To register or not

To register or not for this baby.......a part of me thinks that its not necessary because this is my third child and I do have a lot of the needed baby supplies. The other part of me says "yes" because I'm having a girl this go around and I do not have a lot of the needed girl stuff. I honestly do not need much but clothes, bows, shoes and socks but much of that is hard to register for because when people actually go to the stores those items are hard to find.

So this is what I decided to do: if people are going to buy me clothes and shoes, etc they will buy what they like and I'm sure it will be cute! Then I decided to register for items that I need for the nursery and for the bathroom.

I went with these stores for now:

1. (they told me it would take about a week for my registry to come up on the screen.

I registered for some essentials here.

a. cloth diapers

b. diaper bag

c. wetbags for travel for the cloth diapers

I registered for some decor for the nursery.

a. 6 knobs for the dresser I'm refinishing

b. Owl figurine that matches the colors to put essentials in like swabs


I registered for some bathroom items and room decor

a. 2 bath towels
b. towel set
c. monogram pillow for her room

d. owl stuffed animal

My goal until baby comes now is to go through what I have and decide if its needed for Baby C or if I need to sell or donate it. Then the money I make off of those items I will put towards her room and needs. Decorating and planning for a baby girl is fun but they sure need way more than boys do.

Over Spring Break I plan to start transferring Caden's stuff into Connor's room and getting their room set up so it looks more like two boy's room instead of just one. Then I will go ahead and paint Baby C's room and start working on refinishing the furniture. Poor Caden will have to sleep in a girly room for a couple of months, but I don't think he will mind yet. Wow I'm going to be busy =)

If you register at Target you get a bag full of goodies (coupons and samples) Babies R Us also gives some perks for registering, sometimes gift cards for putting certain things on your registry. I registered for a few things with Garrett, but I didn't really tell anyone. I think it is great that you registered for this new little one, so excited for you guys.
