(Photo is obviously NOT of my baby, but I thought it went along nicely with the post!)

Call it "nesting" if you will, but I'm leaning more toward the concept of "finally getting my act together to get ready for this baby to show up!"  A couple days ago, I hefted a couple Rubbermaid totes full of baby clothes up from the basement and filled Micah's top dresser drawer with newborn onesies, pants, and sleepers.  It was somewhat scary to be looking at such teeny tiny clothes again!  It's kind of funny to see how many of those items are permanently stained from crazy projectile newborn not looking forward to dealing with that mess. 

Once I actually had some clothes to put Baby in, I dug out the old baby carseat so that I could actually get the little buggar home from the hospital.  I installed the newborn insert, adjusted the straps, wiped down the inside, and busted out the base.  Evan was kind enough to take it to the van this morning for me, so it's all set to get installed once we need it!

Clothes - check.  Carseat - check.  Diapers - check.  Thankfully, I've been stocking up on diapers for months now whenever I've come across a good price.  I have the top shelf of Micah's closet stuffed with diapers ranging from size Newborn all the way up to 4!  Should be enough to at least get me started.  I do still need more wipes though.  Add that to the Target list!

The goal for this weekend is to make some more steps toward being ready to take care of the new bambino.  I'm planning to hit Target on Saturday to pick up the sleeper I wrote about in the baby stuff post:

I'm also going to go ahead and order the bag for the breast pump since I have no way of knowing how long that will take to actually ship to me.  Probably should have done that a couple weeks ago, actually!!

I'll probably also pull the "Buy It" trigger on the goofy looking bathtub:

I also need to dig out my box of baby bottles to see if I need to replace any, double check to make sure I have plenty of breast milk bags, Tucks pads, and all the other not-so-glamorous things that become necessities after a baby is born. 

Whew!  I have my work cut out for me!  About two-ish weeks to go!
