I have finally got most of the things I need for baby & have them ready. I only have 2 or 3 small things I'd like to get, but nothing that is necessary. I got all of my cloth diapers prepped & ready to go. I have all the clothes washed. Bought pack n play sheets, changing pad cover & waterproof cover & got them washed & ready. Got my hospital bag packed, now I need to decide on what the baby is going to wear home & get his stuff ready. Other than that, I feel pretty good about it.
Now I need to make a list of household cleaning I need to get done & do it. Not necessary for baby to come home but it would be nice. Not that it won't get dirty again with 3 kids already! I've been going to shampoo my carpets for more than a month but I have been so busy with the garden that I haven't had the energy. Hopefully soon.
Is everyone else feel ready yet?
Some days I feel super ready, and others I feel SO unprepared. Just posted about it the other day. I'm pretty sure we have just about everything we need, would really like to get one more baby gate but its not a complete necessity. Oh and the travel system and pack n play are still in their boxes.... so those need to get taken care of. Other then that, I *think* we're good... hopefully lol
getting there, my mother is coming over today from England (this is her first visit....ever!) and we are going to spend the next few days finishing the nursery and getting the last few bits i need for Noah.
The list as it stands now-
car bits - mirror, sun shield, baby on board sign
bedding - cot bed sheets and mattress protector
nursery - nursing chair, blackout blinds, lampshade, fleece blanket, bookshelf
misc - changing bag, parasol for pram, booties, 3 more muslins and another nursing bra
I have the essentials, there are a few more things I'd like to get in place beforehand but I don't have the energy at weekends right now so they will only get done IF I get a little bit of time after finishing work before the baby arrives.
I don't feel ready at all. If she came today though, we could make due. I just feel like we still have SO much to do. The nursery isn't done, and I feel like my whole house is a mess because I've been so tired lately! Oh well, hopefully most of it will get done soon! I have until almost the end of August.
