Freelance Friday - Baby Registries
Today, I would like to ask you - the readers - your opinion on something that is very near (in time and importance) to my heart. My husband and I will be adopting our first child - a newborn girl - due at the end of February. We are uber-excited and are starting all the preparations for her arrival.
Here's the dilemma: as we are looking to register, we are finding there are HUNDREDS of items that all seem to cry "necessity" and some that we've never heard of but that sound pretty impressive. Then we stop and remember that babies really only need very few things: clothing, a place to sleep, and food (including bottles to give food) - and of course, lots of love. Oh, and diapers and wipes!
In our day and age, there are also other "necessary" items, such as a car seat. But as parents out there in cyberspace, could you answer these two questions for us?
1. Other than the above mentioned, what would you say are the absolutely basic necessary items for a newborn baby?
2. What is the one item that you wouldn't call "basic necessity" but that you can't live without?
Please comment away! I look forward to what you have to say!
