Wanna Come Along???

It has been a little harder to blog lately. My mind is so flooded with "stuff" that things are just not coming out clear. Thankfully the "Doula" post was pretty consistent so that you all could actually follow some of my thoughts (thanks for all of your sweet comments by the way!).

So, I have decided to invite you all along. I have lots of mini-projects to do before Ellie arrives. LOTS! I am going to try to get maybe 1 a day accomplished...we'll see! I'm sorry if some of them just aren't that exciting, but I feel like it would give me some good accountability to do it if I include you all :) Here is my first list to get through- We will try this for ONE week to see how good I am. I don't like making empty promises!

1. Make a Birth Plan just in case I have to go to the hospital.
Ok, don't pee your pants or anything, I KNOW how exciting this one is! I bet you all can't wait! ha!!!

2. Complete Ellie's room.
Find white rocking chair for under $100, sew final step for crib skirt, and organize a little more.

3. Condense Baby Wise Info for Weeks 1 & 2 after she is born.
Baby Wise is a book all about scheduling feeding/sleeping times. Another post that I'm sure will knock your socks off!

4. Complete last set of Maternity Photos.
Our awesome friend
Jennifer is taking another round of photos for us this Saturday. I can't wait!

That would be 4 posts in a week! Wow. Can I do it????

you look great girl! i'm glad to hear things are going well. i can't wait to see photos of your little girl. i bet she is going to be darling. that's exciting that you want to be a doula. i have a couple friends that are... so let me know if you want to ask them any questions. i hope you get everything done! because i had lucas at 36 weeks and was not expecting it (and was on bed rest for 2 1/2 weeks) i was unable to be so organized. but just so you know if you don't get it all done... it will work out! :)

Can't wait for Saturday, you are a supermodel!

I also recommend reading "Healthy Sleep Habits, Happy Child." I actually like it more than "Baby Wise." It gives you week by week techniques and good information. It's been SO helpful!!
