Getting Ready

Nesting?  Bored?  Excited?  Call it what you want, but I have been busy trying to get things ready for our baby girl.  I want to get all her clothes washed and put away, which is my favorite part.  I think I'll probably do it as soon as the holidays are over.

The biggest thing we're trying to figure out is the bedroom situation.  We have a five bedroom house, but three are on the main level, and two downstairs.  Obviously we're not putting a kid downstairs by themselves.  Until they're like 12 maybe :)

The plan is to have Kase and Kyla share her current room and the baby will go in Kase's room.  Kase is still in the crib so we need to transition him to a regular bed AND into Kyla's room.  So I'm just not sure on the timing of everything.  Because our bedroom is on the other side of the house from the kids', we will keep the baby in our room for the first couple months.  That way she's not waking the other two up at night and I can do feedings and diaper changes in our bedroom.  I'm nervous about this because with the other two, they were in their own rooms from day one.  But we had such a small house with all the bedrooms right next to each other.  So this will be a change for us.  Hopefully it works out ok and Tyler and I can at least get a little sleep!

Kase sleeps SO good in his crib and has only climbed out twice.  So when do we make the switch to a bed?  And then do we keep him in his room even after the baby is born?  And when we're ready to move the baby in there, we can move him to Kyla's room?  Or do we put him in with her before that to get the inevitable rough days/weeks of them sharing out of the way?

So this ended up being a post with me just thinking out loud.  I'm stressing about the transitions for Kase, but I remember having the same worry when we switched Kyla to a big bed and of course she did awesome.  And I stressed about taking his nuks away and it's like he didn't even miss them.  They always seem to do better than I expect with changes.  I have some pretty awesome kids.  Can't wait to meet baby sister!

PS - Only 8 days until Christmas!
