So much to get you caught up on, but alas I’ve been using the time I would normally devote to blogging to start reading baby books on exactly how I’m supposed take care of a small infant. After learning I’m already 50% effaced on Wednesday at 35 weeks pregnant (btw did I ever post any baby photos yet?),
(here he is punching and kicking me at the same time)
James and I quickly had a small “I’m not ready” panic attack. I went to target and got the last essential baby stuff I needed and I have almost finished packing my hospital bag.
I’m in total love with my diaper bag.
I packed for photos (just in case there is actually a competent photographer there and I end up liking some of the newborn images) my old stuffed lamb that I’m hoping Hunter loves as much as I did growing up. Cleaned out the car seat bases, which we got from my awesome sister. I’m not sure if it was chocolate or poo, but there was dark stuff in both bases and the actual car seat itself. So I got out our new Black Birch all-natural Lemon Cleaner spray and went to town.
They cleaned up really easily and I just watched a video online on how to install, so I think I can do that part of taking home the child. I’ve got clean sheets and a clean room for guests.
Our bedroom is semi cleaned.
Not much you can do when you have a stack of marble hanging out,
but James did add new wall mounted reading lights for me. This comes in handy with my “Baby Wise” and “Baby Whisper” books.
Dogs have gotten some attention.
The baby room is a disaster right now.
This equals very high blood pressure for me. James wanted to add in some new trim in the closet, so everything I organized came right out.
The chest we had in the family room for storing all the computer junk, has been repurposed for a changing table.
Although you wouldn’t know it from this pic.
And bathroom….I’ll post on Monday, as we have tile people coming this weekend!
And did I mention we also need to replace our water heater? Yeah, the beast went out on us yesterday. Cause you know, when stress rains IT FREAKING POURS!
