Baby Registry

Hey guys! Well, James and I started our baby registry today and man am I exhausted!! We decided to go ahead and start on it because a few people have already said they'd like to get us something soon, and we wanted to be sure that everything would match and go with our style. So, since we don't know the sex of the baby yet we started with the things we knew we wanted in neutral colors so they can be reused for our future children down the road. I'm very happy with the few things that we did pick out today! And, let me tell you I was completely overwhelmed by the many different options of the same items....like what type of bottles, what type of nipples for the bottles, what type of breast pumps, or bath tubs, or baby monitors, and humidifiers. I will have to go back with my mom soon so she can help me! Normally I am the one that wants to stay and keep shopping, but I'm telling you I was about ready to go the second James was this time! Anyway, we are obviously registered at Babies R Us and you can find us under Melissa McFarlin or James McFarlin.

P.S. - Although it was all very overwhelming.....it was also very fun! Everything we do now just makes things more and more real for us!

I love the new background on your page! Yes, registering is so overwhelming but so much fun! Let me know if you ever have any questions on certain products and I'll tell you what worked for us! I do have a few "must haves"! =)

Go out and buy a book called "Baby Bargains" immediately. It's probably pretty cheap on Amazon, I got it at Barnes and Noble. It was the best, most helpful tool in deciding on baby stuff. ;)

Half the stuff that they suggest on the lists is completely unnecessary, but looks so cute and/or cool that you just have to have it! I love baby stuff and could probably spend days in BRU. Let me know if you need any recommendations.

Oh, to answer your question about my lists. BabyCenter and/or American Baby have hospital bag recommendations and birth plans for you to start with and modify. There is no way I would have come up with all that on my own!
