Last Saturday, my parents invited my husband and I, as well as my mother-in-law, to come over for brunch and discuss baby shower plans. I was reluctant at first, feeling like perhaps it was still too early to plan for the baby shower, but eventually excitement outweighed worry. Much of the baby shower will still be a surprise to my husband and I, but since we want a guys and gals baby shower, our parents wanted a few ideas on what we have in mind before they take over the planning. After tossing around our ideas and writing up a few lists, we got a general idea of how it will all go. Hopefully we'll have a good turn out. The trick will be convincing the guys to come to a baby shower. But we're hoping that, by tempting them with a video game tournament, they'll show up.
After working out the baby shower plans, my husband and I decided to go and update our baby registry. Since the baby shower invitations will be going out in April, we figured we should update things now before our registry information is sent out. We had actually started the baby registry back when we were pregnant with Joey. We had tweaked it a few times online since then, but otherwise we still had a good foundation to work off of. It only took us a little over an hour to add on the last few things we really needed before we headed home. It was fun looking over all the baby stuff, especially now knowing that we're having a boy. The last time we had gone in to register, we didn't even know Joey was going to be a boy, so most of the things on our list were gender neutral. This time, we had the fun of adding on all the little boy stuff!
Once again, it felt weird to be planning for Andy's arrival. It still feels too early to be planning for it all and yet, at the same time, it's very exciting! Just another step closer to Andy being here!
