What a Girl Wants

In the past few weeks it seems that everyone we talk to wants to know where we're registered. To be honest, registering has been the furthest thing from both our minds. However, since I was on Spring Break this past week, we decided to spend a couple of hours registering.

We left around 10 o'clock Thursday morning and didn't pull into the garage until almost 9 that night. What we thought would only take a few hours turned into an all day affair. We did have a blast though and I must say Bret was a trooper. Not usually a shopper, Bret really got into the baby spirit and seemed to enjoy finding the necessities and of course the luxury items that we feel will make Gillian (and us) more comfortable.

We were really clueless at the beginning of this whole experience. Not only did we underestimate the time it would take to compile a registry but we grossly underestimated the amount of things a newborn needs. If it weren't for the guidance and recommendations of friends we might still be registering.

I'd like to say that having a baby has really made us mature beyond our years, but that may be stretching the truth just a tad. Although we made it through the nipples, breast pump, and diaper section without so much as snicker, we completely lost it when we reached the aisle with the pee pee teepee. Apparently a must have for parents of little boys, it's a good thing we won't be needing this interesting accessory this time around. I'm not sure I could ever keep a straight face when using it!

We're registered at Babies R Us and Target.

We have the "wee-block" and must say that it's come in handy on more than a few occasions! :)
