My Top Registry Items

Good morning! The picture above (captured by none other than Bryan himself) is a BTS shot from our maternity shoot this weekend and I CAN’T FREAKING WAIT to see the actual pictures! If you need a maternity photographer, go check out Aimee Hamilton because she is seriously amazing.

Now, let’s talk registry items. I swear that I have been living in a black hole of setting up nursery items, a never-ending pile of laundry and buying/exchanging things that we still needed. Creating a nursery and getting a registry together is both super fun and extremely overwhelming. I had no idea what a travel system was, how many bottles to add or if I needed to buy a dresser and use it as a changing pad stand or vice versa. I mean HOW THE HECK CAN ANYONE KEEP UP?! Well, unless your entire day is dedicated to learning all there is about baby gear then you can’t keep up. The good news is that you can, however, learn along the way. My advice to anyone planning for a baby is to not get caught up in the small things such as how many washcloths to add because you will likely get more than enough and you can always exchange things.

Here are some of my top registry items and things that I know I’ll love… or at least I hope I do! Enjoy!
