Re: To Do Before Baby Arrives

MOVE!

So, DH comes home for lunch just now and says 'I have the keys to the new house' and I'm like 'wait.. now????' cause this weekend is the Air Force Ball (DH is on the committee and will spend the entire day helping set up) and then next week is DD's birthday party.

I'm like 'why didn't you say we'd start NEXT weekend???' and he's all 'you won't have to do anything except marvel in how your stuff magically moves from 1 house to the other'.

we'll see............................................... ..............................

Haha... Yeah... Somehow, the past three moves DH and I have had, he's managed to be on shift or on OT at the fire department and I've been lucky enough to move our stuff! Lol.
Once pregnant and once with a four month old. He marveled in the magic, not me! You're lucky! :P

Re: To Do Before Baby Arrives

We are still waiting to do anything big until later on, probably after the holidays, but we did move DS into a toddler bed (in his current room, which will be the babys room) two weeks ago and he has done awesome in it since the first night. He really likes it and actually seems to sleep better in it! I was so relieved about that, because I read all these stressful stories about people not being able to keep toddlers in bed.

Oh boy! I think I'm starting to nest... I keep making lists and this morning I was telling DH how I want the kitchen reno'ed (no way that's happening anytime soon lol).

To do:
Big girl room for DD, buy mattress and move chest of drawers from my parents house. Buy closet organizer.

Paint master bedroom and clean out the piles of clothes that I don't wear anymore.

Go through newborn clothes and wash gender neutral stuff. Set up nursery with NB dipes and other baby gear.

Get my mat leave paperwork going at work and decide on my departure date.

Whew!!
