I had to work all weekend (rounding at 3 hospitals, seeing babies for 11 docs) but it was tax-free weekend and I wanted to get things done.
I set up both playpens (1 "travel"/mini one upstairs and the big one w/changer downstairs)
Went to Babies'R'Us and got:
A new bassinette (our old one was a recalled Simplicity 4 in 1...loved it but...not intentionally using a recalled item). It's now set up in our bedroom. Got the Fisher Price Little Lamb one
A bouncy chair (my son's old one was a hand me down and is kaput) - now washed and set up
A bath mat foam thing. Still need a bathTUB, but this'll be good enough until the cord falls off
A floor gym with tummy time prop - washed and set up with all toys attached.
Cleaned up on clothes for both Cassandra and Brayden, as it's tax-free weekend AND BRU had all clearance clothes on sale for $5. (all washed and hung/put up)
Got (and packed) a diaper bag appropriate for DH
Bought a Wubbanub (finally!)
Got nipple shields, ameda gel pads, and reusable breast pads (HATED the paper ones)
I need to dig out my pumps and see what parts need replacing.
Still need to pack a hospital bag for me.
had a couple of good contractions today.
Wish I had more time to sleep. (or that I COULD sleep...stupid SPD + carpal tunnel + microbladder)
That's awesome. I hope you get some good sleep soon!
Now that's a productive weekend!!! I got absolutely nothing baby related done Today and tomorrow I have big plans to get everything done but we'll see!

Quick question... What's a wubbanub?

A Wubbanub is a plush toy that has a Soothie sewn into its mouth. We only use Soothie pacifiers - we love them - but they fall out All. The. Time and there arent good pacifier tethers for them.
Basically, a Wubbanub holds the pacifier in place and (in a newborn) puts a little comforting weight almost like a hand, on the baby's chest.
