I Think We are as Ready as We Can Be

And thank goodness since he is due in 3 days!!! I just finished with my last (as of now, but who knows what I may come up with later) prep in his room and our room to get ready for him. Below are pics of all of our baby ready stuff.

Munchkin's room.

Munchkin's closet with most of his newborn and 0-3 month stuff. Plus a very curious kitty.

Daddy's drawing of me & Fin :) He has a white board in his room so I'm sure he will get lots of funny drawings throughout the years.

The baby side of the room. The other side is the guest bedroom side.

The other bookshelf of baby stuff.

Glider in our room. I love craigslist! $100 and it was brand new in packaging!

Awesome bassinet that a friend is lending to us. So nice to have friends who are willing to share!

Cute elephant humidifier. Don't recommend this brand if you have hard water. Our water is crazy hard and after less than a month its causing problems. And we have cleaned it out and maintained it as recommended, but the calcium build up is CRAZY!! We have had others that worked much better, but they aren't cute little elephants.

Borrowed swing (again, love my awesome friends), birthing ball, breastfeeding pillow & playpen (the gray bundle) all ready to be put to use.

ADORABLE sock monkey hat that my sister-in-law Liz made! I still have to add black button eyes. I can't wait to get a picture of him in it!!

So I think that we have most of what we need. We have a good stock of diapers for the first few weeks. The baby tub and towels are in the bathroom. Cloth diapers are in the laundry. So here we go...


  1. Love all the pcs! looks like you are definitely ready to go. You just need Fin to arrive! ;) thanks for the advice for the humidifier, I was looking at that one and the calcium build up sounds annoying! :s Good luck in the next few days, keep me posted!

  2. Ack!!! Can't believe you are so close to your due date! It's been a long journey to get here, and I am so proud and happy that you have! Looking forward to the next post we see with fantastic news :)

  3. Aww, everything looks so great! I can't believe it's time for his arrival already! I hope you have an easy and quick labor, good luck!!!

  4. wow you are so nicely organized ! Love the elephant humidifier, too

  5. That hat your SIL made is ADORABLE!

    Loving the pics, glad you've got everything ready. 3 more days, omg!!! So close! He will be here before you know it... but those last couple of days can be torture!

  6. The nursery looks great! I'm so excited for you :) Any day now!
