Yesterday I went to Grassroots and registered for our baby shower. It is so much fun picking out your own gifts! It’s like looking at the Sears Wish Catalogue when I was young. I spent at least an hour there, and in hind site, probably just should have pointed out the items I didn’t want (as there were only 4 or 5).
Grassroots does registries for both wedding and baby showers. I was talking with the cashier there about also having birthday registries, but I’m not sure if that would fly. Showers and Weddings are something that definitely require gifts, but birthdays….not necessarily. May be it would seem demanding or pretentious to have a birthday registry?
We also received our second hand stroller yesterday.Thanks to Sean for driving it up from Midland! It definitely makes the impending birth seem more real with a stroller in our living room!
