Starting Preparations for the Baby

This past weekend we started the baby registry at Babies R Us. Our registry number is 44542971 in case you want to check it out. We went there both Saturday and Sunday, and we still have things we need to pick out.

We're not only shopping for the baby, but we are also preparing the room. The nursery will be in the bedroom next to the master bedroom, and we've got it completely cleared out except for the bed, which we are going to get rid of soon. We're planning on painting, at the very least (VOC free paint, of course), and perhaps adding a chair rail, and maybe some sort of surface below the chair rail.

We started walking yesterday, because we want to make sure Natalia's got the endurance to have a baby. We're going to try to get out and walk 2 or 3 times a week from now on, as long as Natalia feels comfortable doing so.

Don't forget to place your bets at http://elkinsbaby.babypool.com.

As promised, here is a picture of Natalia today, at 23 weeks and 5 days.

Natalia, you look sooo cute! How exciting to be getting everything ready. Good for you for walking! That is important.

Good job on walking! It is really good to do that. Also, I am not sure if you already have this or not, but register for a humidifier....they are very nice to have for when little Bella (or whatever name you decide on) gets a stuff nose.
Anyway, that is one thing we had to get at midnight to help Linc breathe a little easier.
Anyway, great pictures and you are looking great!
