You can save travel time and have more family time
Seeing that you are willing to commute, and that is a good thing because the neighborhoods very close to downtown are more young-professional/single-friendly homes, like high-rise, townhouse, condo types. I agree with some of the suggestions here, about Katy, Richmond & Sugarland, which are southwest of downtown & accessible via a selection of thoroughfares namely Interstate10, Highway 59 or Beltway 8. There are a lot of master-planned communities there, mostly family/kid-friendly & great school districts. Katy is my number one pick in this area.
Spring Branch is a little closer & farther up north is Cy-Fair via Highway 290. There are just so much information to squeeze in here but if you want to request a free magazine that lists communities in these areas, please don't hesitate to email your address me so I can send one over to you, without obligation.
I wish you the best in your home search & I hope to have the opportunity to help you.

About the only information not asked or provided is: Do you have family or close friends here in Houston in one of the surrounding communities mentioned. Family or friends provide a great, comforting support system. We all need help one time or another. And certainly since you're about to become a parent.
Since you expect to work downtown and all our freeway converge at that point, perhaps knowing what freeway system will be most convenient to your place of employment, could provide a starting point for an appropriate seach outward for your new residence.
In assisting individuals relocating, we provide a Gateway to our HAR.com website with searches that provide homes, in any category--single family, townhome or condo---that meet your specific needs. Getting daily updates of homes ahead of the move gives you a good overview and prevents feeling rushed or over stressed. Buying a home is an important decision; the more information, the better.
Please feel free to call or write and I welcome the opportunity to be of assistance.

When I think of kid friendly, I think of nice parks, community pools which have baby pools and water parks, good size backyard possibly with a covered patio, and possibly a house on a cul-de-sac. If this is what you are thinking when you mention kid friendly, Cinco Ranch in Katy, Texas (a suburb west of Houston) may interest you. I've helped several newly married couples with infants move to Cinco Ranch this summer, and am presently helping another couple. Many of these young couples are first-time homebuyers and need guidance through the home purchasing process.
The Cy Fair area (northwest of downtown out Highway 290) is also a great community.
Just depends if you are willing to commute to town. Give me a call or send me an email, it would be a privilege assisting you with your move and real estate goals. Let me know when you'll be in Houston and we can go look at some areas that interest you.
Congratulations on that baby girl!
