On starting the registry.

Sorry for the extended absence from the blog. For those of you that don't know, I have been teaching in a long-term position since the middle of October so I have been super busy with lesson planning, grading and all that other fun stuff teachers do. It has also made me very tired most days of the week!

I had another ultrasound done this month to verify that we are indeed having a boy. We are now up to 100% boy status! With that, we were able to officially start our registry. I had been told that completing a baby registry is very overwhelming and I wholeheartedly agree! Jon and I had gone to Babies R Us previously just to check out items and to see what they had, but it seemed like there were 10 times more items there when we went back to begin our registry. We worked on it for an hour and a half and only put about 20 items on the list before we had to call it quits for the night. In fact, I almost broke down crying in the baby bath aisle due to feeling so overwhelmed. Gotta love those pregnancy hormones! Baby registries are serious business, people.

We were able to at least get much of the "big" stuff added, but we still have a lot more to add before the baby showers begin! So, we should probably get on that soon. Any tips for making the process less overwhelming?
