4 weeks and counting until the newest little man in my life arrives. Beyond excited but at the same time nervous about juggling newborn lifestyle and being the mama of a 2 year old!
Physically feeling good but still noticing an overwhelming emotional side of me. Tears can be brought on at any moment!
Things are moving along and I am trying to stop stressing about the slow pace. After an unsuccessful trip to Ikea yesterday Guy ordered the baby's furniture online this morning. It was out of stock in store, go figure. Its due to come towards the end of next week which puts us just shy of 2 weeks until the baby's arrival. I wanted it sooner so I could wash the clothes/sheets/blankets and get it all put away. On the upside I have everything sorted for washing, located all the immediate needs, and I finally found the vibrating piece for the bassinet.
I am also getting Mia organized, Guy promised me he would get her closet organizer done this week, so i can her closet organized. Then she will be in good shape.
Aside from that we need to order some things from Diapers.Com and Amazon as well as take a trip to Babies R Us for a last minute things. Mostly breastfeeding/pumping items and diapers of course.
As for the house - the lower level should be getting painted this week and hopefully the tile will get started as well. I am going to try and look at carpet this week so we can get that installed sometime after the painting is done. This is hanging over my head as its been dusty and noisy and I am ready for the room to be complete so we can move the toys down there and the large tv that is now taking up space in the nursery.
Other then that things have been good. Mia is amazing and just goes with the flow. I can't believe how grown up she is and opinionated to boot. Talk about attitude! She is really a hoot, smart as a whip. Oh how blessed we are. I am anxious to see how she is with the baby, we have been trying to get her to understand the baby is coming. Selling her on the whole big sister thing. I am sure she will be fine, she likes other kids and babies but that might change when she sees that one is coming to live with us!
