I am a serious over packer, over planner, and to no one’s surprise…an over registerer. No, that is not a word but for today it is. I chose to register at Target and Babies-R-Us since those are basically my only options. I have discovered that I love Buy, Buy, Baby but the nearest one is over an hour away so it isn’t really an option. Although I am a first time mom, I have definitely spent a lot of time around kids. I babysat through high school and now several of my friends have kids. Before I went in to the stores I thought…ok, don’t register for unnecessary stuff. You don’t need everything in the store. Then I walked in….and all thoughts went flying from my brain. I wanted it all!! I have already been informed that there are several baby showers in my future so I figured registering for too much may not be a bad thing. The one thing I stayed away from was clothing. I put a few of the solid white onesies that you really can’t have enough of on there and socks but other than that, no clothing. Here are a few collages of the items I have chosen.
Joe actually picked out the stroller. I definitely had a smaller one picked but he said, “This one has suspension so we can go feed the deer together”. After a comment like that, the man can pick out whatever he wants. The car seat I am super pumped about. I love the all black, very clean look of this one. Not to mention the safety ratings are through the roof. I went ahead and put both the swing and bouncer on there because I think both are handy. Are both necessary? No of course not. In fact, neither are really necessary – just a nice bonus. The Pack-N-Play is going to be an essential item at first. Babies have to sleep somewhere! I had initially picked an Ikea dresser and I may change my mind back but when I saw this set, I fell in love.
