Jeff and I had a great time registering for our little girl. We were at Babies R Us for three hours on Saturday and only managed to register for 20 items. We spent a lot of time playing with the travel systems, we REALLY looked like amatures trying to take the infant seat off the stroller, close up the stroller, then attempt to put it all back together. I am sure it's a quite a different experience with a screaming baby!! We had a great time though and left feeling a bit more knowledgeable about baby products! Thank God for the staff and Babies R Us, we pretty much needed a full time assistant walking around with us answering all of our questions!!!! We ended up going with the Graco Quattro Deco line for the Travel System, Pack N Play, Swing, and Infant bouncer. I really liked the pattern of this set, it's polka dot, but also browns and blue in case we have a boy in the future. Jeff and I were exhausted and both complaining of sore backs by the end of the day, we didn't even attempt to check out Pottery Barn Kids or Berg's Baby Furniture. This is going to be a long procss, but one we have been dreaming about for years. I am headed back to Babies R Us this weekend with my Mom and my Sister, the new baby experts in our family to tell me what I REALLY need.
I am feeling more confidant lately that the little flutters and popcorn movements from my belly lately are from my little girl. She has a tendency to use my bladder as a pillow so as I crawled back into bed from my 2am potty break, I really felt some popcorn near my belly button. I just laid in bed listening to the noises of the summer bugs coming from our woods and feeling my little girl tap around in there. It was really cool, for once I didn't want to fall back to sleep!
