So, yesterday marked the 1 week to go mark for us. Hard to believe, but it is true. As of today, I have six days that I am counting down. I will not reveal to many pre labor details in this post, but things are moving along, and I am hoping to be snuggling Henry in my arms before too long.
So how did I do this week?
finish Jana's baby gift- well I didn’t really start this. I have cut out some of the fabric, and I know what I am making for this little boy. But Jana’s baby shower isn’t going to be until the end of May, and I took a closer look at what needed to be done, and knew this could get moved for a bit. I don’t think I will have a very long sewing gap, because I am too addicted to it right now!
finish Gaia's birthday gift- Gaia’s birthday also is several weeks off, not until cinco de mayo! so, I did get all the materials (except some padding) cut out for her 2 gifts, but this will be held off until middle of April?
make fun totes- well, originally this meant fun totes for me! Cause I wanted to be able to have various sized cute totes and drawstring bags for different projects and purposes. However, last week at Joann’s I found this wonderful animal fabric that I had to have- because it had a giraffe, elephant, and a lion on it (only those 3 animals, and they aren’t whimsical- they are really retro and cute) and these are the animals that I have assigned to all 3 kids. So I decided to make 3 totes, and embroider each kiddos name onto the tote (and these will be their “Easter bags”). They are started, and soon they may be done!
work on Campbell's homeschooling folder- I have printed out a bunch of worksheets for Campbell, I just need to hole punch and put in a binder. However, I want to do a fun craft with Campbell to decorate the binder.
work on Mother's Day gifts- I should be working on this, but this will be easy to do while sitting on the couch, staring at my new beautiful baby boy!
work on van basket- nah, but I did get my carseats professionally installed at CHP- and I am so happy that I did! They are not moving at all!
finish Campbell's Easter pants- YES! DONE! I am so happy I got to this. Henry won’t have matching pants, but I am really happy I have a little pair of pants for Campbell.
Added from last week:
follow up with healthy families- called and faxed additional information, and YES- she has been approved and I got her insurance card yesterday! So thrilled about this.
do my recert for medi-cal- YES! Mailed out Saturday morning!
Maybe work on window frame- again, no. but hey, I gave myself 10 weeks. Maybe during Sam’s 10 weeks off we can work on it together!
Campbell flash cards- finally purchased index cards, so ½ way done!
Print out my lists (kids and diapers)- YES! DONE!
Maybe make Mason a little dress and kitty (maybe)- nope
Finish packing my hospital bag- YES DONE!
Burp cloths for Henry- YES DONE!
Addie’s birthday gift- YES DONE!!!!
Well I don’t really know what I want to do this week. I am really hoping that the baby will come and come soon! I think I will really just take it easy.
How’s about I just check back in and let you know what I get done from this day on?
