Getting Ready for Evie

We’ve finally come up with an action plan for the new baby’s stuff & for the house, last minute as always.

Lots to do… I’m glad we waited until I can barely move to figure things out. I really don’t see how this will get done before she gets here. 😠

Things to do to get the house in order & before baby comes:

Sewing-room / Evie’s Nursery:

  • Move the spare bed out of the sewing-room, to curb. Call for pickup.
  • Move Bronson’s dresser into the sewing-room for Evie’s clothes.
  • Clean all new baby stuff in dye-free detergent before putting away.
  • Move Bronson’s glider into the sewing-room.
  • Move game-room closet stuff to master closet.
  • Move sewing-room closet stuff to game-room closet.
  • Use sewing-room closet for Evie’s clothes, &  stuff.
  • Buy new crib mattress & set up crib in sewing room.

Other Evie stuff:

  • Clean & reorganize master bedroom.
  • Get bassinet out of garage. Clean. Set up next to master bed.
