Well hello there, and welcome to the first day of April!
I apologize to anyone who was sucked in by my April Fools Day birth announcement on Facebook... but come on guys, did you really think I'd actually name my son Marshawn? You'll find out soon enough...
It's official, we can start saying that Baby Boy will be here NEXT MONTH!
I've been obsessing quite consistently about Baby Boy's upcoming birth lately. And I realized that I've been so focused on getting everything ready for him that I forgot I'll need some things for myself as well. Luckily my very dear mommy friends have been extremely helpful in sharing their postpartum knowledge with me, so I've been developing quite an extensive list of things that I'll need after he's born. And this past weekend Cailin was kind enough to spend the day with me shopping for some of the necessities.
As you can see, we mainly focused on clothing. At Destination Maternity I picked up a seamless clip down nursing bra, two V-neck pull down nursing tanks, and three sleeveless clip down double opening nursing camisoles. Then at Macy's I picked up a super cute, soft, comfy robe (because I don't plan on wearing that nasty, stiff gown they give you in the hospital), as well as two more nursing bras and two nursing night gowns that should be prefect for summer.
With all that stuff, my ta-tas should be readily available so I can be Baby Boy's personal milk factory.
So now I'm feeling pretty good about hospital and lounge wear for those first few weeks, but there are definitely some other items I still need to check off my list. Most of them I won't share with you here because my poor husband reads this and he doesn't need to hear about granny panties, sanitary and breast pads, nipple cream, laxatives, and Preparation H (sorry babe).
But what I wasn't able to find over the weekend was slippers. I need some nice, soft, comfy ones that I'll be able to fit my hobbit feet into, but apparently Macy's doesn't carry them and we were running short on time. I hear Costco and Sears are good places to look though...
Other than that I spent my weekend seeing friends, relaxing and nesting. Stew was in Vegas for Matt's bachelor party, and it sounds like they had a blast. They only took about 2.5 photos so I don't have much to show you... Typical boys. Unless they just deleted the evidence prior to getting home (more likely).
He did send me one photo early on of the Lamborghini he drove, though. Pretty cool.
Anyway, please let me know if you have any postpartum favorites that you think I should check out!
