I've been journaling for our little guy. I started it shortly after we found out we were pregnant. I don't write daily or even weekly, just when there are milestones to touch on.

My parents did the same for us kids, but started it when we were born. I should ask for mine now since I'm pregnant and expecting. I don't know how often they wrote in it or what they wrote about, but I hope to give this one to our son so that he can read about how I felt and the big things that happened when I was pregnant.

It's my hope that I'll continue to write in it after he is born, but I know I'll be very busy once he arrives!

In the mean time I'm trying to get things put together, including his room, stocking up on diapers, and keeping on top of cleaning so that when he does get here I don't feel like I'm under water from the beginning.

This last week his crib arrived, but I haven't gotten it put together. I haven't even gotten it upstairs. The box is sitting in front of our breakfast bar, but it's too heavy to carry up stairs, so Josh and I will have to unload it and carry it up pieces at a time. I'd like to get the crib and changing table put together soon. I'd also like to buy a crib mattress and the crib bedding but Josh thinks I should wait. I'm so impatient and want to get it all put together!

I can't wait to see the finished product!

I'm glad that you got the crib and stuff! Yah, when our crib/matress came, we dropped everything we were doing and put it up together. It was great!
I totally understand the excitement and instincts to just want everything ready. I would listen to Josh some though, because you are 4ish months away still and you have time. Word to the wise though, get big stuff or very time consuming stuff done before your last month, because the last month EVERYTHING exhausts you.
Love you,
