37 Weeks Pregnant WIth Logan

Well we have made it to term!  

37 weeks pregnant.

Logan can come any time he wants now and everyday I am getting a little less anxious and a little more excited.

To celebrate, Ayden and I had a stay home day!  Well... I guess not entirely stay home since we took a walk to my parents house and visited for about an hour this morning before walking back.

He insisted on wearing his boots...
The rest of the day was spent nesting!  I had washed his car seat, bouncy seat, swing and rock and play sleeper covers a few days ago.  It was all dry and ready to be assembled and set up, along with the pack-n-play which will be his bed (in addition to wherever I sleep) since we are not purchasing another crib until we move into our new house and get Ayden into his own room.

I know that none of this stuff is really necessary but there was just something about getting it all set up made me feel ready for him.  I guess it's because we haven't been working on a nursery and I just had a need to give him a place of his own, even if it is through bits and pieces of gear spread throughout the house.

I also placed an Amazon order today for the remaining baby supplies that we needed along with a big brother gift for Ayden.

Some other big things that are still left on our "Get Ready For Logan" to do list: put his car seat in the car (I'd also like to vacuum the car and clean Ayden's car seat), a few more items for my home birth kit, do a test inflation of our birthing pool, packing our "just in case" hospital bag and a little "just in case" overnight bag for Ayden, inflate my birthing ball (I did this once already but Ayden pierced it with a screwdriver the next day.  Good thing we have a spare...), putting some curtains up in our TV room where I plan to bunk with Logan on our pull out couch for the first couple of weeks, have a photo printed as a gift for our midwife, finish putting things together for a "busy bin" that will hopefully act as a special treat to keep Ayden busy while I nurse Logan so much in those early days.  If I don't get these things done it wouldn't be the end of the world, other than getting his car seat in the car I suppose, but that's what I'll be working on.  That should keep me busy enough!

What was one big nesting task that made you feel officially ready to have your baby?


Flashback!  Here's what we were up to one year ago today: "Toddler Tuesday: Quiet Blocks"

  1. My Annalee has been in a pack and play since she's been born!
    She has a crib but would prefer her pack and play :)
    I wish I lived close enough to my Mom to walk to visit. I used to and she moved. I miss it.

  2. Yesterday I finished buying all the clothes I needed at a local consignment sale! Now all that is left for me at 37 weeks is to finish washing the clothes I bought, get some batteries for the swing and bouncy seat, clean out our car, and shampoo the carpet!

  3. You look fantastic! How awesome that you only have a few things left to do before baby Logan arrives.
