Tonight I embark on a perilous journey...  
Hubbie and I, with moms in tow, will be heading to Babies R Us to do the baby registry.  *cue lightening and thunder* 

While I anticipate much Ooo-ing and Ahh-ing over all the insanely cute baby things, the list of items we need to put on this registry is long.  Babies need an obscene amount of stuff apparently.  I've spent the past week researching cribs, car seats, strollers, and other various essentials.  So many options...it makes your brain go wonky after a while.   I'll let you know how it goes.

Once more into the breach, dear friends, once more...

EDIT:
Well, it wasn't as bad as I thought, but we didn't get to finish.  We closed the store.  I guess I'll be back there over the weekend.  I can add stuff online, but I  want to see the stuff in person.

Oh, come on now... a cardboard box, some old dishtowels, a staple gun, duct tape... what more could babies possibly need? I think you're going overboard with all those specialty items, like cribs and strollers. And car seats? Babies don't drive, silly! (At least not legally, I'd imagine.)

The staple gun and duct tape I'll give you, but the hospital won't let us take the baby home unless we have a car seat. They have all these silly rules or something.

*laughs* Yeh, babies take a lot. Y'know, a lot of first time moms (i.e. me) tend to put a lot of things on the list that they wind up never using. *grin* But, it can be a lot of fun. Tell you what I'd put on mine if I had to do it again: diapers, formula, a Pac n Play thing, diapers, formula, few burp clothes and blankets, diapers, formula, car seat that functions also as infant seat, diapers, formula, stroller, diapers, formula....LOL, seeing a trend?

Mucho expense in the diaper, formula dept. :^D

Have fun!!!!

lol i'm sure it was a lot of fn, did you resist the over cuteness of the baby accessories?
I bet your mum was totally excited accompanying you there ^^

Yeah, it was a lot of fun, surprisingly. I thought it was going to be a chore, but it really wasn't bad at all. I'll probably go back over the weekend to finish adding everything we need. Argh...so much stuff!
