But, believe it or not, Christopher and i did in fact, sit down, uninterrupted and write out our 2011 goals. I just haven't talked all that much about them here. Not sure how much i will either. As they happen maybe? We shall see.
Anyway, one of them is to get registered actually. I feel like we are in "the zone" of being matched. The national domestic adoption wait time is 18 months, our agency average in 2008 was 5-14 months. (We signed on in 2009, so we were given the 08 statistic). So, at 15 months, we feel like we just want to get it done. I know all hell is going to break loose if we have to up and leave and travel and trying to get settled, etc. At least if we take care of it now, we have time to think and concentrate and do it the right way.
I am also looking for advice. We have the entire nursery pretty much set. With the exception of the interior of the closet, we are all set. So, in my eyes, we don't need that much - which is the thought behind registering at myregistry.com. I feel like there are a handful of things at various places and this way, we can add what we want in one spot.
Also, in addition to our stroller, an extra pack and play for my office, the carseats and bases and our video monitor, what else should i be registering for?
I can't breastfeed, so no pump needed. I am just going to try a few bottles? Rumor has it our baby might be finicky about them. i can't stop up on formula, so what else is there?
We are heavily leaning towards cloth diapers, so i feel like this is something we could register for. Otherwise, i'm utterly overwhelmed and let me tell you, i perseverate over pretty much everything. So this could be a process.
Any advice would be great! Thank you!
