Very out of character for me, I didn’t get a picture of it, but Barry and I registered a couple of weeks ago! We debated it for awhile…is it too early, are we crazy, etc. but finally decided to go ahead and register for the basics and then we can add to it once we get our referral. I am a planner planner planner and although God has taught me over the past few years that I can’t plan everything, things like this that I do have control over, I must plan for.

I will say, I felt the teensiest bit silly registering, obviously not pregnant. Luckily, I don’t really care what people think of me most of the time, so it didn’t bother me, but it was a little weird. They do not make baby registries easy if you are adopting. For instance, we had to put an expected arrival date. We obviously have no clue, so we just randomly had to pick a date. At least Babies R Us had a place to check if you were adopting…that’s gotta count for something.

And THEN last weekend Babies R Us had their furniture on sale 20% off, so we went ahead and purchased our baby furniture! We decided on a convertible crib since that will accommodate our child at whatever age that they come to us. And it was delivered today! Look how pretty…

IMG_0571Ohhh, ahhh. The rest of the pieces were special order so it will be a bit longer before we get those. It’s so exciting getting a few things in place for our baby whenever he or she arrives! :)


  1. WOW!! I love it!! Congratulations on registering!! :)

  2. I remember making a prenatal visit at the pediatrician once we had our referral and some pictures. The doctor walked in and looked at me and said, "You are either here really early or you are adopting!" That very same day we met Dr. Mas, she received her referral for her little girl in Guatemala! I am sure none of us will every forget that day!

  3. Beautiful furniture! Yay for nursery coming together! :-)

  4. As a fellow planner, I think its great that you have registered for your necessities. And that crib is gorgeous! Have a blessed Thanksgiving!
