give me a headache. I understand that the idea behind the brightly-colored toys is to stimulate the baby and interest them in playing with the toy, but looking over several pages of toys online has made my eyes go cross eyed in pain from the colors and the inaneness of the designs. I think I'm going to start making some soft toys for Baby Shoe. And try to only buy toys that don't make me want to throw them against the wall.
And just so you know, I added some links to a baby registry we've started...and they are a work in progress. How are you supposed to know everything that you need for a baby? I've been looking at some checklists online and trying to figure it out. In order to look at the registry though, you'll have to search for us (my one security precaution).
And the REI one is mostly Jason's wish list (I think), except that right now it has one baby-related item and more will be added as we go.
