I was so upset at the realization that I was not going to see Anna in 3d! And I felt bad that my parents had driven up just for the occasion. Once we returned to our house, my mom suggested we go to Babies R' Us. Eric and I have been meaning to go in and start a baby registry, but have not been able to find the time. So the four of us set off for Babies R' Us and it ended up being such a fun afternoon and such a blessing to have my mom and dad help us make decisions. My mom made suggestions about things that I had never even thought of! We were able to add items to our registry and feel confident that we were being wise in our choices... Thanks Mom!
My dad was very enthusiastic about this outing as well. He splurged on a few outfits for Anna as well as the froggy mobile that we attached to her crib. Below is a picture of Anna's "nursery" area in our bedroom. Dr. Sears, a respected obstetrician, recommends babies to sleep in the parent's room for 6 months! According to him, studies have shown that babies who sleep in the parent's room are less likely to have complications and are at a much lower risk for SIDS. Since we don't have a choice, we were glad to hear this news!
