream highlights, and an embroidered Women's Conference flower and logo. It's a cute bag, but now that I'm in the swing of things since adding numero dos, I can't take it anymore - I've got to go smaller. And I can't stand having a large over the shoulder bag either - I'm looking for a messenger style. I'm supposed to pretend that I don't know, but considering I bought it (half price!) and it's sitting in our bedroom unwrapped - this is what Trevor bought me for my birthday:
Now this is a mini-purse, for short outings. It has its own change pad, and could hold a few diapers, my wallet, phone, keys, but that's about it. Which won't be enough for longer trips, when I need my nursing cover, bottles, snacks for Grant, Grant's cup, extra clothes... therefore! Here are the bag designs I am choosing from - OR - I could wait until March/April when their new designs come out. Please leave me a comment - I want your advice!
