How I Tackle the Nesting Instinct

It comes and goes. I am talking about the nesting instinct. Mikayla's dresser arrived today and Joe put it together. I am moving stuff around and slowly getting Lily's room ready. It helps me to make lists and I will cross things off as I get them taken care of. Most of the stuff I need to purchase.

* Bedding for crib - Mom is working on
* bath pillow
* Have Joe lift crib mattress
* From the garage grab swing, carseat, play mat and bouncy chair. - Need to wash these covers as well.
* curtains or blinds for windows - I decided at this time I don't need to worry about this.
* incline to sleep - Done - I purchased this today from Babies R Us.
* Cover for carseat - Done - Bought this on ebay and I am waiting for it to arrive - actually I bid on 2 my accident - I am hoping my other bid gets overbid! **Update - I was over bid on by $1 - that was close.
* Swaddle Blanket - Done - Bought this on ebay and I am waiting for it to arrive!!
* Lamp
* 3 tier draws (small) - Done - I grab one from my room and emptied it and put this in the babies room. I set the lamp on top.
* diapers - Done for now I have a stash of cloth diapers and disposables. If I decide I need more cloth diapers I will purchase them later.
* Music maker with lights

* binkies - Done - I purchased these today2 - nipples for bottles - This one is being put on the wait list as well. I am not going to worry about pumping for the first couple of weeks so I don't need to worry about this and numbers 3 and 4 until after she comes. 3 - breast pump 4 - parts for pump

I am ready for Lily to come even with a few things on the list. If she would arrive tomorrow we would be just fine.

So you decided on a name! Lily! I love it! My old roommate's daughter is Lillana May and they call her Lilly. It is such a great name. :)

You don't have too much to least most of it just involves shopping :) Is the nursery all done? You'll have to post pics.
