Well, I wanted to write a post on this lovely Friday, but there's nothing sports related I felt was important enough for me to use up blog space on. So here's some baby stuff for you all today!
With just "5 weeks" left until my due date (even though I really think it's like 3 weeks) I've been doing some "nesting" while I'm on maternity leave. Some of it is minute but it's so exciting because i know there will be a baby here basking in all the stuff we've been doing.
The most recent thing I've done is put together our 4moms rockaRoo! This thing is ah-may-zing! When I saw it in Babies R Us I was so excited and I just knew I needed (well my daughter) needed to have it. Obviously it rocks back and forth but what's cool about it to me is that I can plug any iPod or MP3 up to it to play music (or my new favorite thing: white noise). There's a few different models that you can get but since I don't get paid to advertise for these people I'll just say go see it at Target, Babies R Us or buybuyBaby for yourself. Hopefully my daughter likes it because I'm definitely sticking her in it every single chance I get! I can promise you that!
The other two "major" things I've done lately was pack my hospital bag and wash all her new clothes. Now, let me be the first to say I was procrastinating on packing my hospital bag for a while but now that I've done it I swear it's all I think about. I read so many articles and talked to so many people about what to pack, it was so hard! And I still feel like I'm missing stuff but I don't want to overpack because then I'll be upset.
And let me tell you something else - baby clothes are so cute, until you have to wash them and separate them! Ugh! I hate doing my own laundry (I leave that for hubby because he just HAS to wash clothes every three days or so (cause he has OCD but don't tell him I told you))! And since we don't know how big or small she'll be when she's born it's like man do we keep all of these clothes, what do we get rid of, what if she can't wear any of this stuff ever? So many things to think about!
As I mentioned earlier, we're coming up on the due date faster than my mind can handle right now and there are a few other things I want/need to do. Little spoiled child has her own bathroom already (can't even wash herself)! We have all kinds of cute baby soaps and lotions and towels and robes to set up for her. Probably need to take the car seat out of the box at some point, you know just in case she decides to make an appearance and then we don't have a way to get her home. Then there's the stroller, pack and play, organizing the kitchen with nursing stuff, etc.
I will say the one thing I need to stop doing is shopping! Target.com is really my best friend and it's terrible. I just order stuff all day long and then I'm at home waiting on the UPS or the post office to deliver. (Don't tell my husband though, ha!) But I'm adding to my own demise because I keep bringing stuff in the house that later I'll have to organize. Yes, I have a problem. I can admit it.
Well anyway, hopefully something interesting enough for me in sports happens soon because if not there will be more and more baby posts. And I don't know how interesting they'll be before my daughter actually gets here. But thanks for reading anyway!
