Thankfully, Brad and I have great families. Brad's parents came down to clean and prepare our house while my parents came and kept me company. His brother and sister-in-law, Kris and Melanie, came down for a weekend and worked wonders on our home. They assembled the crib and dresser, washed all of Poppy's clothes, and helped put the finishing touches on her room. The only thing missing is her!
Now we are likely days from Poppy's homecoming, and we've realized we still aren't ready! We've been spending so much time at the hospital, that we haven't bought all the essentials for her. We still need a baby monitor, mirrors for the car, and most importantly bottles and nipples. Our plan is for one of us to make the dreaded trek to Babies 'R' Us tomorrow while the other hangs with the 'Popster.' We'll finish out our shopping at Target for her Neosure supplement and preemie diapers.
Of course, we thought we had more time to prepare... but Poppy had different plans.
