Baby Goings On

Well today was the dreaded glucose test..Not so bad!! Course I don't know if I passed or not but I HATE having my blood drawn and at least I survived. For all you future pregnant gals and those yet to take the test the orange drink is not as nasty as everyone says!

On a happier note I finally got started on my registry. It seems everyone I know is having boys and I felt my suspicions were confirmed as I perused the aisles at Babies R Us...Highchair count 6- (2 pink, 6 blues/greens) stroller count 5- (1 pink, 4 blues/greens)...are you seeing a pattern? My big sis was with me and tried to explain the whole "gender neutral" concept to me. So maybe it wasn't as boy-biased as I thought...A few of my favorite things:

I love this bouncer and swing...and Yes the majority of items for baby girl are pink...I just couldn't help myself :)
Some words of advice is if you're like me and totally in the dark when it comes to baby stuff get some advice before you register! Thank goodness for my big sister who offered advice on lots of things..Here are a few of her suggestions:

** Don't be embarrassed to register for high priced items..people often go in together for gifts and you get a 10% discount for items not purchased on your registry if you choose to fulfill them yourself
**Don't be afraid to register for things you need down the road(larger sized clothing and jogging stroller)
** Try out the stroller you register for..make sure it is easy to navigate...her favorites were the Maclaren stroller for portability and the Jeep strollers for front wheel maneuverability
** Splurge for the video monitor (also suggested by my favorite blogger Blue Eyed Bride)

I also have to show another favorite from my Restoration Hardware registry:

How cute is that pig?

My next step is painting the nursery this weekend..I have recruited my sister, mother, and brother-in-law..wonder if they would mind if I skipped out to watch Eclipse??


  1. Registering is so much fun! I love all the little girl things...have you been on Etsy yet? I would be in BIG trouble if we were having a girl! Have fun painting the nursery!

  2. This is the right blog for anyone who wants to find out about this topic. You realize so much its almost hard to argue with you (not that I actually would want?HaHa). You definitely put a new spin on a topic thats been written about for years. Great stuff, just great!
