Today I did something I didn't think I'd ever have to  do again. Register for baby gifts!  There's just this window in your life where you register for your wedding and babies and then you're finished.   I thought I was finished.  Never say never, eh? 

Anyway, some friends asked me to register somewhere so they would know what we need.  Strangely enough, I still have a lot of baby stuff seven though I was not planning for another child.   All of my baby stuff was in the back of my attic and we just hadn't cleaned that part out, yet. 

I found I needed a few things so it was actually pretty fun to go and register for those.    BUT the funnest (is that a word?) part of registering was doing with my older two kids!

I let them pick out some cute toys and outfits and they really enjoyed that.  They used the little register gun to scan the items.  They had so much fun and it's a joy to involve them in the planning of a new baby.  I do find having a baby with older kids to be pretty cool.  They listen to my belly, talk to him and really are so excited to have a new baby in the house.  

We also looked at paint colors for the baby's room.  Of course, now we have new paint colors picked out for EVERYONE'S room and a little competition of whose room will be painted second to the baby's.

Sibling rivalry is alive and well,  even with a baby on the horizon.

I know I'm super late in commenting but it's amazing how much new stuff is out there compared to 5/6 years ago!
