The beauty of it all is that there is no more fear about the moment, whenever it comes. After an impromptu overnight stay in the Labor and Delivery unit of our hospital, we've learned a few lessons. The bags are packed, list is made, nursery complete, necessities purchased, Pediatrician chosen (we have a meet and greet on Tuesday!), No more feelings of "holy you-know-what, we don't even have a car seat yet." And thoughts of "where on earth are we going to change his diaper." And I'd be remiss to leave out the, "what the heck are we going to dress him in to come home from the hospital??" Nope, checklist is complete. The only thing we are missing is formula, but we want to wait and see what the Pediatrician recommends, and also, many people have recommended that we...ummm..."use" as much as the hospital will "give" us. Evidently they keep the shelf stocked so if you pretend that you just gave birth to a really good eater, they just keep refilling the stash. Just bring a bag with lots of extra room in it!!
Chris and I are both very ready for this chapter to be complete. While we want Bryan to stay put for a few more weeks, we are also very anxious for his appearance on the outside and to begin our journey as more than just The Puckstopper's Wife. In as few as 33 days, I could be the Puckstopper's Wife and Baby Mamma. That's just funny.
Here are some pictures of our finished product. Please don't judge the model in the car seat. Her name is Diana Petula and she will be 29 on November 1, 2012. It's the best I could do. Enjoy!!
|That's the blanket that my Aunt Diane made for me out of Grandma Melanie's old shirts. It's very comforting to have it in there, keeping watch of my little nugget.|
|I don't have a stitch of MSU or CMU garb. My rocking horse (made by my Grandpa Jack) is dressed in Texas A&M gear. My eyes hurt a little. We need to fix that.|
Nope. No more worries.
