Baby To-Do List - 8 Weeks Left

This week I really needed to get my tail in gear. Thankfully it was a long weekend, I felt wonderful Sunday afternoon and ok Monday afternoon, so that is when most of this stuff was accomplished.

Need to (in no particular order):

  • Decide on co-sleeper or bassinet  
  • Find and buy a bassinet
  • Pick a name... First and middle  
  • Go through, organize and wash new born clothes
  • Go through, organize and wash 0-3 month clothes
  • Buy Diapers  
  • Buy double stroller
  • Buy a wipe warmer
  • Pack hospital bag
  • Install infant car seat
  • Buy small toys/gifts for Elijah to receive when the baby gets presents
  • Wrap the small toys for Elijah
  • Buy the big present for Elijah  

Progress this week:
  • We bought a double stroller. I had been eyeing this one specific double stroller pretty much since I found out I was pregnant. This weekend Babies R Us/Toys R Us was having a wonderful sale, which included 15% off of cribs, strollers, high chairs, etc. So we bought it, cause even after looking on Amazon, I couldn't find it cheaper. Now if I could only commit to a bassinet like that...
  • We cleaned and straightened our bedroom, which indirectly was on the list of things to do. It took me 6 hours of sorting and packing, then having braxton hicks contractions and back spasms that evening... but it looks marvelous!

So glad to see that you're making progress...I'm sure you feel great each time you cross something off this list! Just don't over do.

Have you narrowed down your choices for the bassinet?
