16 Weeks

Well, the nausea and fatigue didn't go away this week either, so much for that. Smells were also getting to me more this week, and for some reason Ryan eating a spoonful of peanut butter turned my stomach (even though I eat peanut butter every single day with no problems). I've also been more forgetful lately. I've now forgotten to put deodorant on twice in the last 3 weeks (at least I have a spare at work now), and forgot to put makeup on yesterday too (for I believe the first time in all of the nearly eight years I've been at my work).

When I was pregnant with Josie, we had put together a list of all the stuff we needed to research and make decisions on so that we wouldn't have an overwhelming amount of things to work out right at the end. I did a similar list for new baby, and while Josie's list was apparently 84 items long, new baby's is at least only 44. This is still longer than I thought it would be, but I guess it's not as bad since it includes some stuff we need to do for Josie to prepare for new baby too (e.g., get her some new furniture, move her to a big girl bed to free up the crib, etc.). I'm a bit behind schedule so far until my finance class finishes up (hopefully I'll get my final done next week), but so far I've done a stellar job crossing off items during any week other than the one I had assigned them to.

Regardless, the first big project was to sort and put away all of Josie's old clothes, which took many, many days. It turns out she had a lot of clothes. Once that was finally finished, next up was stripping and prepping our cloth diapers. Obviously we don't need those for a while yet, but I wanted to sun them while it was still nice out... unfortunately, we apparently had a pocket of rain that occurred pretty much just in our yard, so they didn't get to sun for too long, but the one sizes are all snapped down now for a new little baby, the pocket diapers are stuffed, and everything is ready to go when it's time :)
