Registering is just something I find awkward anyway, and we were dragging our feet about it. We used a handy dandy compilation of lists from friends and people we trust...and baby blogs that I
The lists we used included:
So, we went with the "standard" Babies R Us registry, though I want to vom every time I go in that store, because really, it's easy and all in one place. The lady was super ridiculous about going over all these rules and crap with us, and I wanted to look at her and say, "We are competent, we did research before coming in, and frankly I could care less about how many diapers you think we should register for Diane. Give us the scanner gun and let us get to work." But, I am nice, so I didn't. I just smiled and nodded.
Other than that we are doing a PB registry, for my glider mostly (10% off? yes please.) and we are doing a Wishpot registry. The Wishpot registry is for all the cute things I see on Etsy or Amazon that I love and can't fine elsewhere (and our crib as I refuse to register at walmart.com thankyouverymuch) - or when we can find better prices/colors than what BRU offers...oh and cloth diapers! Yay for cloth diapering.
I also figure that if I register for clothes, at all (and I know that most people recommend against it, I know, I get it) I should direct people to other options than the yellow with giraffe prints that are available everywhere lately. How did giraffes become the unisex symbol for babies? Weird.
In any case, I am super relieved that we are on our way to being done with this, though I have so.many.baby.items swirling in my head. Thank goodness you can manipulate these things online. Not that that's what I do at work...that's clearly time for writing these blog posts.

...and it is so weird that we are really purchasing things for a BABY. To come LIVE with us. FOREVER.
