So, more of my New mommmy questions... What things should I register for. I am guessing that Kaylynn will have an abundance of toys without my asking for them. But, are there other things, that I don't need to put on my registry?

**Everyone made a valid point that she is going to have to remind people how to spell it regardless of the spelling. So we are sticking with the original and incorporating both full names.

How many bottles do I need to have for the baby? I am not sure if it makes any difference that He/She will be with Aunt Tam one day a week and with Shari (mother in law) one day a week. I am praying that I am able to breastfeed when I am home, and bottle feed when the baby is with the grandmothers. It would be nice if the baby learns to go back and forth, from what I have studied, that is possible, it just takes some teaching! I will be home for two months, so it will give me a little time with just breastfeeding. All that to say - how many bottles do I need to have? And, do I need to get special containers to hold extra milk? Any other tips and helps would be great!

I mean, I can figure out a few things for myself... The baby needs a crib, car seat, stroller... What else? What kind of bottles am I supposed to get? Do I really need a boppy? These are questions that I am sure you can answer - when I come up with more, I will let you all know!
Love you all...

I would say almost half done, but as we all know having the baby is not the end - its the beginning. Max and I were talking about how amazingly fast these few months have gone - and how much faster the next few will go, no doubt. And in two weeks we find out if we are having Kaylynn or Magnus.
I had decided after I was through with my wedding dress to use the material for christening gowns for my children. So, I started sewing the christening gown for the baby - actually all I have done is the bonnet. I was amazed at how long it takes to destroy a wedding dress. I had to take all the pieces apart and then wash them. I cannot believe how dirty it was, actually when I remember all the tramping around at the park, railroads, western state and the waterfront - it is pretty impressive that it was only that dirty!
When I showed Max the christening gown picture he let me know how adamant he was that no boy (should we have a boy) of his is going to be wearing a dress! I tried to explain that it is fine for a baby to wear a dress regardless of gender - but he was having none of that. I was forced to pick out a nice romper pattern to ease his mind. I have decided to make a gown and romper, that way we will have whatever we need now - and in the future.
With that done there are only a few other things that we have to do to get ready for the baby. We still have to get the room ready which we are going to do on the last week/weekend of March. I am out of classes that week so I will have a little time! Hopefully that gives us enough time to figure out what to do with the "computer room" stuff!
