Furniture wise...that is.
We braved a very busy IKEA to get the last piece of furniture for the Baby's room. This Leksvik chest of drawers matches the changing table and was on sale for $199. We were originally going to get the taller 6-drawer dresser (same sale price), but when we went to get it in the self-serve warehouse, there was only one box. And there are two boxes of pieces. So even though we wanted the taller one, we both decided that the shorter, wider one would do. Besides, when the baby grows up, he'll be able to get into all the drawers himself and it has a lower likelihood of toppling over.
It's not put together yet, but I told Hubby he didn't have to hurry on it. We have a little bit of time left and I still have lots of baby laundry to do.
We also picked up a free umbrella stroller and a Sesame Street play gym from a very nice lady via Freecycle. These items will be for my parents for when baby is with them. My mom will be taking care of my baby twice a week, so we're working on getting them outfiitted with what they need as well.
Things are coming together for the Baby. I'll be having baby showers for the next two Saturdays and my work will be having a shower for me sometime during January. After that, we'll have more baby things and will be able to complete our baby-related spending. They say you're not truly fully prepared, but we're getting close to getting what we need. It's still feels so far away, even though in reality, it's about a month! Eeeek!
Tomorrow is my first of the weekly appointments - I will go once a week until baby arrives. Tomorrow is also when they make the determination on how my delivery will proceed - either C-section or regular. He's still head up, so looks like we'll be taking the surgical route. But, tomorrow, it should be official. *sigh*
