What Did You Buy New For Baby #2

I have two little boys and my sister-in-law is about to have her second, so I’m thinking about hand-me-downs.  When my second was born, there were many people asking what that could buy for him.  I had a lot of trouble coming up with any suggestions because we already had everything we needed for a little boy.  I was actually happy to have the chance to get more use out of the things that we had in the house.

We reused the bathtub, the crib, the clothes, stroller, glider… everything, really!  There were family members who complained that baby #2 should enjoy new things all of their own, and while I wanted to celebrate #2 just as much as #1, it didn’t make sense to me to re-purchase things that we already owned.

The question is constantly revisited during the holidays when people are thinking about what to buy for my boys.  Since my oldest already has all the best toys, what is there left to buy for the little one?
