I did not register for any toys. That’s because I felt certain we’ll be given plenty of toys without asking for them. The ones we receive we will value because they are gifts.  But Chris and I are on the same page about toys.  We do not want a home overrun by toys.  This is partially for our sanity, and partially for our child.  We want her to truly appreciate the toys she has.  We also want her to learn to focus and develop her imagination, which we feel she can better do without the distraction of hundreds of toys that all blink and bling.  Finally, we just value craftsmanship, and want to carefully choose her toys for the care that went into making them.

We really are the optimistic first time parents, aren’t we?

We have this conversation.  And then Chris proceeds to buy lots and lots of (very adorable) toys for our girl 😉
