Two months?!

This might sound silly, but I only just realized that I have two months and twelve days until baby girls due date.


I'm starting to get pretty stressed about getting everything we need, getting her room all set up, picking a name, becoming mentally prepared...oh, and pushing a human out of me. Yea, I'd say I'm particularly nervous about that last part.

So Jordan and I decided last night that now is the time to put our efforts and budget toward getting ready for the baby.

One nice thing about living out here is that there are tons of nice fairly new baby stuff for sale on craigslist. So many people here only have one or two kids, so they have no need to hang on to all the clothes, toys, furniture, and baby gear. It's also usually a really nice brand too. Already we got a crib off craigslist for free. I've been looking, and there are. Bunch of people selling all of their baby clothes together for about $.50 an item. That us going to suit our budget much better than buying everything new. If we can get a ton of day and night time outfits off craigslist, I can go and get the little dresses at baby gap that taunt me everytime I see them.

Thankfully I'm nearly done with the paintings I wanted to finish before the baby came. I haven't made a ton of headway on the watercolors I'm doing for the baby's room, but I thing I'll be able to get everything done.

Still. Pretty nervous. Also excited, but right now mostly nervous.
