Websites I Like

Highly recommended source for reviews on toys, books, video and software:

Breastfeeding and Parenting. Evidence-based information on breastfeeding and parenting issues:
A site for drugs in pregnancy:

DS is a community of cloth diapering moms sharing tips, experiences, and support in all aspects of parenting:

Cloth diaper supply shop, diapering care, basics and detergents list:

A "deal of the day" website for moms offering discounts on baby and maternity products:

Blog, consumer reviews, and "bonus material," including information about cribs, strollers, humidifiers, monitors, and all sorts of other baby gear. It goes with the book, which I highly recommend. They take NO advertising whatsoever. The writers believe that the no ad policy ensures objectivity:

Thank you Princess for giving me a lot of this information! If any of you know of any other good ones, let me know and I'll add them here.

Registry Information

It's very exciting to buy baby stuff! We've already started buying things, and friends and family have already bought things. So in case you are wondering about a registry, I thought I'd give you some information.

We're going with mostly bumGenius 4.0 (not 3.0) cloth diapers: (password is Josiah) Kelly's Closet often has coupons so ask me and I can check for you!

The picture shows our bedding, which we have changed from what we originally decided. We're now going with Mr and Mrs Pond. :) It's already arrived and I love it!

For everything else, we're registered at Walmart:

We will appreciate and love anything you want to give Josiah, but if you are looking for a guide, here it is!

Josiah Jordan Bakalchuck

It's official! We're having a boy. The ultrasound went great. Little Josiah is a wiggly thing but certainly proud to display his manliness. I couldn't tell what the heck I was looking at but the awesome ultrasound lady, Joanie, and Princess were both like "WOAH, HELLO! He's not shy!" That was the first thing everyone who knew what they were looking at saw.

Once again, all measurements were absolutely on target and perfect. 10 fingers, 10 toes, and everything measurable about the brain at this point totally flawless. So Josiah is perfectly average and perfectly perfect in every way, so far. :)

I know the 4D pics are a bit alien-ish at this time, but still, it's amazing to me how much he looks like a little human already.
