DH has put the crib together and we bought new sheets for it a few days ago, our new carseat arrived today, and my hospital bag is packed.

Yay! That's awesome!! I love when everything starts falling into place! We still have to get DD's toddler bed so I can put the crib back together, but I've got everything washed, all my diapers prepped, the carseat cover washed (and base installed!), and my bag and her bag packed!! Bring on September!!

Lucky you :) We are in a holding pattern now. Baby girl will be in the bassinet in our room for a few months, which is good because we have to wait until DH can take a pension loan to build DSD's room downstairs, and that will probably be in November. My shower (ugh don't get me started on THAT lol) is supposedly at the end of the month so we also have to wait until THEN to see what we get/what we need.

So awesome! I'm SO jealous!!!

I think we pretty much have everything we need purchased (with the exception of some more nursing bras for me, a baby swing, and breast pump accessories, which apparently I won't need to buy because when I go to my next WIC pickup in August they said they should have the pieces I need for me! Yay!)

But I can't wash clothes and put everything together yet because DH needs to get off his lazy bum and finish cutting/putting up the baseboard in DD's bedroom and the few missing pieces in the hallway/living room so that we can get our carpet! Grarg......... THEN I'll be able to REALLY nest and put things away! DD will get her new bed setup then (finally!) with the storage drawers underneath so that we can put her dresser in the baby's room!

I don't think most men realize that 10 weeks is NOT very long!!!
