Wow - we're in the double digits now.

There are only 99 days left in our countdown to Parker's arrival. I don't know where the time has gone. Since that ticker changed I have felt like there is a sudden rush to get things done. I know we still have 3 1/4 months until I am due but you never know what could happen and when he might decide to make his appearance. I guess I really shouldn't feel too rushed...there is Emilie, who only has just a few weeks to go until her little guy makes his appearance and it seems (through her blog) that she isn't in a state of panic like I am. I have a to-do list a mile long and if the last time around is any indication of how quickly I will get things done, I will be packing my hospital bag the day that I go in and we won't be installing the car seat into the car until the day we bring Parker home from the hospital! I am feeling the push to get things done. Maybe I should make a daily list so I can accomplish these things little by little, rather than looking at an enormously long list and feeling stressed out by it.

LOL Kristine! Believe me, I have my stress triggers, too. :) But I guess we are doing pretty well on getting things checked off our to-do list. Don't worry - you will, too!

LOL...when I read about you guys putting the car seat in the car the day you take him home...yeah, that is what Jordan and I did with Hailey, he left to install the seat while I was in the room with little Hailey and it took him like 2 hours (!??!!) to install it. Yeah, we totally weren't prepared, even though she was only 1 week early. Oh, and I packed my bag after my water broke. Heck, we didn't even have her pediatrician picked out. I was a major slacker. I'm sure you'll be able to get the stuff done...plus if you need any help, I'm like 50 steps (leaps?) away! :)
