Going shopping...

Lance and I spent 3 hours in a baby store on Thursday. Talk about the blind leading the blind!! What the hell is a lap pad and do I need 4-6 of them, which is what their registery guide suggests?? By the end, I think Lance was scanning anything that was pink and/or purple! Yikes! Lance's family is VERY excited to get buying as they are already looking at our registery for guidance. That is so nice but wait until we have more on there than just a stroller and bouncer! At least they're looking at the registery and not just buying things all willy nilly!

So for those that have baby experience.... what are your most essential items? Things that you couldn't live without? I'm sure we'll buy WAY more than what we need but I don't want to miss out on those essential items that will make our lives a lot easier.

Today I'm off to buy my Grandma a birthday gift. She'll be 89 tomorrow. She decided a couple of weeks ago that she needs to do everything to stretch her life out now that she's going to be a great-grandma so she's started exercising. Now my Gram is very with it mentally but her body is failing. She has to walk with a walker but still gets around pretty well. So she's exercising everyday. What a woman!!

Lance is off skiing with the boys. Hopefully he's having a blast and getting some well deserved and needed R & R.

I have a post from Lee but I'm still trying to figure out how to transfer his graph into blogger. It's not working well but this post is absolutely hilarious!! I was shaking and laughing so hard while reading it. Completely inaccurate, in my opinion but funny as hell!

Whatever you do, don't get a ton of receiving blankets. I have a drawer full of unused ones. Jillian loves to be swaddled but will work herself out of any receiving blanket swaddle. Instead buy a Miracle Blanket. Love it!

And check out Craigs List for whatever you don't get at the shower. There are some seriously good deals to be had.
