Yep. This is my current view! I’m 31 weeks and counting…hooray!
I have THE longest list to get done before this baby comes, it’s ridiculous. We’ve just spent almost a month trying to get everyone well, and we’re finally here…knock on wood, cross your fingers, etc., etc., so now I can hopefully move on and start tackling the list. Since this baby was a surprise, and we had gotten rid of pretty much everything, the list is even longer than usual. It’s kind of making this list and planning girl NUTS! I also feel like when I had my other kids, the list was shorter at this point. Or, maybe it’s just the loss of brain cells that always seem to disappear when I’m pregnant that’s making me think that way. Or, perhaps it’s because I’m busier with more kids, I have a hubby in the middle of busy season (he’s a CPA for one of the Big 4), and…I’m just not making up my mind very quickly these days. I swear, I have been looking at bedding for the last 3 months, and I’ve been so wishy-washy about it, which I never am. Regardless, I need to get it together, NOW!!!
What’s left on my to-do list?
-buy a carseat and stroller (although I do know what I want!)
-buy crib bedding ( I think I have this one finally figured out, too)
-finish the boys’ bunk beds so they can finally vacate the cribs…and I can have one for the baby!
-wash the few baby girl items I still have…get those yucky formula stains out!
-buy onesies, layette gowns, socks, diapers, blankets…you know, the basics :)
-decide on a diaper bag
-get a “coming home” outfit
-register at the hospital, and take a tour (new hospital this time around!)
-pack my bag!
-make cute little things to pass out after she’s born (will share that in a few weeks!)
-find a newborn swing on craigslist?
-deep clean all rooms, clean outside windows, get playset done outside, and a few other house projects
-make freezer meals
-finish my current list of craft projects
So, it’s time for the spreadsheet, lol. All of this is going in tonight, with times, dates, and deadlines assigned…this girl is getting serious about being ready for this baby girl to come!
At least we have a name.
I think. :)
