I thought today would never get here. And it's dragging by so very slowly. :(
Yesterday it occurred to me that while I've taken care of plenty of babies, I've never been solely responsible. I use 'solely' very loosely, of course. I have the best partner for this. But I've never felt this kind of pressure to know so much about taking care of a baby. It's one thing to provide supplemental care for a baby that's already being raised by someone else but to have to provide everything? Skeery.
Things we need to do before Izzy is born:
1. Rearrange the bedroom to accommodate a crib. I know we have plenty of space for it, it's just a matter of finding the BEST place. Mustn't be right by the window or by a door or in a draft.
2. Put bookshelves in the bedroom/get books out of the spare room.
3. Childproof cabinets! Can't put that off till she's crawling around or it'll never actually get done.
