The Before Baby To Do List

(This is Eli when he was just a week old! Isn't he precious? I thought he would be good on the baby list!)

1. Make and Freeze meals and snacks so we can eat after the baby is born. I will post this list later.

2. Paint baby room. I cannot do this until we know if we are having a boy or girl, next month hopefully!

3. Go through guest room, that is to become baby room, and clean out JUNK! Get rid of junk.

4. Figure out a place to put the piles of maternity clothes I have, which I am very thankful to my cousin and sister for their contributions!

5. Go through all of the baby clothes, toys, and accessories that are in storage, so I can see what I have and if anything is needed.

6. Rearrange furniture between Eli's room and the baby's. We need to move the crib and switch dressers and transition Eli to a big bed this summer.

7. Basically go through each room in the house and clean it out. I should have a garage sale, but I don't think I can do that. Instead we will be making numerous thrift store trips or posting on FreeCycle or Craigslist.

8. Deep cleaning of things like base boards, ceiling fans, walls, etc.

I will amend this as needed, which I think will be often as I realize more that needs to be done!


  1. I plan on making a couple trips down this summer to help out so we can hit this list hard then!
