Stuff for babies

Posted: March 26th, 2009 | Author: | 3 Comments »

Some of you have asked to see a registry/list of things we need and want/etc. We did put a list together, and it’s here:
We chose Amazon because they have a cool new wishlist feature that allows you to add items from any website, not just theirs. If you choose to purchase something that isn’t sold by Amazon, it will simply redirect you to the necessary website, while keeping track of what has been purchased through the wish list so that we don’t end up with, say, three car seat bars for our stroller. It seems like a pretty cool way to do things, and I think it’ll be pretty easy to use.

We’re very grateful if you do want to buy us stuff, but we think of this list more as a shopping/wish list for us than a list of things we expect other people to buy. We have acquired some baby items already, which is where we hope this list will come in particularly handy – it will let you, and us, know what we still need.  (On that note: we do live in a small apartment, drive a small car, and we’re not settled into our current living space forever. For that reason, we want to avoid having a lot more stuff than is necessary. Please keep that in mind before buying any enormous stuffed animals or toys noisy enough to annoy us *and* our neighbors. ;))

Also possibly worth noting: Ryan’s birthday is coming up. He has mentioned that he’d rather receive baby stuff than normal presents this year, in case you are someone who was planning to buy him a gift. :)

    Absolutely! I haunt the used/sale room at the baby store when I go there, and scan through the craigslist stuff a few times a week…so yeah, used is generally fine. :)
