That’s right – our due date is only one month away from today! It’s hard to believe how fast the pregnancy has gone, but thankfully we’re slowly getting things ready. We picked up the dresser/changing table from Sears this weekend (no assembly required this time) and got our crib mattress on Friday, so I think we’ve done as much as we can in the nursery right now. The second baby shower is happening this weekend here in Grand Forks, so that will most likely mean a lot more stuff to organize.
If I remember correctly, I think we’ve only got a couple more classes at the hospital before the arrival. I’m attending a “daddy boot camp” on Saturday morning to get some advice and encouragement from recent new dads. A few of my friends in Grand Forks have attended and found it helpful, so I’m looking forward to it. We went to the birthing class last weekend, which was better than both of us expected. The instructor taught us some Lamaze breathing, but Casey has done her research and likes the Bradley Method philosophy, so we didn’t spend too much time practicing the somewhat funny breathing patterns.
So, while things are getting done and falling into place, time has gone really fast. I don’t expect the final month to slow down any, so before we know it, Baby Berbs will be here!
