I haven’t been on Nameberry too much recently, because I’ve been a little preoccupied with some pretty big life changes: we’re moving out of state in a week, aaand I just found out I’m pregnant! To make a long story short, I found out at about 2:30 [name_f]Wednesday[/name_f] morning when I took a pregnancy test and it came back positive.
So because I am both very excited and a perfectionist, I have already begun working on a registry list. I know that baby showers are somewhat debated on here, but at this point I mostly view it as my shopping checklist for things we’ll need.
The past couple years, my husband and I have been trying to adopt a minimalist philosophy, especially when it comes to our possessions, so I’ve been kind of overwhelmed with the volume of things that people say you need for a baby. I would like to keep our new baby items as streamlined as possible, but I also don’t want to overlook or cut out anything that I might regret later. So that’s where all you lovely readers come in! I’m really not looking for specific brand recommendations or anything like that, because I like to do the research on those things myself, but I’m hoping that people more experienced than myself at this will be able to spot both things that I should add and things that I might be able to remove from my list. We’re a little crunchier than the average couple, so please bear with me!
