Continuing the thoughts from my last post, as I hit 34 weeks pregnant today, we’re headed deep into “new baby mode” here at our house. I’m getting that itch to get as prepared as possible, which means lots of house projects, organizing, painting, cleaning, and list making. The last time we did this felt so much more simple. I laugh now at how worked up I got about packing a simple hospital bag and figuring out who would take care of our dogs while we were gone.
This time the focus is mostly on Cullen — making plans for his care while we’re at the hospital (which is a post for another day!), and doing our best to prepare him for a new arrival that is going to change so much of our day to day life. It’s hard to know what to expect, how he’ll handle a new baby, how he’s feeling now, etc. – but we’re doing our best to ease him into the transition gradually and comfortably.
Here are ten things were doing to help him prepare for the arrival of his little brother!
