Too Prepared for Our Baby???

If you’ve been following this blog for the past few months, you’d know that we’re anxiously expecting our third child.

In fact, our newborn still has not yet arrived – and he’s nearly a week late. But while we’ve been waiting for him, we’ve been preparing for his arrival.

We’ve got the baby carrier and stroller travel system ready…






We’ve got the bases for the baby carrier mounted in both of our vehicles…











The nursery is ready and waiting to be occupied….






And there’s one more thing we’ve been doing as a family to prepare for our new arrival, check out this short video clip we made together….

Question: Anything else we can be doing while we wait for the baby to arrive?

    Um, sleep? We’re not getting a lot of that around here, but it’s getting better. Stella is 5 days old today. Can’t wait to see your little man.

    Amass a small fortune? The one you will spend (gladly) helping this child find his special way in the world…

      Now that’s good advice…

    Have you enrolled him in prep school yet?

      We tried but they said we needed a Social Security number first (bunch of fascists)….

    As many people have pointed out already sleep. Changing the diaper, eating standing up (baby will be sleeping until you sit down to eat dinner. Baby will sleep until you sit down to do anything.) lol

      Hah! They do have an amazing ability to sense the engagement of our gluts with seats ;-)

    I see you’re all going a little crazy waiting for the baby. Enjoy your time with the family that you have now, rested. Happy, tired changes are coming!

      Sound wisdom as always Bonnie! Thanks for stopping by!

    You can start up shifts for doing 10 loads of laundry a day and then make diaper change utility belts, making sure that you’ve got your changing times down to a few seconds so that you can catch that little boy pee from going everywhere, yet still have all the poop cleaned up. lol

      A diaper-change utility belt – GENIUS!!!

    You can enjoy sleeping through the night, because that won’t be happening for a while… :) Congrats to you!

      Unfortunately – I think you’re correct ;-) Thanks Anthony!
