School is in full motion. All of the activities have started. I had 2 Cub Scout meetings, 1 Boy Scout meeting, Cross Country practices to pick up from, a Cross Country meet on Thursday, a Doctors appointment with one of the kids, etc. I also had to run to the pediatrician’s office to get a copy of a shot record. Today R had a Cross Country meet at 8 am. We had to get up at 6:15, just to get there on time. It is go, go, go.
I have been collapsing into bed, exhausted, each night. I have been keeping up with the house work and laundry, but not much else. Thankfully, my husband is continuing the momentum with the cleaning. He and my son R want a tool and I said if they got the other half of the basement cleaned out that they could get it. It keeps them both motivated!
I have a Doctor’s appointment on Monday. I will be 28 weeks. Crazy to think about. I am hoping for having this baby around 38 weeks so that she isn’t too big. That is 10 weeks or about 72 more days. When I think in terms of days instead of weeks, I realize that she will be here before we know it.
I have almost everything that I need to get started except for the car seat/stroller that I want. A nice lady gave me clothes, burp cloths, bibs, coats, etc. for up to 2T. I will need to fill in with what I don’t have, but that was a huge blessing. Someone gave me a crib, a portable high chair, and a pack and play. I bought a bouncy seat and a car seat cover, to help keep her warm without having to put a snowsuit on her just to leave the house. I would like to get a sling, but it’s not critical for a little while. I am definitely thinking about getting ready. As the belly grows, so does making sure I have all that I need a priority.
Here are a few pictures of what we have been up to! Have a great weekend!
