Baby Registry Success!

just a quick note to let everyone know in advance that chad and i went shopping and registering today, and i have posted links to our baby registries on my sidebar for anyone who wishes to buy us sweet baby gifts (which will be much appreciated, you can be sure). chad's mom has already gone a wee bit crazy with the baby clothes buying (chad came home with 14 baby outfits, 9 or 10 bibs, and 2 or 3 wee baby hats yesterday), and soon the in-laws will be purchasing our crib (even though for now it remains on the registry - this is so they buy the one we want and yet do not have to spend tons of $).

when we registered at babies-r-us they gave us a sweet free gift box with samples of diapers, wipes, and creams, as well as a free bottle and pacifier, which is really nice.

ok, i got the point across - we have registered for baby stuff. no pressure to buy things or anything, though.

Wedding registries, now baby registries. They make sense. It makes gift giving easy.

Have you tried Amazon.com's baby registry for long-distance gifts?

i hadn't really thought about setting up other registries (seems like i'd end up with a lot of repeats that way) since you can order most of the stuff i registered for at both babies r us and walmart online and have it shipped to the (non-public) registry address. works basically the same way as an amazon wish list, i guess. i did the same thing for our wedding, and some people ordered things online and had them shipped directly to us. perhaps i will look into it.
