Car Seat
Find a coming home outfit
Get some stuff together for DS for hospital and a gift

Get a plastic dresser or something for baby things in our room
charge all our camera batteries
Need to Buy: Hospital toiletries, side snap gerber shirts, belly bandit, maybe one last newborn fluff

Re: to do before baby list

I still have all of Lucy's dresses and decorations to finish! We have been sick for over a month around here and I am so behind.

I need to make sure all three car seats fit in the car,
Order the home birth supply kit
and after the shower wash all new diapers and clothes.

Re: to do before baby list

I have a lot done, what's left:

After receiving new insurance card I need to register at new hospital AND update at OB
finalize middle name
install car seat
put baby clothes in closet (hoping I get the closet organizer I want for Christmas)
lanonlize woolies
buy snappis
buy and decorate letters to hang in room
applique 2 blank lap tees
pack hospital bag
get a backup person to watch DS in case MIL can't make it to town in time (I will have a scheduled cs but just in case I go into labor on my own)

I can't think of anything else, most of that will wait until after Christmas I still have Christmas gifts to finish!
