41 Things To Do Before Baby

I have an unhealthy obsession with to-do lists. I will take more time coming up with things to put on my list, than I do actually accomplishing what I wrote down. So true to form I made an extensive list of things to do before our little man arrives. I wrote down what I could think of off the top of my head and then spent another half an hour searching the web for more things that I was sure I needed to do but couldn’t think of myself. Then I decided to list it here because I can’t imagine I’m the only crazy list lady that needs a little To-Do inspiration. A few things will only apply to my situation but they might remind you of something else you’ve inevitably forgotten.
