I can’t believe I’m already 27 weeks along with my second child (name TBD). Just as with my first, at the same time, I feel like this is the longest pregnancy in history. The excitement is still there though!

I actually didn’t know if I would register at all when I first found out I was pregnant because I thought that we still had everything we needed from when Max was a baby. The more I thought about it though, the more I realized that I still needed some items with the arrival of this new baby.

I registered at Target when I was pregnant with Max and had a great experience so I was excited to go back!

Plus, friends and family want to shower you (pun intended) with gifts, whether you have an actual shower or not. My loved ones know that I don’t like clutter and that I’m always trying to declutter my home so registering for exactly what we want and need makes anything purchased perfect for the way we keep our house!
