October Goals and September Goals Recap month is here!  We are scheduled for a c-section on Friday, October 30 so unless something crazy happens, this baby will be here this month!  And because of this reason, most of my goals are all about preparing our home of three for one more. 

October Goals:
  • Figure something out for nurses gifts to take to the hospital - any ideas?
  • Pack snacks for hospital stay
  • Have both kids car seats professionally checked
  • Have hair cut/colored before baby comes {and maybe a mani/pedi and eyebrow wax if I can find the time}!  It will be a long time before I get around to these things again after baby comes. 
  • Stock up on freezer meals
  • Put together double stroller
  • Setup our baby gear downstairs - I'm not supposed to do stairs after my surgery and of course the nursery and Jack's room are all upstairs along with most of the baby gear so I'd love to get some of this stuff settled downstairs. 
  • Family pumpkin patch trip and/or County Fair trip
  • Date night with Jason
  • Extra hugs, kisses and snuggles with Jack


September Goals Update:
  • Pack hospital bag for me
  • Pack hospital bag for Baby Colin
  • Dentist appointment for me
  • Order "Big Brother" gifts for Jack...let me know if you have any ideas!  
  • Install the baby carseat 
  • Read at least one book for pleasure - FAIL
  • Finish my Colorado trip recap post - FAIL...really, when will I ever do this!  The trip was back in June!  I just can't get motivated on this one!
  • Decorate the house for fall - Half FAIL...started, but plan to finish this weekend!
  • Take maternity/family pictures
  • Do a 3D Ultrasound just for fun
  • Start prepping at work for maternity leave
  • Find a nightstand and lamp for nursery - last of nursery prep!
  • Order some new nursing nightgowns/robe for hospital and after
  • Soak in lots of time as a family of three
  • Rest more!
  • Try to do small, thoughtful things for my husband and friends to know how much I appreciate them
