Getting Ready for a Baby!

Recently, I've been thinking about all of the things that we need to do to get ready for our new little one...

I made a spreadsheet with our adoption expenses -what we have paid and what is looming in the near future. I don't want to think about that anymore! That is a matter of prayer!

Our Yahoo! group has been discussing bottles, and I had forgotten that baby bottles were toxic. Most commonly-used bottles leach BPA into the milk which can affect hormones and development. (Link to plastics guide here!) Having only used bottles part-time for the first 3 weeks of Jeremy's life almost 10 1/2 years ago, this is pretty foreign to me, and I'm praying that our baby will just nurse. LJ has some glass bottles for me to use also.

Although, we'll most likely co-sleep with our new baby as we have our homemade ones, my sister loaned us crib, and it is set up. I've tucked in my $3 Dollar General Store baby, "Elijah," to sleep in it, but unfortunately, I've also piled clothes on it as it is conveniently located next to my side of the bed!

We've got closets to clean out and and a garage sale for which to gear up! I guess I'm feeling like nesting a bit! We've got to make room for the new guy! So much to do!!!
