I spent most of the day preparing for our little lady. Started with a doctor's appointment to get rid of this nasty cough/bronchial infection and also wound up getting a tetanus + pertussis shot upon the doc's recommendation. Afterwards, I headed to the grocery store to pick up some food and came home with diapers, wipes, hangers, and bath stuff. Then I got home, unloaded groceries, grabbed a bite to eat, and Mr. Rambler and I headed to the baby store.
If you've ever been to a baby store on Saturday, then you owe me a drink for not warning me ahead of time. It was one crazyass place. DH said, "I don't crave drinks, but I am now." and "They really need scotch at the end of every aisle." Of course, he found a couple of things he thought we should register for, so we added them. We also picked our glider/rocker and the fabric for it. We finally bought baby's PNP w/ bassinet, some hair bows, a boppy cover, a going home outfit (so cute!), and a few other things. Instead of going home so I could take my meds and nest, I went for a nail appointment.
Not long after I got home, my bff since 8th grade came by and brought our travel system! It was such a generous gift & I'm so excited about it. Our evening ended with dinner.
My order from Carter's arrived so our baby doesn't have to go nekkid. When we got home from dinner, I assembled our stroller, car seat, & PNP, washed my first load of baby stuff, folded it all, washed bottles, packed our diaper back, and got ready for bed.
Tomorrow I'll go through the five boxes of clothes from a friend and the two boxes of clothes from my sisters. My car has a date at the car spa, the dogs MUST be bathed, install the carseat base, go by the fire dept to have it checked, and take my dad to dinner for his bday. I also need to write lesson plans for next week and the weeks that follow.
Still waiting to hear from J and meet our dream girl. I'm really excited now that we're ready!
