What's left?
 
What's left on your list to-do? When do you plan to be completely done getting ready?

I dont think I will ever be completely ready!

I am going to buy a curtain rod and ask the guys at home depot how to hang a curtain. I am tired of bf not doing it. Other than that, and just cleaning, I think we are "ready".

That's how I end up doing a lot of stuff LOL - I'm tired of waiting so I learn how myself. Good luck, it's easy! When I did my curtains (replacing a houseful of miniblinds with curtains), I started doing them myself and Tim saw and after I did like 2 rooms helped :lol:

My goal is to be mostly ready by 37 weeks, so July 31st.

I have yet to do:
- Buy bassinet/travel crib/cosleeper (ok, first I might want to decide which one...)
- Buy 1-3 dozen more diapers (can get by with 1, would prefer 2 or 3)
- Pack baby's birth center bag
- Pack my birth center bag
- Pack the water-broke-away-from-home bag for the van
- Finish baby's blanket (still need to topstitch)

It just occurred to me that I'll be 37 weeks on July 31st. I was thinking I had more time than that! :lol:

The rest of it can fit in where it does.

Mostly just laundry. We have some piles laying around that I would like to tackle now so they're not bothering me once Nova is here, but it's not really necessary so I'm slacking on it. Also a bit of cleaning would be good, but that's more to get ready for the visiting in-laws than for the baby.

Oh, and get the car seat base installed correctly in the car! I keep forgetting about it because it's still in the car, it's just not secure enough in the center seat so we need to move it over.

Aw jeez, thanks for reminding me guys! I still need to wash the carseat stuff and all the clothes/blankets/diapers! Sheesh, what would I do without you ladies?

I totally understand what you're saying about the coming home outfit... just this past weekend I bought a onsie and decided that might be the one :lol: It has a monkey on it and in orange says "Introducing Me". Luckily for me, all the outfits I have picked match the receiving blanket I've yet to finish :lol:

Don't worry about your crib... I've yet to get one too :lol: Well, we have a crib, but I need a new bassinet. Tim put the old one out in the garage and a family of mice moved in :(

I'm definitely having Tim shampoo the carpets this week while he's off work! Of course I have to teach him how to do it first, but...

There are too many to mentions. I'm so dread to do it all today.

Re: What's left?
 
The nursery is complete but i still need to do a last-min trip to tesco for nappies, a few more muslins and maybe another fitted sheet for the moses basket. I want to get all the laundry sorted so there is no backlog, stock up on pet food, loo roll, bread and milk, and clean out the chinchillas - oh and pay the fricking sky bill as its just been cut off...AGAIN. I cant be expected to remember everything!
