With baby boy coming in just 10 short weeks... I'm feeling overwhelmed.
There's so much I feel like I need to get done, and its difficult when I feel like I have the energy level of a slug. I must be going through nesting or something.. just without the motivation to actually get things done!
Some things I feel like NEED to be done before baby boy comes:
-A completely cleaned and organized AND decorated apartment.
-I need to finish baby boy's blanket I've been working on for AGES.
-I want to crochet a few more things for baby.
-We need to REALLY figure out a final name.
-We need to make a final decision on how were going to do cloth diapers without a washer (thanks for all your great tips on this post BTW) . And actually, a friend of mine just sent me this link which could end up being a lifesaver! (thanks Molly!!)
-I need to figure out if were taking birth classes, and if we are WHERE (just admitting that we haven't done this yet makes me feel like a bad parent already for some reason)
-We need to do our taxes sometime (thinking about how awful doing last years was, is enough to make me want to cry)
-We need to still buy a few big things for baby: this one shouldn't be too hard since were planning on co-sleeping, cloth- diapering, baby-wearing, and breast-feeding.. but we still have a few things left that we need to get.
I'm sure I'm missing several.. but this is all I can think of for now.
I totally realize that in the scheme of things, these things seem silly. But, they feel so important! I guess I just need to do each thing one day at a time and not let myself get too stressed if not everything gets done.
Because in reality.. the really important thing is that our sweet boy arrives safely,
and that I soak up every day that I have left of him squirming around in my belly :)
