Tomorrow I'll be 32 weeks! That means 8 weeks to go until the due date, and much to be done before then. Thanks to the generosity of family members and shower attendees, we've got plenty of clothes and toys, even shoes! We got three packs of diapers last weekend, the crib has been ordered, the travel system (stroller and car seat) purchased and put together (but not installed in the car yet), and the cradle is waiting to be moved into our room.
Next weekend we do the "expectant parents" tour of the hospital, and we start our childbirth/childcare classes in August. Hopefully she won't come early, or we won't know what we're doing. On Sunday, we hope to get her little chest of drawers painted pink, and then I'll start washing clothes and putting them away.
There's still things we need to shop for - thankfully we have a lot of gift cards! She has no toiletries, like shampoo or cotton balls. We only have one curtain panel and no crib skirt. We need a crib mattress and a comfy chair for feeding and storytime. Hm...this is making me excited to go shopping!
We have what we think is (yet again) a prospective buyer for our house. Pray that she will accept our counteroffer - which will be a significant loss for us, but we want to be done with this!
