landon and i are right in the midst of registering for ellie. we have a shower on dec. 3 (SO excited), and we're registering at pottery barn kids, target and requesting gift cards from ikea. i wasn't going to have pottery barn, but it's the place i found the sheets i want. and when i got to looking... man, they have some great stuff. there is a lot on that registry. really, besides the sheets, anything i get there will be a super bonus. it's all frilly and absolutely fantastic, but far from essential. i let myself have a little fun because most everything that comes from me for ellie is going to have to be essential. a poor mama makes that the way things have to be. anyway, we're going to register at target this morning for the more practical (read: boring...just kidding) things like strollers, car seats, bottles and baby nail clippers. all of her furniture will comes from ikea ($139 crib, hello!) so that's why we want gift cards there. the blanket and pillow for her nursery (not in the crib when she's in it) is what's shown here. it's the basis for her nursery and is also from ikea. i really hope it turns out beautiful. my little princess deserves a palace of nursery. i'm going to do my best to make it the way a queen would for her child, only on a pauper's budget.
i can't wait to watch you sleep, my angel ellie.
