I feel like this time around, though, I want to limit the unnecessary items and keep things simple. Clutter has become my enemy lately, and I'd love to avoid wasting money on things I don't really need or won't use. I think that's one thing that's different from the other times I've prepared for a baby, and it may just come with age. No need to buy out Babies R Us--just give me good, quality, lasting products that I will love and I will be good to go. I may buy a new crib or just paint my old one, I will be reusing Olivia's crib bedding, which I still love, and I have a swing and a pack-and-play left over as well. Other than that, everything else needs to be bought. Yikes! I've never had a baby carrier or a sling, so I would love to try both of those products out this time around. I've already bought a couple prints for the walls and I know the large sheepskin that's kind of extra in my bedroom right now will be perfect in her room. These are some of the items on my registries...

It was definitely an interesting experience figuring out what I wanted for this baby and what I would register for. It's been so long since my last baby that I feel like I'm new at everything, even though it's my fourth go-around. I feel like I might forget something or not do enough research and get the wrong thing. Overall it's been fun, with the exception of the stroller. With that being such a large purchase and such a critical one, I've spent way too much time looking online and reading reviews and I'm still nowhere near a final decision. I just love how much soft, organic cotton there is out there now and so many cool alternatives for plastic. When my kids were babies it was a miracle to find a cotton blanket among all the polyester stuff out there!
