What's on your 'To Do' list?

Do you have a 'to do' list of things you want to accomplish before baby comes? What's on it?

Here's mine....

-organize kid's clothes in tubs in the attic
-sew up some more PP cloth pads
-crochet a couple more pairs of wool longies
-get bathroom all put back together (we just remodeled it, and all the bathroom stuff is in our room)
-lay new floor (more of a DH project, I'm just the cheerleader on this one)
-buy a few boy outfits, just in case! We are set on girl clothes, with 3 girlies!

That's all I can think of right now...

1. Organize shower gifts & make a list of what we need to fill in.
2. Organize storage room so we can actually put all our shower gifts somewhere.
3. Wash clothes & diapers.
4. Get dresser from Mom & move my stuff into it to have the smaller dresser for baby's clothes.
5. Finish bathroom floor, trim, etc. (we also just remodeled our bathroom, lol!)
6. Get mini-crib/bedside sleeper Dad is making
7. Get mattress for #6 & sheets & protector
8. Get infant carseat
9. Keep up the stretches & belly dancing for an optimally positioned baby!

That's all I can think of for now.

4. Buy a few disposables for the first few weeks
5. Potty rain ds2 (he's making good progress )
6. Reno bathroom (this might not happen until post baby when DH is off anyway)

Buy milk storage bags (I have not been successful at BF so my plan is to pump as much as possible this time and save it, so I will have enough to last a while even if I stop)
Pack a bag
get more clothes
Get Hanukkah decor/gifts together ( I am going to be too busy after this baby comes)
Have shower on Oct 6th, that's it.

Re: What's on your 'To Do' list?

Purge junk and clean so the housework is doable.
Dye and applique my baby layette.
Buy some diapers. Probably sposies for the first couple months.
Buy twin mattress for the 2 yr old who is moving into big brother's room.
Get maternity photos done for the FIRST (and last) time.
Meet with LC to get a BF plan in place (I have mild IGT and my kiddos struggle with jaundice and food allergies)
Have back up formula and bottles if necessary.
Wash the cover on our convertible car seat and adjust it for a newborn.

Dream list:
Get a new mattress. Its old and getting uncomfortable.
Get a new 12 passenger van. Our van is getting old and uncomfortable too.
