Until the baby is here. 56 days or 8 weeks however you want to put it. But for some reason when it is spoken of in actual days until the due date it seems far, far closer. It could even be few than that 56 days, there is still much to do before he is here and the registry needs to be completed. There are two rooms in the house that need to be sorted, stuff purged and donated and all around cleaned. One will take me an hour max, the other a week. My room is a horrible, horrible disaster every inch of it is covered in clothes or stacked with shoes, bags, luggage and other randomness. I think I even have three fans in there. Who needs three fans in one room plus a ceiling fan? No one but my room became a catch-all. Got to get it cleared out so the bassinet can move in and all that fun stuff. Not that it is hard work but it is going to be a lot of work. Oh well, it has to be done and once it is it will feel good.
Yesterday was the baby shower, it was absolutely wonderful. My friends Heather and Alicia did a wonderful job and Emma was a great little helper. We even brought some men along to help carry things, you need men at every shower to help carry things I swear by this! The shower was a Mustache Bash so there were lots of fun little mustache themed goodies, the cake, little finger tattoos, cookies, chocolate lollipops and touches like mustache on the prizes, invites and bingo sheets. If anyone knows me and my group of friends we are mustache fanatics. They are just good fun! The food at the shower was amazing too and everyone had an all around good time. I am grateful to have so many kind and generous people in my life!
Most of the baby stuff is put away but there is still an explosion of boxes, bags and wrappers littered through the house so that is tomorrow’s project. That should be fun 🙂
Here are some photos from the shower. Thanks Aunt Kathy for taking pictures. I kind of flaked out on doing it myself!
