Oh buddy, is April going to be a busy month. We're just getting back from California (recap coming tomorrow!), my baby shower is in a couple of weeks, I have another baby shower and wedding shower to go to, along with a baby basics class and a hospital birth tour. We also have friends coming to town to visit, a couple doctor appointments and Junior League commitments. I'm already tired thinking about it all, but at least it'll make the time go fast. It's kind of wild to think that this could be our last full month without a baby if she comes early in May!
A quick March goals recap... nailed it. Seriously, I am so proud of myself haha. I accomplished everything on the to do list except get a new computer. We just have so many other things we're spending our money on right now that I'm going to try and ride this thing into the ground. Now that I've got all of my photos and documents backed up (see how here), I'm not quite as nervous about it just randomly dying on me. So now for April - naturally this months goals revolve around baby, baby, baby!
Baby Shower Host Gifts | Nick's mom and my step-mom are hosting my baby shower on the 16th so I need to come up with thank you gifts for everything they've done for us! I've been considering going the 'shower' gift route - body wash, bubbles, nice lotion and candle, that kind of thing - but it might be fun to do something baby themed, too. Any ideas?
Baby Shower Thank You's | Pretty self explanatory, but I want to have all of these written and in the mail by the end of April. I'm thinking about ordering these thank you's because they pretty much match my invites - so cute!
Finish Nursery| We still need curtains, a lamp (crushing hard on this one), wall art and a few other random things. It's so close to being done though and I can't wait to share.
Spring Cleaning | Tis the season! I have a whole list of stuff that I want tidied up around the house. My organization board on Pinterest isn't helping things.
Book Newborn Photographer | Holy sticker shock. I've looked into a few photographers in our area and can't believe how expensive this is. Does $500 for 15 pictures seem right? Maybe I'm just being cheap! Either way, I need to get someone booked up.
Read Baby Books & Get a Library Card | Nick's sister got us this book that I plan on reading cover to cover because I know nothing about babies and I want to read a couple of sleep books, too. I've heard a lot of good things about this one, taking any recommendations! I also need to get a library card now that I have a Michigan drivers license because buying books really adds up $$ after a while.
Schedule 4D Ultrasound | This one I'm on the fence about. My regular doctors office doesn't do these and actually as long as everything is healthy, the only ultrasound I'll have this entire pregnancy was my 20 week anatomy one. We have a boutique in the area that does elective 4D ultrasounds and it may be cool...
Organize Office | Because it's a m-e-s-s. Everything that was in the baby's room just got thrown in there and I can't even stand opening up the door because it's a disaster area. Must. Organize. ASAP.
Plant Herb Garden | I'm nervous about this one because of my black thumb, but also excited! It'll be my first herb garden and I'm hoping (key word there) to grow basil, mint and cilantro. How cute are these chalkboard markers? Again, any tips very welcome on this front!
What's on your to do list for April? Any spring cleaning?
