And the countdown begins....

That would be the countdown until the day we find out if the baby is a boy or a girl.  July 16th is THE day!  I can't wait.  I can honestly say I am not at all sure how we managed to NOT find out with Lily because I am already dying of curiosity.  LOL  I have so many things I want to do. 

If we have a girl:
Go through Lily's clothes and pick out season appropriate clothes (since they will be opposite seasons)
Make room in the girls dresser and closet for new baby's clothes.
Start pulling out baby supplies and checking for things we need.

If we have a boy:
Go through Lily's clothes and pull out neutrals and probably get rid of the rest (except for a few favs)
Start getting boy clothes
Start pulling out baby supplies and checking for things we need.

I also need to make a final decision on if we want to get a bassinet or not.  I'm not sure why I'm so torn.  Part of me thinks a bassinet is the way to go cause it's smaller than our Pack and play and it will fit in our bedroom better, but then part of me doesn't want to spend the money on one since we have a perfectly good pack and play with a newborn section in it that would work.  Of course we have a crib but I think for the first few nights at home at least we will keep baby in our room so that Lily can get used to having a baby around and hearing a baby cry before we shove it into her room with her.  Cause we're thoughtful like that.  I'm not super concerned about it though since Lily is a pretty hard sleeper and I think once she gets used to it it wouldn't be a big deal and she won't even twitch when baby cries. But I guess you never know til the time comes.

Anyways, my point is, I'm antsy.  I wanna do stuff and I can't do much (or at least it's pointless until we know gender) to go through stuff.

Then there's the question of, if it's another girl, do I re-decorate the girls room?  Which could be really fun.  Re-paint and stuff or just leave it?  It's cute the way it is so I guess we'll just have to wait and see.
