A few weeks ago some of my "Mom" friends went with me to register at Babies R Us.
Brooklyn, Courtney, and Courtney's son, Brody.
He didn't go with us, he just wanted to be in at least one picture. He was changing his mind by the time the retake came:
But isn't he just a handsome little boy. I love his red hair and I love his personality.
It was great to have these two ladies go with me. They had lots of advice and were so very patient. We covered the entire store!! I registered for more items than I thought I would and I later revised it online and eliminated some items because I felt bad asking for some of the items. My first run at it left my registry 18 pages long!!! The clerk said she had seen way longer!The clerk was so sweet and kind. She thought it was hilarious I took her picture.
I removed some items and I actually purchased one item using a coupon I had:
We had debated back and forth on getting a changing table. We weren't sure how much room we would have or how much we would use it. Was it something we absolutely had to have? We found this one while registering that would match the wood fairly close. I went back later and bought it with a 15% coupon.
Do you use a changing table?
We bought a car seat a few months ago in preparing for our home study. We wanted to show we were absolutely ready for an infant.
Here are just a few items I also selected.
It is getting harder and harder to stay gender neutral. There are so many cute and precious blankets, bibs, & clothing! I have been blessed to have such a variety of advice on baby equipment. I sure hope I am selecting the right items!!
I was a smiggin overwhelmed and we covered a lot of material.

Thank goodness for a nice meal at Chili's afterwards.
Last night was our last class for Resource Family Training!!! YES!!!!!
Afterwards, Bryan and I went to Target and finished registering there. His eyes were bloodshot by the time we were done. I didn't dare attempt to take his picture!!
Thank you to everyone for sending encouraging words our way through blogging and face book. Thank you for your prayers. We would still love them!! As we continue to wait, I grow somewhat anxious to be honest and I yearn more and more to take in a child. I'm trying to be very aware to wait solely for God's timing. I absolutely do not want to run ahead of God. I just sometimes wish he were a faster runner! :-)
Have a blessed weekend!!
