This week I’ve been doing a lot of little things around the house. I organized Harper’s nursery, put away everything we got from the shower and went out and bought everything we still needed. I finished hanging all of her clothes, did a few loads of laundry and packed both diaper bags. I cleaned the house, organized the pantry, went to the library, and got my car washed. Tomorrow I go to the Fire Department to have them show me how to properly install Harper’s car seat. L and I met a pediatrician (Gilbert Pediatrics) last week and I meet 2 more this week (Mesa pediatrics and Banner Pediatrics – Dr Amin). I’m hoping to find a pediatrician in the next week. Jenna and I went to Joanns to get fabric for our baby carriers – we are aiming for a wrap style mei tai. I’m new to the whole baby wearing scene, and though I don’t plan to do it all the time, I think it sounds convenient for certain times. 🙂 I also got a moby wrap as a shower gift that I’m STOKED about. I’ll post pics of the mei tai when it’s done. I also started painting the table for Harper’s room and am working on the decorations for her room. L and I bought spice racks from IKEA and painted them to use as book shelves. I am hoping to hang those tomorrow! I’ll post pics when I have some finished products! Hoping to finish up some last minute projects and start relaxing!!
