OOooh food for my OCD brain!
We've been doing pretty good. We have some major things that I've kind of resigned myself are not happening prior to baby (we wanted to have our whole basement finished... it is sooo not happening), but most of the things we need to do are done.
-Wrote list of must haves before baby is born (see below...)
-bought crib, chose fabric for crib blanket, which MIL is making.
-bought pack and play for sleep area first few weeks
-pulled out and organized all the clothing, sorted by sizes.
-pulled out diapers, decided to stick with current stash, and supplement with sposies until the OS fit.
-confirmed usage of bucket seat and bouncer chair from friends
-went through list- we definately have all the clothing/blankets/big stuff etc we need
-bought ultrasound gel for doppler, and chux pads for laboring at home
-just ordered two more bras for use as nursing bras
-set up the p&p we bought used, and bought one piece it was missing
Need to Do:
-find fabric for crib sheet and pack and play sheet and make, and purchase mattress
-pick up the bucket seat and bouncer chair, along with getting my wrap back (its with the chair)
-wash all clothing and all diapers, put clothing back into closet
-Find system for diapers.
-sterilize pumps and bottles
-Empty out baby's room of crap...
-Get a pack of newborn sposies (waiting until closer to the date, since I'm sure someone will buy some for us, and I don't want too many)
-Maybe do a hospital tour
-Meet with doula so DH can meet her
-update birth plan, and write a JIC c-section plan
-finish paperwork for work
-buy diaper soap
-buy depends and put together labor box for home
-pack hospital bag
I think that's most of it. What's left other than that is just the 'make it look pretty' parts. We really have most of what we need. But the baby's room is a disaster right now, so nothing has been really set up or organized.
Pictures of progress!
Organizing all the hand me downs
Closet organizer was set up already, and we did a test run, but need to take all the non-baby things out of the closet so I can also add in all the diapers, the blankets, the bath care type stuff, etc. But you can see the bag of yellow/blue cloths for diaper inserts, next to it is fleece for if I ever get around to sewing some more clothes (it's hard to find motivation when you have so many clothes already), toys that won't be used for a few months... The next shelf down with the two black bins are 3M onesies, and an empty one (for now), next down are preemie and 0-3M onesies, and then a bin of preemie and 0-3M pants. Hanging are all the same size sleepers/buntings, sweaters, and t-shirts. It's midleading though, because even though they're hung, some of them have tags on them still, and they all need to be washed.
In the bottom (along with other misc crap...) you can see the blue and yellow bag that has the pump in it, the blue box is stuffed with diapers, under that is the pack and play... To the left of the closet with the hangers sticking out of it is the baby's laundry bin. lol.
But this is what the other side of the room looks like... The paint color will be staying the same, as well as the blinds, but I think we're probably going to have to find some black out shades as well. Basically though, the stack on the far right hand side is non-baby (it's mostly toys, as well as holiday decor), but almost all the other bins are baby clothes, sorted by size, a box of blankets, the convertible car seat, etc.
Like I said... lol. We have pretty much everything, it's just a matter of being able to organize and finish preparing it!
