hello friends. it's been a little quiet here (on the blog, not in our home) over the past week. we are busy preparing for baby boy and getting everything in order for his arrival. that includes gathering last minute necessities that i had forgotten like disposable newborn sized diapers (we use disposables until the umbilical cord falls off) and stocking up on diaper wipes, getting things ready for this upcoming home/water birth, setting up the birth pool and making sure that we have everything on the list that our midwife gave us to have on hand during the big day. washing little clothes and linens, setting up a space downstairs for baby boy to nap during the day while we homeschool, finishing his nursery corner, installing an infant carseat, catching up on household chores and of course trying to enjoy some good old family time before things around here change, all while keeping up with our regular schedule and other responsibilities.
i feel like this baby is coming soon (i will be 38 weeks on friday) and honestly, i don't feel ready, like this is all happening so suddenly and we are very much unprepared, although on paper it looks as though we are doing pretty good. i think i am worrying too much and am not quite sure where this anxiety is coming from. hopefully it will calm soon.
