As I was reminiscing I rubbed my belly affectionately and got a lung-collapsing kick back...oh the love my lil boy loves to share with me...
It was then that I realized just how soon our face-to-face meeting was going to be. It literally took my breath away. Here I am in this ridiculously uncomfortable hospital sheet (because calling it a gown is beyond ridiculous) 36 weeks along and realizing...crap... we're not ready. It actually started to annoy me that my body was gearing up for labor and I hadn't physically done as much as I had when prepping for lil A's arrival. Maybe that was why I was being more physically abused internally this time around...like...he knows!
I didn't keep up with my weekly belly shots and statuses...I haven't yet purchased the fabric for the new bed set and curtains, I haven't even bought newborn diapers yet! I am proud to say we managed to clean all the newborn clothes up to 9 months and have them folded and put away. Lil A helped... I guess.
So this weekend Matt agreed that we needed to get it all done. Apparently his nesting has finally kicked in lol. We'll be making lil A's twin bed thanks to plans for Ana White. Luckily the weather is going to be in the high 30's! (It's like a heat wave from this -5 we've been averaging!). Meanwhile I'll be making a trip to the fabric store, packing our hospital bag and starting on painting the room. It's going to be a very busy day...but at the end I'll feel better. Meanwhile, I need to come up with a special way to capture the memory of this pregnancy. Lil A have the weekly bump pics... maybe this guy will get a hospital photo shoot. I found this pic on Pinterest and just melted...
I'll need to convince Matt on that one. But our new lil guy needs something special. I know he's a boy and will probably never care to look back at such things, but I need it. Any of you have any ideas for me? Meanwhile I'm going to go rack up another bill of online items that are on my excel spreadsheet: diapers, bottle nipples, new cloth wipes warmer, swaddle blanket... you know how I love lists!
I am proud to say that we have our double stroller (thanks to my amazing lil sis..Jen!)

...don't bother telling me to take it easy. I'm a DIY mommy on a mission. :) But I will take breaks and spend time with lil A...maybe get sticker tattoos on the belly again...maybe.
