Cribs, strollers and...skulls?

On Saturday, Drew and I decided to venture out on our first baby shopping trip.  Renata and others rave about Great Beginnings in Gaithersburg and I wanted to see what all the fuss was about.  I, of course, brought along my new Canon point-and-shoot. :)

This store is freaking huge.  Huge and inundated with pregnant women.  I felt a little like an impostor since I'm not really showing.  Needless to say, if you would like to be overwhelmed at the thought of having a child, I would highly recommend going.

We did have surprisingly a lot of fun, and even picked out Drew's super manly diaper bag (who would carry this?!  What are you feeding your child?  POISON?!):

We made a day of it and had a leisurely Tex-mex lunch, which is the only type of food that has not attacked my gag reflex thus far. :)

A good day indeed! We haven't actually purchased anything yet (though I do have my first official purchase in mind!), but I'm sure this isn't our last visit to Great Beginnings. Oh my.

I want to find this place now. lol It looks like so much fun. Or maybe it's because Drew is having so much fun in the pics. :) Everytime I walk into Target I want to buy all the baby stuff, but I'm afraid. I feel like I'm jinksing (sp?) something. I'm still afraid my mind is playing a cruel joke on me and there really isn't a baby in there. Once I feel it move I will feel alot better. lol
