With 13 days left until labor things are unusually quiet. Jodi seems content (calm before the storm?), the house is prepared. Ziggy’s room is done. Things are just…way to peaceful. Something is going to happen, I can just feel it. Maybe tonight, or maybe I am just a bit crazy in anticipation.
Today is packing day, making sure we have everything we are going to need for the hospital for Eli, Ziggy, myself and most importantly Jodi. We also need to do some basic shopping, things like diaper cream, diapers, lotions such. It should be a fun weekend and I am happily on alert (which reminds me, I need to find my phone and charge it!).
Ok, so by now you know that I am freaking out a bit because I don’t think we are ready for Ziggy to arrive. T-16 days now until his due date and I finally am feeling a bit more confident. Things that we achieved last night:
Took apart and washed Eli’s old infant car seat. Then spent an hour trying to put it together again!
Arranged Viacord (we did this with Eli so it is only fair to do it for Ziggy)
Put the base in each car for the car seat (it just never feels like it is in tight enough for me)
Raised the mattress of the crib one notch higher (to the highest setting).
Made the crib all up with the newly washed sheets etc.
Got the dog scheduled for a haircut and bath
Ordered all the new breast pump tubing
Finalize our birth plan (LOL – we don’t even have one!)
All in all, I feel more confident. We still need to pack a bag for Jodi and Eli, gather a list of everyone to call, and get the house and rugs cleaned by a pro.
