In case you're keeping track

THE List.
* pull out all newborn diapers I found some fitteds & covers, still need to get out all the prefolds.
* wash & dry them
* pull out & divide all hand-me-downs Most of them are out and divided, just one more bag to go through.
* wash them Washed what I found so far! I have one more basket to get in the wash!
* soak all stained stuff
* wash all new stuff
* clean out the kid's room This is a frightening task. I DID IT! I DID IT!!
* get rid of old toys
* pull out baby toys I actually already have them in baskets tucked away in the kid's room...somewhere.
* organize diaper/dresser area This is a HUGE one and scares me the most. DONE!!
* put away all of the clothes and diapers About half are put away. As soon as we're done with all this laundry, this will be DONE!
* pull out the swing
* clean it
* pull out changing pad & cover
* find the brest friend & clean it
* listen to hypnobabies every night I really really need to do this! Why am I fighting it so?
* start packing hospital bag What do I need even need to take ?
* find a "going home" outfit I ordered a super cute & comfy outfit, will cross this one off as soon as I get it!
* get car super duper deep cleaned I just found a place that I need to call to get a quote! Got a quote, now I just need a spare couple of hours to sit and wait while they do their thing.
* clean carseat
* install carseat
*find hospital night gown/robe/clothes I have a feeling this one will be scraped soon...a bit overkill possibly?
* get "recovery" supplies I found some overnight pads from Joaquin's birth, what else do I need?
* get a "gift from baby" for Joaquin I'm going to order a remote control fire truck that I've been eyeballing at Geppetto's, it's a bit cheaper on amazon.
* name the baby We actually have a couple of names on the table!
* wash all my old baby carriers
* make red gauze wrap I need to find some darn red gauze, Jo-ann's didn't have enough and now I don't have a current 40% off coupon. Have one I can take off your hands? If not, I might just end up ordering it online.
* make ring sling I can't find the perfect fabric for this, it has to be super duper cute and I'm incredibly indecisive.
* prepare meals for freezer Ordered a cookbook on amazon for frozen meal ideas...Dream Dinners style yo.
* go through shed and find any other baby odds and ends that need to be pulled out
* get some boxes to put away things pulled from room
get a hat rack for all of Joaquin's hats

Yep! I'm pretty much done except for a few things here and there. There have been additions to a to-do list, but nothing worth reporting on here. The red gauze wrap, as you know will never get crossed off, but I do have the materials for the ring sling. I'll have to get on that one of these nights. Other than that...I just twiddle my thumbs!

I created a spreadsheet to help me stay on track with Hypnobabies and I still find myself resisting too!
