Registering for Gifts: Check!

We are officially registered for baby gifts at both Target and Babies-R-Us!!! I'm so glad we started with Target since it was WAY easier. It took as 1 hour, whereas it took us 3 full hours today at BRU to get it all done.

That store is gigantic and overwhelming. But I think we did a really good job and we definitely have a ton of stuff on both our registeries. Finding gender neutral really wasn't all that tough, considering I prefer tans, browns, and green. We also bought our furniture today (well our parents bought it) from BRU since it was 20% off this weekend and we (aka: they) saved a ton of money. It will take about 2 weeks to come in, so Aaron has time to get the carpet cleaned before I'm nagging him to put it together! I let Aaron control the gun for a while, although he was scanning items behind my back. :) You might notice my mom in the background proudly wearing her "Going to be a Grandma" shirt.
I tried out crib mattresses. We ended up going with a serta that has the cutest little lambs on it. I know you won't see the lambs but I will know they're there!

I finally got my pics scanned from this week, so better late than never- here are my 26 week shots! Poor tank top. It is really struggling to hang in there.
And, of course, the naked belly. Which feels SO much better than the belly that is dressed. It itches less, keeps me cooler, and makes me look so ridiculous. Aaron's getting used to me walking around the house and riding in the car with my belly exposed. Also, it makes it easier to watch Gil's adorable movement from the outside of my tummy.


  1. Whew! You got a lot done!! You're so fortunate to have your mom close and able to do that with you!!
    I love your belly - let it all hang out!!

  2. Isn't it so exciting to have a registry??! Congrats on getting it done all in one day!

  3. I am the same way about exposing my belly. I am constantly looking at it, rubbing it, and watching it move. I am going to miss my big belly when the baby is born!!!

  4. I'm so jealous you've registered! We're going next Friday, and I feel like I need to go soon as I quickly lose energy as the days go on. Your belly is super cute, and I totally agree it is way more comfortable exposed...I can only imagine what it will be like as we get bigger and the summer gets hotter.

  5. WOO HOO!! Way to go! It is a big job! But super fun, huh? And I think it's both great and hilarious that you tried out the crib mattresses!! And you selected the same one that we bought...So now I can definitely rest assured that our baby will be super comfortable since my bloggy frined Amber tested it out!! HAHA! Love that picture...I showed it to my huband and he thought it was great too!! :)

  6. Yeah!!! As a hostess of your shower I am super excited you registered! Way to go....I remember how overwhelming it is. Your pictures from your cruise are gorgeous! I love are such a beautiful pregnant lady. We can't wait to see you all soon...And I still haven't felt Gil move yet. Come see us soon! Mendy
