Helping with her registry was a lot of fun, and it was a nice preview for when I finally got to browse baby gear for myself again. The trip brought back a lot of memories, and got me excited to do it all over again. Of course, at the time we were in the midst of our fertility concerns so I wasn't sure how it was all going to play out. I was so happy for all of the people we saw in the store that day, but there was a little tinge of worry that we might not find ourselves back in that position as soon as we hoped. But for one day it was fun to celebrate with someone and be the voice of experience.
Here we are a year later. The baby we were shopping for will be a year old in a couple more months. And, of course, not only did I get pregnant, but our baby is already a month old! It's quite a shift in the matter of a year, and I am so grateful that we were able to make it happen that quickly. I got to do a mini-registry of my own a few months ago, and while it didn't really get used for much more than organizing my own wants and needs, it was a fun little project to do, particularly in light of having helped with that registry a year ago. It was a pleasant reminder of the excitement of a first baby, and it made me that much more thankful to be able to do it again the second time around.
That day stands out in my mind as a great day, thanks to the fun we had and the gorgeous weather we came back out into. Hard to believe it was a year ago already, but what a year it has been!
And now, as promised, a few photos. I got a bit behind, but here are the highlights of the last couple weeks. We spend a lot of time hanging out on the couch, in case you couldn't tell...
