When you are trying to be prepared for your baby to be born, it can be overwhelming trying to figure out what you need.
When I was in my first trimester of pregnancy, my husband and I entered a giant baby store, and I walked out of there not buying a thing, and feeling so overwhelmed. I probably even cried. There were so many products and I just kept thinking that it was going to be so expensive to buy everything I needed.
Well, it turns out there are a lot of things you really don't need, and some that will make your life easier. I'm sharing my top items that I absolutely love for my baby boy. They have helped me tremendously.
This was one of the first gifts I received while I was pregnant with Benjamin. The Complete Illustrated Children's Bible, by Harvest House. I was so excited when I opened it up and saw all the gorgeous photos on each page. It covers the Old and New Testament, and has 606 pages. I had been wanting a book that I could read with him for his morning devotions, and when I received this one, I knew God had heard my heart.
We usually read this in the morning times for devotional time, or sometimes in the evening if the morning got too busy. Afterwards I will sing a couple Bible songs with him that hopefully go along with the stories we read that morning. For example when we read the chapters on David, I sang the song "Only a boy named David..." and so on.
It has been such precious time that we get to spend together and with God. As soon as I lay him on the bed and pull out the book he either gets real quiet and listens intently the entire time, or he will "talk" non-stop as I'm reading it.
This is by far my favorite item I have for him. If you click the picture it will take you to a link on Amazon where you can purchase it, and I hope you do.
