Three weeks from today, I’ll be snuggling our new little princess and I cannot wait!!
So far, everything’s gone fairly well the past few weeks. I did fall a couple of weeks ago but everything was fine thankfully. She’s still a girl, her lungs seem to be working like they should (hopefully that means a screaming baby – never in a million years did I think I’d pray for a baby who screams!) and she’s growing bigger each week.
My current dilemma is figuring out what to take for her to wear home from the hospital. The boys never really fit into newborn sized clothes. I’ve got some but not many since I don’t think she’ll be in them long either. Right now I’ve got newborn and zero to three month sized stuff set out. There are also warm and “cool” weather options to choose from. When I brought Corbin home, it was the middle of July so it was an easy choice – something very light weight. Carter was a little trickier. He came home just before Thanksgiving but it wasn’t really cold that day so he just wore a light outfit. Since we’re in the South now and it’s already been in the 70s and 80s, who knows what it will be like in three weeks.
The “nursery” (her corner of the master bedroom) is just about finished. Another shelf from Target for some storage and I think we’ll be all set for the time being. Our local consignment sale is this weekend so maybe I’ll find something awesome there too. She’s also already taken over a corner of the living room with her pack and play, rocking chair, bouncy seat and swing.
I’m checking things off my list and trying to plan things out over the next couple of weekends to make sure I get some things done before this little one arrives. I’d like to get the house cleaned up, do some grocery shopping and get the car seat in the van. Hopefully then I’ll have less to do and can just sit around for a couple of days at home.
Not only am I due this month, hubby’s cousin is due in about a week with their first baby and a co – worker’s wife is two weeks ahead of me so there are lots of babies on the horizon.
Three weeks seems like years away but hopefully the time passes quickly and it will be here very soon!
