I debated about posting this invitation because I didn’t want to offend anyone, but many of you have asked about our local (Texas) shower and baby registry. Here is the information:

A dear friend is hosting a baby shower in my honor Saturday, October 26 at First United Methodist Church in Joshua — located between Burleson and Cleburne on Highway 174. If you are in the area, I hope you’ll be able to attend. Not because I expect you to bring a gift, but because I’d really like to see you. Plus, my mom will be visiting from Kentucky and she’d like to meet the folks I’m constantly talking about! If you’re insistent about a gift, visit our registry at Amazon.com. We registered at Babies R’Us but those items have been purchased.

Things we HAVE:

CLOTHES —> Kamden has outfits in sizes up to 2T.
BLANKETS —> some even handmade!
BIBS
Changing Pad and organizer
Activity Mat
Boppy Pillow
High chair

Things we’d LIKE TO HAVE:

GEAR —> Pack’n’Play, rocker swing, sound machine, and breast pump
FEEDING —> breast milk storage bags
LINENS –> sheets for crib and Pack’N’Play
DIAPERS —> Pampers Swaddlers and Sensitive wipes
SAFETY —> digital thermometer and nail clippers
GIFT CARDS —> there are things we’ll need later down the road

If you are currently pregnant, I highly recommend visiting THE WISE BABY. This blog has been INVALUABLE to me for all things baby-related, including product reviews, putting together a registry, and general FAQ’s about pregnancy and perspectives from real moms. This is not a paid endorsement, I simply enjoy Lindsey’s blog and appreciate the work she and her team are doing.

For you more experienced moms (and dads), what items (include brand names if necessary!) did you like or use the most? What item(s) did you not like or use very often?
