My countdown to due date clock says 44 days! But, I don't even feel close to ready for this baby. I have so much to do at work before then and my family has been uncharacteristically fighting one illness after another for months, so I haven't even been thinking about this baby arriving.
We need to clean out our closets and stuff we've been storing under our beds. I need some storage space for this baby's clothes and things! We need to get our DD2 moved into her own room (which has been ready since her birth) but she's still sleeping with us especially since she's been fighting illness too.
I've get to get the cloth diapers out and wash them and organize the changing table to accomodate this baby as well as DD2. I've looked through baby clothes once and know I have to fill in some necessities, and wash everything.
We need to clean out and reorganize our kitchen cabinets to allow for the breast milk storage stuff and pump accessories. I need to buy a new pump too. Mine just isn't as powerful anymore after heavy use with three babies.
I'd like to paint our bedroom and bathroom and get new bedding and towels before baby comes to make it a nicer place to hang out, but there is slim to no chance that is going to happen now!
Even after making this list, I'm still not getting up to do any of this! I'm just doing a few things I need to do for work tomorrow and maybe I'll start on some of this stuff the folowing week! Ha Ha! I hope I get back to nesting soon! It was going pretty strong in January, but has completely faded away!
Anyone else in denial or is everyone ready?
