It would appear that we are ready–at least, as ready as we can be–for a baby.
Between Sunday, February 5 and Sunday, February 12, my husband and I basically got together all the baby stuff that we either received or purchased ourselves, cleaned it, put it together, and stored it away. Plus, we cleaned out and rearranged a significant portion of the rest of the house, and did a deep cleaning on pretty much every room in the house. We cooked a ton of freezer meals, to the point that I’ve made pretty much all I ever intended to make (plus a couple of extra dishes.) We also cleaned out our cars and installed car seats. We even did our online birthing class.
A few last-minute, and less critical, items have been trickling in, but nothing that really takes a lot of time to sort out.
So. That leaves us with possibly as much as a month with nothing to do but wait.
I’m not really sure what to do with myself.

Just make sure you have diapers, long sleeved onesies, and lots and lots of maxi-pads (did anyone tell you that you have a 6-10 week period after a baby? Yeah. You do.
