So, I finally ventured into two baby stores today to start browsing so I can go back in a few days and create a registry. I have been looking at various things online but was too overwhelmed until now and needed to do a bunch of research first (I'm kind of Type A that way). Also I'm Jewish and we're kind of superstitious about setting up the nursery or buying very much before the baby is born. (Although I did decide to have my baby shower before Baby JAK is born because I need stuff and it will be insanity after he is born.)

I almost cried by the time I left the second store. Everything was just so darn cute and sweet and I wanted to scoop up everything for the baby. All the hoody baby towels and snuggly blankets with animals on them and the little outfits and the itty bitty socks and shoes.

Of course I don't know that I made any progress on figuring out what I want, but at least I'm a little closer.

So glad you got out to the baby stores! I love baby shopping.
I had a friend in my old DDC who, because she was Jewish, did not shop for her baby prior to the birth. Her mother in law, who was not Jewish, was so disrespectful of her wishes! I think the mother-in-law drove my poor friend crazy the whole 9 months! When she went into pre-term labor and had to be at the hospital for a few days, the crazy MIL went and bought stuff, brought it back to her house and set up the nursery!!!! WTH??? Then she told my friend she had a suprise for her and when my friend (and her parents were with her to make it even worse!) went upstairs, the MIL had all this stuff bought and brought into the house!!!! My friend tried to be nice and be grateful and all but she was really bothered that her MIL was so blatently disrespectful of her customs and her wishes. Plus, she said it almost caused her parents, who were VERY traditional, to have a heart attack! She laughed about it later, but at the time she was quite understandably pissed off. Plus, SHE had been looking forward to buying those things and MIL ruined it for her.
Anyway, I always have the same reaction as you in the baby stores. I want to snap up all the cute stuff I see. I would buy it all if I could. I know I'm having a girl, so when I see the cute girl stuff it makes me SO GLAD to be having a girl. Then I see all the cute boy stuff and it makes me SAD I'm NOT having a boy!!! LOL!
With my b/g twins I was happy I could buy both but it sort of sucked cause it doubled the cost of everything too!

Thank you Kiliki for my awesome siggy!

So exciting!!! I bought a few onesies at Target last week on clearance and I was SOOO excited when I opened the washer and saw the pink in there!!! I'm so used to blue and brown!

Christine- that opening the washer thing happened to me too the first time I had a girl (after 5 boys). I was SO used to blue. I bought some girl things at "Once Upon A Child" and Target and threw them in the wash. Then I didn't really think about it. At the end of the cycle when I went to put them in the dryer I felt a split second of shock and suprise when I opened the washer lid! It was pink! I was so excited the rest of the day!

Thank you Kiliki for my awesome siggy!
