23 Weeks – Preparation

This week Rob and I hit Babiesrus, again. This time we got through our first attempt at registering; we both were exhausted after that 2.5 hour adventure. Now that we have placeholder items, we need to go back and read reviews and actually decide which specific brand or type of items and if it will be on our Amazon or Babiesrus registry.

What we also learned is that everything is always on sale at Babiesrus and you just have to play the coupons right when making purchases. This week we ordered a crib which looks similar to this one: http://www.toysrus.com/product/index.jsp?productId=4358801&cp=2255957.2273443.3561177.3561191&green

I am attempting to build up my “cool mom” status with a new Ju Ju Be diaper bag ($140 on their website and only $40 at Costco) while still picking a pattern that is practical for hiding dirt: http://www.amazon.com/Ju-Be-Diaper-Marvelous-Mums/dp/B003UERR3G/ref=sr_1_2?s=baby-products&ie=UTF8&qid=1329162599&sr=1-2

Finally, this week I have started wearing maternity shirts in addition to maternity pants. I feel very lucky to have friends that let me borrow their clothes so I simply had to go “shopping” in their donation bins and fold up my old clothes to make room in the closet until summer.
