Update: Bucket List
It's been about a month since I posted my "Pre-Baby Bucket List" and I thought I would give you guys the update on what I've been able to accomplish so far. I'd say I'm doing pretty well and I'm pretty proud of myself on my progress. However, I probably should've added: Get Bimmer on a waitlist at a second daycare, Call the pediatrician, and Buy new blinds for the nursery. Consider them on the list. Anything else you think I'm still missing that needs to get done before she arrives???
Catch up on printing hard copies of my private blog
Catch up on copying and saving the entries from this blog
Figure out how to use I-Tunes and update my I-pod
Save all the pics not currently saved to my external hard drive
Burn CDs of all the pics not currently on burnt CDs
Scan old family photos, post on my photo site, save to my external hard drive, and burn CD copies
Finish as much of Bimmer's scrapbook as possible
Get a crib and dresser for Bimmer's nursery
Unpack the new flat screen TV we got for Christmas

Convince Puff to convince the MIL that she should contribute to this child and buy us our fancy pack 'n play - SOMEONE HAS BOUGHT THIS OFF OUR REGISTRY, BUT I AM NOT SURE WHO
