September 14th - Nervous Nelly

Wednesday, September 14, 2011

As I sit here eating cottage cheese - straight from the carton - going over my mental to-do list, I can't help but notice my stomach is full of knots {and one active baby}. Apparently I'm super nervous - like to the point of being nauseous - and I can't pinpoint why?
With Saige I remember being impatient... I couldn't wait to get her out {I'm thinking ignorance truly is bliss?} Sure I'm a bit anxious about the whole labour and delivery song & dance, but I've been feeling waaay more prepared thanks to a super productive nesting week {more on that in a sec}; health-wise I feel fantastic and I'm certainly excited to meet the little guy, so what's with all this over-the-top anxiety?


Anyways on to my good news - me making a serious dent in "THE LIST" {highlighted items mean they're officially D.O.N.E. - booyah!}:

* eye appointment
* hair appointment
* take dogs to groomers
* tidy house
* tidy yard
* put away ALL the baby clothes & gear
He's not even born yet and already he's taken over 5 dresser drawers! ridiculous.

* hire a housekeeper - Linda is coming tomorrow to all the things I can't won't don't want to do: walls, windows, floors, baseboards, dusting, etc.
* stock the freezer
Sure did spend $50+ at the Farmer's Market... bring on healthy 'heat & eat' dinners! 

* bake goodies for baby visitors
* finish Baby K's nursery nook - just waiting on the custom bumper pads & crib skirt from tuft love fabric
* wash & vacuum truck - I had to take it through the washing bay twice {I missed A LOT of dirty spots the first time}
* collect items for our home birthing kit
* buy clothes hamper for all Baby K's laundry
* apply for maternity leave benefits
* pack a hospital bag just in case
* pack Saige's overnight bag
* borrow mom's exercise ball
* wrap siblings' gifts to eachother
Kai & Sadie - laaf

* attach car seat adapter to stroller
* install car seats - all thanks to Sharmay & the Vernon Fire Department hotties ;)
* purchase and install a 2nd base for the 'Snugride' in Trev's truck 
* update the Belly Book {it's been awhile}
* find a baby book
* potty train Saige
* sterilize bottles, soothers, etc.
* decorate the front porch for Fall
* paint wooden baby gate
* make some 'on the go baby change kits'
* decide on outfits for our October photo shoot with Milk & Honey
* nap, read, nap, blog, nap...
* find some sort of coat hook for Baby K's nook
* love on Saiger & Trev
Yes she's been scratching her head a lot these days - probably thinking "what on Earth is going on?"

{I'm kinda wondering the same thing}
