I made lots of progress over the last few days getting the bedrooms and baby stuff ready for this next baby.

1) We bought Nate a new bed. Twin bed, three sets of sheets, a new comforter, wall stickers, etc. to make it feel like it really is his room, too. He loves it, and he and Lily both seem to like being in the same room together. They stayed up an hour later than usual last night, but they've been really good about staying in bed and going to sleep and staying in bed.

2) We got most of Nate's clothes and other stuff from his room into his and Lily's room. Moved a dresser from downstairs into their room for his clothes and we're making progress on combining their stuff into the room in a somewhat cohesive fashion.

3) I went through everything I've been given by various people and pulled all the excess. I had over a dozen hooded towels, tons of blankets, etc., so I pulled all the extras and all the extra clothes, and bagged it up to give back to my sister-in-law.

4) My friend who is having a girl said she will take the rest of the toddler clothing I have, no matter the size. Woooooo hooooooo! This is awesome since I still have 7-10 bags of girl clothes to get rid of.

5) Moved the La-Z Boy out of Lily and Nate's room and downstairs into the family room to make room for Nate's bed and stuff in the room. The chair will be nice to have in the family room, too, for sitting and nursing with the little one.

Add to that cooking and baking for Christmas, decorating, and having company since last Thursday, and we've been very busy!

We have more to do: put the toddler bed back together as a crib, turn the bookcase back into a changing table, and put away all the holiday decorations (next week).

I'm feeling almost ready for this baby to arrive, and I'm not due for another 10 weeks. I just hope I don't have him for at least 7 more weeks. :)
