Quoting ℳommy to Kai♥:" That's kinda how I look at it. If someone insists on bringing a gift, that's fine. But I love just being around friends and family and having a good time. Celebrating the baby."
I dont know anyone (myself included) who wouldnt want to bring a cute little new baby and a family who are expanding a little something.
But my circle of peeps dont do registries...we all are the type of people who get what we want/need and the extra's are exactly that, extra
I think its brutally tacky to go to a store and check off things YOU need and then tell people to go get them
