Baby Prep Update: 4 Weeks Out

Welp, we're just a mere 4 weeks away from our due date as of today. I figured it would be a good time to give an update on our preparations.

The first of our new tiny girl's laundry = done! :)

Here's the original to-do list with a few new items added and completed items marked off:

By 8 Weeks out
-Carsens room 
painted, still working on textiles

By 6 Weeks out
-Set up baby book (printing done, assembly in progress)
-Create hospital playlist

By 4 Weeks out
-Hair cut (scheduled)
-Install infant car seat base
-Finalize "the plan" for day-of (primarily childcare arrangements)
-Print & post babysitting info
Pack hospital bag
-Make "last minute" packing list

By 3 Weeks out
-Baby laundry (all clothes done; blankets, bibs, etc in progress)
-Fill dresser & closet (in progress as laundry gets done)
-Set up/clean baby equipment
-Clean nursery
-Stock changing table

By 2 Weeks out
-Set up bassinet
-Clean house for minimal maintenance
-Stock the kitchen

-Prep & freeze dinners for babysitter

There we are! I'm happily on schedule, save for the baby book, but luckily that's not totally essential before she's born. People say this all the time, but I truly can't believe how quickly the weeks have gone by since I first posted this list 6 weeks ago. It almost felt premature at the time, like I was way ahead of myself. All the sudden, we have our 36 week check up tomorrow, and I'll be a busy little bee for the next 4(ish) weeks waiting for this little lady's arrival!
