Just before the time comes for a new birth everyone goes through a stage of getting the physical and mental environment ready.

We cleaned the girls room, and the living room, and the babies room.

Baked some pumpkin bars, a pumpkin pie, apple pie, cherry pie.

Canned 2 bushels of tomato products.

Found a hotel room for the grandparents.

Networked with friends for food and help for the husband.

Put simple meals for husband to cook in the freezer.

Finished a quilt.

Bought the new car seat, changing pad and bassinet.

Took down the tomatoes and planted garlic.

Picked out a name.

Decorated the babies new room.

What we have not done is slept through the night, made it more than 2 hours without a potty break, or remembered where we set down those lists of things we need to do.
