Each day we know we have to be "ready" to become parents -- "ready" meaning that we know it could happen any time now. We were wondering if we'd possibly have our little one early, but then why the heck would it want to come into the world right now with these unbearable wind chills? Smart baby : )
That said, when it does arrive it's got lots of stuff to wear, play with, look at and sleep/eat/poo/pee in. The gadgets and gear are especially fun. Everything rocks and/or makes sounds, so everything needs batteries. And of course, they don't all need the same type of batteries, but all different types of batteries. Good thing we just joined Sam's Club!
Of course, we've tested everything out, especially the baby monitor with the video screen. Ella's been our guinea pug for that. She's been adapting well to the minor changes around the house so far. While she's been good around babies who have been visitors to our house, it'll be interesting to see how she deals with one that is here to stay. And I know what you're thinking. It'll be interesting to see how Jay and I deal with that reality too.
I see many a sleep-deprived post in our future ...
