And no, I haven't done any baby laundry yet. So far I have just hung everything up and made a spreadsheet of the inventory. It's easier to shop for things we need now than it will be later. I even put said spreadsheet on my Palm Pilot so I could refer to it at the store, but twice now it has crashed my Palm Pilot while at the store (only to act fine when I get home) so I resorted to a sticky note of the items we still need.
One troubling thought that I keep pushing to the back of my mind is How do I dress this kid? I mean, is a onesie like underwear or a regular shirt? Is a long-sleeved bodysuit and pants going to be enough warmth in February? Does an infant need shoes? Are the pants that snap all along the inseam going to make diaper changing easier or more difficult than the ones you just pull off? How do you get a body suit on the kid when there are no snaps at the neck - pull the crotch end over little Nelson's/Cordelia's head and torso and then somehow fish out the arms? Do they give lessons on this in Labor & Delivery?
I am not so fun to dress these days. One particularly annoying thing I am trying to avoid is maternity outerwear because I think it's a misuse of money to buy a coat for just a few months. AND a prevalent trend is a tie belt on jackets this season - even maternity jackets - and I think it looks awful to combine that with a baby belly. My down coat still zips around the baby and I just got a maternity sweater jacket at Ross for $12, so otherwise I will be wearing my regular coats this season with my belly frugally sticking out.
