So DH and I started our registry over the past few days. I started by doing some research online as far as customer ratings for many of the necessities (car seat, breast pump and things like that). Then on Saturday, DH and I spent a few hours at BRU with the scanner. We only got halfway through the store! We still haven't registered for any nursery decor and I know we're missing some important items still. I consider it a work in progress.

So my MIL calls DH on Sunday morning and he mentions that we had spent some time on Saturday registering. Later that night she calls again to tell him that she had gone to the BRU store near her, printed out a dozen copies of the registry, and gave them to all of the family that's in town (most of them live close to each other).

This afternoon I went to check on my registry to get a sense as to what we still need... and I'm scrolling through it like, wait a second, not everything I put on here is on here... something's wrong! And I scroll all the way down to the bottom, and suddenly I come upon the previously blank "already purchased" section and I realize... that in less than 24 hours, my DH's crazy family has purchased 9 items from my registry! And that's including our pack 'n play, along with a couple of other higher-priced things!

And the funniest part is... the shower isn't even until October! THEY ARE NUTS!!

Now, we are talking about a MIL who told me when I got engaged (4.5 years ago) that since my wedding was more than a year off, I could "have a baby and be back in the dress by the wedding." And our 2 losses hit her HARD, so it makes it even more intense for her (and other family members) to finally have a baby to go crazy over. I also know how lucky I am to have in-laws that are not only excited for my baby to arrive, but are also such loving people in general. They amuse me sometimes though!

I AM excited! With the registry up and running, it is starting to feel real to me that I'm actually going to have a baby.
