Gifts for the babe

About a month ago my husband and I began our registry for all the stuff we will need for Baby Miller. Wow, do babies need a lot of stuff! While my husband was excited, I think he felt a little overwhelmed by all that our tiny one will require in the first year of life. Here is a glimpse at how he felt about the experience: 

Because we our so excited to become parents, throughout the pregnancy we have bought items here and there that we think the baby will like or want. Here is some of what we have bought so far:

We are going with a jungle theme for the nursery so Matt bought the monkey on the left. I then bought the monkey on the right when I saw it wearing the same outfit that my childhood teddybear wore. What a coincidence!

We now live in Washington but as native Oregonians, our child will know its roots 🙂

My husband, the planner, wants to make sure we have everything we need for when Baby arrives in March. Even though we are going to use cloth diapers the majority of the time, we wanted to have disposable for the first few weeks and for night time. With 216 diapers, I think we are off to a good start!

From friends and family we have been blessed to receive a number of items.


And recently my father-in-law refinished an old family dresser so it will look brand new for the baby.

In case you can’t tell, this baby is going to be truly spoiled 🙂

    Unfortunately A LOT of the baby’s clothes look like they are for boys. I hope they are returnable!
