Registering, decorating, and growing!

It's been a busy week for Lil G and me!

On Saturday the hubs and I fortified ourselves with massive burritos from Chiptole and then headed into Babies R Us, ready to register. I had a check list and all my notes from Baby Bargains and various online reviews. I had snacks and a bottle of water. I was ready to go.
Hours later, I nearly dropped the scan gun on the registry desk. It was a marathon! Not only did we have to get through the 100+ aisles, but in most I had to explain to DH what the item was for and why we needed it or didn't need it. I know next to nothing about bottle nipples. Explaining the various sizes and shapes to my husband - somewhere between hilarious and embarrassing.

But we did it, and Lil G has his wish list of goods ready to go.

After we got home, DH started work on the new guestroom as the old one will now be the nursery. While he primed and worked on baseboards, I played on planning the room out. I got our crib bedding all picked out and ordered, and have started picking some art work and other details. I was so impressed with my progress I put together a little inspiration board, a la Candice Olsen. Whatcha think? (you can click the pic for a larger view)

After all that, I had DH take our weekly pic on the porch. It wasn't until I saw this pic that I realized Lil G and I have been doing some serious growing this week. Enjoy the tummy!
