I think it finally hit me that Kaylee could come any day now and I am not prepared! So, this weekend I put together the crib and changer. Tonight, the dresser. We got a bassinet, stroller, and second car seat base from Freddy and Candy, and we went to Target to buy last minute items that we think we'll need once Kaylee arrives. We can't believe the due date is 4 weeks away!! Where did the time go?
John's honey-do list continues to grow as I keep finding "urgent" projects for him! The house has been sanded and restained (by hand!), I wanted more room in our bedroom so he expanded a wall, expanding Kaylee's closet, moving all the furniture from room to room to room as we figure out where it all goes now, spraying pesticides, painting, deep cleaning and the list keeps going. I figured the easiest thing for me to take off his list was the nursery set, and it makes me feel somewhat productive. Or is it that I feel better about adding to his list if I take something off of it? Hmmmm....
During the last few weeks of pregnancy, Kate listened to Brad Paisley's new song "Then". She didn't just listen to it a few times, she obsessively played the song on repeat, learned every word, and sung it at the top of her lungs while driving. Then one day a few weeks after Kaylee was born, Kate was driving with Kaylee by themselves. Kaylee began to cry...then scream. It didn't matter how much Kate reassured her, pulled over to make sure something wasn't wrong, or attempted to hold the pacifier in place with one arm backwards while driving. It finally occurred to Kate that maybe Kaylee wants mommy to sing to her (although no one else would want this!). So Kate put track #4 on and began to sing. Kaylee immediately calmed down. Low and behold, it's not even mommy's singing that Kaylee likes! It's Brad's!
