Basically there isn't anything new to report right now. Except that I'm starting to get a little stressed. *original DC news found here. We're not moving until mid-August, but new baby is coming in about 3.5 weeks. I foresee myself being pretty useless (moving/packing/planning-wise) for a while once new baby is here. Oh, fyi we have been referring to the baby in my belly as "new baby" a lot around here. Basically, it feels like I have 3.5 weeks to get quite a bit done. Oy. Figuring out insurance stuff, changing mailing address, actually getting housing, getting plane tickets, all that jazz. And on top of that, I don't know if you caught that, but I'm due to have a baby in 3.5 weeks!
I feel like I was so much more prepared when we were getting ready for Fox to come. I just now realized I need to make sure new baby has a pediatrician -of course we'll use the one we already have, but I had totally forgotten I need to take care of that before baby gets here. Also, what did I pack in my hospital bag last time? Is there anything I should be buying before new baby gets here? I have bought NOTHING. I feel like I'm just trusting that we still have everything we will need from when Fox was born -I should probably double-check on that. I am however very proud of myself: we are taking a birth prep class this weekend. Yay for being somewhat prepared! But really, I'm so excited for our class -anything that makes this baby seem more real has just been making me more and more excited.
Sorry for this jumbled post. I just needed to write everything out, you know. And I know I forgot to mention it, but even though I'm feeling some stress, I am also so excited for our move. I feel like this change will be very good for me -even if it's just temporary. This week, we set a goal to get our DC housing all figured out. Pray for us.
p.s. No, the picture above doesn't really have anything to do with this post:)
