Yesterday was a very productive day for Jeremy and I! We started off the day with a Starbucks run. This is typical before most doctor’s appointments since they are usually in the morning. For some reason we were both off and got up and ready an hour earlier than we needed to. The plan for the day had been to do baby shopping and finish getting the things that were still on our list. Because of our early departure, we were able to hit Target before our appointment. Armed with gift cards and coupons, we made quick work at Target! Our doctor’s appointment went well. I’ll see our doctor every week now until the baby comes. That seems strange. It is still hard to believe that we are at this point. After our appointment, we took on Babies’R’Us. We were able to again to use coupons and gifts cards. The savings were great and we even got a free umbrella stroller out of the deal because we spent a certain amount of money.
Lunch was a treat at Olive Garden. The fun thing for me was just getting to spend one-on-one time with my hubby. Our time together lately has been with people and his free time is spent it the woods chasing deer and elk, so a day to just hang out and do things together was greatly appreciated. After a couple more errands, we headed home with a full car. Now we’re good to go. We are as ready as possible when it comes to baby “stuff” anyway. I spent the rest of the afternoon washing things and tucking them them away carefully into their new homes in the nursery. I am happy to say that the shopping list is complete and so is the nursery! I’ll actually be able to show you the finished product in pictures today! Hurray! On a random side note, we were able to get a free breast pump through our insurance and that arrived yesterday as well. Free is always something to get excited about! It seemed fitting since the day was dedicated to preparing for baby. I’m very happy with the diligence we’ve taken to get good deals and spend our money wisely. There are a lot of start-up costs when it comes to having a kid. It feels good to have this part of the preparations behind us. Now It’s just time to wait. I’ll be full term in a week, so really baby could come at anytime! We’re as ready as we’ll ever be!
