Knox really did pretty well for himself on Christmas. Our house is so full of stuff, it is kind of insane. Our parents went a tad bit crazy with his first Christmas presents, and it really makes me wonder how nuts it will be once he is actually here! We got the Chicco pack and play and Arms Reach mini co-sleeper bassinet from my mom and stepdad, and the red Chicco Cortina travel system and second car seat base from Trevor’s parents.
Of course, we also got piles of new baby clothes and other necessities. It took Trevor MANY trips to the car to get everything inside. We also got the closet organizer with little fabric drawers, Trevor still needs to put that (and everything else!) together. I am so excited for all that organized storage space!
I still have three more loads of baby laundry to do, I don’t think I’ll ever finish it because it keeps multiplying! His dresser is almost full, already, which is crazy because it has some seriously deep drawers. Once I finish this laundry, it will be bursting at the seams. Oh, and the closet is pretty full, too. I feel like I have SO much to do before Knox gets here. I still need to wash the bottles and pacifiers and make some room in the kitchen cabinets for his feeding items. I am planning on breast feeding, but I know there will be times where I will be more than ready for Trevor to take over a feeding, so we did need some bottles!
We are going to make a run to Target tomorrow (my one hour outing for the day) to get all the little things that are left that we need (like Mylicon drops, bottle nipples, etc) and our swing. I am excited to get that all done and out of the way so I can TRY to get everything else organized. I so badly want to clean our house from top to bottom, but I am relegated to straightening very small segments at time and delegating all the rest to my husband.
It is insane to me that in just over two weeks, I will be taken off bed rest and then Knox could literally come anytime. It’s kind of terrifying. I had a stressed out day today, and I think that’s why. I start to panic about Knox’s health, going to the hospital, how I will handle labor, everything. I am trying to stay positive and just focus on all these things I have to do to prepare and not think as much about the stressful parts!
Trevor playing with the Trio toys (like Legos for littler kids) my mom bought for him and Knox. He cannot wait to build Lego castles and pirate ships with our son. I have a feeling that Knox won’t be playing with them as much as Trevor and I will!:
