Getting ready for BBD!

The other weekend it finally occurred to Jeff and me that ready or not this baby is coming. We've been so focused on getting the kitchen completed and work that we hadn't really done much to prepare for the baby. Now before anyone freaks out we have attended our childbirth classes and have been reading some books, but as far as getting the room ready that hadn't happened. In our defense we had house guests for the past month and a half so it also wasn't a convenient time. (I'll let you know if I think of any other excuses) :)

With our house guests gone and the due date getting closer we started to get our butts into gear. We got rid of the couch in my office and moved the guest bed into the office. Next we called the in-laws to employ their services for a weekend! With four grandchildren already, John and Sue are experts at preparing for a new baby's arrival!

By the end of the weekend the room was painted, all of the baby clothes and linens were washed, the crib was up and the weeds in the front were gone (thanks Sue!). All in all it was a very successful weekend and a great time to catch up with John and Sue before the baby comes! We still have a lot to do to complete the nursery but we're slowly getting there!
