It has been kinda slow around here lately...partly due to the holidays, I'm sure. I was just wondering how everyone is doing in getting ready for the babies to come.
Are you ready? Have you done a lot of shopping? What do you have left to do?
I feel pretty close to being ready. I have all her stuff washed and put in her dresser and the co-sleeper assembled. We bought a stroller base for our carseat last week and my nursing bras are being shipped. We still need to assemble the crib in our room, the pack and play in the living room and pack my hospital bag. I want to get everything done, but don't want to be staring at empty baby stuff for weeks on end. I feel like it will only remind me of how much longer I have to go
Jen, I am with you! I am working on getting all the clothes and blankets washed and put away in the next few days and I have been debating on when to put the port-a-crib up because I don't want it to sit empty for so long. I think after next week we will be ready. I want to buy some more diapers and wipes and make a carseat blanket, but other than that, I think we are close.
Patricia, you are on top of things!
I have been focusing on getting my Christmas shopping done since Christmas is supposed to come first, but I have been nesting and trying to get things ready for baby at the same time.
We are getting pretty close to being set. When I told DH the other day how many days we have until 37 weeks (and that means an amnio/induction) he was saying how he didn't feel ready but couldn't say why. We have got a ton done this weekend though so I think he feels better now. Co-sleeper is set up, hospital bag is packed save for the last minute things, clothes are washed and put away, DH is salvaging some dressers we were given that we'll use for the kids.
We'd like to get a mirror for the car (that goes on the headrest) as we still have DD's up and we love it. Other then that we just need some more blankets or burp cloths and I'd like to pick up a car seat cover (the kind that just sits over it) for the cold weather. We don't have a changing table set up but we never used one with DD. We have the space we're just not going crazy spending $ atm.
I need to get the baby's room ready. I need to take out Hunter's toys from there, wash the walls and floor (my mom will come help me). Then DH will built the crib and I have to wash the linen and I'll be ready!! PJs are all cleaned, diapers and wipes are bought for a while, I have formula (in case bf doesn't work).
Yesterday I bought myself a nice lazy boy to rock baby and sleep in!!! Thanks for the sales, I pay 500$.. still expensive but at least I'll be comfortable! With my first I had a cheap old rocking chair that gave me nightmares!!! (Hunter was NOT a good sleeper)!
I need to pack a hospital bag soon, buy baby monitor and a changing pad... that's it, so getting there!!
2 months top and baby will be here!! yay!!!
I have so much to do compared to you ladies!! Only thing ive done is put up the crib and dresser! I still have to pack my bag. , wash his clothes get a car seat omgggg!!!! Lol i feel soo unprepared if he were to come today i would be doomed lol
I am tempted to get a Rock n Play because DS was a terrible sleeper and this may have helped him. However each kid is different. I think we might need some paci's too. We also need some newborn nipples. Maybe in 3 weeks I will pack my bag. If something were to unexpectedly happy, I could send someone home with a list. We also need diapers, wipes and some fheormula. Car seats arrived yesterday.

We are set for Reagan. We have the crib in our room and I put all the bedding on it today. I also attached the nursery organizer and put a few things in there. I put the carseat base in the van yesterday. We've got a good start on both diapers and formula too. The only thing I want to get before she gets here is a new boppy. Ours has lost some of it's fluff
