Yes, I did it.

Soooooo, I took the plunge.

I had been wanting to get to BRU just to check out some bedding for the nursery.  That way, I could go ahead and  pick out the paint for the nursery.   The Mrs had just asked me when I was going to register.  I was putting it off really.  Registering seemed too……I don’t know.  I’m still superstitious.  I was going to wait until 25 weeks.  Right after my next OB appointment.  But suddenly, C-Dub was guiding me to the registry desk, and I was filling out the forms and I had a scanner in hand.

Just that quickly, I had been bamboozled!

I think C-Dub had been plotting to get me there.

It was…………interesting.  Almost fun. 

It started off slow. 

Medela Breastpump……

Medela assessories……

Bopppy…….

Monitors…..Travel Systems…….Bedding…..CLOTHES…..OMG!!!!!!!

I didn’t really register for much. 

 REALLY

Just the basics. 

And some fun stuff that C-Dub and I thought was just too cute to pass up. 

But I had to leave before I hyperventilated.  Plus, my toes were once again the size of vienna sausages and my ankles were following.

And then today, I went and started a baby registry at Target.

Madness really.

And did you know you can add stuff online? From home? From the couch??????

Now I feel like I am obsessed with baby things.  Why is there so much stuff for someone who just eat sleeps and poops for the first 6 weeks of his life?

  1. It’s fun though, isn’t it?

    I had totally forgotten about those scanners. My husband dragged his feet about the wedding registry, but was quite delighted when he discovered that he got to use the scanner. In the end, I realized that every time I turned my back, he scanned something that HE thought was cool! I will have to remember not to let him have free reign when it comes time to register for the baby.

  2. Registering is so much fun! Email me your info and I’ll send you some goodies, now that I’m all experienced and stuff about what newborns need! 😀 Yay! I love buying baby stuff!

  3. I found that most of the stuff was stuff that made mom’s life easier. I’m kinda liking that idea. I figure I’ll be recovering, unable to rest, and nursing all at once. Anything to make life easier sounds great. Anyone know where Alice from the Brady Bunch lives?

  4. That had to be so much fun! Congratulations! That is exciting!
