Baby Shower

I am officially in my 3rd trimester starting today. I can't believe it when I say that I'm 27 weeks pregnant. I've always said that once I hit 30 weeks, I would be in the home stretch. Well, I'm only 3 weeks away from that. Yikes!! And, not to mention, 2nd trimester FLEW by. But that was probably because of all the moving and I didn't have time to sit down and enjoy myself much :) I'm so excited to meet this little boy! The time can't go fast enough, though.

We'll be heading up to St. Louis in about 2 weeks for my baby shower.

Just wanted to clarify my registry information...

First of all, registry has been a big headache. I thought it would be easier but it's really annoying haha. This isn't like getting married where you really can just pick out anything you want. This is for another human being to survive. We also don't have a lot of things (since it's our first baby) so it feels pretty overwhelming.

I registered at Babies R Us at first, and then quickly realized that their prices are way above other places and I heard that they don't easily accept returns. Bummer.
BUT, I understand that that's where a lot of people go to buy registry stuff.

SO, I am registered at Babies R Us, Target, AND There are some things that are a must that are on all 3 registries. There are some things that I couldn't find at Target that I had to register for on the other places. I just wish one place had it all... but nope. Actually, is my favorite and had mostly everything we needed, but I doubt many people will be shopping online.
Really the only reason why we registered online there is because we are going the cloth diaper route. The cloth diapers that we are wanting are only on www. SO, we figured, what the heck. Might as well register for them. Right now our biggest need are those cloth diapers. Without them... well, our child will be pooping all over himself. Just kidding :)

Since it is kind of confusing and there are so many different things on all 3 websites, our biggest needs are just the necessities. When I would shop for other people, I used to skip over registries and buy an outfit that I thought was cute. But now that I'm about to have a little person, I am realizing that there's a LOT more to it than just cute little outfits. Ha ha.

Just looking over the registries, I am amazed at how much a little human needs. It's crazy.

I am so blessed that my mom and mother in law are throwing me this shower though. If anything we are just so excited to see all our great friends that we haven't seen since we moved from STL.

Something not listed on the invite.... husbands/guys are invited. I don't know whoever came up with the deal that girls have all the showers. It's Will's baby too!! Ha ha. He is excited to be there and to see everyone too :)

So, I hope that clarifies everything.

We feel like our baby is already so loved and cared for. We have such a peace that God has everything covered and ALL the little boy's needs will be taken care of.

Can't wait to see everyone in a couple weeks!





  1. I'm so glad that you're going the cloth diaper route! And also that you're having a co-ed baby shower. Props on both points!


  2. laura, you will get everything you need, and more :) yes it feels like a lot, but when he's 1 yr old you'll realize you didn't even use a lot of it. and then you'll find out what you love and don't love, and on your second kid you'll want another baby shower for all the things you love and need more of :) ha ha. anyway, you are so blessed, and you'll be well taken care of. excited for you!!

  3. I'm so excited to see you! Don't know if we'll be able to come to the shower yet or not - either way bought the gift at and am having it sent to you guys there so we'll be coming empty-handed - I figured you'd have plenty to negotiate getting home! LOL :)

    Can't wait to see you! Wanna do any preggo pics while you're here?
