Baby To- Do List

I'm almost 28 weeks. Which means my little man will be here in 11 weeks due to my scheduled c-section at 39 weeks. Yikes. I have so much to do before his arrival and time is just flying by.

You'd think I'd feel more prepared the second time around. Nope I feel even more anxious and unprepared than I did with Gianna. At this point with Gianna everything was bought and ready. The nursery furniture was purchased( thanks to my amazing parents and relatives who all went in on the set and bought it for us) the car seat was installed, we had enough clothes to last us the first 6 months and all decorations for the nursery were bought as well.

This little guy has nothing except a car seat and a painted room. No furniture, nothing. So I compiled a list of everything I have to get yet before little mans arrival. Here it is

To do list
1. Buy double stroller
2. Buy crib, and two matching dressers
3. Wash clothes in dreft
4. Buy changing table pad and cover
5. Buy bedding
6. Paint letters for Ethan's room
7. Purchase the baby ktan, swaddle wraps and other baby essentials
8. Stock up on diapers for both Gianna and Ethan
9. Make freezer meals for the first few weeks
10. Spend lots of one on one time with Gianna.
11. Set up maternity pics.

I think that's about it. I have a written list in my planner that I am constantly adding to and crossing off as items get purchased. My bank account is screaming looking at this checklist!

But 11 weeks is plenty of time to get ready. I went to my friends baby shower yesterday. Her little boy came a month early so he was a part of the shower and boy was he cute. It made me so excited to have a newborn in the house again. Yet it also reminded me of how fast time flies. I can barely remember when Gianna was that little. I look at her now and all traces of baby are gone. It's crazy how fast they grow!!
