What a long day! We registered for baby stuff at Target and Walmart today. We found a lot more stuff at Target than we did at our Walmart. It was a little overwhelming to see all the choices available and I can't even imagine what BabysRUs must look like!

I was sure wishing I had someone with me who knew which stuff was stuff I'd actually use and which I could do without. At one point, I did get a little teary-eyed and told Jason that "I wish my mom was here. Or Bonnie. Or Leslie. Or Michelle. Or Jenni. They'd know what I need and we'd have fun shopping for it." But I did pick out a bunch of stuff we'd like to have in the nursery and I think we managed to make some good choices on the big-ticket items like a stroller, carseat, crib, etc. At least I hope we did. I know we're worn out from all that shopping! It was hard to stay away from choosing boy stuff or girl stuff. We did pick a little bit of gender-specific stuff at Walmart, but hopefully most of it will work for either a girl or a boy.

We went with a Jungle theme for almost everything we picked out today. A lot of green and yellow stuff which I think will look nice with the light blue paint we chose. Now we just need to find time to move the office stuff out of here and turn it into a baby's room. I shudder just to THINK of all the work that involves! Organizing and painting the guest bedroom, putting in a phone jack so we will have a place to plug in our computer, moving all the stuff from the office to the guest bedroom and finally painting the nursery. Anyone want to help?
