30 Days of Countdown to Oliver: The List

I have 30 days left until my due date, June 26. Now, I know it’s highly unlikely Oliver make his appearance right on his due date; however, considering I still have several projects and random things I’d like to get done beforehand, I thought it’d be fun to do a “Countdown to Oliver” segment that includes something specific to do each day up until he makes his appearance.

There will be three slots in the 30 days where I’ll pick a *reader’s idea* of preparing to bring home a newborn and do it. So, leave your ideas in the comments below!

This is a list, in no specific order, of all the things I’ve thought up thus far:

1. Create the segment “Countdown to Oliver” and make list
2. Make a hospital bag
3. Finish our baby registry
4. Prepare the baby’s space
5. Set-up pediatrician visits and appointments
6. Install the carseat
7. Have a pampering day
8. Prepare birthing plan
9. Wash shower curtains, rugs and sheets
10. *Reader’s idea*
11. Finish an art project
12. Finish a book
13. Create an exercise regimen for the final 4 weeks
14. Take a sewing class and make something for the newest babe
