A fun floral exhibit at Pioneer Courthouse Square we saw over the weekend.
We headed downtown on Sunday because Jeremy had a group meeting for one of his classes at the PSU library. We ate lunch together, then he headed to the library and I did some shopping.
I bought a dress at H&M. I actually have the exact same dress in three different prints now because it fits the belly really well. Then I tried to shop for baby. I have literally no idea what I am doing. Clothes are easy because we obviously know the due date so we can buy items for that time of year. Music is easy because we know what we like and have had fun buying lullaby versions of some of our favorites.
But, that is all we have purchased. Music and clothes. I know a baby needs the basic things like a car seat, bottles, diapers, a crib, and a stroller. I just have no idea which types of those things would be best for us. I have looked at the lists of "things to register for" and a lot of them seem completely excessive to me. I honestly don't even know what half of the stuff is.
I never worked at a daycare, was not a nanny, and I did not have young siblings. I have never changed a diaper before. I need help, bad. Leave a comment and tell me your favorite items for baby, what you think is completely unnecessary from the "registry lists," and things that you didn't think of before that were definitely needed. Also, if you know of any helpful resources I would love to hear about those as well.
We have to register relatively soon and the thought of doing that is starting to stress me out.
