Getting Ready for Baby



I can not believe how fast this pregnancy seems to be going. I am already in my second trimester-whew. I am enjoying every minute of it. I have been thinking what to premake for my family while I am in the hospital. When I am not around I know they are lost in the kitchen, so my hamster wheel is spinning about easy things I know they can prepare and love to eat--like premake the taco meat and freeze it--shred the cheeses and chop all the veggies up so they can ensamble them easy. Bake a chicken and make Chicken and egg noodles, which they love. It will only be gone for a couple days, so I really don't have to go wild..LOL. Also, when I arrive home, I have my everfaithful crockpot to use, and my best and dearest friend close by, who has already said she will be here:)

As for preparing for baby, I already have a diaper bag from Alexis, which is in almost perfect condition. I don't need any bottles or warmers or anything that goes along with that sort of stuff--I am very pro-breastfeeding. I seriously doubt the number of women who say they can't breastfeed is actually acurate, kwim? Okay I will not go there in this post. BUT, breastmilk is the best for baby. I started crocheting an afghan for baby--I started it in yellow, because even though the doctor says it is most likely a boy--I am still not convinced being soo early to tell. I don't need a crib, baby will co-sleep--it helps me too--with sleep--no getting up making bottles, etc--all I have to do is comfortably breastfeed my precious one.

Okay that is all for now on this subject--I have so many ideas to write about, about getting ready for baby, but I still have about 6 months to go, so I won't make a super long post--because, I personally don't like reading novels on blogs either..LOL.

Have A Blessed Sunday xoxox
