Well Nick and I are officially registered! Wait. What's that? I promised nursery pictures by yesterday and here I am starting a post that has the feeling of not mentioning the nursery at all? Um...right. We are basically done. It's awesome. I am so excited to show you...but (you knew there was a but) I really want to have the crib in there for the final pictures. This wouldn't be an issue, except for the fact that the crib we bought...yeah, it was all wrong. It was cherry...and it just looked SO RED in the room. SO we are exchanging it. And we TRIED to do it yesterday, but the dag nab place is closed on Sunday...and tonight we are going to a movie...and tomorrow we are going out to dinner with Nick's brother for his 30th birthday...so Wednesday! Wednesday I will have the finished nursery pics for you guys!
Wow, that was long. I am not even positive any of you remembered that half hearted mention of a Sunday completion picture. Still, now you know. So to the registering. We are done! Our scouting trip sorta failed us because we totally picked a stroller/car seat set that in the end was a large parenting failure. I researched it and decided it was PERFECT. Then we get there and it is GONE. I ask if they will get more in...and they tell me "it has been pulled along with several other sets for safety testing due to the new safety regulations"....right. So we carefully picked the death-trap-stroller/car seat travel system. Awesome. After looking at all of the remaining options we went with the green and gray Chicco...it's know as super safe and wonderfully made, plus Nick and I were totally capable of closing it up and opening it back up without looking like idiots...and we think it is pretty stinking cute (my words not Nicks...he said something like, "it's fine"). I am pretty excited about it!
Besides that we registered for a ton of random crap. I don't even know...things like a high chair, a swing, a tub (it's a baby spa...awesome), a sling (I am excited about this one...)and other random baby junk. We fell in love with this forest bedding set (did I tell you we were doing the nursery in forest stuff??) but of course it isn't at Babies R Us, so we registered for it at a different online store. Isn't it adorable? So I guess the point is that we registered...and we basically finished the nursery. A pretty productive baby weekend if you ask me! We are really proud of ourselves. Hope you all had a good weekend too!
