oh sh*t

See that ticker? 100 days until Peanut's due date.

The room is not painted - I don't even have a color picked out. I have registered for a car seat, strollers, and at Laura's urging, a jungle swing. Oh, and some Dreft. That's it.

I officially feel like the most unprepared person ever.

100 days is still along time!!! you will be ready when peanut gets here!!! if not there are lots of helper monkeys out there!!!

You will get the urge and start doing everything all at once. I still haven't done much and can't do anything until Josh finishes the basement. Hopefully that will be in the next couple months so I can move the guest room and start on the baby's room.

Do you have any ideas for the baby's room?

Relax! First, you need a carseat, diapers, wipes and onesies... that's it for a while. Peanut won't care what color it's room is until it's like 5. And all that cute bedding and crib bummers just increase the risk of SIDS, so forget them. Everytime you get groceries, get a pack of wipes and a pack of diaper, all different sizes. Don't worry, you'll be ready!!

You will be totally ready when Peanut gets here. Don't worry about it. If it makes you feel any better, Noah was born in September and it wasn't until July/August that we cleaned out the guest room and turned it into a baby boy's room.

...and Laura's totally right. Carseat, diapers, wipes, and clothes...that's all you really need. If you don't get other stuff before hand, it might actually be a blessing in disguise. It might help to meet Peanut and learn his/her 'quirks' before you pick out other items.

Alanna, you were totally the mother hen of the AGD house, you will be great no matter how much stuff you do or do not purchase before hand!
