99 DAYS TO GO!!!

WOOHOOO!! It's official as of today the countdown is in the double digits. Only 99 days left until London is due!!!!

Things left to do:

1) Empty his room and paint. Mike has yet to move everything out of his room (currently the guest room). We still need to paint too. We have bought the paint and all the supplies but for now it's just sitting in the garage.

2) Get his crib. I'm not all that worried about this step since even if we had the crib right now we would have no where to set it up. Thankfully Mike's parents are buying it for us, so that is one less thing we have to worry about.

3) Buy stuff. As of right now we have almost NOTHING for him. Let's see as of right now we have the following for him:

A sling
6 or 7 outfits
A floor activity mat
5 or 6 bibs
A few cute stuffed animals
A Bumbo chair
A few books
A 3 pack of receiving blankets
A little pair of froggy shoes
Yep...that's it!! Actually looking back over it, it's more than I thought we had.

Of course we are waiting to buy almost everything until after my baby showers. I will be having one down in Savannah on Jan 24 and then one here in Columbus probably the following weekend. I must admit it makes me just a little nervous to have NOTHING ready for him after our little pre-term labor scare. Although, even if we did have him right now, he would have to stay in the NICU for quite a while so we would still have plenty of time to get ready for his homecoming.

I'm sure there is more stuff that needs to get done that I am forgetting about, but for now these are the things that are on the top of our to-do list.

YAY for single digits!!! It is going to go fast!!! No worries about anything, you are right on time with everything. You would start getting antzy if you had everything set up and put away! Now you will have something to do and keep you from going nutso those last few months/weeks. And don't forget, newborns don't really need anything but food, diapers, and your loving :o) Love ya!
