As a celebratory activity with help from Hillary, I (we, Mike was there in spirit) officially registered! It was a little weird - primarily 'cause I kept thinking of what people were thinking of this visibly non-pregnant women registering.
Have a great weekend!!

I used my digital camera and didn't realized holding the camera vertical would freeze it that way.
Pictures below of the room too! I think it's pretty functional now and really ready. We have one wall that is majorly bare...maybe we'll actually put something baby on it!

I guess I'm just to lazy to straighten.

The post is two fold...
Part one: Do all parenting books say, and/or, do you parents out there believe a new infant should only be held, fed, soothed, etc. by the parents the first week? Also, it says the first three weeks there should be very little commotion around the infant. Nearly every piece of literature I've read that pertains to bonding with an adopted infants states this. My question being; is this practice specific to adopted infants? Or in other words have others read that? To me it seems a good practice for all who want to bond with their infant. Like I said most of my reading is geared to the adopted infant so I'm just wondering...
Part two: Since that is what we've read and will do everything possible to enhance our bond please don't get offended if we disappear for a couple of weeks after the arrival. I know most new parents do anyway because of the exhaustion but we will probably be a little more hyper sensitive to our bonding - that being said...3 weeks!! That's a long time...
