So I have been so consumed by everything. I mean, sorting through shower gifts, putting things away deciding what clothes to pack up until later, changing sizes so they correspond with the season...you know that kind of stuff. I also had a million and one thank you notes to write and send off. Oh yeah and of course I have been harassing my husband to put together the baby furniture and make more progress on the many projects we have undertaken to get this room done. It doesn't look like it but we have made a lot of progress.
The room a month or so ago.
We still needed to deconstruct our closet and move our stuff.
We removed our headboard to find damage to the wall from old shelving.
But at least we had the changing table together.
Not so much an after but more so of a what it looks like now.
This was after the storm of shower gifts hit the room.
So we moved some things around and shoved shower gifts onto the changing table. Put the crib and glider together. Then we dealt with the nightmare of a storage scenario we have with our things. Baby TJ can have unlimited belongings but we will be yard selling most of our things by the end of the month. I figure my clothes will be outdated by next winter season and I will be 28 and some one's mom, so most of it can go to someone else. However, I am not letting go of my shoes.
Anywho,in the next month we will be focused on getting the house ready, that means our new room (in the loft), the baby's room (in our old room)and the kitchen which I am sure he will take over with the various bottles, pump accessories and whatever else. We also have to do the whole education deal breastfeeding, childbirth and new parent classes. Then there is the fun but essential stuff such as belly pictures, belly cast and plenty of rest and relaxation. I am not sure how we will fit it all into 10 weeks but as long as we don't skimp on the fun stuff, I am pretty sure we will be fine.
I have been making soups and other hearty dishes to put in the freezer. We have also found some great low sodium, low fat prepared foods from Trader Joe's which will make life easy for us as well. I have written a birth plan, started packing the hospital bag and set up an interview with a pediatrician. Another important task is to find a Christmas outfit for TJ. Random I know.
Forgot to add my most important accomplishment....got a haircut.
