Registry is finally finished

My goodness...that seriously took days of work. Days. Ridiculous I tell you.

Of course, I'm going based on what all these checklists say you'll need. I'm sure I'll get a few months into it and have to ask myself, "Why on earth did you ever think this was useful?" or "Did you really think you needed 12 of these?" And yes, I leaned toward organic stuff where ever possible, which turns out to be almost everywhere. I'm sure this will bring on a huge load of criticism from my mother who will ask why I can't just buy burp cloths at the dollar store. Well, I guess I could but I don't want to. Luckily between BabiesRUs and Amazon I managed to find everything we need (or think we need) and even some stuff we just want. I am only disappointed that doesn't have a registry. Le sigh.

I am super lucky though- a woman I work with has a 6 month old girl and she has passed down to me several things including tons of clothes, swingy things, bouncy things, playmat things, and yes, even her Peg Perego infant car seat. Nice!

As an interesting aside, to access a registry you have to spell my last name correctly! This should be interesting. I thought that when I took Tim's last name I would be simplifying my life. Ha! So naive...

She's on the move!

Baby peeper is moving a lot these days! Maybe it has something to do with my own increased energy? I've been feeling her regularly for a couple of weeks now but Tim hasn't been able to feel her at all...until last night. She was moving so much and kicking hard enough for him to feel~ I wish I had a camera to capture the look on his face. It was priceless and so sweet!

Heather and baby stuff

I just dropped Heather off at the airport and I'm sad she's gone. We had a fun weekend! We didn't do hardly any typical San Francisco stuff. Rather, we shopped and ate a lot!! When we went to Anthropolgie Heather found the only baby item in the whole store (on sale - sweet!) so she bought a present for baby peeper:
I found a little hat for her at a maternity store last Thursday. Since I was hot on the heels of good news I snapped one up to celebrate that she has a head with a brain in it to put a hat on (and I had a discount for working at the store owners favorite vet clinic). The hat is made by and I highly recommend these as a shower gift or just for fun. It's made of angora and lambswool - super, super soft. I got her "black purl" cause I like black.
