We have the assembled crib and a name, and that's it.
You and I can be in the bad-parents club together.
jdp:So...she has no room, no crib (have it, but not assembled), no clothes (have, but not washed), no diapers, no NAME!! Oh, but she is loved....that's all I've got so far:)
Sounds to me like she has most of what she needs right there. The rest will get done in plenty of time.
I can relate! We're in the middle of a MAJOR renovation, so the entire house is a mess. (And, we're planning a home birth. ha!) Until we can get things finished up and cleared out, there's no room to even order a crib.
The only important item I have is a carseat, which is currently in the box since we're still using our vehicle to transport construction materials.
I'm CD'ing, so I do have some diapers ready to go, but I haven't purchased the diapers we'll need for those early meconium days.
Love? In abundance!
I keep reminding myself that babies really don't need much. Most of the things we think they need are really conveniences for us.
On my computer is a list of Bare Bones Items that I want to make sure we have in place when the baby comes. Everything else, we'll do without until we can get the house finished up. You know what's at the top of the list? Momma, Daddy, Love. I figure that covers almost everything, especially since we're EBFing.
